Stacking the Shelves (45) – Vacation Haul and Free Comic Book Day!

logo 1

This week I’ll once again be taking part in Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. The idea of Stacking the Shelves is to talk about the books you’ve bought, borrowed, etc. and show off and talk about your purchases and borrows. This is basically the perfect feature for me because I buy way more books, and read way more books, than I’ll ever be able to review. I’ll most likely talk about the stores I bought the books at as well, especially if they’re independent stores.

This meme is once monthly for me, where I’ll round up what I’ve gotten since last month’s post.

This month I purchased 11 books, 16 comics, I received 1 book on NetGalley, and 7 books from publishers, borrowed 8 books, and got 7 comics on Free Comic Book Day. Check them out below!
