Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.
This week was a pretty fun week! I didn't get any e-books but I got a couple of things in the mail and I went to the library for the first time in FOREVER. Whether or not I actually can manage to read these books in the time allotted will be something else entirely. But how could I resist checking out books when they are in front of my face? There was also a library sale and I found two books that interested me. I am also taking in a whole crap-ton of books when I return my books because the used bookstore wouldn't take them and the library said they would. So. I am excited about that because I have about 5 boxes of books that I need to get rid of!
On to the books I got this week!
From top to bottom:
Moloka'i by Allen Brennert (I got this for $1.00 from the library sale!)
A Comrade Lost and Found by Jan Wong (Also from the library sale for $0.25!)
Antigoddess by Kendare Blake
(Thank you to Tor Teen for this lovely! I shall be reading it soon!)
Kinslayer x2 by Jay Kristoff
(Yes, that's two copies of Kinslayer. I got one from the lovely Ashleigh at Birth of a New Witch. The other is from LibraryThing's early reviewers program. I am sending one of them to my co-blogger, Lyn.)
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
Dreams of Joy by Lisa See
(I checked both of these out from the library.)
And I got this cute bookish package from Pixie at The Bookaholic! There is a ten dollar gift card to Books A Million, a pack of MLP pins, and these awesome magnetic bookmarks that I absolutely adore and am using already. This is a late birthday gift and she is so sweet. Thanks, Pixie!
