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 survived my week!! Barely. As it turns out, my credit card was hacked and when I went to buy lunch for me and my mom, it turns out there was a hold on it due to suspicious activity. I have since cleared it up, hopefully 100% and will get a new card next week sometime. It's just a hassle and nightmare. It really put me in a down mood for the rest of the day. And worse, I couldn't really go shopping happily anymore. Sigh...this is the first time this has happened to me ever, so I was pretty down. But it's taken care of and all will be well soon enough!

At least I got some great books this week!!! YAY books!!! And I don't have to read 1 of them since it's just a UK copy that I loved the cover too! Darn you Half Price Books! (just kidding, I love you and so love that you get UK copies! Keep it up and I'll keep buying them!)

Here's what I bought:

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke--a HPB find!!
Made for You by Melissa Marr--another HPB find! And it's the UK copy!! Of course, pictured from Goodreads is the AU one, as I couldn't find the UK! 
Kingdom of Ashes by Rhiannon Thomas--I still need to read A Wicked Thing, but I have the bad habit of buying the series as it goes even when I need to start it still!
Stray by Elissa Sussman--apart of my Book Outlet haul!
Of Dreams and Rust by Sarah Fine--another Book Outlet haul! And again, a series I still need to start! I have problems! LOL!
Dissonance by Erica O'Rourke--still need to read this one too, I have the hardcover but LOVED this new paperback! The colors are just gorgeous so when Book Outlet had it too, into the cart it went! 

A Preorder WIN:

Titans by Victoria Scott--I won a preorder of this from Victoria awhile back and it arrived on release day! YAY!!

Books for review:

Midnight Marked by Chloe Neill
Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi (ARC)

THANK YOU Penguin, St. Martin's Griffin, & Netgalley!

Then I also bought this:

A new Books I've Read Journal! I found my old one and decided to use this to write better summaries for myself when it came to reading sequels a year later!

I got this in the mail this week:

SWAG from Nicole Castroman! A SIGNED bookmark, postcard, and a nifty little pirate bracelet!

Then I also got this:

A NEW iPhone 6s!! My old phone was a 4s, so an upgrade was long overdue!! I'm still trying to get used to it, but I am liking it so far!

So other than a busy and intense work week and then the dreadful credit card situation, my week wasn't too bad! I'll feel better once I get my new card and things roll back into a more normal routine! What did you all get?


  1. Oooh, you have got some wonderful looking books!! I have heard great things about The Forbidden Wish and can't wait to read that one.

    Week in Review

  6. Oh no! I hope everything was cleared up with your credit card! That's happened to us once before too and it was scary. I hope you love Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and Of Dreams and Wishes! Those were two of my favorites from last year! :D I've never shopped at HPB so I'll have to look into that! Have a fantastic week!

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  7. Yay for new cell phones. Glad you got the hack sorted, that is not fun!

  8. Sorry about your credit card and the hassle, but you're right, at least you got books! Nice haul! I need to get The Forbidden Wish. I hope you enjoy these!

  9. I'm so jealous of all the amazing looking books you got this week. Care to fund my reading habit? :P Obviously I'm kidding (unless you want to, then I'm dead serious. LOL)

    You have a really great haul this week! Can't wait to see how you enjoy everything.

    The reader's journal is really interesting! I hadn't thought about doing that. With me reading so many series, it might do me some good to have something like that. Though, I know me, I won't write in a physical one. Maybe I'll make up a virtual one. Great idea!

    I hope you have a wonderful week, dear!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Yay Titans! I really enjoyed that one. And I cannot wait to read Kingdom of Ashes. Happy reading!

  15. I hope you like Midnight Marked as much as I did.

  16. I've read most of those! I LOVED Of Dreams and Rust, The Forbidden Wish, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, Titans, Stray, Dissonance/Resonance. I didn't love Kingdom of Ashes. I'm reading The Star-Touched Queen two books from now. I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Jessica!
