Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! Visit Tynga’s Reviews to learn more about this weekly meme.

I got a new bookcase today!  I don’t have pics to show yet, because I still need to finish unboxing it and putting it together.  And I’m not in the mood tonight.  But I did get pics of Iris and Kova playing in the box.  These pics actually capture their personalities quite well.  Iris can be quite hyper, and she’s always on alert.  She also stares at me like that ALL THE TIME.  Kova, on the other hand, is very mellow and much more into relaxing.

FOR REVIEW

Heir of Fire by Sarah Maas: Confession – I have not even started this series yet!  I did read The Assassin’s Blade, which was very good, so I’m looking forward to getting started on this.

 

PURCHASED – SUBSCRIPTION BOXES

I’ve signed up for a ton of subscription boxes over the last year.  It’s an unhealthy habit – for my wallet.  But I’ve gotten addicted to thrill of opening these mystery boxes, even though I have yet to use many of the products that come in them.  Two boxes I subscribe to are book-related: Book Riot and Powell’s Indispensable.  Please Ignore Vera Dietz, The Killing Moon, and A Rogue By Any Other Name are all from the latest Book Riot Box.  (I wrote a review of these items yesterday – here – so I won’t repeat myself in this post.)  All the Light We Cannot See and The Empathy Exams are both signed and are from Powell’s Indispensable.  I have seen great reviews for All the Light all over the place, and I love the pretty slipcover that Powell’s includes.

      I have no doubt I’ll love it, too, and I’m so glad you’re enjoying it!

    Your cats! Are they related? Their personalities are exactly like my completely unrelated cats, although they look very different the expressions are the same! I hope you enjoy all your books – and don’t trip over the cats while trying to put your bookshelves up!

      Yup – sisters! Mine have totally different personalities, too. It’s funny how that happens even with related cats. I adopted them at about 6 weeks old, and they are pretty much the same today as they were then.

    Oh loved, loved Confessions of a Murder Suspect! My first audio book, and won’t be the last, I tell ya. 🙂 How great is this haul? I haven’t read that series yet as well, so it might be a good time to start with the novellas – which were prequels, apparently.

    Have fun!

      I’m glad to hear that, Joy! I probably wouldn’t have even picked it up if it wasn’t free.

      And yes, the TOG novellas are prequels.

    • Stephanie

      Haha – I will very soon – promise!

      I’m going to need to cut back on the boxes. I subscribe to more than 10 currently. And most of it I end up selling or giving away.

    Cats and books go together so well, don’t they? 🙂

    I really liked Please Ignore Vera Dietz, although it didn’t go the way I expected. Nice selection.

    And you reminded me — I need to get a new bookshelf too! IKEA time!

      They sure do! When I was putting together my last bookcases last year, my cats were leaping up on to any shelf that didn’t have books on it yet.

    • Stephanie

      It certainly is. When I put together furniture, I always, and I mean – ALWAYS – put things together upside down, backwards, etc, at least once during the process.
