Stacking the Shelves: Moving Castles and Endless Hunts

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews to showcase all the books we got in the past week. Those can be bought, won, gifted, for review, borrowed, print or ebooks... no matter, just share what you got :)

This was a fairly quiet but nonetheless nice week for me! Forgive the late post, I kind of took the weekend off from the internet.

Bought in print

Howl's Moving Castle, by Diana Wynne Jones
The Wilde Hunt, by Karen Mahoney (signed)

I've wanted to read something by Diana Wynne Jones for a long time and have meant to see the anime even longer (I've seen parts but never the whole thing). So here's my chance :) I love the new cover!
The Jennifer Wilde comic is something Karen's been talking about on her blog for a long time so when it was finally in print I just had to have it! It's about a young woman solving murders with the help of Oscar Wilde's ghost. You can get it from her site and she'll even sign it :) Thanks again Karen! Also for the two pretty stickers :D

For review

Endless, by Amanda Gray

I'm on the tour for this one and I'm very excited to read it! The cover is a real beauty and it's about past lives and Romanov Russia and mesmerization.


Buried Secrets, by Emme Rollins
Blood Past, by Samantha Young

Buried Secrets is a New Adult dark suspense about a girl trying to solve the mystery surrounding her twin's murder. It sounds like it's less focused on the romance than many other NA books at the moment so I thought I'd give it a try. Blood Past is the second book in Samantha Young's Warriors of Ankh series and I've been meaning to read it for over a year! I really enjoyed the first book!

That's it for me :) Have you heard of/read any of these books? What did you think? Also, link me to your own book hauls so I can check them out :)


  1. Eeep! Howl's Moving Castle! Does it have illustrations?

    LOL I admire you. I could never stay away from my GR profile and I obsessively check my email account.

  2. Fantastic haul! I looooove the cover for Endless ♥ that is just stunning! Howl's Moving Castle is definitely on my wishlist & TBR shelf :D I agree, that new cover is brilliant! I really dig the colours and the big artsy letters really draw you in - I'm already looking forward to your review hun ;)

  3. Great Haul I love Howl's moving castle, but the movie is a lot different from the book of course that happens a lot but still (:

  4. Howl's Moving Castle!!!! <333 I love the new cover too!
    The Wilde Hunt looks fantastic as well :)
