Stacking the Shelves {January 2014}

Hey y'all! It's Lesley Anne and I'm back to link up with Tynga's Reviews and show you guys the books I added to my shelves this month. I'm still spending down some of my Christmas money, so after a few pre-orders that will come in in February, I think these book hauls will start to get much much smaller. Sad times, I know, but I want to make sure I don't spend too much money on books this year. Famous last words, though, right? ;)

Anyway, if you live in the U.S., you might have heard that it snowed this week here in the South. I'll let you see for yourself why this made national news, but I bring it up because I decided to take advantage of this rare occasion here in Georgia and took my book haul photos outside in the snow! The snow itself isn't very obvious in the photos, and I'm sure my neighbors thought I was certifiably insane when they saw me taking these, but overall I'm pleased with how they turned out. So without further ado, here are the beauties I added to my shelves this month!
