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!

I had way too good of a week! LOL! My Book Outlet order came in, then I hit up HPB for their Memorial Day Sale and then B& yeah...I spent too much! Though my Book Outlet was the biggest steal, 8 books for under $35 which included shipping!! And 5 of these books are hardcovers too!

My Book Outlet Order was this:

Persistence of Memory by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Token of Darkness by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes--SIGNED COPY!
All Just Glass by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Poison Tree by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Promises to Keep by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Unleashed by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie--UK COPY!
The Farm by Emily McKay
The Lair by Emily McKay

Then my trip to Half Price Books resulted in 3 books I already own...but in different formats:

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand--hardcover; I have the paperback of this one, the whole trilogy really. But the hardcover was just so gorgeous and it was clearanced at $3 plus another 20% off, so it was a done deal!
Old Magic by Marianne Curley--I never bought the "new" US cover and when I saw this in the clearance section for $2 I thought why not! I LOVE my original paperback naturally, but there is a beauty in this one too! Namely that ring that played a small role in the story!
Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison--UK copy!! I found books 1, 3, & 4 at my HPB and while I would've loved to have a few UK copies of the books, OCD was not happy about the missing book 2, so I just went with book 1! OCD was happy about that! ;)

Then the rest of my bookstore buyings included:

Off the Page by Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer--SIGNED by the authors from Anderson's Bookshop!
The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie--impulse buy and with coupons I got a great deal on it!
Sleeping Beauty Bookmark--a surprising find at B&N! I have this in the smaller size, but I couldn't pass up on the larger size! LOL!

Then for review from the publishers I received:

Pure Blooded by Amanda Carlson (ARC)
The Veil by Chloe Neill (ARC)

THANK YOU Orbit, Netgalley, & NAL Trade!

And that was my pretty amazing week! What did you get?


  1. Love the loot of books you have here! They look wonderful and very dramatic...the covers are pretty enticing. Hope you enjoy.

  2. Awesome haul! I love Book Outlet! I've been using it to fill in some of the series I need to complete. You got some great stuff this week! I was seeing The Veil around and I just requested it. I love Chloe Neill. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Happy reading!

  3. I'm still waiting to see if I get approved for Pure Blooded. The Veil was a book that I couldn't resist. Off the Page was wonderful and it's always nice to get a signed copy. The Sleeping Beauty bookmark is amazing.

  4. Yay for the Neill book and I'm so curious about the new Carlson novel. I have The Farm but I still need to read it. Happy reading!

  5. Off the Page cover is beautiful! You have a great haul and it's always fun to have signed books!

  8. Ooo, Jessica! I've not read any of these! Though I had The Haunting of Sunshine Girl (gave it to another blogger), and I have Off the Page. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Week in Review

  10. I won't deny that I am a bit jealous you got Off the Page personally signed by them! Okay, so I have decided to start my own fortune telling business, and I want to give you my first prediction! Ready? I foresee a lot of fun and exciting reading in your future after this weeks Stacking the Shelves!

    P.S. I'm totally not starting a fortune telling business. I love reading about them like the ones I read about in my Nancy Drew books but I could never be one. I would fall flat on my face! hahaha!

  11. Great haul.Promises sounds intriguing. Have a great week!

  12. Such a great haul! Sounds like you got some pretty good deals, too. Enjoy your books! :)
