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.

Well this wasn't the best of weeks for me. I learned at the end of it that they are closing our office eventually and moving us downtown. I HATE downtown. Physically-literally HATE that place! I've attempted going there for interviews and it was a nightmare. Streets becoming one way, the place I need to be is nowhere near public parking...it's a nightmare. Plus traffic SUCKS, it SUCKS bad! My stepdad works down there and he's always getting home late because of the horrible traffic. So I'm reallllly hoping I can get a better job before we have to move. I really really really DO NOT want to drive that far everyday and sit in traffic every day. It's not going to be worth what they pay me.

Bookwise, this was a better week! I didn't really add too many new titles to my TBR stacks but I did get the rest of my special books I ordered that cost me insane prices with long distant shipping. So here we go...

I'm going in reverse order this time ;)

For review I received: 

#murderfunding by Gretchen McNeil (ARC)--I wished for it on Netgalley and it came true!! I didn't know they did that!! Because clearly none of my other wishes ever came true! Lol!!

THANK YOU Freeform!

I bought:

Perfunctory Affection by Kim Harrison--SIGNED Subterranean Press edition

I expanded my collection of Stephanie Garber's Caraval series!! Two of these were ones that arrived last week and were my mystery books, I think it was Legend (Turkish Legendary) and the Spanish Caraval that arrived!

From left to right we have the Turkish Caraval and Legendary, then the Serbian Caraval, the Spanish Caraval and the US paperback of Caraval.

If you haven't already figured it out, I consider myself a COLLECTOR of Stephaine Garber's books! LOL.
I also won a gift card to Amazon from Sandy at Somewhere Only We Know for the monthly check in point for the Series Enders Reading Challenge!


Then I also received my March Fairy Loot box, I'll probably be posting a picture of that on Instagram this week since pictures have been going up already lately. I just hadn't gotten around to taking a picture yet.

I do love this purple box though!!

And then because I have no chill or self control when it comes to things Disney I bought this off the Disney website...and good thing too, it sold out after another day or so!

It's Madame Leota from the Haunted Mansion! I have nowhere to put this beauty at the moment, but I couldn't help myself. I have a problem...but luckily it only applies to Disney and books! Lol.

And that my friends is it! While my week wasn't so hot real life wise, it was pretty freaking terrific bookwise!! What did you all get?



  1. Wow you got a lot of great things! I hope you don't have to sit in traffic every day so I'm crossing my fingers you find something better soon!!

  2. I didn't know that was being offered yet! Runs to wish for #murderfunding! :) Fingers crossed as it wasn't a favorite but I am curious to see what they do with it. :)

    Bummer about your job! Hope you can find a new one so you don't have to go downtown it sounds like a nightmare!

    Have a great week and happy reading,

  3. So sorry you might have to sit in traffic - and that there's no parking near where you'll be working if you stay working for the same company. Is there no public transportation? Here, we have buses, trams and trains to get us almost everywhere. Of course, I live too far from the tram line and drive to work to get there faster, but I don't have much traffic in the afternoon, only in the morning.
    I hope you'll enjoy Perfunctory Affection more than I did... It's a strange story!
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  4. Sorry about the job, I will be looking for a new one soon myself. I hope we both find something we love and pays us pretty well. :)
    Love all your new books, I hope you enjoy them!

    I AM SO IN LOVE WITH YOUR MADAME LEOTA! I am going to disney next week and I hope to get a few Haunted Mansion things since The Hatbox ghost is my favorite. :) I feel my bookshelf and house needs to have a more Haunted Mansion feel.

    Have a great week, Jessica!

  5. Boo to moving downtown. I take the train, because I cannot deal with the obnoxious traffic to my job. I hope you are able to find a new position in a better local. Fingers crossed. But, yeah for Amazon gift cards and lots of Caraval books.

  6. I hope MurderFunding is good!

  8. I couldn't get into Murdertrending, but I'm glad for fans that there is a sequel! I hope you'll enjoy it, so awesome that your NetGalley "wish for it" was granted! It never happens to me, lol!
