Stacking the Shelves: Strong Lady Leads Edition

Happy Saturday! This week we are back with Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. After a couple of weekends of traveling and adventures in Cape Cod and the like, we are happy to be home, sitting in the sun, and reading on this lovely fall weekend!

Grad Student here--I just got my hands on Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Fantasy and teenage girl assassins! This book has had great reviews so far, so I can't wait to read it. And for review, we just received a copy of The Hands of Tarot by S.M. Blooding. It sounds awesome, and we are jazzed to get involved. because we like strong female leads. See the blurb below to learn more about Blooding's tale.

What is new on your shelves?The Hands of TarotThrone of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

She killed his father. She imprisoned and beat him. And now she thinks he’s her trophy. Synn El’Asim will do almost anything to prove her wrong. But he’s only proving her right. Queen Nix awakened his Mark of power and inducted him into the House of Wands. She knew what she was doing. The son of the two most powerful Families standing against her is the ultimate prize. What she didn’t take into consideration was that maybe he was too strong for her. Maybe. But the Families aren’t. They’ve been weakened and it’ll take a lot more than one young man with a powerful Mark to take on the Hands of Tarot.(GoodReads).
