Stacking the Shelves (9)

I know it's kind of strange to be doing a haul so soon after the BEA '14 book haul post. But I got a few review books, borrowed a couple of books from my friends and some of the books I'd ordered came in. So, I decided I could totally make another video out of it!

For Review
The Name of the Blade by Zoe Marriott (Thanks Candlewick!)
The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O'Brien (Thanks Ksenia & Macmillan!)
Evidence of Things Not Seen by Lindsey Lane (Thanks Ksenia & Macmillan!)

(Thank you to Kristen of The Book Monsters!)
a bag of jellybeans (YAY!)
samplers for Half Bad (Sally Green) & Landry Park (Bethany Hagen)
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

Ruin & Rising by Leigh Bardugo

YOUR TURN - What books did you pick up this week? Have you read any of the ones I mentioned or are you interested in reading them?


  1. AHHHH this haul. I have Shadows on the Moon but haven't read it yet but I've heard such good things. I'm posting a video of Half Bad soon but I thought it was quite enjoyable I gave it 3-3.5 stars. The writing is definitely very unique and the sampler might not even show it all because the style sort of switches back and forth imo. I STILL need to finish The Book Thief ugh it's lovely I just don't know why I keep putting it down. As an Australian I feel so guilty not having this it. OK I NEED TO READ GRAVE MERCY DON'T I?

    OHMYGOD. RUIN AND RISING RUIN AND RISING RUIN AND RISING. I finished this yesterday morning and was just bawling. So perfect. Darkling Darkling Darkling <33333 I pre-ordered the B&N edition as well and it's gonna take forever to get here so I bought the e-book too and the only chunks I highlighted were Darkling bits lol omg that man is so seductive and sexy and I love him. I hope you enjoy. I was terrified of starting this too.

    Great haul happy reading, my email/DM is open for your R&R feels.

  2. I've had The Book Thief sitting on my shelf for forever now. I really need to get to it, especially considering that the DVD is or will be out soon. Happy Reading!

  3. Yay, thanks for taking the effort to make vlogs every week, Alexa! I've never heard of The Name of the Blade until now, and you definitely have me intrigued! And I got The Vault of Dreamers recently as well, it sounds really good! Happy reading, Alexa!

  4. The Name of the Blade sounds AMAZING. Fantasy forever, yo.


    Look at your beautiful cover of Ruin & Rising with the gold! WEEEE!

  5. So glad you liked your goodies!
