Me and My Bookshelf (31)

This is where I feature the books I received, bought, gifted or won that are newly added in my physical shelf, which means no e-books and the like, and recount epic book hauling stories. It is usually posted on Saturdays.

The time I stop buying books will never arrive but at least I'm not spending as much these days. I'd say it's progress. This May I bought 9 books but only 2 of those are in this haul. I have five coming in the mail in a couple of days and two more in a month but I'll save them for another time.


BOUGHT:

The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen - I saw a hardcover copy online for only half of its original price including shipping and couldn't pass up the deal. I read this book more than a year ago, loved it so much and wanted to own a physical copy ever since.

Bruised by Sarah Skilton - Got the hardcover for $2. I'm including this in my June TBR. Hoping this is as kick-ass as it sounds.

SWAPPED:

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter - I swapped one of my books for the first book in the Gallagher Academy series. Only missing books 2 and 6 to complete my collection! The sender was nice enough to include another book (Return to Sender) in the package but I haven't heard anything about so we'll see.

FOR REVIEW:

Thank you so much HarperCollins for these ARCs. I already read Until the Beginning by Amy Plum and will be posting my review in a couple of days. I'm reading Endangered by Lamar Giles this June and my review will also follow so watch out for that.

    1. That would be amazing but I live in the Philippines and international shipping is costly (if you're not anywhere near me). It's so sweet of you to offer though. Thank you ;)

  2. I haven't actually heard of these books but Endangered sounds intriguing enough :) Hope you enjoy these books. <3 Benish | Feminist Reflections

    1. These are the online shops I frequent: Keeping8simpleonline, Printed Words and Books For Keeps. You can find them on Facebook. They're legit sellers. Keeping8simpleonline is also great for preorders outside the country :)
