Stacking the Shelves

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!

Well, it was an awkward week. I didn't get too much, but I did order some books that should be in next week! All good in my book!

First for review from the publisher, I received:

Garden of Dreams and Desires by Kristen Painter (ARC)

THANK YOU Oribt & Netgalley!

Then a trip to Half Priced Books led me to acquire:

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand--UK edition! And of course I find this one a month after the signing I attended! Oh well! :)
Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier--I had this one in ARC format, now I have the pretty hardcover so that it matched my first two! Now to start the trilogy!

Then from B&N I bought:

Alienated by Melissa Landers

Then I also won Lexxie's, from (un)Conventional Bookviews, Birthday Contest and received a $25 gift card to Amazon! And yes! I spent it already on some preorders!!

THANK YOU Lexxie!!

And then a few items I picked up while in Naperville because I couldn't resist:

a bookmark that says: A good book is a wonderful journey
a magnet that says: Keep Calm and Read Books--much different than the Keep Calm and Read On bookmark that I already have! ;)



  1. Nice haul! I keep seeing Garden of Dreams and Desires around, I'll have to look into it. I really need to read Alienated! Congrats on winning the gift card! Happy reading!
