Book Haul #61 - The Birthday Edition!

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!

Welcome to the Birthday edition of Book Haul! As expected no books received but I did get some pretty notebooks for writing and I got money, some of which I splurged on books as it's a special occasion. Here's what I got!


What Makes This Book So Great - Jo Walton

The Twistrose Key - Tone Almhjell

Dead Jealous - Sharon Jones

Scarlet - A C Gaughen

Gameboard of the Gods - Richelle Mead

My Name Is Rapunzel - KC Hilton
For Review

The Last Werewolf - Glen Duncan

Emilie & the Sky World - Martha Wells

The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare - M G Buehrlen

The Book of the Crowman - Joseph D'Lacey

Blades of the Old Empire - Anna Kashina

  11. You got some great books! I hope you can stop by mine.

  12. Happy birthday! My Name is Rapunzel looks amazing! I think book bloggers must have some sort of collective intelligence thing going on because everybody has randomly started featuring Scarlet! Hope you like it :)
