Stacking the shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's basically a way in which we get to show off the lovely new goodies we got over the past week/month however you decide to do it.

Chasing Desire (Chasing Love #3) by Joya Ryan
Driven by Fate (Serve #5) by Tessa Bailey
I've really been enjoying both of these series, especially Serve, so I was very excited to get both of them. Thank you Entangled Publishing!! Have I mentioned lately that I heart them very much??
So part of my goal for this year is to finish as many of the dozens of series that I have started as I can, some of them having been started well over 2 years ago even (geesh, Sheri! Get it together!!) See back before I started blogging I bought a Nook and at the time I got it I bought dozens of first books in series and read them, loved them, but then moved on to the next series and started that one. I think the only one I finished back in the day had been Fallen by Lauren Kate. Anyway one of those many, many series that I started was The Mortal Instruments. I loved City of Bones and I have all the books except the final one City of Heavenly Fire. Well when we got those $5 coupon emails from Book Outlet a few weeks back I decided to take the opportunity and get myself a copy. Now I did not get scratch and dent I got just a regular copy since I had that $5 off BUT thanks to either UPS or USPS, not sure which one I have to say a great big huge thank you to, I may as well have because THIS is what I got in the mail on Wednesday...
Beautiful right? I had this horrible feeling this was what I was going to find when I opened it because the package was literally tapped shut with big gouging holes in it. On top of that, this book is huge, we're talking over 700 pages huge, and it was crammed into my mailbox. Like I had to pull and tug to get it out. Post Office claims it was most likely damaged by UPS before it got to them but I kind of feel like it was a combination of the two since it was crammed so tight. I should probably try harder to get some sort of compensation but I just can't be bothered. So sadly, I got a new book, but this is what it looks like :(
City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare
Island Escape (The Island #0.5) by Viv Daniels
After reading my friend Danielle @ What Danielle Did Next's review [here] for this novella I was very interested in giving this series a try. I love the idea of a castaway story and seeing people have to dig deep within themselves to survive. As of Thursday at least, this one was a freebie over on Amazon so I figured it was a sign!
So what did you add to your shelves this week? :)
