Stacking the Shelves #90 - April Book Haul Part 2

Hello fellow bookgeeks!!!

I hope you are all doing wonderfully!

I took a 2-week break from writing/posting reviews. The pressure I was putting on myself to catch up was too much, and it was turning into an unwanted chore. I'm glad I took a break and just kept up with the fun posts/memes, read some great books and started up my old hobby of making/creating cards again!

Breaks and changes are good! I am so ready to get back into both reviewing and cardmaking again :)

I also received some ah-maaazing books too!
THE original hardcover edition of DELIRIUM!!! and, an italian paperback of SHIVER!!!

*What I received for review...
- EXQUISITE CORPSE (HB) by Penelope Bagieu (A) from First Second Books (Macmillan).
- FIND MOMO COAST TO COAST (PB) by Andrew Knapp (E) from Quirk Books.
- ROOK (ARC) by Sharon Cameron from Scholastic.

*Book trade/swap...
- DELIRIUM (Original HB *squeals*) by Lauren Oliver from Emma... thank you!!!

*What I purchased...
SHIVER (Wolves of Mercy Falls #1) (Italian PB) by Maggie Stiefvater
