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 week wasn't that much better than last week. I did have a book signing to attend which was fun, but right before that I had someone rear-end my car in a parking lot. I was sitting in my car, reading a chapter before I headed into Subway and the guy across the lot was backing up and just kept going. Everyone was fine, but I was just so aggravated that this happened to me and I felt like it was just one giant headache that I didn't need. Luckily, my car had no damage and his was fine from what I could see too. He was backing up slowly, so it was more that he tapped my bumper, so thankfully I won't need repairs. But yeah...could've lived without that headache and stress this week.

But it wasn't all bad! I did get some great new reads that I am really excited about!

Here's what I bought:

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi--I decided to go ahead and buy the hardcover of the first book to match my series.'s silly, but I can't help myself sometimes!
Shadow Me by Tahereh Mafi--since I finally spent the rest of my Amazon gift card I decided to buy this one right away! As I mentioned before I am weird and refuse to use my gift cards on digital items! Lol.

Then to my excitement I received this for review:

Finale by Stephanie Garber (ARC)

THANK YOU Flatiron Books!

Then I received some preorder gifts this week:

Bloodleaf: I got the beautiful full colored map & a gorgeous journal that was far bigger than I anticipated! Which was a happy surprise, I thought it would be like half the dimensions!

Bloodwitch: Enamel Pins set!!

Then my mom was buying shirts for herself online and picked this one up for me and I LOOOOVE IT!

It says: Get Lost Get Found and naturally there's a book beneath it! It's a long sleeve shirt from Life is Good and it's SUUUUUPER comfortable! Omg, I LOVE IT!

And that was it for me this week! Not too much added to the TBR pile, so that was good! What did you all get?


  1. Such a great haul! I love the BLOODLEAF map and was super stoked to have gotten it in a sub box! I hope you enjoy all your new books and reads!

  2. Amazon gift cards are the best!!! I always buy hard copies of my favorite books for my bookshelf, but usually prefer to actually read the digital copy. I’ve been wanting to read the Shatter Me series! I’ve heard so many great things about it, and I kid you not I was looking at it on my kindle yesterday! Enjoy!!!

  3. Oh my goodness! I'm glad you and your car were okay! That's so frustrating. And I'm so jealous that they replied to your Finale request! I am STILL waiting!

  4. YAY so happy you got Finale, I know you love that series! Happy reading!

  5. Sorry to hear you got rear-ended. Glad there was no damage, but the guy should have stopped. Hope you enjoy all your new books.

  6. Some nice things for you! Have a great week and happy reading!

  7. I am glad that you and your car are both okay. Unfortunately, those kind of things always happen when you least feel like dealing with them. Enjoy your new books! I know you have to be really excited about Finale! Have a great week!

  8. Sorry about the accident but at least it was all good. Sounds like you enjoyed the book signing and your books look great.

  9. Yaay I'm so happy you got Finale!!

  10. Parking lots are terrible, I had that happen to me recently too and it was from someone backing out of their space without looking and just kept going until it hit my car. Except I did have damage, but at least their insurance would pay for it. A headache indeed.
