Hello Readers!

Welcome to Stacking the Shelves #8. Even though I don’t have a lot of books to share with you today, they are all books I’m super excited about.

StackingtheShelves

This week I received my prize – Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff – from Sarah from WhatSarahRead, and I am super excited about it. So much so that I want to dig right into it. But I won’t – I want to wait until the Halloween time to read this book.

In preparation of this year’s YALLFest, I bought myself paperback copies of TTFN and L8R, G8R both by Lauren Myracle. Now I know what you’re thinking, why would you buy book two and three, but not the first book? Because I already own (and read!) TTYL. Since Lauren Myracle signed TTYL for me at a signing I went to a few months back, I figured YALLFest would be the perfect chance to get the rest of the books in the series signed. (P.S. I have an arc of YOLO I will also be taking with me.)

Lastly, yesterday was a surprise mail day for me. From the lovely folks over at Bloomsbury I received a copy of Soulprint by Megan Miranda. Again, another book I’m super excited about. I read Fracture and Vengeance and really enjoyed everything about them.

Like I said, not too many books, but still books I’m excited about.

What books did you recently get, dear readers? Please share!

Hello Readers!

It’s been quite some time since I posted one of these, so I figured why not schedule a post of all the books I’ve gotten lately. Some of these I have bought, some of them are arcs that were send to me for review from the publishers, and one was a gift to me from the #summerboxswap that Miss Print and I hosted a little while back.

Hello Readers!

How  are you on this lovely Saturday morning? I hope you are well and that, like me, you had a fantastic book week.

This week I’ll be posting my BEA edition of Stacking the Shelves. Now, you would think that today I would be posting the books I picked up on Day 2 of Book Expo. But  I’m not. Because I combined both stacks of books (for traveling purposes) I don’t remember which books I picked up on which day. But that’s no big deal. You’re interested in the books, not when I actually picked them up, right?

So without further adieu, I give you part two of my BEA haul:

Hello Readers!

I’m back for a very special edition of Stacking the Shelves. Last week I was lucky enough to attend Book Expo America, aka BEA. It was a great time full of books, meeting new faces, books, meeting some of my favorite (or soon to be favorite) authors, and of course more books!

With that said, I bet you are wondering what books I was lucky enough to get at BEA. Today, I’ll be posting about the books I got on Day 1 of BEA (Thursday May 29th). So, sit back (there’s a lot) and enjoy!

That’s all for me this week, dear readers! What did you all get this week, and what are you most excited about! Please share, I’m always up for chatting about books!

Hello Readers!

It’s been a slow few weeks for me — book wise. But I do have a few new books I’ve received I’d like to share with you. Some of these books I bought, and others were given to me. As of now, I’ve only read one, but I’m super excited to read all of them.

wewereliars

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

I was lucky enough to get an e-galley of E. Lockhart’s latest novel from Netgalley a few weeks back. Anyone who knows me know that I’m a big E. Lockhart fan in general. I read this book, and not surprisingly loved it. So much so, that I think there is a re-read in my future. But that’s besides the point. I read this back in January, but I knew I had to have it. An arc of it wouldn’t suffice. So I preordered it via Amazon, and it was delivered on the day it was published.

This past week I was lucky enough to meet E. Lockhart and have her sign my copy at a Books of Wonder event that Miss Print and I attended. It was a great event. If you want to hear all about it, head over to Miss Print’s blog for a fabulous recap.

now&forever

Now & Forever by Susane Colasanti

In all honesty, Now & Forever is one of my highly anticipated books of 2014! I’ve read several of Susane Colasanti’s books, and I love each one more and more. Even though I am trying my best not to buy any books (especially with BEA14 literally next week) I splurged. I just needed to have this book! Why? Because it has me written all over it!

And best of all: it’s signed by Susane herself!

teaseexquisite

Tease (ARC) by Amanda Maciel & Exquistie Captive (ARC) by Heather Demetrios

Both of these books were gifted to me from my fellow blogger and real life bff Miss Print! She has been spoiling me rotten with all sorts of bookish-goodies. These two are books that she knew I’m both curious and excited to read. So I can’t wait to dig into them, and share my thoughts/feelings with everyone.
