Stacking the Shelves (47)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's an opportunity for everyone to share the new books that we've acquired.

It's been a while since I last did an StS post. October was such an awesome month for new releases, and I also couldn't resist buying some bookish things while I was in New York.

In all the years I lived in NYC, I never got to the Strand Book Store. I have no idea how that happened, but the Strand was one of my must-see places during the trip. I somehow ended up not buying any books for myself, only a copy of Allegiant for my cousin for his birthday. I did pick up this cool tote bag, though, which I plan to use for the library when I finally have time to start going again:

I've coveted the Game of Thrones Pop! vinyl figurines since I first saw them, so I made it my business to stop by the HBO Store in Manhattan to get the Jaime Lannister figurine. The box got a little crushed in the suitcase, but otherwise he's OK:

I also dropped by the local bookstore, Word, that had opened up in my old neighborhood in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, about a year before I moved. I found this signed paperback copy of Gayle Forman's Just One Day there, and though I already have the hardcover, I couldn't resist buying it.

I also bought these Jane Austen notecards, which will probably end up staying right where they are in the box because they're too pretty to actually use. My favorite is the one you see pictured on the right. The Statue of Liberty bookmark is from The Cloisters museum, which is an amazing place to visit if you love medieval art.

And finally, here are the books that I bought during the month of October:

Bought:

Just One Year by Gayle Forman
Fractured by Sarah Fine
The Shadowhunter's Codex by Cassandra Clare & Joshua Lewis
Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding

eBooks Bought:

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
Bold Tricks by Karina Halle
The Devil's Metal by Karina Halle
The Devil's Reprise by Karina Halle
Tragic by J. A. Huss
Manic by J. A. Huss

    1. Word isn't very big, but they had a lot of cool things. I still subscribe to their email newsletter, and I think they have a weekly YA book club. If I still lived in NY, I would totally be there every week!
