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)
Volume one of Chew; Issue one of Bodies and Terminal Hero; Issues one and two of Thomas Alsop (Yay for starting a few comics near the beginning!)
CHAPTER SAMPLER OF AFTERWORLDS!!
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. 🙂

The Night Circus is fantastic, a really cool and original idea. Hope you enjoy it!
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.
She wrote The Night Circus for NaNoWriMo? Woah. I had no idea. That’s crazy! I can’t wait to start this one!
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. 🙂
I do like B&N, but I wish we had a Waterstones because they have all those great deals.
I hope you like your comic! Can’t wait to discuss it with you. 🙂
Awesome haul! I absolutely adore The Night Circus! And I’m heading to B&N today hoping to get some of those posters and goodies! I just can’t resist! 😉
I hope there are some left. When I left my B&N, there were only a few left.
Oh no! The free stuff for all the pop cultured events have been in piles just sitting there at my store so I hope that’s the case for this event as well. It’s probably more popular than the others, but hopefully I’ll be able to get some!
Yeah, it was sitting in piles at mine too but a bunch of people took all the posters and such. I’ve got my fingers crossed there’s still some left for you. 🙂
Sounds like a good way to celebrate National Book Lovers Day. Enjoy your books. X
It definitely was. Thank you!
I’m in love with The Night Circus. I hope you enjoy it!
I don’t think I’ve come across anyone who didn’t enjoy it. I’m definitely looking forward to reading it!
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!
Awesome! I convinced my friend to buy The Radleys today too. Was it on sale at your B&N too?
Sounds like you guys had fun!
Yep – it was on the bargain shelf for $3.99. 🙂
We did have fun.
So jealous you got the Night Circus! I’m intrigued by the novel for sure, but I also can’t help but covet its gorgeous cover!
Right? I love the cover. It’s definitely one of the first things that attracted me. I’m looking forward to reading it.
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.
I’ve heard some mixed things about The Girl in the Well, but I HAD to buy it. It looks right up my alley.
Same for me with The Night Circus. It’s been on my list for a while, and I recently had a friend whose opinion I highly trust recommend it to me. She was super excited about it, so I had to check it out.
Ooooo. What’d you get on Netgalley?
A dystopian called Perfection, which I’ve already read. Between a YA fantasy, and an Accidental Alchemist.
What’d you think of it?
Overall I liked it, but it had slow spots. Meyer wrote the first three Cinder books for a nanowrimo too!
