Stacking the Shelves {23}

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews, where bloggers share recently bought, borrowed, won, and gifted books (print or ebooks)!
 
Last month, my sister's package finally arrived from London; I think I got that box open in under ten minutes because I was scrambling to hold these babies. I won Daughter of Smoke and Bone from the UK pub and I asked my sister to buy the sequel, Days of Blood and Starlight, and Let It Snow. The UK covers of these books are just so much more gorgeous than the US covers! Anyway, my sister also got The Fault in Our Stars because the bookstore had a buy-two-get-one deal. Good job, I told her on the phone :))

I clearly remember the day I bought Emma. I'd grumbled to my dad about how I was bankrupt and then I drove off to the mall with my sisters. When I came home, I had a new book lol. To my defense, it cost, like, $1 - I couldn't resist such a steal. Last March, Becca Fitzpatrick visited the Philippines for book signings and she brought ARCs of Black Ice for us bloggers, so that's signed. Acid I won from a giveaway, and it's signed, too.

I got an ARC of Into the Still Blue last year but when Veronica Rossi came with Ransom Riggs and Tahereh Mafi for book signings, I just had to get a finished copy because I love her books so much. Miss Peregrine's Graphic Novel and Hush, Hush are books I also got for the signings I mentioned.

Lastly, my sister also got me this electronic dictionary bookmark. I'm not fond of looking up words while I'm reading but I still use it because it's pink! <3

That's it! I have lots of reading to do - if only I weren't always so sleepy :((
