Stacking The Shelves [#92]/Sunday Post [#24]

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality as a way to share all the books we got during the week!

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. Its a weekly post to showcase what books you got, recap the week, and talk about what will be coming up this week on the blog!


So a few weeks ago in a top ten I mentioned how I wanted The Demon Trapper's Daughter as a book I started but never got the chance to finish due to holds at the library. Well, low and behold, for the first time ever, I found it at my used bookstore. But not just book 1, but 2 & 3 as well! Score!! :D Truly Devious I scored last weekend when it was marked down to $1.99 for a daily deal. And I got the hardcover of Caraval marked down to $7.10 at Barnes & Noble in the discount section!


Thanks to NetGalley & Flatiron Books for this! :D 


Guys, I really have to suggest this book! It's a zombie apocalypse book. It starts a little slow, but its so good. And probably the most realistic in terms of survival in that situation. It's an awesome read!

Ok guys, I know a bunch of you have been interested in the updates on Ana's eye issue. So here's a good one. She got her glasses this week!!! And guys, they look so cute on her! And even better, I really think they are helping! She seems more confident in things now. I genuinely think she was struggling some cuz she was having trouble seeing. Me and James are so incredibly happy that she has her glasses now and she's seeing better. :D 

Besides that, not much else has happened this week. I've been working behind the scenes on the blog. Scheduling posts and whatnot. Also, I decided to join the 2018 Book Blog Discussion Challenge! So let me know if you have any topics you want to discuss! :) If you happen to suggest a topic I use, I'll definitely give you a shout out in the post! :)

As always, there's lots of time to sign-up for the Dystopia Reading Challenge! I'd love to have you! For more info, just click the button.


Also, there's still some time left to sign up for the Red Queen Read-Along! Its low stress, only a few chapters each week. Whether your just starting the series like me, or want to reread Red Queen (and then the 2nd & 3rd books) before War Storm comes out, your all welcome for the read-along! :) For more info, also click its button!

    1. Yes! I was surprised seeing the Hardcover of Caraval in the bargain section of B&N, so I snagged a copy while it was there. Lol. The $7.10 is cheaper than my used bookstore sells hardcovers for ($9-10). I'm definitely just sitting down and reading Caraval and Legendary one right after the other. :D Thanks! You too! :)

    1. Isn't she?!?! Yes! It's definitely a relief knowing they are helping with her vision! Thanks! You too! :)

  8. Oh Anna looks adorable in her glasses!! And YAY they are helping! I can't imagine being so little and having vision problems-you don't realize something is wrong and you can't really explain it. It would be terrible!

    1. Right!! yes!! Right! Like she knew her eye hurt sometimes when she tried to focus on stuff. But she couldn't really explain it except for saying ow and pointing to her eye. :( Poor baby. I'm so glad her eye doctor was able to figure out what was wrong and get her some glasses. She really seems to be seeing better! :)
