Stacking the Shelves - September 13th, 2015

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I did actually buy a book this week, or a book related item I guess I should say. But other than that, I did pretty well.  I also got two awesome e-galleys this week.  One that I had just even planed a WOW for later this month!  So here we go.  

Physical Books:





My e-galley of Dark Shimmer expired before I got to finish it, so I checked it out.  I got an ARC of The Curious Tale of the In-Between as a trade on Twitter.  I got an awesome prize pack of swag and the book Mania from the author J.R. Johansson for reading and reviewing the e-galley of it before it came out.  I love that series!  And then, I had to order from the bookstore where I work, The Raven's Prophecy Tarot card set that was drawn by Maggie Stiefvater herself.  I wasn't lucky enough to win any of them back when all the giveaways were being held, but I had to buy a set when I could.  

E-galleys:



 The first one I got from Netgalley, and it was one I'd just done a WOW post for later this month on.  The second one I found Friday night.  I was showing a fellow bookstore employee how Edelweiss worked on my Nook, and it was just there!!!  I was so excited I immediately requested it and was approved!  So excited.  I just love Sarah Rees Brennan's books!

Free e-books:



 Both were free on Amazon.  I think I did pretty good only getting two free books this week.

A smaller haul for the week for me, which is a good thing. Although I did get a bunch of books at a garage sale for my school library. But I won't be sharing it on here, just too many.  

What did you add to your shelves this week!

  3. Ooh, I have the first two books of the Nightwalkers series, but I haven't gotten to them yet. I'll have to ban myself from checking out library books for a month so I can read some of the stuff I own. >_<

    1. The last one was pretty good. You should go check it out! :-) Banning? I did that with buying, and I'm trying really hard on e-galleys to not request so much. But it's so hard! :-)

    1. Actually it's not a book, it is the Tarot card set that she designed for The Raven Boys. So many people said they wanted it that they ended up making sets to sell.

  7. I like your book haul. My stacking the shelves post didn't happen this week. I'll just post two weeks next week. I've had the most difficult time just catching up on reading / reviewing. :)
