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!

First week of the new year was pretty quiet. Though this first 5 day week in the past two, really dragged man! Totally think the country needs to switch to the 4 day work week. It's a lot more balanced anyway! Monday should be the off day, because as we all know, Mondays just suck. LOL!

Anyway here's what I got this week:

YES!! IT FINALLY CAME!! My DELUXE LIMITED EDITION of the Illustrated Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling and illustrated by Jim Kay!! 

This is the first time ever I spent SO much on a book! Of course, after I said I would never spend more than the usual rate for a book again, I preordered a special edition re-release but in hardcover limited edition of another book. But that one was only $50! LOL.

I now have a TON of "coffee table" books and yet no coffee table! As it is, I've made two stacks of them on my TBR trunk!

If that wasn't enough to make my week incredible, I still got a little bit more to share:

A Ghoul's Guide to Love and Murder by Victoria Laurie--the last Ghost Hunter book! And I'm still behind! Sob!
Wylde Magic by Erin Kellison--a freebie read!!
Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder--got this one and Fire Study to complete my collection! I now have the entire first trilogy in the Australian paperbacks! :D
Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder

Then I WON a SIGNED early copy of:

Night Study by Maria V. Snyder--there was much happy dancing with this one!!

And finally, for review from the author I received:

The Vampire's Fake Fiancee by Kristen Painter--I LOOOOVE this series!!! So eager to read Sebastian's story!

And that was my awesome week!! What did you all get?!


  1. I'm a bit late in the Laurie series but I really can't wait to catch up. happy reading!

  2. Nice haul, Jessica! And I can't believe the signed copy of Night Study, lucky you! The HP looks beautiful! I guess next up now should definitely be a coffee table ;)
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading.

  3. Oh my gosh! I'm in LOVE with your Harry Potter book. But I'm scared to know the price. I bought several of the special edition Twilight books way back when, maybe I should try selling them to get that awesome book.

    Looks like you have a great list of books this week. I'm loving the cover and title for The Vampire's Fake Fiancee. That looks like something I'd really enjoy!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier! Hope you have a fantastic week!

  4. Wow!!!! Great haul!!! Looks like you made out like a bandit this week. Talk about getting the holy grail of books. I'm super jealous of you new Harry Potter book. So many lovely new covers. I hope you enjoy all your new books. Have a great weekend.

  5. Great books this week! I really need to hurry up and read Shadow Study before Night Study releases. Happy reading!

  6. That's an awesome win, Night Study. And everyone's loving the HP illustrated book. I've seen a few snapshots, it is cool.

    I am *still* waiting on my mother's illustrated edition. (Pretty pissed about the whole thing.)

    I hope you enjoy your new beauty!

  11. Oooooo! I love that deluxe limited edition! Honestly, franchise get me good, all they have to do is use words like "rare" or "limited edition" or "special edition" and I am SOLD. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous week, Jessica. :)

  12. I love Maria V. Snyder's books! You are so lucky to have won a signed copy!! I really wanted the Deluxe edition of the illustrated Harry POtter, but I could never get past the cost. I'll just look at yours and envy you!

  16. OMG! The deluxe edition is so gorgeous!! If I had extra money I totally would have sprung for that one too. Have a fantastic week! :D

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  17. I sooooo need to catch up on the Ghost Hunter books. Every time I see one on your blog I think...hmm, I need to get busy on that, but then I never do. The covers always catch my eye as well. Don't worry, you'll have a great coffee table some day. We used to have one but with 2 100 pound dogs in the house, you cut corners where you can so no more coffee table - haha. Enjoy all your books.

  18. I'm jealous of your fabulous books. I hope you enjoy them all.
