Stacking the Shelves: October 2015

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Are you excited for Halloween? Are you dressing up? I posted a preview of my costume on my Instagram yesterday. It's kind of book related because it's inspired by the series I just reread in preparation of a November release. Anyway, the reason for this post. I don't usually do these book haul posts because I am on a book buying ban and don't get a lot of review books to warrant doing it every week. But I actually got a ton of books this month with author signings, preorders, and books for review so I though I would share the books that I acquired this month.


1.) Carry On by Rainbow Rowell - (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
2.) Shadows of Self by Brandon Sanderson - (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
3.) The Rose Society by Marie Lu - (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
4) Ice Like Fire by Sarah Raasch - (Add to Goodreads)
5.) Landline by Rainbow Rowell - (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
6.) A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness - (Add to Goodreads)
7.) Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Steifvater- (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
8.) Saga Vol. 1 by Brian K.Vaughn and Fiona Staples - (Add to Goodreads)


9.) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling - (Add to Goodreads)
This beauty came from my amazing Secret Sister. I cannot express how excited I am about it and how incredible she is.

For Review

10.) Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase - (Add to Goodreads)
Family secrets, forbidden love, and a gothic manor house. This sounds like a total me book. Plus I really like the cover, it's so interesting.

11.) In Real Life by Jessica Love - (Add to Goodreads)
Contemp is hit or miss for me but I like the sounds of this one. The good girl being impulsive is stuff I usually like.

12.) The Passenger by Lisa Lutz - (Add to Goodreads)
I'm always looking for a good thriller and I like the sounds of this one. The characters sound pretty dark which I like a lot.

13.) The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie - (Add to Goodreads)
Space pirates. That's really all I need to know. No but honestly this sounds like a pretty unique Sci-Fi debut.

So those are all the books I got this month. Way more than I normally get. A lot of my pre-orders came in and with book signings I bought more books than usual. What books did you get this month? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. YOU GOT THE ILLUSTRATED HARRY POTTER. So much jealousy, but I am so excited for you!!! (Also, that is one heck of a secret sister!) A Monster Calls is an amazing read, so I hope you enjoy it!

  2. OOoh very nice!!! I'm treating myself to the special edition of the Harry Potter Illustrated copy. I hardly ever buy such an expensive book, but this one time, I shall relent! LOL! Happy Reading!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Amazing book haul!! I've been dying to get The Illustrated Harry Potter, but that thing is expensive!! Soon, for sure. Black Rabbit Hall looks awesome too! I hadn't heard of it before now! Definitely going on the TBR list.

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  4. The illustrated Harry Potter is so amazing! I am loving the pictures while reading it with my 5.5 year old. My husband and I have been alternating with bedtime, and it's so sad when I miss a chapter because I want to see all of the illustrations. I hope they do some of the other books.

  5. Happy Halloween for yesterday! You've got a lot of great books in your haul this week! :) Your Secret Sister really is AMAZING, that is one beautiful book to receive. I want to get myself a copy but I am a little torn. I loved the idea of an illustrated edition like that but, as bad as it sounds, I haven't been the biggest fan of any of the illustrations I have seen so far. But I still want it because 1. It's Harry Potter and 2. It's beautiful. And it's Harry Potter, haha! I really hope you enjoy all of your books.
