Stacking the Shelves (11) - The one that broke our book buying ban

Meme Hosted by Tynga's Reviews




Review books
We would like to thank Kensington Teen as well as Penguin for the review books. Touched and A Touch of Scarlet were great while Farah really enjoyed Othermoon. Juhina is SO excited for The 5th Wave! (have you seen that awesome survival kit?!) 

Bought books
We went a little bit crazy the past week and bought a ton of books. It did help that most of these books were only 6 dollars! Juhina is so happy to have finally gotten The Crown of Embers, Breathe, The Lost Girl, and Endlessly, while Farah is dying to finally pick up Sweet Shadows and start The Body Finder series! Of course we can't forget Clockwork Princess!!! (Farah is reading it right now and loving it!)

Library books
Juhina is planning on finishing up a couple of the series she started (she just finished the Delirium trilogy!) so we got Hallowed by Cynthia Hand (Juhina is reading it now!) We also got Graceling because we only heard good things about it. Deb Caletti's book also looks like a great contemporary! 




Digital galleys

We received a ton of amazing titles from Edelweiss & Netgalley from Harper Collins, HBG Canada, Kensington Teen, and others. Juhina is most excited about Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols while Farah is most excited about Breathless by Brigid Kemmerer!

  4. I really want The 5th Wave!! And the survival kit is awesome. I bought Clockwork Princess too, I actually bought two copies, the pb and an ebook as it didn't release in Ireland until a day later and I just couldn't wait. I hope you both enjoy it. Happy Reading ladies :)

  7. Crown of Embers, Shadow and Bone, The Lost Girl, and Graceling are some of my all-time favorites, so I hope you wind up loving them! I've heard a lot about The 5th Wave, so I'm curious to see what you'll think, and I recently finished Wild Awake and enjoyed it. It's very different, but in a good way. Happy Reading!(:

  9. Clockwork Princess is absolutely brilliant! A great ending even if the epilogue kinda spoils it. Crown of Embers is a brilliant addition to the Fire and Thorns Series. Oh and Shadow and Bone that is one of my all time favourite reads ever!

    My Haul! Letterbox Love!

  10. WOW! What awesome books! I was offered a copy of The 5th Wave but I had to decline it - sad times! :( I really want to read The Crown of Embers, Breathe, Shadow and Bone and The Lost Girl. I need to read Clockwork Prince soon so I can move onto Clockwork Princess, I love that series :)

    Happy reading!

  11. I am reading a lot of library books lately too. I think you both are doing well on your bans and at least you bought from bookcloseouts so you got more for your money. Great books!

  12. I watched your video earlier today and have to say I prefer it when it's longer and you guys actually get the chance to talk a bit about each book. I love to hear what you have to say, what you have heard and what you expect about each and every one of them, even if it takes a few more minutes. :)

    Great books you got this week. The 5th Wave sounds amazing can't wait to read your thoughts on it.

  15. Oh wow this is one awesome haul, I would have totally broken my book ban too for some of those pretty hardbacks and some were only $6? I would have totally snatched them up too! I can't wait to see what you think of The Lost Girl and Shadow and Bone, they were two of my favourite reads this year! I hope you enjoy the rest of your books too! :)

  19. Wow great haul, lucky you. I am currently on a book borrowing and buying ban until I finish my massive TBR pile. Which includes Breathe and Clockwork Angel. I also recieved Through to you as we'll and I can't wait to read it. Happy Reading :D

  20. Wow you ladies broke your book buying ban with a vengeance, eh? lol So many great books, I don't know where to begin! I'm glad you said where you got the books on sale because I was going to ask. I love that site, although I haven't ordered from there for awhile. I spent a small fortune at the beginning of the year and then have tried to stay off the site since lol.
    You're so lucky you won Insignia! I don't think I'd heard of it until week before last when the girls mentioned it on Tea Time and then I added it to my tbr.
