Stacking the Shelves *53*

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).

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Even though I celebrated my birthday this past week, the books I'm sharing with you today all arrived late February/early March and aren't at all related to any birthday goodies. I'll share those with you next time :)


The Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn #6), A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab (Shades of Magic #2), Stars Above by Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles #4.5)

Guile by Constance Cooper, Once Was A Time by Leila Sales

This haul is a mix of pre-orders (AGoS, Stars Above) and Physical ARCs (TBoM, Guile, OWAT -Thank you Raincoast Books ♥) As soon as I finished Sanderson's Shadows of Self, I knew I needed Bands like air, and Raincoast was kind enough to send me a finished copy, as well as offer to send me two MG arcs - Guile, features a talking cat and Once Was A Time features Time Travel. Double WIN. And obviously AGoS and Stars Above NEEDED to be pre-ordered, even though I haven't started either yet. When I'm ready, they'll be waiting ;)  At the moment, I'm fully invested in Bands, which I started the moment it arrived!

And that's all she wrote for me. Did you get anything good recently?


  1. Happy belated birthday! Once was a Time and Stars Above sound so good! :)

    Enjoy your new books! :)

  3. Ooooh AGOS! :D I hope you enjoy that one! I also enjoyed Stars Above, what I've read from it at least. :)

  4. I hope you had a wonderful birthday, Micheline! ♥ I got AGoS, too, and I'm so, so, so looking forward to it! We will definitely need to chat about it! :D

  5. Oh, yay! Birthday book shopping is the best! Have fun with it! Nice haul, I keep forgetting to buy A Gathering of Shadows. I have a coupon, I should probably use it for that. I hope you enjoy your new books!

  6. Happy birthday! Hope it was a great one! I've been thinking of trying Sanderson but not sure where to start- maybe this series. And Once Was A Time- I am always up for time travel so I'll be checking that one out. :)

  7. Happy Birthday! Once Was a Time sounds amazing. Middle grade and time travel? I have an eARC and cannot wait to read it. Great haul.

  8. You got some amazing books for your birthday. I hope you love all of your new books this week.

  9. Happy Belated Birthday! I'm looking forward to seeing your birthday loot. I did not realize that Leila Sales had another novel coming out, and that it involved Time Travel, I am a big fan of hers. I hope you enjoy all your reads!

  10. Sweet, beautiful haul! Brandon Sanderson AND A Gathering of Shadows! I also recently got AGoS in audio and I'm really looking forward to it. Excited to hear what you think of Stars Above too. I still need to finish Winter, but after that I will likely check out this collection :)

  12. Love the cover of OWaT - and I went and checked it out on Goodreads and it sounds right up my alley. Leila Sales isn't a favorite author, though (her books have all been good but nothing that I've been extremely excited about), so I'll wait and see what you think of this one. :-)

  13. I love the time travel trope - I will have to check out Once Was a Time. Hope you enjoy.
