    Oooh fantastic books that Stephanie got this week! I picked up Bitten by Kelley Armstrong a while back because I heard it was set in Toronto… Looking forward to checking it out!
    Evie @ Bookish was also raving about Goddess Interrupted series.. I guess I’ll have to add that to my list too 🙂

    • Stéphanie

      I really enjoyed The Goddess Test. My review is here. I will be reading and reviewing Goddess Interrupted soon so you can come back to see what I think!

      And the Kelley Armstrong are definitely worth checking out. I didn’t have the whole series so I took advantage of the Book Depository sale to complete the series (or almost!)

  2. Alba

    Oh WOW! Stéphanie! Enjoy them all!! >.< I’m actually drooling over Born Wicked 😀 we don’t have libraries here at all to get this kind of books :/

    • Stéphanie

      And that’s what I love about Stacking the Shelves! It’s not only to showcase what we received by post, but also books that we borrowed, or added to our kindle/ipad/ereader!

  3. J.R.

    I got Hemlock this week too! Born Wicked is sitting on my TBR bookcase just waiting for me 🙂 I hope you enjoy all your new lovelies!

  4. Becky

    I want to read Hemlock as well. I have yet to start the Parasol Protectorate series even though I own the first book. Too many books so little time. I also want to read Born Wicked! And Yay for Insurgent! Love that book.

    My StS

    • Stéphanie

      I only read the first 2 books of the Parasol Protectorate series, and this is the 3rd book that I bought. I’m trying to drag out the series because I don’t want to see it finished! Although, Gail Carriger is writing a spin-off series… Awesome!

  5. Marie Ifmarybooks

    Wow so many good books ! I heard amazing things about Hemlock I really need to buy a copy. I just finshed Insurgent I’m a little disappointed because I didn’t like it as much as I liked Divergent but it’s still a good book ! Oh and Born Wicked is awesome ! It’s such a great debut novel and it’s one of my favorite book in 2012 already.
    Happy reading :).

    • Stéphanie

      I’m sad to hear Insurgent was a bit of let down. It often happens with book 2 of trilogies. I’m still very anxious to read it because of how Divergent ended. I know, I know, I bad for not having read it yet but I’ll get to it eventually lol!

    • Stéphanie

      Two weeks worth of books! And I just had to take advantage of the Book Depo sale! I don’t know when I’m going to get to all of them but I will eventually!

  6. Emma

    I must get some of the Kelley Armstrong books:Living with the Dead, No Humans Involved and Personal Demon.

  7. Cindy Smith

    Tynga has it baby Lily doing?

    Stephanie you had an awesome week. I actually got Insurgent as a mother’s day present. Enjoy all your new books you got some great ones 🙂

  8. Jessica@a GREAT read

    OOh nice! I looooved Goddess Interrupted! And of course Kelley Armstrong’s series was incredible! Looking forward to the finale this summer!

    Hope baby Lily is doing well Tynga! Hope you’re doing well too! Remember how it was with my sister when she had her daughter a few years ago, and now my cousin with her baby!

    My Stacking the Shelves will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower 🙂

    I really enjoyed Hemlock. Hope you do to. I’m anxious to get my hands on Insurgent — it sounds great, from everything I’ve read. Enjoy your books!

    • Stéphanie

      I’ve only read the first 2. It was actually my introduction to steampunk and I’ve been addicted to the genre since!

    • Stéphanie

      Averia does have a nice cover! Unfortunately, it is in French. I went to a French book fair this week and I just had to show the pretty books that I bought there too.

  10. GABY

    Hi Stephanie! Great books, I need to get Insurgent soon, but I’m trying not to spend so much money on books xD Maybe next week…

    Happy reading!

    • Stéphanie

      I know what you mean. April and May have been really bad for my bank account. I went book crazy (or crazier than usual) these past few weeks!

  11. Grace Fonseca

    OMG. Stephanie you must be in book heaven. Trying not to be bad. I was this week as well. Will be at BEA next month. So now trying to make room.


    • Stéphanie

      I know, I think I went a little too overboard. My wallet will regret it I think. Oh well, I try to tell myself that I would have bought them all anyways, sooner or later. So I guess it was sooner!

  12. Alexia561

    Nice haul Stephanie! Love Kelley Armstrong, so glad you like her too! And congrats on your contest wins!

    Tynga, it will get easier. Try to rest when you can and remember to take care of yourself as well as baby Lily.

  13. Natalie

    Great book haul Stephanie! I’m drooling slightly over your copy of Hemlock! And I keep meaning to read the series by Gail Carriger! Have you read the first book, Soulless? And was it any good?

    • Stéphanie

      I read the first 2 books. Soulless was my favourite out of the 2, and now I’m ready for book 3, the one that I just bought. This series was really my first forage into Steampunk, and now I’m hooked. I think Gail Carriger did a really good job introducing me to the genre because I keep going back to it!

      If you want to know more, you should really check out Jenn’s reviews here on the blog!

    • Stéphanie

      Insurgent does seem to be on everyone StS either today or last week! Divergent was such a great book that it’s not hard to covet the sequel!

  14. Tasnin

    Soo many great books, the covers are gorgeous, going to add a few of them to my TBR list!

    Happy reading 🙂

    • Stéphanie

      I seem to be stuck in a YA lately, not that there is nothing wrong with that! Hemlock and Born Wicked have been on my lookout for a while now so I’m anxious to finish both!

  15. Tiffany

    I liked Hemlock quite a bit. I have Born Wicked and I really want to read it but unfortunately I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’m also dying to read Insurgent. Enjoy your books 🙂

    • Stéphanie

      I’ve been anticipating those 3 books too so much and now that they are all here, I don’t know where to start! They all sound so amazing. I hope you enjoy them all!

    • Stéphanie

      I’m enjoying Hemlock so far! I got it a few days ago and I haven’t really had the time to read but I’m looking forward to devouring it! I’ll make sure to come by your blog to check out what you got!

  16. Sara M

    Great stack this week! I love Kelley Armstrong and really need to catch up on that series. And I look forward to your review of Hemlock.

  17. Lauren B

    That is a lot of books. You are going to be busy for quite a while Hope you enjoy them all.
    Thanks for stopping by my shelves.

  18. Caro

    Woah, what an awesome mailbox! I’m kinda envious, although it sure gives you the feeling like you’ll never get around to read all of it. oO

  19. Celine

    Ohh, awesome books! I love the Kelley Armstrong series and I’m currently listening to Born Wicked on audio. Insurgent! I want that book!

    Have a great day (:

  20. Michelle

    YAY for Kelley Armstrong. I love her Otherworld Series and cant wait for 13 to be released.
    Insurgent is great but I hated the ending as now we have to wait forever to find out what happens next,

    Here is my Stacking The Shelves

  21. Blook Girl

    I love ALL THE BOOKS! 😉 Hemlock is next on my reading list, though I am DYING to read Insurgent. I really hope you love Born Wicked. It was a unique, refreshing read and I can’t wait for Star Cursed, the second book in the series 🙂

    Happy reading, ladies!

  22. Aylee
