Book Haul: Stacking the Shelves #16

stacking the shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! Join the meme at Tynga’s Reviews!

For the week of August 12–18, 2012

I thought this week would be slow once again, but I was wrong! So many books, such little time to read! Superrr excited for Stormdancer. Seriously, I danced around when I got it! Also my sneaky boyfriend mailed me a book! He knows I like mermaid books 🙂 Also, those eBooks piled up since I always forget about adding them into my hauls! Oopps.

    I love the bargain section of Chapters!! I also got Tempted last week for $2, I mean, how can you beat that?! My husband made a deal with me yesterday that if I can find two children to look after in my day home, I can spend $30 at chapters a week. He has himself a deal 😉

    Girl of Nightmares was great!! I hope you enjoy it!

    I’ve been earing pretty good things about Where’d You Go, Bernadette, so I think I might check that one out!

    AWESOME new books! You will love Stormdancer! Honestly the first 70 pages or so are kind of.. brutal. Super long descriptions, and a little intimidating. But when the action starts it’s like HELLO AMAZING!!!
