Stacking the Shelves [27]

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we get to gab on about the books we've won, bought, or otherwise received in the past week. Bear with me this week, guys. I skipped last week's, because I was out of town in St. Louis to go see Beauty and the Beast on stage. It was amazing, by the way. Buuuuut because I skipped, I have double the load this week. Oops! I also actually bought some this week from my library, because I have an addiction...
