Stacking the Shelves: Monsters Edition

Happy Saturday! Today we are back at Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tygna's Reviews to help book blogger share whats new on their bookshelves. This week I have TWO new books, both free, and both about monsters. First, Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama is a brand-new library book. I am the first to get it- huzzah! It is a supposed to be a dark, scary mermaid story, with some historical fiction and colonial Williamsburg thrown in for good measure. I haven't had much experience with mermaid books, but here we go!

               Sweet Venom (Medusa Girls #1)Monstrous Beauty

The second book is Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs. The monsters here are Greek in variety. I got this read free from Barnes and Noble for my Nook. I didn't know B&N did that, but it is cool with me! What have you added to your shelves this week?


  1. GREAT haul! I've heard nothing but good things about 'Monstrous Beauty' so I hope you'll like it too :) I haven't heard about Sweet Venom, but I do love anything Greek! Enjoy & thanks for sharing!

  9. I picked up Sweet Venom this week, too. I'm looking forward to reading it!

  10. Ooooooh, I can get down with both of these books. Monsters and me... well, let's just say we have a very torrid love affair. I'm very intrigued to see what all this mermaid hype is about and Greek monsters just rock my world! Definitely interested to know what you think of both books!
