Stacking the Shelves (84)

Stacking the Shelves
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where you showcase all of the books you received for the week, whether it be physical or electronic books!

Hi 🙂 It’s been a long time it seems since I’ve been on the blog because my mother was visiting and I’ve just had no time to sit down and comment so I’ve been spending yesterday evening and will be today as well, playing catch up 🙂 I don’t have a lot of interesting things to say other than the visiting of my mother so I will just hop right into the book haul!

I got SOOO many books these last couple of weeks. My sister sent up several books with my mother, because she doesn’t often keep her books after she has read them a few times, there was a used book sale by my house which amazing great prizes and I went to Costco! All in all… a ton of books 😛 I was very excited about the used book sale because it happens every year, and it’s incredibly close to my house… plus I couldn’t believe the prices on these books AND for the most part they were in fantastic condition. I spent a good two hours there, but you could have easily spend the day… SO many books there. Luckily I wasn’t going with mysteries in my mind or I would have been there for much longer, there was probably 4 tables alone with just mystery novels!

Anyhow… onto the books 😛

The Burn for Burn trilogy was at Costco and I was thrilled! I was planning on buying Ashes to Ashes because I’m itching to finish this series, but I hadn’t owned the previous two as I read the egalleys. Obviously that meant that I had to buy the entire set, so I was pumped to see the whole set at Costco for 32.00, massive savings there because they are all hardback 🙂

I read both Little White Lies and Lucky, but my sister was getting rid of them so this new home they came to! I love the It Girl series, so I’m planning on buying the entire set anyways so this makes it one easier! Nineteen Minutes has been on my wish list for a while. I’m not the biggest Jodi Picoult fan but this sounds really intriguing. I still haven’t read a Sarah Dessen book, although I own Just Listen, so my sister handed over three others she had. I’m really looking forward to finally reading her books!

I need to read in completion and own both the Emily of New Moon and Anne of Green Gables sets so when I seen these two at the used book sale, I figured why not. Two less that I have to buy! I watched the movie Interview with the Vampire years ago, and really liked it so I grabbed this. I’m not sure how I will fair out with it but I am on a massive paranormal kick right now so this one might be up soon! Notorious is another book in the It Girl series so that was a fantastic find.

The House I Loved is one I’ve been meaning to pick up for a while. I love Tatiana de Rosnay’s books, they are amazing so I couldn’t believe that someone had this at the sale! I picked up a few romances which is surprising but I was really feeling for romance when I was there so I picked up a few titles. I haven’t read Sherryl Woods, but I’ve heard good things about her books so I grabbed Sand Castle Bay as it’s the first in a series. Also, Animal Instincts was an interesting find but Gena Showalter is so raved about I figured this will be a win!

I was THRILLED to find A Great and Terrible Beauty and Rebel Angels! I started the first book, and really enjoyed it, but I had to return it to the library and just haven’t gotten around to renewing it. Now I have no excuse to not finish it! An Amish Christmas immediately caught my eye because as I’ve said before, I love Amish fiction. This will definitely be on my Christmas reading list!

I haven’t read any of the Gossip Girl books, but obviously I loved the show and I had planned on buying them all to read so when I seen a bunch at the sale I had to pick them up, they were only 50 cents a piece! I grabbed six from the series as well as one of The Carlyles books! YAY! Blue Bloods is a series I have no idea why I haven’t started. it was on my the first YA series I added on Goodreads when I first became interested in YA and i still haven’t picked it up!

Confessions of a Shopaholic I have already read but somehow in my move to Ontario, I lost the first book 🙁 It was in fantastic condition and this is the version I previously had (and that matches my others) so I had to. Silver Bells just sounded like a lovely Christmas read and I have read several of Luanne Rice’s other books and enjoyed them. Ten Tiny Breaths I was PUMPED to find. I have been meaning to read this for ages and just haven’t so win! And The Way the Crow Flies was probably one of my favorite finds! This one perfectly matches my Before I Fall edition, which I was having a hard time finding in store and there it was at the sale!!!

    HOORAY for all the Dessen books!!! I loved Someone Like You and Along for the Ride – they were so sweet and just perfect <3 Ten Tiny Breaths is AMAZING. And I'm now thinking I need to run to Costco to get the Burn for Burn trilogy – my sister loves Jenny Han and I've been thinking of getting those for her anyway. Uber savings just makes it better 😉

    The Way the Crow Flies!!!!!!!! I don’t need to say any more ;). Nineteen Minutes is my favourite of Jodi Picoult’s books and I sobbed like a baby while reading it……….on a ferry in public! A little old lady offered me Kleenex and chocolate while I sniffled. It was a tad embarrassing 😉

    I love Sarah Dessen and I hope you do too! I saw that you added the Gossip a Girl books on Goodreads, but didnt realize you’d just bought them all — I understand now! They’re such guilty pleasure reads, just like the It Girl books 🙂

    Um, I think I need to get a CostCo membership ASAP. That Burn For Burn trilogy looks glorious ! I’ve recently read both of those Dessen books and they are both good reads.
