Stacking the Shelves--Caraval & Disney!

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 yet another meh week. Nothing positive on the job search, though I keep at it everyday. Ready to pull my hair out though with the lack of responses from these companies though.

This was also kind of a meh week for books. I almost went a whole week without adding anything to my post but the saving grace came in yesterday! As it is I have to try another B&N to look for the book I wanted to buy with my coupon. Sigh...a booklover's work is never done!

So the book I bought I ordered almost a month ago and it finally arrived!! I was super happy and my stepdad must have been home thankfully because I wasn't sure if it had to be signed for or not and then I'd have to wait until TUESDAY for it!

Caraval by Stephanie Garber--the HEBREW edition!!!

I FINALLY FOUND IT! Due to boredom times at work I was able to find a book site that could get it AND ship it to the US! Now I'm just waiting on one more complex order for another one and then I can leave my vigil at the mailbox! Lol!

And then I ordered the Blissfully Bookish stamp pin that was the pin of the month recently and naturally it was CARAVAL related!!!

I should have just enough room on my pin hoop for this one! After that...I better not find anymore Caraval pins! Lol.

And then last week I had plans for waking up super early to sit in a mall to wait for the Disney Store to open so I could buy something and get one of the beloved keys they give out every so often! Instead, around 2:30am I woke up (3 hours earlier than I intended) because one of the dogs barked and I reached for my phone and basically sleepy-eyed placed an order that I had set aside as a "just in case" situation. Needless to say, I successfully placed my order and was able to get a key in my basket too! So I skipped the trip to the mall since I didn't need a second key.

So I ended up ordering a set of salt & pepper shakers for myself and what better set to go with then The Haunted Mansion tombstone set? Madame Leota is the salt and Master Gracey is the pepper! They have their rhyming epitaphs on them and I thought it was just perfect! 
And then of course was the key for this time around and it was Minnie Mouse style! I figured the $6 shipping was worth the stress of going to a so-so area in terms of safety when it's still dark out. I have done it before, so it's not the biggest deal, but it was also really cold last weekend, so yeah, didn't want to go outside in that either! Lol.

And that was it for me this week! So nothing really added to the TBR pile in a sense, which is great since that pile has yet to get any smaller! :D

What did you all get this week?



  1. Wow! Hebrew is quite an addition to your collection. Those salt & pepper shakers are fun. I know nothing about the keys, but they are cute too

  2. That's cool you found a site with Hebrew copies! Hope you other one comes in just find as well. Cool Disney things too! :)

    Week in Review

  3. Oh, wow, the Hebrew edition seems cool! Do you have ALL of the editions at this point?

  5. I love that Hebrew edition of Caraval! And good luck with the job search- that's not always fun lol.

  6. Nice find of the Hebrew edition! Curious, how many editions of Caraval are you up to now? Must be an epic collection!
