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.

Another quiet week for the most part. Acquired a few new reads, mostly from the books-for-trade hashtag and one new release! Next week promises to be a BIG release day! I can't wait to go to the bookstore for all of it!! :D

Here's what I got this week:

The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson--I really, really try not to buy the sequels to books I haven't read the first one too, but with Maureen Johnson I feel like I made a safe bet! Lol.

Books I received from books-for-trade:

The Cerulean by Amy Ewing (ARC)

THANK YOU Bri & Kristalynn!!

Then I found out I was the winner in the 2018 Series Enders Reading Challenge and won myself a gift card to Amazon!!

THANK YOU Sandy & Holly!

Then I received my preorder swag from Crystal Cestari and The Fairest Kind of Love!

I received a SIGNED bookplate, a bookmark, a postcard and STICKERS!!

THANK YOU Crystal!!

And then because I am HUGE Disney geek, I found myself buying these...in my defense they're purple AND it was a free ship day! :D

I'm tentative planning to take my first ever trip to DisneyLAND maybe in 2020 (fall) or early 2021. I initially was shooting for February 2020 but Sleeping Beauty's castle will still be under construction and if I am going all the way out there I am seeing that castle in all its glory! So I'm debating between September 2020 or February 2021--February was apparently a low volume crowd kind of season, but then I worry about the air travel and the possibility of snow in areas like Missouri and Colorado! So I'm still in my debating/planning stages of things!

And that's it for me this week! What did you all get?


  1. I need to read the first book in that Maurene Johnson series. I've heard good things. I like how the covers match for this second book too.
    Feb 5th is definitely going to be a giant release day too. But eep can't wait for King Scars next week!

  2. Disney should give you a free trip. :-)

  3. Amazon gift cards are the best! Congratulations! I have a hold on the audiobook of The Vanishing Stair. I can't wait to continue the story.

  4. Congrats on the win! Planning a trip to Disney is always exciting. I have been quite a few times but only Florida never California. I am sure you will have a blast!

  5. The cover of The Cerulean is so pretty! I had debated requesting it but with all the other books I have on my plate I just knew I had to pass, so I hope to get your thoughts on it!

  7. Congrats on your win!!! And those mouse ears are plain adorable. :-)
