Stacking The Shelves (33)
Stacking The Shelves is a book blogging meme where I show you what books, e-books, and other bookish things I recently acquired.
This is that part of the post where I apologise to no one for buying books while on a sort-of book buying ban. So, sorry, no one. (I’m sure you’re all delighted that I bought new books and took pretty pictures of it.)
- The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides
- Persuasion by Jane Austen
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
- Animal Farm by George Orwell
- 1984 by George Orwell
- Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
- City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6) by Cassandra Clare
- Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix (for review)
I finally got Isla! I pre-ordered it ages ago, but for some reason, Book Depository has more issues with pre-orders than actual orders so I don’t think I’ll be doing that again… Anyway, I’m really excited to finally read this! Still sad about the cover change, though.
I requested Horrorstör from Quirk Books! It’s a horror novel set in a Scandanavian furniture store. (It’s an IKEA. Sort of.) How cool is that?!
A review for this will be up soon! Maybe already add it to your Halloween list for this year?
I got City of Heavenly Fire as a late birthday present from my friend Linde. (Thank you so much!) I can’t wait to finally marathon the rest of the series. I haven’t read CoFA yet… Shame on me!
Also, can we just talk about how you could probably kill someone by throwing this book at their head? It’s MASSIVE. To be fair, the text is pretty big.
I’ve wanted to read George Orwell for a long time, specifically 1984, but never found an edition that I liked. You can never go wrong with Penguin’s Modern Classics editions and I found two of his books on sale at the New English Bookstore in Amsterdam. I also bought the two Penguin English Library classics and The Marriage Plot there. I only regret that a little bit, but I figured, these are the classics I’d read once I’m finally comfortable reading classics, so why not already buy them? God, I have problems.
