Stacking the Shelves (53)

"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.

Last week I was doing so good at keeping my buying low with books and than this week decided to go ahead and ruin it. First I went to the library and got a few books and than I went to my local indie used book store and got sucked into all the wondrous books.

The Strange Case of  Dr. Jekyll and Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
When I saw this I just had to get it. How can you not get this book when you see it in a used book store? And it's in the edition that I've been collecting. 

Persuasion by Jane Austen
I'm in love with this edition for classics. And now I almost have the whole collection of the Jane Austen books. 

Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles 
I loved this book so much and I'm so excited to own this!! And I have the second book, but until now I haven't owned a copy of this. 

Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles 
I liked the first in this series so when I saw this at the used book store I just had to get it.

MistBorn by Brandon Sanderson
I've heard so many great things about this series. So, I finally just requested it from the library. I really hope this book lives up to the hype.

A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly
I liked her other book and when I saw this at the library I thought why not.

Invisibility by Andrea Cremer & David Levithan 
I've heard some good things about this so I just got it.

That's what I got this week, what did you get?
Happy reading


  1. Persuasion is my favorite novel of all-time! And I'm dying to start the Mistborn series; it's supposed to be amazing. I hope you enjoy all of your books!

    My StS

  2. I've been really curious about Invisibility. I enjoyed Andrea Cremer's Nightshade trilogy. Great haul and thanks for stopping by My Haul!


  3. My husband loves all of Brandon Sanderson books. I haven't read any, but from what I've heard it should live up to all the hype!

  4. I loved Rules of Attraction! Not quite as much as the first one, but it's still great. A Northern Light is also awesome - Donnelly does beautiful historical fiction. Thanks for stopping by my StS earlier, Kimberly! :)

  5. I haven't read any of these books - except bits abd pieces of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I've wanted to read something by David Levithan forever just finished reading Every You, Every Me which was quite good - I think I'm going to be grabbing all the booksi can of his!

    Have a great week and happy reading!

  7. I loved Simone Elkles' Perfect Chemistry series, still need to read Leaving Paradise! I was disappointed with Invisibility, it wasn't terrible, but not amazing. Hopefully you'll like it! I believe I have a copy of A Northern Light on my shelf that I haven't read yet :) Happy reading!

  8. You got an interesting assortment of books. I have the Sanderson one and Invisibility somewhere on my TBR mountain. Come see what I got this week at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  9. Woot! Mistborn! ♥ I'd never heard anything about the series when I read book 1, except for the one friend who recommended it but man did it ever blow me away! I'm very eager to see how you'll like that one :D Oh and Invisibility is one that I'm very curious about too! Hope you love all of these Kimberly :)

  10. Nice bundle of books! You have to splurge occasionally!! It happens, you have been pretty good!!
