Stacking the Shelves August 9th, 2014





Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected. I'm going to be out of town tomorrow, going to my great-aunt's 90th birthday party in Brazilton, Kansas.  So, I wanted to just do this today so I would I have time to go check out other Stacking the Shelves posts after I'm done with mine.  Also, I'm going to include some links at the bottom of this post to my 5th Blogoversary giveaway, which I posted earlier today, as well as links to my September is for Sequels Challenge.  Here are the things I added this week.


Books purchased:
When I was doing some cleaning after being done with my recovery from surgery, I found a gift card that I had meant to give away, but had ended up just doing an email gift card instead when I had that giveaway.  So I figured I'd go spend it myself.  And I got this 4th book in the Beautiful Creatures series, and hope to get it read as part of my September is for Sequels Challenge.

Nook Books purchased for under $1.99:

These are parts of series, novellas, that I will probably read during my November is for Novellas Challenge this year.

YA Book Exchange:

I was very excited to see this up for trade because it was one book that I was very, very sad about not getting at BEA this summer.  Now I have it, and it is a September release, so I'll be reading it sometime this month hopefull!  I didn't realize how thick of a book it was!  But yay!

Received in mail from?:
 

I apologize to whoever I got this from.  I seem to remember winning it from a giveaway, but I didn't save the email I guess that said I'd won it.  But it came in the mail this past week from The Book Depository, looks like the one in England, so that should help me remember, but I can't.  And I feel so bad!  But it was an awesome surprise!  

I also got a ton of stuff to giveaway in my blogoversary, and I know a few authors who are still sending some things.  So please, if you haven't already, click the button below and go enter my giveaway. The first entry is free!  No hoops to jump through other than clicking a button!

  3. What a COOL haul!!! I got "Beautiful Redemption" at the Miami Book Fair last year, and signed, too -- by Kami Garcia!!!

    The novellas are entirely new to me, but, since I don't read ebooks, I'm not interested, unless they become available in print in the near future. They look great, so I hope they are!

    "Afterworlds" and "The Madman's Daughter" are on my TBR. Great that you got them!

    Thanks for sharing, and for commenting on my own STS!! : )

    1. I know some authors have been releasing the novellas all together in one book. Like Four by Veronica Roth. And I know The Selection Stories by Kiera Cass. I heard that Jonathan Maberry is going to, and also all the short stories for Cassandra Clare. Thanks for returning the visit.

    1. Well there are two series you can start! :-) I always hate when I am late to start, but then at least you can read them all one right after another.

    1. It definitely does get easier, at least it did for me. I love Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series, so I'm sure I'll probably enjoy this as well! Thanks for stopping by!
