Stacking the Shelves: February 2014

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

Hello, Krusty Krew! I'm finally back in business after such a long time! University work got in the way of me being able to read just for fun since I'm studying for a degree in English and obviously have a lot of reading to do, as my 'read for uni' shelf on Goodreads shows. All the work has calmed down a bit so I finally have time to read for myself and it feels just awesome. So I figured, why not get back into blogging, which I really really missed? And here I am!

I've been in the mood to read more contemporary books recently, and I feel like I don't read enough contemporary so I've been looking around for some good books of the genre every time that I go into a bookshop. Feel free to recommend some good contemporaries to me, I'm always open to suggestions!

I've been waiting for his latest album incredibly feverishly and it only came out on Monday, which was when I actually ran to HMV to buy it (it's a good thing that my uni is located in the city centre). I literally did this when I saw it:

I'm still doing it now because it's so good.
What did you get this week? Leave me a link and I'll pop by!
