Stacking the Shelves: Week 51

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!)

So glad I finally got a chance to see this – it was AWESOME. And I’m glad Del Toro helped get the original short film into this great full-length feature. Really fun, and scary, too!


♡ Library/Swapped/Gifted/Bought/Etc:


Gifted by Christina of A Reader of Fictions (thank you, Christina!):

1. Famous Last Words by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

2. All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry


1. Defy the Dark edited by Saundra Mitchell

2. Star Cursed by Jessica Spotswood

  • True story: I got trapped in a car in the parking lot of the mall for an hour due to torrential rains with my copy of Born Wicked and my parents. While trapped in said car, we watched the waters rise due to backed-up drains. Cars that were low to the ground and parked near the drains? They’ve got water damage now. Whoops. But while trapped in the car, I finished up Born Wicked. Not two hours later, I left the mall’s bookstore with Star Cursed in hand. My review of Born Wicked is forthcoming.

  • I hope this doesn’t actually need saying for anyone, but no, that’s not the cover. That’s me messing around in Photoshop.


Prodigy by Marie Lu

  • I honestly didn’t like Legend that much, but I’ll likely be seeing Lu on tour for Champion in November if I can get my driver’s license within the next month, so I’ll give it another shot.

♡ DVDs/Others:

Does my first car count? I think it does. Naturally, it was christened with a trip to the bookstore at the mall, which is where the above-told story happened.
