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 was a pretty good week this week. I was most excited for Caraval's release and as you might have seen by my review, I've already read and loved it! I picked up a few new titles this week too! Mostly preroders and a few review books I am excited for! Cannot wait to read these!

I bought:

Wires and Nerves by Marissa Meyer and Illustrated by Douglas Holgate
Caraval by Stephanie Garber--already read, reviewed, and loved!!
The Beauty and the Beast by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve & Illustrated by MinaLima--this is one of those super awesome interactive editions with all those pullout thingys like the Peter Pan and The Jungle Book ones they've done already! Perfect timing to choose this one this year! LOL!

Here are some more pictures of the inside:


Then in an awesome trade from EllenTalksBooks I got a SIGNED copy of Vassa in the Night!! 

Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter--SIGNED!


Then for review from the publishers via Netgalley I received:

Cashmere by Temple West (ARC)
Sparks of Light by Janet B. Taylor (ARC)

THANK YOU In Media Res Publications, HMH Books for Young Readers, and Netgalley!!

Then I also bought this awesome poster from PhantomRin on Red Bubble! It's a picture of our heroes from Kerri Maniscalco's Stalking Jack the Ripper!

And then finally, I received another set of preorder swag! This time it's Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken!! Keeping a list of my preorder incentives now! 2 down, 4 to go! Though technically one hasn't been released yet, so more like 3 to go...with a 4th to come! LOL!

The post cards are super awesome!! Such a lovely little set! 

Thanks again Alex!
