manda-rae's Haul

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

This has been a fun week for me.  The husband and I took a mini-vacation to Lake Geneva for two days.  And while there, the local museum held a book and bake sale.  Which means I bought some awesome used books.  Hope everyone else had a splendid week.

Won from Hope, Faith and Books:

  • Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock


  • Vampires are Forever by Lynsay Sands
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I'm a sucker for vampire reads.  And of course I get home and find out this is book number 8 in a series.  Looks like I have seven more books to pick up and read before this one...
  • Night World, No. 1 by LJ Smith
  • The Help by Kathryn Stockett
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I absolutely enjoyed the movie.  It made me want to cry at the injustice people face because of their skin color.  And the fact that this happened not even fifty years ago. On another note, my mother said the book was good.
  • The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathon Stroud
  • The Golem's Eye by Jonathon Stroud
  • Ptolemy's Gate by Jonathon Stroud
  • The Ring of Solomon by Jonathon Stroud
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • This series looked like an interesting set.  I originally picked up the last one and realized it was a series.  Then I grabbed the whole series.  But seriously, the covers make me think about fantasy.  I hope these turn out to be awesome.
