I put in my first (of many) orders on Wordery this month, and they arrived this week. Here they are a-la Stacking the Shelves/Mailbox Monday!

  • Dirty Magic by Jaye Wells – I should have bought this when it came out last year! But hey, better late than never. I adored the first 4 books in Wells’ Sabina Kane series, and hope she delivers the same awesome humour in this book.
  • Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre – Remember how I said Aguirre was an auto-buy? Well, voila. That being said, this book sounds great even without her name attached. Fierce, dangerous and fun.

  • Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf – Volume 1 – My very first graphic novel was a Patricia Briggs adaptation and I have come a loooong way since then (in terms of being a GN reader!). Hope the adaptation holds up to a more “trained” eye.

Wordery – an independent UK-based site that offers free international shipping and is a great alternative to Amazon. This was my first time shopping with them, and I was very happy with everything. The books were sent out individually – so no waiting for them to be packaged together – and 2/3 came in cardboard packaging. I much prefer that, as it is easier to recycle and better for the planet. Wordery currently has 10% off everything online, so head on over while that is going on!

For the record: this is NOT a sponsored post. I bought these books myself and was never contacted by wordery to feature them. I just wanted to spread the word about an Amazon alternative, what with BookDepository having sold its soul 🙁
