Stacking The Shelves [4]


Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Guidelines resume:

  • Create your own Stacking The Shelves post. You can use my official graphic or your own, but please link back to Tynga’s Reviews so more people can join the fun!

  • You can set your post any way you want, simple book list, covers, pictures, vlog, sky is the limit!

  • I am posting Stacking The Shelves on Saturdays, but feel free to post yours any day that fits you.

  • Visit Tynga’s Reviews on Saturday and add your link so others can visit you!

  • Visit other participants link to find out what they added to their shelves!

I didn’t have time to record a vlog this week (sowwwy!) but I did add two books to my shelves so I took a quick picture =)


First I got a surprise from Tor books,
Royal Street by Suzanne Johnson [Amazon | Book Depository]
& I won a copy of
Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong [Amazon | Book Depository]
over at Moonlight Gleam’s Bookshelves!

Also, many of you asked for Lily-Ann updates so I’ll post pictures of her every now and then ^^

  28. This is my 1st week participating in Stacking the shelves.

    I still haven't gotten Insurgent, I feel so ashamed that I haven't yet had the change to pick it up.

  29. Oh gosh, my youngest niece is 8 months; I had forgotten just how teensy newborns are! :) She's beautiful and I'm loving her name.

    I read Royal Street last month & really enjoyed it! I hope you do too!

  30. So beautiful!!! Enjoy her, they grow up so fast!
    No new books this week still trying to catch up on my TBR pile.

  37. Okay, I want that dress your baby is wearing when she's in the arms of her granddad! It is adorable!! :O

    Happy Reading! :D

    1. ITs super cute indeed. It's a bit too big for her right now, but it only means shell be able to wear it that much longer!

  38. Just posted my first Stacking The Shelves, but I'm planning to do it more often. Thanks for creating this great meme!

    @Tynga Your daughter is so cute! I love the picture of Lily-Ann with her Dad. :)
    Royal Street is waiting for me to open its pages too, but other books are calling louder at the moment. ;)

    @Christine I haven't read any of these books, but I have been considering the Divergent Trilogy. I might just try that one. :)

  39. She is sooo beautiful! the pictures are amazing!

    Well for the books, I loved Royal street and frostbitten sounds great, I'm just so far from the 10 for now lol. Happy reading!

  40. What a lovely pictures of Lily-Ann. She is adorable :D

    And for the books, they are looking great! I hope you enjoy reading them :D
    Happy sunday!


  41. Great haul, Tynga! Lily-Ann is beautiful! And I hope you enjoy Slated, looking forward to your review!

    Also, I can't see my link showing up, and I don't want to keep submitting, let me know if it doesn't show up - ta!

  42. What a cutie pie!! Daddy looks so proud and happy, awww. Loved, dressing up my little girl in dresses and girly clothes, enjoy doing it! Pretty soon she'll be telling you what she wants to wear...:p

    I started Royal Street but didn't get too far.. It started off fine, but I wasn't into the whole hurricane thing (long story). Great selection from Christine's pile. Slated is something I need to look up, never heard of it. Thanks!

    1. Well I hope she likes Winnie the Pooh because I have a lot of that lol

  43. Oh, my - I so love that baby-stage when all they do is snuggle on your chest all day long (and nurse and poop!). Ahhhhh, that is my favourite stage.

    Royal Street is on my Wishlist, and I really must get to the Women of the Otherworld series!

    Slated looks good, too - so I'm adding that one to my Wishlist. I already have The Selection and Insurgent on there.

    Here's the link to my STS:


    1. I actually find the nursing pretty hard. She drinks just a bit at a time so shes always hanging onto my breast lol

  44. What an amazing cutie pie she is!!!
    (Great books too!)

  45. Frostbitten looks pretty good. The baby is so adorable!! =) oh and I also can't wait to read Insurgent too! I hope you both enjoy everything and here's my IMM
