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!

This was a crazy week! The holiday totally throws regular life out the window. This coming week is likely to be hectic. I left work an hour early Friday and I left a few things unfinished, which is no biggie, but thinking about all those little things that I need to do, plus a new hire orientation is already making me wish for next weekend! LOL!

But anyway, here's what I got this week:

The Operator by Kim Harrison--keeper copy
Shattered Glass by Maria V. Snyder--already read, reviewed, and LOVED!

For review I received:

Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder (ARC)

Then my Secret Sister gift arrived:

An awesome fairy tale themed box with a Beauty and the Beast painted picture, stickers, bookmark and necklace
Coloring markers
a pencil pouch with fairy tale items on it
Red by Alyxandra Harvey
Towering by Alex Flinn
Disney Facts Revealed by Dave Smith & Ill. by Al Giuliani--we'll be having some FUN Random Thursdays soon! I'll probably go back and forth between this and my other books I still plan to use!
and best of all: REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS!! Yum!!

Thanks Sis!

And then with my Black Friday shopping, which was done mostly online due to working and whatnot, I bought my DVDs but those haven't shipped yet, but one thing I did buy at B&N was this beauty:


It looks a LOT like the Athena owl statue I bought from the Parthenon in Tennessee but I couldn't help myself!! LOL!

That was my haul! What did you all get?


  1. Enjoy those books, they look fantastic! And OH MY WORD Hedwig is so cute <3
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  2. It's funny that you bought an owl this week as I bought a raven! I didn't get much in the sales compared to previous years but I did get some Kindle books, reduced price GoT stuff and a couple of dvd box sets cheap earlier in the month so I can't really complain!

  3. Oh I like that Owl! I didn't do any shopping, I am not a black Friday shopper.

    Week in Review

  4. Great haul! I got The Operator on audio even though I have an ARC, because I heart Kim's audiobooks! Red was a great start to a promising series, but I haven't heard about the sequel. Enjoy your pretties and have a great week!!!!!

  5. I haven't read any of these books but I know how much you love the Study series so YAY! I hope you love the new one! I love the Hedwig too! I've been admiring the new figurines from afar... Have a great week :D

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  6. I love your SS gift, such a great package! One day I'm going to binge-read all of Snyder's books. =) I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fantastic week. =)

  11. The Hedwig is so awesome! I love black Friday for all the great deals, I only got two dvds (one beauty and the beast) and a new coffee maker. :D

  12. Aw, I love the Hedwig! Oooh, Dawn Study, I know a few people who will be excited for that one! I haven't read the series but it sounds awesome! Enjoy your new reads, Jessica!

  13. Shattered Glass sounds great. I will add it to my TBR on GoodReads. I love the Owl you got, also. Harry Potter Forever!!!

  14. So jealous of your haul! First of all Hedwig looks amazing, I think I might ask for that for Christmas :) Also Dawn Study looks really good, I haven't heard of it before but I'm definitely adding it to my TBR. I hope you enjoy your wonderful book. Have a good week :)
