Stacking the Shelves #81: Belated December Book Haul and Comic Book Haul #5

Hello bookish friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful start to the new year!!!
I'm trying to get as organized as possible... which is what I do every year, and then I usually start to fall apart by the beginning of March, lol! But, this year, will be different! I have a physical planner! I have already pre-scheduled some posts and have a reading schedule for my potential TBR! Which is something I have never planned out before... 
wish me luck ;) 

Now... I got a few more things that I received last month to share with you!

(Please note, that the majority of my haul is Young Adult. Otherwise, books that aren't will be noted with either (A) for Adult, (NA) for New Adult, (MG) for Middle Grade, and (C) for Childrens books.)
