Book Haul #51

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews and Letterbox Love is a UK edition hosted by Narratively Speaking. Here we can share what new books we've picked up this past week. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

Wow, what a week! I only left the house once this week to go and see Thor: The Dark World but thanks to the wonder of the internet I still had the pleasure of a few a lot of books arriving this week. I've decided that I might as well carry on until the end of the year and then come January 1st that's it. No more new books for me...
