Stacking The Shelves: August 19, 2017 [Vacation Book Haul)

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly bookish meme hosted @ Tynga's Reviews & Reading Reality.



Hi everyone! I just got back from my vacation yesterday so this STS post will be about the books I've bought in the last three weeks. :D ♥

Five of the books below (The Tower and the Emerald, Masterpieces of the Egyptian Museum of Cairo, Wondrous Realms of the Aegan and The Holy Land) I bought for 2€ each. And The Wright Brothers biography for 50 cents so not too bad, right? I'm so happy with all of them. I already read The Tower and the Emerald, which I was really surprised about that I liked so much and right now I'm reading Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. 




Bought:
The Tower and the Emerald by Moyra Caldecott
The Wright Brothers: First in Flight by Tara Dixon-Engel & Mike Jackson
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
Masterpieces of the Egyptian Museum (No link sorry)
Wondrous Realms of the Aegan by Time-Life Books
The Holy Land by Time-Life Books
Mexican Art by Paul Hamlyn (No link sorry)


And of course I couldn't resist buying some ebooks in the meantime too. Buying Thousands was a no brainer. My favorite dark romance author and one of my favorite series of hers. Pim and Elder make my heart ache, though. Wish You Were here was unexpectedly on sale so of course had to buy that one. And last but not least... finally got around to buying Mistress of Rome. It's been long overdue since I already read book #2 and #3 (luckily they can be read as standalones) but now I finally have it. I can't wait to read it!



Bought:
Thousands by Pepper Winters
Wish You Were Here by Reneé Carlino
Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn




Have a great weekend, everyone! ♥

  1. Glad to know you're back! I hope you enjoyed your holiday, I can see you certainly enjoyed some bookish shopping... :P

    I've heard a lot about Pepper Winters, but haven't read any of her works. Perhaps I should change that, huh?

    1. Definitely! You should start with Tears of Tess. It's the first book by Pepper Winters that I've read and it's still my favorite. ♥

  6. Mistress of Rome is on my to-read list -- historical fiction is a weakness of mine. I hope you enjoy all your books and have a wonderful week.
