Stacking the Shelves (8)

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

Here it’s chance to share the books you’ve acquired this week and what you’re excited about. So it will be a weekly Sunday occurrence to see what we’re ‘Stacking the Shelves’ with!

Bought this week.

On my trip through Wales, I discovered an AMAZING second hand book shop that had literally thousands of books inside. Not all of them fiction, some were fabulously old history books and travel books etc. So I picked up a couple of books as a holiday treat.

I also bought a couple more book from Waterstones. This week has been a bit of a book whore week. However, I did use my points so it wasn’t like I was spending money! I’m very much looking forward to both of these!

Won this week.

Well I won them last week/this week, but I haven’t got these books until this week.

Thank you to The Reader’s Den for this one! I’m soooooo excited to start reading it and doesn’t the cover look fabulous?!


Then I have these few babies that are waiting for me at the post office, so I don’t have pictures of these yet. Thanks to The Flutterby Room for the chance to win these!

  1. I really liked Anna Dressed In Blood – totally spooky! I’ve been seeing Carnival of Souls everywhere lately, so I decided to read the Goodreads summary. And, MAN!!! IT SOUNDS SOO GOOD!! Ahh!! I hope you like A Great and Terrible Beauty!! I LOVE THAT SERIES! Nice haul! (Thanks for commenting on my blog :D!)

      Yes, I’ve never read a Melissa Marr book before, so this will be a new experience for me. I’m very excited about it actually! It sounds AWESOME! 😀 Thank you! I nearly bought it last week, so I’m sooo glad I didn’t. haha. Thank you too! 🙂

  2. Wow! You got some amazing reads this week! I loved A Great and Terrible Beauty and Revolution, so I hope you enjoy those two just as much as I did! I’m thrilled that you picked up Carnival of Souls – I can’t wait for your review of that one – and Anna Dressed in Blood and The Name of the Wind have been sitting on my shelf for ages, so I’m excited to see what you make of those two! Enjoy! 😀

      Thanks! I thought I did too!

      That’s great to here. I’ve been looking at A Great and Terrible Beauty for a while, but I’d never heard of Revolution, so fingers crossed I’ll enjoy it.

      I can’t wait to read Carnival of Souls, it’s very exciting! haha.

      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  3. You had a great week in books! I recently read both A Great and Terrible Beauty and Revolution. I loved both of them! They were so great. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the books. 🙂

  4. I really enjoyed The Trylle series and A Great and Terrible Beauty (I really need to finish this series soon considering how good the first one was!). So lucky that you won Carnival of Souls and I can’t wait to read the sequel to Anna Dressed in Blood! Happy reading! 🙂

      Glad to hear you enjoyed them! 🙂

      I know. I’m absolutely thrilled! Well I’ll see how I go with the first one, but I’m pretty excited.

      Thank you and thanks for stopping by, I never realised until after I visited your blog.

  5. Ohmygod I’m so insanely jealous! You got Carnival of Souls!!! EEEEEEP! It sounds so amazing! I hope you love it! I also have my eye on Anna Dressed in Blood. I totally need to buy that! Have a great week. 🙂

      I know! I’m sooooo excited! haha. It does sound amazing.

      I caved and bought it since it looks sooooo good. Thank you! 🙂

  6. Nice haul! I haven’t read that Stephen King one although I want to and congrats on winning books, yay!

  7. I recently added The Name of the Wind to my TBR list! Another blogger highly recommended it be read, and the ratings (plus reviews) only add good things. I keep hearing about Anna Dressed in Blood — it’s not a book I’d normally pick up, but many seem to enjoy it. I’ll have to check it out some time! Ooh, and I’ve heard A Great and Terrible Beauty is good, too.

    Awesome book haul!

    • Livvy @Nerdy Book Reviews

      I’m reading it as part of a group read on Goodreads which is why I’ve got it. I’ve heard it’s meant to be an amazing fantasy book!

      Yes, I’ve heard lots so I’ve had to pick it up too! 🙂

      Me too! I’m so excited that I won that one!

      Thank you.

  8. That looks like a great haul! I feel you…….. I just got payed and I went a WEE bit crazy at B&N this week!

  9. Great book haul! The books you got look really good. I really want to read Anna Dressed in Blood, that one sounds amazing and looks very creepy. 🙂

      Thank you! I’m so excited about all my haul this week. It does! I’ve been looking at buying it for weeks now, so I’m very excited to read it! 🙂

  10. What a great haul! Now I have to go check out your Wales post!

  11. I really enjoyed Cinder by Marissa Myer so i’m looking forward to Carnival of Souls. I really enjoyed Switched and i hope you do too.

    Happy reading! 🙂

    • Livvy @Nerdy Book Reviews

      Carnival of Souls is Melissa Marr… not Marissa Myer. Glad to hear you enjoyed Cinder though, I’ve heard lots about it and want to read that myself!

      I hope I do to. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  12. Some awesome books this week 🙂 I hope you enjoy them all and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  13. I’m desperate to read Anna Dressed In Blood! Haven’t gotten round to buying it yet though…Lots of other great books there!

    • Livvy @Nerdy Book Reviews

      I’d been staring longingly at it in the bookshop for ages, so I can’t wait to read it. You really will! 🙂 I know, I’m very excited.

  14. I loved Anna Dressed in Blood and Carnival of Souls, hope you do too. I’ve had A Great and Terrible Beauty for ages and really need to read that series. I’ve heard great things about it. Awesome haul Livvy! 🙂

    • Livvy @Nerdy Book Reviews

      I hope so too. I’m excited for both. I’ve heard lots about it, so I really do want to read it soon.

      Thank you! 🙂

  15. I loved Libba Brays Gemma Doyle series. I read it a few years ago and remember that I got really attached to Gemma. The whole series really moved me. I just loved it.

    Awesome haul, hope you enjoy the books! 🙂
