Stacking the Shelves/Showcase Sunday

Christmas is behind us and I’m actually a tad relieved. My family has been sick off and on since Thanksgiving. I’m ready for us to be well! Since I was feeling so bleh this has two weeks worth of books.

This post is both Showcase Sunday a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea and Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review.

Thank you Stephanie (Inspiring Insomnia)! I can’t wait to reread Legend and fall in love with this series.

What books have you gotten lately?

    Ooooh, pretty sweet swag, even Christmas-y!
    I’m a wee bit envious of you getting Into The Still Blue, Fire & Flood & Cress ARCs! But I can’t really complain cause I got some sweet surprises in the mail this week myself!

    Happy Holidays & Happy reading, Kristen!

    Ohh, gorgeous books πŸ˜€ Awesome box sets. Love the Legend one; have it too πŸ™‚ And ahh. CRESS. <3 The ARC is pretty gorgeous. Though I feel that mine is starting to "die.." though I have been very careful with it πŸ™‚ Anyway. And Into the Still Blue is so so good. <3 Hope you enjoy everything sweetie πŸ™‚

      I was so happy to get Cress πŸ™‚ I have just started ItSB…very excited but sad to see the series end. I can’t wait to read all the LEgend books. Heard such great things

    • says

      Thank you! I couldn’t believe I won. Anytime I get that email or notification I always can’t believe it. So happy because I’ve not read the Goddess Test series but have wanted to for so long. Thank you for stopping by!

      I read Legend and wasn’t blown away (this was a long time ago). Everyone loves it so very much I want to give it another go. I’m glad to hear you think it gets better with every book. I’m crazy curious about F&F too. not sure what to expect.

  3. says

    Impressive book haul!! I’m a little jealous about Cress … I did get Scarlett for Christmas though, so it’ll be a little bit before I’m really needing Cress LOL and WOW! The Queen of the Tearling sounds amazing! just added it to my TBR at Goodreads – sad that it doesn’t come out until July. Can’t wait to get my hands on that one!

    Hope you and your family are feeling better soon! maybe it’s your body saying you just need to stay in bed, relax and read all your wonderful new books πŸ™‚

      I loved Scarlet very much…I hope you do too. I was so happy a blogger friend told me about the Queen of Tearling. I’d not heard of it but I’m very excited.

      Thank you so much for the well wishes! I have been trying to stay in bed and rest as much as possible. I’ve been the sick where you kind of don’t want to read because you feel so bleh. But I’ve felt much improved today.

    I am so tempted to buy a Legend boxed set so I can have all the books matching… But I already own them all, just have to read Champion (which I am putting off cause I’m scared).

    I am also incredibly jealous of your Cress ARC. I really really really want a copy and it almost seems as if everyone but me is getting one ;'( You’re other ARCs sound really good too. I’d never heard of the Blood Guard or The Queen of the Tearling before.

    I hope you enjoy them all!

    Here’s what I didn’t exactly get for Christmas

    • says

      I’ve only read Legend and it was from the library. I’m so happy to have the box-set. I love having all the books match πŸ™‚

      I’m sorry you didn’t get Cress πŸ™ I’m hoping The Queen of Tearling is wonderful. Thank you so much for stopping by!

    • says

      I read Legend right when it came out and I wasn’t blown away. Since I’ve heard such amazing things about it and the series I’m going to reread it and I’m hoping I love it πŸ™‚

  5. says

    Forever jealous you have the Cress ARC. I need it in my lifeeeee. πŸ˜€ I really need to start the Legend series since I’ve heard many good things about the series.

    • says

      Hi Cee! So happy you stopped by πŸ™‚ I have heard such great things about the Legend series too. EVERYONE loves it. Perhaps there needs to be a readalong for us that need to read it.

  6. says

    So excited for Cress! Fire and Blood looks fantastic. I think I need to pick the Legend series too, been hearing wonderful things, and now that the series done, there’s no wait time! Hope you enjoy all your new books! Glad to hear everyone’s recovering for being sick!

    Here’s my Sunday Post & STS at Bookmunchies (:

      I just finished Into the Still Blue tonight…SO good πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to see what you think of it. I am very excited to read Fire & Flood. Thinking I’ll have to start it sooner than later.

  7. says

    You know, I think Legend was my favorite of the series, so I hope that is not a bad sign. 0_0 I need to get started on Rossi’s series – I’ve got all three books, so I have no excuse.

    I haven’t heard of Queen of the Tearling, so I’m going to have to check that one out.

    • says

      I’m excited to reread Legend. I’ve read so many different books now then when I read it before…I’m very curious how I’ll feel about it. Thank you so much for the box set!!

  8. says

    Sorry to hear you guys have been sick, too! Usually, it’s the rest of my family that gets sick and my immediate family remains healthy, but we didn’t escape it this year. Hope you’re all back to 100% soon!

    Okay, so I had to go and request Queen of the Tearling…I didn’t realize it wasn’t technically YA? Huh. Oh, well, still sounds pretty awesome, and apparently I’d already wanted to read it because it was already on my TBR. πŸ™‚ Enjoy all your new reads!!!

    • says

      Ugh, we’ve been fighting the sick here forever! I feel like we’ll never get 100%. I hope you all feel better sooner than later too.
      I hope Queen of Tearling is good! Jon from Scott Reads It told me about it and I needed it. I love it when I go to add something and realize I’ve already marked it as to read πŸ™‚
