This week's haul!! 

Books Purchased

I've recently finished reading Hellsbane,
the first book in this series, which
I absolutely loved!
My review is coming soon!
Now I can't wait to read this one,
which was recently delivered
by Amazon!!

I've seen this book on several blogs,
and it looks very interesting!
Since I'm a die-hard fantasy fan,
I knew it was just a matter of
time until I made it mine!

This is another book I've heard
a lot about recently.
It's another retelling of the
"Beauty and the Beast" fairytale,
which I think we females
never get tired of, to judge by
its endless popularity!

This novel caught my eye because of the
beautiful dress on the cover,
which I'd love to be able to wear!
It's a great story about a journalist and an editor
on opposite sides of the fence,
who end up falling in love.
Of course I had to get this one!

Of course, this stunning cover immediately
grabbed my attention!
However, the fact that this anthology
was compiled and edited
by the world-renowned Donald A. Wollheim
made me very eager to get it!

Here's another spiritual book by Sanaya Roman
that I know will be very profound,
dealing as it does with the soul's qualities
of light, love, and peace.
I'm looking forward to reading it,
as well as meditating on it!

The following book deals with a topic that I've
been struggling with for a long time,
and that is the issue of
whether or not human beings
really do have free will.
The author approaches this thorny subject
from a combination of philosophical
and scientific viewpoints.
It should prove to be fascinating!

What do you think of my haul?
What fascinating books
did you stack on 
your shelves this week?

    1. Hi, Michelle!

      Yeah, I'm VERY eclectic! I love to read fiction and nonfiction, although I haven't been featuring much nonfiction on this blog, because I figured people wouldn't be very interested in it. But heck, I want to feature the books I enjoy reading, or would like to read. So, I'll be doing more nonfiction for sure!

      I'll go check out your haul! : )

  4. Great haul of books. I have been meaning to read Searle Lately I have been so very interested in consciousness and the brain and have heard that his books are must reads.

    1. Hey, Brian!

      Glad you like my haul! Yeah, I want to get into the whole consciousness thing, too. It's a very important issue. So I hope to be picking up more books dealing with this topic. I'll also check out more Searle books, since you're recommending them! : )
