Stacking the Shelves *40*

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews showcasing new books we've gotten a hold of (bought/given/gifted/trade/for review).

Hi all!  This is a somewhat belated StS post, real life has been kind of crazy this past little while so I've been neglecting my haul posts.  So.  This is my recent(-ish) selection of bookish goodness:



Clearly, I needed a hardcover copy of Heir of Fire, right?! I pre-ordered that bad-boy as soon as it had a cover!  And considering my recent Sanderson-binge, the addition of Warbreaker to the ranks shouldn't be too surprising. Thanks to #SandersonArmy alum Mark for letting me know it was free on Sanderson's website!  Sixth Grave was another pre-order I put in way back before it came out. It's always such a brilliant surprise when those show up in one's mailbox unexpectedly eh? Really makes my day anyway :D 



*HUGE thanks to Tundra Books and Simon & Schuster Canada!*

And these two are eARCs.  I'd been doing really good avoiding NG & EW lately but one momentary lapse led to a few new requests on my part, Shocker, I know >.< Owl and the Japanese Circus I discovered through Carmen my good blogger friend, and as soon as I read that blurb I knew I needed this book.  And then I'd heard about Every Breath through many Aussie blogger buddies when it came out over there and I'd added it to my tbr shelf.  Then it came out over here and the flood of praise followed it across the world...so seeing it up for grabs on NG was one of those 'instant-request moments'. Needless to say when my approval emails came in, I was smiling ear to ear!

That's it for me! What did you guys get?
Don't forget to link me up to your posts :)

  1. Oooo, Every Breath is one that I want to read as I do like the Sherlock theme.

  2. The Brandon Sanderson looks really good. Heir of Fire is an awesome book.

  3. I got Owl this week too! :D And Every Breath was so, so good! I ordered my hardback copy but it hasn't arrived yet *sigh* I just had to have it physically after reading my eARC.
    Still haven't read any of the Darynda Jones books *hides* But I think I actually have the first one on my Kindle.
    I've also tried to stay away from NG and EW but sometimes it's hard... I just know I want to be read when Court of Thorns and Roses shows up there!

  4. It goes against my rules, but I really really must own the hardcover editions from TOG (and my rule is that I don't want to own more copies from a book, I already have the paperback UK versions, but these hardbacks are gorgeous *drools*)

    Happy reading!

  5. I love the cover for Heir of Fire; I think it's my favorite in the series so far. I love it when pre-orders turn up in the mailbox, too; I've been keeping the post office busy in the last few weeks because a couple of awesome new releases all came out this month, lol. Enjoy your haul, Micheline! :D

  6. I've only read Throne of Glass but really want to continue on with the series. I might continue next year, closer to the release of the 4th book XD

  7. SO MUCH APPROVAL WHEN IT COMES TO EVERY BREATH. I hope you love it! I feel terrible because even though I'm in Aus, I never really gave it too much care until the US release....BUT IT'S SO GOOD! I'm having this problem where I love the UK editions (the ones I own) of ToG but...hardcovers are just so pretty. What to do....

  8. I've heard SO many good things about Every Breath! Wish I would have requested it when I had the chance! Can't wait to see your review.
