My Book Haul 2-9-2019

The newest additions to my TBR pile:  Quintland Sisters by Shelley Wood, No Exit by Taylor Adams, Glow : Book I, Potency by Aubrey Hadley, Buzz Books 2019 YA Spring/Summer, That Ain't Witchcraft by Seanan McGuire, Fighting Destiny by Amelia Hutchins, Bad Magic set, Enter the Witch by Andris Bear, Blood Vice by Angela Roquet, Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, It's Never Too Late To Begin Again by Julia Cameron, Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire, Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan, Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire, and In An Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire

In need of a new way to showcase titles, I decided that My Book Haul seems like a good fit. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. I've included links to Amazon if you want more information.
