Stacking the Shelves #9

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly book haul meme hosted by Tynga of Tynga's Reviews.

You might be wondering why there's a hardcover copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone in my mailbox. In truth, I've had that copy for ages. No, really, ever since it came out a year ago. Why is it back "in" my mailbox? Because I went to Laini Taylor's signing at the Glendale Americana and yes, if you're wondering, it got signed.

You'll also notice that there are two copies of Days of Blood and Starlight there. In truth, there is a third copy, but that one is on my Kindle. The story behind that? Well, the Kindle copy is thanks to Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and I bought the US copy of Days of Blood and Starlight in hardback at the signing; but the UK copy? That came by the Book Depository--because yes, I pre-ordered it--and I was extremely happy that it arrived in time for Laini's signing! The best part? It's a hardcover!

Yes, they're all signed to me. And Laini's signing? It had a great turnout and she is freaking awesome. If you ever get a chance to meet her, definitely do so!
