Stacking the Shelves – Sunday 21st July 2013

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme created and hosted by Tynga @ Tynga’s Reviews. It gives bloggers the chance to show their readers books they’ve bought, borrowed or received during the week.

I’ve had a great week book wise. Have a look at my acquisitions for this week:

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson – I got this book to review from The Reading Room and I’ve only just started it but I’m surprised by just how funny it is. It’s beautiful and fantastically eccentric. I’m really enjoying it.

The Inevitability of Stars by Kathryn R Lyster

The Inevitability of Stars by Kathryn R Lyster

The Inevitability of Stars by Kathryn R. Lyster (Harlequin) – This book is a new adult novel set in Byron Bay and Sydney. The cover is absolutely gorgeous and the blurb is so enticing… “A modern-day Romeo and Juliet set amongst the beauty of Byron Bay and the grind of Sydney.”

Siege by Sarah Mussi and the film Upside Down

I was lucky enough to win this dystopian pack from Date A Book. Siege by Sarah Mussi (great photo skillz there. I managed to cover up the authors name. It’s SARAH MUSSI!) and the Kirsten Dunst movie, Upside Down.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

And finally, If I Stay by Gayle Forman. This is one that I borrowed from my local library this week. They have a fantastic selection of books. I also picked up a couple of cookbooks! I’ve heard amazing things about If I Stay and am very eager to experience Gayle Forman’s writing for myself.

 

That’s the additions to my personal library for this week. 🙂 Feel free to leave me a comment telling me which books you got this week. Thanks 🙂

Stacking the Shelves!

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme created and hosted by Tynga @ Tynga’s Reviews. It gives bloggers the chance to show their readers books they’ve bought, borrowed or received during the week.

This is a meme that I love to read but rarely participate in because I don’t often get or buy many books in a week. But this week I went to the Gold Coast Lifeline Bookfest. The Lifeline bookfest is a giant second-hand book sale with the proceeds going to the Lifeline charity.

This is a look at my haul of ten books that I got for under $15 (I also bought a novel in Italian for my dad!)

All links lead to goodreads 😀

Bookfest Haul!

Bookfest Haul!

Finding Cassie Crazy by Jaclyn Morriaty (which I was absolutely delighted to read after loving Feeling Sorry For Celia a few weeks ago)

Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta (a book I adore but didn’t have a copy of in my personal library)

A Million Little Pieces by James Frey (I watched Oprah religiously during that little scandal and can’t wait to read it)

Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot (I love this book. The next two books in the trilogy not so much but this first one – one of my favourite Meg Cabot novels)

Faking It by Jennifer Cruise

Mister Monday by Garth Nix (I’ve never read a Garth Nix book but aim to change that very soon!)

Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger

Evernight, Stargazer and Hourglass by Claudia Gray (and Hourglass is signed by the author!)

 

So that’s my haul. Now I need to find some space on my shelves to stack them!
