Stacking The Shelves

It has been so long since I’ve done a Stacking the Shelves post (since May !!!). I’ve really not gotten a ton of mail this summer and I’ve felt like I’ve had so very little time. We got a puppy and my kiddo is home so my time has been taken by fun family things. I find I am never sitting at my laptop and days go by without me even cracking it open. I imagine this is typical for summer-time. I can feel school ramping up and my desire to blog has been increasing. Hopefully, I’ll be posting more consistently from here on out!

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.

So, I’ve been active over on Bookstagram for about 4 months now and I’m so so excited to be repping for a few lovely, creative types. I’m going to feature my latest- Novelly Yours. These soy candles are AMAZING. I have 4 of them and I love each and every scent. I do think Winter might be my favorite. I love that these candles are made by one of our very own bookish blogging folks Brittany over at The Book Addict’s Guide

Each of these candles smell divine and they burn clean since they are soy. I love that they don’t agitate my headaches (certain smells set me off). And, if you are tempted, you can get 10% off any order with the code- MFAF10


And one last thing! Last week the wonderful folks at Griffin Teen sent along a sampler of Wintersong– my latest bookish obsession (it was in part influenced by Labyrinth– the best movie ever). This book doesn’t release until early 2017 but I’m CRAVING it now. I read the first 40 pages and I loved it. So much so in fact that I thought I’d do a giveaway for a pre-order of the book. Click on the picture below to read more about the book and enter to win a pre-order (it’s an international giveaway too!)


I think that’s all my updates! It feels like forever since I chatted with you all- how are you? What are you reading?? I just finished The Shadow Hour and trying to figure out what to pick next.

    Wintersong looks amazing. I really like the cover. Labyrinth was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I see quite a nice selection of books this week.

      Yes! Labyrinth is still one of my faves. I’m a huge David Bowie fan and I attribute that to him as The Goblin King. I never could shake my love of him from that role.

    Oooh very nice! I have Edge of Everything waiting for me in my TBR pile! I can’t wait to read it either! Hope you enjoy all your new lovelies!!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Ahh, I really need to read the first in Rae Carson’s series. I’ve had it for a while, and the covers of both are so pretty…

    I still haven’t seen Labyrinth. Every time I see you mention it I feel like I need to watch it even more.

    You’re a rep for Novelly Yours! That’s awesome. I love her candles and your photographs. Great combination.

    I have really grown to like candles, especially fall scents. That’s so cool that you’re repping for someone. I love the cover for A River Glorious. It really is beautiful.
