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!

It's another two week mega haul! Though thankfully this time, it wasn't as much as I thought it would be! Though I did get my OTSPSecretSister gift and my very first LitCube, so it was all still pretty exciting!

Here's what I bought:

 Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff, Ill. by Marie Lu--Keeper copy! Couldn't NOT get this!! Plus I need to see Marie's drawings!! :D
Bound by Blood and Sand by Becky Allen--heard good things about it, it was on sale and I had a coupon so it was a win win! And extra awesome was that it arrived in a DAY! B&N has never shipped me something SO fast with my member shipping before! It was awesome!
Replica by Lauren Oliver--succumbed to buying this when I was at a signing! LOL! Turned out that Lauren was sick! :(  But she still came and singed all our books before leaving! What a trooper!
The Midnight Star by Marie Lu--I can finally finish the series now!
Rose & Thorn by Sarah Prineas--still need to read Ash & Bramble!
Scooby Apocalypse #6 by J.M. DeMatteis--Still need to start these but hope to...soon!

A gift from my OTSPSecretSister:
Dark Kiss of the Reaper by Kristen Painter
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Supernatural Coloring Book
a To Do List pad
a celestial bookmark
Supernatural magnet bookmarks
Buffy pins! 

THANK YOU Secret Sis!

I also bought myself the Special Tale as Old as Time LitCube! I'll share pictures of the insides in a few weeks! Just in case anyone didn't get theirs right away or were waiting longer to open it themselves!

I loved coming home and seeing this on the porch! Didn't think it was mine at first until I saw my name and then turned it over!! YAY!

Then I also HAD to order myself this once I saw it was out:

The NEW Belle Funko Pop! The one I have is the "hipster" or "nerdy" Belle with glasses and I didn't bother to get the normal Belle before that. I have "Peasant" Belle though. Now they need her in her GREEN DRESS holding a BOOK!!! Yes! Funko DO THIS!!! :D

While at Kohl's I saw in the middle isle these Disney Tsum Tsum "action figures" that come in a blind bag. Generally I am not one to do "blind bags". Because there will be that ONE or two or three figures that I HAVE TO HAVE and I don't want to keep buying them to get that ONE and end up with several duplicates and whatnot. It's very stressful.

But I picked up one of them and after determining which one I NEEDED...Tinkerbell!...I started to feel the item in the bag. Call it cheating, because it probably is! I didn't go as far as to open the bag, I've seen the aftermath of people doing that with the boxes. But I was about 95% positive that the one I had in my hand was Tinkerbell. I had felt about 3 of them and thought #2 was definitely likely Tink. So naturally once I get home I tear it open and BEHOLD!! Tinkerbell!!!

Though I was also very surprised that there was ASSEMBLY required! WITH NO INSTRUCTIONS!! It wasn't too hard, just turning the base and top around to fit the lantern box, but getting those pixie dust swirls on was nearly impossible! As it is, the top one doesn't really stay in all that well, but luckily it's a display piece. Not meant to be played with or touched! ;) LOL!

What did you all get this week?



  1. YAY for feeling up the blind bag and getting what you wanted, Jessica!
