Stacking the Shelves 6

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.

The Crimson Hunt  by Victoria H. Smith Series: Eldaen Light Chronicles, #1Publication date: November 8th 2012 College junior Ariel Richmond is working on year three of Project Normalcy. Her house reeks of keggers past and her bestie is just a slight bit vulgar. But the thing is—they both aid in making life refreshingly uneventful.
