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!

So I had a pretty good week all things considered. Though the lately constant adding to the TBR Mountain of Doom and the lack of dismantling--mostly because I've been reading my eARCs--gets a little scary! But oh well!

Here's what I got this week:

 Lion's Share by Rachel Vincent--paperback SIGNED!! I have all Rachel's books to date signed! So I had to get this one too! Though I don't have all the compilations of Soul Screamers because I bought those individually as they originally released. But I did buy the last one for the bonus NEW novella. And yeah, I got that signed too! ;)

Plus, SWAG!
 Signed postcards! Now I can admire all the compilations' covers!

Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins--now to read the first book still!
Garden of Dreams and Desires by Kristen Painter--keeper copy! Already read this one, now just to add this to my shelves!
Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong--keeper copy! Thanks to my blogging friend Nereyda, I already read this one and now have the pretty hardcover to add to my shelves!
Gravity by Melissa West--I bought the second one at HPB awhile back and realized I needed the first one. So I used a B&N coupon last week on this! Though it seems unless I want to spend $16 on the next paperback of the final book I might buy digital for that one.
Jinn and Juice by Nicole Peeler--yup! I waited for the paperback for this one to release. Because I love real books despite a lack of room and plus, that cover! So pretty with the purples...I had to be able to have the colors!

Then I was pretty bad and downloaded more books from Netgalley, just as I was getting my queue under control and my ratio back up. So from the publishers for review, I received:

Earth & Sky by Megan Crewe
The Clouded Sky by Megan Crewe (ARC)

And if these are as awesome as I expect, I will definitely have to buy keeper copies because look at these gorgeous covers and colors!!!

THANK YOU Skyscape & Netgalley!

Then from the Easter Bunny--heh heh--I got these awesome bookends! Now I just need to find room for them, because yes, my shelves are full and bookends are not necessary, but these were just TOO awesome!


Yes these are Disney's Haunted Mansion Bookends!! They're creepy head statues or whatever that term is called because it's escaping my mind at the moment! Plus books! Creepy titles too! I love them and cannot wait to find a place before them! Even if I must wait until I get more bookshelves!


  1. YAY for awesome "keeper" copies! Some books really need to be had in hardback for sure!
    Happy reading Jessica!

  2. What a nice assortment of books. I'd love to browse your bookshelves. I have quit doing keeper copies for lack of space. My preferred format now is Kindle. Happy reading!

  3. Lovely book ends!

    I hope you enjoy Jinn & Juice. I need to replenish my swag stack too! Happy reading, Jessica!

  4. I'm really excited for Megan Crewe's books! I love the covers so much! I definitely want to read Rachel's Shifters series soon b/c I loved her Soul Screamers! I also need to check out Rebel Belle!

  5. I loooooooved Empire of Night! And the covers of Crewe's books are gorgeous! I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous week, Jessica :)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  6. I've always wanted to read Rachel Vincent's Shifter series but never got it done. Hope you enjoy all your books.

  7. Oh. My. God. I LOVE those bookends!! I was looking at them in the new HM store at the Magic Kingdom last December and ended up not getting them! They're definitely on the top of my list to buy this year!! The Earth and Sky series looks really good! I can't wait to see what you think because I've had my eye on it for awhile...

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  8. Oh that's nice! many books! I want to try the Jinn one. Happy reading!

  9. Great haul, Jessica! The signed copy is awesome, and I can totally understand why you want to keep up with that tradition ;)
    Those covers for Earth & Sky and The Clouded Sky are gorgeous. I would want those just for the covers to grace my bookshelves, too.
    I hope you'll have a wonderful week ahead, Jessica. Happy reading.
