Stacking the Shelves [48]

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we get to show off the books we've won, bought, or otherwise received in the past week. If a book catches your eye, *click* to go to the Goodreads page of that book.

Hello again all. Take a deep breath with me- finals are over and there's no more packing! I'm finally settled back at home for the summer which means more time to read- and also presents. I haven't been home since Christmas, and I came home to a plethora of books that were sent to this address as opposed to my school address on the other side of the state. That being said, this is going to be a reaaaaaaaaaally long post. Sorry in advance!

Be on the lookout next week for a few blog stops and giveaways. What did you get?


  1. Holy hell you've got a massive haul, I'd be sleeping with those books as my blanket like Smaug if I were you lol I don't think there's a title in there that I don't think is interesting, I'm so jealous. I've only gotten one book this week, and wouldn't you know it I won it from one of your giveaways :) I received The Summer I Wasn't Me just in time for my birthday.

  2. Woo, I'm glad finals are over! That means more time to read right? :D

    I haven't read any of these books yet but I hope they're all amazing - I didn't fancy Dark Amelia although I'm waiting on more reviews of it, so I might end up reading it anyway. Love the font on A Creature of Moonlight though, I kind of want that (I'm a serious font hoarder). :D

    New follower via BL, hi! Under The Mountain's STS

    1. That is definitely what it means!

      I'm a sucker for things involving Shakespeare, so Dark Aemilia was one I needed to snag. And the font on A Creature of Moonlight IS gorgeous, that's the book I'm reading now.

      Thanks so much for the follow, heading to your blog now!

  3. Wow, so many books. I hope you enjoy!

    My StS.

  4. I LOVE the cover for Ice Dogs! I just want to give that guy a great big cuddle! I'm so jealous of the swag for it as well! Great book haul-should keep you busy the rest of the year!

    1. I love the cover too! I had an eARC but got lucky with a signed copy. I recommend it! Thanks for dropping by. :)

  5. Wow - that is a lot! I got Through to You a couple of weeks ago when I found it for a pound for a discount bookstore - I haven't read it yet, but it sounds pretty intriguing and it's fairly short too so I can read it quickly when I decide to do so :)

    Happy reading and have a good weekend!

    1. I look forward to your review when you get to it. Discount scores are always the best :)

  6. Wow!! You picked up a ton of books this week. I really want to read the Eve series by Anna Carey, but I haven't started it yet. Wait for You is another book I really want to read.

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books!!

    Here is my STS:

    1. I haven't read the series yet either, since I have only got book three but I am SUPER excited for Wait For You. JLA is one of those authors I see talked about constantly but haven't read yet. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Wow great haul! I've been meaning to read "Wait for You" but I haven't had the time. Happy reading!

    Tsuki’s STS

    1. I'm so excited, it's my first taste of JLA. Thanks for visiting my post!

  8. Oh my goodness, that must have taken you ages to sort out! So many pretty books. I hope that you enjoy them.

    1. It really did. There were so many envelopes and I HAD to sort them because they were all on my bed and I couldn't sleep without moving them lol

  9. Oh my. What an amazing haul of books. Firebug looks really good. You got so many wonderful books this week. I hope you love everything that you got this week.

    Books of Love

    1. Thanks so much! I'm really excited for Firebug.

  10. WOW! That's a ton of books!

  11. Woahhhh, so many books! That's awesome, Jillyn! Might I recommend The Beautiful and the Cursed/The Lovely and the Lost? I LOVE that series so so so so much! Historical fiction with a healthy dose of fantasy - love! I hope you enjoy all of your new books!! :)

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    Check out my STS post!

    1. Definitely! I'm not reading them in any particular order, so after I finish my current read, A Creature of Moonlight, I'm definitely going to check out The Beautiful and the Cursed. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll be by the blog in a moment :)

  12. Great haul! Ice Dogs looks interesting as does feedback. I have Surrender but have yet to read it. I hope you enjoy these and congrats on finishing out your school year! Happy Reading!
    Here are my newest additions.

    1. Thank you so much. It feels so great to be free for the summer!

      Ice Dogs got a 4/5 from me, I'd recommend it. Thanks so much for stopping by my post.

  13. Wow.. lots of books. I have been wanting to read Through to You for a while now. Can't wait to see what you think!
