Stacking The Shelves (23)

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's a fun way to share what books we recently added to our bookshelves.

*All titles link to Goodreads*
 
 
For review:
 
Nomad by J.L. Bryan (ARC)
 
-A very special thanks to J.L. Bryan for sending me a copy of his upcoming release, Nomad! You guys, I cannot explain how pumped I am to start this book--the synopsis is so RAD and you should definitely check it out! Also, J.L. Bryan is giving away a copy on Goodreads, so you should totally go enter his giveaway HERE.
 
 Bought:
 
Once Upon a Darkness by Aria Kane
Once Upon a Darkness swag
The Portable Poe by Edgar Allan Poe, Edited by Philip Van Doren Stern
Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey
 
-I had the pleasure of attending the lovely Aria Kane's (A.K.A. Sarah Nicolas) book launch party last week, where I picked up a signed copy of her novel, Once Upon a Darkness! I'm so excited to read it--it's got zombies in it and a kickass chick!
 
I have a whole shelf dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe and I already have several of his books, but when I came across a used copy of The Portable Poe, I felt compelled to buy it. It seems I've started a tradition of collecting different editions of his works...
 
So excited to get Ashes on the Waves!!!!!! I've had this book on pre-order for A LONG TIME! The book is based on Poe's poem, Annabel Lee. Can you tell I'm a Poe fiend? Ha!
 
I splurged and got myself a Nook HD! I love it. I previously had the oldschool 1st Edition Nook, so I figured I was due for an upgrade. =)

  6. Good for you picking up a gift for yourself!! I need to splurge on myself soon! I've been in the market for a new Kindle or Nook just for the HD factor. Love the white boarder on the Nook, makes covers pop!
