Stacking the Shelves #20: In Which I Have a Book Addiction

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.


Hey guys! So, this is my first non-video STS post. I just needed a break from filming. I’m not sure how to best format this, so I’d definitely appreciate some feedback! Originally, I wanted the covers facing out, but there were SO MANY BOOKS, especially under the “bought” category, that I felt like it would take forever to do. But let me know if you’d prefer that!

These are all the books I’ve received since I came home from BEA, including eBooks:

    Most of that is my fault, school took over and then summer classes took over and then my summer job will take over and everything else falls through O_O

    Anyway. I have The Vault of Dreamers! I have not read it yet though :o I absolutely hated The Vanishing Season, which is really sad, because the cover is gorgeous. I love the Mara Dyer books! And I’ve sort of enjoyed Megan Shepherd’s trilogy so far – the love triangle is kind of ugghhh (I hate love triangles lol). I LOVED All That Glows! And I’m eyeing that copy of The Inventor’s Secret – you’ll have to personally let me know how it is. HAH! There’s our conversation starter! I’ll be expecting it ;D

    Have a fabulous weekend, Meredith!

    Check out my STS post!

    • I’ve heard some REALLY bad/mixed things about The Vanishing Season, but I’m going to try to keep an open mind! I’ve heard mostly amazing things about Megan Shepherd, but I’ve heard the animal experiments get gory and detailed in The Madman’s Daughter so I’m like *Covers eyes, runs* BUT, if I can get through that, Her Dark Curiosity seems awesome and I’m ALREADY excited for A Cold Legacy, cause I LOVE Frankenstein!

  2. OMG, your book haul is just AMAZING!! I can’t believe hos many terrific books you got!! I’m bookmarking this page for future reference, too, so I can start adding all of these books to my TBR shelves on Goodreads!!

    I’m not familiar with the ebooks, but I’ll also check them out — to see if they’re available in print. You see, I don’t like to read ebooks at all.

    I think I’ll contact the publisher of “The Vault of Dreamers”, to see if I can get a review copy. I’ve heard great things about this one!

    Thanks for sharing, and Happy Reading!! : )

    • Woohoo!!! Always happy to help a fellow booknerd add to their TBR! ^_^ I don’t really like eBooks, either, but I read them when I can’t get the book in print and I read a lot of review books that way. You get used to it! Good luck getting The Vault of Dreamers! Hope you love it!!

  3. P.S. I almost forgot to give you feedback on the post. I think it looks GREAT!! The photos are excellent; you can clearly see all the titles, and the lighting is perfect. So no worries, it looks just fine! But I will in future be checking out your video STS posts, if you ever do them again. : )

  4. Such great books, enjoy reading them! I always love to see what other people have got! I’ve put the books I’ve bought in a post before I bought them, but it was like Christmas when I actually received my box from amazon.

  5. I also got Of Scars and Stardust! It’s one of my most anticipated fall releases, so I’m really excited that I actually got it. Good luck on The Madman’s Daughter. Hopefully, you really like it. I loved Dear Killer! Not a lot of people seem to have liked it as much as I did, sadly. It’s not for everyone. :( You did fine with the formatting. I hope you enjoy your new books!

    • I’m SO excited for Of Scars and Stardust!!! Doesn’t it look awesome?!? I’m crossing my fingers for The Madman’s Daughter! I know, a lot of people HATED Dear Killer. We’ll see how it goes!

  6. Wow, you’ve got a pretty amazing haul this week – a great selection of books. I have Landline and am excited to get to that one, the premise sounds really unique. I didn’t enjoy the only Rowell book I read but I am hopeful that I will enjoy this one. I hope you enjoy all your reads this week :) Here’s my STS.

  7. I love book piles!! What a niiiice pile of purchases! I loved Crewel and I still need to read the sequel, hopefully soon!
    I got Free To Fall but on Kindle, that cover is so gorgeous, cannot wait to hear what you think of it, cause I also still need to read it!
    Happy reading, Meredith!

    • When Crewel first came out, I had no desire to read it. This is one time the cover change intrigued me! I love the new covers and I think the cover for the third book looks excellent, so I’m excited!
