Stacking The Shelves #1: THE VERY FIRST TIME!

Stacking The Shelves is a feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share what books (both physical and digital) they received, won, bought, and borrowed.

This is my first, ever Stacking The Shelves episode! I really wanna thank Tynga's Reviews for thinking of this wonderful feature!

To be honest, my shelf is not a pretty sight to see. It's just an old study table used as a mock bookshelf. I ain't rich folks, I wish I was. But I have some wonderful collections of books that I wanna show you!! YAAAAY!


I recently bought Hollow City since Ransom Riggs is coming to the Philippines along with his wife, Tahereh Mafi. I also got to buy the whole trilogy beforehand on a book hauling quest. Those were the temptation days!


Ransereh! Awww

I also got to buy John Green's The Fault In Our Stars, which I was sooo pumped up to have had! I've only read the book on an electronic copy, so having a physical feels soooo good!

Also got to buy Amy Tan's The Bonesetter's Daughter! It is my first Amy Tan book and I am psyched to read it! I know she's a genius and all, and I'm so excited that she got to be part of my pile! And then there's Cornelia Funke's Inkdeath which I bought at Booksale along with Amy's book! I've read the first two books in high school, and I honestly wanted to buy the 3rd one, but with fail and then opportunity presented itself when Eriele spotted it! Thanks Eriele! You are a booknerd's bestest friend!


Now I'm truly proud of this part of the feature where I get to gloat about the awesome swag I got from people who give away books! They will always be part of my life!

I got these awesome giveaways from Saab Magalona's blog Spell Saab! The First Phone Call from Heaven is a book I'd won back in December, and got Mitch Albom sign it when he came to the Philippines for a signing!


And then back in March, I won this graphic novel called Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples! I just love it when graphic novels have a good plot line!

Read a few pages, damn! I'm inlove with it!

And these babies were books I'd won from Kai's giveaway back in February! I've actually wanted to get a digital copy of The S Word for a review but when I got this from the mail, I flipped! Then there's Never Let You Go which I'm looking forward to read and review about! Thanks again Kai of Amaterasu Reads! ❤️ And thank you for the other swag that was in the parcel!


Am I considered as one now?

Kai, this has been my partner in crime lately! I love it sooo much, it has been my usual bookmark to my physicals!


I'm not big on letting people borrow my books really, but I do have the guts to borrow from others! LOL! I KNOW! I AM EVIL! But I've only borrowed from one person throughout the start of this year! Thank you for lending me your copies Joemar! I promise to keep them safe till June!
