I received this review copy from the author,
Cassandra Lawson!!
She signed it and wrote a great message, 
too, which was so sweet of her!
I know this is going to be a great
vampire romance!!
I recently interviewed her for this blog.




Purchased

My husband bought me this one!!
He knew I wanted it, and
surprised me with it this week!!!
Of course, he got a lot of hugs & kisses!!!

This one caught my eye when I was 
shopping at Marshall's one day.
(This is a store in Miami, Florida, USA.)
The price was right, so I snapped it up!!



https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/44170.The_Looking_Glass_Wars?ac=1

Glass, by Lewis Carroll.  Since I love
fairy tale retellings, this was a must-have!!



https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/289695.Seeing_Redd


This is the sequel to the book above.
There's another book after this one, as 
well as several more on the 
theme of Wonderland.

I found this one while browsing on
Amazon, and just had to get it!!
I love the cover!  The guy is holding
her so very tenderly.......

I saw this one in the bargain section
at my favorite B&N store and
couldn't resist buying it!
(Of course, now I have to get the 
very first book in this series.....)



https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6948292-the-white-queen

This was another bargain find at
B&N.  I want to start reading
more historical fiction, and Gregory
is one of the very best!!

stacked on your shelves?

  1. I've had Through a Looking Glass for a few years now on my shelf yet I haven't read it. I keep telling myself that I have to read Alice in Wonderland first before this one. I really need to get a move on it.

    By the way, that's an awesome personalization from the author. I love how she wrote "twisted imagination." That alone makes me want to read the book. I'm adding it to my list :)

    2. Hey, Vonnie!

      I've heard great things about this trilogy, so, when I saw both of these books together for sale, I snapped them up!

      I read "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" when I was a kid, and need to revisit it. I read it in Spanish, by the way, so now I want to re-read it in the original language. Then I want to go on to "Through the Looking Glass".

      As for "Raven's Blood", I'm so excited about reading it! I think the idea of pairing a vampire with a wood nymph is very original indeed! I'm so glad you're interested in this novel, too!

      The note Cassandra wrote in the book is definitely very sweet, and I, too, like the part about "my twisted imagination"! Lol.

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving such a great comment!! : )

    1. Hi, Grace!

      Yeah, I'm very interested in "The Looking Glass Wars", as well as the sequel. I also want to get the third book, which is titled "ArchEnemy"!

      As for "These Broken Stars", I've heard it's AWESOME, so I'm really stoked about reading it!

      I know I'll enjoy everything I got this week! And I'll be sure to pop over to your blog and see what you got!

      Thanks for dropping by and commenting!! : )

  3. I LOVED These Broken Stars, though it's kind of more of a survival story than a sci-fi one, but so. good. And such a gorgeous cover. I so need to pick up a copy of The Bone Season soon, since everyone keeps talking about it, haha. Happy reading! :)

    Here's mine

  4. Nice haul! The Bones Season and These Broken Stars are on my TBR. Looking Glass Wars series is pretty good. Starts off really good but by the third book it does start to lose its luster in my opinion. Hope you like them! Happy Reading!
    Here are my newest additions.
