Stacking the Shelves (71)

Posted by

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews featuring the books we got this week, and I also mention blog news/happenings of the past week.

Hey pals! Sorry for no STS last week. I passed out at like 8 o’clock and didn’t wake up until morning so I figured my big haul of a whopping 1 book could wait. We are now officially in fall! I’m excited for Halloween already! I get to trick-or-treat again with my lil one woot! So yeah, I added a new division to my tour site to adult and erotica books. If you read those genres and you want to sign-up head over to Xpresso Book Tours: After Dark. It won’t be taking on as many tours as XBT but there are some really good adult and erotica reads out there so I would like to give touring them a try and see how it goes.

I received for review:
STS4 The Returned STS6
Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray

*Big thanks to Spencer Hill Press, Hachette Book Group Canada, Audible (LWC), Disney Book Group, Simon Pulse, and HarperCollins for these pretties!*

Also, I got this amazing gift basket from Kobo that had me completely freaking out over the awesome! A HUGE thanks to the fantastic people at Kobo! I’ve been reading on it for a week and loving it. Also, funnily, I’m about to pop the popcorn right after this post to catch up on Grey’s Anatomy! >.< Oh and you can win your very own Kobo Aura here! 😉


Have a fab week! 🙂

Don’t forget to link me to your book haul!

    Nice. I really like the Kobo package you got. That package is awesome. I see lots of awesome in your haul this week. Sea of Shadows looks awesome. Heard good things about The Returned. The Bone Season really was excellent.


  2. Richa

    I got Sea of Shadows this week too! So excited for it. And I’m really looking forward to Afterparty and The Dollhouse Asylum.
    Congrats on the Kobo, it’s amazing 🙂

    My haul

    I got Sea of Shadows this week too and it sounds so good! I’m so jealous that you have Afterparty and The Dollhouse Asylum. Happy reading, Giselle!

    That Grey’s episode was sooooo good. I loved it as usual. I’m glad you’re enjoying your new kobo:) Oh, and as always, great book haul. I can’t wait to read your thoughts on The Bone Season 🙂 Have a great Sunday, Giselle!

  5. Amy @ Book Loving Mom

    OMG that Kobo gift pack is amazing!! Ohh did you get the audio for Ask the Passengers or just the regular book? I listened to the audio and loved it. I never did review it though since it was just a me book and never fit in the review. Sea of Shadows sounds awesome… and Bone Season!!! Fabulous haul babe!! And yay! Almost Halloween!!!! My favorite holiday!

  6. Melanie (YA Midnight Reads)

    Oh The Bone Season is really good! The start is a little painful however it gets better so don’t let your impatient instincts get to you! I also got Sea of Shadows- I hope I love this more than her other series, but I still enjoyed that too.

    Have a fantastic week, Giselle! <33

  7. Eve @ ABH

    Ohmygod, I am so jealous of your gifted Kobo! Afterparty sounds like my kind of read- I’ll definitely look out for your review on that. Happy reading 🙂

  8. Kristilyn (Reading in Winter)

    Ask the Passengers! I’ve been wanting to read that one for a while. And yay for some Kelley Armstrong! 🙂

    Love the Kobo gift pack … that’s the same one I got! Haven’t popped my popcorn yet, though … I’m saving it for a rainy day.

    Have a good week!

  9. Shelly

    I read the Bone Season last week and I really enjoyed it and I hope you do too! Dollhouse Asylum sounds interesting so I can’t wait to see what you think. That gift basket from Kobo looks so amazing! I hope you have another good week! 🙂

  10. Kathy @ I Write, I Read, I Review

    Ooo, congrats on the Aura. 🙂 I’ve been looking into getting one of those. I want a full color e-reader (I love my kindle, but I want ‘both’) and being able to get it locally is appealing. Also, it’ll mean I have something that takes Mobi and ePub natively, which will help with formatting testing.

    Anyway, hope you have a great week. 😀

    The kobo aura is awesome! I mean, it’s awesome you got it for review! It looks like you got a lot of great books too! I hope you have a fantastic week!

  12. Jack

    I really want to get my hands on The Returned and The Bone Season. They look great! Ooh, and The Dollhouse Asylum sounds creepy. Great haul!

  13. Bonnie

    I am so looking forward to Sea of Shadows and Birthright sounds fantastic. Cate Tiernan is amazing so I’m all over that. Great haul, happy reading! And popcorn eating. 😀
