Stacking the Shelves {7} & My Reading Pile {11}

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and as I am sharing what I had in my mailbox the last two weeks, I am giving credit to her.

First up, I got The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events #1) by Lemony Snicket.

I won it from a giveaway which was hosted by the always amazing Rachel of fiktshun. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I am sure it will be a dire read indeed, but I have to say, I am looking forward to it already.


This was my first year taking part in ArmchairBEA and I had an absolute blast during those few days. I was also lucky enough to win a couple of books by a publisher, so the wonderful people from Macmillan send me these beauties by Gabrielle Zevin.

It's a Paperback copy of All These Things I've Done and also an ARC of its sequel Because It Is My Blood which will be released in September. They both look so gorgeous!

I am really, really excited about all the books I got and cannot wait to start reading them.


I also received a couple of awesome bookmarks. I got them all because of the wickedness that was this year's YA Crush Tourney - I am super stoked Adrian ended up winning, by the way!!!

The stunning Daemon Black bookmark is from the wonderful Valerie at Stuck In Books. She was Daemon's advocate and did an incredible job, getting him all the way to the Elite Eight.

The Divergent and Insurgent bookmarks are from the lovely Odyssey at The Reader Leader who supported Four who made it into the Sweet Sixteen.


Last but most definitely not least, I received this fan-freaking-tastic book jacket of Lockdown, which is signed by the one and only Alexander Gordon Smith.

 Doesn't it look wickedly awesome??? I am so, so happy to have it!!! And yes, I DID use my little man's cars to weigh down the corners to keep it from rolling up. (A girl's gotta do, what she's gotta do. haha)

So, yes, I had two incredible weeks at my mailbox!!!

My Reading Pile {11}

The amazing Rachel over at fiktshun came up with the idea to share the books you intend on reading during the week, so as I am sharing my reading pile with you, I am giving a big shout-out to her!

July was a terrible month for me as far as the quantity of books I read - two, yes, I read all of two books last month. Mind you, they were both amazing books - Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth - but I still felt so bad for not getting more reading done.

Right now, I am actually reading three books. I am still working my way through Rachel Neumeier's House of Shadows, I finally, finally started Leah Clifford's A Touch Morbid (YAY!!!), and I have also started Inara Scott's The Talents (the giveaway for this book is still going on, click here if you would like a chance to win it).

So, I am thinking I probably won't add any more books to my pile this week. These will keep me busy enough.


What about you, my lovely readers? Did you get any books or book-related goodies in the mail? 
Are there any books you plan on reading this week? I would love to hear from you!

Have a wonderful reading week!!!
