STACKING THE SHELVES | #58
Time to look at the books I added to my shelves this week with Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews! Not necessarily books I bought - also includes books I borrowed, was given or otherwise ended up with. Weeks I don't buy any books I'll scramble around my shelves and find some I haven't shared in an StS post yet!
Purchased or given in New Orleans:

The Beggar's Garden - Michael ChristieThe First Bad Man - Miranda JulyHot Blooded - Lisa Jackson
This is two weeks in one, including a trip (I always visit a few bookstores when I'm traveling) and some new review copies, so it's a bigger one than usual! There are a few here I've been waiting for (pre-orders) - particularly the newest Veronica Mars. I also picked up Michael Christie's other book, after reading and completely falling in love with If I Fall, If I Die, published last month. Hot Blooded will be my first foray into Lisa Jackson's work, and appealed to me because it's set in New Orleans. My dad bought me an absolutely gorgeous two-book edition of Mark Twain's work following a conversation about the books that led to me admitting I've never read them. And when I got home, One More Thing and A Spool of Blue Thread were waiting patiently for me from Random House.
I'm in the wonderful (if somewhat daunting) position now of having more books I'm excited to dive into than time to do so!
What about you guys? Have you read any of these? Any favourites? Did you pick up any great books in the last week? Share in the comments!
