Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review.

This week I acquired some of my most wanted books for the year!

For Review (via publisher):


Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

I already read this one-it was an incredibly addicting read. My review should go up next week.

For Review (via Edelweiss):

 Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin, #3)

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

I have been desperate to read this one and so when I got the email that I had access on Edelweiss I might have squealed a bit.

Gifted (Thank you Jon from Scott Reads It):


This Shattered World by Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman, Jackaby by Will Ritter and The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

I am so thankful to my wonderful bloggy friends. I had several people offer to send Jackaby from seeing my desperate need for this book on Twitter. You reading folks are truly the best. I’ve never loved a community so much. And Jon–thank you so much for grabbing these for me at BEA.



Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

EXCITEMENT. I started this last night after  my husband went out to get me a copy because I was sick. Sweetest husband in the world.

Posts from Last Week:

I have to fangirl a bit because Fierce Reads posted our Lego cover to their tumblr! Mary Pearson will also be adding it to her page dedicated to fan art. So honored for them to include our Lego artwork

      I am thrilled with the books this week *dances* I can’t wait to read them all. I think Jackaby will be next from these. I can NOT wait to hear what you think of Ruin and Rising!

  2. says

    Eeep! You got Mortal Heart AND This Shattered World–awesome. That version of Ruin and Rising is gorgeous! Aw, your husband’s so sweet. <3

      He really is 🙂 I loved R&R and I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks. The gold is prettier in person too. I want the non-collectors edition too

    I NEED SINNER! I hate sitting around waiting for approval. I got Mortal Heart this week, too, but it’s an Adobe Digital. I HATE THOSE. Just let me send it to my Kindle, please. 😛 Still, glad to get it, so I should stop complaining, lol. And it’s nice having such wonderful bloggy friends, isn’t it? 😀

    • says

      I didn’t know Mortal Heart was Adobe Digital! I hate those too *sobs* So happy to have it but now I have to figure out a way to read it without sitting at my computer the whole time. This community is amazing!

      Jackaby looks so good! I can’t wait. Did you get it from EW or NG? I think it was one or the other. I’m actually STILL not feeling well. Urgh. It is never-ending.

  4. says

    I’m so excited about Ruin and Rising – it looks awesome! Mortal Heart also looks amazing.
    Shiver is the next book that I’m planning on reading, mainly because I really want to read Sinner.
    I hope you enjoy your books. 🙂

      Thank you Michelle <3 So happy I got it too. I can't thank you enough for thinking of me with your copy. We are still struggling to get well...thinking now it might be more allergies than cold? Never can tell.

  5. says

    I’m so so excited for Sinner to come out! Eagerly waiting for your review as well. 😀 I really need to read Ruin and Rising as well! Hope you enjoy all your new books. Happy reading!

      Thank you! I still need to write my Sinner review. I took lots of notes but haven’t been in the review writing mood. I hope you love it when you read!

  6. says

    Yay for getting books that you are dying for. I’m also looking forward to reading Mortal Heart and … whaaaat is with all these people finding Ruin and Rising early? That is SO exciting and I need to hit my Barnes and Noble today to see if they have iit *fingers crossed*
    Thanks so much for stopping by! Jen @ YA Romantics

      I hope you found an early copy but if not found one yesterday. It looked like a lot of places were selling out O.O Which is so sad but awesome for Leigh at the same time.

    I have seen His Fair Assassin series around and it has really intrigued me. I would like to check those ones out. I own the first two books to Ruin and Rising and I really need to read them! I have heard so many good things!

    • says

      YES, you need to read the His Fair Assassin series. I preferred the second book to the first but all are great. YES to starting the Grisha series too. You have such great books ahead of you

    • says

      Aw! well you can always pick them back up. I found the last book to be the weakest but Maggie can’t really make a bad book imo. I hope you love them if you do read.

  8. says

    Sigh. <3 The jealousy it killing me, lol 😀 But oh, how I am happy for you. I hope you love them all sweetie. <3 RUIN AND RISING. My copy have not arrived yet :'( So I must start my kindle version tomorrow morning. Ugh. lol. And Sinner! (Okay, fine, I have yet to read Shiver, Linger & Forever, but I ADORE Maggie and I WILL read them as I do own them and I have pre-ordered Sinner. Sigh.) ANYWAY. And Mortal Heart! Dies. So jealous, lol 🙂 I need it. <3 Anyway. Happy reading Kristen 🙂

      Carina! why have you not read Shiver??? Get on that now! well after Ruin and Rising which I can’t wait to hear what you think. You must DM me when you read it. I need to hear your thoughts.

  9. says

    I really need to read The Grisha Trilogy! 🙂 Look at that special edition! It looks so pretty :3

    I have read the Wolves of Mercy Falls series and I loved it! 🙂 I can’t wait to read this one as I really want to see what happened to Isabel and Cole! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing & Enjoy all of your books! 😀

      I’m surprised by how many people haven’t read the Grisha series. I’m almost jealous since you can read them all after one another. I hope you love Sinner when you read it!

  10. says

    ahhhh ok so I’m actually on hold for the bookstore to see if they have the exclusive edition of Ruin and Rising.

    Bloggy friends are definitely THE BEST!~ you’re lucky people hooked you up. If you ever need anything just holler my way =)

    • says

      Oh good! I hope you got the collectors edition. I want the normal one too. can you have too many copies? Nah! I hope you love it and can’t wait to hear what you think.

      Bloggy folks are the very best. You are too sweet <3
