Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.
As I mentioned in my Sunday Post last week, after a month of no book buying I’m free to hoard … *cough* sorry, BUY books again to my little hearts content! I learned my lesson, a ban will never happen again. I’ve gone months and months without buying one single book before, but the minute I decide “no books for 30 days,” naturally, this makes me want to buy ALL the books!
So, onto the haul!

ARC’s for Review
Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
Waterfall by Lauren Kate
Thank you to both publishers!
Earlier this week, both Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph were on NetGalley as Read Now, and I jumped at the chance to read Dark Triumph! I read Grave Mercy a few weeks back, and I absolutely loved it and I can’t wait to read Sybella’s story. Waterfall is book two in the Teardrop series by Lauren Kate. While I didn’t love Teardrop, I’m curious to see how the story develops.
Spiders by Tom Hoyle
Thanks Pan Macmillan/Goodreads!
I entered a giveaway on Goodreads for Spiders, and I didn't think too much of it again – until the DHL van showed up outside the door a few days ago. How seasonally perfect is this cover?? Both Thirteen and Spiders look absolutely amazing in person. I read Thirteen at the beginning of the year and it’ll be interesting to see what happens to Adam and all the other characters.
Those blobs that look like tiny dots? Well, you guessed it! Yes, they're dozens and dozens of tiny spiders on the page edges! The top edge is the same. Erm, this probably would not be the best book to get someone as a gift if they are scared of spiders. Unless you didn't like the person... or they got you a horrible present in the past. Then it could be classed as payback... Not that I would encourage such behaviour or anything!
Books I Bought
All four of these books are second hands - yep, I can be economical when I try – so I don’t feel too guilty about the other *cough*13 books I ordered yesterday…
And yes, Splintered, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire and Boundless are amongst those 13 books… FINALLY!
Anyhoo! I’ve heard so many awesome things about the Gallagher Girls series, and I thought it’s about time I give it a chance. I don’t know if I’m the only one that does this, but, I usually have a mental list of “maybe” books. You know, those books that you’d read if you got them for a good deal, or on sale or second hand or something like that? Well, Wither was on my maybe list, and I found it for a little under €2.
I read Glass Houses before the summer, and I’m not a hundred percent sure I want to commit to the entire series at this stage. As far as I know, The Morganville Vampire series is fourteen or fifteen books long with loads of novellas attached as well. With long series, I usually have a good idea around the book three in the series if I want to continue on. When I found The Dead Girls Dance and Midnight Alley second hand, I thought perfect opportunity!
That’s my haul... for now! What books did you get this week? Leave a link to your StS post in the comments if you like.
Have a great weekend, and Happy Reading!
