Stacking the Shelves #1

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, in which we showcase the books we received in the past week.

So . . . hey!  I realize I've joined in rather late, but I explain in the vlog why this is my very first Stacking the Shelves post.  I'm sure you're all aware at this point why I stopped participating in the In My Mailbox meme, so I'm simply going to state that I refuse to support that kind of behavior, and from now on, this is the meme I will be participating in.

And without further ado . . . a vlog!

Books I received/bought in the past . . . however many weeks:

Cold Fury by T. M. Goeglein
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta (Thanks, Esther!)
Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta
I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart
The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen
Psych Major Syndrome by Alicia Thompson (Thank you, Sarah, for this and the above!)

Ones I forgot to mention in my vlog:
Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead
Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

What'd you receive this past week? Leave a link below and I'll be sure to check it out!

P.S. Count how many times Lexie says the word "awesome!" (Hint: the number is embarrassingly high.)



Lexie, you have such pretty hair.

ALSO VLOG FOREVER because you rule at it.


Ooh, I'm so looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of The Fine Art of Truth or Dare. :) Great haul.


Hey I just discovered your blog thanks to Stacking the shelves and i'm now following your blog and your youtube channel :).
Congrats on doing your very first vlog it was a great vlog. I also want to do vlog but i'm a little afraid because i'm french so I don't have a good accent ^^. But maybe I'll do it one day.
You got really good books this week !
I read Insurgent last week but I was a little disappointed by it :/.
I heard amazing things about Code name verity it sounds like a very moving book.
I hope you'll like these books and happy reading !


You're so cute, Lexie! I love your hair. xD And wow, you've got tons of great stuff. I'm so jealous you've got COLD FURY, INSURGENT, and I HUNT KILLERS. Those three are some I really want to read...

Happy reading! :)

Drop by my Showcase Sunday?

P.S. You probably don't know me, but I was from inkpop. :D INKIES UNITE!

Sam (Realm of Fiction)

You will LOVE Finnikin of the Rock! Or at least, you better love it... ;) I'm guilty of not yet having read Froi but I'm sure you won't regret buying the sequel too.

And by the way, I adore your accent! :D


I'm so glad that you were so excited for Finnikin of the Rock! That poor mailman! :O And Insurgent was definitely worth it! It wasn't as good as Divergent, but it was definitely really awesome. The Fine Art of Truth or Dare wasn't as good as I thought it would be because it doesn't really focus that much on the romance. :( Great haul!

Check out my Stacking the Shelves!


It's OK. I scare mailmen too.


I heard Code Name Verity is really good. :) I hope you like it! Oh my God, you're just too cute! Your hair is just gorgeous.

Hold a Cold Fury giveaway!

I scare my mailman too. o_o All the time. I'm fairly certain the UPS guy thinks I have some sort of mental issue. Or that I have a crush on him...


I Hunt Killers looks awesome! Enjoy :)


Great haul! So many amazing books to dive into :) Insurgent was great! I hope you enjoy everything.

Shortskie's Shelf


I'm gonna be reading Finnikin soon. It's in my physical book stack.

I have a copy of I Hunt Killers too but it will probably be awhile before I get to it!

Nice haul this week and great first vlog.

Anyway, great haul! Have fun with all those books! (Also: Finnikin of the Rock. I'm jealous, dammit)

Sarah (The Book Life)

That was probably the most adorable thing ever and you should probably just do vlog's all the time now! I'm actually planning to read Cold Fury this week, so I'm glad to know you thought it was decent. Also, and don't kill me for this, but I've had Finnikin on my Nook forever. Now that I have seen it's worth scaring the mailman over, I'm going to read it soon :0)

P.S. I'm glad you love the Unicorn stickers!


OMG!! You are so freaking cute!! This vlog was awesome!! Great books hon!! Hope you enjoy them, especially Finnikin of the Rock!!! Cold Fury sounds really awesome!!!


Oh wowzers great haul! And super cute vlog! :) I've hear SO MUCH about Finnikin it's unreal I'm so so curious! And I Hunt Killers is super fun - like a freaky YA Dexter! :D Great haul, chicky!



I absolutely love this vlog, just saying. And you got some great books in the last few weeks! You must do a vlog every single week, even if it's just to talk about some of the books you read or something, because you're just so CUTE and FUNNY. :)

P.S. I'd love to get my hands on a copy of Cold Fury. It looks AWESOME ;)
