Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, which is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. You can read more about the creation of Stacking the Shelves by visiting the official launch page here.
I’m a little later than usual in making my StS post for this week, but I’ve been dealing with a troublesome laptop today that finally necessitated going in to Best Buy to have Geek Squad take a look at it. The guy got it so it can connect to the internet, but I’m going to have to do a file backup and then restore it to factory settings because it just isn’t running right. I will most likely wind up having to purchase a new laptop, which is not necessarily a bad thing because I have had this one for several years now. Anyway, if I’m sort of absent this next week, that’s why!
Moving along, here’s what I added to my shelves this week.
- Croak by Gina Damico (e-book, on sale for $1.99 from Amazon)
- Hide & Seek by Katy Grant (I actually bought two copies of this for my school library, as I forgot to add it to the book order)
- The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer
- The Dark Unwinding by Sharon Cameron (a surprise from Scholastic! Thank you, thank you, thank you! ♥)
I also purchased the 3-disc DVD version of The Hunger Games from Target, AND received my new medical card in the mail! I’ve been without health insurance for over five years, so this was particularly exciting. :)

I’d love to read Croak! Many other bloggers have been raving over it, and th cover certainly looks very special! Enjoy your week reading Merin, and I’ll be looking out for your reviews :D
I absolutely loved Croak, so would definitely recommend it. It’s one of my top books read this year, hands down! I want a paperback copy of it because the cover is so spectacular, but the Kindle deal was too good to pass up. :)
Ooh Croak! I’ve been wanting to read that one! I won some swag and a necklace about that book!! Have fun reading!!
Here’s My StS!

I loved Croak, so couldn’t pass up the Kindle deal, even though I really want to buy a paperback copy for that awesome shiny cover. :)
Yeah! It does look really great. I need to get my hands on a copy soon! :)

Thanks! I was pretty excited when I opened the package and saw The Dark Unwinding, especially since I wasn’t expecting it! Those are the best kind of surprises. :)
I’ve had my eye on The Wishing Spell! Computer problems are the worst, but we all have them sometimes! I’m a new subscriber. :)
