Stacking the Shelves #74

Stacking the Shelves

IT'S SATURDAY! YAY! But I have school on Monday, I can't believe the holidays are OVER. *flails*

Today is my dad's birthday'! I bought him Stephen King's latest book, Revival which he was incredibly happy about. And I drew Skulduggery Pleasant on his birthday card as we're marathoning the series. Yes, it's a bookish birthday and that is fantastic!

I seriously can't believe the holidays are practically over and I barely read any of the books I was planning to. It's laughable how terrible I am at sticking to bookish lists. Really. I've been visiting the library frequently (I don't know why, as I have enough of my own books to read, but I'm not exactly "logical"when it comes to books) and they've had quite good books in. So, naturally, I take them out. I'm also currently marathoning the Skulduggery Pleasant series which I LOVE and I'm currently on book 6. After that, I'll only have 3 books left and that makes me want to cry in a corner with a tub of ice cream.
So I went to the library again and I got some more books (some are non-fiction!) and I'm really excited to read them all! 

The Haul:

Library Books:
Science 101: PhysicsOur UniverseMortal Coil (Skulduggery Pleasant, #5)Death Bringer (Skulduggery Pleasant, #6)Kingdom of the Wicked (Skulduggery Pleasant, #7)
I never read non-fiction but because I want to study astrophysics I decided it's high-time that I started learning more about solar systems and comets and the speed of light and other topics of that sort. I ALSO GOT MORE SKULDUGGERY BOOKS and I just need number 8, which I'm waiting for my library to get in. They're so good. I really love this series, like, a lot.

Review Books:
Fairy Tale Reform School: Flunked
I received this from Netgalley to read and I'm planning on reading it this month! I LOVE THE COVER, it really is adorable. If I like this book, I'll definitely be buying me a copy just so that I can have such a gorgeous cover on my shelves!

Have you read any of these? Did you like them? Did you not like them?

  1. Nah. I haven't read any of these. You seem to love Skulduggery series; I wonder if it's something my daughter would love as well.


    Enjoy!

  3. I'm sure she will! It's the classic battle of good vs evil, some elemental magic, banter and wonderful characters! :)

  9. Fabby haul! Flunked looks like a great read - and I don't even know what it's about, I'm going off the cover. That cover, alone, would attract me straight to it in a book shop, haha! ;)

  16. I'm like doing an epic epic sloooow marathon of Skulduggery. XD I love them os much but it always takes me forever to finish a series. And I've TOLD myself I'm not allowed to get anymore books out until I've made my tbr a bit more manageable. Seriously, there's like 23 books on there right now and that's kind of daunting. 0.0

  17. The cover of Jen Calonita's book is absolutely beautiful! I used to really liked the Secrets of my Hollywood Life books by her but never ended up finishing with the series because I wasn't able to find copies of the books from my local bookstore at the time.

    Thanks for stopping by at my blog earlier and happy reading!

  18. Jen Calonita is such a good writer of fluffy, cute stories. I have read many of hers, but got denied for this one :(((( Hope you enjoy though and looking forward to reading your review! Happy New Year, by the way!!
