Stacking the Shelves #9


Stacking the Shelves button

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews that lets us share what we've added to our shelves.


I was super excited to get this book! I've been eyeing it for ages and it was highly recommended so I couldn't resist not getting it anymore. I've already finished and it's so good so I lent it to my cat. I think he's enjoying it ;) I also may have already ordered the next book.

Angelfall with Ripple

Angelfall by Susan Ee

This one's stunning! The title glows gold when it's under the light. I wasn't expecting it to be so huge and heavy but it's got beautiful coloured illustrations inside!

Percy Jackson's Greek Gods with Ripple

Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods by Rick Riordan

I actually had another book in this order but it came damaged so I had to make a replacement order. I'm still waiting for it to come but hopefully it's on its way so I can show it next week!

What did you guys add to your shelves this week?

  1. Your cat is such a handsome cutie patootie, Eileen! (Pretty please let him know). So glad you (and your cat) enjoyed Angelfall! It was one great read! I hope you get your replacement quick, it sucks when books arrive damaged.

    1. Thanks Naban! I will definitely let him know ;) It totally sucks but the bookseller's being very helpful with everything so I guess it's ok.

  2. Your cat is guarding your books and he looks like he wants to hog the spotlight. Angelfall is so good. I enjoyed that book. Great stack.

  3. So many people have told me that ANGELFALL was amazing. I have it, but haven't read it yet. I'm hoping to read it soon. My cat, Tiger, ends up in a lot of my posts. Mostly because he's nosy, lol. Last week's StS he made it into the picture, but not this week. Have a great weekend!

  5. Angelfall really was amazing! I still need to read book two but I was trying to wait until the others are out to do it.

    I love the illustrations in the new Greek Gods book, so beautiful and of course Percy's commentary all all the gods and their stories is pretty fun too.
    Congrats on both of these great books!

    1. Yep I couldn't believe its size when I first saw it but I guess there's bigger room for the pretty illustrations :) I hope you get to read Angelfall soon!

  7. Angelfall and World After are both fantastic/amazing! I love how your cat's eyes are straight on the pages. Also, wow, he's a really good model.

    1. Hehehe thanks! It was very good timing on my part lol. I can't wait to get started on World After! But I'm also dreading the wait for the third book...argh.

      Delete
    2. Omg yes. I finished World After and then just sat forlornly for awhile wishing the third book was out. And then I added books 3,4,5 to my to-read pile on goodreads, lulz.

      Delete
    3. Hahahaha I have the third one on my TBR list but I have a feeling I'll be adding books 4 and 5 to that list after I finish World After ;)

  8. Yay for Percy Jackson! I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. And I've been really curious about Angelfall. Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Aww! Your kitty is so sweet! Ours is my grandpa's old cat and she's just mean and nasty. She has moments, but you're still fearful to pet her! LOL!

    LOVED Angelfall! Gaga over that series and cannot wait for book 3!! Happy Reading!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Thanks!! I might hold off on reading World After until it's closer to the release date for book 3. I can just imagine the tortuous wait for it :(

      Delete
  13. Huh. I keep seeing awesome reviews for Susan Ee's books, but I have not read her books. The covers are great ;) I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous weekend :)

  14. Your cat looks hooked on Angelfall. I've had it on my Kindle for a while but not gotten around to reading it yet. Loving the Percy Jackson cover.

  15. I really loved Angelfall too!! It's the best angel book I've ever read so far. ;-) I would also like to read some more of Rick Riordan! I've only read one of his books so I'm pretty far behind, right?! ;)

    1. I'm excited to get into World After but probably not until it's closer to book 3's release date so I don't have to wait as long haha. The PJO series is pretty awesome! I especially enjoyed the last 2 books :)

  16. I really have no excuse to why I haven't read Angelfall yet, bought it ages ago and still haven't gotten around to it. :( Glad you enjoyed it though! Happy reading! :)

  17. Hey, it's Julia. I own a German Blog but right now, I'm sooo addicted in English Blogs. I just found yours and it's really really cute and I like your book taste!
    So, I started following and you :)

    Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods sounds so good to me. Is it about Greek Goods and all the other stuff concerning Greek myth?

    1. Thanks so much Julia! I wish I understood German so I can read your posts :(
      Yep it's in Percy Jackson's view so it's everything he knows about Greek mythology!

  18. Your cat is so cute! I love how she poses for you. I have just started the Percy Jackson series and I am really enjoying it so far. I hope you enjoy your reads this week :)
