Stacking the Shelves (7)

"Stacking the Shelves" is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews
This week was an exciting book week for me: my first ever ARCycling win arrived, as did an ARC of The Goddess Inheritance that I won through Twitter. And then a bought a few more (OBVIOUSLY). 

WON


1. 37 Things I Love by Kekla Magoon
My first ARCycling win! I'm so excited read (and review) this one - it looks really interesting. Many thanks to the lovely ARCycling ladies. Your hard work, dedication and list making skills definitely do not go unnoticed by this blogger!

2. The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter
I was on Twitter back in December and all of the sudden Aimee Carter sends out a Tweet saying the first 5 bloggers who email her will win an ARC of The Goddess Inheritance. Yeah. I was ALL over that. 

BOUGHT


3. Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
I've been debating whether or not to pick this series up for a while but then I did and now I need more. Always more.

4. The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell
I LOVE high fantasy so when this one came out, I just knew I had to have it.

5. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
On Wednesday I dragged myself out of bed, went down to 47th and 8th and entered my name in the lotto for Peter and the Starcatcher. It closes on Sunday and I knew that if I didn't catch the Broadway prequel to Peter Pan I would regret it forever. I won, I saw, I laughed, I cried. Guys, it was amazing. Peter Pan has always been a favorite of mine, but this just renewed my undying love of the Disney classic. So I decided that picking up Jodi Lynn Anderson's prequel was the next obvious choice!

6. Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
Another book I've been debating whether or not to buy. And then I did. I'm exciiiited.

7. Remembrance by Michelle Madow
I can't remember how I stumbled upon this book. I think I was just browsing the BN website and I found it, liked the premise, stuck it in my cart and bought it without thinking. I try not to impulse buy anymore, but it appears I can't quite kick the habit.

That's my haul for the week. What did you pick up? Sound off in the comments below!

  2. AhHHHHH Through the Ever Night was so freaking good. I preordered it on Amazon and it just so happened to arrive on my porch a few minutes after I finished Under the Never Sky. That was pretty awesome :P

    hmmm, honestly, I hated Angelfire. I found it insulting and just... poooooorly written. I'm interested to see what you think though, because I know lots of people love it.

    1. Hated? Wow. Hm. I hope I don't hate it. Knowing us, I'm sure we'll have an intense discussion once I get to it.

      Thanks for stopping by lady! <3 <3

  9. LOL I love your story for Aimee Carter's book! I love it when things like that happen, because usually I'm one of the faster ones out there :)

    I hope you enjoy Through the Ever Night and The Cadet of Tildor! I recently got my copy of Through the Ever Night, but haven't read it yet. I put a hold on The Cadet of Tildor at my local public library, so hopefully I'll be off to get that in the next few days!

    Have fun reading! :D
