Stacking the Shelves – January 2014 Edition!

Stacking the shelves

Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews

 All I have to say is thank goodness for friends and family who heard my birthday pleas for Barnes and Noble gift cards. Without them, I certainly wouldn’t have read enough books this month to bring home this many amazing titles (per my Read 4, Buy 1 challenge). As I have been trying to streamline my collection to only the most special of titles, I am focused on bringing home only books I have already read (and loved) and/or want to collect. It’s really difficult to keep myself from buying things I won’t read for a long while, but so far I’m doing pretty well. Anyway, here’s a look at my new acquisitions:

Hardcopies (Adult):

 I am thrilled at all the additions to my collection this month! Having the Briggs and Harrison books in hardcover makes me incredibly happy, but I am most excited about the Brandon Sanderson book – it is gorgeous!

Not too many in this category… To be honest I kind of violated my Read 4, Buy 1 for the bottom three titles because I found them on such killer deals. I think I paid less than ten dollars for the bunch. The problem is, I like having all formats match in the collections and now I have to go buy the other Rachel Caines in hardcover…

Thank you Harperteen for sending Panic!

ARCs:

 I probably shouldn’t have included the Lauren Oliver ARC in the Young Adult category as well as this one… ah, well – too late. Anyway I did get a few other awesome titles from Netgalley and Edelweiss (Thank you!!). I am actually tickled to only featuring two digital ARC titles this month because it’s proof that I’m sticking to my resolution to stop requesting so many of them.
