Stacking The Shelves (1): 24th January 2016

Posted January 24, 2016 by BAMF in Features, Stacking The Shelves // 39 Comments

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It is a weekly meme to showcase the books we have bought, borrowed, received for review, or were given as a gift. As well, we will tell you a bit about the past week and what to expect in the upcoming week!

Dani’s Haul

This has actually been a slow week on the book front for me! I only got one physical book: my preorder of WE ARE THE ANTS by Shaun David Hutchinson. I also bought NOBODY’S GODDESS by Amy McNulty because Jamie told me to! I always do what Jamie says because she knows me better than I know myself sometimes.

As for ARCs, I was approved for NOT IF I SEE YOU FIRST by Eric Lindstrom (pub. December 31st 2015) and FLAWED by Cecilia Ahern (pub. March 24th 2016). Whoop whoop! I also received review copies for some of the blog tours I’m participating in: FACSIMILE by Vicki L. Weavil and EVANESCENT by Gabriella Lapore.


Iris’s Haul

I stacked only a single book this week, THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS by Rae Carson, but I’m expecting more next week!


Jamie’s Haul

I’m still officially on a book buying ban for this year, but I splurged and got a paperback copy of VICIOUS by V.E. Schwab before I met her in Michigan for an event. My thinking was, “well, I should have her sign all the books since I’m probably only going to meet her once.” At said event, I also picked up a copy of TIME SALVAGER by Wesley Chu (because same thinking as before). I had a big comic haul where I picked up the first two volumes of CHEW, the fourth volume of SAGA, and two volumes of ATTACK ON TITAN.

I was approved on NetGalley for BURNING MIDNIGHT by Will McIntosh, which releases February 2nd, so I will be reading that this week. I also received the book WYTCHFIRE by Michael Meyerhofer for review from Red Adapt Publishing (thank you!).



Last Week’s Top Stories

This week, we shared our excitement for THE LOVE THAT SPLIT THE WORLD by Emily Henry. Jamie also reviewed NOBODY’S GODDESS by Amy McNulty!

Watch For Next Week

Next Saturday is pretty big for us. We’ll be sharing with your our first ever BAMF Review, a joint review by all three of us of CARRY ON by Rainbow Rowell! This, by the way, includes a video…a big move for all three of us. We talked for over three hours, an hour of which was recorded. Dani is now in the process of editing said video down to a more manageable and less blooper/tangent-filled state, which is quite the adventure for her. (No, she is not a video pro, so she may have less hair at the end of next week…)

Books releasing next week include:


And now…our most exciting news for the next week…

  1. Laura

    I love this feature. Loved hearing what everyone got this week. I’ve placed myself on a book buying ban until I work through some of my TBR pile. So you know, I only bought one book and preordered another 🙂

  2. I’ve read The Girl of Fire and Thorns, read the entire series, it’s one of my favorites! I plan on reading Truthwitch during a read-a-thon next month! Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Sarah Cone

    Great titles in everyone’s book haul; almost all of those are on my TBR so I’m really looking forward to reading all of your reviews.I understand the need for a book ban so your reading pile doesn’t threaten to smother you in an avalanche but how anyone has the will to actually stick to their book ban is beyond me!

  4. Gah i am so ready for the year we fell apart, Vicious, the love that split the world, and shallow graves!
    I have read the first 15 chapters of Truthwitch and it has got me so EXCITED like I NEED MORE!!!!!!!!!

  5. Gaby

    I haven’t read Truthwitch yet but I sure want to do it because it sounds amazing! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  6. Iris, you have The Girl of Fire and Thorns? I’ve wanted to read this for ages! Let me know what you think once you’ve read it?

    I’m intrigued by that title, Dani: We are the Ants.

    Hi Jamie! Not sure if we’ve spoken before… What did you think of Vicious? I’m dying to read it! I have a friend who went to the same event in Michigan – she had a lot of fun.

    Can’t wait for your Carry On review!

    Thanks for the giveaway, ladies! 🙂

    • Hi! I loved Vicious! Vicious is amazing and one of the best books I’ve ever read. Also, who is your friend? Maybe I met her!

      – Jamie

    • I will let you know what I think when I’ve read it! It has been on my wishlist for ages, and it was discounted on a Dutch online store, so I pounced on it. Don’t know yet when I’ll read it, but you’ll be sure to hear about it 😉

  7. Artemis Giote

    No, I haven’t read it yet. I am very excited to read Truthwitch and Arrow.
    Thank you for the chance!!!!!

  8. Celina (celinareads)

    Thank you so much for the giveaway! I really want to read this book, but don’t have the money to buy it. The cover is also so beautiful!

    I’m also so excited for ALL the releases this year.

  9. Sophia

    I haven’t read Truthwitch and I would love to read it! Thanks for making this giveaway intl!
    P.S – I love attack on titan 😉

  10. I would love to read Truthwitch, because I love fantasy novels and the storyline really appeals to me (a story about strong young women)! I have not read any books that had witches in it other than Harry Potter so far, but I would really like to read about other worlds (something totally different). Also, the reviewers loved the book, so I am sure the writing style is great as well!

  11. I’m so excited to read Truthwitch! Can’t wait to see what Susan’s got for this story. Hopefully, it will get translated in Portuguese, but yeah, I don’t want to wait for that to be able to read it lol xD

  12. Ashley R.

    I have not read Truthwitch, but I am jumping with joy and excitement for it! I am thrilled and looking forward to reading it. I know the story is going to be extraordinary! I love reading books that make a plain afternoon into something special, a new reading adventure always makes my day! I cant wait to explore Truthwitch!!!!

  13. I haven’t read any of the books you named, but I’m very excited to read; THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS by Rae Carson and also Truthwitch!!

  14. I have yet to read any of the books from your list, but super excited to get my hands on Truthwitch, The Year We Fell Apart and The Love That Split the World.
    Thanks for the giveaway! : )
