Stacking the Shelves--the Mega Awesome Birthday Haul!

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!

Hey all! I had an awesome week! Since it was my birthday Wednesday, I got quite a few goodies, both bookish and non!

Here's what I got this week:

Untamed by A.G. Howard
Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes

Then my Book Outlet order came in Saturday...unlike another order I keep being promised:

Loop by Karen Akins
Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine
Homecoming by Kass Morgan--still need to read book 1, and get book 2!
A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd--I need to start this trilogy now that I have them all!
Doll Bones by Holly Black
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
The Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson
Fox Forever by Mary E. Pearson

I mainly started out buying a few books, but then I saw the BEAR, the cute little bear and realized I HAD to have him!! LOL! So I bought these 9 books for myself and then 1 for my bestie! See, I told you guys in my Instagram picture of the entire stack that they weren't all mine! Just 9/10! ;) The whole kit and caboodle came to about $46 with shipping, and four of my books were hardcovers, so that's basically less than $5 a book!! Plus a FREE teddy bear!! :D

Then for review from the publisher via Edelweiss I got:

 Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell

THANK YOU Simon Pulse & Edelweiss!!

Then some Birthday goodies were:

 A very pretty necklace I picked out some time ago. It's hard to tell from picture, but it's a Mystic Fire gem which is a blend of purples, greens,'s beautiful!

 An adult coloring book from my aunt!

 A Frozen bookmark for my collection of bookmarks!!

GIFT CARDS!!! 2 B&N's and 2 Amazons!! And I'm one of those people who will only use an Amazon gift card for books! LOL!

Then some things I bought for myself were:

 The 100 season 2 DVD, Ant-Man DVD, and The Scorch Trials DVD!

This awesome canvas picture/painting of a couture Belle that says: Don't Judge a Book by its Cover

Totally true, but cover love is another thing entirely!!! ;)


  1. Wow! Such an awesome week! I love The 100! Gift cards for books are the best gifts ever. The Scorch Trials was fantastic! Quite a few awesome books as well! Happy birthday!

  2. Of Metal and Wishes!!! Read it, read it, read it!! I loved that book! Great haul! I hope you had a wonderful birthday, too. I bought The Scorch Trials yesterday, I forgot it came out. Enjoy your new goodies!
