Stacking the Shelves/Sunday Post (12-29-18) - The Christmas Haul


So I'm a little late getting this up but I feel like I'm still stuck on Christmas holiday time.  "Santa" was very good to our family this Christmas and thanks to him, as well as some packages from my furkids, I have some new books to share with you this week.  Here's what I found under the tree.


I'm in love with the concept behind "Grim Lovelies" and hope I fall into the love-it-camp but I've seen mixed reviews so only time will tell.  I own the first "Lore" book and these two are perfect additions to it.


It's always nice to find some Prince beneath the tree and I really need to get busy on "The Passage" if I hope to get it read before the series starts.


I can't wait to read the Menagerie series.  I read the first one years ago and need to reread it but I loved it and have heard only great things about the other two.

My COYER Secret Santa sent me another ebook right before Christmas.  How cute is this one?


And finally I got one review book.  I've read two books by Nick Trout several years back and if you love dogs, I strongly recommend picking up "The Patron Saint of Lost Dogs" and "Dog Gone, Back Soon."  I am thrilled to have a copy of "The Wonder of Lost Causes" for review.


So I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and hope everyone who celebrates has a safe and Happy New Year.

  9. I have the first Lore book, and I'm trying decide when I can read it. πŸ‘✨

    Is the Prince book a Biography? πŸ’œ

    I didn't know there was going to be a show based on The Passage. Good to know. 😊

    Happy New Year. πŸŽ‰

    1. I think the Prince book is a look at how his work was influenced by politics and religion and social consciousness. Yes, the show starts on Fox on the 14th of this month!
