Stacking the Shelves (84)

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

A quiet week this one, thank goodness, as I have way too much catching up to do! We'll see if that stops me in upcoming weeks though. I'm terrible at not buying books.

Bought:

Cute & Cuddly Colouring Book


The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (eBook)

Review:

Firstlife by Gena Showalter - with many, many thanks to Harlequin Teen Australia!

I borrowed The Graveyard Book from a library many years ago and enjoyed it immensely. It's a book club pick this month, so time for a reread! I'm looking forward to it. And I can't wait to read Firstlife, of course.

What have you added to your shelves?

  2. OOoh nice! Those first two are new to me! Sadly I didn't enjoy Firstlife like I had expected. I adored Gena's first two YA series, but this one was just very meh for me. I hope you enjoy it though! Along with your other new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I've not read Showalter's other books, so this is a first for me! I'm currently half way through and I'm a bit torn. I like some elements but others really annoy me.

      Thanks, Jessica!

    1. Thanks, Grace! I think maybe this one is Australian, so not sure if its got a wider release. It's really cute and I can't wait to colour it. I've been enjoying colouring here and there, helps my mind to settle. :-)

  7. I so adore that adult coloring books are becoming a trend. What is better than these? Hope your books treat you well and, of course, you get time enough to unwind and color. :)
