Stacking the Shelves--Opps! I did it again!

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!

Ahh, the early 2000s! 2000 really with that single! Haha! Because I really did do it again with going overboard! But a lot of these were orders that all just came in this week, much to my DELIGHT!!

So I bought:

 Unchanged by Jessica Brody
Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder--keeper copy!
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder--I didn't have this edition and I suddenly decided I wanted ALL the US editions! Yes, it's weird. But when there's a new set of them coming out soonish, I decided I wanted those and then that I wanted ALL the editions! SO I bought the rest!
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder--this edition I had to buy used. It was marked LIKE NEW. It was not LIKE NEW at all! There was wear in the spin and a bent corner. This should've been marked as VERY GOOD.
Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder--another that I had to buy used and was marked VERY GOOD. This one I'd say was GOOD. Not very at all! The cover had a few bents on the corners. The spine was well worn, but that's what happens you MUST own particular copies and must buy used online. It will do. It's just for collector's sake!
Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder
The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead--SIGNED! Yes! I went on a book buying binge! I wanted to see a lot of authors to get what is likely the last book in said series and since I have the rest signed, my OCD demanded I get them signed now! Since I can't make it to RT this year! SOB!!!
Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott (Paperback)--SIGNED! Yeah I had the original hardcover, but once again OCD is demanding a matching set since this might be a duology! Word lately has been that maybe there might possibly could be a book 3! Let's hope so!!
Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott--SIGNED!
Unleashed by Sophie Jordan--SIGNED! A duology, and I have the first book signed, so yeah, NEED that second book signed! This is a serious condition y'all! Though I feel like all my book buddies here totally get it! ;)

Ebooks I bought:

 Double or Nothing by Kristen Painter
Lion's Share by Rachel Vincent
The Collector's Society by Heather Lyons
Basic Incubus by Nicole Peeler

Then the books my bestie ordered for me for Christmas arrived and she brought those to me this week! Luckily, I did check 2/3 out from the library, so I only have 1 to read and 2 to shelve!!

Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas & Jennifer Graham--read, reviewed, and loved!
Through the Woods by Emily Carroll--read, reviewed, loved, and was scared pretty darn good!

For review from the publisher I received:

Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop (Early Copy)--Still need to start this series, but I should be getting the review book for Murder of Crows soon too! Then I can binge read!! 

THANK YOU Penguin Publishing Group!

Cursed by Fire by Danielle Annett

THANK YOU Danielle!

This is a book from fellow blogger Danielle at Coffee and Characters Blog!

And then last week, I was home alone one night and kind of, sort of went of Disney Store shopping binge! Luckily I didn't buy TOO much, but I did get myself the free shipping limit, but I couldn't resist temptation and all the delightful new offerings! Of course the VERY next day, they had the item I was looking to add to my order, so I talked my mom into buying it for me...for Easter! I already bought her a little something too, but I might need to add something to make it more equal price wise! 

SO anyways here's what I binge bought:

So this is 1 mug with 4 posters from Classic Fantasyland rides! And OMG I was in love with this mug! I'm not even sure I'm going to use it for drinking. It's not dishwasher safe which makes me worry the paint might chip with time and I DO NOT want that happening!

Anyway, the poster depicts 4 classic rides, all of which I remember riding and LOVING as a kid! There's Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
It's a Small World!
Mad Tea Party, Dumbo, and the Carousel--oddly I didn't catch the other two, I just saw Dumbo!
Snow White's Scary Adventures--omg I SOOOO remember this ride from being a kid! And if I recall correctly, the first time I rode it, Snow White wasn't in the ride--according to my mom, since I was 2 at the time--but then when I rode it again at 5 or 6, she was added at the end! This was just such a cool ride I thought because it was a MOVIE ride!

I also LOOOOVED the Peter Pan Ride and the Haunted Mansion! I'm itching to ride the Little Mermaid year, next year, NEXT YEAR!!! Hence why I can't wait for 2016!!

This wicked awesome coaster with the Hitchhiking Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion!--I had a good freak out because when I opened my box, this oh so delicate ceramic tile coaster was OUT of its bubble wrap. Thank goodness it didn't break!!

And finally, the creme de la creme and what got me started on this shopping spree:

a Disney Fairies Collection piece: Fawn! It's one of those limited edition/quantity dolls. I always thought of getting one, but the couple sets were always so expensive. Fawn was a little cheaper for being a single doll! Plus her dress was stellar and I LOVE the Disney Fairies line!

Needless to say, I'll be doing some redecorating/rearranging in my room this weekend! As of writing this post, I still need to do it! LOL!

And that was my amazing haul this week! Not too bad considering out of the 19 books I only need to read 10! So half-ish! I'm tempted to buy another book I've already read so it is an even 50/50! ;)
