Stacking the Shelves - November 16-23

A weekly meme from Tynga's Reviews

So I don't do these very often. Mostly because I have been trying not to buy a lot of books for myself. But I did just splurge a little bit after a crazy week of work. And I figured, with the holidays coming up and being involved in two different gift exchanges with bloggers I figured I would fess up about the books I got this week. Plus, I got some really exciting books for review that I want to flail about. So here are all the books.


1.) Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen - Add to Goodreads
Austen is sometimes hit and miss for me but I'm really excited to check out her take on Gothic lit
2.) Beauty by Robin McKinley - Add to Goodreads
I've been loving Jessie and Terri's McKinley week so I picked up Beauty when I saw t it for a great price
3.) Maps and Legends by Michael Chabon - Add to Goodreads
Saw this beauty at Half Price Books in pristine condition. I love maps, legends and Chabon.
4.) Cinder by Marissa Meyer - Add to Goodreads
I mean I own a copy of this book but I saw a signed one at Book Outlet so, yeah, now I have that too.
5.) The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkowski - Add to Goodreads
Don't harass me for not having read this book. I bought it so I can read it very soon.
6.) Plus One by Elizabeth Fama - Add to Goodreads
This was not supposed to be for me but now it is. Don't ask questions.
7.) Egg & Spoon by Gregory Maguire - Add to Goodreads
I have a signed ARC of this book but I went to a signing with Maguire where he talked about this book so I had to but a copy.

For Review

1.) The Revelation of Louisa May by Michaela McColl - Add to Goodreads
-You know when you hear about a book and you're like "THAT WAS WRITTEN FOR ME!" and you make Tina Belcher groaning noises cause you want it so bad. This book. 
2.) The World Before Us by Aislinn Hunter- Add to Goodreads
An archivist starts piecing together a mystery that includes a girl who went missing 20 years ago when she was babysitting between an old estate and a Victorian asylum. Creepy? I hope so! 
3.) The Winter Family by Clifford Jackman - Add to Goodreads
Historical Fiction about a group of ruthless outlaws. The synopsis refers to it as "Western noir" so I'm on board.
