Stacking the Shelves: March Book Haul

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Each week bloggers post the books they purchased or received. This month I got two e-books and four hardcovers and three paperbacks.

The two e-books I got this month are:

1. Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged (Sofia Khan, #1) by Ayisha Malik



I already read this one and really enjoyed it!

2. The Alchemists of Loom (Loom Saga #1) by Elise Kova



I also got four gorgeous hardcovers this month!

3. The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry



4. The Butcher's Hook by Janet Ellis



5. Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King #1) by Tricia Levenseller



I really enjoyed this book! I love pirates and I'm actually shocked there aren't more pirate stories out there! This YA novel was so entertainting, so much sass! I loved it!

6. Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) by Laini Taylor



Really excited about this one! I got this in the March Fairyloot box!

Lastly, I also got three paperbacks:

7. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood



I really wanted to read this book before the TV show comes out! Also, since I read The Blind Assassin, I've wanted to read more of Atwood's work. I actually managed to read The Handmaid's Tale this month and it was incredible! 

8. The Unseen World by Liz Moore



I've heard great things about this one! Can't wait to read it!

9. The Golem and the Jinni (The Golem and the Jinni #1) by Helene Wecker


I've been wanting to read this for quite some time now. I eventually bought this after reading The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury and truly enjoying the jinni elements. So I just couldn't resist adding The Golem and the Jinni to my library!

  2. Everyone should read The Handmaid's Tale. It's a classic that I have held on to over the years. I also bought Strange The Dreamer, but haven't read it yet. I did enjoy The Alchemist of Loom and Daughter Of The Pirate King. Have fun reading your new books.

  12. I love that cover for The Handmaid's Tale! I'm a huge fan of Margaret Atwood. The Blind Assassin is one of my favorites. The Robber Bride is probably my all-time fav, if you haven't read it yet. Happy reading!

    1. Thank you for the recommendation! I'll be picking up The Robber Bride next! Atwood has written so many books, I find it hard to decide which ones to read next.
