Stacking the Shelves #30

Posted December 29, 2012 by Liza in Memes & Features, Stacking the Shelves / 14 Comments

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.

Hi gorgeous people!  I skipped Stacking the Shelves last week, well….because life happens and I was too busy cleaning and cooking (I’ll have a post about that soon!)  Here’s two weeks worth of books; and let me tell you that I must have been a pretty good girl this year because Santa outdid himself! Thank you Santa! (*wink*)

Purchased for Kindle

Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin – I saw this book in Goodreads and couldn’t help but get it.  It sounds so good!

For Review

Just for Now by Rosalind James – I got this one for a blog tour (coming next week), looks good, right? 

Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – I received this ARC for review this week, it sounds really interesting.  Thank you to Egmont for the opportunity.


As I said, Santa (AKA hubby) outdid himself, he actually read the blog to come up with these!  Let me explain what you’re looking at:

Iron Fey gift set (books 1-4) by Julie Kagawa – I already read the series and I have them all for Kindle, but now I have lovely paper copies.  

Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore – I adored Graceling and Fire and I’ve been dying to get my hands on this one.

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick – I’ve heard amazing things about this one, it looks so sweet 🙂

Matched by Ally Condie – I want to know what the fuss is all about!

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor  – This was my favorite read last year, but I didn’t have my own copy. Now I do!

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein – I’ve also seen wonderful reviews of this one.

Defiance by C.J. Redwine  – Such a lovely cover, can’t wait!

Cinder by Marissa Meyer – Another book that everyone seems to love.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – A co-worker recommended this one and although the cover is a bit off-putting to me, I’m giving it a try. 

I also got these from hubby, my sister, and my mom:

Movies: The Help, Julie & Julia, Becoming Jane and Jane Eyre

CDs: Kelly Clarkson greatest hits, Maroon 5, Two Thalia (Mexican artist) CDs, Habitame Siempre and Primera Fila

A whole year of Paulo Coehlo quotes

And from my lovely son ‘C’: 

Isn’t it sweet?

That’s it for me, what’s stacking your shelves this week?  Let me know if you’ve read any of these!

  1. That’s so sweet from you husband, he got you awesome books. My darling also reads my blog for present ideas 🙂 He got me Daughter of Smoke and Bone for Christmas.
    I enjoyed Graceling, but haven’t gotten to Fire yet, and I’m definitely looking forward to Bitterblue. Your son’s present is adorable.
    Happy reading 🙂

  2. Woah, awesome haul! I can’t wait for Nobody because it sounds super amazing. I really like the cover for it too! I read Matched a while back but I never got around to buying Reached. I hope I get a copy soon. 🙂 I hope you enjoy all of your books!

  3. I am reading Cinder right now, and I can tell you, it is amazing! I usually avoid anything that is even remotely sci-fi, but I decided to give Cinder a try. I love fairytale retellings, and I have heard absolutely rave reveiws for it. And I do not regret it. So good.

    My Life Next Door is good too. I loved the Garrett family.

    Happy reading 🙂

  4. Your Santa(AKA your hubby) gifted you some amazing titles! I’ve recently started the Iron Fey series – need to read book #2- and all the other titles are on my wishlist. I think I will buy Code Name Verity really soon, it’s just so interesting!

    I hope you will enjoy all your books and have a great weekend!
