Stacking The Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews

Stacking the Shelves

Here are the rules:

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!

  • Participants are to create their own Stacking the Shelves post and link bank to Tynga’s Reviews so more people can join the fun!
  • Posts can be laid out any way you want.
  • The host site posts updates on a Saturday but bloggers taking part can post any day they choose.
  • Visit Tynga’s Reviews on a Saturday and add your link.
  • Visit other participants sites to find out what they have added!

The rules are simple and it is a really fun way to showcase your books and see what other bloggers are excited about this week! Not to mention the fact that it is a good way to interact with and get to know other bloggers!

    • I am addicted to Netgalley – but I really need to catch up with reading/reviewing ARC’s! 🙂

      Some great books in your haul – The Here And Now looks really good. Hope you enjoy your books!

  1. thebookheap

    This actually covinced me to sign up for netgalley and request some books- lets hope I get one or two of them!

    • It is a great service but don’t be too discouraged if you don’t get loads approved right away. I would recommend checking out the ‘read now’ books and taking a bit of time on your profile. I only get approved for about half the books I request mainly because my feedback to approval ratio needs a bit of work but I am working on bringing it up a bit – just need to stop distracting myself with all the shiny new books lol. 😉

      • thebookheap

        Yeah I mean im not expecting a load of approvals cos i am relatively new to this whole thing. Any recommendations to how I can improve my profile? I’ve added my WordPress and goodreads links to it

          • thebookheap

            Ah okay thanks 🙂 I’ve just selected a few from the Read Now section so ill be working those books into my monthly tbrs to start with 🙂

          • thebookheap

            question: is a book is saying it’s archived in 3 days does that mean I have to have reviewed it by then or just that it’s going off the “Read now” section?

          • thebookheap

            Ahh brilliant okay. Do you normally aim to read them within a set time or do you just go with whenever you feel like them?

          • I try to read them with a time frame in mind but sometimes that really falls by the wayside if there is something else I feel more like reading. 😉

          • thebookheap

            Ahhh okay cool. Thanks for your advice on this! Appreciate it- sorry to have hijacked your post! Haha

          • thebookheap

            Back onto the subject though, some of those books look pretty awesome! I’ve actually read Maria V Snyder’s “Inside Out” but I never continued the series…

          • I am pretty excited about my haul this week. I have wanted to read Inside Out for awhile and it was up for £0.99 on Amazon so I couldn’t resist!! 😉

          • thebookheap

            Ahhh it’s brilliant when that happens.Inside Out was enjoyable but it just wasn’t as strong as poison study and reminded me a lot of Ally Condie’s Matched. I went a bit kindle book crazy in the summer with their sale cos about 6 books on my wishlist were 99p!….er..they’re still sitting there now haha. Do you prefer e-books or physical books?

          • I loved Poison Study! But I wasn’t as keen on the second book and I haven’t yet read the third.

            Kindle sales are my downfall – I just cannot resist lol. 😉 Like you I find it hard getting round to them though.

            I used to prefer physical copies but I couldn’t be without my kindle now (and not just because I was running out of room to store physical books!)

            What’s your preference?

          • thebookheap

            I adored poison study but yeah I felt it kinda strayed in the sequels- do you know there is a fourth Study book coming out?! Did you read the spin-off Glass series?

            haha definitley, kindle books saves so much room. I prefer physical books but can’t deny the great points of kindles ie. space saving, sometimes cheaper and easier to carry around. Plus I use my kindle to access netflix now too.

            I buy my physical books primarily through the amazon marketplace for cheap. Hardbacks can be £2.81 on there and they are often in almost brand new condition! I bought a load around christmas because I knew I’d be leaving my job at the end of january, so I saved up my reading material for the wage-drought hahaha

          • No I didn’t know there was a fourth book coming out… interesting… think I may need a re-read (and to finally get round to book three!) I haven’t read the spin-off series but I did buy them all several years ago – still sitting on my shelf though. 😉

            I love the smell of books (that sounds weird!) and I am always more excited getting a new package of books in the mail than when I download to my kindle but I have gradually leaned more and more towards ebooks since they tend to be cheaper.

            I have scoured Amazon marketplace as well and picked up some great deals. It is good for hard to find out-of-print books. Ebay is good for that too!

            I would be the same – stock up for when I would be a bit shorter on funds!! Hope you find something new soon. 🙂

          • thebookheap

            I never read the spin off series, the characters for it (which are plugged a lot in either the second or third book, think it’s the third book) just never really gelled with me. I’ve only just bought the Study series in the new uk paperbacks and they’re so purdy on my shelves *.* must re-read soon!

            haha I love getting books in the post too, our postie actually says to my mother “what the hell is she buying!?” (to which I say “cheeky get, it’s none of his business!” haha)

            thanks, I hope so too- I’ve got my voluntary work which I love and that gets me a little income each month but yeah, hopefully I’ll get something full time sooner rather than later

          • I will get round to them at some point probably. 🙂 The new covers are very pretty.

            Lol that’s funny. I used to collect Living Dead Dolls (still would but funds don’t stretch that far at the moment!) and the postie eventually had to ask what they were (they all come in coffin-shaped boxes). Think his curiosity must have finally gotten the better of him lol.

            I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you find something good soon. 🙂

          • thebookheap

            Oooh I’m also looking forward to seeing what you think of “Don’t think about it”. I put in a request for that myself but I highly doubt I’ll get any approvals for a while (always worth a try, hey)

          • thebookheap

            ahh well, I’m pretty happy with what I got tonight anyway, some variation in it! Looking forward to your reviews as always 🙂

    • Thanks! I really loved Poison Study so I hope I enjoy this series too!

      I can’t believe I have never read the Cherub series – it has been out for years too and looks really great from what I can see. 🙂

      I have Secrets & Saphires on my TBR pile too. Hope you enjoy your books!
