NEW ON THE SHELF (28): THE DARK EDITION.

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews that showcases newly acquired books or goodies we bought, received or borrowed during the week.
Yesterday was our much awaited pay day and since we've experienced floodings these past couple of weeks, my trip to National Bookstore Cut-off sale was cancelled. As soon as I came out of the office, I headed straight to NBS Glorietta 5 only to be a little disappointed. They have a lot of titles on 70% off but most of them were not YAs, the titles I really want were all unavailable, I also found some awesome YA ones but couldn't find the first part of the series and the ones I bagged were on 20% off:


BOUGHT: (National Bookstore)
🔼 Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1) by Laini Taylor
🔼 Bloodlines (Bloodlines #1) by Richelle Mead
🔼 Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles #1) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
🔼 Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare
🔼 Sapphique (Incarceron #2) by Catherine Fisher

After almost an hour of finding-grabbing-dropping-getting-deciding drama at NBS, I decided to check out Powerbooks (NBS and Powerbooks are sister companies) but nada. Then dropped by the nearest Bibliarch Branch in the area and as soon as I entered the door, these were the babies greeted me:


BOUGHT: (Bibliarch Glorietta 3)
🔼 Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna #1) by Kendare Blake
🔼 The Iron King (The Iron Fey #1) by Julie Kagawa *FINALLY!!!!! I GOT IT*
🔼 Carrier of the Mark (Carrier Trilogy #1) by Leigh Fallon
🔼 The Selection (The Selection #1) by Kiera Cass

I felt like the world stop for a second and I immediately grabbed them and went home!Then when I was taking pictures I realized that I overspent! Now I have to suffer for about a week or 2 at work because of what just transpired! I was even tempted to buy Something Strange and Deadly (but it was as pricey as the The Iron King so next time would do) and I don't have the Throne of Glass yet! That made me feel terrible! The only thing that makes me smile is I HAVE BOOKS.


Thank you so much National Bookstore and Bibliarch!

  1. It looks like you went on a book buying spree! With the exception of Sapphique, I have all of the other books and I enjoyed them all. My particular faves are Clockwork Angel and Bloodlines. Happy reading! :)
