So NYC Comic Con happened last weekend, and I actually had a blast. This is not to say that I managed to see everything I wanted, considering most of the authors (and book freebies) that I did want to see (and grab) were being showcased on the day I wasn’t there. Still, it’s not a bad haul for an hour or two of stalking the book vendors.
Stacking the Shelves
We are all book lovers and the need to share our enthusiasm is sometimes overwhelming. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
If you’re anything like me, you are probably hoarding books and even though you are excited about your latest book arrival, it might be a while before you get to review it and Stacking The Shelves is a good way to express your undying enthusiasm for those titles!

Red Rising by Pierce Brown (Seriouslah…I grabbed this one so fast off the Del Rey table they didn’t even know what hit them!)
The Hammer and the Blade by Paul S. Kemp
Illusion by J. S. Cooper
The Shadow Revolution by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith
The Geomancer by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith
The Griffiths signed two books concurrently, which I thought was real cute. I spoke to them about how I occasionally read books out of order in a series, particularly theirs, and they seemed amused at my babbling. I now have a paperback copy of the first book, with Simon on the cover! I love Simon.
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke (Sounded like an interesting read. Also, Penguin Teen was giving out the cutest tote bags to go along with the book. INCENTIVE!)
Blades of Hope created by Maryam Awan, Musa Awan and Sohaib Awan, written by Paige Hartman (The cover caught my eye immediately. It had mostly female protagonists and a hugely diverse set of characters. Also, martial arts expertise! I cannot wait to see what they’ll do with an animated version of this.)
Also found this being distributed for free on one of the book tables:
The Time Garden by Daria Song
SUCH a beautiful cover. And then I was told it was a coloring book, and I was floored. It’s so pretty!
My sister has been eyeing the coloring book for a while now. I might have to hide it before she starts coloring on it.
