Stacking the Shelves: April 2014

Stacking the Shelves is a book haul hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Good news, everyone! There isn't actually any news really, I just wanted to say that at least once. At the beginning of this month I was on holiday in Italy and I had a great time (plus, managed to get some reading done)! Although I did have a hard time sleeping on the boat on the way there so I was drifting in and out of sleep in the car while I was listening to Oceania by Smashing Pumpkins. It felt like some sort of religious experience. Anyways, LGBT is almost over but I'm in a little bit of a slump right now so normal reviews will continue on Thursday. On to the books!
Bought this month:

I didn't get as many books this month as I did last month what with me being on holiday where they don't print in English (plus, there wasn't a great selection of books to buy on the boat) and very slowly going broke. I picked up These Broken Stars (a beautiful hardback copy, btw) and Boneshaker before I went away, and I'm glad that I did because I've been meaning to get those for quite some time now. I also got a box set of the Uglies series (which I read a long time ago and loved), because I feel like I should really own it with it being one of my favourite series by my favourite author.

What did you get? Leave me a link and I'll pop by!


  1. It's always nice to finally own books that you've read and loved AND I love those covers of the Uglies series.

  6. Awesome lot of books! :D Anatomy of a Single Girl is a really great book! The Uglies series is also really fantastic, I'd recommend you read them asap! :) I've heard some awesome things about These Broken Stars, I really want to get my hands on a copy. You'll have to let us know what you think! Thanks for stopping by my book haul. :)
