Stacking the Shelves *26*

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 week is a veery leetle week for me - especially when you compare it to last week's XD but I'm seriously SO excited about all of these that I wanted to share!  A big (HUGE) thank you to SourceBooks Fire, Random House, Harper Collins UK & Netgalley for the sweetness that is:

& The Bell Between Worlds (Mirror Chronicles #1) by Ian Johnstone.

I was lucky enough to score a coveted copy of Vicious Deep at BEA, so when I got home and saw that the sequel The Savage Blue was available on Netgalley I freaked.  I hit request like a lightning bolt.  I mean, mermaids!!! And those covers are sooooo alluring to me, I just can't even >.< Kenobi, I feel speaks for itself pretty much? I'm a big Star Wars fan and Obi Wan is easily my favorite Jedi so any kind of story focusing on him was impossible to pass up.  The Bell Between Worlds in the first book in The Mirror Chronicles - a story centering on a magical world that exists alongside our own.  According to the blurb it's a 'glorious epic fantasy' along the lines of Narnia & His Dark Materials! Yeah, you know I love my epic fantasies!  The premise sounds pretty cool though and the concept of 'glimmers' is intriguing to say the least.
That's it for me this week dolls!
Don't forget to link me up to your hauls below :)

  2. I'm a huge Star Wars fan, too! When the Phantom Menace movie came out, there was a novel adaptation of the story, and I HAD to have the one with the Obi Wan cover! I hope you enjoy reading all of these, Micheline! :D

    1. It does doesn't it? I was instantly attracted to it that's for sure XD And as for mermaid books, I love mermaids in general but I haven't read any mermaid books yet...so I'll hope for the best I guess but proceed with caution! Thanks for the feedback hun!!
