This week's haul!!




Since my tastes are very eclectic,
so are my book acquisitions!
This week, I have a combination of
young adult and adult novels,
as well as a fascinating nonfiction book!



Giveaway Prize

Thanks to Kara @ Nocturnal Book Reviews

this book about
powerful women of the Renaissance!
I can't wait to read it!!

I saw both of these at a bookstore
near my day job, and
snatched them up before anyone else
could get their hands on them!
Now I need to get the first book in
this series, which I have long
wanted to read!

When I first saw this book,
while browsing on Amazon one day, I was immediately captivated by the cover,
which I featured in
my "Shelf Candy Saturday #64" post.
This is a vampire romance novel.
I just can't get enough of those!




Falling from Eternity

This book has been
an international bestseller for years,
and I've had it on my TBR list
for quite a while.
It's garnered several literary awards,
which you will see mentioned on the GR page.
I featured the paperback cover,
which is very similar to this one,
in my "Shelf Candy Saturday #66" post.
I'm hoping to get to this novel
sometime this year....

our world....

  2. Looks to be a bunch of great books. The Deadly Sisterhood in Particular looks to be intriguing. Such an interesting time and people. Sophie's World also looks so very offbeat and interesting. I am putting both on my TBR. I am really curious to read your thoughts on them when you have read them.

  4. Very nice selection of books here. I see that you and me have some things in common. I'm pretty sure that the Megan Duncan was on sale in the Kindle Store a few weeks ago. I like Vampire novels.
