Stacking the Shelves (9)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which bloggers share the books they stacked their shelves with during the week!

So, I haven't posted a Stacking the Shelves in a few weeks because I surprisingly stuck to my book ban! Not a single book was bought, and I didn't even get a library book (cue the fist pump). This week was a bit different though. Last Sunday, I met up with the Ottawa Blogger gals for lunch and book talk. It was tons of fun, as it always is with them, and we had a big, very polite (we can never just say "I want this book!"), book exchange. I got some books I've been desperate for, and a couple I'm really interested in reading. I also got some epic Team Kilt swag this week so without further ado:

- Thirteen (Women of the Otherworld #13) by Kelley Armstrong (this cover is like tissue paper. Gorgeous, but so thin! I'm afraid it will rip!)

Borrowed/Received (Blogger Meet-Up):
- (ARC) Possession (Possession #1) by Elana Johnson
- (ARC) Surrender (Possession #2) by Elana Johnson
- (ARC) Eve (Eve #1) by Anna Carey
- (ARC) The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater (I am so BEYOND excited for this one!)
- (ARC) Winter Town by Stephen Emond
- (ARC) Fated (Soul Seekers #1) by Alyson Noel
- Iron Daughter (Iron Fey #2) by Julie Kagawa
- Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth (I actually own this novel already but due to some friends of mine, my copy is pretty messed up. And since fellow blogger Kathy had an extra copy she graciously offered me it! Thanks!)

- Team Kilt membership swag from the awesome Jeri Smith-Ready! I love it! Thanks so much, Jeri!

That's it for this week! Probably won't have another Stacking the Shelves for a couple weeks but it might be a big one since it's my birthday on the 12th! What did you stack your shelves with this week?

  1. Funny you should mention Raven Boys as my review of that will go up on my blog this upcoming week. I like the fact that you have blogger meetups in Canada. Nice job.

  8. Nice haul. We should do blogger meets here in Florida. :-/ New follower

    1. Thanks for following!! And blogger meet ups are so fun! Great way to connect with awesome people!

  9. You're welcome for Insurgent, I am just glad you got another copy. Ripped books make me sad.

    Enjoy Raven Boys! Excited to hear what you think.

    See you at the next meet up!

  10. Oooooohhhh.... Possession an Surrender! I just recently read them and loved them! And jealous about Thirteen! I am waiting for the Canadian paperback to come out- so I'll be waiting a while... :/

    And Ottawa blogger peeps?!? Too bad us London bloggers don't live closer, we could have had a GIGANTIC meet-up!

  11. We do the same thing in Toronto. Whenever we meet up we always have these big bags of books and we all swap titles. So much fun!

  12. Nice haul! I love having bookish friends to swap books with! It makes it that much better!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my StS, and I'm sorry it took me so long to respond! Have a great day and Happy Birthday a little early! :D

  13. Yay Team Kilt!

    Also totally agree re: the cover of 13. I was looking at it at Costco and there were already a couple in the store there where the dust jacket was ripped. :S


Thanks for stopping by! I love myself some comments so if you have one feel free to add it! Hope you have an awesomely book-filled day!
