Recent Acquisitions: Post-Holiday Hauls

For review:
Because, what with the backlog of several months' worth of ARCs from this past semester, I clearly need more. Bring on the review-fest.
The Pomegranate Lady and Her Sons by Goli Taraghi (First Look)
On Such a Full Sea by Chang-rae Lee (Early Reviewers)
I Shall Be Near to You by Erin Lindsay McCabe (publisher)
Taking What I Like by Linda Bamber (TLC Book Tours)

Indians of Burke County and Western North Carolina by Larry Richard Clark
A Very Mutinous People: The Struggle for North Carolina, 1660-1713 by Noeleen McIlvenna
All the Best Rubbish by Ivor Noel Hume
Archaeological Study Bible
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

I might have gone a bit overboard with purchasing books.

Purchased at Fifth Street Books in Mebane:
*If anyone lives close enough to make a drive there, everything's $0.99 and there's a weekend each month where everything is $0.25! I only had 30 minutes when I went, otherwise I would've bought much more...
Old Creole Days by George Washington Cable
The Charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal
King Harald's Saga by Snorri Sturluson
Laxdaela Saga
The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper

Purchased used from my favorite antique mall:
