Stacking The Shelves #7

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's review where we showcase our new books for the week.

Die For Me by Amy Plum
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

I got two books at the beginning of this week! I've been slowing down my book buying as I have so many books on my TBR pile. I think I'm doing alright so far. Hahah. I can't wait to read Die For Me as I've heard such good things about it. My first opinions on it were really bad though as I read two horrible reviews for it and I put it on my mental 'Don't Read' list. Later on all the reviews I saw for it were really good so I put it on my 'Must Read' list and I actually think I might really enjoy it now (: I also got Fifty Shades of Grey which I've actually already finished reading.

What did you get this week?


  1. Nice books! I have seen Die For Me on lots of blogs lately and I have to admit it has made me somewhat curious. Enjoy reading it!

  2. I've read Die for Me but I didn't like it that much. And oh, my mom's read Fifty Shades of Grey too and she thinks it's hilarious. But I don't know... I'm not allowed to read it. ;) Enjoy reading!

  3. Die for Me looks awesome and the cover's gorgeous! My mum is actually finishing off the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Actually, quite a lot of my family are... but I don't think I will. I'm maybe a tad too young. ;)
    Enjoy and happy reading! :D

  4. This is an awesome haul! I'm interested to see what people think of Fifty Shades of Grey as I am on the fence about whether or not I want to read it.

    Thanks for dropping by my Stack!

  5. Ohh Die for Me, this book sounds interesting but I'm not 100% sure about it. I'll have to wait for your review on it!

    Tell me about slowing down! My TBR pile is huge at the moment but I just keep buying books from the book depository. I think I'm addicted to getting packages in the mail!

  6. I really enjoyed DIE FOR ME, so I hope you'll like it despite your initial doubts! Not really sure about FIFTY SHADES OF GREY - I'm somewhat curious about it, but I've also heard quite a few negative things, so I'm still contemplating whether to get a copy or not. :D

  7. I really want to read Die For Me - it sounds like such a good book plus it's set in Paris which means there will be French guys ;)

    Fifty Shades of Grey is apparently really good but naughty :D

    Hope you enjoy them both, Kim <3

  8. Die For Me was an AMAZING book so I really really hope you enjoy that! :) Also, I haven't read the Fifty Shades trilogy, but they're supposed to be really erotic and I'm only 13 so yeah. -.-

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  9. I have an ARC of Die for Me which I still haven't read, I hope you enjoy yours. :)

  10. I have been in two minds whether to read Die for Me or Not even though I have heard a lot of good things about it. Fifty Shades I actually read when it was fan fiction, so I am debating as to read it again the the form it's in now.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  11. Awesome haul! I still need to read Die for me and I'm not sure about the 50 shades series yet!

    Letterbox Love!

  12. What did you think about the first Fifty book? And yeah, similiar here when it comes to Die For Me. In the end I still bought it and the sequel, but haven't read either yet. XD

  16. Die For Me has such a lovely cover! I kind of want to try reading it, just because I keep seeing it everywhere. Probably won't get to reading 50 Shades of Grey, just because it's not my thing. But I hope you enjoy them both! Thanks for stopping by!

  17. I've heard Die For Me is really really good and I really want to read it! I hope you love it :) Check out my shelves:

  19. Great set! I hope you love Die For Me. I really, really liked it. So much so that I even re-read it. And loved it just as much.

  20. Ohhh, DIe for Me looks so pretty sitting there! I really hope you like it since I've heard really amazing things about it, plus the cover is just GORGEOUS! (even if it is a girl in a dress lol) As for Fifty Shades of Grey, well, I'm glad you semi-liked it! There've been some very... unflattering reviews for it around XD My parents would probably disapprove of me reading it though haha! Amazing haul! Enjoy Die for Me :)

  21. I love the cover of Die For Me. I haven't read it yet.

    Btw, I just wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award!
    You can learn more about it here

  22. I've also heard a lot of good about Die For Me... the setting is supposed to be gorgeous, for sure.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I really appreciate every single one of them and try my best to reply to them all (:
