Stacking the Shelves (3) : eBook Splurge, Callings, Acadmies and Mermaids

**"Stacking the Shelves" is run by Tynga @ Tynga's Book Reviews and I'm linking up with some of the great books I found this week.**

Hey Guys!

Good to, you again :) How has your week been? Mine is lovely and I have a bit of a treat this week! There are major Kindle steals to present as well as a few hardcover beauties in this edition of Stacking the Shelves. There are a couple library loans, some freebies and other eBooks I just had to buy. Remember to comment below on which spoil has you the most giddy, and don't be shy sharing your finds this week ;) So without further adieu, I bring you my little indulgence, and in my defence, I really didn't spend that much. Just a bit.Jokes. 

First come the hardcopies, I got 2 paperbacks and a hardback this week:

Hey, there, Miffy!

Those books are:

My Rambles: I'm really excited for all three of them because they each have a lot of promise. Night School was on sale at the BookDepository and The Calling had been on my wishlist for a while now, ever since I read and loved The Gathering, I knew the sequel was a must-have. A month ago while shopping in my local Superstore, I chanced on the Inside Out Omnibus, but didn't think to buy it at the time. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Unfortunately, when my senses returned, the book was no longer available! I mourned the loss, but not for long since they finally put it back on the shelves :D This little baby is a steal at $10 for both books in the series compiled to one, I am very pleased to have it. 

The next books on the list are from my local Library. I snagged:
Looking beautiful, ladies!

A Reflection: I don't know if I'll get around to reading Harbinger, it's creeping me out a little now, to be honest ^_^ However, I'm not giving up without trying first, so stay tuned for that! Both The Vicious Deep and Of Poseidon have been touted as pretty great YA mermaid novels and I'm pretty excited for both, a little bit more for The Vicious Deep, but still, I can't wait. Soulbound looks phenomenal and I'm racing through my other books just to get to it :) Nothing beats the classics with Sense and Sensibility, the graphics in this Marvel adaptation are cute and well-done. Since this will be my first reading of the classic I have high expectations. 

Next are the eBooks! Be warned...


**The ones marked with the double asterix were freebies at the time, not sure if they still are, but I was  blessed enough to snag them then! I told you that the load was hefty, you believe me? There are just so many good books here! I'm certain that I probably won't get to all before school beckons me back, but I'll enjoy every moment of trying. Those without the stars, Dead Radiance, Dante's Girl, Destiny's Fire, Easy, Demons at Deadnight, Sixty Acres and a Bride, The Assassin and the Pirate Lord, The Assassin and the Underworld, and The Assassin and the Desert were purchases that came out of my own pocket, buys that I am very pleased with.

I think I'm finished. What was your favourite find this week, or did you like one of my buys? Feel free to share, I look forward to hearing from you :)

The Truth And Nothing BUT...

Going by FTC guidelines, allow me to point out that all the novels reviewed on this blog were either bought by me, or given by an author or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Those books received from Authors and Publishers will be stated clearly as such, as will the ones purchased by myself. There is no shady business going on; no coercion, bribery or compensation has or will ever be received in exchange for any reviews. These thoughts are mine, wacky as they may be, and my honest opinion is all you can truly expect. Still reading? You should be off checking out those awesome reviews ;)
