Stacking the Shelves (7) ~ Gifts, Prizes, and Netgalley

This is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we share what books we have recently added to our physical or virtual shelves.

My last Stacking the Shelves was from October 12th, so here are all the books I've added to my bookshelves since then.

This is . . . yet another big haul, but it wasn't an expensive one.  Out of everything, I spent about six dollars, and two of that was on a book I forgot to post in the last STS post. 

The ebook I forgot to mention last time

Bought since last STS

Free ebooks

Birthday Load
I went to the bookstore on Saturday, and I got some pretty awesome books. 

I finally got a Gayle Forman book. I've been saying to other bloggers that I haven't read any of her books, but that I really, really needed to. And I finally did it! I started it on Saturday and stayed up all night until I reached the end. 

The rest of the books I got were hardcovers. 


I've actually read the four in the middle, but I read the first three from the library and the fourth one on my kindle. Now I finally have the books, and can continue the series!

  1. So many great books! The Burning Sky...I absolutely loved it, one of the best books I've read in awhile. And Time Between Us, also loved it...such a great book! And Evolution of Mara Dyer is one of my favorite series, I can't wait for Retribution. Meant to Be was so good, I was excited to get Being Sloane Jacobs too. Have fun reading! ~Pam

    1. I'm glad to hear you liked all of those books! It makes me even more excited to read them.

  2. I haven't read any Gayle Forman either... I want to though.

    I need to buy The Evolution of Mara Dyer, and really want to read The Burning Sky. I love the Heroes of Olympus series and hope you do too.

    So much Iron Fey!! I own all of those except Iron Legends (which I plan to buy eventually). I want to read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children eventually too.

    Great haul :)

    1. I kept telling my self to get The Evolution of Mara Dyer for a very, very long time. It felt like forever before I finally decided to just get the book.

  3. Arclight is so pretty :) And I loved The Burning Sky! Like, lovedlovedloved. Historical fantasy is my FAVORITE genre :D
