Stacking The Shelves #92

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly haul meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality. It is about sharing enthusiasm for the new books added to our shelves – be it physical, ebooks, galleys or borrowed from the library.

Though this is a weekly haul meme, *I* will be doing this fortnightly

Okay, I know 27 books sounds a lot, but it has been 2 weeks and most of these are sequels/manga volumes, so it is kinda okay?
