Stacking the Shelves (#5)

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews where bloggers get together and show off what new reads are stacking up on their shelves.

CHRISTMAS HAUL! So for Christmas, I didn't get loads of books (well, not as many as I usually get, which is pretty much waves) down to the fact that a) I have about 50 to read on my shelf, and b) I've worked in Waterstones over Christmas; I'm constantly surrounded by books. However, with the Kindle voucher I received as well as some money, I've gathered together a pretty massive haul - and I have already begun to work my way through it!
