Stacking the Shelves #7 & The Sunday Post #4

Stacking The Shelves by Tynga's Reviews is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.


The last few days have been pretty crazy with about 13 hours of non-stop house visiting/gambling/chatting daily followed by me crashing the moment I get home. So I have been pretty absent and my blog has taken quite a hit :( I missed my FF post and am super late on my STS post as well. (I will be replying to comments/visiting blogs back tmr!) BUT, I had a pretty amazing Chinese New Year and it was great catching up with all the relatives and having so much fun together! :) I will be posting a few photos sometime next week.

Despite the holiday craziness, I managed to sneak away for a few hours earlier today to get a few secondhand books from a fellow book nerd! :) And well there was a library in the area so I decided to check in out and wow there were A TON of amazing books but I had to limit my borrowing cause I have a few books on my shelf that I really want to get to asap!

I have a week off of school next week (its recess week) so I am hoping to squeeze in more reading and blogging time while I try to finish up all the school assignments due after the break!

Connect with me -> TWITTER ACCOUNT! I am looking for more bookish friends, any takers? :D


Snow Like Ashes: This sounds amazing and its sequel will be out in October so I thought I'll try this out and see how it goes! :) Also, the cover is very interesting!
Half Bad: Another great cover and I read some really good reviews on this so I am excited to read this!
The Graveyard Book: I've always wanted to read The Graveyard Book and when I saw this illustrated version I HAD TO BORROW IT! My boyfriend sped through half of this while waiting for me in the library :P
Splintered: This is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland and it sounds like a really interesting take on the classic!
My Life Next Door: This will be my monthly dose of YA contemporary romance! <3


Everybody Sees the Ants & Please Ignore Vera Dietz: A.S. King has won SO MANY awards for her novels so I jumped at the chance to get these secondhand (in perfect condition)! I really hope to read these soon!
Red Queen: This was just released about 2 weeks ago and I got it BRAND NEW for nearly half its retail price because someone I know got it on an impulse but she wasn't really interested in it so she sold it to me :D I hope I enjoy this~


Station Eleven: Its been awhile since I read a post-apocalyptic novel and this won an award so it has to be good right?
The Raven Boys: So many people have been recommending this to me and I should really get on this bandwagon.
Unravel Me: Read Shatter Me last week and fell in love with the story, I can't wait to see how the story unfolds in the second book :)

  1. Splintered looks wonderful. I think the cover is beautiful as well. I've been seeing the Red Queen around a lot lately, but I haven't had a chance to read it. It looks amazing, though. A lot of my Goodreads friends liked it a lot. :) Awesome haul!

    Here is my Stacking the Shelves!

    1. I hope to get to it soon too! :)

      Thanks for dropping by!

  2. Great haul! Station Eleven is one that I'm hoping to buy soon because I've been hearing really great things about it lately. Half Bad also sounds pretty great; I recently bought a copy and I'm excited to read it! I hope you enjoy your books and have a great week. :)

    1. Yes! There has been quite a bit of hype surrounding those books so I am hoping they are as good as everyone says!

      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  3. I have been wanting to give Station Eleven a try as well. Everyone seems to be reading The Red Queen, but I may wait awhile until the hype wears down. Check out my haul at http://bookertsfarm.blogspot.com/

    1. IKR, the hype is insane! I really hope it lives up to my expectations :P

      Thanks for dropping by!

  4. Hi, I've nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award. For more info, visit

  5. Happy Chinese New Year! And what a fantastic haul! My Life Next Door is just so adorable. It goes in the "happy and sweet" section of the bookshelf. Unravel Me was great as was The Raven Boys. Maggie Stiefvater is such a talented writer. You have so many wonderful reads to keep you busy - hope you enjoy them all :) Here's ours: BiblioJunkies Happy Reading! ~ Bel

    1. Thank you! :D I can't wait to start on The Raven Boys, so many people have recommended it to me!

      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  6. Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai! :D It's a crazy night with all the fireworks and celebrations so no one is blaming you!
    I love all the books by Neil Gaiman that I've read so far, so, I have high expectations for The Graveyard Book.
    I've read a lot of negative reviews about the Seeker so I'm not surprised that you DNF it. Still, it's a disappointment. :/
    Btw, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Check it out here:

    Have fun! :D

    1. I have yet to read a Neil Gaiman book, although I have The Ocean at the End of the Lane sitting on my shelf waiting to be read! I was hoping to enjoy Seeker but it was so disappointing :(

      Thank you so much!

    2. The Ocean At The End of The Land is a good book of Neil Gaiman to start with! Hope you can get to it soon! :)
      Yeah, the blurb does sounds a little bit suspicious. I kind of able to sense that I'm not going to like it. Call it spidey senses! xD
      Welcome. :)
