Stacking the Shelves (1): January 1-17

I’ve always been a big fan of book haul photos and posts shared by fellow bloggers, so I’m pretty excited to be taking part in my very first Stacking the Shelves post today featuring books I’ve received so far this month.

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!

Many thanks to Book Outlet for their amazing Boxing Day sale! I managed to snag all of the books pictured for less than $35 and that included shipping!

Next, we have a whollllle bunch of ARCs!! Look at all of these beauties! Some are borrowed, some are gifted from generous friends and one is from a fabulous publicist and her team that I’ve gotten to know over the past few months! Many thanks to Bloomsbury for the AMAZING Lion Heart ARC, Heather for the HarperCollins ARCs,  and also to Kristina at Gone Pecan, Jaime at Fic Fare and Nikki at There Were Books Involved for your fabulous generosity!

I put myself on a six month book buying ban a few days ago (more on that below), but thankfully I squeezed this purchase in at the last minute! I can’t wait to read these two and have my entire world shattered.

So…about that book-buying ban! I know, six months may as well be SIX YEARS when it comes to not being able to buy books. Here’s the thing, I reallllllly wanted a new blog design so I struck a bargain with my husband and told him that I would put myself on a self-imposed buying ban in order to hire a designer for a custom blog.

In my mind the trade-off is totally worth it because I have the most gorgeously new blog to debut to all of you on Monday! Anna at Anna Marie Moore Web Designs, is not only a seriously talented designer, but she’s also super kind and provides amazing service. She gave me a little snippet of my new blog to share with you all! Take a look…
