Stacking the Shelves (1)


STSmall

 Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted at Tynga's Reviews. It's pretty damn awesome.

Hey guys! This is Wake Up at Seven's first Stacking the Shelves, so bear with us.

Here's what Kaede got this week:

Bought:

 Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1) Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) The Goddess Legacy (Goddess Test, #2.5) Nevermore (Maximum Ride, #8)


Manga:

B.O.D.Y., Volume 11


ARCs:

 In Between Days The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #1)


Sarah got:

Girl of Nightmares (Anna, #2) Academy 7 Tell The Wolves I'm Home


Sarah is a dirty, diiiirty e-book buyer, so she doesn't have any whimsical pictures to share. But Izzy does!

Library:

The Book of Blood and Shadow Starters (Starters and Enders, #1) Legend (Legend, #1) Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1) Imaginary Girls The Iron Daughter (The Iron Fey, #2) The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey, #3)


(Those two Iron Fey books are for rereading purposes, so I can read The Lost Prince.)
 

Okay, so Meagan Spooner was hosting a contest for her new book, Skylark. Everyone who entered got AT LEAST a postcard. I got my postcard, and I was like, "All right. I guess I didn't win anything."

THE NEXT DAY....

I got an envelope in the mail with a Skylark sticker. Enclosed was a note that said:

This is true. I asked her on Twitter about it, and then she answered.

For you non-believers, here's a screenshot:



SOOOOO... she sent me a bunch of stuff! Just goes to show that being nice can get you very far.

Here it is, placed in its temporary home next to my Stamp Collection. (For those of you who have seen my Goodreads profile... yeah, I WASN'T KIDDING.)


Two signed Skylark bookmarks, two temporary tattoos, and a signed bookplate.


Completely separate from that, I also got a signed Remembrance jumbo bookmark. :)

Finally, I got an ARC copy of Secret Letters by Leah Scheier from Jen's ARCycling program. Click the link if you're curious. And hopefully you'll donate to her program? :)

So that's all for us this week. Make sure you leave a link to yours down below so we can visit you!

And of course, don't forget to enter our end of summer giveaway. :)

    1. Fufufu. If you're interested in B.O.D.Y., I'll warn you that it isn't finished. Viz only published 10 volumes, leaving out five. -__- I really hope Nevermore's good. I WANT FANG AND MAX. Not Dylan. Nu uh. Hope you enjoy The Lost Prince! I'm loving it. ♥

  5. Aw, that is so nice of Meagan Spooner to send you something extra! And nice of you, too, to follow up. :) I don't know how to feel about The Lost Prince; it feels weird imagining baby Ethan as the guy on the cover, but I generally enjoyed The Iron Fey series so I'll definitely be reading. Hope you enjoy it! And thanks for stopping by my STS! The dragons in Seraphina are proving to be quite an interesting read so far. :)

  6. Hey i'm a new follower :). OMG you got so much awesome books !
    I read Throne of Glass last week and LOVED it ! The 4 prequel novellas are even better though :).
    I've read Daughter of smoke and bone last year but I was a little disappointed and I only liked the first half of the book :/. But I loved the fact that it's set in Prague it's so unique.
    And i'm so jealous you got The lost Prince ! I'm a huge fan of the iron feys series and I can't wait to start this spin off series.
    Happy reading !

    1. I presume that your comment is directed for me, no? Seeing as the books you mentioned are the ones I got this week. If it's not, sorry. ._.

      I'm glad you loved the Throne of Glass! I can't wait to read it. >:D That's sad to hear about the Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I'm still excited for it. And when The Lost Prince comes out, you must. Read. It. Must!

    1. Right? BUT ISABELLE DOESN'T SEEM TO LOVE THEM ALL THAT MUCH. And I can't imagine why. Those books are awesome. I so squealed over The Lost Prince when I was approved via NetGalley.

  14. Nice book loot :-) Hope you enjoy them all. Daughter of Smoke & Bone is amazing, as is Imaginary Girls!

  16. Wonderful stack! Congratulations on the Meagan Spooner Swag, Isabelle! Kaede, I hope you enjoy Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Throne of Glass as much as I did :-) Izzy, Under the Never Sky's good! I enjoyed Legend and the Iron Fey novels too and I'd love to read Starters and The Book of Blood and Shadow.
    Happy reading ladies...and Sarah, I'm sometimes a dirty e-book buyer too ;-)

  18. That's a lot! *scrolls up and looks again* Don't worry that it's your guy's first Stacking the Shelves, you did a lovely job! :) I haven't even done any memes! Hahahaha. And you're making me jealous of Throne of Glass. *-* wants. See that face? Me wants. *-* (okay I'm getting cheesy so I'll wrap it up) I haven't read B.O.D.Y. manga yet. Is it any good?

    1. If you're okay with discontinued manga, than yeah, I think B.O.D.Y. is fairly decent. Huh. Your 'me wants' face reminds me of the dead face. x_x <-- Or something like that.

      Hehe.

      When you get to it, hope you enjoy the Throne of Glass. :D It's damn good.

      Delete
    2. I will see to it. Most of the mangas I'm reading are still continueing but a discontinued one is fine as well. :)

      Yep. I'm dying to get the book! XD X_X
      Okay now I'm super jealous. :0 hope to see a review of it soon. :)

    3. Heh. Also, an ARC review of Throne of Glass was published earlier this month, courtesy of Isabelle, if you're interested. I most likely won't be posting a review, since one is up already. Sorry for the inconveniene.

      And so you say you don't mind discontinued manga? Then darling, YOU. MUST. READ. B.O.D.Y.

  19. OMG!! SO MANY BOOKS!! I've heard great things about Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but still have to read it. AHH!! Throne of Glass & Nevermore!!! SO JEALOUS!!! Ohhh & The Goddess Legacy! The Lost Prince & Girl of Nightmares = AWESOMENESS!! SCORE! I've never heard of Academy 7, but it sounds very interesting. Starters sounds pretty interesting. I loved Legend & Under the Never Sky!
