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!

I had a pretty good week this week! Got some new release beauties that I so can't wait to read!! Here's what I bought:

 Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake--Keeper copy! Yes, I still bought it despite note quite enjoying it. I have high hopes that the next one will hook me like I've seen this one hooking everyone else! LOL!
Witch's Pyre by Josephine Angelini--can't wait to see how this one ends!
A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess--never did read the ARC, but I saw preorder swag and couldn't resist going for it. Now to wait for said swag. Which makes me nervous when it doesn't come during the release week, which I know is crazy to feel that way! LOL!
Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch--I can finally read book 2!!
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco--hearing amazing things about this one and can't wait to read it!
Impulse by Vanessa Garden--belatedly found out that these books are being printed in the US now! Yay! I read Captivate forever ago it seems and while I had a few issues with it, I remember still really liking it and wanting to read the next one that wasn't available in the US! Better yet, I do believe I saw a third book too! So yay!!

For review:

Of Flame and Light by Cecy Robson (ARC)--dork that I am, I didn't open this email until a few days later, I initially thought there would be a mobi or pdf to download inside it. I was wrong. I should've opened it because it was saying they were being sent directly to the kindle and I should add their email to the approve sender list. I didn't do this on the day I should've, i.e.: the day I got the email (I assume). I've emailed the book tour people and will hopefully be receiving it soonish! So I technically don't have it, I should've but it's my own fault! Lol! So hopefully it will arrive soon! But I'm adding it here anyways!

THANK YOU Tasty Book Tours!!

I also added a few other items to my hoard this week, that aren't entirely bookish, but close enough! LOL!

Beauty and the Beast: The 25th Anniversary Edition BluRay/DVD Combo Pack--technically, this is bookish since it's based on the original fairytale, only Disney-ified. But it's Disney, so no justification is really needed anyway! ;)

Then there's this gorgeous necklace I bought from Jenna Black! One of my favorite authors who now has an Etsy shop, called JennaBlackZen! So kinda bookish!

Last week, I saw an instagram picture of this gorgeous set of Tarot cards--it was being pictured with Kresley Cole's Arcana Rising! They were soooo pretty, so I bought a set for myself! So not really bookish, but since I agreed with the Instagramers on their beauty and how they fit perfectly with the series, I'm calling it as a kinda bookish item! Plus a how-to book did come with it, so even more bookish! :D

Then I received my invitation to join the Society! Pretty cool!!!

And finally one more item that's only sorta bookish as it too was based on a fairytale before being totally and completely Disney-ified!

Ariel as a Itty Bitty Biggys! You can kinda see the size comparison as I hold the big one next to the original Itty Bitty.

I apparently have a stuffed animal problem. Which is sad for an adult I suppose, but in my defense, it's DISNEY!! LOL! 


  1. Awesome haul. I love the cover for the new Weird Girls novel. I hope you love all of your new books.

  7. Awesome haul this week! I never read the ARC of A Shadow Bright and Burning either but I'm really curious to see what you think! I considered buying the BatB 25th anniversary edition but I couldn't justify it since I already own the blu ray! :P Have a great week!

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  8. I loved Stalking Jack the Ripper and hope you do too. Lots of great books. I am sure the Robson thing will get sorted. Let me know though if you don't have it by Tuesday..I will speed things up for you.

  9. Wonderful haul!! I'm dying to get my hands on stalking jack the ripper and three dark crowns! I can't wait to read your reviews about them :)

  10. Oh you got some awesome stuff!! I'm excited for Shadow Bright and Burning---it's up next for me for an upcoming blog tour. I've been wanting to start Three Dark Crowns, too, but I've needed to take a break from really dark high fantasy for a book or two lol---I've heard it's pretty dark!

  11. Looks like a lot of fun new stuff this week. Enjoy. Love Beauty and the Beast.

  12. I can't wait to check out A Shadow Bright and Burning. And I'm also really curious about Stalking Jack the Ripper, I might have to pick that one up at some point! Great haul as always!

  15. Sorry for the late comment response! I didn't enjoy Three Dark Crowns either, but maybe book two will redeem the series. I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Jessica!
