Book Haul #119, Or The One Where I Have A Birthday Giveaway...


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews where we can share what new books we've picked up this past week be they bought, borrowed or downloaded. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

Before we get down to the business of books, scroll down to the bottom and you'll see there's a giveaway! In honor of my birthday tomorrow and open internationally as long as the Book Depository ships to you (check here!) you may choose a book of your choice up to the value of $20. All you need to do is fill in the rafflecopter! The giveaway will close at midnight on January 31 so you have 8 days to enter.

Back to the books and it's been another good week in terms of books in, only two review books and one book bought... I know, I know! I said I wasn't buying any books but this one is different because it's my bestest book buddy's second novel and she's amazing and everyone needs to check it out :) Also amazing is the cover for Ali Shaw's new book, The Trees. I loved The Girl With Glass Feet so can't wait to get stuck into this one. In other news my replacement Kindle Fire still isn't here and Amazon are now saying end of February/beginning of March. Grrrr...

  26. Happiest Birthday to you! I hope you have the best bday ever tomorrow! As far as what book I would give you... Well, let me see. After some research, it seems you may be Fairy Tale Obsessed, but seem to have missed out on a lot of them last year. So, I would have to say a fairy tale of your choice, that you are absolutely dying to read!
