Stacking The Shelves [47]

------------------
 
Hey, everyone! It's been a while since I've done one of these. I apologize for the lack of vlog and wide plethora of books. As of my 18th birthday, I've put myself on a book buying ban except for the select few amazing ones due to the fact that I want to help out with some costs for college (like textbooks or something since I'm not much help financially otherwise). So, bear with me with the small haul!
 

Trade
The Ward by Jordana Frankel (Thank you Jodie from Uniquely Moi Books!)
 
Gifted
Poison by Bridget Zinn (Review)
This was pre-ordered for me for my birthday because I enjoyed my ARC so much. Thank you to my aunt! 
 
What did you add to your shelves this week?
 

I'm a 18 year old from a small town in New Jersey that's a newcomer to the book blogging world. Because I am an incoming senior in high school the closest thing that I have to a job is being a volunteer at the town library, so I spend most of my time reading and persuading my parents to let me buy more books!

  5. Hi Lili,I think we can all identify with the cost aspect of being a book addict, smart of you to budget for the textbooks etc. I've got a ton of undreads books I've bought over time, so I'm sticking to Netgalley for my reads over the next few months too. I've picked up Poison this week too. Happy reading :)

  7. Sometimes having a small haul is a good thing. Remember it's not always about quantity, but quality. Enjoy your new books. The Ward looks amazing.

  12. I am SO SO excited to read The Ward! Of course, that may partially be due to the fact the author was my college roommate and one of my bridesmaids. But still... even if I wasn't friends with the author I would be excited for it! So excited that there's just over a month till it''s debut!

  13. I just got Poison today, so that will go in my next post. If you're going to go small, you might as well get great books. :)

  15. Hi, Lili! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Well, don't feel bad about having a small haul. I understand, since I am a compulsive book buyer myself. Both of the ones you have here look GREAT! I want them both!! Lol. Hope you have a WONDERFUL birthday, and enjoy your books!! (Note to Lili's parents: Hey, it's the girl's birthday! Give her a $50.00 Amazon or B&N gift card, and she'll thank you forever!!)

  18. Happy Birthday!

    Budgeting for your textbooks is an excellent idea. Don't forget to take advantage of your library for new reads and check to see if they have used book sales. I pick up many books that way.

    Also, happy birthday! May it be very bookish and awesome. :)

  22. Hi Lili--If you have a Nook or Kindle, check out bookbub.com. You can sign up for a daily newsletter that includes lots of free ebooks. All of the Kindle and Nook books in my haul this week were free downloads from Book Bub, and there were lots more I didn't select.

    Here's my haul: http://www.bookclublibrarian.com/2013/03/sundays-weekly-book-recap-9.html
