I haven’t done “Stacking The Shelves” in a while (mainly because I didn’t have hauls this past months. lol). Last time I did this was in February… Yeah, March and April were quite sad and empty. lol

Anyway, I’m back! And I’m featuring my May and June hauls. I missed STS last May, sooo combining it with this month end. How fast time can fly, imagine it? It’s already July folks!!!

* MAY BOOK HAUL *

dsc_6135

I decided to go on a book ban from May (or at least limit myself to maximum of 2 books per month) because I’d like to treat myself on my birthday which is in August. It’s surprisingly not that hard compared to when I was still in college. Maybe because I’m broke af right now. lol

Anyway, from this pile, I only bought two (2) books, and the rest are gifts. I have an amazing friend who always take pity on me, so he gives me books when I’m too hopeless. Lol. But seriously, I’m grateful to him. Thank you!

– Bought –

  • Starflight by Melissa Landers – I bought this one because it was a late reservation. It was supposed to have arrive in March, but I was only informed that there’s finally an available copy in May. So I was quite ready for this. I was quite excited for this one, but I got it late. Bummer!
  • The Crown by Kiera Cass – bought this because, well, I want to read the ending of Selection and also, I eventually put it for giveaway. 🙂

– Received –

  • The Selection, Elite, One, Heir by Kiera Cass
  • Air Awakens, Fire Falling, Earth’s End by Elise Kova

I got all these from the friend I mentioned above. I, myself, is still quite stupefied by the fact that he gave me 7 hardcovers. I mean, I have never received something this big from one person before… so, what have I ever done to deserve these? lol. Quite serious though, I’m just thankful. Really. Thanks, Raf! I’ll be a really good buddy, I promise. lol 

  • What I Couldn’t Tell You by Faye Bird – Thanks Usborne UK for sending me this review copy!

** I wasn’t able to list down my May eBooks… so I’ll pass on that. Can’t remember anymore.

  1. Thank you! I also can't wait to read Starflight. I love Melissa Landers' Alienated series so much, so I really had to get Starflight too. 😀

    Thanks for dropping by~ 🙂
