Stacking the Shelves 14

meme hosted by Tynga

It’s a bit later in the morning that I’m posting this because I wanted to unveil my GORGEOUS NEW HEADER that Evie (Bookish) designed for me!!! Figured it’s about time to spruce up this page a bit and I definitely needed a banner.. what do you think?? She did such a great job capturing my “Lost” theme and to match the colours of my current blog layout! A few other buttons and graphics will be switched over too but I couldn’t wait to share this beautiful header! <3

Well, after a few weeks of crazy book hauls, I’ve had a relatively quieter one this week. Managed to finish quite a few books last weekend at the cottage but alas they aren’t coming out for a while so the reviews won’t be up till closer to that time. I have made a vow to myself though that I NEED to get reading through a good chunk of my review books before I buy/start any more new ones! (Yeah, we’ll see how long that lasts!)

One thing coming up that I’m excited for is the wrap-up to the first month of mine & Lost in a Great Book‘s summer TBR pile readalong! So look out for my review of Daughter of Smoke & Bone on Monday, and our collective wrap-up post (with link-up) on Tuesday!

Also – anyone watching the Olympics?? Β What’s your favourite event to watch? There’s also a lot of bookish Canadian pride going on for the summer games!

Other things you may have missed this past week: a new Just a Lil Lost webcomic and Wendy’s guest post for Swoon-Worthy Sundays with the delicious Magnus Bane!

For Review

Y by Marjorie Celona <– ARC for read & review from publisher as part of blog tour.


The Diary of Darcy J. Rhone by Emily Giffin <– “Purchased” as a free book on Kobo! I didn’t even realize this existed, but I enjoy her books.. so interested to check this one out!



Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn <– eBook RAK gift from Helen @ HD’s Reading Corner! Thank you!

Ghost Stories of the Rocky Mountains by Barbara Smith <– Gift from Jen (@mountie9) after we both realized we collect ghost story books from places we visit, and that the one I bought while in Banff were FICTIONAL stories. She got me one of REAL ones. :) Thank you Jen!!!


Β What did you get this week? Leave your link and I’ll be sure to check it out too! :)

Thanks for stopping by! 😎


  1. I love the header Evie made you! So awesome. It matches your blog perfectly.

    I have been wanting to read Gone Girl for awhile now and I can’t wait to see what you think of it.

    Happy weekend!

  2. Love the new header – that Evie is a talented girl :-)
    You have some great new books – I’ll be interested to hear what you think of Y and Gone Girl. Future book club picks, perhaps?

  3. Love the new header!!! It totally goes with your theme … I especially like the plane carrying the banner. It’s PERFECT!

    I also got The Diary of Darcy J. Rhone a while back … I intend to reread that series, though, before I read it! And I also collect ghost stories!! I looooove reading a good ghost story book. When my hubby and I were in Victoria, I picked up a few, AND we went on a ghost walk which was AWESOME.

  10. You know, I’ve never read an Emily Giffin book. I don’t even know what her books are like, but I think the covers always put me off – yet I judged negatively based on the pastel covers! Didn’t look like books I wanted to read or would relate to, before I had a baby, and I still think that way, but I’ve never looked up people’s reviews. So I have to ask: what’s she like and do you think I’d enjoy her books?

    I posted about my new books too. :)

    • I’ve read the first 3 or so.. I really liked the first one.. Something Borrowed… they’re “chicklit”y but the story of Something Borrowed is quite good. Something Blue (#2) ‘s main character is a character from the 1st one.. It’s worth a shot with the first book at least! :)

  11. Emily Giffin has an ebook? O_o ooh I must check it out too! I really enjoy her books too. Thanks Michele! I’m going to get it from Kobo now.

    Evie did a beautiful job! It’s adorable! Suits your blog and theme so well!

    Enjoy all your books!
