Stacking the Shelves (#62) & Recap: The Box-Set Edition


STSmallStacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

So, how was everybody's week? Mines been good, this is a months worth of book haul, all bought, except for one I won, but otherwise, all me. I went a little mad. A little Box-Set mad, and I'm not showing you all of them in this one because that would be long. And bad.
 
 

 
 
I already own these books. I own three of The Hunger Games now, which I'm going to do a post some time showing you all of them together because the Collectors Edition is freaking gorgeous. But yeah, three editions of The Hunger Games, and two of Catching Fire and Mockingjay. BUT I WANTED THE HARDBACKS. I don't care. They're all pretty and yeah, did I need more versions of the same book? No. Did I want them? Yes. You can see what side won.


 


I finally own the Percy Jackson series I was just going to buy the first one (which was like £3 something on Amazon, but then I went on The Book Depository and saw the five, in a box set, all matching and perfect AND LOOK AT THE IMAGE THE SPINES MAKE. It was £18 something. How could I not? Besides, it would've cost me £20 something I think buying them separately, and I didn't like the covers.



 

Now, let's move onto the THRONE OF GLASS SERIES. I have read them. Except The Assassins Blade because I don't think I can handle that right now. I am happy and sad and confused and holy Celaena. I ALSO HAVE A SIGNED COPY OF HEIR OF FIRE! And yes, if they decide to do a box set of these, I will be buy it. It's only logical.



I had meant to make this short. *shrugs*
 
Books!
 
 
 

Nope, I am not linking these separately. My brain would die.



  
What did you get this week? :)

  5. There's nothing wrong with keepsakes when it comes to books. I have 3 different Harry Potter box sets because I love them so much. I only have the paperback box set for THG. Great haul!!

  8. I can totally understand your need for pretty hardcovers. If I had the money I would buy them too! I own the Percy Jackson in the boring covers. These matching spines are so much better! Happy reading :)

  15. Yahoo! You finally got the Percy Jackson series. I seriously hope that you will love it as much as I do, Kirsty. And wow, you bought another set of The Hunger Games? Thumbs up to you. Authors are very lucky with you. Hahahaha.

    And why? Why are you making me so jealous with your signed copy of Heir of Fire? One day, I am going to rob a bank and go to UK and steal your copy. XD

    Lovely haul, Kirsty! I hope you have a good week! <33
