Stacking the Shelves 13

meme hosted by Tynga

This week’s StS I have dubbed the “HOLY GIFTY AWESOMENESS” edition. So much bookish love from so many bookish friends.

After I posted last week’s Stacking the Shelves, a whole group of us headed out to Joanne Levy’s book launch party for Small Medium at Large. Be sure to check out my recap & swag giveaway (ending tomorrow)! Also from this past week, I had my first post for my new blog feature Swoon-Worthy Sundays, so be sure to check it out and see who/what I featured as the first SwS! (and you’ll WANT to come by tomorrow to see who’s featured next 😉 )

I’ll be heading to the cottage this weekend so I’ll definitely swing by everyone’s Stacking the Shelves posts when I get back!

For Review



Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff <– eARC for read & review from publisher.

Two and Twenty Dark Tales by Various authors <– eARC for read & review from publisher. 20 authors doing retellings of classic nursery rhymes with a dark undertone?? Sign me up!

  1. RAWR! Such super awesomeness!
    *wants to borrow Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr* *insert puppy eyes*
    Hope you’re having a fab weekend at the cottage and hope you enjoy all the pretties <3

  2. Wow! That is quite the collection. You were able to accumulate that many books in just a week? How are you able to blaze through them all?! I’m excited about The Raven Boys too. I have heard excellent things about it!

    Can’t wait for the new Sunday post! Have a super time at the cottage! :)


  3. Oh my gosh you have a FANTASTIC haul! I am so jealous of Ten, Venom, Scarlet, and Stormdancer! I also love all your swag! The only book I read in that haul was Flirting in Italian and I actually really like it and LOVED the cover! :) Enjoy your AMAZING books!

  4. That is a lot of great books!! I Have The Infects, Stormdancer, and Two and Twenty Dark Tales. Looking forward to reading those. Surrender was really good!! SQUEE!! Ten, and Carnival of Souls!! Awesome haul this week!!

  5. So much awesomeness!!!! Jealous of TEN and SCARLET — two that are on my wishlist! And the Dexter series? I love the TV show but have yet to pick up the books — they do look pretty good, though. I’ve heard so many good things about Maggie Stiefvater …. I really need to read THE RAVEN BOYS — or anything else she’s put out!

    Love all the swag! I need to get more swag in my life. :)

    Enjoy the reading!
