Stacking the Shelves: Week 48

stackingWe are all book lovers and the need to share our enthusiasm is sometimes overwhelming. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

If you’re anything like me, you are probably hoarding books and even though you are excited about your latest book arrival, it might be a while before you get to review it and Stacking The Shelves is a good way to express your undying enthusiasm for those titles! (Hosted by!)

A great haul this week! Huge thanks to HarperTeen, Overlook, Pyr, and Penguin for sending me great stuff to read! I loved “Arclight” and enjoyed “The Circle” – just look for my reviews on them in the archives. I’m really excited for “Star Cursed” and Belladonna”, so here’s hoping they’re awesome!

I splurged a bit this week on “Boy A” and the script for “Never Let Me Go”, I’ll admit, but I’ve seen both films and they’re both amazing, so I want to read the source material. I’m excited for the rest of these too – especially Uglydolls! I collect them, so it’s nice to see they’re going to get their own set of books. Thanks to NG, EW, and their pub partners for granting me access this week!

Not pictured are Still Star-Crossed by Melinda Taub (bought) and The Lost Sun by Tessa Gratton (Amazon Vine), which are on their way to the witch.

What the hell am I doing when I admit I bought some ARCs? Being honest because I found them in my favorite used bookstore. There’s another Jacksonville-area person able to get ARCs and they apparently take some of them there for store credit, which I don’t mind at all because some of it is stuff I’d never get on my own. We can argue about the bookstore’s decision to put prices on them and put them on the shelves, but that’ll get us nowhere because it still happens.

However, someone who also goes to this bookstore had the bright idea to buy the ARCs from there and sell them on Ebay, which is worse than the bookstore selling them in my point of view. If I find a bunch there now, I grab what I can to read myself (as with Scorched, Untold, and Gated) or try to find them homes with bloggers who want them (as with Splendor and Hero).

Okay, done with the soapboxing. More books!

  1. There’s a used bookstore I love that sells ARCs and will take store credit for them. I traded some in there before I knew better, and if I found one in advance, I would buy it, so I get it. That’s a seriously awesome ARC haul, yowza.

    Also, Usagi, Earth Girl is AMAZING. Probably one of my faves for the year!

    • I used to trade in a lot of mine too when I couldn’t get rid of them any other way, but I’m not going to anymore. Not when I know some asshole might take it and put it on Ebay. 😡 My head is probably going to explode while I try to get all the ARCs read, but I’ll make sure I get to Rose Under Fire and one or two other books before that happens. Don’t want to lose out on the stuff I’ve been dying to get because I died of book overload!
