manda-rae's Haul

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

Today (Friday - it'll be yesterday by the time this is posted) has been a super long day for me.  It started at two in the morning for me.  I had to go to work really, really early in order to make my closing appointment.  And now for the exciting news: my husband and I are proud homeowners now.  A long and exhausting day ends with a good note.  Now we'll be spending the next week moving things into the house.  And maybe one day, I'll be able to unpack all of my books that have been sitting in boxes for years.

For Review:

  • Libyrinth by Pearl North
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • A book regarding librarians in a fantasy world.  It sounds curious to say the least.  And I didn't notice until I received the cover, but there's a little guy sitting on the girl's shoulder; kind of creepy if you ask me.  The third book is coming out in a couple of weeks, so I thought I'd check this series out.  Thanks goes to Tor Teen for my review copy.

From the Library:

  • Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • When I first heard about this book, I was a little hesitant because Tiger Lily plays such a small roll in Peter Pan.  But then I saw some good reviews (and some not-so-good ones) and wanted to know more.  I mean, I am a fan of Peter Pan.  I annoy my husband because I like to watch Peter Pan every once in a while.  So, I thought this book might be perfect for me because I'll get a new twist to one of my favorite tales.
