Stacking the Shelves, B-Day!! (32)

"Stacking the Shelves" is a weekly theme hosted by Tynga's reviews . Feel free to join in if you want. In this theme I showcase all the books I got this week.
It was my birthday Thursday!! I had a nice day and I got some pretty good books thanks to my mom, dad, and brother (thanks guys :D). A book I won from a giveaway also arrived Friday and I can't wait to read it!
Mom and Dad.

I got...
Scarlet by A. C. Gaughen.
I read this last year from the library and loved it. It was on my top ten best books of 2012! I was so excited when I opened it, because I didn't know it come out in paperback. I just love this book so much!!!

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.
I have wanted this book for a while now and I think I am not even going to try and read it until school is done for the year, because its huge.
Once; Before Midnight, Golden, Wild Orchid by Cameron Dokey.
I know this author writes in the Once Open a Time series and I think this is a bind up with three of her books from that series. And I also can't wait to read them, because I love retellings and this author is really great at them.
The Louvre; All the Paintings by Erich Lessing & Vincent Pomerede.
This thing is a monster, I think it ways more then my dog. Anyway, I love art history and I hope to go to Paris and the Louvre next year or so and I just am really excited about this book.
I got..
Fullmetal Alchemist y Hiromu Arakawa.
This is the bind up version with the first three volumes in it.  I don't think I have ever said this, but I am really into Mango, and I have watched the Anamia for this series and love it!! I am just really excited to read this, because its great. However, it was printed wrong in a few pages and the last quarter of the page is missing. You can see the text box's were cut of on the bottom of the page. But thank goodness that it was only printed wrong for about five pages, because I would have been so mad if the whole book was like that.

I got..
Everbound by Brodi Ashton.
I won this from Kelly at Ohdamnbooks from her 300 followers giveaway, go check her blog out, it is really awesome. And can't wait to read it, I think I might be my next read.
Thats all I got this week, what did you get?
Happy reading.


  1. Yay, the book arrived that fast? I was expecting you to get it either Monday or Tuesday. Have fun enjoying Jack and more Cole! ;D

    1. I was thinking the same thing and that is why I was so suprised when I saw it in the mail. I can't wait to read my Cole!!

  2. I enjoyed the Fullmetal Alchemist series - I still need to finish it! Scarlet, Once, and The Louvre all look really good. And I really should read my copy of Les Miserables soon.

    Happy reading! :)
