Stacking the Shelves (Mega Haul!) and Week In Review 1/17/15

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, well, well, the book fairies have been extremely nice to me this week! Not only did I use up most of my remaining Christmas money on some great books, but my Book Outlet order finally arrived this week. I got seven books from the Book Outlet, five of them hardcovers, for less than $30 including shipping. Sweet! Oh, but that's not all. I got some unbelievably AWESOME books from Edelweiss this week. Some of them just became available, others I had requested a while ago (before the holidays) and was just approved for. I have so many new books to read, I don't even know where to start!

I wish I could have posted more this week, but my son was sick and I had to take care of him. Everyone else in my house is getting sick now, too (including me). Ugh. 

What did you add to your shelves this week?

  1. OOoh very nice! Very mega indeed too! Great titles here! Only one I've read is All Fall Down and it was definitely an exciting read! I still need to start Gray's books!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. WOW. An amazing assortment of books this week. You are going to be very busy indeed.

    Grace @ Books of Love

  3. Jeez! Lots of books! I loved The Darkest Part of the Forest, Frozen, Chantress Alchemy, Seeker. I have Ember... but I really want Wrath, Jubilee Manor, and Deep Sea! I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

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

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  4. Oh Wow that is definitely a Mega Haul!
    There are so many great books here I don't
    even know where to begin!
    I hope you enjoy all these wonderful reads

    My STS

    1. Holy smokes! Your haul was bigger than mine! Good stuff!

  5. So many pretty books. I wouldn't know where to begin! I hope you enjoy these books. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  6. Many many many pretties! Seeing so many I want to read. Especially An Ember in the Ashes! Want it so badly!

    Happy Reading!

  7. I got Never Never too! Ahh, so jealous of Plus One and All Fall Down! The Ghosts of Heaven sounds so interesting! Happy reading :)
    Kim @ Divergent Gryffindor

  8. Ooooooo! So many! I honestly don't know where to begin! The Nightmare Dilemma, Steadfast, Daughter of Deep Silence, An Ember of the Ashes, Wrath & Dawn, Jubilee Manor, Burn, The Storyspinner, Chantress Alchemy, All Fall Down, Ghosts of Haven, and Darkest Part of the Forest are all books on my TBR list! Wow! You got a lot of books! I hope you enjoy them!
    Speaking of Book Outlet, I finally made an account today after seeing so many Stacking the Shelves with Book Outlet hauls. I must resist buying anything...
    Also, you're post makes me tempted to actually request something from Edelweiss. (Something I've never done before)

    1. Go for it! It can't hurt to try request things. Book Outlet is dangerous but at least you get a lot for your money. It takes a few weeks to get things but it's worth it. I really have no idea where to start with all the books I got. I'll figure it out :) Thanks for stopping by!

  9. These books are all so new to me! I'm gonna add this to my to be read list for sure! :)

  10. ohmy, so many great books! I've been hoping to get my hands on The Testing, Half Bad, Taken (definitely need that before Frozen), and Spellcaster (need for Steadfast!!). I've read good things about Never Never sooo I'm thinking of getting that as well although I'm not an NA reader.
    aand awesome eARCs! I definitely can't wait to read many of those (and I'm checking out a few that I just saw).
    Happy Reading!

  11. Wow! Awesome books! I am dying over Sarah Dessen's latest…can't wait to read that one! I also am intrigued by the Uninvited and The Wrath and the Dawn. An Ember in the Ashes sounds awesome too--been getting a lot of hype! I hope your son feels better and you stay healthy. My whole house was sick a few weeks ago…it stinks! Happy reading!

  12. Holly Black is a great author, love her books! Happy reading :)

  13. Yay, book hauls!!! You are stacked :)

    I really like Darkest Part of the Forest and Never, Never. I've been wanting to read The Ghosts of Heaven. Happy reading!

  14. Pretty pretty books! I'm excited for The Darkest Part of the Forest! I really want to read it :D

  15. The Wrath and the Dawn is showing up on Netgalley, but you can't request it. So since you said you got it from Edelweiss, I just went and found it and requested it! Fingers crossed! Great haul this week.
    Check out my STS

  16. WHOA what an amazing haul! I may cry you have so many amazing books! The Wrath and the Dawn AND An Ember in the Ashes?! I can't. I requested The Wrath and the Dawn awhile back and am in EW purgatory, which I hate. And All Fall Down and Ghosts of Heaven! I want both of those VERY badly!! I also requested Jubilee Manor, but again, purgatory ;) I hope you enjoy all of your lovely additions!!

    1. Don't lose hope for The Wrath and the Dawn. I requested it a long time ago (I actually forgot I did because it took so long) and was just approved. The same with An Ember in the Ashes. I was kind of surprised by everything I got this week, I'm a little overwhelmed. Next week should be a lot smaller, which is good since I have plenty to read already!

  17. SO MANY BOOKS! :) I almost ordered ONE on my order, too!

  18. What an amazing haul. So many great books. I really enjoy Colleen Hoover's writing so I'll be adding Never Never to my shelf too.

    Hope your week has kicked off to a good start.

  19. That is one big haul! o.O I loved Darkest Part of the Forest, hope you get around to reading it soon! The Storyspinner looks really good, too. I read Amy Plum's books earlier this month and really enjoyed them :)
    Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by!
