Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted by Tynga's Reviews featuring our book haul for the week; either new books we've received or bought.
What goodies did I get this week?
Wow, the past week has been absolutely crazy for me what with the official launch of my new book blog Lunar Rainbows and the worldwide issue with domain switching over on google and blogger...*whew* I've hardly had time to even read; but I'm never too busy to go out and get some new ones ;-)
This week I got my first 'official' arc since I launched my blog, and I'm pretty excited about it:
Baptism of Fire
Author: Stephanie Constante
Being the daughter of a dragon slayer was never easy, especially when Leito discovers a dragon child injured in her father’s fields. Knowing the fate that will befall him, she helps the boy to escape before the hunt is upon him.
Leito realizes years later that no good deed goes unpunished and after the village offers her up as a sacrifice for her father’s actions against dragons, Leito must utilize all her knowledge and strength to outwit the dragon that aims to kill her.
Dragons? I absolutely love dragons, I mean I have a dragon tattoo on my foot! And I'm really curious about the whole 'dragon boy' bit. The synopsis has me dying to know how Leito's confrontation with the dragon will go. I also happen to think the cover is super pretty ♥
And...here's what I bought this week:
The Well of Ascension (Mistborn 2) by Brandon Sanderson & Half Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Mistborn and I absolutely LOVED it; 5-stars & an instant favorite! Classic High Fantasy feel with a female heroine and a VERY unique, elaborate & just plain awesome magical system.
And I've heard nothing but good things about Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux series (which I haven't read yet *gasp*), but I was instantly attracted to the cover of this one...and it's uber-intriguing premise.
