manda-rae's Haul

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

I had such a fun week this week.  Quite a few books came in the mail for me.  I love winning things.  It makes me feel awesome...  I hope everyone has a happy Saturday!

For Review:

  • Aquifer by Jonathan Friesen
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Something more precious than gold, more precious than money.  In fact, it's needed to sustain life.  And those in power control it.  Water is scarce in this world.  Sounds intriguing, no?  Thanks goes to Zondervan publishing for this goodie.

Won from Beth Revis:

  • Defy the Dark edited by Saundra Mitchell plus swag
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Isn't this cover awesome?!  And more short stories to become acquainted with new authors.  I'm kind of looking forward to it.  Plus I got some nifty bookmarks; they say "Don't be afraid of the dark".  Since I have extras, let me know if you want one and I can mail it to you.  Thank you Saundra and Beth!
  • Shades of Earth by Beth Revis
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • If another copy of an awesome book gave me the same feel-good first-read thrill experience, I'd totally take advantage of this new copy.  But...  I can totally read my other copy a second time.   So...  I'm trying to decide what to do with this copy: offer up for swap on swapping sites, donate it to other readers, or maybe a giveaway.  I'm not sure, feedback anyone?

Won from Lili's Reflections:

  • Prophecy by Ellen Oh (signed) plus bookmark
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I've been wanting to get my hands on a good fantasy.  And this one seems like something fun to read.  And it's signed (see inset picture).  Cool beans!  Thanks Ellen and Lili!
  • Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

From the Library:

  • Survive by Alex Morel
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Prior to winning the butt load of books, I thought I might pick some books from my tbr pile that I wanted to read last year but didn't.  This was one of them.  And it's all about surviving...

Purchased (e-edition):

The Moon Dwellers by David Estes
An indie dystopian.  I like these indie authors.  He was celebrating his one year a couple of weeks ago by offering free copies, and I thought I'd snag one while I could.

Yellow Socks and Blood Spots by Bailey J Thompson
Another freebie that I snagged.  I like being notified of these awesome freebies.  Of course, this book deals with more serious issues than what I'm used to.  But it still looks good.
