Book Haul #98 - The Library/Birthday Edition

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews where we can share what new books we've picked up this past week be they bought, borrowed or downloaded. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

It's my birthday! And I've received no books :( I've not bought any books either so... Thankfully it was library day this week so I have a nice shiny stack of library books and a couple of review titles I've been wanting to read :) I got quite a bit of birthday money but instead of splurging I'm using some to renew my passport, can't believe how expensive it is! Off out for lunch later, and a special birthday dinner tonight - one where I don't have to clean up afterwards!

  4. Circus of the Unseen is new to me but I'll have to check it out. Enjoy it :) My STS

  5. Oh wow...lots of good books! I've enjoyed the Mara Dyer series, but I've been putting off the last book because I'm scared of how it's going to end. :( Deep Blue has such a pretty cover, but I've yet to find a mermaid book that was a win for me. Hope you have a great week!
