Stacking the Shelves

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!

This was a rather good week!! After the past two weeks of BEA madness, this week was pretty tame, but still filled with more bookish goodies than I anticipated!! 

Here's what I bought:

 The Last Star by Rick Yancey--so excited to read this one! Yet scared too! It's the finale after all! EEP!
The Hunt by Megan Shepherd--I still need to read The Cage, but I'm a sucker for preordering hardcovers in that $10-11 range!
Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout--yeah...I bought this one because it had a NEW cover!! Lol! I have the original kindle book and the UK book that had its cover, solely just to have it in real book form. Then I saw the new cover and I had a coupon so I ordered it!! Although it took WAY longer to arrive than my membership shipping provides, I was just glad it did FINALLY arrive for this week's STS!

 Isn't it beautiful?!! LOL!

Then I saw Jenna (bookiemoji) on twitter willing to trade her extra copy of Recreated for one of her wishlist ARCs and I just so happened to have one so I immediately messaged her and we worked out the trade!! I cannot wait to read this one!!

Recreated by Colleen Houck (ARC)


And then I received my #otspsecretsister gift in the mail yesterday and in it were some Disney goodies!! So excited to be going to Disney World this summer and the gifts really just have me dancing around even more! LOL!

Dream On by Kerstin Gier--I still need to read Dream a Little Dream, but now I can binge the first two when I get to it!

Then there was an adorable Itty Bitty Hallmark card featuring Frozen, some Mickey Mouse ears stickers and 2 blind boxes that contained Tiana and a Jasmine key chain!


Then I picked up another Funko...because why not? LOL! But seriously it was SAILOR MOON! I ordered the one from Hot Topic because it was the first one I saw. Tuxedo Mask sold out sadly, but I preordered him with Amazon! So I should get him next month hopefully!

Sailor Moon Funko Pop: Hot Top Exclusive

Another random goodie I picked up for myself that I couldn't help but buy:

Yeah, my childhood was calling and demanding I pick this one up! So I did! I listened to it today while running errands and ohh! all the feels I got from it again!!

I used to have this soundtrack on cassette. That's how old I am!! LOL! I still remember every time Lefou sang Gaston, it was the first few lines where he says, "You're everyone's favorite guy!" I would always quip back "NOT MINE!" as a kid!! LOL! And hey, it rhymed! So it worked! And I may or may not have said it again today too! ;)

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


  1. I've been hearing some mixed things about The Last Star,so I wasn't sure if I wanted to read the series or not. I hope it turns out to be epic for you though. I'm really excited for Recreated and can't wait to read it.
    I just re-watched Beauty & The Beast last night! The songs are seriously the best. I can't wait for the live action!
    Have a wonderful week and happy reading!

  2. The last star looks really cool
    Have a happy Sunday !

  3. They're all new to me there! happy reading!

  4. Oooh looks like you’ve got tons of great books this week! And YAY! Beauty and the Beast!! Can’t wait for the new one to come out, although nothing can ever really top the classic :P Happy reading!!

  5. Great haul! I still need to read the Rick Yancey series. If you grew up with Beauty and the Beast you are not old at all. My kids grew up with it and we had the cassette for them. I do love that movie and the music was wonderful.

  6. Oooooh The Hunt! I can't wait to see what you think of it! I didn't enjoy The Cage very much, but I'll probably read The Hunt anyway. Also, YAY for the BatB soundtrack! It's one of my favorites! :D

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  7. I enjoyed The Cage and plan on getting my hands on The Hunt soon.

  8. Very nice haul, Jessica! I hope you'll enjoy all your new books :) Of course, I had to smile because you got a book just because of the new cover - that's a book-lovers perogative :D
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

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