Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday (11)

Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday make a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

 I received some absolutely GORGEOUS looking ARC and review copies this week, just look at how beautiful they all are! I received Dark Eyes, Debutantes  and The Dark Glamour - seriously, how nice are those covers?! I also received the interesting sounding Ocean of Secrets, Witch Crag and an adult fiction book, Sworn Secret.

Only one swap this week, but it was a really good one in my opinion! I'm a huge fan of LGBT themes books, so I have had this on my wish list for a while!

 Two very different purchased books this week - I finally gave into buying a copy of The Little Prince which I really want to re-read. I also hit lucky finding a second hand copy of Romanitas to satisfy my new found love for Rome!

 All in all, a very good week! What books did you get?


  1. Ocean of Secrets looks sooo good! The Dark Glamour looks really good too! Hope you enjoy all you got :)

    Here's My STS!

  2. Ooh nice! Those are all new to me but I hope you enjoy them!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  3. Great haul! I completely agree, The Debutantes, Dark Eyes, and The Dark Glamour all have lovely covers. :) I look forward to seeing what you think of them.

    I remember reading A Little Prince along time ago... *wistful sigh* I hope you enjoy your re-read, Stephanie. :) It was quite a book...

    Thank you very sharing and happy reading! :D

  4. nice haul :) I love books that have really beautiful colors. lately I'm seeing a lot of darkness in covers. eek.


  5. Ohhh, The Little Prince! I love that story, the only book I ever read in French that wasn't required reading from school ;).

    I have to admit I actually have never heard of any of the other books you got, lol - but they are very pretty.

  12. I've seen Ocean of Secrets as Sea Change before. LOL. I think it was the US version. Very nice haul. :)

  13. Wow! They are some fantastic ARCs you've got this week and they look soooooo pretty. My favourite one from looks has to be The Dark Glamour. I'll be looking out for your thoughts on these babies soon!

  28. ::sighs dreamily:: Isn't that cover for Debutantes just GORGEOUS?! I hope you love it :-) Until today, The Dark Glamour and Ocean of Secrets were not on my bookish radar, but I am totally adding them to my Wish List now. Thanks for the heads-up!
