Book Haul: Jan – Apr Haul

Hey guys! I haven’t done Stacking The Shelves since December of last year. And I know, I know! I’m so sorry for the lack of posts since the last quarter of 2016, and for being missing-in -action a lot. It’s been tough for me. I’ve been trying really hard, but it just won’t happen. But hey! Now, the blogging gods are finally blessing me with motivations, so yay! I really hope that I can stay active for long this time!

Today, I’m going to share my first quarter of 2017 book haul. And yes, I’m going to ditch the Stacking The Shelves weekly feature by Tynga’s Reviews from here on, and just stick with “Book Haul” feature, so that I can freely post in any day of the week.

Also, I don’t want this to look like, in any way, a form of bragging of what I’m getting. This is just a way of me sharing “new” titles that can be a way for readers to discover from my stack and add them on their own TBR pile. And also, as a form of thanking people, who are extremely generous to send me copies. I, myself, love seeing book hauls and unboxing photos, and see what other bloggers/bookstagrammers/readers get, so I hope that you discover new titles from my new stack as well!

  1. OMg I love this haul! Ate, have you read Lucky Boy, The Hate U Give and Wait For Me? I did! AND I LIKED THEM SO MUCH! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts. 💖

    1. I started Lucky Boy and Wait For Me. I was half way Lucky Boy (and totally loving it), but life happened. I got so busy with a project I’ve just recently finished so I had to abandon the book halfway 🙁 BUT I’m definitely going to continue (and probably will start over again) and share my thoughts here. 🙂 I’m so happy to hear you liked those books!

  2. DUDE YOUR PICTURES ARE AMAZING! I can’t even deal. I love them!

    Also you’ve gotten some fantastic books so far this year! A lot of them I want to buy eventually when I have money. I hope you’ve been enjoying them 😀
