Stacking the Shelves [28]



Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we get to gab on about the books we've won, bought, or otherwise received in the past week. I got more books than I was anticipating this week... I guess entering so many Halloween hops paid off! But they did help to make my week brighter. This past week, I had to go to the emergency dental care center, for what I learned is an erupted tooth. I have an appointment on Monday to get it extracted. I'm freaking out, because I've never had to have a tooth pulled before. Wish me luck, guys. Now, to distract myself with books.... I ended up with a few cookbooks. 'Tis the season to impress my in-laws. Falalalala.....

  1. This is the first time I have seen the Gaiman book. Is it a YA?

    1. I don't think it's YA specific. It's a fantasy/sci-fi graphic novel.

  3. The Gaiman looks good. I'm a big fan, although I've not read many of his graphic novels - just parts of Sandman.

    Here's how my week went.
