manda-rae's Haul

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

Saturday is finally here.  Although I spent the whole week waiting for Friday.  It was my five-year anniversary with my husband.  And we went to a nice fancy restaurant and a bar afterwards (can you tell I don't get out much).  It was a lot of fun, and I'm happy to say I'm still just as much in love with my husband as I was back then (although I've learned love can take on many forms including the nit-picking, nagging ugly kind every once in a while).  I've been really slow at reading this week, but I hope I pick it up again soon.

For Review from Around the World ARC Tours:

  • Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L Armentrout
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I'm willing to bet I will have this one done before the weekend is over.  I adored the first book in the series.  And it's gargoyles!!!
  • A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • A world involving physics and multiverses.  While physics is my least favorite science, I'm still looking forward to this one.

From the Library:

  • Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • It looks so dark in the picture.  I hope that's a foreshadow as to how the books go.  I've kind of struck out on third books lately, so it better rock my socks off.
  • Complicit by Stephanie Kuehn
  • The Girl with the Windup Heart by Kady Cross
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • This is a series that has grown on me.  I'm not absolutely in love with the writing and stories, but the characters have certainly grown on me.  Hence, a faithful reader I've become with this series.
