Stacking the Shelves: National Book Lovers Day

So I keep saying I’m not going to do Stacking the Shelves that often, and then I go and buy a bunch of books/comic books/graphic novels. I have a problem. Anyway, today was National Book Lovers Day, so you know I had to celebrate…by buying some books. I went to Barnes and Noble, which was having a Page to Screen event (aka giving away a bunch of free posters and such) and Comic Commander, the comic book shop closest to me. Here’s what I got!

The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco (SO EXCITED about this one); The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (also excited about this one. It’s been recommended to me by at least five different people)

Look at these posters!! You know I’m super pumped about that The Maze Runner poster! And the Doctor Who one.

So what about you? Did you add anything to your shelves this week?

Happy National Book Lovers Day to all of you lovely bookish people. 🙂

  2. Not that you don’t have enough remarks about The Night Circus, but it is definitely one of those books that you keep thinking about long after you’ve finished the book to the point where you’re hesitant to start a new story because you don’t want to leave this one. I think you’d also be interested to hear how she went about writing the book – for NaNoWriMo.

  3. YES!! I’m so glad that you have The Night Circus! I can’t wait to find out what you think of it. Looks like you have a great haul there! I loved hanging out in Barnes & Noble when I was last in the US. I really wish we had them here, or that there was a Waterstones in the Borders! At least I have my comic book to be getting on with though. 🙂

  4. Yay! I’m glad you got to the event so you could get the posters. 😀 We went too and I picked up a hardback of Mansfield Park and The Radleys by Matt Haig. My son answered some Hobbit trivia (we read the book a few months ago) and got a cool journal!

  5. Nice haul! The first step is admitting you have a problem. The second step is buying more books. 😉 I’ve heard mixed reviews about the girl in the well so I’m interested in what you’ll think of it. The Night Circus has been on my to read list for a while, it looks strangely good. I didn’t buy any books this week, but I did get three Netgalley books, which is even better.
