manda-rae's Haul

Stacking the Shelves consists of books we received in the last week, hosted by Tynga's reviews.

I haven't been able to do a whole lot of reading this past week.  I ended up with a sore throat two days ago and somehow am making a quick recovery now.  I like short sicknesses...  And once again, due to my excessive book buying sprees and lack of reading opportunities, I'm placing myself on a book-buying ban.


  • The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Did you guys see the Barnes and Noble bargain buys this past week?  There were a lot.  And I got to snag this one.  I absolutely adored the movie and am hoping the book is even better.
  • The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Another bargain buy.  Actually, I adored The Historian (an awesome history read involving Dracula).  It was one of the first gifts my husband bought for me when we first started dating (and he was still getting to know me).
  • Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite authors.  Her paranormal romance books are amazing.  And the cover for this one is actually one I like (and am not ashamed to show off even though everyone can totally tell I'm reading some psycho-romance-steamy-type-of-book - which I totally am).
  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • It feels like I've hopped onto the hip-and-trendy slash read-what-everyone-else-is-reading bandwagon this week.  No worries, I'll fall off of it later.  But back to the book, I swapped this with someone else (via Swap).  I've heard good things about this one.

For Review (e-edition):

Chastity by R Rodriguez
Before I say anything about the book, I have to say the book covers for this series are absolutely breathtakingly beautiful!  I read the first book, Grace, earlier this year and enjoyed it.  So I'm definitely looking forward to reading this one.  Thanks goes to R Rodriguez for providing me a review copy.


  1. Nice haul! :) I haven't read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo yet because I heard it was super graphic and I'm a bit squeamish so I kind of passed on it but I hope you really enjoy it! :)

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  2. Your tastes are certainly eclectic this week. That cover of Chasity is so pretty.


  3. I've read The Time Traveler's Wife a few times and still love it - I've never seen the movie I think that's probably good because it looks so different from the book.
    Happy reading.

  4. Looks like a great week to me! Enjoy your new books! :)
    New follower here :) Here's my StS post this week:

    I've had quite a haul this week, too: The Best Kind of Mail


  8. Great set! The Time Traveler's Wife is an incredible book. I liked the movie but the book was so much better.
