The Holiday Collection

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s a chance to show what books you’ve added to your library in the past 7 days. These can be bought books, borrowed, review copies, any which way they come to you.


It’s not that bad is it?

So last week I listed all the review books I’d received in April. This week collection is bought, traded or gifted from last month onwards.

I’m off this coming week so I plan to make a decent effort. Which book would you start with?

Bought, Traded or Gifted (Part 1)

  1. Oh my goodness. Completely in love with your haul. I’ve no idea where I’d start. You’re gonna have some fun reading those 😀

  2. OH MY!! THAT’S A LOT OF BOOKS!! ❤ I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them, especially Eleanor and Park, and Invisiblity, they are some of my most anticipated reads of 2013 🙂 I'm keeping a lookout for The Bone Dragon, enjoy reading!

  3. Wow, that is a ridiculously great amount of awesome books. I hope you enjoy all of them.

  4. Oh, Meant to Be and Invisibility!!! I want to read Slated soon. I’m glad you liked it enough to get the sequel 😉 I heard Nobody But Us isn’t that good, but I hope it works out for you 🙂 Happy reading and have a great weekend!

  5. Wow, so many good books! I wouldn’t know what to start with, I’d probably start reading several! Looking forward to hearing what you thinkof Eleanor & Park, Midwinterblood and Acid.

    Happy reading!

  6. Wow. That’s a lotta books. First of all, The Dark Unwinding was one of my favorite books last year. But I also loved Past Perfect for its cuteness. And I am drooling over Acid because that one doesn’t come out until 2014 here. Enjoy, Luna!

  7. I’ve heard great things about Going Vintage. I’m supposed to have already finished it, but it keeps getting pushed back. Meant to Be, The Summer I Became a Nerd, Invisibility, and The Hallowed Ones are some of the ones I recognize and that I’m hoping to read. You’ve got a ton of books to get through. Good luck! 😉

    Thanks for stopping by my STS/IMM!

  8. So many great books! I have the most difficult time picking what book to read next. Eleanor & Park is on the top of my TBR pile. I have heard nothing but great things about it. I would start there.

    Lots of great choices though, so I do not envy you having to narrow it down.

  9. Lots and lots of great books you have there! I can’t find Acid by Emma Pass anywhere, though; it’s not an e-book on my Nook and the library doesn’t have it. I guess I’ll have to order from Amazon or The Book Depository. I loved Eleanor and Park! Thanks for stopping by my StS.

  10. Wow!! That is a LOT of books – I’m so jealous. I’m sure you’ve have loads of fun reading them 🙂 Thanks for dropping by my StS 🙂

  11. I don’t know what to comment on first, you got some amazing books! I like the orig. cover of Going Vintage but I really like the cover you posted, too! And I got Midwinter Blood this week, too! 🙂

  12. Whoa Luna, you got so many good books this week!
    I’ve heard tons of good things about Acid. Too bad it doesn’t come out until a year later for the US. ):
    I can’t wait to see what you think of The Summer I Became A Nerd too!
    Enjoy all your books & thanks for stopping by my STS! (:

  13. Wow, so many amazing books!!! LOVED Eleanor and Park! I mean, it is so freaking amazing. I bought The Hallowed Ones last year around Halloween but never got around to reading it. I also liked OCD, the Dude and Me.

    Enjoy all your goodies and happy reading 🙂

  14. That’s a great haul you got! I really like the sound of Meant to Be, I have to get it too. The other books look interesting too.
    Happy reading and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  15. Woah, so many great books! I don’t know where to start ^^’ I’ve had to walk past Acid at the store more often than I liked – I can’t buy books at the moment because I’m moving and have to pack.
    School of Good & Evil has me intrigued too! The trailer is phenomenal. The Dark Unwinding and Meant to Be are also on my TBR 🙂
    Enjoy all your goodies, and thanks for stopping by!

  16. Lots of books! Going Vintage, Mean To Be and The Summer I Became A Nerd all look like cute reads! I’ve heard great things about The Hallowed Ones and still really want to read that one. Curious about Acid too. That should be exciting. Thanks for stopping by!
