Stacking The Shelves (36)

Note: This post of Stacking The Shelves is going to be obnoxiously long as the last time I participated was July 20th, so yeah, over two months worth of books here!

  1. I just bought some Roald Dahl books this week. I can’t wait to reread all of my childhood favourites! Looking forward to see your thoughts on the audiobooks (:

  2. Omg so much to say!
    -Yey Roald Dahl 😀
    -Warning: Mist has a fair amount of sexual abuse 🙁
    -I found that River Road was way better than Royal Street, so persevering is worth it!
    -Magic Marks the Spot was soooooo cute and fun!
    -CONGRATS about your quote in Bitter Kindom!!! Now I need to go see it (I almost never actually look at the quote pages >.>)

  3. I know you love Roald Dahl, so I am super excited you got all those audios! They will be perfect for the readathon too. Yay traditions.

    Also, that Frankenstein graphic novel looks AWESOME.

  4. So many books! So many amazing-looking books. I love The Burning Sky. I have an ARC with the old cover, but I really want a hardcover with the new cover. It looks so gorgeous! And don’t worry about feeling lazy with the list – I know how you feel. I just downloaded a ton of ebooks from Edelweiss. It’s bad. I have a schedule down… hopefully that will help!

    Anyway, enjoy your books, April! Have an awesome week 🙂

    Check out my STS post!

  5. I have read most of the Dahl books but not all of them-looking forward to doing so at some point in my reading career.

  6. Looks like you had a great week! I think my little girl would love that It’s Halloween, I’m Turning Green book. Too cute!

  7. I feel a little green with envy but that comes natural with so many amazing books. All of those were unsolicited. wow

    A lot of the YA books are on my wishlist. Congrats on getting quoted in the Bitter Kingdom. (my ordered copy is in the mail now) Burning Sky was amazing!!!. Also cant wait to read No One Else Can Have You. My aunt is trying to make a sweater to look like the cover.

  8. I neeeeeeeeeeed No One Else Can Have You. There is an itch in my fingers for that book. Can’t wait for it.
    And Frankenstein!! Looks awesome, think I want to get it for a friend of mine, think it’ll be right up his alley, and he’s always asking for recommendations.
    Epic haul! =)

  9. Annoying Orange How To Be Annoying: A Joke Book by Brandon T. Snider (Unsolicited) – I basically waved this at Tony and he’s like MOTHER OF GOD THOSE DAMN PUBLISHERS lolololol.

    HA. YES!

    Also, I need to borrow at least one of your audiobooks sometime soon. Maybe Matilda? We shall talk.

  10. Oh my gosh, those Roald Dahl audiobooks are B-E-A-U-Tiful! I’ve only listened to one Dahl book on audio – James and the Giant Peach, but it was fantastic. It was narrated by Jeremy Irons, and whoa baby, he rocked it.

    Anyway, enjoy and happy reading (and listening) 🙂

  11. Wow, you got some amazing books! I’m really looking forward to No One Else Can Have You, 3:59, Asylum, The Burning Sky and The Waking Dark! The all look really awesome, especially 3:59 and Asylum!

    Happy reading!
