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 pretty good week! I got nearly all my books from my Abe Books order! Only one more to go! I have a bad book buying problem you guys, but I can't seem to help myself! 

Here's what I bought:

Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder--UK copy
Storm Glass by Maria V. Snyder--UK copy. A little upset that the cover was more damaged than I was led to believe. Would not call this one "Very Good". That's the problem with buying used books online. Sigh..
Sea Glass by Maria V. Snyder--UK copy
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer--UK copy

Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott--keeper copy
Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh--keeper copy
Dreamfall by Amy Plum--keeper copy
Blood Kissed by Keri Arthur
The Beast by Lindsay Mead
The Crown's Fate by Evelyn Skye--keeper copy 

and look! I'm in the acknowledgements!! So cool!! Loved this series!

For review from the author I received:

Forged in Light by Alyssa Rose Ivy (ARC)


Contest win from the 2017 Discussion Post Challenge! I chose an underrated book, which was one that had less than 2000 reviews on Goodreads!

Shutter by Laurie Faria Stolarz--so behind one her books! Need to get caught up!

THANK YOU Shannon & Nicole!

Then in a books for trade I got myself an ARC of Stalking Jack the Ripper! Continuing my obsession of collecting favorite books of ARCs who had a different original cover art! Lol!


And then I got my preorder swag for The Crown's Fate too!

Stickers and a bookmark!!
