Hey guys! I didn't do a StS last week, so this week there are a couple more books than usual :) I hope everyone had a great Christmas/solstice/whatever other holiday you celebrate and that you could spend some quality time with your family and relax! I got some cool stuff myself - my sister gave me this awesome cup,
But here's to the books:
Won / Gifted
Reckless, by Cornelia Funke
Immenblatt und erster Schnee, poems by Georg Gisi & illustrated by Marthe Keller-Kiefer, 1955
Thanks so much to Caro from The Book Rogue for the copy of Reckless! It was an awesome Christmas surprise :) The book of poems I got from my uncle, who also gave me two other books, one from 1843 and the other from 1873. I'll show you those another time.
Bought in print
Shadowfever, by Karen Marie Moning
The Fiery Heart, by Richelle Mead
Under the Never Sky, by Veronica Rossi
I've already read Shadowfever (borrowed from a friend) but now the right edition was on sale so I had to complete my collection. I can't wait to read The Fiery Heart and finally give Under the Never Sky a try!
Poison Princess, by Kresley Cole
A Song For Julia, by Charles Sheehan-Miles
Bitter Sweet Love, by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pentimento, by Cameron Jace
Fracture Me, by Tahereh Mafi
Poison Princess almost didn't happen for me. I wasn't impressed by the kindle excerpt, but I gave the 17 chapter preview a try and ended up falling for the story! It was definitely worth it in the end. A Song For Julia was free, and I've wanted it ever since reading an excerpt a long time ago. JLA + gargoyles was a no-brainer, Fracture Me I would've gotten sooner or later anyway, and Pentimento was free, too.
So yeah. I've got a lot of great reading ahead ;) What do you think of my haul? And what did you get for Christmas and for your shelves?
