Stacking the Shelves #8: August 30, 2014

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted my Tynga’s Reviews where we showcase the books that we have bought, borrowed, or were sent by publishers every week. My week was a little crazy so I divided things up a lot to make it easier. Here is what I got. 
The Sherlock Holmes Handbook by Ransom Riggs (Sent by Quirk Books)
The Jane Austen Handbook by Margaret C. Sullivan (Sent by Quirk Books)
The Lost by Sarah Beth Durst (Sent by publisher)
The Goddess Test (Traded on YABE)
Firebug by Lish McBride (Sent by Reading Teen)
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood (Traded on YABE)
Chain of Evil by Dr. Michael R. Collings (Sent by publisher through LibraryThing)

It was a very big haul this week and my shelves are overflowing. As such, I put a bunch of books up for trade on YABE so if you have books you are ready to part with, head on over and trade with me.

    • I've heard really good things too, and I adore the older cover that I got. This is my second copy of Anna, I have the old cover too, but I still haven't read it. Whoops. 🙂

    • This is my second copy of Scarlet, the first one was badly damaged so I got a replacement. I've been excited for Stormdancer for a while, I was just waiting to go onto bargain. Thanks for visiting!

  1. I LOVED Eon (and Eona), Scarlet (though not Lady Thief), The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, and mostly enjoyed Born Wicked. Never finished the series though. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous weekend 🙂

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  2. Ooh, you got A LOT of amazing books this week! Good luck with deciding which one to read first out of all that awesomeness…lol!

    Thanks for stopping by my STS @ Addicted Readers! 🙂

  3. Woah! That's a lot of books! The ones from Quirk look like fun. Ooh, and I hope you love Born Wicked! I'm glad you got the hardcover, because it's just so darn pretty. The redesign isn't awful, but it can't compare to the original. Oh my gosh, the Hobbit stuff! That's so cool! I hope you have a great week, Erin!

    • You're telling me. The Quirk books were awesome, definitely check them out! I think I'm one of the few who love that old cover, I'm glad you like it too. Stop by around Sept. 22 if you're interested in Hobbit stuff.

  4. Oh goodness – I cannot say enough good things about The Goddess Test and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer! I binged on The Goddess Test series and I really wanted to start the second Mara Dyer novel but I'm holding off because the third comes out in November and I've heard the second ended in a whopper!

    I want to read Anna and the French Kiss too – went to the bookstore last week and they were completely sold out. I was so annoyed! Happy for the author, annoyed for me!

    Great haul!
    Andrea @ Bookish

    • I need to get the rest of bot of those series because I love to marathon a whole set at once. Waiting for these November releases is painful! For me it's Mortal Heart that I'm dying to have.

      I need to get the matching Lola too, that would be nice.

      Thanks for visiting!
