Stacking The Shelves (118): SDCC Version

STSmall_thumb[2][2]Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, 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!

We attended San Diego Comic Con once again this year and had a blast! This year's activities for us were more kid-focused, so I did not engage as many authors as I probably would have on my own. But that's okay. The family time was well worth it. But I did still manage to get some new goodies added to my shelves. I couldn't leave SDCC with out some sweet freebies and spending some cash :)

Accessorize Me:
When my eyes locked with this beautiful R2D2 purse from across the exhibit hall, I knew it had to be mine. How could I resist?


  1. Nice haul! I'm so jealous you were at SDCC! I could only dream about going. You got some fantastic books, and I love the purse! Lucky you! Have a great weekend!

  4. Awesome pile of books. I hope you love all of your new books. Reawakened looks good. Illuminae is totally huge, but I think it's going to be awesome.

  6. You've got a great haul this week, lots of awesome looking books. I hope you enjoy them all :)

    Jealous you got to go SDCC!!! I'm from London, so it's far too expensive and far to even consider. Currently attending the London Film and Comic Con and it's really good, but nowhere near as big or as awesome as the SDCC!!!

  7. I'm so jealous that you got to go to sdcc! I was in San Diego a few years ago during comic con and I really enjoyed it. I didn't get to go inside comic con, but I did all the free stuff and it was fun! I'm jealous that you have a signed copy of Ready Player One too. It's my favorite book!

  8. I am currently listening to Armada on my Audible app, and I am loving it so much. The gamer side of me is in love with this book. And with Wil Wheaton doing the audio, you can't go wrong. With that said, I am really wanting to pick up a copy of Ready Player One after I finish it.

    I hope you enjoy Ready Player One, and everything else you got this week! And I am glad you had a great time at SDCC!

    Here is my StS
