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.

This was a rather quiet week I feel like. It's eerie and odd. Lol! Though the week didn't start off too good when my Abe Books order came in and the book that I was expecting to be "LIKE NEW" "NEVER BEEN READ" came in clearly "read" condition with cover creases and wear and tear and bent page corners. So wasn't happy, but I guess I should've figured a "LIKE NEW" book would never be sold for so cheap. Plus there was ZERO mentioning of an "irremovable" cover sticker. I LOATHE those! I swear publishers made those just to annoy the heck out of readers! Those stickers ARE THE DEVIL!!


*substitute Ben Franklin for irremovable cover stickers ;) 

But anyways, here's what I bought this week:

Divergent by Veronica Roth--the UK edition to complete my collection and the one that came in clearly been read and beaten condition, but "LIKE NEW"!
Tiger's Dream by Colleen Houck--holy mammoth this baby is huge! I bought the real book edition and this baby is 800+ pages! Harry Potter length people!! Almost considering buying the ebook now just so I don't put any wear and tear into the spine! I intend to meet Colleen at the Origin Event in November and want to have the fully Tiger Saga signed and that includes this beauty!
Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas--okay, I told myself I would not buy this until I read her first duology but Amazon had it on sale and it was the last copy in stock and I just auto clicked it before I could really think about what I was doing! Lol!

Then for review from the author I received:
Warlock's Embrace by Alyssa Rose Ivy (ARC)

THANK YOU Alyssa!!
And that's it my friends! I didn't do too bad all things considered! What did you all get?


  1. I love the covers of the new books you got, and this is also the first time I've seen that version of Divergent. They look so pretty together!

  2. Oh I haven't read any but heard about 2 of them. Happy reading!

  3. Very nice haul of books. I've had good luck when purchasing like new. I don't do it accept when it's the only way I can the the print copy though.

  4. I want to read long may she reign. Sorry to hear about your like new book. That sucks and cover stickers suck too. I hate those. Lemon essential oil is good at removing sticky stuff.

  5. I hate, hate hate hate, HATE when books have stickers on them. Even the ones from B&N that come off pretty easily... don't do that, bookstores! It's so annoying. But I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a wonderful week, Jessica. =)

  7. Stickers are the devil! People who put stickers on books should be burned! (Totally kidding, but kind of not... lol)

  8. Lots of great books you got here! I hope you enjoy them all! Thanks for checking out my STS post!

  9. I had no idea that Colleen Houck released a new book in that series! I don't know if I'll read it just because I got so frustrated with the last book. But who knows??

    I hope you love Long May She Reign! I've been wanting to read that for a while now. :)
