Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews where we can showcase the books we bought, borrowed or received for review.

The past couple of weeks have been busy! Octavia’s birthday was on the 29th so she received a bunch of stuff. I have no excuse for all the books I bought but I REGRET NOTHING! My school had a used book sale as well so I ended up getting 3 books for under $5!

sts1Books Bought:

The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket 
Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas
Confessions of Georgia Nicholson by Louise Rennison 
The Theif Lord by Cornelia Funke
Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg
The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor (for an upcoming signing!)

Library Books:
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
The Runaways by Brian K. Vaughan (issues #1-18)

In addition to all these books, I got a Batman Mighty Wallet. Mighty Wallets are these really slim but very convenient wallets that can actually fit in my pocket. They’re not the cheapeast ($15) but they are also water-proof and made out of 100% post-consumer recycled material. Needless to say, I am in love with mine.

I also dropped by the library on my birthday since I was already by it and snagged these lovelies that I truly don’t have time to read but am going to find a way!

  1. Happy belated birthday, Octavia! I really like Fire! And Cold Fury was pretty good, but I don’t think I’ll be reading the rest of the trilogy. I look forward to seeing what you think of it! Enjoy!

    What an awesome Batman wallet, Shelly! My sister would love that! My boys too, but my sister is obsessed with Batman stuff, lol!
    I need to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone too – sounds amazing! Enjoy!
