The Rainbow Spines Book Tag/Stacking The Shelves (9)

July 13, 2013

So I'm sure most of you have seen "The Rainbow Spines Book Tag". A tag where you take a picture of your book spines in all the colours of the rainbow, you get me? Ok well recently I was tagged by two fab bloggers, Rita from Weaving Pages and Lucy from Queen of Contemporary. So now it's my turn :D 

As some of you may also know, last week was my Birthday and I was fortunate to get quite a few books that had been on my wish list for ages and around that time I also got some review books. What I'm trying to say is... a massive Stacking The Shelves is definitely needed. So I thought i'd try and succeed in this tag by using only my recent buys and it was tricky. But it wasn't a total fail as I only cheated twice because the books I chose for Indigo and Green were ones I had for a while. So with out further a-due here was my attempt at combining a haul and the Rainbow Spine Book Tag.

I tag Francoise over at My Crazy Bookish World and Rachel at Booktastic Reviews

      I've just started The 5th Wave after being so intrigued by all the mixed reviews I've seen. It's good so far. You're kind of thrown into the middle of the story which is a bit off putting but the writing is so, so good.

    17. That's an awesome rainbow! I really like it. And the books you were gifted are great, even though I only read The 5th Wave.

    18. Happy belated birthday, Sunny! It's awesome that you managed to get books from your wishlist - usually I only get a book or two for MY birthday. :P Also, I love the rainbow. You've got some sexy looking books there. ;) Hope you enjoy them, and have a wonderful week!
