Stacking the Shelves with Marlene [#7]

Stacking the Shelves is a feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews. The aim is to showcase the books we've bought, burrowed, or received throughout the week/month.

Hello, readers!

I'm here with another book haul!
But don't get too excited. I didn't pick up a lot this month.
Still, I'm not complaining. I'm very happy with what I have. :)
Plus, I have big plans for August! ;)
I have $40 in B&N gift cards I want to use. Of course, I'm eager to spend it, but 
I'm patiently waiting for Of Metal and Wishes and Sisters' Fate to release first. 
I'm also going back and forth between other books I want to purchase with this money too. 
Luckily, I still have time to mull it over!

Anyway, here is what I snagged this month:


Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater 

Oh, I devoured this already! 
Although I can't say I was in love with Sinner, I really did enjoy it. 
I may have a review for you in August, but honestly, 
Heather's review says everything there is to say. 
Do check it out! It's lovely and concise!

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (e-book)

The Kindle edition of Attachments is on sale right now. 
At $1.99 this has to be a steal!
I'm so ready to read this, guys! I can't even...

For Review:

The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel, Volume 1 adapted by P. Craig Russell 

Guys, this is the very first book sent to me by a major publisher! 
My first bookmail from HarperCollins -- as a blogger!
If you follow this blog, you know I'm trying to read more of these. I can't wait to dive in, 
especially because it's Neil Gaiman material. Gaiman is new territory for me!
Thank you, HarperCollins!

That's all I have for you today!
I look forward to sharing more next month. :)
Don't forget to link me up to your hauls in the comments. 
I love checking them out!

Have a great week, y'all!

  1. I have Sinner to review and I'm so pumped. Happy reading!

  2. Thanks for the heads up on Attachments. I just downloaded it to my Kindle. I've been debating getting this one and love a bargain. I haven't gotten Sinner yet but do plan to get that one too. Come see what I got at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  3. Love that Sinner cover. I am so eager for Of Metal and Wishes too! I can't wait to read it.

  4. I really enjoyed Sinner and Attachments is my favorite Rowell read so I hope you love it, Marlene! And yay for book mail! :D

  5. I haven't read the series YET, but Sinner's cover is GORGEOUS. I have Attachments, but haven't finished it yet. I think I wasn't in the mood when I started. But need to asap because I LOVE ROWELL <3

  6. Great haul this week, it has three books that I am planning to read very soon. I absolutely love your cover for Sinner, it's gorgeous. I have heard good things about Attachments and plan to get to it as soon as I can. I hope you enjoy all of your books this week :) Here's my STS.

  7. I loved Sinner and I hope you enjoy The Graveyard Book. It was my very first graphic novel and I loved it.

    You can't go wrong with a gift card. Happy shopping!

  8. That cover for Sinner is *gorgeous*. I have only the ARC copy right now (still have to read it), but I may have to invest in the one you have haha. I hope you enjoy Attachments! It's cute and quirky.
    Nothing is better than knowing you have a gift card waiting to be spent. Can't wait to see what you purchase!

  9. I'm so excited to read Of Metal and Wishes! It sounds fantastic!
    Is that the inside cover of Sinner? So freaking trippy! I haven't actually read anything by Stiefvater outside of the amazing The Scorpio Races (I'm a bit afraid to, to be honest), but I have heard so much praise for this one. I may have to reconsider.
    And I snagged Attachments too. Yay! So psyched. :)
    That's so awesome to get your first official mail from a publisher. It definitely can help validate you as a blogger. Glad you're so happy about that!

  10. OH, yay for your first official publisher mailing! That's so exciting, and such an awesome first book to be had! :) And how gorgeous is the jacket for Sinner?!? I didn't love it like I did the previous books, but still a great addition to the series all the same. Attachments was cute, but Fangirl will forever be my favorite RR book. Hope you enjoy all your new reads!!


I would LOVE to hear your thoughts! Comments make my day and I really do read them all:)
