Stacking The Shelves #3

[inspired by Pop
Culture Junkie

Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing
with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the
This week I have received...

The Selection by Kiera Cass from netgalley
Black Dawn by Rachel Caine from Allison & Busby
Saving June by Hannah Harrington from Mira Ink

Clarity by Kim Harrington from Scholastic
Dads, Geeks and Blue Haired Freaks by Ellie Philips from Egmont

I thought this week was going to be quiet and I did not receive these books till Friday and Saturday.  Unfortunately I did not get Black Dawn in time for the Liverpool signing with Rachel Caine, but luckily I am going to York next week to see her again so that will be making the trip up with me.

I got to get all 10 of my Morganville Vampires Books signed (I have book one signed from event a few years ago) and Rachel's husband even drew inside one of them for me :D.  We also got a goodie bag from Allison & Busby with a luggage tag and card holder.  Waterstones also had bookmarks so I got one signed for me and one for Bungle @ Midnight Reads.

I also received this

I got this medal for taking part in a Dream Walk for The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.
It is something very close to my heart and I did this for my Dad.  I walked 9k with some friends from work in our pyjamas.  It was freezing, windy and my legs are feeling it today (Sat) but totally worth it.
We had to follow a route and stick to it, with stewards spread out along the way in case we needed help.  Along the way we had cars beeping us all as they drove past, the stewards clapped us all telling us "well done" and "keep going",  people clapped as we walked past their houses and cheered us on.  It was so heart warming to see these strangers supporting  us and it has completely changed my outlook to others.


  1. Wow, great haul Michelle! Sounds like a busy week too, well done for completing your work, and congrats on getting the Morganville Series signed. Happy reading :)

  2. That walk sounds amazing! I did the Marsden March - a 16mile walk for Marsden Hospital, a specialist cancer hospital a couple of months ago as my Mum is being treated there at the moment and it was fantastic. As you said so many people supported it and sponsored - it was very moving! I hope you get the feeling back in your legs soon!

    Oh, and great haul - The Selection looks good and I've heard lost of postive things about Saving June. :)

  3. I have a copy of the Selection that I still have to read, and Clarity on my Kobo that I have to get to as well lol. Enjoy your books, and it's great that you did that walk in your pjs for a good cause :)

  19. I'Ve been wanting to read that Rachel Caine series for EVERZ!! I really have to get to that. And I still want to read Saving June too! :)

  20. I'm really curious about The Selection. It seems like an interesting book but I've sworn it from my wish-list after all the drama surrounding the author. I wonder what it's really like... hmm.

    1. Must have missed all the dram surrounding the author :)

  21. Ahh The Selection! I want that book so bad! But it doesn't come out in paperback here in NZ till June. So I'm going to have to wait.

    Woww, so I remember reading the first few books of The Morganville Vampire series a few years ago. I stopped because they just weren't my cup of tea. I am shocked to see there are now thirteen books in the series! Wow that's a lot!
