In The Stacks (17)

What I added to my stacks (and stacks and stacks) this week. I am linking up with Stacking The Shelves by Tynga’s Reviews.

I am slowing down on the book buying front because my TBR mountain needs to be tackled. When you start to run out of shelf space, it means you need to read the books you own.

For Review

 

The Thinking Womans Guide To Real Magic by Emily Cory Barker

The Thinking Woman’s Guide To Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker

Nora Fischer’s dissertation is stalled and her boyfriend is about to marry another woman.  During a miserable weekend at a friend’s wedding, Nora wanders off and walks through a portal into a different world where she’s transformed from a drab grad student into a stunning beauty.  Before long, she has a set of glamorous new friends and her romance with gorgeous, masterful Raclin is heating up. It’s almost too good to be true.

Then the elegant veneer shatters. Nora’s new fantasy world turns darker, a fairy tale gone incredibly wrong. Making it here will take skills Nora never learned in graduate school. Her only real ally—and a reluctant one at that—is the magician Aruendiel, a grim, reclusive figure with a biting tongue and a shrouded past. And it will take her becoming Aruendiel’s student—and learning magic herself—to survive. When a passage home finally opens, Nora must weigh her “real life” against the dangerous power of love and magic.

The Thinking Woman’s Guide To Real Magic just sounds fun. I really do love magic in books and do not read enough of them with it. Also, the cover is very cool, seems to be filled with lots of hints at the plot.

What did you add to your stacks this week?
