Stacking the Shelves--The Christmas Edition!

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! The meme is now hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality.

This was a pretty good week! Pretty much everything in my haul this week were Christmas gifts! Not too many books were obtained, although I did get one of my contest wins! So yay!

Here's my bookish Christmas gifts, minus some gift cards to B&N or Amazon:

The Princess Bride by William Goldman (Deluxe Edition)

 The Night Court Medallion from Hebel Design

 Dead Last Rest Stop T-shirt from The Coldest Girl in Coldtown from a Holly Black shop website

a bookish blanket!
Then before Christmas I placed an order at Hot Topic and it came in...though some of it was damaged. While I was able to replace the Funko in store, the necklace I ordered that was shattered had to be re-ordered since it was online only. I can only hope they will pack it better since it will be by itself!

 So I saw that Hot Topic had an exclusive of the Enchanted Rose Funko Pop and despite making my own in a DIY project, I HAD to have the Funko version! It's a sickness I know! But I had a Birthday coupon PLUS I found another coupon online for Hot Topic and got a pretty good deal on my stuff! The actual box is a little harder to see since the lighting wasn't cooperative, but it was a gorgeous blue! Hence the picture of it too!

Then when I was browsing the Supernatural section of the website I saw Supernatural John Winchester's Journal! It's in this amazing format where it's his actual binder/journal from the show! Ironically I had just watched the Mystery Spot episode the same day when I was picking this order up so it was fun seeing those little extra slips! The brown pieces of paper are newspaper clippings of certain "events" that have led the brothers on some of their trips, including the one about Mary's death and the Supernatural musical announcement!!

Then for review from the publisher I received: 

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert--Audio book
a poster and Sharpie for coloring purposes, sadly the poster was seriously bent out of shape, but it was still a lovely surprise!

And then finally, awhile back I won a contest from Gretchen McNeil, but due to some snafus I never received the prize but was given an IOU basically, so I decided to cash in on it this year when I knew Gretchen had a new thriller coming out! 

#murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil (ARC)--and it was SIGNED!!
THANK YOU Gretchen!


  1. You had quite the bookish Christmas! And #murderistrending too?? That's awesome!

    I'm a big audiobook lover so I hope the Hazel Wood is good! Did you ask them for an audio copy? I only ask because I saw another blogger got an audio copy (of a different book) me was wondering when they started doing audio copies.

  2. Wow. That's a beautiful edition of The Princess Bride.

  3. I'm so happy you had such a nice bookish Christmas! I love the funko so much.
    I hope you enjoy The Hazel Wood Audiobook.
    Happy New Year,

  5. That Princess Bride edition is gorgeous! I still need to read the book, but the movie is my favorite!

  6. I've never read The Princess Bride, though I am a fan of the wonderful film. I need to get hold of the book during 20128:). That poster of The Hazel Wood is gorgeous. Wishing you a happy, successful 2018.

  7. I'm kind of in love with the title #murdertrending. :-) Glad you got such wonderful things for Christmas!
