Stacking the Shelves (24)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's an opportunity for everyone to share the new books that we've acquired.

It's just my small pile this week. So far this year, I've been good about not borrowing too many library books at a time so that I can get through my books at home. In fact, I wouldn't have had any library books this week, but my request for The Iron Knight was ready for pick-up a lot sooner than I'd expected. I also bought Anna and the French Kiss and The Name of the Star, both of which I've read but didn't own, when I spotted them while browsing the bargain books on Amazon.

For Review:

Daughter of the Earth and Sky by Kaitlin Bevis
Thanks to Kaitlin Bevis!


Lee's Books:

Borrowed:

The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

Bought:

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

What did you add to your shelves this week? Please link me up!
