Stacking the Shelves: February 2016

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

It's almost the end of the month and the last Saturday which means it's time for my monthly Stacking the Shelves and book haul. I am still on a book buying diet but all the amazing books came out this month so of course I bought a bunch. There were some of my most anticipated new releases that came out this month so I had to, you know. Plus I got some really great review books that I'm excited about. I also spent some time stalking Netgalley again this month so I also picked up a bunch of review books.


1.) Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto - (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
This was one of my most anticipated debuts, so I preordered this one and ready it already. It was fun.

2.) A Criminal Magic by Lee Kelly - (Add to Goodreads)
I'm on a book buying diet and should not have bought this but it was impulsive. I'd heard good things and the e-book was on sale so I bought it.

3.) Out of Easy by Ruta Sepetys - (Add to Goodreads)
This was another impulse buy. But after loving Salt to the Sea I needed more Ruta Sepetys and this was on sale and sounds great.

4.) Calamity by Brandon Sanderson - (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
I obviously needed the final book in the Reckoners trilogy in my life. It was amazing, obviously.

5.) A Gathering of Sadows by V.E. Schwab - (Add to Goodreads)
I also needed the next book in the Shades of Magic series. I'm reading it now and loving it.

For Review

6.) Roses and Rot by Kat Howard - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks Saga Press! This is a retelling set in a boarding about sisters and it fantastic. I can't wait to read it.

7.) And I Darken by Kiersten White - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks Random House! I flailed so hard when I got approved for this on Netgalley. Gender bent Vlad the Impaler. Need.

8.) The Smell of Other People's Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock - (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
Thanks Random House! I thought this sounded interesting and it actually blew me away. It was gorgeous!

8.) Devil and the Bluebird by Jennifer Mason-Black - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks Amulet! Britt talked this on our debut podcast and then I saw it on Netgalley and snagged a copy. I canny wait!

9.) Girl About Town by Adam Shankman and Laura L. Sullivan - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks Simon & Schuster. This is historical fiction set during the 1920's so I am so on board.

10.) The Girls by Emma Cline - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks Random House! Another historical fiction but this one is set during the 1960's and again, I am so on board.

So those are all the books I got this month. Thank you so much to the amazing publishers who approved my request on Netgalley and Edelweiss. What books did you get this month? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. So many great books here! You def got me interested in The Smell of Lther People's Houses and Roses and Rot. Gotta get my hands on that Ruta book as well! My book buying diet is not going so well. If it were a real diet is prob be 20lbs over my starting weight..... Oh well, retail therapy makes me happy. 67 more days!!

  2. I LOVED THE SMELL OF OTHER PEOPLE'S HOUSES! I am also wanting to read AGOS in a serious way, but I don't think I will have time until June! I would piece meal it in between review books, but I really want to just sit down with it on a weekend and read straight through. Great haul. Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. OOoh nice! I picked up Revenge and the Wild not too far back as well! Cannot wait to read it! And I Darken looks good, but since her latest books had seem a little iffy to me I was going to wait for some reviews of this one before picking up! Hope you enjoy all the new reads!

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

    Have a GREAT day!
