Stacking the Shelves

I feel like lately SO MANY amazing books have been releasing and my mail has been really spectacular. I am such a happy reader. I immediately had to start reading Caraval and A Shadow Bright and Burning. I’m not far in ASBaB but I’m more than half way through Caraval. It has been one of my favorite books I’ve read. Period. I’ll be starting The Sleeping Prince very soon. I’m so excited.

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.

The Books


I purchased The Rose and the Dagger and The Star Touched Queen and the rest were sent to me by publishers for review consideration. Thank you Flatiron, Scholastic, Random House and Harper!

You might know that I’m showcasing my convention haul from TLA a bit different by taking an individual shot of each picture. I will be using a hashtag over on Instagram for each of these pictures: #mfafTLA16bookhaul. You can find me here.

    Hi Kristen,
    I didn’t know any of these books, they look so tempting to read. Yet I got so many unread books…*sigh* the struggle is real. I had Dead Zone & The Girl who loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks in my mail this week, currently started to read The Elfstones of Shannara and really like it so far 🙂 I hope you’ll like your new books just as much 🙂
