Stacking the Shelves [37]



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.

In case you have not noticed, dear readers, I skipped last week's Stacking the Shelves post. Why, you may ask? Well, if you insist. It was my birthday last week! I didn't do too much, but I did go out for dinner and drinks with my friend Jessica, and my girlfriend sent me a care package for the occasion, as did my mom & grandmother!

So this post is from the past two weeks, and will include a little birthday spam too :) Brace yourselves for a long one!

  5. I really want to read Second Star. :) I'm a HUGE Peter Pan fan (I was kind of overly obsessed with it when I was little) and now I read all the Peter Pan take-offs I can find. I hope you like it! My StS!

    1. Believe it or not, I had never seen Peter Pan (or read it) as a kid. But my girlfriend bought me a copy for my birthday last year (because it's "unacceptable to have never seen it') and now I'm hooked! If you enjoy adult books as well as YA, I'd recommend Hook's Pan by Marie Hall.
