Stacking The Shelves #14 Our Biggest Haul Yet!

May 17, 2014 Features, Stacking the Shelves 26

Stacking The Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and it’s 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! It gives us bloggers a chance to share what we books we’ve acquired over the last week(s).

We haven’t done an STS in such a long time, because we’ve been waiting until we actually have pictures to show. Well, now we have too many!

Marianne’s Haul:

If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Twitter, you’ll KNOW that I’ve been acquiring lots of books lately. You have no idea what a Credit Card and Amazon Daily Deals do to me!

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell- Got this one on Netgalley, but it was on sale on Amazon, so I decided to buy it! I do not regret it!
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell- I had initially borrowed the audio, but this is one of my all-time favourites, so it HAD to be on my bookshelf!
Splintered by A.G. Howard- Same as Eleanor & Park. I still stare at the cover endlessly 🙂
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Megan Spooner- I almost cried when I got this one. It’s my baby <3

Jennifer’s Haul:


Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano – You wouldn’t believe the great restrain I had when I finished this one. I wanted to burn it but instead I’m trying to sell it. No such luck. At least it only cost me $12.
Dream Dark by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl – Bought with some gift credits from Audible, this was amazing! It got me hooked into borrowing the audiobook for Beautiful Chaos.
Of Triton by Anna Banks – Another audiobook I got from Audible, but this one for testing the program. I love the narrator and can’t wait to start it! And I’d love to have the hardcover too <3


My wonderful co-blogger Marianne gifted me with Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry! It’s currently on sale on Amazon for $0.31! Go get your copy! 🙂

For Review:

Magnolia by Kristi Cook – HA I finally got approved for this baby. If I like it, I’m so buying it!
Camp Payback by J.K. Rock – Thank you Marianne for making me curious. I’ll be starting the series this Summer.
On The Fence by Kasie West – Drew me in with the description and can’t wait to start it!
Fan Art by Sarah Tregay – Art, Literature, and Romance are my top weaknesses. There was no escaping this one.

What happened this week:

Jennifer reviewed A Little Bit Cupid by Jennifer Shirk, which left a smile on her face.She also reviewed Debbie Doesn’t Do It Anymore by Walter Moseleywhich was a dark read, with surprising storyline. 

Meanwhile, Marianne tried not to rant (but failed) at You Had Me at Hello by Mhairi McFarlane. She also reviewed the Camp Boyfriend series, which was a fun, summer readMarianne posted about why she loves audiobooks; audiobooks are amazing.(Jennifer bombing here has to agree. She’s becoming as addicted as Marianne now…)

This week’s Fashion by the Book featured The ProgramDash & Lily’s Book of Dares! And finally, books were compared to chocolate in The Chocolate Book Tag!

    WOW!

  • That’s one huge haul! I love the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, and the Mara Dyer series is just amazing. I hope you enjoy your books. 🙂

  • WOW you guys got some really awesome books, a great big haul! I think everyone’s gone a bit crazy lately with books hehe. I just adore Attachments,it gave me the feels. I have heard so many awesome things about Ruby Red! Enjoy your books lovely!

  • Cait

    LOOK AT THOSE GORGEOUS BOOKS. *strokes the computer screen* I love love love Splintered and These Broken Stars. 😉 And Eleanor & Park and Crown of Midnight. SO MUCH LOVE. I LITERALLY CAN’T EVEN. x) I totally need to get onto Of Neptune…*sigh* I feel so behind on so many trilogies at the moment, but I loved Of Poseidon soooo I need to get onto book #2. x) Great haul! You two did fabulously well.

  • Ahhhh, so many good ones. LOVED Splintered and These Broken Stars and I keep forgetting to pick up a copy of Nearly Gone (and considering I featured It in one of my Waiting on Wednesdays, I really should have it now) haha. Happy reading both! 🙂

    Here’s mine

    Kirsty @ StudioReads

  • MASSIVE haul. Don’t you just love a week where your positive is run off his feet with book deliveries. I have yo say, These Broken Stars. It’s my baby too. I loved that book more than chocolate. And Splintered, ohhh Morpheus. BIG fan of The MOTH.

    Awesome bargains, wish we had equally as incredible book sales in Australia. Enjoy your reads ladies.

    • YES! TEAM MOTH. I love when I get home and there are little boxes of books waiting for you. It’s the best feeling 🙂 Thanks!

  • All of these books are driving me insane! I feel like I haven’t purchased a book in forever. I absolutely loved the haul, though 😀 For Rainbow Rowell, I’ve only read Fangirl, but I’m so excited to read more of her books. I’m quite anxious to read the Mara Dyer series and Ruby Red. I own the first books in both series, so I hope they’re good!

    I really enjoyed Of Triton, and I think the covers for this series are incredible. I’ve been wanting to read Pushing the Limits for a while now… perhaps I’ll get it now!

  • Oooh! SO MANY GREAT BOOKS! I can’t wait to see what you think of the Mara Dyer series in particular! 🙂
