Stacking the Shelves/Showcase Sunday (7)

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.
Showcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea.
These memes are a replacement of The Story Siren's In My Mailbox.

Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday make a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

 I received a copy of Snow White and the Huntsman for review this week and I am just about to start reading it. It's shorter than I thought it would be, but I don't think that's a bad thing - hopefully it'll be a great short read. I also received an ARC of Pushing the Limits which I am extremely excited to read - it looks so good!

 I received a pre-order that I won a little while back of Imaginary Girls which has been on my wish list since... forever! I made one swap this week and received Sean Griswold's Head in return - I've actually already read this and will be putting up a review for it tomorrow!

There were some good offers on at WHSmiths this week so I splashed out and bought three books that I'm so excited to read - Starters, which sounds awesome despite its creepy cover, Changeling, which will be my first Gregory book and The Night Circus. I also visited Barter Books yet again this week and obviously I can't leave that shop empty handed... so I came out with three very different books - The Acid House, The Pledge and A Kiss In Time. I also bought a very old copy of Listen, Little Man! by Reich on eBay, because I'm really interested in learning about the author.

I also have a package waiting for me at the Post Office Depo, but because it's Sunday, I'm unable to pick it up. Here's hoping it's another good book! ;)

What did you get this week?


  1. Great books!! I got Pushing the Limits too, i'm actually very pumped for it.
    And I hope you review The Night Circus soon? it sounds so good!

  2. OOh nice! Those are all new to me but I hope you enjoy them all!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

  6. The Night Circus sounds pretty cool, I've read quite a bit about it recently. Hope you enjoy your books!

  7. Oh, wow, look at all these awesome books! I'm so jealous you've got STARTERS. I saw it in the bookstore the other day but had to restrain myself from buying it because my money supply is... well, running low. :P I've also been seeing Phillipa Gregory's CHANGELING everywhere! Can't wait to hear what you think about that one. :)

    Enjoy your reads!
