Stacking The Shelves (13): Three Months In The Making

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews to showcase any books that I have received for review, bought, borrowed, or won to read.

Soooo, it's been three months since I've done a book haul post! So there's quite a lot to share. But unfortunately no vlog. I've been so busy with packing and moving and studying that I never found the time to do another vlog in the past three months and that makes me sad. Hopefully I'll be able to do one again at some point, but maybe not anytime soon, sadly.

So, without further ado, my book haul for the past THREE MONTHS!:

Happy reading, Aylee! :)

  2. i loved 13 reasons and hope you do too!

  4. EEEEP. Okay, I have a confession to make... I am SO jealous of your haul! ;D You got tons of books that I DYING to read, especially The Burning Sky, The Fifth Wave, and The Bone Season. (I already have a few, such as Blood Red Road, that are on my TBR) I also got A Monster Calls this week because I just loved The Knife of Never Letting Go. Enjoy your books and happy reading :)

    My STS, in case you want to check it out! c:

  5. Great book haul. I have a few of those books for review as well.

    I really enjoyed Scarlet and Dark triumph was awesome.

  6. Wow- you've gotten some awesome books! I really want to read Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock and Asylum. Very different books, but they sound awesome.

    I also need to get a copy of The Cuckoo's Calling. I really want to buy it before I read, instead of going through the library.


  7. Eeeeeeep! This is the most epic haul I've seen this week! Insignia is beyond awesome :) I'm quoted on it, and I haven't read Vortex yet. I also REALLY want Dark Triumph since I love Grave Mercy and I quite enjoyed Burning Sky, it was different!

  8. Scarlet!!!! It is such a good sequel to Cinder. If you liked one, you'll like the other. Happy reading!

  9. Scarlet and Seige & Storm were awesome! Hope you enjoy them both! I can't wait to read The Burning Sky.

    The Bone Season is pretty good too, a lot of info dumps but a great read! Enjoy your books :)

  10. WHOA! So many amazing books! There are so many I enjoyed up there, including The Burning Sky, Siege and Storm and Where She Went. And I can't wait to see what you think of More Than This and Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock. Super epic haul! :)

  11. Yikes! They sure do add up when you don't do a post for a while! I'm so excited for Curtsies & Conspiracies!

  12. So many awesome books. It looks like you made out well over the last few weeks. I really need to read Etiquette and Espionage. And yay for Scarlet and Thirteen Reasons Why! Love those.

    I'm kind of curious about A Star-Swept Sea. I don't like futuristic, dystopian books usually, but that one is based on The Scarlet Pimpernel which is a favorite story of mine!

    Anyway, enjoy all your goodies and happy reading :)

  13. Wow. Look at all that awesome-ness. I don't even know where to start. I'm so excited for The Bone Season and A Star-Swept Sea and Man Made Boy. Great haul!

  18. Wow, that's a lot of books! Hope you enjoy them - I'm intrigued to hear what A Cuckoo's Calling is like. I really enjoyed Where She Went, and I just recently read Scarlet - it didn't blow me away, but it was definitely action-packed!

  25. I looooved Dark Triumph! Such a great book! I have the Iron Fey series but have only read the first book -- really should get reading more! And yay for Curtsies and Conspiracies! I can't wait to read that one ... loved the first book!

    Hope you get to enjoy all of these!

  26. I keep seeing great reviews for THE BURNING SKY! And right on for getting BLOOD RED ROAD - such an AMAZING book!!!

    Fabulous haul! Hope you've been enjoying them all :)

  27. OMG that is one EPIC haul, it doesn't even matter how many months big it is...the collection of books you have there makes me SWOON!!

    Alright so, These Broken Stars Curtsies & Conspiracies, Bone Season, The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates, Burning Sky, Scarlet and the Iron Fey Series are all ones I own as well (YAY US!!) but I still have not read...D'oh! I'm excited to compare notes on all of them though :)

    Dark Triumph, Siege and Storm (and Shadow and Bone for that matter >.<), Dustlands and Cuckoo's Calling are ALL on the wishlist, so this yay is just for you: YAY!! Congrats on this haul Aylee, it's the prreciouusss *ahem*

    Happy reading :D

  28. Dang. I still need to read Insignia. So glad to see you enjoyed it though! Loved loved love More Than This... that book was wow. I should be finally able to dive into The Bone Season this weekend so I'm super excited for that! Hope you enjoy all your new reads! :)

  29. You've got some great books to get through! Enjoy. ~Sheri

  30. They look so good (and pretty)! I think I might get The Bone Season and More Than This, since I have all of this birthday money to spend on books, woohoo! Thanks for your older recommendations, by the way. I got some and I'm really enjoying them - I can't wait to read The 5th Wave and Blood Red Road! I'll be doing my own Stacking the Shelves soon :D

  31. Awesome haul! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on These Broken Stars and The Burning Sky - I've only heard positive reviews for them. Asylum also looks pretty creepy, but there've been a lot of negative reviews for that one so I'm a bit disappointed. Still, hope you enjoy all your new books! The Bone Season was an AMAZING read, and Leonard Peacock was pretty darn depressing but fairly enjoyable as well.

    Happy reading!
