Stacking The Shelves #12 + January 2015 Recap


Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews which features our newest additions to our shelves.

I got few books to share this time because I’m trying not to buy lots and lots of books. I’m definitely punishing my self, am I not? Anyways, these titles I bought for a cheaper price since they’re pre-loved/on sale. Except of course for the Mara Dyer Trilogy, which I got signed earlier this year!!

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
The Story of Us by Deb Caletti
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

ARCs Received:

January 2015 Recap

Okay, January has been really eventful for me. Most of the things that happened aren’t book-related but the bottomline is I saw my favorite band, Bastille, perform live. On stage. In the flesh. They even tweeted about the magazine we made for them and the gifts we gave them. It was such a surreal experience! I also got to meet friends during the event!

Let’s go to the bookish side now. :) I got to meet Michelle Hodkin earlier this month! Don’t worry, in case you missed that, I’ll leave a link at the bottom.
