Stacking The Shelves #21 - Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #5

Saturday, September 10, 2016

Stacking The Shelves 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 am also connecting with Bought Borrowed & Bagged in homage of Barron´s Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning´s smash hit series, Fever, hosted by Braine at Talk Supe.

Since weeks I am sneaking around Illusions of Fate. Don´t know why that is. Maybe because I like the cover very much but heard and read a lot of mixed things about it. Some like it, others don´t. Seems to polarize the readers … Well, guess I am about to find out *lol*

Bought books

Again The Magic by Lisa Kleypas
She gave him her innocence … Lady Aline Marsden was brought up to marry a man of her own class, but from the moment she meets John McKenna, she risks everything to be with him.
He gave her his heart … Although their love is forbidden, McKenna´s passion for the beautiful Aline is too compelling to deny. When their secret is discovered, their world is shattered. McKenna is forced to leave forever, unaware that the only reason Aline has given him up is to save him. Now McKenna has returned, a powerful man determined to take revenge against the woman who broke his heart. But the magic between them burns as fiercely as ever … and as McKenna uncovers Aline´s deepest secret, together they discover a love that will defy Fate itself. 

Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White
Jessamin has been an outcast since she moved from her island home of Melei to the dreary country of Albion. Everything changes when she meets the gorgeous, enigmatic Finn, who introduces her to the secret world of Albion´s nobility. It´s a world that has everything Jessamin doesn´t – power, money, status … and magic. But Finn has secrets of his own, and the vicious Lord Downpike will do anything to possess them. Unless Jessamin, armed only with her wits, can stop him.

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.
