December 29, 2013 • Cee • Stacking the Shelves

stsfestivo

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where you share books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. 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!

I actually have not done one of these book hauls in two months! I didn’t get a lot of books November because I put myself on my first book ban after the events in October. However, now I’m back with books! I have acquired a couple from friends and through giveaways, and some I bought. I’m pretty sure this isn’t all of it. (My memory is horrible.) I received a card from Nikki of The Paper Sea (and am anticipating more in the mail) and I am giddy about it! It was sooo sweet. Loved it. But let’s get to the books, shall we?

GIFTED

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner (from the awesome Kelly of Effortlessly Reading who got it early!)
The Darkest Mind by Alexandra Bracken [SIGNED!] (from the always lovely Stacie of The Shy Book Nerd!)
Vicious trading cards from Victoria Schwab because she is super awesome and was kind enough to send me these!

  1. I’m reading Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore right now, it’s pretty intense but in a good way!

    So many amazing books. I loved AngelFall, and I got World After for Christmas. Gosh The Fiery Heart, the feels i get from that book. Hope you enjoy the books.

    I promise I put your card in the mail! Hopefully it gets to you soon.

    That I Love Lucy card is so cute! I really want to read These Broken Stars. I hope you like The Darkest Minds. I liked it, but I have forgotten a lot of the story.

    I really liked Angelfall, and though World After was alright. Hopefully, things will pick back up in the third installment. I personally didn’t like The Fiery Heart that much, but things looked promising at the end. I checked Steelheart out from the library, so I know I will be finishing it in the next few days.

    Can’t wait to hear what you think about Mr. Penumbra’s and Ready Player One.

    I hope you enjoy all of your books this week!

I got it for Christmas so soon hopefully. Enjoy!!!
