stacking the shelves

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews
The object of this meme is to share the books you’ve borrowed or bought throughout the week.

I went to C2E2 last weekend, so ended-up splurging a bit on books this week.

    • Thanks! I’m planning to do a re-read of the series. I binge read most of it back in high school, but never finished all the books. I’m going to try reading the entire series this time. 😀


    • Thanks, Grace! Yeah, the Phillipa Ballentine book sounded really interesting. Apparently the heroine is married, which seems rare to find the genre.
