A little of this and a little of that.

Stacking the Shelves #26

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews and co-hosted by Reading Reality. It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves; may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in a store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course eBooks.

These are the books I added to my shelves this week, I also added a couple of stuffed furry friends. I’ve wanted a Barnes & Noble bear for a while now and I couldn’t pass up purchasing Barnsie & Noble, the doggie, this week while they were on sale. I found the perfect spot on my desk for them, surrounded by books.

I’m not going to add a synopsis for each book, but all book links will take you to Goodreads. 

Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

When It's Real by Erin Watt
Read: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I loved this so much when I listened to it in audiobook format, I had to add the physical book to my shelf. When It’s Real is one of my favorite reads for 2017.

Read: ⭐⭐⭐
I hate to admit that I purchased this book because of the cute little puppy on the cover. It was a cute, quick and sweet second chance romance. 

Rock Solid (Book Boyfriend #4) by Carly Phillips, Erika Wilde

Spider by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Damaged by Willow Winters

Dear Everly: a romance novel by London Casey, Jaxson Kidman

Love on the Edge of Time by Julie A. Richman

I’m currently listening to this series on audio and surprisingly I like it. I own book one, The Selection, on Kindle and when I read it five years ago I didn’t particularly care for it and never continued with the other books. I’m happy that I picked it up again, listening to it in audiobook format has made it more enjoyable. This series has mixed reviews, you either love it or hate it…

I’m a slacker with my blog lately. But, that’s okay, I blog just for fun and to help me keep track of the books I’ve read. I don’t have many followers and I don’t have any kind of pressure to review books from authors or publishers, so it’s okay to slack every so often. I’ve been spending more time reading, I’m currently binge reading the Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs. Today I’m starting book #6, River Marked, so far, I’m enjoying this series immensely.

My son is trying to talk me into vlogging about books, he seems to think people would like me because of my personality, he’s so sweet to say that. Maybe in the new year I will video a bookshelf tour, those are some of my favorite book videos to watch. I personally don’t think I would be good at vlogging, I would say “this book sucks, don’t waste your money” and I can only imagine all the hate comments I would get…lol  

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has added to their shelves and if you’ve read any of the books I have listed, please let me know what you thought of them.

Have a wonderful week and Happy Thanksgiving, thank you for visiting. Happy Reading -J


  1. Wow,love those boy books-nice! But I love the Barnsie and Noble doggie how adorable!!

    1. Agree, both are adorable. I'm thinking of going back and purchasing a couple more to give as gifts. Enjoy your day and thank you for visiting.

  2. I didn't think I'd enjoy Kiera Cass either, but there is something compulsive about her books, isn't there? Have a good week! :)

    1. I just love a happily ever after, and he books do deliver that. I'm happy that I picked them back up. Thanks for visiting.

  3. You got some great books this week! The stuffed furry friends are so cute! Hope you enjoy your books. I have watched some vlogs on books and find them interesting. Have a great week and enjoy your books!

    1. When I'm not reading I'm addicted to a few book tubers, it's great to see their book hauls as well. Have a wonderful day.

  4. Oh man, what a haul, Jovita! The Barnsie and Noble doggie is too cute for words.

    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. Thanks Lexxie, you have a wonderful week also.

  5. I agree with you about blogging. I blog for fun, and I like to do it for me, so kudos to you. :)

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books! And thanks for visiting Shell's Stories.

    1. That's great to hear, I think sometimes other bloggers get so overwhelmed with arc's, it just doesn't seem fun for them anymore. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful week.

  6. Oh wow, you did good! My preorder of The Becoming of Noah Shaw finally came and I'm excited to read it! I need to reread the original series and refresh my memory. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous week, Jo. =)

    Check out my STS post!

    1. I'm horrible, I still haven't read the Mara Dyer series, hopefully in the new year. I plan to get through some of these series sitting on my shelves. I hope you enjoy The Becoming of Noah Shaw, I heard mixed things. I'll be sure to check your blog for your review. Thanks for visiting Alyssa and have a wonderful day.

  7. Great haul! I haven't read any of the books you picked up yet but I do have When It's Real on my kindle waiting for you. The stuffed bear and dog are adorable. Enjoy your books and have a great week!

    1. Carole I hope you enjoy When It's Real, it's one that I would probably read more than once. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

  8. Alex, Approximately is one of my favorite reads this year. I hope you love it! I really liked Catching Liam too. I read it a while back, but remember it fondly. I am curious about Spider. I usually like Madden-Mills' books, and I like the sounds of this one.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I love reading them.
