Stacking The Shelves #4

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews that showcases the books you are adding to your shelves. These can include ebooks, physical books you have purchased or ones you have borrowed from friends or the library.

Due to my higher rent and the number of books that I currently own, I’ve put myself on a pretty strict book no-buy. The only exceptions to that are thrift stores and yard sales, but I’m not allowed to spend more than $10. So I’ve been relying on the number of books in my own collection that I haven’t read as well as falling back in love with my local library. Here are the books that I picked up this week:

Click covers for more info:

I devoured The Santangelos as soon as I picked it up. I started reading Jackie Collins books when I was about 13 and always loved the Lucky Santangelo series. I won’t go into major details but while it was in fact a perfect summer trashy read, it was not nearly as good as I had hoped it would be. Oh well. I have also already finished Everything Leads To You and Drawing Down the Moon. Next up are the Sookie Stackhouse books. I can’t believe I didnt read these before, thought the last time I tried to get into them, I couldn’t. Now, not only do I love the series but I pretty much have been devouring all the series by Charlaine Harris. Definitely enjoying the cozy mysteries like the Aurora Teagarden series.

What books are on your shelves this week? Leave me a comment and share away!

    Love library finds. I tried getting into the Sookie series before True Blood and then got sucked into the show and decided to read the series after the tv series finale. I tried the books again after the show but still could not get into it. I think I have to wait a bit more before trying again because I really did enjoy the first 2 books I read. And your comment gives me hope.

  • I haven’t read any Jenny Han books but I really want to read To All the Boys and PS. I Still Love You!

    Great haul! <3

  • I started reading the Sookie Stackhouse series ages ago, but lost interest in the last few books. I should dig them out of my tbr pile just to finish off the series. I haven’t even started on the Aurora Teagarden series yet. lol

    Good luck on the book buying budget. I always try, but after a few weeks, I fail miserably. *snort*

    Happy Reading!

  • I clearly need to put myself on a book buying ban. Im getting out of hand! I actually haven’t read much this weekend though which is weird!

  • Enjoy your new books! I remember loving the books I read about the Santangelos….this one I haven’t yet read.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.

  • I really want to read “PS I Still Love You’! Haven’t gotten to it yet.

    And yes, my plan is to get a library card! Books are expensive (new ones at least) and hard to own to be honest. They’re cherished but they’re heavy and you don’t use them day-to-day so they take up a lot of space. I’ve tried to slim down how often I purchase.

  • i LOVED the sookie stackhouse books… except for the last two. hated them with a passion!
    i recently read a few jenny han books and didn’t love them, but i heard ps i love you and to all the boys i’ve loved before are better, so they are on my list!

  • Lovely pictures!!! I have not been anywhere yet, as we go in the winters. I am a cancerian and I LOVE the sea. But, I cant swim LOL
    I love the snaps, seems you had a great time!
