Stacking the Shelves- What an Epic Week in Books

This past week all my bookish dreams came true with the help of some really amazing blogger friends and publishers. I am soooo excited by each of these books.

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

This week I was THRILLED to have the A Torch Against the Night ARC box land on my doorstep. The box contained the Torch arc plus an paperback copy of An Ember in the Ashes AND that beautiful cuff. What a great package Penguin/Razorbill made. I’m so in love with it. I’ve started to reread Ember since I first read it in 2014 and can’t remember lots of details. So far I’m just as enraptured as the first time.

The other goodies are a mix of publisher sent and from bloggy friends. I’m so excited for each of them-Gemina! Strange the Dreamer sampler (and those buttons!!)! The Graces! The Female of the Species! GAH, so excited about them all. I wish I could read faster. Have you heard of Spare and Found Parts yet? It looks FABULOUS.

Those cute little magnetic bookmarks are from Happy Hello! Art. I ADORE them and want moooore.

I have to include this picture of the Torch cuff and book. It’s one of my favorites I’ve taken recently for Instagram.


Speaking of Instagram I’ve fallen in love with Bookstagram and have been spending a ton of time over there. I have really found a passion for bookish still life pics! haha Are you on there? If so if you would like to see my pictures you can here.

    You got a lot of great books this week! I wasn’t a HUGE fan of AEITA so I’m excited to see your thoughts on Torch so I can decide if I want to continue with the series or not! Hope you enjoy all your books!

    Your photos are so absolutely gorgeous they make me want to either try harder to make mine better or give up altogether because I won’t be as good!

    Woooohooo! So many amazing books! I also got a few of them at BEA and must warn you that GEMINA is as awesome or even more than Illuminae was!

    Eeep, I am so excited about Gemina! Hope you enjoy it. 🙂 I am kind of nervous about ATaTN, because of the love triangle/square situation…

    Hi Kristen,
    Nice to meet you! I’m so glad you are so happy with the books you got this week! Congrats!
    I am into Adult books, so our reading tastes are completely different. Everyone is really talking about Gemina, sounds interesting! It does sound like you LOVE what you got! Awesome! That makes ALL the difference when reading!!

    Such pretty books. I’m waiting for Gemina to be available on Audible for pre-order right now. Then it will be MINE. I have An Ember in the Ashes but haven’t read it yet. I need to though. The cover for A Torch Against the Night is really pretty and so cool.
