Stacking The Shelves #73

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly haul meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality. It is about sharing enthusiasm for the new books added to our shelves – be it physical, ebooks, galleys or borrowed from the library.

Didn’t have much of a haul last week so I added them to this week’s post instead!

Lady HotspurLady Hotspur by Tessa Gratton
