Stacking the Shelves 47 - BEA Edition

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 guys! This is technically part two of my official Book Expo America 2015 recap: my book haul! (If you missed part 1 and want to check it out click here) Usually I take pictures of each individual day's haul, but this year due to lack of sleep, I neglected to take pictures my first and second day and now I have no idea which book I got on what day!  Also, this year I got less books overall than I did previous years, so a day-by-day haul might have been a little boring for some readers. In any case, here is a picture of my haul in it's entirety and the links to each books can be found below (in no particular order):

*Please note that I won't be linking up to the authors as well as the books here like I usually do, due to the sheer volume of books + lack of time on my part.  The books will be linked to their Goodreads pages so you can easily check out the authors from there.*

And here are the titles + links for the books, as the appear above^^

All in all, a modest but respectable haul this year.  I always try to exercise control by taking only what I *really* want, but this year more than ever, considering I still have books left over from previous BEAs and the fact that I'm currently running out of space to store ALL THE BOOKS.  I can't bear even considering taking a book that I think someone else might really want when I'm unsure about it.  I'm very happy with my haul this year, even though I'm still slightly depressed that I missed out on my top coveted item: Truthwitch, due to miscommunication on the publicist's end :*(
Hopefully the Canadian book publishing gods will smile upon me when I request it closer to the release date. I NEED THAT BOOK IN MY LIFE!!

And that's it for me this year.  I already miss NYC and all the blogger friends I've made this past year and all the previous years as well.

What books are you most excited about? Hit me up in the comments!


  1. Whoa. All them pretty books! Looks like you got some awesome books at BEA. Happy reading :D

  2. I have Illuminae on my TBR list! It is a popular book at the moment! Happy Reading

  3. I was pretty good this year about the books that I took this year. I managed to get TruthWitch, but by sheer luck. The publicist at Teen Author Carnival told me what they were doing. Great haul. Illuminae is huge though. You got some terrific books.

  4. I'm so jealous of BEA hauls. Happy reading!

  5. Congrats on the book haul - and all the signed copies ^^ Enjoy !

  6. Amazing haul! I see some really good books in there... especially Zeroes and After the Red Rain! I hope you enjoy all of your books. :)

  7. Awesome haul! We're you stuck in that HORRENDOUS line to get Passenger, too? I was in the middle of the line and it took an hour and a half to get my book signed. I was able to leave and wait in two other lines for signings that started later than the Passenger signing was supposed to END. Passenger better be good! I missed out on Zeroes and I wasn't there on Friday to get Six of Crows (I'm bummed about that and jealous of your copy). Enjoy all of your lovely new books!

  8. Look at all those goodies!!! I am very envious of your hard copy of Illuminae, especially since I have the eARC but heard recently that the digital version might have visuals in it that don't translate as well as the print format. That's definitely making me nervous to read it - I really hope the story will still work for me in spite of this issue.

  9. Haven't heard of Truthwitch, I must google this!
    *grabby hands* So many pretties here, I think I am most excited for Six of Crows though, I can't wait to see what Bardugo does with it.

  10. If you don't have any space left, I'm more than happy to take those books, hahaha. Newt's emerald, Passenger, Walk on earth a stranger, Court of fives, The doldrums, Lair of dreams, The marvels, Six of Crows: I wouldn't mind having those books in my posession. Happy reading girl :D

  11. Yay I've been waiting for part 2 of this post! So many awesome books, you're the first person I've seen with that Kelley Armstrong one!
    Lots of these are on my wishlist, I borrowed Soundless and loved it, and I was given Zeroes by the publisher so I'll be reading that one soon.
    It's a good thing that you only took what you really wanted, and sorry you didn't get Truthwitch. I'm borrowing that one right now too, but I still hope the publisher will ship some out to bloggers. :)

  12. Oooh- you got the other Wolves of Mercy Falls books (among so many other lovely, lovely pretties!)! I'm excited for Lair of Dreams- it feels like ages since I read The Diviners. I just finished Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld and was blown away by his writing; hope you enjoy Zeroes and all the rest of this amazing haul! :D

  13. I love the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, Micheline, and I really think you will as well! Stiefvater's writing is really good.
    I got Lair of Dreams last week, which is why I bought The Diviners this week when I realized it was missing from my shelves.
    You did very well at BEA, and good for you getting only books you're really excited about!
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading :)

  14. Awesome, I think you have such a great unselfish attitude when it comes to getting books at BEA! Out of these, I'm probably most excited for Six of Crows (because I can't wait to get more out of the Grishaverse) and Walk on Earth a Stranger (not that I've read her other series yet, shhh). I hope you love all of these reads!!
