Stacking the Shelves: January - April

Hiya guys! I love love love seeing other people's Stacking The Shelves posts, so I thought I start doing them myself. Initially, I was going to only do the last week, but I wanted to acknowledge all the lovely people who have sent me books over the last couple of months. I appreciate it so so much. <3
So here's the books I aquired January through April this year. From now on, I'll being doing these weekly or monthly, so it's not such a huge pile to get through. 
This will give you an idea of all the books I will be reading and reviewing over the next few months. I can't wait to read all of these!

  7. Wow, so many books and so many good ones. I am jealous. It's great that you wanted to mention all you've got for the year and thank everyone. ALthough, I wouldn't like seeing the physical piles of books from the past few months, it would make me feel guilty of the unread ones of which I have a lot.

    1. I know! I did make me feel slightly ill looking at all the books I've accumulated but excited at the same time. I can't wait to read every single one <3
