Stacking the Shelves - July

As the majority of you will know this month Sophie and I have been on a book ban! We made it from July 1st to August 1st without buying a single book... I know I'm a little shocked to!!
We both had moments when it looked like we were going to fail but we stuck it out now we can officially say we are no longer book buying addicts. Detox done.
SO I guess you're thinking, well if she was on a book ban there won't be much to show in July's Book Haul... well you would be wrong!! 
Here's my July Stacking the Shelves.

So that's what I got last month. The book ban saved me a lot of moneys but not so much shelf space. The ban may be over but I don't think I'm going to be buying many books in August, I mean I don't really need any... okay maybe just one or two.

Until next month!!


  1. Very nice haul!! You were really good as far as keeping with your book ban, so the giveaways must have been karma's answers to keeping up with that! ;)
    Aaaaah, I adore adore the special edition of Fangirl!! IT'S SO PERFECT!! Now I need a special edition of Attachments to happen!!

    1. Ah I know right? And that's not even all the books I won... I'm still waiting on about 4 :P
      It's so cute!! I still don't have Attachments... it's the one I'm missing from my little Rowell collection.
