Stacking The Shelves #16- Signed Books and Book Bans

July 12, 2014 Features, Stacking the Shelves 17

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).

Hello, again! It’s felt like a long time since we’ve done one of these posts. Let’s begin, shall we?

Marianne’s Haul:

I am tecnically on a book ban (because I personally haven’t bought a physical book), but that didn’t stop me from acquiring lots of books over the weeks.

Purchased/Free For Kindle/Gifts:

Something Like Normal by Trish Doller – It was an Amazon monthly deal!
Coming Home by Priscilla Glenn – I really like the plot and it was a daily deal, so I couldn’t pass it up 🙂
The Boys of Summer by C.J. Duggan: It’s currently FREE on Amazon Kindle.
Rush by Eve Silver– I’ve been wanting to read this one for a long time, so when I realised it was a daily deal, I one-cliked it!
In the After by Demetria Lunetta– I got the second one of this series from Edelweiss, so decided to buy it so I could read the whole series.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han I am a compulsive buyer! The ebook was on sale on Amazon, so I one clicked it. Then the audiobook was on sale, too, so I bought it! I have no self control.
Stone of Destiny by Laura Howard – It was 99 cents on Amazon. I couldn’t resist!
Lost &  Found by Nicole Williams– FREE
Clicks by Amy Evans – FREE
Midnight Never Ends by Thomas Amo– It was 99 cents and I wanted to support the author, so I picked it up. Can’t wait to read it.

Taking Back Forever by Karen Amanda Hooper – It is SIGNED by Karen herself. I squealed when I finally got it!
Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover – My mom bought me this one!
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick – Gift from mom as well.
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan – Jennifer was awesome and gave me this as an extremely late birthday present.
Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano– Jennifer didn’t like this one, so gave it to me instead.

These books were gifts, too! 🙂 My family has finally come to terms with the fact that I love books.
Percy Jackson Boxed Set (New Redesigned Covers) by Rick Riordan
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins– THE COVER!

We're two Puertorican girls who want to share our love of reading with the world. We sometimes substitute words for GIFS and either rant or fangirl a lot in our reviews. Talk to us about anything! 🙂
  • Holy moly!!! I loved Coming Home. She’s a good contemporary romance author. And I’ve been meaning to read my Life Next Door — I got that book on sale!! *wink*

    I haven’t done a Stacking the Shelves in a while too! *runs to get her act together*

    • We usually do a STS that tackles a few weeks together. XD Great to know Coming Home is good. Can’t wait to read it ♥

  • Ohhh, someone had a good week! I love signed books 😀 And you know I liked Maybe Someday. Your mom did well 😉 I also want to read Dash & Lily’s. Both of you got Perkins’ book!

    • My mom is sometimes very thoughtful and buys me books from my wishlist, lol. We both good that book so we could buddy read it together 🙂

  • Aaah you both got My Life Next Door it’s one of my favorite contemporaries! Even better than Fitzpatrick’s newer book

    • We both read it and we both thought it was amazing! I really want to read her newest book, but everyone keeps saying how it isn’t as satisfying as My Life Next Door.

  • Woooow you girls both got some amazing reads this week! Damn I wish I knew about some of those one clicks cos I would have did the same lol! Or maybe it’s better that I didn’t…

    I can see lots of people with It’s Kind of a Funny Story lately, I’ve just gotten it recently too because I’m interested in the psychological side of things.

    Maybe Someday was a really fantastic read and how lovely of your mum Marianne to pick up some reads for you! Have a lovely week you two!

  • I really loved the first half of In the After, but didn’t really like the second half all that much. 🙁 I have Anna and the French Kiss and though I caved and bought it in January, I still haven’t read it. Happy reading!

  • Nice haul of books. I see that you guys a lot of books. Right now I’m on a NG/EW ban. This way I can try to play catch up with some of my review books.

    Books of Love

  • What a haul! We didn’t have a load that big even the week we went to RT!

  • Definitely some good looking books in those stacks. I only recognize a few but hope y’all enjoy the lot of them!

  • Hooray for moms and families who give books! 😀

    Marianne: So many awesome deals! I’m curious about Rush and Something Like Normal. I hope you enjoy To All the Boys! I need the PJO boxset! <33 And enjoy Anna! 😀

    Jennifer: Lola was ADORABLE! And Cinder–such a unique story. Lilah definitely looks intriguing. I hope I get approved for that one. *fingers crossed*
