Stacking the Shelves/Showcase Sunday (1)

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's ReviewsShowcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea.
These memes are is a replacement of The Story Siren's In My Mailbox.

Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday make a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

Due to all of the drama in the book blogosphere this week, and the accusations that the host of In My Mailbox has plagiarised some of her content, I have decided to stop supporting In My Mailbox and instead, I will now be using the Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday memes to showcase my book haul from the past week!

 This week, I received three books in particular that I'm very excited to read because of the fantastic ideas behind them! Those three books are The Glimpse, the extremely long titled The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In a Ship of Her Own Making and the book with awesome title appeal, Adorkable
I also received the first two books in the Goddess Girls series, Athena the Brain and Persephone the Phony as well as Back and Deader than Ever (Monster High 4). I'd also like to say many thanks to the author Allison Rushby for kindly sending me a copy of Shooting Stars.

I bought one book this week as it was on offer for £3 and I needed to see what all of the fuss was about - Fifty Shades of Grey. I should probably have a review of this up either later today or tomorrow. 


  1. Eeeppp!!! Adorkable is so ADORABLE. Awesome haul! :D

    Drop by My Mailbox?

  2. I've had The Girl who Circumnavigated Fairy Land on my wishlist for a while now, so jealous that you have it! :) I'm curious to what you have to say about Fifty Shades of Grey, I've seen it around everywhere lately.

    Happy Reading :)

    Here's my Showcase Sunday post:

  24. Looks like you received some good books this week although I haven't heard too much about them. Hope you enjoy your new reads :)

  25. Looks like you had a yummy week!!

    Thanks for sharing,

  26. I'm still wary of picking up Fifty Shades...I won it a long time ago back when no one even knew about it...but now O_O I'm scared to even pick it up!

    I also have shooting Stars!! Won it a couple of weeks ago :D
    Happy Reading.

    Because of all that happened this week I also decided to stop doing the IMM and had been looking for another way to show the new books that I got so finally yesterday I found out about Stacking The Shelves...I'll have it up tonight or tomorrow :D

  27. Are those the UK covers for the Goddess Girls' series? They are ADORABLE! I own all the books so far with the US covers but I'm starting to feel the need to collect the UK ones!!!

    Oh, and Glimpse sounds really good, I kind of love the cover :D

    And I'm gonna do Sunday Shut Out from now on instead of IMM. I never linked my IMM to to the person running that meme, but I rather cut all ties to it, anyway.


  28. I got The Glimpse from NetGalley too! I can't wait to read it!

    Here's my post ~ My Week in Books!

    Happy reading!
