Stacking the Shelves #001

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Oh my gosh, you guys. Here it is. My first ever haul/Stacking The Shelves post. Before I knew what this meme was, I was just going to do monthly hauls the way that BookTubers do them. However, that would be a lot of books in each post.. What I think I'm going to do from now on is bi-monthly Stacking the Shelves posts. On the second and fourth Saturday of each month expect to see a book haul here on my blog (assuming I stick to this properly. *fingers crossed*) Since I've bought a lot of books this month, I'm doing my February posts today and on 2.22 (Ironic because two is my favorite number and it will be my second Stacking the Shelves... I'm scared by the coincidence) and just splitting the haul in half. I hope all of that made sense... It probably didn't. Anyways;

Without further ado, here's my haul!

Player One by Douglas Coupland
I believe I heard about this book from Sanne at BooksAndQuills on YouTube. The plot really hooked me and I found that interesting since it wasn't something I would typically go for (being that it's an adult novel and not fantasy or paranormal.) She mentioned it a while back and it really peaked my interested, so I ordered it from The Book Depository. It was actually the first and only book I've ever ordered from there and I have yet to receive it. Do they always take this long to get the books to you? It's been at least two weeks and it's still on it's way!
The Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld
I had been interested in this series for years and years. I can literally remember wanting to read this when I was in middle school, but I never did! I recently heard good things about it again and saw the entire box set on Amazon for a great deal. So, how could I pass that up? I have yet to read any of these.
If you know anything about me, you'll know that I read this a few weeks ago and LOVED IT. If you want to see me rave about it in official review form, you can find the post right here. Guh, I just loved this book and I'm not sorry. GUH!
When I wrote that review I hadn't finished the graphic novel, yet. I've since finished off this graphic novel and wasn't really sure how I felt about it. I appreciate graphic novels very much, but I wouldn't recommend it as a substitute for the actual novel because a few characters that I really liked were left out as were certain minor plot points. Just little things like that. But, the illustrations are amazing!
Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
Considering how much I adored Miss Peregrine's, it shouldn't come as a shock that I went out and purchased the sequel immediately after finishing the first book. I haven't read Hollow City yet, but I intend to in the very near future.
Go Ask Alice by Beatrice Sparks as "Anonymous"
I have distinct memories of seeing classmates reading this book when I was in high school. I never read it myself, but when I saw it at Books-A-Million for a buy 2 get 1 free with the following two books, I just decided to go for it since it's always been a book on my radar.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
I have heard nothing but fantastic things about this book (and series.) I have a feeling that once I finally get around to reading this novel I'm going to love it, but until then I'm just excited to have another rubbery-feeling paperback. Does anyone else LOVE the rubbery-feeling paperbacks? Do you even know what I'm talking about? Just me? Alright.
Wither by Lauren Destefano
Just as with The Mara Dyer Series, I've heard great things about The Chemical Garden Series as well. I was going a little crazy the day I went to Books-A-Million and just grabbed basically every book I've ever heard good things about aaaaaand now I'm broke. Hahaha. But, seriously the cover of this book is really pretty and I can't wait to dive into this.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Oh, Cinder Cinder Cinder. It seems as though The Lunar Chronicles Series is the number one favorite among the book blogger community. I have heard everyone and their mother rave about these books and decided to jump on the bandwagon. I'm probably going to finish this book today and I'm already in love. Be looking out for a review!


  1. AH! Okay so the Uglies series is one of my all-time favorites. Seriously, I read them so much in high school (when the series first came out for me) that my books are literally falling apart. So I'd definitely recommend getting on those quickly :) SO GOOD!

  2. Nice haul! I really enjoyed Cinder and just got Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children. Can't wait to read it!
