Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, both physical and virtual. This means you can include books you buy in-store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
So, I’ve been trying to be a responsible adult with money. Then I had 2 things that made walking into Chapters/Indigo a necessity. That’s where it all went out the window and I sacrificed my pay cheque to the book gods. Between Friday (the 4th) and Thursday (the 10th), I spent well over $100 on books (what budget?). Here’s what I got.
Bought (in no particular order):
Nicholas Nickleby – Charles Dickens
Omens – Kelly Armstrong
The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini
A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hosseini
And the Mountains Echoed – Khaled Hosseini
Like Water for Chocolate – Laura Esquivel
(I have this one in Spanish from my undergrad as well)
The Orenda – Joseph Boyden
(I read The Three Day Road by Boyden in my Canadian Literature course during my undergrad…great novel as well!)
Briarpatch – Tim Pratt
(I got this book for about $2.99…I couldn’t pass it up, even if it ends up being a bust)
Listen to the Squawking Chicken – Elaine Lui
(It was really cool that Chapters had signed copies in store!!)
The Great Darkening – R.G. Triplett
(I won this from a Goodread First Reads giveaway – Autographed copy!)
