Stacking the Shelves

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.

So I really wasn't expecting to get any books this week. Even with the coupon B&N sent me. Sigh...oh wait...I know what I need to order now! Lol!! To be continued!

Anyway, while I did get a few books, I got even more lovely bookish items!! Take a look...

My first purchase and I am ashamed to admit, I paid a small fortune for, but in the end, I am super excited to add this to my collection! I rarely treat myself to such expensive things! Hopefully once I get going on my taxes I will find a nice little refund and this will be just a blip on the credit card bill! LOL!

Caraval by Stephanie Garber--the super super special edition from the UK that has the misprinted cover, which ironically, I think is just GORGEOUS!!! Lol!

I won Jennifer @ Bad Bird Reads' Blogoversary contest and won a book of my choice, so straight to the wishlist I went and decided on Devon Monk's first book in her newest series...

Death and Relaxation by Devon Monk

THANK YOU Jennifer!!!

Then for review from the author I received:

Tempt by Alyssa Rose Ivy--SUPER excited to get back to Hailey's story!! EEK!

THANK YOU Alyssa!!

Then I received my preorder goodies from Mary Lindsey for Haven!

There's what I believe are tea leaves
a wine stopper/corker--I don't drink so I don't know the official name! Lol! At least that's what I think this is? Or is it a tea leave presser thing? My mom thought it looked like a wine stopper!
signed postcard & bookmark
a makeup bag
a gorgeous necklace with a crescent moon! Looks like it's made from Tiger's Eye!
Then I got my preorder swag for The Cruel Prince! I was ecstatic that it got here so fast!!
I got a signed bookplate
a sticker
a bookmark with an awesome pin!

THANK YOU Little Brown Books!

Then I ordered a few more book sleeves...because uh...you can never have too many! My sister used to "collect" purses, I collect book sleeves...and the books to put them all in! LOL! But yeah, my books still far outnumber my book sleeves!

The gorgeous one on the left came from Story Time Sleeve! I love this galaxy look! It's sooo cool!
I realized I had no "official" Harry Potter sleeves! I did pick up the one with deer on them and it was purple that gave off Harry Potter vibes, but I think the Marauder's Map is a nice official Harry Potter one! This I bought from Fandom Sleeves!

Then I had signed up to receive a Christmas card from Lisa Maxwell and it finally came this week! It's so pretty! I was a little sad that during transit it got that weird smear on the bottom, but it's still pretty! I'll just hold it at that corner to hide it! :)


And that my friends is what I got this week!! What did you all get?


  1. Nice haul, Jessica! I can't even see what the misprint is on the Caraval cover...
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  3. I love the Marauder's Map sleeve!!

  4. You got a great haul!! :)


  5. Enjoy your copy of Caraval. Sometimes it's great to treat yourself.

  6. Nice haul! I'm so glad you'r Caraval collection keeps growing. You definitely have to update us on how it looks now.
    Have a lovely week,

  7. I should be getting a nice tax refund this year too because of the tax reform and woohoo you better believe I am totally spending at least some of it on new books! Enjoy your GORGEOUS new copy of Caraval! :D

  8. That is a gorgeous book sleeve! I have three but rarely use them. I was mainly putting my bullet journal in it so it wouldn't get dirty. That is one gorgeous copy of Caraval!

    Tina @ As Told By Tina

  9. I love how you keep finding new versions of Caraval to buy. You have quite the collection now! Enjoy all your new goodies!

  10. I find it fascinating how people collect misprints and such---my son was mentioning that when it came to Wii characters. If the packaging is messed up, the collector's price goes way up!

  11. Ooooh that Caraval! I kind of want to know how much it cost, but I'm scared to ask! XD It's gorgeous though! I love that Cruel Prince swag, although I still haven't read it.

  12. Nice haul, and gorgeous swag and booksleeves! Those are stunning.

    Have a lovely week, Jessica :)

  13. How many copies of Caraval do you end now? And more important question: how many copies of Legendary will you get?

  14. How did you come across the misprint? I ask because I have the same misprint edition and was thinking of selling...
