Stacking the Shelves #11 & The Sunday Post #8

(Sorry about this crappy phone-taken photo, I didn't have time to take a proper one with my camera)

Stacking The Shelves by Tynga's Reviews 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 Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.


School was a lot less hectic this week so I was able to do up 6 posts this week on the blog! :D I am also glad to announce that I am out of my reading slump!!! Hurray! I am so glad that didn't last too long because I've only read 5 books this month so far and that is pathetic :( Hopefully I'll be able to get more done during the rest of the month.

My plan was to finish reading ALL of my 11 library books before I could borrow anymore (the due dates were so pressurising) but it failed miserably. I returned 2 books last week and proceeded to borrow 2 more. #booknerdproblems Now I am back to a square one, lol!


Rebel Spring & Gathering Darkness: These are the second and third books of the Falling Kingdoms series and I had to have these immediately after I finished Falling Kingdoms! It was so refreshing and amazing after the disaster that was Snow like Ashes. My review of it will be up next week, keep a look out! :)


The Well of Ascension & The Hero of Ages: I can't wait to continue on with the series and I am so in love with the covers!!! :) If you follow me on Twitter you'll know that these arrived in very poor packaging after waiting 3 weeks for it to arrive. The printing quality also seems very different from my copy of The Final Empire which I got in January. The pages of this book are of a different colour and there are random splashes off ink throughout the book. Some words are just blobs of black ink :/ Book Depository is sending replacement copies but I don't have high hopes about the print quality.

The Luminaries & The Secret Life of Bees: I am going to try and read as many award-winning novels as possible this year. I feel like I can't really call myself a book lover if I haven't read that many classics/highly-acclaimed books. I am afraid but I hope I survive.

Survivor: I've always wanted to check out a Chuck Palahniuk book and I know that he has more popular books out there compared to Survivor. But I quite like reading a lesser-known book of a popular author sometimes so that I can get a feel of his/her writing style before I read their more popular books. I think it helps me appreciate their writing more :)

  1. Nice haul! I really want to read The Fallen Kingdoms series. I have book one...somewhere. I think the only reason I haven't read it is because I can't find it! I'm glad you're out of your reading slump! Enjoy your books, happy reading!
