manda-rae's Haul

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

The week before this one was a rough week for me.  I ended up in my hometown of Salt Lake City for a few days, and it was on a sad note.  A family member passed away in a tragic accident.  So let's just say the rest of my life sat on the back-burner for a while.  But I'm back and hopefully ready to read more than I'm currently reading.  I hope everyone's had a better week than me!

For Review:


From the Library:

  • The Diviners by Libba Bray
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I have to admit that the last time I read Libba Bray's books was in 2007 with the finale to the Gemma Doyle series (which I absolutely loved).  Of course, when I picked this one up, my eyes about bulged out due to the size of the book; I had conveniently forgotten how big her book are.  Anyways, looking forward to it.

For Review (e-edition):

Watering Heaven by Peter Tieryas Liu
This book of short stories sounds like it's going to have some hilarious scenes mixed into a bigger picture.  It's definitely something different, but I think that helps refreshen my view on reading.  Thanks goes to Peter Tieryas Liu for my review copy.
