Stacking the Shelves (81)

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Share all of the bookish goodies you got during the week!

I think I've filled a couple of shelves this week! Phew! Lifeline Bookfest was on, where loads and loads of second hand books are for sale and the money goes to a good cause. I found quite a few after spending 6 hours browsing!! I also visited the library for the first time in a long while, which did not help my TBR pile, at all. I'll never learn!

Review:

In Place of Never by Jennifer Anne Lindsey

That is a lot of books, yes? What's the bookish equivalent of my eyes are too big for my belly?!?! A lot of the second hand books are going to be rereads of classics I enjoyed as a kid, so there's no rush to get to them. I have to make sure I read the library books asap though so I don't incur late fees! As for the Shannara Chronicles, I borrowed them from my cousin and I doubt he'll be timing me...though you never know! I just started watching the new television show based on The Elfstones of Shannara and so far I'm enjoying it, so I figured it's only right I read the books. I have big reading plans for the next week, though not many from these new additions. I'll see how I go. Cross your fingers for me!

What new books have you made space for on your shelves?

  3. Blood and Salt is pretty good. Can't wait to see what you think if the Shannara books. I haven't heard many good things about them. What a wonderful haul!

    1. I'm really looking forward to Blood and Salt. Yeah, I've heard different things about the Shannara chronicles. I'll see. At the moment I have to put them off for even longer as my Dad has borrowed them, haha! Thanks for stopping by, Barb.
