Stacking the Shelves – Week 23

What is Stacking The Shelves all about?

We are all book lovers and the need to share our enthusiasm is sometimes overwhelming. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

If you’re anything like me, you are probably hoarding books and even though you are excited about your latest book arrival, it might be a while before you get to review it and Stacking The Shelves is a good way to express your undying enthusiasm for those titles! (Hosted by!)

1. “Monsieur Hire” – for the family dvd/bookshelf

So, I took a bit of a hiatus last week as I was suffering from terrible allergies and fibro pain, and the weekend before I totally partied hard by visiting an old friend and going to the Madoka Magica Movie Event at the Downtown Independent, Downtown LA – and it was HUGELY fun. So I needed a week off after all of that. Anyway, this is a great batch this week! Thanks to friend of the blog Rosa Chinensis for gifting me the “Ayashi no Ceres” manga, and to HMH, HarperTeen, and Pyr/Prometheus for sending me awesome stuff this week to read! Same to my ARC swap partners.  I can’t wait to get reading!  (Also, for the family DVD shelf – if you haven’t seen “Monsieur Hire”, you simply MUST. One of my favorite French films of all time, and brutal to read. I think I need to read the original novel now!)


1. “Afterschool Charisma: Volume 7” by Suekane Kumiko (via EW/Viz)

2. “Jormungand: Volume 10” by Takahashi Keitarou (via EW/Viz)

3. “Loveless: Volume 10” by Kouga Yun (via EW/Viz)

Awesome manga haul this week thanks to Viz! I’m so happy to be reviewing for you guys, and these are some of my favorite series, period (even if I have to catch up with some of them). Thanks to Viz, Edelweiss, and S&S for granting me access this week!



I got some goods from the Madoka Magica Movie Event last week, but I didn’t have time to properly photograph them. Temporarily, you can see them on my instagram feed here, here, here, here, and here. I’ll do better coverage next week, I promise!
