Stacking the Shelves - December 28th, 2014

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  Christmas week turned out much better than planned in the bookish world.  I got some great e-galleys, as well as some awesome books through YA Book Exchange

Received as Christmas gifts:



Traded for on YA Book Exchange:




 I'm sooooo excited about finally having my hands on a copy of Ensnared.  Yes, it's only an ARC, but I'm a-okay with that!!  Echoes of Us is the third in a series that I have been waiting a while to read.  And while I have already read Ruby Red, I loved it, and needed to own a physical copy of it.  I got all these on a trade with Jane from Much Ado About Books.  

Stripped cover from work:
However I haven't read the first one yet, so guess I'd better check that out from the library soon.

E-galleys:



I don't know if I can express how awesome these two e-galleys are!!  The first one is the sequel to The Taking, which I loved! The 2nd one was on one of my top 10 books for 2015 lists.  I got both of these on Edelweiss.

Free e-book:

It was free and it sounded right up my alley, so I downloaded it.

So, that's my haul.  What did you pull in this past week?  Did you get a lot of books or bookish things for Christmas?  I did get a gift card to Barnes and Noble, and I'll probably get a cookbook I wanted with that.

  7. Excellent haul! I have resisted Edelweiss so far even though I've had an account for years. I wonder if I can continue to resist through 2015? lol

    1. It took me awhile to figure Edelweiss out, but for the most part I have better luck with it than with Netgalley.

  9. What a nice assortment of books! I checked Edelweiss today and, while I couldn't fit either of those two books into my review calendar, I did add some June and July releases. I really want to read The Replaced but will have to wait until it is released. Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy reading and happy new year!

  14. I loved Ruby Red! So cute! Have you read the rest of the series yet?? Oh my gosh, you've reminded me I need to check our stripped books at work. I always forget about them. Oops. Normally there's not much, but I like to check. :)

    I hope you're having a great week!

    1. I have read the whole series now. Just need to own them! I did have the final one in an ARC, but traded it for something else. Now I'm wishing I'd kept it. :-) I try to resist looking at stripped books, but it is so hard! It was a pretty good week for me, back to work next week. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I wish I had more book gift cards, not that I need anymore books. :-) Thanks for stopping by, and thanks about the header, I love having a dog like I own on the top.
