manda-rae's Haul

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

Another Saturday!  Although we're supposed to get about a foot of snow overnight.  So it'll be a day spent next to the fireplace.  I hope everyone has a good weekend before Christmas...


  • Christmas Tree Card from Kimberly at Turning the Pages (far left)
      • Kimberly set up this Christmas card exchange.  And I love sending and receiving Christmas cards (it makes me feel special to get stuff in the mail specifically for me - unless it's a bill).  Thanks Kimberly!
  • Foldout Snowmen Card from Dianne (top middle)
      • This card is by far one of the cutest.  It folds out to a family of snowmen.  And the front looks like there are a bunch of snowmen behind a door.  So cute!
  • Snowman Card from Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf (top right)
      • So pretty.  Looking at snowmen and snow.  It's pretty in the pictures.  But I'd rather not live in the cold where there's lots of snow (I'm obviously living in the wrong state).  Thank you!
  • Snowman Card from Erin at Quixotic Magpie (bottom left)
      • Again snow!  It looks so beautiful and harmless.  Yet, I'm dreading the snowstorm coming in tonight.  But the card's so festive and pretty!  Thanks!
  • Alaska Card from Squeak at The Alaskan Bookie (bottom middle left)
      • My first thought when seeing this card was "Mountains!"  I miss living by mountains.  The city of Anchorage looks so beautiful.  I must visit one day (most likely in the summer when it's warmer).  Thank you Squeak!
  • Snowman Card from Judy from Musings and Ramblings (bottom middle right)
      • Oh my goodness, it's like invasion of the snowmen this year.  That's a lot of snowman cards today.  They must be popular this year.  And pretty.  Thanks Judy!
  • Blue Snowflake Card from A
      • This handmade card is beautiful.  It's got glitter snowflakes!  And the envelope was actually sealed with a wax seal.  I've never gotten mail with a wax seal (it's the little things that make my day).  Beautiful!

From the Library:

For Review:

Death of the Body by Rick Chiantaretto
Growing up in a world of magic only to end up in our world.  How disorienting.  This one sounds like a fun one.  Thanks goes to Rick Chiantaretto.

The Heretic by Joseph Nassise
So this looks like pure urban fantasy without much romance.  It's going to be a little different from the things I normally read.  But I'm still crossing my fingers for a good turnout.  Thanks goes to Joseph Nassise.
