Stacking the Selves #3 : November-December Book Haul

Stacking the Selves is all about sharing the books you recently added to your selves. Wether they are in the form of a paperback, hardpack, ebook, audiobook, or a book you borrowed from your friend or the library and of course review book. It's hosted by Tynga's Reviews!


1.  A bind up of 4 novels (Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Northanger Abbey) by Jane Austen.

I recently bought Pride and Prejudice and I hadn't planned on buying any other of her novels until I read it but then I saw this absolutely gorgeous bind up in a bookstore a few days ago and I just couldn't help myself! Did I mention the pages are gold?!

I had been debating on buying this one for a long time. So many book-bloggers and booktubers rave about how unique and amazing this series is so I finally gave in and ordered it from the book depository. 

3,4. The Iron Queen and The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

I have the first two books in the Iron Fey series sitting on my selves for over a year now so I decided to buy the last two in the quartet and marathon them! The covers are gorgeous and I've heard so many wonderful things about Julie Kagawa's books! Can't wait to start reading them!

5. The One by Kiera Cass

I read The Selection and The Elite about a year ago and even though I liked them I did have some problems with the series. I decided that I would not be continuing it but, since The Heir was announced, so many people have started reading this trilogy and the majority of them loved it so much that it made me change my mind. So, in short, I'm going to be re-reading the first two books again and then jumping into this one!

I finally have it! I'm so excited to finally start reading the last book in the Mara Dyer trilogy! The first two books blew me away. Hope this one has the same effect!

7. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

I am currently reading Shatter Me and I am really enjoying it so, since I already have Unravel Me, I thought I'd buy Ignite Me too and save me the trouble of doing it later on.


Thank you to my family ( most importantly to my mother) for these amazing books!

1. Compulsion by Martina Boone


I started reading On Writing by Stephen King last month and it made a great impression on me. I've never read anything by Stephen King and since Carrie - the only book I own by him- doesn't really appeal to me, I asked one of my best friends to lend me her copy of Doctor Sleep. 


  1. I have heard mixed reviews on Compulsion but I got it this week anyway because it seems very interesting. Am I the only one that doesn't own Snow Like Ashes and My True Love Gave To Me?! Everybody is getting those books and then there is me... This is wrong. I hope you enjoy your books! Have a great weekend :)

    1. I've heard very mixed things about compulsion too but it sounds very interesting either way so I'm very excited to jump into it! I literally got My True Love Gave To Me and Snow like Ashes about 4 days ago so you could say I'm a bit late for the party too :)
      Thank you! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too!

  2. You got some amazing reads this week. I hope you love all of your new books this week. Enjoy them.

  3. Wow, wonderful haul! I've heard amazing things about Snow Like Ashes. Cinder is fantastic, I was once in a really bad reading slump and it got me out of the slump - I really enjoyed it! I have the first two books in the Iron Fey series and I really want to read them soon! :)

    Enjoy your new books! :)

    1. Thank you :D
      So many book-blogs have declared Snow Like Ashes as the 'hidden gem' of 2014 so I'm very intrigued! I am also going to be picking up Cinder really soon! I have high expectations for it from what I've heard!

  4. I really want to read My True Love Gave to me :) I hope that you enjoy it.

    1. I can't wait to read Retribution! And I'm currently flying through Shatter Me - If it wasn't for studying I'd be done by now!
      Thank you! :D

  6. Oh, you have to read Cinder and Snow Like Ashes was nice too :D I have read the Shatter Me trilogy but, sincely, but one was my favorite. Book 2 was meh and book 3 characterization ALONE which was okay but, you know, no action. Oh, I have to read Compulsion and The Knife of Never Letting Go. Awesome haul!
