Stacking the Shelves – April 2014 Edition!

Stacking the shelves

Hosted by Tinga’s Reviews

Considering how many books I bought last month (as seen in March’s STS) I think a serious cutback in book buying was definitely called for. I’m pleased to say that the only books I acquired this month were either purchased last month during my spend-a-thon or bought under my personal read 4, buy 1 challenge. Here’s a look at what I got: 

Hardcopies:

1

Most of these I’ve already read. I’m at the point where I’m only adding the best of the best to my collection. I think all of these qualify. :)

Ebooks:

All of these I snagged for under $3.00 – killer! I’ve been hearing awesome things about both Red Rising and Archived, and who doesn’t love Robin Hobb?

Library:

Turtlebomb!!! I’ve read about half of the books I’ve borrowed (thank goodness for online renewals), and have, for the most part, enjoyed them all. My favorite read in this category was the Girl of Fire and Thorns – which you may have noticed is also in the “purchased” category… it was AWESOME!

ARCs:

Thank you Penguin Random House! Having the chance to review an early copy of The Immortal Crown is like a blogging dream come true for me. Be on the lookout for the review of it near the end of the month!

 Also, you may have noticed I’m doing a great job sticking to my new resolution to stop requesting so many titles from Netgalley and Edelweiss. I’m reserving that for the best ones – like a new Robin Hobb and a new Trudi Canavan!

So that’s it for my haul! How did YOU do this month? :)

  1. I got thief’s magic from netgalley too! Hoping it’s good! The archive date is 14th may and the publication date is 15th may so I have like…what, a week, to read it? oh lawrd that is gonna be stressful haha Hopefully I love it so much I’ll just read it in like two sittings! (I’ve not read her work before but i’ve heard great things)

    • Oh, yay! I’m really excited for it. I think I have about a week longer because I got mine on Edelweiss, but it’s approaching too soon! I read and loved her Black magician trilogy, and I can only imagine this one’s just as good. Hope you like it! :-)

    • Book binges are the absolute best! I just about fell off my seat when I found out I was being offered a copy of the new Richelle Mead. Seriously, best blogging day ever!
