Stacking the Shelves #55

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by TYNGA'S REVIEWS that features the books we bought, borrowed, were gifted, and were given for review.


I was lucky enough to win a 3 month subscription to OwlCrate in a giveaway from author, Tiffany Duane. (Thank you so so much if you happen to see this!) I was super excited to receive this in the mail. It is my first subscription box ever. I didn't know OwlCrate existed until a month or two ago.
This is March's 'Writer's Block' themed box.
The synopsis for 'The Serpent King' doesn't really interest me but I've been hearing semi-good things about it. I was most excited about the Out of Print Banned Books socks! I've been wanting to buy a t-shirt or something else from them forever but just haven't had the funds. All the little goodies you get with the book are awesome and it's totally worth buying just for the surprise! I will definitely be continuing my subscription.
Next month's theme is 'Dystopia'! 

For Review


I picked up a hardcover of 'The Cuckoo's Calling' at a Dollar General for $3. I was surprised to see it there so I went ahead and grabbed it.

I got all of these books below for $3.18!

A few picture books for my daughter...

Lots of juvenile chapter books for when she's older...

and a couple for me.


What did you add to your shelves this week?


  1. I feel like I NEED those socks! That's amazing! I know some people have really loved Serpent King so I'm pretty interested in that one.. Yay - used books! That's a wonderful haul. My sisters loved the Maisy books so much when they were little!

    1. They have lots of Banned books listed on one sock and have them blacked out on the other! I love them! :)

  2. I am so tempted by the subscription boxes. I love all of the extras and swag in the box and I really want to read The Serpent King. You picked up a lot of great books this week. Your daughter is going to have a great library. Enjoy and have a great week!

    1. She is already book spoiled considering that I have a ton of juvenile/MG/YA books. She has her own shelf that is already filled with board books and picture books. She's one lucky girl! Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Owlcrate looks fun, and I'm curious what the dystopia theme will be like. That could be cool!

    1. I haven't been paying much attention to dystopia lately and have no idea what is new so it's going to be a total surprise! I honestly can't wait! :)

  4. I love seeing the Owlcrate boxes and what they contain. I hope you love all of your new books.

    1. I stalked a lot of bookstagrams when I found out about them! Everyone is so creative with how they photograph them! :)
      Thanks for stopping by, Grace!

  5. You got Owlcrate! I only had the February box and really loved it :)

  6. I loved The Serpent King and Ink and Bone! I was unsure about the Serpent King at first, but man was it a great emotional read. Hope you enjoy them!

  7. I am looking forward to the new Rachel Caine series. Hope you enjoy.
