Stacking The Shelves #5

Saturday, May 07, 2016


is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

I haven´t posted in a while about the books I bought or got as reviewer´s copy, but today I want to go back on track with Stacking The Shelves.
The first three I have already read and the reviews to them will come as soon as possible.  The fourth one listed here, Angel of Storms, is the book I am currently reading (at the time where this post was written and published).


My bought books


The Obsession by Nora Roberts
Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father´s crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can´t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes. Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she´s ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up – especially the determined Xander Keaton. Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she´s always secretly craved. But the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she´s learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.




Reviewer´s copy



Windfire by Lynn Raven

“You have the Heart of the Simurgh. Give it to me!”
Jessica DeLaney has not the slightest clue, what this damn good looking stranger with the name Shane Hayden wants from her, when he rumbles into the coffee shop in Las Vegas, where she works as waitress. Soon it begins to dawn on her that behind the amulet, she recently pawned, is a secret. And that she has maybe more links with the mysterious Shane than the missing heirloom.







Angel of Storms (Millenium´s Rule #2) by Trudi Canavan
Tyen is teaching mechanical magic at a school respected throughout the worlds. News arrives that the formidable ruler of all worlds, long believed to be dead, is back and enforcing his old laws – including the one forbidding schools of magic. As teachers and students flee, Tyen is left with no home and no purpose – except the promise he made to Vella, the sorcerer imprisoned in a book. Tyen must decide what he is willing to do to free her. After five years among the tapestry weavers of Schpeta, Rielle´s peaceful new life has been shattered by a local war. As defeat looms, the powerful Angel of Storms appears and invites Rielle to join the artisans of his celestial realm. But what will he require in return for this extraordinary offer?

    1. Thanks, I am happy about it, too. After the domain problem I will take a bit time to breathe and settle before I make the next move and go to WP. Have a great weekend too and lots of fun at the BEA16 :-)
