Stacking The Shelves: July 2017

Welcome back my loves,

We are sharing all the goodies that I got at the 57th Annual Library Book Sale in Southport CT.  I work just around the street from this library and I've been hyping this library book sale to everyone I know.  I love the sale and I know it benefits so many so I try to do my part.

Here are the goodies I hauled today, my plan was simple I went in with a general list of authors I wanted to grab if I saw their work and I knew which of their books I was missing because of my book list of all the backlog catalogs I want.

From the Erotica Section:
  • Be With Me by Maya Banks
  • All Through The Night An Anthology
  • Coming Undone by Lauren Dane
  • Turn Up the Heat edited by Opal Carew
Classics:
  • The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
Romance:

  • Wed locked by Pamela Toth   *Fortunes of Texas
  • In The Arms of a Hero by Beverly Barton *Fortunes of Texas
  • Fortune's Secret Child by Shana Delacorte * Fortune's Children
  • Snowbound Cinderella by Ruth Langan* Fortunes of Texas
  • Corporate Daddy by Arlene James *
  • A Willing wife by Jackie Merritt *
  • The baby Pursuit by Laurie Paige *
  • Million Dollar Marriage by Maggie Shayne *
  • I'm your Santa by Lori Foster
  • Yule Be Mine Lori Foster
  • Rebellious Desire by Julie Garood
  • Forever My love by Heather Graham Pozzssere
  • After the Woods by Kim Savage * Total Cover Buy*
  • Black Girl In Paris by Shay Youngblood
  • Love in the time of Global Warming * also a cover buy*
  • The River King by Alice Hoffman

The Nora Roberts Section
And that's just Day 1.  I work the following days of the sale however it's literally down the street so guess where I'll be during lunch??  Let me know if you have read any of these books and share you're recent purchases and let's gush about our books in the comments.

Then because my budget had some room in it I got a few books from Amazon:

I got all three books from the DIMILY series, I read this series a few months ago and I absolutely fell in love with the characters and their stories and the truths they shared. I needed the have them on my shelves as well (I got two as ebook arcs & purchased the 3rd as a ebook as well).  
I also picked up a non fiction book called the 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman. So many people I know have been talking about this and I'm trying to understand what is going on so I snagged a copy for myself.  

Then I snagged a few ebooks over the past few weeks as well.  Including:

Honor Bound by Joey W Hill. I read several of the books in this series and I realized I was missing this one and I'm reading it right now and it's soooo good so far.  

Happy Haulin' and Happy Reading my loves see you next week.
