Stacking the Shelves--the HOLY CRAP of EPICNESS (aka 2 weeks worth!)

This weekly meme is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!

This truly was a haul of epic proportions these past two weeks! My credit card is probably weeping by now, but I can't bring myself to care one whit! Though, I still need a job, but I have a little bit of savings to apply to the important things in life...like books! ;)

So basically I had a fabulous two weeks, filled with no willpower whatsoever! LOL!

Here's what I bought:

 Forever by Maggie Stiefvater (UK Ed.)--I found this beauty at HPB and couldn't resist!
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (Hardcover)--I never did buy the original hardcover as I had an ARC, so temptation called me to buy this sparkly beauty too! Saved 20% on its already reduced price!
Deadly Spells by Jaye Wells
Heart of Stone by Kelly Keaton--the paperback version as it was mostly ebook, but once it arrived I learned the cover is that glorious smooth kind and I LOVE those! So it was a win-win!
Cress by Marissa Meyer (Paperback)--for I learned I was in the back with all the other wonderful bloggers! My blog name is right at the tip of my finger there! I gushed!

Luckily in this batch I only have 2 to read! The next batch, I pretty much need to read all of them!

From my trip to Naperville the past weekend, I bought WAY more than I should, but they were ALL SIGNED, so that's always hard to pass up!

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard--SIGNED!
As You Wish by Cary Elwes--SIGNED!
The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson--SIGNED!
Divergent Collector's Edition by Veronica Roth--SIGNED!!! Though I did already have this unsigned, I decided I wanted it signed since all my other VRoth books are signed!
Frostfire by Amanda Hocking--SIGNED!

Then for review I received: 

Dark Debt by Chloe Neill (early copy)
Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey (ARC)
Soul Crossed by Lisa Gail Green (ARC)
Hit by Delilah S. Dawson (ARC)
Soulbound by Kristen Callihan (ARC)
Powerless by Tera Lynn Childs & Tracy Deebs (ARC)
Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep (ARC)--SIGNED!

THANK YOU NAL Trade, Delacorte Press, Full Fathom Five Digital, Simon Pulse, Sourcebooks Fire, Forever, Jennifer Estep, Netgalley, and Edelweiss!!

And then awhile back I sent my books to A.G. Howard to get signed since that was an option and those were returned this week too:

Then I also got swag this week! I got a little from A.G. Howard, then since I had preordered the signed copy of The Shadow Cabinet, I go the special cool swag from Maureen, and then bookmarks from Jennifer!

THANK YOU Anita, Maureen, and Jennifer!!

And that was my oh so awesome haul from the past two weeks!!! What did you all get?!


  1. AWESOME haul, you lucky thing!

    I'll be interested to see what you think of Soul Crossed in particular as was severely tempted to request that one myself but decided against it as I have so much to read already.

    Thanks for stopping by my STS, I appreciate it xx

  2. Soulbound was awesome and I can't wait to have the Wells one! Happy reading!

  3. That's a pretty epic haul! And Naperville! If that's Naperville IL I used to work at their library! It's such a nice city.

  4. Wow so much amazing in one post! I am dying at those signed copies, especially your As You Wish copy! I would've melted if I got to meet Cary Elwes and had him sign something :D Enjoy all these wonderful goodies :)

  6. I have wanted to read Splintered for so long, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. And my sister got As You Wish for Christmas and I'm dying to get to read it when she's done (whenever she decides to read it…). And you got that one signed!!! Ah, so jealous. Thanks for stopping by my STS and I hope you enjoy all you got!

  19. AMAZING haul! I am super jealous of all the amazing books you picked up the last couple of weeks, especially all of the signed ones! I have an ARC copy of Nightshade sitting on my desk at work. One of my students read and loved it, and she is dying for me to read it, so I plan to pick it up really soon. The cover is so pretty!

    Also, would you mind if I asked you some blogging questions? I could send them to an email address if that works for you? Just for whenever you have time!

    Enjoy your books, lovely!
