Stacked (2): Ghost Stories and Southern Vampires

Welcome to Stacked, a new feature on the blog. Inspired by The Story Siren, Stacked is a place to talk about books I've bought, borrowed and received during the week. Special thanks to my co-blogger Alethea who made several awesome graphics for me, that you'll probably see over the coming weeks. 

Hi, kids! I cannot believe that it's already May. Where is the year going? I hope you all had a good week with lots of bookish goodness. I didn't plan on getting any books this week but a trip to the used book store, the library, and the library book sale had me filling up my shelves. Plus there were a ton of great deals on Kindle books that I just could not resist. So yeah, I have a lot of books to read. At least I've been staying away from NetGalley.  :) Check out my haul and let me know what you think. Click on the book's title to take you to the Goodreads page.


Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley - I have head really good things about this one and my library hold finally came in.

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu - Middle grade book that has gotten a lot of good reviews. Plus, awesome cover.

A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris - Short stories from the Sookie Stackhouse series. Will read this while waiting for my library copy of Deadlocked to come in.

Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill (audiobook - not pictured) - I need a new audiobook to spice up my commute. I have been meaning to read this one for awhile now. So far it's really creepy.

Ebooks Purchased

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (pre-order) - The next book in this series is coming out soon, which is probably why it was $0.99 on Kindle. I just saw Josephine on a panel at the LA Times Festival of Books and really liked her. Glad I was able to pick this one up on sale.

Lords of Deliverance Compendium by Larissa Ione - Love Larissa Ione and had to get this supplement to the Lords of Deliverance series. Another great deal for $0.99.

The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong - I have been wanting to read this one for awhile now and it went on sale for $1.99 and I could not resist.

Ruling Passion (Drake Chronicles #1-3) by Alyxandra Harvey - The first 3 books in the Drake Chronicles in one book for a great price. My friend love this series and I am hoping I do, too.

Inhale by Kendall Grey - After reading a couple of good reviews, I decided to give this romance a chance.


Crafty Chloe by Kelly DiPucchio, illustrated by Heather Ross - Kelly is the author of the picture book Zombie in Love, which I adore. And I know Heather Ross from her fabric designs. This looks like a really cute kid's book about being crafty, which I can totally relate to.

Wolfsbane and Mistletoe Anthology - Picked up a hc copy of this anthology for $2 at the used bookstore the other day. With stories by Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, Carrie Vaughn and more, I think this will be a fun read.

Ghost Stories by Roald Dahl - I have been looking for this book for awhile and I love the cover.

The Secret and Sizzle by Julie Garwood - Bought these for $0.50 at the library book sale. I am a fan of Julie Garwood's highland romances and thought I would give one of her modern stories as well as another historical a try.

How To Be A Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson - I love Nigella and have been looking for this baking book of hers for awhile. Found a really good used copy this week.

What did you get this week? Leave a link and I'll be glad to visit. Anyone else go see The Avengers this weekend? The movie theater was insane but it was worth it. Really fun movie. I still haven't seen Cabin in the Woods. Maybe tomorrow. Happy weekend!


  1. Heehee! I love seeing the graphic up.

    I ADORE Nigella Lawson. I wonder if she'd adopt me if I give her backrubs and feed her rare meat and avocados. I would so totally do it for the food.

    1. you are the graphic queen! i love nigella, too. i wish she was on american television more. i just want to hang out and eat with her and listen to her awesome british accent.

  2. Ooh Graffiti Moon is super cute I loved it! Great haul!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my post. :) A Touch of Dead is a fun read.
