Stacking the Shelves – February 2014 Edition!

Stacking the shelves

Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews

 February has been an excellent month in book collecting. I added a bunch of hardcover editions to my shelve, replacing the paperbacks of some of my favorite series. My personal Read 4, Buy 1 challenge is going fairly well – not only is it allowing me to focus on the awesome books I’ve already owned for years, but it’s also making me incredibly selective of the new books I bring home. When you are only able to pick out a few new titles every month, it really forces you to be picky.

Hardcopies:

Of course the book I am most excited about this month is a signed first edition of Undead Pool by Kim Harrison! I am also really tickled to have acquired hardcover copies of Sara Douglass’ Wayfarer series. The Cabot books were freebies from work and my best friend assures me that I will love them.

ARCs:

   Thank you Netgally and Edelweiss!

Of course I am ecstatic at the opportunity to read the new Richelle Mead, but the book I am most excited about is The Lascar’s Dagger by Glenda Larke. I feel so privileged to have gotten hold of an early copy – I was already planning on reading it the day it came out. She’s one of my all time favorite fantasy authors and I have read and loved everything she’s ever published (including a series I had to have shipped over from Australia).

What books stacked your shelves this month?

    • Thank you – I am glad you liked that one because I’m getting ready to pick it up in a week or so! So far, I think I’m liking them as much as you did. :-)

    • I haven’t actually read the first Mila book yet, LOL. I got a little trigger happy when requesting last month. :] Rachel Hawkins is worth picking up, in my humble opinion. :-)

  1. Awesome Haul this week. Wow where do you work that you get free Cabot books???? I need to see if they have a local branch here ;)
    What a lucky girl you are receive so many awesome ARC’s! I am quite excited that I added The first two books in the Infernal Devices to my bookshelf collection <3 I am only allowed to buy the paperbacks if they are a 5 star rating :)

    • I work for Barnes and Noble bookstore and occasionally we get to take home the books coded as “strips”. I’ve ended up with a lot of awesome titles this way, although I usually end up buying them with the covers if I like them anyway ha ha. It’s one of the coolest perks of working for a bookstore.
      I felt incredibly lucky to get approved for all of those arcs… Although now I’ve got to find the time to read them all! Buying the books with five-star ratings is a brilliant strategy… I’m going to have to see if I can incorporate that into my own buying habits.
