Stacking the Shelves

This week was wonderful for my book haul! I got one of my most anticipated reads– The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski. I’m obsessed with her writing and this series. I dropped everything to read it and I’m nearly done. It is amazing.

I also got sick this week. My whole family got hit with a cold and I’m the last to come down with it. I thought I’d escaped! Darn! I am on cold medicine so feel better but I don’t feel all there in the head. Medicine brain for sure.

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.

AHHHH! The Winner’s Crime is inΒ  my hands! I swooned upon opening the package. I have been wanting this one since the moment I read The Winner’s Curse. If you’ve followed this blog for awhile you’ll recall my complete adoration of Marie Rutkoski and her writing.

Soulprint’s summary seemed so interesting I had to request it. I’m hoping it’s as wonderful as I hope it’ll be.



Our Lego cover art for Crown of Midnight was included in the Heir of Fire fan trailer! I was pumped! And today I received this massive package from Bloomsbury and look what was inside! So amazing of them.

Jon at Scott Reads It! is such a great friend and got The Iron Trial signed for me. Thank you! That cover is even more beautiful in person. Pictures don’t do it near justice.

How was your week?

    Oooh I remember the craze that occurred when everyone got their Winner’s Crime arcs! I feel terrible because I’ve had The Winner’s Curse sitting on my TBR for months and months and have yet to get to it D; I really want to, but maybe I should hold on so that it’ll be closer to the release of the second book (that way the withdrawal won’t be as bad πŸ˜‰ ) I picked up The Young Elites this week and Every Breath and Every Word because Nikki just kept raving on about the series! I hope you have a great upcoming week x

      Oh, I hope you get to read The Winner’s Curse soon and that you love it. I absolutely adored it. I finished The Winner’s Crime and it was just as perfect. I would say it might do nicely to wait to read them back to back because the wait is very painful. I totally read Every Breath because of Nikki too! I really want Every Word. Have a great week Jess!

      I dropped everything and read TWC and it was spectacular. If you’re unsure about The Iron Trial get it in PB or from the library. I enjoyed it but I’ve been on a MG kick lately.

      I need the UK versions for Throne of Glass. They are ALL SO PRETTY. I feel your intense pain in waiting for The Winner’s Crime. I don’t think they’ll have arcs for the last book so we’ll all be crying waiting for it πŸ™

      How have you resisted reading TWC so far? I had to drop everything and read, read, read. Now I’m sort of sad because it’s over and I have to wait forever for the last book to release *sobs*
