A Birthday Book Haul, From Me To Me | Stacking The Shelves #6

Stacking The Shelves #6

Hello bookworms! Happy Saturday to you all. Now, you may know that I had my birthday on the 25th of June – yay me, I turned 17 –  and what I did to celebrate was go out and spend over a hundred dollars on books. A birthday present from me, to me! That’s just how I roll. 
So I bought 6 books. And I’m so happy I bought them. There is one book that was an accident – a very funny accident – which you will read about in a minute. So without further delay, I present to you… my birthday book haul!

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley


I’m sure you all already have heard of this book on my blog through my July TBR postI strolled into the book store, saw this book, picked it up, stroked the cover and thought: You are officially mine. 

And here it is today! Behold, Magonia! 

Alienated by Melissa Landers


I’ve been absolutely dying to get my hands on this book! When I saw it in the book store, I snatched it. Literally. 

This book feels so good. That may sound weird, but seriously, it feels good. It’s heavier than the other books in this haul, despite being the same size. I love it! It may not be good for travelling purposes, but to hold, it just feels so real. 

I can’t wait to read this book.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell


I’m sure you all know that I have already read this book. (Click here to see my review). However, I did not own my own copy, as I borrowed a copy from my local library. I went out to the bookstore to buy books with this book in mind. 

I love this edition. But I am also planning to get the collector’s edition hardback because… why the heck not?! It’s one of my favourite books of this year, for sure. 

The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutoski


Okay, here’s the accident. I got home to discover I bought the second book in the series. Damn it. This is what happens when you make the book’s titles so similar! 

I literally slapped myself in the face for picking the wrong book. BUT, I’m glad I have one of the books in the series, which will compell me to buy the first book and begin reading it. 

This series is apparently AMAZING, so I really want to read it soon!

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness


Another book you would have already heard from my July TBR post!

Isn’t this cover the most gorgeous cover you’ve ever seen?! If the premise wasn’t so intriguing, I would have bought it solely for the cover. It’s irresistible. 

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee


This was also mentioned in my July TBR post. Look at this edition! Isn’t it simply stunning?! I saw it in my city’s bookstore and immediately fell in love with it. 

For almost two years now I’ve wanted to read and own a copy of this highly acclaimed book, and now, my wish has come true. Thankyou me, for giving me this as a birthday present! (giggle) 

That is all for my birthday book haul! I’m so happy with these beautiful additions to my bookshelf! 

What’s your most favourite book that you’ve added to your shelves lately?
Do you have any of these books on your shelves?

  1. Such great pictures and books! XD Magonia and Alienated are both on my TBR, and their covers are gorgeous, don’t you think? And I’m really excited for you to read the Winner’s Curse & the Winner’s Crime, they’re both great books. And I know how it feels to pick up the wrong book in a series — heaven knows I’ve done it countless times!
    By the way, I love your edition of To Kill a Mockingbird, it’s so pretty! Awesome haul (and happy belated birthday)!

  2. That sounds like a nice birthday present to yourself! A splurge at the bookstore. My favorite parts of this were when you were stroking the cover of one book and then literally slapping yourself in the face. 😂 Hopefully that didn’t happen. I only have To Kill a Mobkingbird. Which I think you already know.

  3. Happy Belated Birthday! And what a great book haul! I really want to read the Winner’s Curse series sometime. It sounds awesome. And I need a copy of Fangirl for my collection, too! 🙂

  4. For some reason I can’t see your pictures, but great haul! I need to go and buy Magonia as well as I’m reading it for a bookclub. I totally understand your need to get the Fangirl’s collector’s edition! I really want it as well haha. And don’t worry, I’ve accidentally bought sequels quite a few times as well!

  5. Yeah! The winner’s curse and the winner’s crime title and cover will look similar sometimes you may mistake one for another if you haven’t read the book yet and I’ve got paperbacks of both books lying around on my shelf to be read but I wanted to read the whole trilogy at once so may be I’ll just wait for final installation or give into temptation. 🙂
