Stacking the Shelves
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews showcasing new books we've gotten a hold of (bought/given/gifted/trade/for review).
This was a pretty awesome week for me if I do say so myself; I bought 2 books I`ve been pretty much climbing the walls to get my hands on :D I also managed to get my first 2 Netgalley book approvals - yay! -so you could definitely say I'm pretty excited all around!
First, I`ll start with my two purshases:
I've been wanting to read Grave Mercy since I first heard about it. I haven't read any historical fiction in a little bit, but come on: assassin nuns! Assassin nuns trained by Death himself! Yeah. How could this not be compelling? I also think the cover is beyond spectacular, it looks pretty and lethal at the same time.
Masque of the Red Death has been on my reading list for awhile but it was after I started blogging and reading other bloggers reviews that it moved WAY up my 'to-buy next' list. I've heard the author mixes steampunk & dystopian elements (both of which I'm a fan of) But wait, it gets better: it's a retelling of the classic Edgar Allen Poe (♥!) story of the same name. Oh I am so in. I hope I can start it before or on Halloween!
Ever since I first set eyes on Seraphina I've wanted to get my greedy little hands on it. It has dragons & I adore dragons (I even have a dragon tattoo)! But it's not just that, Seraphina is a ya fantasy that's been getting great reviews & the premise is full of potential to me. I also simply adore the cover, it has a Gothic, classic feel.
Devil's Bargain is another book I discovered through fellow book-bloggers. It's an adult urban fantasy featuring mystery, a secret society, magic & psychic powers. Definitely something I'd be into! I also really like the main protagonist's name: Jazz, I have a gorgeous tabby cat named Jazz :) The cover on this one is also really pretty I think.
That's my haul this week guys! What goodies did YOU manage to get? Link me up bellow & don't forget to let me know if you're a new Lunar Rainbows follower so I can return the favor.
