Stacking The Shelves: The Simon Pulse Edition!!

Saturday, January 17, 2015

   Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves; books you buy in physical stores or online; books you borrow from friends or the library, gifts, and  e-books!

Bought:


Won:

   I almost bought the first book in the Mara Dyer series on the Book Outlet Black Friday sale but someone had bought it. It was very last copy and it was my number one book on my cart that I wanted. But see how everything just works out so perfectly!! :)

  • Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson | Goodreads

   I've never really been that interested in The Mortal Instrument series and my interest has gone down since I saw the movie. But I guess I will read it now that I have the complete series.

  • The Judy Blume Teen Collection by Judy Blume | Goodreads
  • The Pathfinder Trilogy by Orson Scott Card | Goodreads

  • Puppy Love by Nancy E. Krulik | Goodreads
  • Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz | Goodreads
  • Winger by Andrew Smith | Goodreads
  • UnWorthy by Neil Shusterman | Goodreads
  • UnSouled by Neil Shusterman | Goodreads

   These amazing books are all literally from Simon Pulse even the one that I bought. But oh my
 f r e a k i n g  god. This is one of the coolest things that has happened to me. 

   61 books!!! For free!!

   I was super duper happy when I got the 2 giant boxes. But I wasn't really happy when the stupid USP guy rang the bell. It was super cold and I told him that I'd be right there in a second, I was only going to get my jacket. And then guess what?

   He leaves and the boxes are just there, outside of my house's fence, where people can just come by and steal them.

   Also when I had opened the boxes, I noticed that not all the books were there. I knew because Simon Pulse sent me the Sweepstakes page with all the rules and the list of books I would get. And on the two boxes, one had a label that said 2 of 3 and the other said 3 of 3. And I thought why wasn't there another. I figured it was probably lost or something

   A third box ended up arriving at my house. And so I filmed a video unboxing it. But I do warn you, it was my first video I have ever filmed. And I suck at it right now. And I'd appreciate it if you could give it a thumbs up, or comment, and subscribe. I'm barely going to start my channel and I have very little subscribers.




   Big Thanks To:
Simon Pulse

  1. WOW! You're so lucky! I keep trying to win these huge giveaways but I've never been picked as a winner until now ^^
    Some great titles in those boxes, I also own the whole Mara Dyer series (AMAZING, start reading it asap!) but I still need to read book #3; TMI won't disappoint you as the film did, believe me! I'm a huge fan of Cassandra Clare, even if I start reading her books when I was a little younger, I finished the TMI series this year and it still moved me to tears. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did, really (;

    Happy reading, then, you will be busy for a while I think LOL
