Stacking the Shelves (73)

"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.

So.....I broke my ban this week. I just couldn't not get these books. *sigh* I love buying books to much.

The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
I've heard some really good things about this one and I've been looking for a copy since I heard about it. This was the first time I saw one at Barnes and Noble. So I had to snatch it up before it disappeared.

Cinder & Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
I read Cinder a while ago and really liked it, but I never wanted to get Scarlet in hardcover. Since Cress just released, Scarlet was finally released in paperback. So, I got it and then a copy of Cinder.

Lady Thief by A. C. Gaughen
I loved, loved, loved Scarlet by A. C. Gaughen. It is one of my favorite books. So, of course I got this once it released. However, I got on e-arc of this one and never read t. So, to justify buying this (since I had four other books in my hand at the time) I thought that since I didn't have the decency to read the e-arc when the publishers were nice enough to approve me I had to buy this copy so the author gets some money. I think that's a valid reason to broke my ban, don't you think?

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
I read read the Final Empire and loved it!! So I had to get its sequel. I just had to!!

I also got a book to help me study for my AP exam, but I didn't want to show that one.

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


  1. Yeah, it's hard to go into a bookstore and come out empty handed. For that reason alone I rarely place a ban on myself. A lovely collection of books. I've been meaning to read Cinder and Scarlet. Happy reading :)

  2. Buying books is the best. I loved the Mistborn trilogy! My favorite one is the first book but the third one is all kinds of crazy too.

  3. I enjoyed Cinder! But I have not read Scarlet or Cress. I was very disappointed by Lady Thief - I hope you enjoy it more than I did!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  4. I loved Cinder, and still need to read Scarlet and Cress. I heard they're great as well. Happy reading! Thanks for stopping by Book Sojourner :)

  5. Love Cinder and Scarlet! I have The Bronze Horseman on my e-reader, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Thanks for sharing and happy reading!

    I still haven't read Scarlet yet, so I'll have to so I can read Lady Thief and I so need to get in on the Lunar Chronicles fandom. Hopefully I'm buying Cinder Monday, so yay! :) There's always a good excuse to break a book ban. ;)

    Happy reading! :)
