Book Haul #32

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga’s Reviews.  The Sunday Post is a weekly event hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  Here we can share what new books we’ve picked up this past week as well as other interesting book news.

I actually didn’t buy or borrow any books this week, which is really a good thing.  I already have a ZILLION books around the house.  So I thought I would share some of the e-galleys I’ve been approved for over the last month or so.

From Netgalley:

going rogue

Going Rogue by Robin Benway
I read this one last week, and it was totally adorable.  My review will be up soon.

From Edelweiss:


Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare
I’ve heard great things about Tessa Dare, and this book looks super cute.  I can’t wait to give it a try.


The Sound by Sarah Alderson

That’s it.  I’m really trying to NOT request too many books.  It’s so easy, sometimes, though.  🙂

Life Tidbits

  • So, for those that celebrate Christmas, are you ready?  Do you have all your shopping and wrapping done?  I’m pretty good in the shopping area, and I’ve done some wrapping, but I need to do more.
  • I’m still hunting for a new TV show to watch, now that I finished Doctor Who (I’m totally going through Doctor withdrawal!).  I’m trying out Torchwood and The X-Files.  I’m liking both, but not in the same way that I love Doctor Who.
  • I try not to get grumpy that I don’t get any time off around Christmas, but I always end up resenting everyone else at the library that takes time.  Since I’m the newest librarian (although I’ve been there for nearly 6 years) I have no seniority.  But what annoys me, is that when I finally get seniority I won’t hog it like they do at my library. Yeah, obviously I’m not succeeding in the no grumpiness area.  🙂
  • I received the sweetest Christmas gift from Alisa in the mail this week!  It was a SIGNED copy of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and a Pride & Prejudice ornament.  I love them.  Alisa is the best!

About Quinn

I'm a twenty-something children's librarian at a public library in Central New York. I've long left my teen years behind me, but I love to read YA and children's books. I have two adorable dogs. Ginger is a mix between a poodle and havanese, and Daphne is Bichon Frise. Other things I love: Favorite Movie: Singing in the Rain Favorite Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen Favorite TV Show: Monk

    You work at the library with no time off for Christmas?! Wow. My local library is shut until the 2nd of January! (I borrowed out big so I wouldn’t, you know, die while I’m waiting for new books.) That’s pretty exciting about the signed copy of Fangirl! woot! My StS!

  6. Never heard about any of these books, Quinn. Romancing the Duke has gorgeous cover though.

    Happy reading and merry Christmas!

    I’m glad you liked Going Rogue! Was it as good as the first? I’m planning on reading it soon, but need to finish some library books first.

    And I am nowhere NEAR ready for Christmas! It’s a good thing I still have a couple more days!
