Stacking the Shelves [275]

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!
EnregistrerMy complete shelf stack over at Reading Reality got rather tall this week. I saw oodles of interesting looking books at NetGalley and Edelweiss. Possibly too many.

But I'd still like to share a couple of books with you, just to tease.

Artifact (Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt #1) by Gigi Pandian

This is the first book in Pandian's lovely Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt series. I read the fifth book this week, The Ninja's Illusion, and loved it, so I immediately went off to get the rest of the series. If you enjoyed the late Elizabeth Peters' Vicky Bliss series, you'll love Jaya Jones. If you like mysteries with quirky heroines that have a great mix of cozy characters with adventurous exploits, you'll also love Jaya. I know I did!

The Governess Who Captured His Heart (Honorable Scoundrels #1) by Sophie Barnes

I also nabbed all three books in Sophie Barnes' new Honorable Scoundrels series. I really enjoy her historical romances, because she does a lovely job of turning the established tropes on their pointy little heads without making her heroines too modern, and therefor too anachronistic. Her books are always a good time, so I'm looking forward to reading this series. And they are all marvelously short! There are times when a quick little read to whisk you away is just what you're looking for, and these look like they will fill that particular bill quite admirably.
