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 was another uneventful week. Nothing new on the job front. I'm still trying though! Fingers crossed that one of the new ones I applied for this week will pan out into something positive!

As far as book hauling, I did AMAZING!! The best thing was after a long grueling work week I came home Friday to an ARC box!!!!

I bought:

Finale by Stephanie Garber--the UK paperback! Oddly, it's smaller than its predecessors, but oh well! Lol.
Cress by Marissa Meyer--the new paperback! And my blog name still appears in the back! I was so delighted that I could still find it! 

From the publisher:

Crave ARC Box!
Crave by Tracy Wolff
Notepad & bookmark

THANK YOU AGAIN Entangled Teen!!!

Then I signed up to be on Julie Kagawa's Street Team and was sent this:
Shadow of the Fox bookmark

THANK YOU Inkyard Press!

All the Stars and Teeth preorder gift:

SIGNED bookplate
enamel pin

THANK YOU Imprint!

Then I was scrolling through Etsy looking for Caraval related items as I am wont to do on occasion and came across this gorgeous necklace from Thread Bound Studio that I immediately bought!

It's the symbol of Caraval with the teardrop inside a star inside the sun

And finally I received my Owl Crate! I knew what the book was going in and thankfully wasn't spoiled for anything else! Though I'm struggling to figure out what the fandom is for two of the items as there wasn't a "spoiler" card inside my box, so I'm kinda scratching my head over these last two things! Lol.

And that was it for me! Not too bad all things considered! Really happy with what I got this week! Now if only I could find a job. What all did you get this week?



  1. Pretty box for Crave! Entangled Teen always sends the most awesome, well designed swag!

  2. What a great haul this week, Jessica! Publishers actually send out boxes like that for ARCs? That just amazes me to no end.
    And congrats on becoming a member of Julie Kagawa's street team! I would love to be on hers, too - love all her books.
    Good luck with the job search. You really deserve to find something closer to your house, you've been searching so hard since last fall.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  4. I received the Crave box as well. Excited to read it. Enjoy all your new reads.

  5. I am loving the ARC box you received. That's awesome! Also, how cool that you are named in the back of Cress! I hope to see you this week!

  6. That Caraval necklace is so pretty! I really like those new Lunar Chronicles covers. I feel like they fit the sci-fi theme well!
    Enjoy your new books! Happy reading! :)

  7. Good luck with the job search! Hope this week is a great one for you. :)

    Love that bookmark! And the Garber series looks fun.

  8. My fingers are staying crossed for you! Crave looks so interesting. I've seen a couple people getting it recently and I'm intrigued. Have a great week!

  9. Love your new Caravel items!!! Still hoping for good things from your job search!
