Stacking the Shelves


Stacking The Shelves – hosted by Tynga’s Reviews,  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!

I've been SO good not buying books the last few months but I got out of control with the .99 and Freebie Kindle deals in the last few days of November. Honestly there were even more books than I listed here but I’ll feel overwhelmed if I say it (post it) out loud. At least when they are on the Kindle they aren’t taking up space and I can pretend I didn’t do it right? Denial is a beautiful thing!

Here’s what I got!
Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols – I have this book my Kndle already but it is one of my all time favorite books EVER and the paperback was on sale for $4.99 this week. I HAD to have it.

Love Story by Jennifer Echols – My friend Kimberly from Living Fictitiously went to a Jennifer Echols signing and got me a copy of Love Story – signed by Jennifer!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Kimberly! *hugs book* *hugs Kimberly*

Confession (Curio #5) by Cara McKenna – I love this series and this was the BIG reveal! I was a tad disappointed in this vignette but still enjoyed it. You can read my Goodreads review here.

Shadow's Claim by Kresley Cole – My Goodreads review (WARNING! there are spoilers)

Losing It by Cora Carmack – I finished this one last night and it’s another fun addition to the New Adult genre. A little sexier than YA but tamer than adult.

Not pictured:

Grease Monkey Jive by Ainslie Paton – I’m reading this one now. Odd title and it takes place in Australia so I’m totally confused by some of the sayings and words but it has a great slowly simmering romance that I'm loving so far. It takes place in the world of ballroom dance competitions. It’s something a little different and I’m enjoying it

Dangerous Voices by Rae Carson – Freebie short story
Offside (The Barker Triplets #1) by Juliana Stone
The Unloved by Jennifer Snyder

Lust for Life by Jeri Smith-Ready – The final book in the WVMP Vampire series. I’m so happy with how this series ended. Perfect. Read my review on Goodreads here.
I also picked up a few books for a Secret Santa exchange which I obviously can’t tell you about Smile
What did you get this week?


  1. Great haul of books. I've been reading some more New Adult books as well. Losing it by Cara Cormack seems interesting.


  2. Aww, that's so nice of your friend to get you a signed book! Lucky you!

  3. Great haul! I've only read Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols, but it was amazing and I can't wait to read more by her. x]
    Happy reading! ^.^

    My Haul

  4. Great haul of books and I should something to friends anyway LOL I need to read more of Jennifer Books

  5. Aw, that's so sweet your friend got you a signed copy from Jennifer Echols! 99 cents is awfully hard to resist, hope you enjoy your books. <3

  6. I've been debting with myself whether I should get Echols' books. Might get them for the summer :)

    Happy reading!

    My books this week.

  7. Going Too Far! I really liked that one and wow, that price was awesome! I thought Losing It was a great New Adult read too. I hope you enjoy! :)

    You can see what I got this week here!

  8. Haha, I ca see what you mean, Karen! Still you were very conservative comparing to my binge plus you are going to enjoy all these, I can see; they are not just random downloads. Enjoy!

  9. Book bans are really hard to stick to, but love your rationale that ebooks don't count since you can't see them and they don't take up any room. Makes sense to me! Happy reading!

  10. Aww, Lust for Life. I'm happy and sad about this one. I bought Going Too Far and another Echols book b/c of your tweet. And I adored Losing It.
    Happy Reading!

  11. $4.99? How did I miss that deal? And that's so sweet of your friend do get you that book because it seems like you're a pretty big fan! (: And the 99 cent sales are so hard to resist, so I completely get that.

    My StS

  12. OMG I just LOVE Jennifer Echols. She's one of my top favorite authors and Going Too Far is just AMAZING. :D
    I've also been meaning to try Losing It for a long time too. Looking forward to that review!
