// stacking the shelves: books i got in august

In comparison to all the books I got last month in the US, the books I purchased for the August is pretty disheartening. Most of the books I was looking for wasn't available in the Philippines. It was either in a different store or they didn't have it all. So what I'm going to do is write a post on all the books I got for this month. Doesn't necessarily have to be bought by me. Not only will this post feature the physical books I purchased but so will my pre-orders. ebooks, ARCs I got and some finished copies I won. I will indicate in the caption beside the photo if it's purcased, an arc or a finished copy I won.
