Stacking The Shelves (8) ( March 2015): The End Result (Part 3)

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! If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!

Yeah so this wasn't supposed to happen but I'm not sorry, I totally earned it in the last few months, cleaning up some much needed books off the pile and I now feel in the need for some good contemporary new adult books so I got these.  Plus I added to my series and I didn't deviate too much from my wishlist so boom. Still on track:

I got these from Bookoutlet and from Books A Million using coupons and discount sales so I only spent about half of my spending limit, I'm saving the rest for next month since April is a big release month for me:


Young Adult Books:

For the breakdown we have:
Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson.

From the Heaven Series by Angela Johnson I got:
This series has a great rating on goodreads, so I scooped them quickly when I saw them listed on Bookoutlet.  They are way smaller than I expected so they should take about an hour each if that to read.

From Angela I also picked up:

Looking For RedA Certain October; they aren't part of a series, just books she wrote that look good. Also on the smaller side so quick reads for me.

The last young adult I picked up is from one of my fave authors of the new adult genre, this one is a paranormal books so I'm looking forward to reading this in the fall:
Red Hill by Jamie McGuire

Now onto New Adult:

I cooped a few Colleen Hoover books, because whenever you mention New Adult her name is one of the few repeatedly mentioned, so time to snag some for dirt cheap:

Then I scooped book 1 in M Leighton's Bad Boy series I already own book two, so I also grabbed book 3:
Then I got Jamie McGuire's latest from the Maddox Brothers series: Beautiful Oblivion (Maddox Brothers 1)

Adult Books

and Last but not least the Adult Genre got a few books including a literary fiction (which I don't normally read too much of, but this one has gotten some rave reviews, that title and that cover though?? Giving me all the feels, so and she went to school in CT so I'm going to give her a try.

Ghana Must Go by Taiye Selasi

Since this series is on my finish it challenge for 2014, I'm picking up the books as I see them, I've already completed three off the list so I had to get the rest:

Wicked Lovers Series by Shayla Black:
Also from Shayla I picked up Bound & Determined, I picked it up thinking it was a part of the series, it isn't; it's a series starter, so new series on the list y'all I never fail at replacing the ones I'm almost finished with, sometimes with even longer one. LOL

Another series I'm collecting from a favorite author is the Sweet series by Maya Banks.  This time around I picked up Sweet Seduction (sweet 3)

Because she's one of my favorite's if I see it I buy it, so I picked up: Healer's Choice by Jory Strong.I have no idea what it's about, but it's Jory so I don't have to worry too much.

I scooped up from Jaci Burton Melting The Ice ( A Play by Play Novel) I have loved this series since it's inception and in fact the newest book is on my Wednesday lust list, so I was pumped to see this on sale at B.A.M

After that I grabbed a few books in another series I'm trying to complete and these are all by Shiloh Walker.  Including:
Yeah then of course I couldn't help my self I picked up these from Kindle cause they were dirt cheap yeah I still have money left over for next month though so I'm good.  Although i really need to take my card off amazon so I can't keep doing this. 


No-Where But Here,  by Katie McGarry because she was having a sale that if you pre-ordered and registered your pre-order she would send the ebook of Abby's story, and if you're a fan of the Pushing The Limits series, you would be highly anticipating that one and since it isn't on sale anytime soon?? Yeah I one clicked that bitch!!

Fall with Me (Wait For You 4) was a must because I'm all caught up on the Wait For You series and needed this one in my life!!

I pre-ordered Asa (Marked Men 6) the second Jay let us know when it was going to be published and it was available on Amazon, this has been sitting there patiently waiting and finally it's almost here

Free Ebooks:

  • Tempting Acquisitions by Addison Fox. This came out in 2013, and I've had it on my list of books to get eventually, when it popped up with a cover change and as free I snagged it quickly.
  • The Hostage Bargain by Annika Martin, I got this because a few of my Goodreads friends loved it and it's free so m why not.

Books To Review (NetGalley/Edelweiss/Etc):

These books will be on tour on the blog next month.

So yeah lesson learnt, book slow downs don't work for me, eventually I snap and purchase all kinds of books. Considering last year's mammoth book binge I'm doing ok. I'd love to sit here and say next month there won't be any hauls but you already know that's a lie so I won't even go there.

What'd you get this week?? Anything good?  Have you read any of these?? Please share in the comments down below and of course I'll see y'all next month.
