**"Stacking the Shelves" is run by Tynga @ Tynga's Book Reviews and I'm linking up with some of the great books I found this week.**
Hello my Loves!!
It has been a WHILE, and I have missed you all :D I come with good news. I am a free woman, exams finished yesterday, and I am so excited to be done second year! Thank-you for bearing with me, I know it was inconvenient, the many hiatuses, but things should be relatively easier as the more stressful courses are out of the way. As promised, this post is also a massive haul of all my bookish expenditures over the last month. I ended up getting a lot, mainly because Amazon had such great deals on kindle books and I couldn't resist stocking Tookie up. Also, I stress shop. *hangs head in shame* What do you think of the splurge?
(Notice how Dante insists on being first up? That boy just has to always be the centre of attention!)
I got this mid-April, so yes, Dante Walker now resides on my shelf!
He makes it look so good. Seriously though, I think the boy is getting to me.
How lovely are these novels, I can hardly wait to read them! I'm excited to be getting back into Christian Historical fiction - one of my all time favourite genres - and these titles look oh so promising.
You know when you have the urge to buy a book, that little crave that just won't quit? That is exactly how I felt about Article 5! I lusted after it for MONTHS until I just couldn't take it anymore. I went ahead and just bought the book. Honestly I'm happy I did, I can't wait to read it, and it looks so fabulous among the other books in my cages :) Also, Pivot Point promises to be a great read, I'm loving the positive vibe I'm getting from other readers!
Did I mention just how GORGEOUS the historical Christian fiction covers are?? Seriously, I think the publishers have appropriately stepped up their game. The books are stunning and lovely, I can hardly wait to read them! Especially these two, I'm a Gist fan for life, and Mitchell has me really enthralled with her newest release.
So confession time: I caved. I couldn't help myself! I finally got myself a copy of If I Stay. This book is like the golden grail of Contemporary YA fiction and I felt a bit like I was missing out by not reading it, an issue I will endeavour to remedy ASAP. Like Anna and the French Kiss, it was a great deal. In fact, all three books are in fabulous condition, and I got them second-hand! They made me really pleased.
More Christian fiction, I told you I was getting back into it! The newest one by Tyndall looks promising, this author is so great at writing pirate/nautical-type fiction with just the right amount of romance. All I could think when I saw this was GIVE. ME. Lol, I also got me some Lori Wick, because the woman - although responsible for breaking my heart by not writing more - has a history of penning such resonating and powerful fiction. I've read Sean Donovan before, but I needed a copy on my shelf.
Gorgeous books, I want to read The Fairest Beauty because of its fairy-tale factor. Snow White is far from being my favourite Disney Princess, but the story is prime for retellings and such. I've never seen it done Christian-style, but this looks good! Also, Colleen Coble: I see your gorgeous book cover AND premise, hoping it doesn't disappoint!
I start reading this book in a few days!! Because the first book was as good as it was, I want to see what happens in this sequel :) If you haven't entered already, be sure to drop by my Giveaway for both books in the series. Don't forget to enter!!
Right. So that is the haul! I think I might have stress-shopped a bit, but having the books helped me get through the exams quicker. I kept imagining reading them as soon as the papers were done :P Now I can't wait to start! I love all my books and adore my subscribers as well. What did you guys think of the books purchased this month? Have you read any of the books listed? I'd love to hear your opinions on them!
I'm looking to post a few more round-ups if possible, mostly of cover reveals and April new releases. I'll keep you posted!
Until then, you know I love you lots, take care!
