Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book enthusiasts can show off their newest additions to their collection!
My massive Christmas order started coming through so I received A LOT of books this week – most of them are incredibly exciting ones!!! Make sure you check out Booktopia if you want to own any of these yourself!
- His Dark Materials – Philip Pullman
- The Malory Towers Collection – Enid Blyton
I love box sets! These were some of my favourite stories from my childhood, and I know I will want to reread them someday – therefore, it is very important I add them to my collection. (Can you see an attempt at justification here???)
- Stardust – Neil Gaiman
- The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman
- Neverwhere – Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell (illustrator)
I have become a little bit obsessed with Neil Gaiman – just in case you couldn’t tell. These will be my next adventures into his world. I absolutely had to get the illustrated edition of Neverwhere – it is just glorious!
The Villains Trilogy:
- Fairest of All – Serena Valentino
- The Beast Within – Serena Valentino
- Poor Unfortunate Soul – Serena Valentino
This series is just visually stunning – I will be reviewing them all together when I finish! The hardcovers are so cool – underneath the dust jacket are the villains’ alternative selves. Also, I just really love a good villain origin tale!
- Grave Mercy – Robin LaFevers
My colleague has been recommending this to me for AGES. All she had to say was ‘assassin nuns’ and I was intrigued and needed to get my hands on a copy.
- The Archived – Victoria Schwab
I love her other work, especially Vicious, and this sounds even more intriguing. The dead are kept in a place called the Archive, and the book’s tagline is ‘Every body has a story’. Mysterious, cool, and a bit creepy.
- Geektastic – edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci
A friend recommended this to me twice and the selection of contributing authors is just incredible. I cannot wait to get stuck into it very soon!
- Vargic’s Miscellany of Curious Maps – Martin Vargic
I have wanted this book since forever – it is so pretty, and just amazing to flick through. It makes me so happy to have my own copy!
- A Thousand Nights – E. K. Johnston
I got this from the wonderful Genie in a Book as a trade. It came beautifully wrapped with a very sweet note!
- No Virgin – Anne Cassidy
A January release – received it from work. Looks like a heavy read despite its small size.
- Heartless – Marissa Meyer
- Holding Up the Universe – Jennifer Niven
I got two YA Chronicles boxes this week! It was very exciting – they are both so pretty!!!
