Stacking the Shelves - the BDay edition (March 15)

Stacking the Shelves
- Hosted by: Tynga’s Reviews





Description: Stacking The Shelves 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!

Kindle Buys:

    
 
 
 My Kindle grabs for this week consisted of two YA authors and one adult author. My first grab was Shannon Hale’s new book Dangerous – one that I have been eagerly awaiting the release of. I pre-ordered this way back when it first was announced, so I was very excited to see it on my Kindle this week. J

My other YA author grab was a new to me author – Jessica Brody. The book is titled Unremebered and was a $2.99 Kindle Deal on Amazon, so of course I grabbed it. It seemed to have good reviews, so I’m excited to try it out. My other Kindle grab was The Theory of Opposites by Allison Winn Scotch – another new to me author. This one is an Adult Contemporary, the book was on sale of $.99 in the Kindle store and the blurb sounded interesting – so of course I grabbed it.

Book Buys:

 
My Book grab for this week was the highly anticipated arrival of one of my auto-buy authors new books: Year of Mistaken Discoveries by Eileen Cook!! I’ve been awaiting this one pretty anxiously, so I was so happy to come home and see the box for this one on my doorstep!

Birthday Gifts:
    

     
Finally, it was my birthday this past week and my amazing husband was kind enough to indulge, spoil, and completely pamper me. I took the day off work, so his gifts included: a 90 minute Swedish massage, chocolate dipped fruit, a surprise lunch, and then he took me to Barnes and Noble to get books! (Have I mentioned I have the best husband in the entire world?!)
My book gifts from my wonderful husband included: two amazing YA books by Elizabeth Eulberg, two romances with adorable pups on the cover by Kristan Higgins, a physical copy of one of my favorite Sophie Kinsella reads, and a fun writing prompts journal that I saw and really wanted. Like I said most amazing, spectacular, I-don't-deserve-him-he-pampers-me-so-much husband in the entire world. <3
