Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews in which we feature all the book goodness that we received, borrowed or purchased during the previous week. All links are to Goodreads.


Life, News and Happenings

Hi there gorgeous readers!  It seems like every week I complained about how busy I am, but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better 🙁  To make it easy to understand, work has been crazy, unadulterated mayhem.  Glad that’s off my chest!

Anyway, I’m almost done with all the shopping and wrapping.  I still have my 10-year old as a believer and I’m trying to cherish this Christmas since it’s very likely it will be his last 🙂  Alas, all children must grow up…

We usually host Christmas dinner every year as a big “open house” event where people come and go, eat and be merry.  Being a military (or former military) family, we have a lot of friends that don’t have family nearby and we all get together instead of being alone by ourselves.  It’s a lot of work though… last year about 50 people showed up.  This year I’m planning on making a LOT of food, but less variety since by the next day I’m so tired that I’m half dead!

I received this lovely gift from Brittany at Big Honcho Media!  Its a journal by Icey designs and it’s so pretty 🙂 Thanks!


Stacking the Shelves

Purchased for Kindle


Songstruck by Sofia Black – I found this one in Amazon for .99 cents and couldn’t help myself!  It sounds SO good too 🙂


masked truth

The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong  –  I loved Armstrong’s books and I hope this one is good.  This cover is kind of creepy, right?


Ruined by Amy Tintera – It sounds SO good too.  I haven’t read any books by Tintera before, but Ruined sounds promising.

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab – I’m sure you don’t need an explanation 🙂

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows – I really like to read historical fiction and any book written by these fabulous authors must be good.  I mean it, it must!

The Nameless City by Faith Erin Hicks  – A graphic novel!!!

simon thorn

Simon Thorn and the Wolf’s Den by Aimeé Carter – Although I haven’t read Carter’s last series, I do adore her Goddess Test series.  This book sounds like a version of Percy Jackson with animals thrown in.  I hope its good 🙂

Thanks to Harper and Macmillan for these!


dark days club

The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman – I won this book from Alyssa Susana over at The Eater of Books and I’m eager to read it since she loved it so much.  (I promise to get to Eon and Eona soo!)


What’s stacking your shelves this week?



I'm an avid reader (since I learned to read at age four) and a book blogger (since May, 2011).I read mostly YA, but I also read romance, new adult and some middle grade.

Born in Puerto Rico, hola :), military wife for 22-years, and mother of three boys.I work full time doing something else that I love (sadly I don't get paid for reading!)

  1. My kids have always known it’s mom and dad that buy their gifts, I can’t even imagine having to keep up the charade for so long.
    Christmas is a huge event in my family too. I have about 40 family members coming to my house, luckily everyone brings the food to me so I do zero cooking. Although I do some baking.
    I feel like I have been non-stop busy for months and it sucks. Enjoy your new books and have a great Christmas!

  2. The Masked Truth is a book I can’t wait to read! It looks amazing and I’ve heard nothing but good things. So excited for Ruined and This Savage Song as well. The Christmas dinner sounds like it’s so much fun, but also a whole lot of work. I hope it’ll go smoothly for you, Liza!
    Have a lovely week! 🙂
