Stacking the Shelves: The One With the Book Buying Ban

Stacking the Shelves is a meme run by Tynga’s Reviews where we share our book hauls!

I have been on a book buying ban and lasted an amazing 15 days without buying a thing. I did get books from Netgalley during this time. I was doing so good! But of course then there had to be an Entangled Brazens sale. I could not resist. They were ninety cents! (and yeah, now I have Thrift Shop running through my head). I am back on my ban now — and may have walked out of the library with 6 books when I went there for just ONE hold.

Moral of the story? I have a book hoarding problem I think! But at least I’m not buying anything. Here’s my haul! And, sorry, was too lazy to put covers. =/


The Tyrant’s Daughter by J.C. Carleson: Super intrigued by this one!

Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker: I’ve heard a lot of good things! Can’t wait to check it out

Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott: Loved the Collector by her, and I’m looking forward to this one too!

Lady Thief by A.C. Gaughen: So I need to read Scarlet before this one but I’ve heard raving reviews and I love Robin Hood stories!

99 cent Brazens:

In Bed With Mr. Wrong by Katee Robert: Both Jessica and Chelsea told me to get this! So of course I did.

Against the Wall by Rebecca Zanetti: Cowboy. Enough said!

Seducing Cinderella by Gina L. Maxwell: MMA fighter! That means it has to be good


The Darkest Kiss by Gena Showalter: The second in the Lords of the Underworld series! Can’t wait for more sexy men! For our virtual book club read!

Shadowland by Meg Cabot: The first in the Mediator series and has been one that I’ve meant to read since before I started blogging!

Nowhere but Home by Liza Palmer: I’ve read nothing but amazing reviews about this one!

Roomies by Sara Zarr, Tara Altebrando: So excited to read this one! I love books that bring back college memories!

Love and Other Perishable Things by Laura Buzo: I didn’t know about this one until I read Jamie’s review of it. Sounds so good so I had to grab it when I saw it!

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon : The 3rd in the Outlander series! This was the hold I went to pick up, haha. I read the other 2 forever ago and am excited to read more about a certain Scotsman. 🙂

Here’s to a few more weeks of book buying ban! Fingers crossed and wish me luck. I’ve got a ton of books to read though!

  1. I got Against the Wall & The Tyrants Daughter too! Also, that new one by Victoria Scott? I thought the title was Fire and Blood and said as much on like 50 blogs LMAO

    Roomies was super cute too!

  2. Yay In Bed With Mr. Wrong! I loved that one! So cute! I also have Against the Wall and Seducing Cinderella! Love me those Brazens! Yay for Fire and Flood! I can’t wait to dive into my copy! And I do love Ten Tiny Breaths like WHOA.

    Happy reading girl!

  3. Nice haul of things. I love those Brazens. Brazens are awesome. If it has an MMA fighter, it has to be interesting. Come check out my stack as well.


  4. I just broke my book buying ban, but only to get books that I’ve already read and wanted copies of! I was really good during the ban, but that hasn’t stopped me from acquiring library books, books from friends and books from publishers. Still, I’m attempting to go back on the ban for next month — good luck to us both!
