Stacking the Shelves (12)

"Stacking the Shelves" is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where bloggers can share the latest books they've received and discover new titles while visiting other blogs.

It's been a while since I did a STS post, mostly because of being on vacation, and also because of being lazy. ;) So here's what I can remember receiving over the past month or so...


(Sorry this is massively blurry; I already had the books put away when I looked at the pic, and well... see above re: lazy)

- The Girl of Fire & Thorns (#1) by Rae Carson (My Review)
- The Crown of Embers (#2) by Rae Carson
- Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (My Review)
- Amplified by Tara Kelly (My Review)
- Such A Rush by Jennifer Echols (My Review)
- Soulbound by Heather Brewer

- Simply Irresistible by Jill Shavis
- Destroy Me (Shatter Me #1.5) by Taherah Mafi
- Decked With Holly by Marni Bates (My Review)
- Losing It by Cora Carmack (My Review)

1) Darkhouse
2) Red Fox
2.5) The Benson
3) Dead Sky Morning
4) Lying Season
5) On Demon Wings
5.5) Old Blood

These were all free or 99 cents on Kindle, and I scooped them up based on Kristilyn's recommendation. I ended up reading them all super quickly, and I have to agree that they are pretty fab (they keep getting better, too!). Check here to see if they're still on sale.

  1. Wow! Great stuff. Girl of Fire and Thorns AND Throne of Glass -- two of my recent favs. Loved The Diviners too. Enjoy!

  2. WOW! So many awesome books, Ashley!! I'm soooo happy that you loved the Experiment in Terror series! I am ALWAYS here to encourage people to buy books. :)

    I've heard great things about What Happens Next! I wasn't a huge fan of The Casual Vacancy (it was a DNF for me), but I do look forward to seeing what you thought of it.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I'm definitely curious about Casual Vacancy... I haven't been brave enough to pick it up yet! I have a feeling I'll either love it or hate it. :S

  3. WOW! That's a lot of books! I would have to say my favorites out of that haul would the Girl of Fire and Thorns books! They're so awesome and I'm just itching for the third book! Awesome books this week :) Check out my STS:

  4. What a post! I know it's been a month but...still :) I will have to check out the Experiment in Terror series to see if they are still free/cheap. Also I'll have to read the summary for Decked With Holly. I'm looking for a good Christmas book for upcoming reads! Oh also, so jealous of your library sale. Have fun reading all those books!

    1. Decked With Holly was so cute and I enjoyed it quite a bit, but it's weird how it actually wasn't that Christmas-y of a book, considering the cover.

  5. WOW!I LOVED The Raven Boys too! So jealous you have a signed copy. And you have Breaking Point!!!! EEP! I'm so excited for that sequel! I hope you enjoy all of these amazing books! :)

    1. Breaking Point was FAB! Hope you'll get an early copy of it. =)

  6. Holy moly you're going to be busy! I hope you enjoy Crown of Embers! I can't wait to read that one!

    1. I read Crown of Embers when I was in Florida and I LOVED it.

  7. I got Abandon at a library sale too! Also, The Lost Girl looks really cool — and I've heard so many good things about Throne of Glass. Hope you enjoy all those books! :)

    1. The Lost Girl was really interesting! I'm so surprised that there hasn't been more buzz about it.

  8. What a fantastic book haul!! I can't wait to read to my copy of Throne of Glass. Sounds like a really epic new world of adventures. And Such a Rush is also on my wishlist. Enjoy your new books :) x


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment; I appreciate each one!
