This is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

The shortlist for the Giller prize was announced this week, so I bought two of the five books on the list.  I want to read at least these two before the winner is announced in November. 


I also bought a Wonder Woman graphic novel. And when I was paying for it, the sales girl asked me if I liked Harley Quinn (it’s like she could read my mind!). So she gave me some free comics! That was pretty awesome!


Finally, I was so excited when I saw The Big Lie available on NetGalley! I have been looking forward to this graphic novel since the spring. Now I’ll be able to review it before it comes out!


What books did you buy this week? Have you read any of these ones?

On Sunday I went to Word On The Street, a book festival in Toronto.

It was blazing hot! And it’s all outdoors. Even though it was on the lake, there wasn’t any relief.

So of course, I splurged a little on books… okay I splurged a lot. Here’s what I bought:

From HarperCollins I bought:

  • This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
  • Our Dark Night by Victoria Schwab
  • They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
  • King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard
  • One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake
  • Bad Feminist by Roxanne Gay
  • Hunger by Roxanne Gay

From Simon and Schuster I bought:

  • Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick
  • The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schemer

So after that I had to stop. Those books were heavy enough to carry back to the car.

I had a pretty good book week. Now I really have to take a break from buying books (but we’ll see if that happens!)

What books did you buy this week? Have you read any of these ones?

This week I went to Lake Placid. I can turn any vacation into a bookish vacay! First we went to Barnes and Noble in Syracuse. I bought Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater and How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather. 

 

The DC comics were on sale, buy two get one free, so I had to stock up…


And these are some adorable Harry Potter bookmarks!

Then, I went to the bookstore in Lake Placid, called The Bookstore Plus.

 

I found a signed copy of Warcross so I had to get it! They also had some Pride and Prejudice stickie notes. So cute!


Finally we went to Watertown. I went to Hot Topic and bought a Hermione doll and a Hermione Pop! And at a game and comic store I found a Harley Quinn piggy bank!

So my shelves have been fully stacked this week! Did you get any fun books this week?

I was approved for one ARC on NetGalley:


The Shoe on the Roof by Will Ferguson.
Ferguson is a Giller Prize winner, so I hope this book is good!

I received one piece of book mail, a Goodreads Giveaway: Unqualified by Anna Faris.


This book sounds so good! I’ll be reviewing it in October.
