Stacking the Shelves (#13)


It's Saturday and so it's time for Stacking the Shelves!
Here is my haul from this week:

❄ Paperbacks 



The Princess Bride by William Goldman
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood


❄ NetGalley 



Hexed (Hexed, #1) by Michelle Krys
The Deeper We Fall (Fall and Rise, #1) by Chelsea M. Cameron



I love The Handmaid's Tale so much, so you can imagine how happy I was when I found a brand new and inexpensive copy of it this week! I'm also really excited about Hexed. Witches aren't my no. 1 favourite supernatural beings, but recently I have started to like them better and better. Maybe I can finally get out of the reading-about-witch slump Harry Potter series have driven me into?

  1. The cover for Hexed looks interesting...might need to check Goodreads to read a bit more about it. Not that I need MORE on my wishlist! *grins* Enjoy your books!

  4. Great haul, Handmaid's Tale and Princess Bride equal two of my favorite books - I have the same copy of Princess Bride, isn't it gorgeous? Oooh, I didn't know Hexed was on Netgalley! I might have to go and have a look!

    Happy reading! Here's my Haul!

  5. The Handmaid's Tale cover is very cool. I didn't like the book though. Hexed looks good so I might check that one out. Witches aren't really my thing either despite loving HP :)

  6. The handmaid's tale covers very different than the one I have seen in the past. Hexed sounds very good. Enjoy your new goodies.

  10. Deeper We Fall was pretty good. I liked the plot, but wasn't completely crazy about the love interest. Great haul!

    1. It seems pretty interesting book, but too bad if the love interest wasn't to your liking. :( Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Ahhh, so jealous of Hexed! Seriously can't wait to read it. Witches and magic isn't exactly my favourite either (depending on if it's old school or not) and I've been disappointed wit a lot of them last year, but hoping this ones good! :) Happy reading!

    1. Like I already mention, I think at least for me HP has raised the bar of witches too high for me. I really enjoyed Half Bad which was about witches but even that one the witch theme wasn't really a major part of the novel. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  12. I remember "The Princess Bride". I preferred the movie but the book had its moments. Happy reading!
