Stacking the Shelves: October 2018 Book Haul

Stacking the Shelves is a meme co-hosted by Reading Reality and Tynga's Reviews (the image above belongs to these blogs too). Each week bloggers share the books they got.

Since I haven't read anything at all so far in the month of November, it's safe to say I'm still in a massive reading slump. October was a little bit better which is why I do have some books to share in my October book haul!

1. Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer #2) by Laini Taylor 

Strange the Dreamer was one of my favourite books last year and I can't wait to read what happens next!

2. In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom by Yeonmi Park

I have been wanting to read this book since it came out. I requested it in my local library but it was rejected because it didn't fit into the collection... I believe this will be a difficult read but I'm so there for that.

3. Wildcard (Warcross #2) by Marie Lu 

Warcross was another one of my favourite reads last year and I really want to read it soon!

4. Lethal White (Cormoran Strike #4) by Robert Galbraith

I read the first three books this year and really want to read this one as well in the same year.

5. The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (Montague Siblings #2) by Mackenzi Lee

Same as with Warcross and Strange the Dreamer, I loved the first book and this was one of my most anticipated releases. It feels awful that just now that they have been released I have to be in such a slump.

6. Book Love by Debbie Tung

This was a fun and relatable read, perfect for book lovers! I got an e-arc from Netgalley and you can find my review here.

7. Loading Penguin Hugs: Heartwarming Comics from Chibird by Jacqueline Chen

Another Netgalley e-arc, already read and enjoyed it but still need to review it.

I also got the book The Indian Corps on the Western Front when I was in the Passchendaele museum because that was partly the subject of my thesis.

  1. OOH! I really want to read Strange the Dreamer. It's on my shelf - I just need to get around to it!

    Enjoy your new books!
    My STS post!

    1. Thanks! You should read Strange the Dreamer asap! It's fantastic!

  2. Wow! What a great haul! I also got Book Love and I can't wait to read it! Also, where did you get the UK edition of the blue Strange the Dreamer book? I saw the red Muse of Nightmares over on Book Depository, but I can't find the blue copy of Strange the Dreamer anywhere.

    Here’s my Stacking the Shelves!

    1. Thank you! I hope you'll enjoy Book Love as much as I did!
      I got the UK hardcover when it came out. I can still find the cover on (site based in the Netherlands and Belgium) but I'm not sure if it has sprayed pages.

  3. I haven't read any of the books on your list yet, but I want to read the Gentleman's Guid and Lady's Guide as well as Marie Lu's Warcross series books.

    Hope you have a great weekend. - Katie

  4. I need to snag a copy of Book Love soon!! Great haul!

    1. Thanks! You absolutely should read Book Love!

  5. Book Love looks like so much fun. Must try to get my hands on it :)

  6. Love the pic with the hardcovers- so colorful! And I need to read Wildcard too- I'm surprised I haven't already. so many books right now...

    Hope your slump passes soon! And have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you! I'm surprising myself as well that I haven't read any of my most anticipated releases yet due to this slump.

      Have a great weekend as well!

  7. I want to get to Strange the Dreamer so badly I love her writing so much!

    1. I can't wait to read the sequel! Laini Taylor's writing style is the best!
