Stacking the Shelves: The Weather-y Edition

"Stacking the Shelves" is a weekly haul meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It allows book buyers to share their accumulation of books with the online book-loving community.

I don’t exactly know why, but I feel like I haven’t written one of these posts in a long time… Weird. Maybe it’s because I split a book haul up into two weeks’ worth of posts…?

Anywho, I’ve managed to pick up quite the haul this week, if I do say so myself. ;)

I actually won the entire trilogy in a giveaway featured over on Mundie Moms that was sponsored by Simon Pulse. Thank you MM and SP!

I originally didn’t think I’d like the new covers because the third book wouldn’t match, but I’m kind of digging ‘em now. Still upsetting that the hardcovers don’t match, but maybe I’ll pick up the paperback of LtWR sometime.

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson
Traps and Trapezes (Nightwing Vol. 1)
REDemption (Red Hood and the Outlaws Vol. 1)
ACOMAF tote bag

I bought all of these except for the tote. That came as a pre-order incentive from Bloomsbury. Thanks, Bloomsbury!

As for the other books, you’ll notice a theme. I’ve been very into superheroes lately, so I thought I’d give some comic books a try as well as finally get around to continuing the Steelheart books. I really enjoyed the first book, so hopefully I can get to the second soon.

I’ve already read and reviewed the comics, so you can check those out here and here.

Oh, and before I forget (because I usually do forget ebooks in my StSs, I got a Netgalley copy of Frostblood by Elly Blake to review. It sounds ridiculously good, so I’m excited.

That’s all for me. What books have you bought/received lately?


  1. I hate it when the book covers don't match! One series I got had 6 gorgeous coloured parchment type covers then the new book comes out and is dull and ugly!!!! *rants* I really hate publishers sometimes...Hope you enjoy your books!

    1. Yeah, a lot of good series have done that. Publishers say it's to get more sales, but I've never really heard of a book that has gotten more sales just because its cover was revamped. Idk. Maybe there is an example, and I just didn't pay attention...

  2. CONGRATS on winning those three! I read the first two books of the series... and pretty much have forgotten what's happened in the series. It's been years between book two and book three. o_o I'm not a fan of the new covers at all! I liked the original ones. Grrrr! LOL. Anyway, I'll get my grumpy butt out of here. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous week, Rachelle. :)

    Check out my STS post!

    1. Haha. I was grumpy at first too. You're not alone. :)

  3. I think I'd be after the tote bag more than the books! LoL! I LOVE totes! Thanks for sharing your great haul! Here's my StS if you'd like to stop by my blog.

    1. It's funny, this is only my second book-ish tote that I've got. I received my first one not too long ago and it was an SJM one too. Weird. :)


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
