Stacking the Shelves & Week in Review 1/31/15

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's about sharing what I've added to my shelves this week.

Well, last week was very productive. This week, not so much. I didn't read as much as I wanted to and I didn't review as much. Next week I have a lot more planned for reviews, so hopefully I can get myself properly motivated by then. Right now, I'm just feeling cold and tired of winter. I think I have the winter blahs. And my hands are frozen. And I don't ever want to come out from under this blanket but I have to because I have to work. Blah. Well, at least I have books. Books are good.

So, here is what I've added to my shelves this week:


Uninvited by Sophie Jordan
Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer
Vitro (Corpus #2) by Jessica Khoury
The Forgetting by Nicole Maggi

  1. So many books! I'm so desperate to read The Sin Eater's Daughter! The cover is gorgeous and it sounds fantastic. I can't wait to hear what you think about it. I wish it was winter here! I'm so sick of dying from the heat haha. Hopefully you get to read more this week :)

    1. I'll probably start The Sin Eater's Daughter as soon as I'm done reading the two books I'm in the middle of. I'm so excited!

  2. Great books this week! I am dying to read Vendetta…one of my most highly anticipated reads for 2015. I hope it doesn't disappoint. Enjoy all of your books!

  3. OOoh nice! Feeling the ARC Envy over Get Dirty! I was rejected for that, plus two others the same day I requested. I swear EW hates me! LOL!

    Incredible reads though! I LOVED Uninvited and Cress! Hope you enjoy all your amazing new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I'll stop by tomorrow to see your haul! I'm auto-approved for most everything on EW because I'm a bookseller and we order stuff for the store. I have to request a few things though. I waited FOREVER for The Sin Eater's Daughter. I almost passed out when I got that one. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Wow, great haul this week! I loved Uninvited and cannot wait for the next one! I get to see Sophie at the end of February. I love her! Lots of ARCs!!! I put in a for a few but haven't heard anything yet. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. I've wanted to read Uninvited for a while. It's new in paperback this week so I finally picked it up. I can't wait to read it! A lot of the ARCs I requested a while ago and gave up on but the approval just came through on Friday. I didn't think I'd get The Sin Eater's Daughter because I requested it so long ago and hadn't heard anything. It appears I have a lot of reading to do!

  5. Oh I know how you feel, wish I could bundle up under my blankets and never leave! I really loved Uninvited by Sophie Jordan, just got my hands on the sequel and I can't wait to finally read it. I'm very excited to read The Sin Eater's Daughter as well, it looks so good.

  6. You got some great books. There are a few books here that I need to get. I hope you love all of them. I totally understand wanting to get under the covers.

    Grace @ Books of Love

  7. Yay you got approved for Vendetta! Can't wait to hear your thoughts and enjoy all your goodies~

  8. Ohh gosh, so many awesome books! I need to get my hands on Cress, and soon! I loved the first two, and with Fairest released, I need to give in and read Cress :) And The Sin Eaters Daughter, I can't wait to read it :D Hope you love all your new books!

    Alma @ Journey Through Fiction

  9. I'm very jealous that you got Sin Eater's Daughter, Get Dirty, and Resonance! Uninvited and Vitro were good books and, of course, Cress is amazing (don't know if you've already read these books or not). Anyway, looks like you got a lot of reading material!

  10. That's a ot of books yoi have there and i guess it's pretty awesome that you're auto-approved for ew

  11. Whoa, there are so many books! I don't know how you're going to find the time to read them all but good luck, lol. I'm reading Crash right now and it's awesome! I didn't really like the other two, but Crash is definitely meeting my expectations! <3

    I'm also waiting for Sweet. I requested on NG and I'm still praying so there's that haha.

  12. I have the Sin Eater's Daughter and Sweet. Both sound great. I've read Woven and enjoyed it. Hope you enjoy them all. Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Ahhh, Uninvited was pretty great! I didn't like The Sin Eater's Daughter though - I'm one of the few :/ I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous week :)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  14. I saw the paperback of Vitro when I was working at the bookstore today and almost grabbed it! I need to read on in that series. Loved Uninvited. You've got a lot of the egalleys I'm getting lately as well. Thanks for stopping by my STS earlier! Great haul this week!

  15. Sin Eater's Daughter, how I want you!

    And good timing getting Uninvited, I think Unleashed comes out this month!

  16. Need to get my hands on Vitro!! Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by :)

  17. Whoa, very nice haul! I am reading The Sin Eater's Daughter right now, but I am not far enough in to have a real opinion. I still need to read Origin and Uninvited, I am so behind! I also really want to read Vendetta and Sisters of Blood and Spirit. Hope you enjoy all the lovely new additions :)

  18. Great haul! Racing Hearts is on my wishlist.
    Hope you enjoy all your new books.

  19. Great haul of books! Can't wait to see what you think of The Sin Eater's Daughter and When My Heart Was Wicked, love the covers on both of those!

    Enjoy your new books and happy reading :)

    1. I actually just started reading When My Heart Was Wicked. Thanks for stopping by!

  20. I enjoyed Uninvited. The romance wasn't my fave, but I liked the premise behind the story a lot. Happy reading!

  21. I absolutely loved Cress. It's my favorite of the series so far, even though I already have a feeling that Winter will take over that position. Enjoy them all!

  22. Awesome books you have here! :) And some of them I added on my tbr too. Happy reading and hope you'll enjoy them all.
