Stacking the Shelves (2)

I'm always so grateful to be able to have access to incredible titles like the ones in this video below.

YOUR TURN! What books did you acquire recently? What are you planning on reading in the next two weeks?


  1. Hi cute Alexa!!!

    Ksenia sent me a hardback of Cress, too, and I am SO EXCITED that it got here in time for Marissa's signing today! She's here in Utah, and I am SO EXCITED! I've actually met her twice already, and she is so nice and sweet! I'm excited you finally get to meet her!

    AHHH! Under the Never Sky!!!!!!!! ALEXA. I am so in love with this trilogy, and I am so excited you're going to read it!!!!!! You have to text me about all the feels!!! I felt all. the. feels.

    So many good books!

  2. Oh my goodness, the Hogwarts Library? Is it simply amazing? The post about guessing the baby bloggers was so much fun but really hard! I recently got Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and The Cuckoo's Calling by J.K. Rowling in the mail. Really excited to read both, I've been of a fan of J.K. Rowling for a while now, but I haven't read anything by Rainbow Rowell.

    Great post! :)

  3. Damn, girl, that's some kind of haul! A lot of super great titles in that mix, too... to say that I'm jealous would be a hell of an understatement! And glad I'm not the only one who hasn't gotten to The Girl of Fire and Thorns and the Under the Never Sky trilogies yet! :)

  4. SO MANY BOOKS! You could build a fort out of them and that would be awesome.

    INTO THE STILL BLUE IS THE BEST. It deserves all of my caps.

    THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS, that is my jam. I love that book always.

    I am pumped for The Chapel Wars.

    Actually your whole haul is awesome.

    ALSO your fauxto modelling rocked.

  5. I just bought After Hello. I'm excited to read it! You got a lot of really fun books this week!

  6. I was disappointed by Ignite Me, tbh. Loved Cress, though! :D Ooh, I recently read the Hogwarts Library collection, and really enjoyed it. Not idea it took me so long to get to it, aha.

  7. The Humming Room!!! So good! I know you'll love that one! And I really need to pick up a copy of the last Veronica Rossi book ... that series is just too darn good!

    Enjoy all your books! :)

  8. Alexa!! This is a freaking FABULOUS haul :) I have the Hogwarts library too and it's SOOO beautiful you are right. I seen Strange and Ever After up on edelweiss but I haven't read the first two books so I passed it up. I've been thinking about maybe trying the first one this weekend though because I've seen so much love for it! I loved your fauxto that you were in! I am seriously addicted to margot's remakes so that is AMAZING that you got to be in one :D I hope you enjoy all your books!!! Happy Reading xo

  9. So much awesome! The hogwarts library looks SO PRETTY and gorgeous! Yay Lux!! :) I also failed and haven't read like anything this week because I've been so busy. Still gonna binge UNTS SOON. I also have girl of fire and thorns - will def read soon, I've been seeing you guys talk so much about hector! Dorothy must die!! that one looks amazing, I also love retellings so can't wait for that one too!

  10. Wow! What an amazing haul!!

    Soooo insanely jealous of Dorothy Must Die!! I binged the Under the Never Sky trilogy in January and, unfortunately, I was a black sheep and din't enjoy them as much as I had hoped to :\ Hope you love them!! I'm binging The Lunar Chronicles this month and the Shatter Me trilogy next month! And The Girl of Fire and Thorns in April.. Maybe! I haven't totally decided yet.

    I have Where the Stars Still Shine but haven't read it yet and I'm really excited to!

    Enjoy all your awesome books!!

  11. I LOVE The Girl of Fire and Thorns. Hoping to read the last two books soon. Yay for Ignite Me and Cress! I've already read Cress, but I have to pick up Unravel Me before I can read Ignite Me. Also HOORAY for Where The Stars Still Shine. That was one of my favorites of last year. Enjoy all your new books!

  12. You're welcome :D I'm glad it made it to you safely!
