Stacking the Shelves (4)

Stacking The Shelves is 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 physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!  The original meme was started over at Tynga's Reviews.

I have a serious problem.  It seems like since I started participating in this meme, I am actually accumulating more books.  I guess it could be that I always accumulated this many, and just seeing them in one place makes it seem like more, but has anyone else noticed anything similar?  On the good side, many are ebooks and eARCs, so they don't take much space, and I do utilize the library quite a bit, so I am not placing myself on a ban just yet.  Anyway, on to the the haul. (As always, the title will take you to the goodreads description).

I had a pretty decent Kindle Haul as they had some great books as daily deals this past week.  One-click buying is evil!

War of the Worlds Sun and Moon Uninvited Book of Barkley
Reconstructing Amelia Fat Vampire Etiquette & Espionage Curties & Conspiracies
Ready Player One Waistcoats & Weaponry

War of the Worlds: H.G. Wells - This was a free pickup.  I love this tale and hope to read the book one day.  And not to mention, I think that cover is gorgeous.
Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow: Jessica Day George, Uninvited: Sophie Jordan, Ready Player One: Ernest Cline - These are purchases I made because I became a victim of the Kindle Daily Deal.

The Book of Barkley: L.B. Johnson and Fat Vampire: Johnny B. Truant - More freebies I added.
Reconstructing Amelia: Kimberly McCreight, Etiquette & Espionage/Curtsies & Conspiracies/Waistcoats & Weaponry: Gail Carriger - More daily deal victim purchases but hey, I managed to get the whole series for under $6.00!

Hard copies (couldn't get a decent pic so this is from Goodreads)

Bunnicula in a Box!: James Howe. - Bunnicula is one of the first chapter books I recall reading when I was a very young child.  I have always loved the tale and credit it for fueling my love of horror books and movies.  It truly did shape my reading habits.  When I learned there was a box set, I couldn't resist as I no longer have my childhood copy.  I can't wait to read these as I only ever recall reading the first one.  The set contains Bunnicula (#1), Howliday Inn (#2), The Return to Howliday Inn (#3), The Celery Stalks at Midnight (#4), Nighty-Nightmare (#5), Bunnicula Strikes Again (#6), and Bunnicula Meets Edgar Allan Crow (#7).

As this is getting long enough, I think I will save my library haul for next week.  What did you guys get?  Have you read any of these?  Leave me a comment so I can check out your stacks as well.


  1. STS DOES add to your books-it's not just you imagining it! Being part of this encouraged me to go looking for more freebie books or adding what I saw on other blogs to my wishlist. I wanted my haul to look as good and as big as everyone else! I ended up with an out of control tbr that I'm dealing with now, which is the down side to it. Just keep telling yourself to read more than you buy and you'll be ok!

    Ooh Fat Vampire! I liked the first one and I have the rest of the series on my bookshelves waiting to be read. Hope you enjoy it!

  2. Thanks. I love the cover of Fat Vampire. I will check out your haul later today. We are in the middle of a snowstorm right now. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Awesome haul! Uninvited sounds pretty good; I love the cover. Ready Player One is one of my all time favorite books! I recommend it to everybody. I hope you enjoy all your books and have a great week!

  4. Great haul! I know what you mean about the Kindle - one-click buying is dangerous and I'm obsessed with the daily deals! I somehow managed to miss Reconstructing Amelia though which is a shame as I really want to read it! Hope you enjoy all of your books :)

    My Stacking the Shelves:

  5. I've read all the Bunnicula books except for #7. I have to check that out.

    1. It was such a fond memory of my childhood - I had to get them.
