manda-rae's Haul

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

I've finally picked up reading after going for over a week without a book.  Life has just been busy with work and painting...  But I finally have a weekend, and I'm spending it reading and blogging.

From the Library:

  • The Rising by Kelley Armstrong
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I started reading this one, and I'm completely into it.  With Kelley Armstrong's books, its hard to not like them.
  • Hidden by Sophie Jordan
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • The book covers for this series are always so striking.  And this one's no different.  Gorgeous red hair.  And while the second made me want to pull my hair out with all the indecisiveness, I still want to finish this series.
  • Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • It's Cassandra Clare!  If I didn't have a strict buying budget (and a ginormous backlog of books to read), I would have bought this one and read it ages ago.  But I'm a patient woman (with a budget).

For Review (e-edition):

Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace
I was kind of excited when the author contacted me about this one.  The cover is so cool.  And it seemed like it was right down my alley.  Thanks goes to Cameron Jace for providing me a review copy.


Old Before My Time: Hayley Okines' Life with Progeria by Hayley Okines
So I snagged this freebie almost immediately when I saw it.  Have you heard Hayley's story?  It's amazing because she has one of the best attitudes in the world, and this world doesn't necessarily give her good reasons for it.  She's an amazing role model.

Author Interviews:
And in case anyone's interested in my painting fiasco...  (I might add more finished pictures in a month once we actually have the kitchen finished, but I'm taking a major painting break.)

Don't hold your breath for the finished product picture...


  1. Hey painting takes a lot of time. Don't be too hard on your self. Seems like your library had some interesting books for you this week. Come check out my haul this week.

  2. I really need to get to Cassandra Clare. Hmm...maybe after I finish the "Twilight series" read through.

    Happy reading!
