Stacking the Shelves: the Epic Haul edition
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme created by Tynga's Reviews to showcase books that we got - be it for review, by trade, because we bought them, whatever. Those can be printed or ebooks.
As announced in the title, my haul since Sunday has been huge! Part of that is because I had ordered and preordered quite a bunch of books (I was lured in by bargains and vouchers and the like) and part is because I have an amazing friend who gave me a ton of books she had gotten from a relative who moved, but that she didn't want for herself (it was like 3 huge boxes, she kept some, but were also a load that will be given away to a used book shop).
First off, the bought ones:
Masque of the Red Death, by Bethany Griffin
Carnival of Souls, by Melissa Marr
Unspoken, by Sarah Rees Brennan
I've wanted all of those for forever! Unspoken finally arrived today (I had hoped I'd get it be Tuesday). I can't read either of them now because of the sequels challenge, but I finished Masque on Thursday night and the review will probably go up on Sunday.
And now... *drumroll* the very pretty signed Foretold anthology I won in a giveaway from Malinda Lo!
And the gifted ones:
Darkly Dreaming Dexter, Dearly Devoted Dexter, Dexter in the Dark, Dexter by Design
Carrie Ryan: The Forest of Hands & Teeth
Neil Gaiman: Smoke and Mirrors
I've only seen the first two seasons of the Dexter TV show bu I loved them! So I'm curious about those first four books. I've read a short story of Carrie Ryan's that is connected to the novel but not the novel itself, so yay! And Neil Gaiman is one of my big loves when it comes to books. So yay again!
The Last Temptation
The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch
The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish
I'm curious about all of them but slightly (*cough*) despairing about when I'll get to read them all! o.O
Anyhow, that's my pile. And I'm offically on a Book Buying Ban now. Apart from that copy of Obsidian that still hasn't arrived yet *grumble*. So... what's on your pile? Leave me a link in the comments so I can check it out :)
