STACKING THE SHELVES (10): THE ITJUSTHAPPENED 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.
*04/2016 EDIT: Tweaking the format to match the new blog theme.*

This might be the last time I would hoard this MUCH because whether I like it or not, book buying ban is currently on going. It would end March of next year. The reason is because I've so many titles on my TBR and I've been spending way too much that I don't want to empty my bank account ever again. I bought these two weeks ago hoping that I would be able to read The Hobbit before watching the movie. I haven't done neither of the two just yet. I bought Evernight and The Luxe to complete the series (I bought from the book sale last month). I also bought Shatter Me with the new cover because it was so cheap. I was also able to score Pendragon Book 2 because its a long series and I would like to complete it first before starting.


BOUGHT: (National Bookstore Greenbelt 1)
- The Hobbit (Middle-earth Universe) by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Lost City of Faar (Pendragon, #2) by D.J. MacHale
- Evernight (Evernight #1) by Claudia Gray
- Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi
- The Luxe (Luxe #1) by Anna Godbersen
- Beautiful Chaos (Caster Chronicles #3) by Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl
- Fathomless (Fairytale Retellings #3) by Jackson Pearce
- Breathe (Breathe #1) by Sarah Crossan
- The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry

So what did you get this week? Lemme see!

  10. :) Lovely haul! I've been curious about the Pendragon series and, while I'm a bit ashamed to admit it, I still haven't read any of the Caster Chronicles books! I know, I know. I definitely want to, I just need to find some time!

    I hope you enjoy your books!

  11. I recently read Fathomless and it was really good. I hope you enjoy it. :) I can't wait to finally read Breathe. It sounds really good, plus it's a dystopian, so it can't go wrong! I hope you like all of your books this week!

  13. I really enjoyed Breathe! I hope you do too..AND Shatter Me!!!

    Okay I have a HUGE question..When I was in the Philippines, I noticed they poly bag the books so you can't read them at all..Why do they do that? I find that if it's open, it makes me want to buy it more because I get to read a couple of pages first lol

    I need to be on a book buying ban as well..ENJOY all your books!

  20. Woah, look at all those books you bought! I sure wish I could have those pretty things for my shelf, as well. Wouldn't it be the best if we never had to worry about going bankrupt from buying books? Good luck on your book buying ban! And thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment on my blog!
