*Stacking the Shelves* Episode # 113 Happy Blogging Anniversary Gizmos Reviews!

Stacking the Shelves for the week of June 15 thru June 21, 2014

Stacking The Shelves is a fun way to show off the books we received over the past week in the hopes that you will find something that you will be interested in reading. As always, it is in no way, shape, or form to be considered bragging or sticking out our tongues at other bloggers. 
If you've been following this blog for any length of time, thank you! Today, (June 21st, 2014) marks my THREE year anniversary of blogging! WOO HOO!! At times, it has been a struggle to do this all without any assistance, but I have somehow managed through blood, sweat, tears, depression, and definite mood swings, to make it this far. 
I would love to do a giveaway to honor of my three years. Perhaps I might even award one lucky commentator their choice of (1) book of their choice. In fact, please feel free to leave a comment about my blog, the books I've been allotted this week, a review I have posted this week, or what you are most excited to read this summer, and I'll randomly pick a winner. Good Luck to everyone!

  1. Interesting selection. The Harvesting looks really good and different. I like that cover a lot. You got some amazing books in your haul this week.

    Books of Love

  2. I love how badass that model looks on the Hannah Jayne cover. Enjoy your books, Shelley! And congrats on your 3 years =)

  3. Happy blogoversary! I think I'm onto my third... ish. I had a break from blogging for a while so I'm not sure if to just count it from when I started! That would make it 4 years in October I think.

    Some seriously amazing covers here, I think my favourite is The Book Of Life, the font is lovely even if the green reminds me of a Disney villian!

    Under The Mountain

  4. YAY! Happy Blogoversary!!! Can't believe it's been 3 years! Feels like longer! I feel like I've known my blogging pals forever really! Even after my first year of blogging which was pretty dark! The crickets were definitely chirping that year!

    Great haul too!! I need to start Harkness' books! I have the first two and the third is ordered. I plan to start the first one at least very soon! And ooooh 6th Grave!! Love Darynda Jones! And Tiger Lily! OMG! That read was just amazing! I loved it in its entirety!

    Hope you enjoy all these new lovelies!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. I've read Tiger Lily and really liked it. I also got The Bodies We Wear for review this week, and I am super excited to read it. I've enjoyed her previous books so I'm hoping this one will be just as good.

    Mind checking out my Stacking the Shelves?

    Oh, and happy blogoversary!!!

  6. Happy Blogoversary! :-) 3 years is impressive! I think you've got a fabulous selection of books this week. Something for every mood, I think! Enjoy!

  7. I am so excited for "The Book of Life" but I'm trying to show a little restraint and wait until closer to the release date to read it. Happy reading!

  8. I really enjoyed the rules of survival. Darynda Jones too. I'm trying to be nice for now with book because I don't have the time to read it's difficult. happy reading!

  9. Congrats on such a big milestone!!!! :) :) :) You have an amazing haul this week too, I didn't realise they had put The Naturals sequel up for review already, might have to grab that one. The Bodies We Were and The 100 Society really intrigue me, very tempted to try those two. I hope you have a great reading week and enjoy all of your new additions :) Here's my STS.

  10. THREE YEARS! Wow. :D Congratulations and Happy Blogoversary! Wishing you many more happy years of blogging to come.

    I snagged The Book of Life too in an attempt to finally force myself into reading Shadow of Night. lol The Bodies We Wear sounds GOOD. Looking forward to reading your thoughts! And oooh Charley! Happy Reading, Shelley!

  11. I was on the fence about downloading The Bodies We Wear, but in the end I decided to pass. Unless I really want it, I am trying to resist the e-galleys these days. I am still so far behind. If you like it, I might change my mind.

    Happy blogoversary!!

  12. I've heard great things about Jus Accardo.

    Congrats on 3 years! Thanks for all the reviews and the hours of hard work!

  13. I haven't heard of any of these books yet, but I hope you enjoy reading them :)
