New on the Stack in January 2018

Here are the books I’ve gained since last month’s post. I’ve spent most of this month moving and taking care of all the loose ends associated with that, so I didn’t get as much this month. Plus, I’m working on reading and getting rid of books instead of gaining ones I don’t have time to read. 😀 I will be linking this post up to The Deliberate Reader.

Purchased eBook

I’m not actually sure why I picked this one up… 😀

When Ash Rains Down by Cecelia Earl

I’m fairly sure the author followed or liked my blog and that’s how I ended up on her blog and how I ended up borrowing this book.

The Roommate ‘Dis’agreement by Leddy Harper

Mostly judging this one by the title and cover. Seems cute.

Meet Clara Andrews by Lacey London

I think this was maybe suggested by Kindle Unlimited? I really should pay attention why I pick up the books I do…

What did you pick up this month?

Happy Holidays! I hope 2017 was a great year for you!

Here are the books I picked up since last month’s post. The only physical ones I got were from my The Broke and Bookish Secret Santa (you can see all that I got here), but I picked up quite a bit of eBooks.  I will be linking this post up to The Deliberate Reader.

Wow, another month has already gone by! Here are the books I’ve obtained since last month’s post. I didn’t pick up very many this month, mostly for budget related reasons.
