Stacking the Shelves - June 2014 Edition

I tried. I really did try, but every week when I sat down to do the STS post, I would start to yawn like a maniac and have to go to bed. And while I am tired as all get out, I just can't keep letting the list grow, so I have committed myself to post this before the month ran out.

So, here it is. These are the books I've managed to pick up this month.

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

  1. Wow that's some selection. I really love the covers on your Manga purchases. Happy reading.

    1. I've been on a used book buying binge. Plus, after I saw Maureen Johnson at the Book Blogger's Con, I just had to get some of her books. Aaaand, I can' refuse a coupon for the book store. The problem is now I don't know what book to read.

  2. Awesome collection of books! I really need to read Maureen Johnson's books because I think they'll be great reads, but haven't got around to it yet. Need to remedy that! Where did you find a used book store? Looks like you struck gold!

    1. No used book store. I've been buying them on Amazon Marketplace. Some of the copies that are "Like New" are really anything but. That's the risk I suppose. I will buy "Good" and up. It's a crap shoot as to the condition. However, the big B&N on 17 has that Annex and they have a lot of used books. I've bought some there recently.

  3. Nice haul, I've been wanting to read Toxic Heart myself :D
    Hope you'll enjoy your new books!

    My new additions ;)

    1. I started reading Mystic City and I really got into it in the sample I read. I am anticipating a good series.

  4. OMG you got so many great books! You are going to love Crash Into You. Happy reading!

    1. I don't have Katie McGarry's new book yet, but I am going to hold out for eBook at this point. I know eventually it'll be on sale for about $2.00. Plus, eBooks take up no room.
