Stacking The Shelves #8 / In My Mailbox #18

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren.  Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews.  Here we can share what new books we've picked up this past week!

I was trying so hard to be good this week, all I was expecting were some pre-orders but I am an idiot for shiny new covers even if I own the book and so any & all resolve flew out of the window when I discovered the beautiful new clothbound books from Voyager Classics! As if that wasn't bad enough I discovered that there was a Kindle sale for Easter... And I made the mistake of looking! I was very restrained here but the sale's not over yet!

  4. I read Clockwork Princess, and it was such an amazing ending to a series I have loved. I don't know if you've read it yet, but if you haven't, I recommend tissues while reading it. The epilogue made me cry.

  11. Scent of Magic started out slow in my opinion but I found myself enjoying it as soon as it picked up. Snyder is one of my favorite authors, enjoy!

  12. I just finished The Name of the Star last week and really really liked it. I definitely want to read the second one. AND CLOCKWORK PRINCESS. Oh my gosh I am so nervous to read that one - I just know I'll be crying a lot. But I gotta read it!!!!
