Book Haul #38

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews and Letterbox Love is a UK edition hosted by Narratively Speaking. Here we can share what new books we've picked up this past week. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

Operation TBR is going fairly well, the not buying bit anyway - I still don't seem to be reading anything I own! This week's haul is big because it's library week and my beloved sister took pity on me and bought books... She's such an enabler! Anyway, she bought me five of Kim Harrison's Hollows books which I used to own but unfortunately they were in the one box that got lost in transit the last time I moved, along with a book that I've heard quite a bit about.
