June 2017 Books Bought

Since starting my blog back in August of 2008 I always try to share what books I get with you so that you can see what I will be reading and I am always looking for a place to link them so that others can see them so from now on I will be sharing my links on Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. As Marlene has offered to co-host Stacking The Shelves with Tynga’s Reviews. Marlene is a new to be blogger and I look forward to checking out her blog.

As you can see I switched this up and will be posting monthly because  I have to say since doing this instead of posting the books in my weekly haul I am much more aware of the books that I am buying. This year I am making it my top priority to read the ones I am buying before buying new ones. I know its easier said then done but that is my goal.

I am trying to get better with my book buying and trying to stick to sales, bargain books or reward plum bonus point events. As a book lover its hard not to buy books.

As you can see this month is a little calmer and thats a good thing. Here is what I bought this month:

  1. Follow Me Back by A.V Geiger
  2. Love Lies beneath by Ellen Hopkins
  3. A Travel Guide Novel Destinations by Shannon McKenna Schmidt & Joni Rendon
  4. Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica
  5. Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders
  6. By Her Touch by Adriana Anders

The Mailbox Post February 6th to 11th

Its hard to believe its that time of the week for another mailbox post.

Good morning everyone. I hope you are all having a good week. I just quickly wanted to share a book I got in the mail from Quirk books this past week:

Book Geekerella: A Fangirl Fairy Tale by Ashley Poston

Its Geekerella: A Fangirl Fairy Tale by Ashley Poston. Its schedule to be released April 4th 2017.

Cinderella goes to the con in this fandom-fueled twist on the classic fairy tale.
 
Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom. Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.

Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.

This sounds like it will be a really good read. Thanks once again Quirk for sending me this to review.
