Stacking The Shelves #19: Family Magic, Blood Purple, Irish Folk & Fairy Tale Omnibus, and THREE Highland Guard Romances!!

This is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer, Lili,
Stephanie, Helen, and Tynga @ Tynga's Reviews!
(I have decided to start participating
every other week, though, because of
time constraints.)

As the title implies, this is all about
sharing the books you're adding
to your shelves, be they physical or virtual.
For the complete rules, and to sign up,
just click on the link above.

This week's haul!! 

Books Purchased

I have recently interviewed the author of
this very exciting YA paranormal novel,
and greatly enjoyed her answers.
The book itself promises to be
a great read!  That's why I could hardly wait
to get it from Amazon!
You can read the interview HERE.

Hardcover, 405 pages

I first saw this book on
the author's blog, and immediately
fell in love with the cover!
This novel presents a kingdom of vampires
originating in the Middle East,
with a fighting princess included!
Most of the reviews were positive,
so I ordered it right away!!

Trade Paperback, 159 pages

This one showed up on my radar
when I was preparing a
St. Patrick's Day post last year.
I have always been fascinated by fairy tales, and,
since I wasn't too familiar with Irish ones,
decided to purchase a book about them. 

Trade paperback, 656 pages
