Stacking the Shelves – Comics from the Library, Giveaway Prizes, and my #OTSPSecretSister!

It’s been a while since I did a Stacking the Shelves post, but I got some really cool stuff this week I wanted to share!

On Monday, I got my first package from my wonderful On the Same Page Secret Sister and got a SIGNED copy of Eleanor & Park, which I’m definitely looking forward to reading. Then on Thursday, I got The Glass Arrow in the mail from Kristina aka Gone Pecan (Thanks again, Kristina!) through one of her giveaways. On Friday, the library system I work for had an all day training at a library that is at least three or four times the size of the one I work for, so, of course, I explored and found a few things to check out: Shutter Volume 1, Chew, The Omnivore Edition Volume 1, and Ms. Marvel Volume 1 (which I’d already been wanting to read but was described as “It’s a female, teenage, Muslim superhero. What more could you want?” My answer – nothing, which is why I checked it out!).

What did you add to your shelves this week?

Stacking the Shelves: New YA Library Books!

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

I only do this meme sporadically when I have something I’m really excited about, and this week I do. Pretty much all of the YA books I ordered for my library for the month of October came in this past week, and of course, I checked most of them out.

I already read Marie Lu’s The Young Elites (review soon), but these are three more I checked out. I also bought My True Love Gave to Me, which is a collection of holiday themed short stories by some awesome authors (Stephanie Perkins, Jenny Han, David Levithan, etc.). I was going to wait until closer to the holidays, but after seeing some glowing reviews of the stories, I decided that I couldn’t wait, so I headed to Target and bought it. I’m looking forward to starting it soon.

Stacking the Shelves: Decatur Book Festival and some new comics!

This past weekend I went to the Decatur Book Festival (check out my recap of the weekend here). I had the awesome opportunity to meet several of my favorite authors and get my books signed. I already owned most of the books I got signed, but I bought a few new ones. 🙂
Here are the ones I already owned that I got signed!
