Stacking the Shelves (76)

"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.

This week.....I kind of broke my book buying ban. I would be ashamed if I didn't get so many great books.


Fire and Blood by Victoria Scott
I got this one on e-book because it was pretty cheap and I've heard nothing but praise for this one. It seems like everyone who reads it loves it.

-Physical Books-

The Fall of the House of Usher and Other Tales by Edgar Alan Poe
I have Poe's whole collection in one big pretty book. However, that's the thing, it's in one big book and I can't read it comfortably. So when I found this smaller book of his short stories I had to get it. It also helped that it was like $4.

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
I've wanted this one for a while. It looks pretty cool and since it's fantasy it's right up my alley.

The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson
This is the final book in the Mistborn series and I am both excited and terrified to read it. This author isn't afraid to kill off characters and I don't want anymore to die!!!

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
I've heard so many great things about this one!! Added to that fact is that the author is Brandon Sanderson I knew I had to get it. This will be my next read for sure.

The Rithmatist by By Brandon Sanderson 
I've heard very little about this book, but what I have heard says that this book is amazing!! So, when I saw it on the library shelf I knew I had to get it.

That's what I got this week, and yes I realize that half of these books are from Brandon Sanderson but he is one of my favorite authors now. What did you get this week?
Happy reading

    Nice haul! I recently got Fire & Flood and I am excited to read it, have heard amazing things too. I hope you enjoy your books :) My STS.

  2. Awesome haul! You can't go wrong with Brandon Sanderson, and I have heard so many great things about Locke Lamora. I wish you luck with The Well of Ascension, if you cry when characters are killed off I advise reading this one with a tissue box close by.

  3. Some great fantasy titles there! I've been thinking about picking up the Mistborn box set; the series sounds amazing! Happy reading!

  4. Great books! I have the Mistborn series and The Rithmatist sitting on my shelves. They've been sitting there for about a year, and I still haven't picked them up. I need to, but I'm slightly afraid to, since fantasy is not my favorite genre. I hope Mistborn ends the way you want it to!

  6. Fire and Flood is so good!! I'm currently on a book ban from requesting every e-galley that looks interesting on Netgalley or Edelweiss.

    Check out my STS

  7. I agree with @kirstymariejonesstudioreads! Book bans really are meant to be broken! Great haul, hope you enjoy them all.
