Stacking the Shelves: April Book Haul

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Each week bloggers post the books they purchased or received. These are the books I got in April:

1. The Emperor's Blades (Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne) by Brian Staveley

I've heard great things about this book and I can't wait to read it!

2. The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton

3. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

4. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell

5. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

North and South is one of my favourite classics and so I decided to get this pretty edition. I also love the BBC adaptation and I highly recommend both of them!

6. Evelina by Frances Burney

I also got a couple of e-books this month:

7. Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett 

I already read and reviewed this book, really enjoyed it!

8. The Girl of Fire and Thorns Complete Collection (Fire and Thorns 0.5-3) by Rae Carson

I found this on for less than 9 euros, so I just couldn't resist getting this trilogy and all the novella's. I haven't read anything by Rae Carson yet, but I'm looking forward to starting this series!

Finally, I went to one of my favourite bookstores in Ghent, called Limerick.

9. In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

I've heard a lot of great things about this classics and I've wanted to read it for quite some time, so when I saw it in the bookstore, I decided to get it without hesitation.

10. The Arrival by Shaun Tan

Yes, I already read this one, but I need it for an assignment and the copy of my local library has been unavailable for some time now, so I decided to get it and
