manda-rae's Haul

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

I'm currently in Georgia picking up my new used car.  It'll be a fun 14 hour drive home to Wisconsin on Sunday.  But anyways, I will enjoy my time with my family while it lasts.  Hope everyone had a good book week (and got more reading time in than I did)!

Gifted (from the Holiday Card Exchange hosted by Turning the Pages):

  • Christmas Card from Pragya at Reviewing Shelf - This card came all the way from India.  It's traveled further than I've ever traveled in my life.  Holy smokes.  Happy this gal thought of me!  Thank you!

From the Library:

  • Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Did you know there's a movie coming out?  When I went to see The Hobbit, the preview for this movie along with the preview for Star Trek was the highlight of my night (I'm really not a fan of LOTR which also extends to The Hobbit).  So yes, I'm looking forward to the movie.  And no, I haven't read the book yet...
  • Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction edited by Carrie Ryan
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I must admit that I do not do well with short story compilations.  But I really grabbed this book for the sole purpose of reading Richelle Mead's short story.  Who knows, I may read the whole book, but I'm not sure that I may pull much from it.

Purchased (e-edition):

Cora: The Unwilling Queen by Amy Hutchinson
The cover and the description made me grab it instantly.  I mean, who doesn't like a good Persephone/Hades retelling?

manda-rae's Past Week


The Dog: Gizmo
Well, he's old news.  But since he decided to show up in everyone of my shots, I thought I'd get an actual picture of him.  He decided to lick my Beautiful Creatures book after I took the picture.  I think he's decided on what I'm reading next...


  1. Gizmo probably wanted some attention. Yes he's cute and wants some attention. I still need to read Beautiful Creatures. You got some awesome books.


  2. You have to read Beautiful Creatures to prepare for the movie!!! :D I hope you enjoy it like I did!! Enjoy your haul :D
