Getting Shelf/Mailbox/Basket/etc posts up by Saturday is nearly impossible for me right now, so I've decided to link up to multiple haul memes since the goal of these posts is to connect with other bloggers and see what everyone else will be reading, and these seem to spread throughout the weekend. Hope that's ok!
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews, The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren!
So, it's been slow around here because work got a bit complicated, and after a very abrupt department switch and work hour adjustment (I now work from 6:30a-3p...have I ever mentioned I'm a night owl? Because I am.), it's been a lot more of a lifestyle change than I was prepared for. HOWEVER, I've finally carved a bit of time, and I have been reading some pretty awesome books lately and gone to some pretty sweet events...I'm excited to share and chat about them.
Coming up this week will be my October Reads post (check out my September one!), a review of Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry, and my brand new brilliant contributor Shanon will have her first review! Speaking of, did you see her intro post and read how fabulous she is? There's an International giveaway to celebrate her!
Onto the Book Haul!
I haven't done one of these in awhile - and I was hoping not to for awhile because that meant I'd finally curbed my book intake. And I was doing really well!...until. Oh, until. You need to see what AWESOME I got...
False Memory by Dan Krokos
The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse
The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I read this when I was a young teenager, and while I know I loved it then, I simply don't remember it. Hope to re-read soon, since I'm seeing the movie next week!
Safekeeping by Karen Hesse (ARC)
Ksenia from MacMillan was cleaning out her Fall galleys on Twitter, and I snapped this one up when offered.
52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody (ARC)
donated to ARCycling from For What It's Worth - thank you so much Karen and Jen!
Tokyo Heist by Diana Renn
Won from the amazing Tara at Hobbitsies! This girl jumped through crazy hoops to get me a signed copy when the prize got delayed, and I am so grateful. Thanks Tara!
Across the Universe swag from Jen at I Read Banned Books
LOVE this swag! Books are mine, I just had to unite the pretty together for the pic :)
And now what completely blew me out of the water...Katelyn from Kate's Tales of Books and Bands has been one of my favourite book blogs since I ever discovered them, and she is so sweet and awesome. Her blog turned 2 a few weeks ago, and she celebrated with a HUGE giveaway. And by HUGE, I mean...
|This greeted me one afternoon. That's a magazine there to the left, for size comparison.|
|SO. MANY. BOOKS!|
|SO. MUCH. SWAG! (and the loveliest card :))|
I KNOW. I seriously need a whole new bookshelf, and now I have so many I want to read!! Thank you Katelyn for all the books and amazing swag, your kindness and generosity knows no bounds!
So, that's the haul...and now I need to find a new house to have room for a new bookcase. Yep.
What's on your shelves?
