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, as you can see my mini vacation--that I may or may not have mentioned, I can't remember if I did or not, lol--didn't happen. There's a bit of a family situation going on with my stepdad's side and he's with them a few hours away and my mom didn't want to go further out of town in case things happen. So we stayed in town sadly. We're hoping to reschedule the trip, but I'm not sure how things will go. But I've my YALLFest trip happening next weekend, so that will help get me through my short work week! Better yet, I'll have another signing on Monday when I return! Nothing positive on the job search, but I'm still keeping at it!

Since I didn't get to go out of town this weekend, I found myself on an in-town shopping spree! Finding deals, buying things like clothes on sale and other things I will eventually need, Christmas and Birthday presents for relatives...I'm making good progress! But of course, that's another dent into the bills and I haven't even gone out of town yet! LOL!

Anyways, here's what I added to my stacks this week:

Soul of Stars by Ashley Poston--I jumped the gun and just bought it even though I just started the first one! Lol.
Coached to Death by Victoria Laurie

Caraval Boxed Set by Stephanie Garber--of course I HAD to buy this one! I mean I'm a Caraval Collector after all! Lol!! It didn't hurt that I had a won a GC AND Amazon lowered the price AND they added an extra savings coupon! It was a steal!!

For review I received:

Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles (ARC)

THANK YOU Wednesday Books!

Then I FINALLY got my Fairy Loot box! I was getting worried about this one when for four or five days it just sat there with a label created!

I was pretty pleased with this box overall! Glad the book was more in line with the UK cover and had enhancements added to it! :D
Then I won the September Giveaway in the 2019 Series Enders Reading Challenge! I got an Amazon gift card which I immediately applied to my purchase of the Caraval Book Set!!

THANK YOU Holly @ Words Fueled by Love!
Then awhile back I had ordered myself a book sleeve--which, it's been awhile since I last bought one. Well, sorta--August, I checked! ;) Before that it was even longer! But look at what I bought:
THE HAUNTED MANSION: Madame Leota Book Sleeve! THE HAUNTED MANSION!! My most favorite ride at Disney World! And Madam Leota is just wicked cool! So I had to buy this one and I was able to get that extra large size I struggle to find these days, so it was an added plus!
This beauty came from Enchanted Extras By Bri
That was it for me this week! Next week's StS will be postponed since I will be out of town for YALLFest! I'll a do a two week haul the following week. Hope you all have a GREAT week ahead!

  3. I think it's nice that you still did stuff with your mom, and that you were able to get some shopping done even if you didn't leave town. And YAY for YAllfest next weekend. I'm sure that's going to be a lot of fun.
    I keep sending you good vibes for the job search - I really hope you'll find the perfect job for you soon!
