Stacking the Shelves: Nook Purchases

Because I moved, I'm not near a bookstore anymore, which means I haven't been able to just wander around a bookstore and pick something out, so my physical book buying is pretty much at a stand still. This is both good and bad. Good because I can not add to my ever growing TBR pile as quickly as I could have with weekly trips to the bookstore. Bad because I miss my book store!!
I have been purchasing a few things on my nook to hold me over on the book buying feeling. The $2.99 and under section always sucks me in.

 





















Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover I've read one other Colleen Hoover book, Hopeless and I enjoyed it. I have heard that lots of people LOVE this book, which is one of her newest ones, so I thought I would give it a try. I've heard it's quite emotional, which after reading Hopeless, that doesn't surprise me.
Order of Darkness book 1: Changeling by Phillipa Gregory I know nothing about this book besides the fact that it is young adult historical fiction, possibly fantasy, written by Phillipa Gregory. I have yet to read one of her novels, which is crazy because I love historical fiction and the Tudor age which she specializes in.
The Agency book 1: A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee I saw this book on someone's underrated books list last Tuesday, and then found it was under $2.99 on my nook so I picked it up. It's a Victorian mystery that sounds like a fun and quick read. I'm really looking forward to picking this one up.

  1. I remember enjoying Y.S. Lee's book; it wasn't my favourite ever, and I'm not finishing the series, but I did like it. I hope you really enjoy it! I don't really get on with Philippa Gregory's work, which makes me sad because on the surface it's everything I should love, and if I ever write the thesis I vaguely dream about, I'd need to look at her work. Oh well, lots of people think very highly of her work, so it's just a personal thing -- hope you love it!

  2. I definitely need to read Maybe Someday! It sounds so good, and I have enjoyed Colleen Hoover's other books. Also, I feel bad that you have no bookstore nearby! Hope you enjoy these :)
