Stacking the Shelves (9)

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.

It's officially my Thanksgiving break! I have the rest of the month off of school, so I'll be reading and blogging a lot this upcoming week. I'm hoping to get a lot done before I have to go back to school.

My last Stacking the Shelves was from November 8th, so here are all the books I've added to my bookshelves since then. (Each cover is linked to the books' Goodreads pages.)

Free on Amazon


Bought for Kindle

For Review


I forgot one . . . 
Thank you to Angie @ Pinkindle!

I also wanted to add the two books I bought today! I tend to buy books the same day I post my STS, but I'm too excited for these ones to wait until next time to post them.

Bought in Hardcover

How was you week?


  1. World After!! I can't wait to get my hands on this one and seeing all these amazing reviews makes it even harder to stick to my book buying ban. :( I really hope you enjoy it though, I hear that Raffe and Penryn are as awesome as ever. ;)

    In Too Deep is on my TBR and it sounds like a pretty intense read so I hope you like it as well.

    It's my first visit to your blog so I have no idea how it looked previously but I have got to say that it looks pretty cool now. ;)

    Happy Reading, Kaitlin! :)

    1. Thanks for visiting! I love it when a brand new visitor comments. :)

      I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy World After. Angelfall was amazing, and I think its sequel can live up to it. And In Too Deep looks so good! I've had my eye on it for a long time.

  2. I'm debating on picking up Cornerstone. I also bought World After and I can't wait to start reading it to see what happens next. :)

    Great haul!

    Check out my new books!
    -Seirra @ Dear, Restless Reader

    1. Cornerstone is free, so it wouldn't hurt to pick it up now. I'm looking forward to World After too. The first book was so good!

  3. Awesome haul of books. You got a lot of interesting books. Come check out my haul as well.

    Books of Love

  4. The Bane looks pretty good :) And I recently finished Through the Ever Night and really enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by My Haul!

  5. I haven't read any of these books, but I did get The Bane as a review copy, but unfortunately it expired before I could read it. I recognize World After because that's the sequel for Angelfall, right? Happy reading!

    1. Yep, it's the sequel. Angelfall is so good!

  6. I missed The Bane. I will have to go back and have a look.

  7. WORLD AFTER! I am seeing that on a lot of hauls this week and I want it now lol. Waiting for my review copy if it does arrive. I haven't read The Bane yet though even though it's on my Kindle. Hope you enjoy all your reads and thanks for stopping by mine!

    Jeann @ Happy Indulgence

    1. I hope you get your review copy soon! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  8. Also got Cornerstone for Kindle, hopefully it's good! And I have Angelfall, but haven't had a chance to read it yet! Hope it's good!
    Thanks for visiting my StS!

  9. I've heard so many good things about Avalon! I already have an e-ARC of it but I still need to read a few books before I get around to it. I hope you enjoy it! Through the Ever Night is fantastic too! And I still need to buy World After and The Fiery Heart. Those two inlcuding Champion are my most anticipated books of November. I haven't read any of them though. :( Happy reading!

    Chel @ The Procrastinator's Corner

    1. I'm 70 percent through Avalon right now, and it's so good!

  10. Enjoy all of your books! I've seen people totally excited over Angelfall, so can't wait to hear what you think!

    Also, Star Cursed is REALLY good. Trust me when I say you're going to be flailing!! :D Thank you so much for stopping by my StS!!

    Jess @ Reading Nook Reviews

    1. I'm glad to hear that about Star Cursed! I really liked Born Wicked, so I'm sure I'll like its sequel. :)

  11. Through the Ever Night is amazing! I can't wait to read the next one soon :)
    And Allegiant just about killed me, you'll need a real tough skin to read that one.
    Great books this week!

    My haul

    1. I'm not very far into Through the Ever Night yet, but so far it's good! It may take me a long time to read Allegiant. I know it's going to be a really tough read, so I'm most likely going to end up keep pushing it back until I finally decide to just read it.

      Thank you for stopping by!

  12. World After looks really good and a lot of people have been raving over it so I'll probably get it when I have more money in my wallet, HAHA! Allegiant was kinda meh for me since I thought the series lost steam with Insurgent but if you're a big fan of the series, you'll definitely cry over it.

    Happy reading!

    1. I'm a big fan of the series AND it doesn't take a whole lot in a book to make me cry. I consider myself the Queen of Crying While Reading, so . . . Allegiant is going to be tough for me.

  13. Allegiant made my stomach cryyyy huhu

    followed ya on bloglovin

    I don't have an STS this week, but we do have lots of giveaways! Hope you stop by! <3 I'm giving away a signed copy for Wait For you by J.Lynn

    1. Allegiant is probably going to do the same thing to me! Thank you for following! I'll definitely check your blog out. :)

  14. Brilliant haul :-) You've got some awesome books this week. I hope that you enjoy them all :-)

    1. Any haul with a Richelle Mead book is an awesome haul, so I have to agree with you. Happy reading. :)

  15. Very nice haul! I got World After and The Firey Heart as well. And I've already read (and loved!) The Fiery Heart.

    Great haul :) I hope you'll enjoy all your new books. Thanks for stopping by earlier.

    Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

    1. You're welcome! I'm definitely looking forward to The Fiery Heart. :)

  16. Thanks for stopping by my STS! I just picked up Bloodlines and Angelfall this week from the library. They sounds like great series!

  17. Through the Ever Night was soooooooooooooo goooooooood!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Awesome book haul! Through the Ever Night is next on my TBR pile, can't wait to read it and Into the Still Blue back to back. Great that you got so many free books for your Kindle, too. Enjoy them all:)

  19. The Fiery Heart and Allegiant look very nice side by side. :) I hope you've managed to avoid Allegiant spoilers! FWIW, I liked the ending.
