Stacking the Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality

what’s the buzz: weekly round-up

It was actually a fairly busy week, truth be told. I finally got my hair done which I’ve been meaning to do for ages (I actually think the last time I was at the hairdressers was a year ago – yikes!) It’s now very blonde and much shorter (went with ye-old faithful bob).

I also went to see Overlord this week – now that was an action-packed punch of a film. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was gripped the whole way through. We also went out for dinner right after (a pre-Christmas meal out) which was also very nice.

Okay, I’ll be the first to admit I went a bit crazy with the book-buying this week! Seriously though, there were so many great deals I just couldn’t help myself! 😉

books bought:

Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness | The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness | The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness | Alanna: The Song of the Lioness by Tamora Pierce | The Tulip Touch by Anne Fine | No Turning Back by Beverley Naidoo | The Pearl by John Steinbeck | The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier | The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton | The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge | Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge | Fly By Night by Frances Hardinge

I might have just given into temptation and bought a bundle of books from The Book People when they were having their Black Friday sale. Oops – so much for cutting back on my book-buying! Ah well…

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan | The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan | The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan | The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan | The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan | Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce | Empress of all Seasons by Emiko Jean

I have been meaning to read the Percy Jackson series so when I saw the box-set of the first series of books going for £6.00 I knew I had to make it mine!

Final Friends Book 1: The Party by Christopher Pike | The Tachyon Web by Christopher Pike | Die Softly by Christopher Pike | The Immortal by Christopher Pike

I was addicted to Christopher Pike’s books back when I was a young teen. I always enjoy a trip down memory lane so I’m looking forward to reading these books again.

bookish haul

Down a Dark Hall by Lois Duncan | Summer of Fear by Lois Duncan | I Know What You Did Last Summer by Lois Duncan | Stranger With My Face by Lois Duncan

I’m on a mission to try and collect all the vintage editions of Lois Duncan’s books. I’m really pleased to add this edition of ‘Down a Dark Hall’ and ‘Stranger With My Face’ to my collection. I also love this cover for ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’. I already have this edition of ‘Summer of Fear’ but the copy I own has sprayed green edges and this one does not so it’s still different enough to justify getting it again! 😉

bookish haul

The Juniper Game by Sherryl Jordan | The Kidnapping of Christina Lattimore by Joan Lowery Nixon

I love, love, love the cover of this edition of ‘The Kidnapping of Christina Lattimore’ – I’m so happy to add it to my collection. I’m also loving the cover for ‘The Juniper Game’ been meaning to buy this book for ages!

bookish haul

The Curse by Cynthia Blair | The Principal by M.C. Sumner | Nightmare Inn by T.S. Rue | Deadly Stranger by M.C. Sumner | Summer’s End by Robert Hawks | The Teacher by Joseph Locke | K is for Killer by Sue Grafton | The Hunger by M.C. Sumner | The Secret Diaries: Temptation by Janice Harrell

I already have a few of these but the majority were in bind-up editions so I couldn’t pass this lot of Nightmares books up when I came across it on eBay (like, I was just innocently strolling by…) 😉

bookish haul

Witch by Christopher Pike | I.O.U. by Nicholas Adams | The Coach by M.C. Sumner | Home Before Dark by Beverly Hastings | The Beast by Cynthia Blair | Blood Reunion by Janice Harrell | Bloodchoice by Janice Harrell | Bloodlust by Janice Harrell | Bloodlines by Janice Harrell | Spring Break by Barbara Steiner

The second half of the lot, with a few bonus titles including ‘Witch’ by Christopher Pike and ‘Spring Break’ by Barbara Steiner. Not a bad haul, if I do say so myself. 🙂

bookish haul

Corktown by Ty Hutchinson | A Hymn in the Silence by Kelley York & Rowan Altwood | The Girl at the Border by Leslie Archer

I can’t believe I missed that ‘A Hymn in the Silence’ came out at the end of October! Have I been living under a rock??? I’ve been waiting for this book since I read (and loved!) the first one.

for review:

bookish haul

Descendant of the Crane by Joan He | Izzy + Tristan by Shannon Dunlap | Come and Get Me by August Norman

I have definitely got cover-lust for ‘The Descendant of the Crane’ – it is such a stunningly beautiful cover!

bookish haul

Exit Plans for Teenage Freaks by Nathan Burgoine | Keep This To Yourself by Tom Ryan | You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn

I’m pretty excited for all of these books. They all look so amazing I can’t wait to get stuck in asap!
