Letterbox Love/Stacking the Shelves





Letterbox Love & Stacking the Shelves are weekly memes to share the books you've received this week. 


Hello! I've just in the last hour got back from a week of family holiday on the lovely island of Tiree, off the west coast of Scotland. It was great, so good to be back there, and for a lot of the time we had great weather, too! So now, time to get caught up on the books I've got in the past two weeks.

Since my last post, I've only had ebooks, but there were some good ones!


Lover At Last, by J. R. Ward #11 in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. (Goodreads description here.) I really like this series, and in this book we finally see Blay & Qhuinn get their happily-ever-after. I've been looking forward to their story for a long time, but just couldn't justify buying another fat hardcover when it came out while I was in America. Now I'm home, I noticed it was about the price of a normal paperback if you got the ebook version, so this was my treat for myself on holiday, and true to form, I loved it. I'll do a 'Thoughts On Books' post about this one soon.





The Governess Affair, by Courtney Milan. (Goodreads description here.) I don't really know much about this one, but it's the first/prequel to one of Courtney Milan's historical romance series', and I've heard many reccomendations for her books, so I thought I would give it a try.


Elite, by Rachel Van Dyken (Description)  I saw this on Netgalley, and thought it sounded interesting summer reading. Hopefully getting to it later this week, and I'll review soon. Thanks, Grand Central Publishing!









The Woken Gods, by Gwenda Bond (Description) As an ancient history student, I'm always interested in books that involve the ancient myths, so I'm looking forward to reading this one. As it doesn't come out until September, I think I'm going to get through some of the others I need to review first, but I'm hoping to get to it soon. Thank you Strange Chemistry/
Angry Robot!








So what books did you get this week?

I got Elite the week before, but a couple of my friends have read it and they didn't like it at all, so I'll probably put off reading it for some time. I love the cover of The Woken Gods and it actually sounds like an interesting read! I'll check it out when it comes out!
Enjoy your books! :)
