New on the Shelves, Vol. 3

Thursday, March 26, 2015

After getting a 20% off coupon from Barnes & Noble in the mail two weeks ago, I had to use it on The Hogwarts Library (Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them, The Tales of Beedle the Bard) by J.K. Rowling. I love how all the covers match and since I haven't read these yet, I figure it'll be motivation to finish my Harry Potter series re-read.

February was a big month for new releases!

Like I mentioned in last week's Top Ten Tuesday, I sent a library request for Girl Before a Mirror by Liza Palmer after Hannah so highly recommended it in her lovely review. I'm craving some women's fiction after reading The Life Intended by Kristin Harmel (I wrote a mini review in last week's Forget Me Not!)

I haven't read anything by V.E./Victoria Schwab yet but A Darker Shade of Magic seems like a great place to start. Parallel universes, magic and London? COUNT ME IN.

I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios would have escaped my "to read" list, but EVERYONE has been so vocal about how great it is and I just had to see for myself. I'll be picking this up after my current read (Paper Towns by John Green) so you'll be hearing about my feels soon enough :p

I've been quite excited for A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas so of course I read it as soon as I got home. It's a reimagining of Sleeping Beauty after she wakes up from true love's kiss, and y'all know how I feel about twists on fairytales ... (I love 'em!)

What was the last book you purchased for yourself? Which book do you think I should read after I finish I'll Meet You There? (I'm 95% sure it'll be A Darker Shade of Magic!)


  1. I love The Hogwarts Library! I haven't yet read them either, but they're so dang pretty on my shelf. And I definitely hope you love I'll Meet You There. It's a phenomenal read! :)

  2. Your blog is so cute!

    I hope you LOVE I'll Meet You There.. it quickly became one of my all time favorites. I've had my eye on Girl Before a Mirror - hope you enjoy!

  3. That is a lovely set! I only have the Beedle the Bard book - I need to get the others! And I would go with reading A Darker Shade of Magic next too - I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but everything about it sounds amazing! :)
