Stacking the Shelves (5)

Stacking the Shelves is a new weekly meme hosted by Tynga of Tynga's Reviews. It's a weekly post where book bloggers share and showcase the books they received throughout the week.


Despite posting somewhat regularly the last few weeks, you may or may not have noticed I've been kind of MIA the past few weeks when it comes to being online in general. The reason for that is that I'm currently on vacation and traveling so with the time difference, I'm not always online when I usually am. And since I've been away from home I have no idea what books have shown up. BUT this past week I was in Ireland and visited a couple bookstores so I actually have books to show. Not many, but here they are anyways.

Purchased:




- Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson - I still have yet to read Morgan Matson's other book, Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, but I have heard nothing but amazing things about Second Chance Summer so I decided to pick it up when I saw it at the bookstore. And since I have limited books with me, it's probably going to be my next read.

- Irish Ghost Stories - Like I said, I was in Ireland and saw this book in a gift shop and decided to pick it up. I haven't read any of the stories yet, but they do all sound quite creepy. All the stories are also written by well-known Irish writers like Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde amongst others, so it should make for interesting reading.

So that's it for me this week...and probably for the next couple of weeks as far as Stacking the Shelves posts are concerned. I'm back home at the beginning of July and you can probably expect a pretty big Stacking the Shelves post when I get back since it will feature all the books I'll have received since the middle of May. I'm not going to lie, I'm kinda of excited to see what's going to be waiting for me when I get home.
