Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews, where bloggers share recently bought, borrowed, won, and gifted books (print or ebooks)!
Last month, the amazeballs National Bookstore organized a trade show event for us bloggers where they shared with us some of the upcoming titles that will hit their shelves this year and some awesome bookish events that I'm really excited about! Anyway, after that they gave each of us a huge loot bag with books. And then they brought out more free books! Pretty sure my face was like *____* the whole time lol. Here are the books I got that day:
So I finally got Allegiant and have completed the trilogy! I've yet to read it though (I'm bad with series-enders) and I have to re-read the first two books, anyway. I think I'll get to that before the movie comes out on March, so that's really soon. In the loot bag I mentioned earlier I got Rebel and Ask Again Later but I traded the latter for Steadfast because I couldn't resist the pretty cover. So now I have to get copies of Reboot and Spellcaster. *looks at wallet* *weeps*
From the book pile I also got City of Bones: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion and Lighthouse Island. The movie companion looked too good to pass up so I just grabbed it - and I also really loved the movie so it'd be great to see more of what happened behind-the-scenes. I already leafed through it but I've yet to read it in its entirety. Lighthouse Island, on the other hand, is a post-apocalyptic dystopian novel, and I'd read any one of those. *not pictured* is Never Fall Down which is YA historical fiction. I've heard good things about that one so yeah, grabbed!
I'm obviously trying to drag out my January book haul. Yep, there's another part coming next week! I am officially on a book buying ban now because I have movies to watch (Vampire Academy, Robocop, X-Men, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Book Thief, etc.) and book signings to prepare for.
What books did you guys get this week? Or maybe even last month, if you're a procrastinator like me? XD Leave links to your own book hauls in the comments below!
