Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Each week bloggers post the books they purchased or received.
As I only got a couple of books for my birthday, I'm combining this Stacking the Shelves with books I bought at a fair for cheap earlier this summer.
1. The Rose and the Dagger (The Wrath and the Dawn, #2) by Renee Ahdieh
My lovely friend Sarah got me unexpectedly a book for my birthday and I loved it!
2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
My parents got me two classics for my birthday!
3. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
I also got myself two books:
4. And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga #1) by Kiersten White
5. Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff
This is by far the most beautiful fantasy book in hardback I've ever seen! It's stunning! I normally buy paperbacks but I actually found the hardback cheaper and I'm soooo glad I did! It's gorgeous! Currently reading this one and really enjoying it!
The next part of the haul, I got at the fair: Boekenfestijn. It's a fair that tours Belgium and the Netherlands. Usually I find some books I'm interested in but otherwise wouldn't have bought. This time around, however, I found a lot of books I actually have on my to be read list!
6. In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters
I was lucky to find this in hardcover because it is gorgeous! Hopefully, I'll find the time to read it soon!
7. Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor
Hardcover as well.
8. Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse
This was strictly a cover buy; hardback as well.
9. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
10. Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen
I also mainly bought this because of the stunning cover, however I like fairy tale retellings and have been searching a good Hook retelling; any recommendations?
11. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
I've heard great things about this one!
12. Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
13. Ivanhoe by Walter Scott
14. The Castle by Franz Kafka
15. Empress (Godspeaker Trilogy #1) by Karen Miller
I don't know anything about this book but I've heard good things about the author!
Book hauls always give me mixed feelings. On the one hand, I love talking about the books I got. On the other hand, I thought I had been restraining myself with regard to buying books, however, book hauls make you see how many you actually got. I do have to say the book fair was in July :) And the books at I bought at the fair were all cheaper than five euros, even the hardbacks! I couldn't miss that opportunity! :)
