Stacking The Shelves #15


Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews and is a post for bloggers to share what books they've received to review, bought, won, borrowed or were gifted.


My Husband Got Me


Snow White

"Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who's the fairest one of all?"

Originating in seventeenth-century French folklore, the story of Snow White has long been one of the world's most memorable childhood tales.

It is the story of an evil queen determined to do away with a girl--with skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony--who threatens the queen's quest to remain the most beautiful in her kingdom. This new gift edition presents the unabridged version of the Grimms' tale, with an original interpretation by renowned artist Camille Rose Garcia that artfully combines wit and dark romance.


I can not get over how much I love the illustrations of this Snow White. So gorgeous!!! I hope to have a review up soon. Most likely via vlog so that I can show you the pictures.


For Review


The Taker

True love can last an eternity . . . but immortality comes at a price. On the midnight shift at a hospital in rural St. Andrew, Maine, Dr. Luke Findley is expecting a quiet evening. Until a mysterious woman arrives in his ER, escorted by police—Lanore McIlvrae is a murder suspect—and Luke is inexplicably drawn to her. As Lanny tells him her story, an impassioned account of love and betrayal that transcends time and mortality, she changes his life forever. . . . At the turn of the nineteenth century, when St. Andrew was a Puritan settlement, Lanny was consumed as a child by her love for the son of the town’s founder, and she will do anything to be with him forever. But the price she pays is steep—an immortal bond that chains her to a terrible fate for eternity.
