Stacking the Shelves (3)

**Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga of Tynga's Reviews that spotlights the books we receive each week**

We went over to Trading Books again this week to try and find a copy of The Hobbit (no luck) and I think it was the first time EVER that we spent less than $10 in there! LOL, we came out with 3 books for about $8.

  • Thirteen R3asons Why a novel  by Jay Asher 
  • Changeling by Delia Sherman 
  • Dark Apprentice - Star Wars Volume 2 of the Jedi Academy Trilogy by Kevin J. Anderson (of which Richi already had books #1 and #3 on the shelf and he NEEDED this one to complete the trilogy, Yay!
** ^the two books of mine^ are considered part of my Christmas 2012
Richi won a book from Goodreads First Reads and it was wrapped up so sweetly by the author. Richi's birthday is on the 13th, so he considered this one as a 'sorta first gift' for his birthday. :D

The Gilded Mirror - Corfe Castle by Jocelyn Murray - Richi's Review

I received two books in the mail - wins from the Spooktacular Blog Hop at Halloween.

  • Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake (won from Mary at Readers' District) I've heard so many reviews of this book/series, looking forward to seeing what all the hoopla is about. 
  • The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson (won from Heather at The Flyleaf Review) (I am SO SO SOOOO EXCITED about TGoFaT!!! I've wanted this book for EVER and now I just need to get through my obligated reads to be able to dive into this one) Thanks again Heather!

I also won a giveaway for a pretty Christmas Tree ornament.

It was from Fantasy Steampunk through Melissa Turner Lee who wrote The Earth Painter and The Man Painter and came with a handful of lovely postcards from Charleston, North Carolina which is where the story of the Painter series takes place.

Great week for us!

Happy Reading y'all :)
