Stacking The Shelves #2

Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!
Hosted By Tynga's Reviews


 A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1)   The Replacement
Thanks to Haley @ Passing The Pages

I've heard some good and bad things about A Great and Terrible Beauty which just makes me all the more curious to read it. The cover of The Replacement is so creepy. I finally read a review of it awhile back and learned what it is really about and I'm very intrigued now!

Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1)    Shattered Souls (Souls #1)   Carrier of the Mark (Carrier Trilogy, #1)
Thanks to Jennifer @ My Cute Bookshelf

Very curious about Carrier of the Mark. Heard some good and bad things so I shall see. Shattered Souls has such a gorgeous cover. Wither was disturbing but I plan to re-read them before the release of the last book.

Marked (House of Night, #1)
Thanks to Shannon @ Wringing out Words

I won bath goodies but she threw this in too. I was always kind of curious about this series but I've had people tell me it gets aggravating later. Any of you read it?

For Review

Timepiece (Hourglass, #2)   Kissing Shakespeare   Velveteen (Velveteen, #1)
Hi my name is Jennifer and I'm a gluttonous Netgalleyaholic!
I seriously need to stop. 
Oh but they're so pretty! You know you want them!
No, you have too many books to read.
But I can make time. I swear! I'll read all day and night.
Okay, I guess...if you promise.
I also talk myself into books. I may have a serious problem.

Leave your links to whatever!


  1. Eeeppp!!! SO many GREAT titles. Yeah... I got that kind of problem with Netgalley too ;) Awesome haul! :D

    Drop by my Showcase Sunday?

  2. I love visiting your blog! Seriously, I love to see all your wins, YAY! Congrats!! :)
    Velveteen has been sitting on my Kindle for a few weeks now, and every time I scroll by it I want to stop and read it, other commitments first...

    My Stacking The Shelves will be up tomorrow!
    Happy Reading! ~Lisa

  3. I really enjoyed Carrier of the Mark :) Hope you like it!
    I really want to read Hourglass and I still haven't read Wither :)
    Marked was a great start to the HoN series!


  4. OMG you got velveteen !
    happy reading :)

  5. I definitely need to add Kissing Shakespeare to my TBR list. I wasn't crazy about Wither, but I'm going to continue with the series because I'm kind of curious about what happens next. Cool haul!

    Our STS

  6. Hey Jennifer you've got some really popular titles! Majority of these are already on my TBR list. Congrats on your wins. I had to give NetGalley, because I can never read them all before they expire. Thanks for visiting my post. Cheers & Happy Reading!

  7. "Gluttonous Netgalleyaholic", lol :D
    Great stack! The Replacement is really great, and I can't wait to read Velveteen.
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Great haul! Velveteen is definitely on my TBR. Looking forward to your review on that one! I have Carrier of the Mark on my bookshelf, just haven't gotten a chance to read it yet. The Replacement is a very different/interesting read.

    Happy Reading!

  9. Great books! I bought Wither a lot time ago, but I have yet to read it.

  10. I've been waiting forever to read Wither, I actually won it and it's coming in the mail soon :)!! Marked... if you haven't read it yet, I really want to hear what you think about it. It started out okay but turned meh. And I totally agree with you 100% on the talking yourself into getting books thing!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier today! I'm a new follower~
    Michelle @ The Bookish Poodle

  11. I have Witer sitting on my shelf. I love the cover and I've heard so many great things about it so I hope to get to it soon. Also Marked is so good, I love the whole House of Night Series I have the last one that's come out so far and I really need to read it! I hope you enjoy everything and thanks for checking out my IMM!

    ~Paige @ Comfort Books

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  13. Great book haul, Jennifer!

    I Loved the House of Night series, until I got to book five. Then they just irritated me. I really need to read Hourglass so I can read Timepiece.

    Enjoy all the books!

  14. Congratulations on your win! OMG you got Timepiece for review!?! Can't wait to hear your thoughts! Thank you for stopping by! New Follower :)

  15. Oooh, Wither. I've been interested in that one for awhile but never picked it up. Hope you enjoy all your books! Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

  16. I have Wither and A Great and Terrible Beauty both on my shelf - someday I need to get to them. *sigh* Great mailbox this week! :)

  17. Haha, I need to seriously stop requesting so many books from Netgalley too. Great haul of books this week! I've heard some great things about most of them and they all have such pretty covers!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Aaah, so many amazing books! I don't even know where to begin! x)

    I heard good things about Velveteen. Hopefully you'll enjoy it too, Jennifer! Kissing Shakespeare has such good premise! I've read Wither and really like it. The story is very different! Have fun reading all the books!

    Here is my haul this week!

  19. Lots of amazing books this week! The Replacement has such a creepy cover - but in a rather good way. It'd definitely catch my attention in a bookstore :) I hope you'll enjoy your books, J!

    My Showcase Sunday post

    Happy reading! xxx

  20. Getting wild with Netgalley there Jen! LOL :) Wither was so good! I love the cover of Shattered Souls! And A Great And Terrible beauty was eehh okay. :)
    My Haul?-

  21. Can't wait for Velveteen and Kissing Shakespeare!
    Thanks for stopping by!!

    So say we all!

  22. Congratulations on your win! That's a nice stack of books you received. :) I really enjoyed Shattered Souls and I hope you have fun reading it as well. Enjoy all of your new-to-you books!

  23. I love the way you talk to books!

  24. Wow, awesome haul this week! You got Wither, too!

    Thanks for sharing and stopping by my IMM!
    Renae @ Rolling with the Moments

  25. I just posted a review for The Replacements - I didn't love it :0( Nive mix of books in your mailbox.


  26. Lovely books, Jennifer !
    I hope you enjoy all your goodies. :D

  27. This is a amazing shelf, I am so envious. At the same time, I am glad I don't have all those books laying around waiting to be read. I wouldn't know which to pick up first!
    Now, I am a HUGE House of Night fan, although I have to admit the story loses momentum as you get into the 6th-7th novel, but that's because you are in so deep it can't be handled half-heartedly. I still think it's very amazing, and that there are a lot of unexpected turns up ahead of me (I'm on the 7th novel right now). I hope you'll try and enjoy it as much as I do.
    My StS this week

  28. The Replacement is sooooo good!

    It's the widget under the mailbox!

  29. Thanks for dropping by our blog :) Like you I've heard mixed opinions of a Great & Terrible Beauty but I think I've heard good things about The Replacement and I definitely want to read it sometime soon!

  30. Love all of your books!! I won't even comment on them individually because that'll take forever but I LOVED COTM! I was part of the group that absolutely adored it <3 Enjoy all of these and thanks for stopping by!

  31. Wooow! What a lot of books. They are looking sooo great. And kissing shakespear is one of the books I really want to read. I hope you enjoy all of these books.
    Happy sunday and thanks for stopping by


  32. Hi my name is Christine and I'm a fellow Netgalleyalcoholic! :) I really want to read Velveteen as well, sadly, I wasn't approved! :(
    The rest of your haul looks amazing as well!
    Thanks for sharing your books and supporting STS!

  33. Awesome books - NetGalley is my nemesis, I'm trying to stay away but it's not easy!

    I'd love to read The Replacement, particularly because of the creepy cover - I'm a sucker for them!

    Have a great week!

  34. The House of Night series grabbed me at first but lost me around book six. I know what peoples mean by aggravating. I want to read Shattered Souls, it looks good.

    I have been considering, whether to buy Hourglass or not, for ages now. Seeing as I would have to buy a US edition, I got held back by cost. I don't know why I haven't bought it as I have heard very good things. However now a UK publisher has snapped it up and is being released, considerably cheaper, this month. So I have it on pre-order and I cannot wait to read it! Then hopefully I'll get Timepiece if I enjoy it.

    Good Book Haul :)

    Thanks for visiting my StS.

  35. I'm really looking forward to reading Velveteen and Timepiece myself. I have an unhealthy addiction to NetGalley too! There's just no staying away. ;)

  36. I read the HON series and it killed me, but you know me.. Then again this series is the worst of all YA series for me. It's the mother of tropes and all. ;D I hope you enjoy all your books!

    Patricia // My Week

  37. Awesome haul Jennifer. I know what you mean about being a glutton lol. I am trying to wean myself off though because I have so many books I want to read at the moment that are not review books and I want to get through them so I'm trying to keep it small :) Only two books for me this week, I think I'm winning lol

  38. Oh, my God, so many amazing books here! The Replacement was absolutely beautiful to me, although some don't agree. I enjoy Yovanoff's writing so much.Shattered Souls was also one of my 2011 favorites, and I love that it's a standalone.
    Great post!

  39. Such awesome books! :) I read Marked and I really liked it, and I also have Velveteen from NetGalley and was going to request Timepiece but I haven't read the first one. o.O I'm also a hopeless NetGalley-oholic, and I got, like, six titles this week. Oh God, I need help. ;)

    Thanks for stopping by my Stacking the Shelves Post!

  40. Hahaha. We need to set up a Netgalleyaholics Anonymous. I'm sort of embarrassed by the amount of NG books I have yet to read! :/

    Everything you got this week looks brilliant. Happy reading :D

  41. Lots of great books! I enjoyed Shattered Souls and agree, the cover is gorgeous! I liked Wither too. It is very different. Enjoy! :)

    You can see what I got this week Here!

  42. I loved A Great and Terrible Beauty. One of my favorite series to read. And I read the first three books in the Marked series, but I could never get into them. I found them very dull. And The Replacement always catches my attention when I see it. Maybe I should read it... Happy reading!

    My haul

  43. I really liked A Great and Terrible Beauty, I thought it was different. Hope you enjoy it!

  44. AWESOME title's this week! Most I haven't heard of so I'll be extra interested to see your thoughts on them. Happy reading :)

    Here's the link to my post...

  45. Shattered Souls was awesome. Great haul of books. Heard mixed reviews of the Replacement.


  46. I'm dying to read Velveteen! Thanks for stopping by my STS post.

  47. So many good books! I've had The Replacement on my must reads for so long and I have yet to get to it, but I did hear it's a really great read. Also can't wait to read your review on Velveteen that's another books i'm excited about this year. Great Haul.

  48. Everytime I see The Replacement in the store I pick it up but end up putting it back because as you said, it's a realllllly creepy cover. Can't wait to see what you think of that one! The cover for the second one is GORGEOUS.

  49. What an awesome bunch of books! Heard great things about them.
    I enjoyed the first HoN books but got bored after 4 =/
    Happy Reading & Thanks for joining STS =)

  50. The Replacement's cover looks so creepy!

    Chelsey@Charming Chelsey's

  54. Awesome stack. Shattered Souls was so good. I just adore Mary Lindsey.

  55. Great haul :) !!
    Wither is a great dystopian read, I look forward to know what you think of it. I have a copy of The Replacement on my shelves but still haven't read it .. Happy reading Jennifer !

  56. Yay for all your wins! I've been wanting to read The Replacement for so long... Welcome to the NetGalleyaholics club! HAHahaaaa I'm the SAME way. I can't help myself requesting even though I will never be able to read them all in time. NG is a dangerous place for me. I just went on a spree myself :).
    ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte - My Sunday Post: Book Haul & Blog News

  57. Awesome books you got this week, Jenn! I FINALLY got Velveteen too! When I saw the email from I screamed my head off. lol. I read the Replacement. It was all right, but I hope you like it more than I did. I agree that Wither is disturbing, but it's intriguing too. I have yet to read Shattered Souls and Carrier of the Mark. I have both, just haven't gotten around to reading them yet! Anyway, I hope you enjoy all these books! Happy reading and have a lovely week!

    My Book Haul

  59. You've got a TON of great books, I don't even know which ones to even comment on. Basically you'll love them all!!!

    Kristan @ Lost Amongst the Shelves: STS

  60. I loved The Replacement. It's eerie and intriguing. Hope you enjoy it! ♥

  61. Great books this win. Congrats on the giveaway wins!

  62. Ooh, some awesome books there! I hope you enjoy them! Thanks for visiting Geek Chic This Week :D

  63. Thanks for stopping by! OMG! I loved Shattered Souls!!! I've read the House of Night series and it does get kinda slow and aggravating later on but I've heard its slowly coming back out of that with the release of the most recent book. I got Timepiece a week or two ago from NetGalley. And I totally understand your problem!! I'm trying so hard to stay away from NetGalley at the moment until I've mostly caught up on the books I already got from there. Lol.

  64. great books this week! im exctied to see what you will think of them. esp marked. i have mixed feelings about this series. i love it and i also think its just too dragged out!!! great haul!
    Tara's Haul

  65. Wow!! Timepiece!! I've got it too!! So excited about it! The replacement looks good! ;) Great haul Jennifer! Enjoy all your awesome books this week ;) :)

  66. The Replacement looks seriously creepy, can't wait to see what you think :D! and wow, I'm in shock, I would've sworn you had read the House of Night Series! I really enjoyed them, especially the second and third book! [or was it the fourth one....?] but yeah, they were good, I stopped reading on the eight book, they got kinda like, too much drama for me x) I'm almost sure you'll enjoy them :)

    LOL, Netgalleyaholic? we both are :P Enjoy all of your books!

  67. Nice!! I absolutely loved Wither! For me, Fever wasn't quite as good.

    I hope you enjoy all your new books!

    Here's my STS:

  68. Awesome books this week! I loved Wither, and can't wait to read Fever...whenever I get a chance :) The Replacement was a pretty good dark read, and The Marked (House of night series) annoyed the crap outta me, but still good lol You just have to suffer through alot of overly done teen speak, but if you can get past that, the story line is actually really good :) Happy reading!!

    Chapter by Chapter

  69. Great books!!! I too am an admitted NetGalley addict!!! Read some pretty awesome books recently from them!

    Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by my STS post!

  70. Awesome haul! Netgalley is so addicting!

    Thanks for stopping by!
    :) Aeicha @ Word Spelunking

  71. Great books! I quite enjoyed Carrier of the mark, same with Wither. Marked was not that good. I stopped reading it in the third book. It ticked me off, but i still think you should give it a go. :)

    Happy reading!

  72. Wow, so many great books! I wouldn't know which one to read first!
    Thank you for stopping my Sts. Happy reading!

  73. Kissing Shakespeare looks SO good!!! I hope you enjoy everything! Sorry for the late response, but thanks for stopping by my STS :)

  74. Great haul! I hope you enjoy all of them! x
