Stacking the Shelves

This past week my family has gotten a cold so this will be a lazy version of Stacking the Shelves. I’ve taken one picture of all the books from the last two weeks and I apologize for no links to Goodreads.  We are mostly on the mend but are still on cold meds and feeling out of sorts still. Hopefully we can fully recoup over the weekend. Beyond that nothing has been going on. I hope to get caught up on all the reviews I need to write. I’ve been more in the mood to read and less in the mood to write reviews.

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.

For Review- Thank you Harper, Abrams, Algonquin and Disney!


THE CURE FOR DREAMING! I absolutely loved In the Shadow of Blackbirds last year and can’t wait to read Winter’s next novel. I am so thrilled. That goes for In a Handful of Dust and Killer Instinct. So many books I’m excited for in that pile. Some like, Messenger of Fear, I don’t know anything about so I’ll need to run over to Goodreads and see what I have in store.
Last Week’s Posts:

I had an issue with Akismet last week so a good day and half’s worth of comments were eaten and never to be seen again. So, if you commented on my The Perilous Sea or The Jewel review and don’t see it that’s why. I never got to read them which makes me very sad. I read Lailah and Firebug last week- one I really enjoyed and the other not as much.

I’ll be posting my interview with Will Ritter the author of Jackaby this month! I’m so excited to share it so be sure to keep your eye out for it.

I wasn’t active on Twitter this week so have no idea what’s going on with everyone. Did I miss anything?

      I hope The Miniaturist is a wonderful read and we both enjoy it 🙂 I’m not sure I’ve seen the UK cover. I’ll have to look it up.

I don't even want to read it.. maybe peek a little, lol. But I did not like book one at all, not really :\ Sigh. Best of luck if you read it, hih. Happy reading Kristen. <3

      So far I’m really loving The Witch’s Boy. the writing is so good. I think it’ll be a great read for me. I wasn’t in love with the first book either but I’ll probably start this one to see if I like it or not.

    Hope you are all feeling better! Looking forward to The Witch’s Boy! You got a lot of great books this week! I was on vacation so I didn’t get anything new which is a very good thing 🙂

    Enjoy all your new reads and Have a great week!!! <3

      We feel much better today! I am so curious about The Miniaturist. Looks really good…we’ll see. Hopefully I’ll read both sooner than later.

    I hope you and your family kick that cold real soon! Being sick is the worst. I haven’t written a review in over a week, so I definitely feel you on not being in the mood for writing these days. But anyway, just LOOK AT THESE BOOKS! You’ve got a great stack here, Kris! I’ll be reading IN A HANDFUL OF DUST really really soon! Next week, I think. Can’t wait! 🙂

      I should have known but having a 4 year old means we’re sick like every other month. I’ve never gotten colds so often in my life! I love that stack of books and I tend to start at it 🙂

      Me too Kirsty-Marie! I loved both books and so excited. I’ve been tempted to cheat on my reading list but so many September books need to be read.

    Glad to hear you’re feeling at least a little better! And niiiice, such great books you got in this haul!
    Take care of yourself and feel better soon! Happy reading, Kristen!

    I got a bunch of those, too, plus some others. I love these epic book hauls, but they’re seriously going to cause me to have a panic attack. At least when the galleys are on my Kindle, I can’t SEE how many I have stacked up. But I’m supremely grateful, and whatever I don’t get to, I’ll end up giving away. 🙂 Hope you enjoy your epic haul! =)
