Stacking the Shelves (7)

Hello fellow book lovers! I'm here today to bring you my Stacking the Shelves! :) 

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga over at Tynga's Reviews. StS allows bloggers alike to share what books they bought/borrowed/received over the past week.

Here's how you can go about making your own STS:
  • Create your own Stacking The Shelves post. You can use my official graphic or your own, but please link back to Tynga’s Reviews so more people can join the fun! 
  • You can set your post any way you want, simple book list, covers, pictures, vlog, sky is the limit! 
  • I am posting Stacking The Shelves on Saturdays, but feel free to post yours any day that fits you
  • Visit Tynga’s Reviews on Saturday and add your link so others can visit you!
  • Visit other participants link to find out what they added to their shelves!

Here are the books that I have received over the past week:

The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Elemental by Antony John
 The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
Black City by Elizabeth Richards
False Memory  by Dan Krokos
Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
Scent of Magic by Maria V. Snyder

The only book I legitimately received as a gift this year for Christmas was A Million Suns by Beth Revis, which my mom got for me. :D (Love you, Mom!) All of the other ones were basically a Christmas gift from me to me. :3 I thought I'd deserved it. ;D

I'm just so excited to start reading every single one of these books! Have you guys ever gotten so swept up with the excitement of a book(s) that you just find yourself staring at them all and not actually reading anything? I find I do it all the time...

But anyways! What did you guys receive this week in books? :D Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas?! I got an old-school refurbished Macbook! :D So hopefully I'll be able to start up that YouTube channel that I've been mentioning for a while sometime soon... I'll give more details on that later!

Happy Reading!


  1. Oh a lot of beautiful covers, enjoy them all! happy reading!

    here is mine

  2. Meant to Be sounds wonderful. I've read False Memory, really enjoyed it. I hope you like all the books. :)

  3. My co-blogger says that False Memory is good, so we hope you enjoy that one as well as all your other books. Happy reading!

  4. So many epically awesome books! I loved A Million Suns to pieces, but I'm not loving the new cover =/ False Memory sounds awesome. I think I have that one somewhere on my Kindle... Meant To Be was fantastic, and Black City is one of my top favs of the year! Hope you enjoy all that you got! Happy New Year and happy reading!

    What we got this week!

    1. You're making me so much more excited to read them! Actually, it' because of the cover change that I even picked up Across the Universe :P The cover looks a lot better in person, cause I didn't like the change of the series at first either. I'm reading Meant To Be right now! I have a feeling it's going to be something I have to warm up to, though... Maybe I'll read Black City next!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Amazing haul! I still have to get my hands on a copy of A Million Suns. I've been hearing super amazing things about The Darkest Minds lately, so hopefully I'll be able to read it soon enough. I hope you enjoy all your books and that you had a happy holiday!

    1. Thanks! Darkest Minds is one of the ones that I'm super excited for! :D It's great that it not only SOUNDS amazing, but is also getting so many great reviews! Although, I didn't realize how large it would be when I ordered it! Not that I'm complaining. :D More awesome to go around!

  6. Great gifts to you from you :) I also do that with new books-stare at them longer than it would take me to read them.
    I absolutely love Beth Revis, and I can't wait for Shades of Earth. Almost here!
    Happy holidays and happy reading!
    Ivana @ Willing to See Less

    1. Haha, thanks! :D It was really great of me to do that. :P Finally! Someone else that I can share my book woes with! lol

      I can't wait for Shades of Earth either! (Even though I haven't even started A Million Suns yet...)

      Thanks for stopping by! :D

  7. Meant to be was so good. Black City looks so good. I got the percy Jackson series recently and I can't wait to finish them and move on to Rick Riordan's new series. Happy Reading :) New Follower
