Stacking the Shelves {4}

STACKING THE SHELVES
Be sure to check what everyone else has added to their shelves over at Tynga's Reviews!

From the Library:

Bought with Birthday Gift Card:
  • The Passing Bells by Phillip Rock - This was totally on a previous Stacking the Shelves post because I got it for my Kindle but then I kinda wanted a hard copy so...
  • Circles of Time by Phillip Rock - Book two so I can continue the family saga when I finish book one!
  • The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey - I've been wanting to read this for a while now 
  • The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende - This was an unplanned purchase but I totally fell in love with the cover and had to take it home

For Review from NetGalley:
  • The Tin Horse by Janice Steinberg - The blurb compared it to A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and that's one of my favorites so I hope it lives up to that comparison
  • The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin - I love historical fiction based on real events, so of course I want to read about the marriage of Charles Lindbergh & Anne Morrow Lindbergh
  • Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham - This is one celebrity book I have no shame reading and fully expect to love this book
  • The Bracelet by Roberta Gately - I was really intrigued by this book's synopsis and its focus on human trafficking
  • Shadow on the Crown by Patricia Bracewell - I love reading about royalty, so I hope I love this book about the Queen of Normandy in medieval times
  • Me Before You by Jojo Moyes - I wanted to read this after it was the Blogger Recommendation on Rather Be Reading's January Big Kids' Table post

  1. You've got some great titles this week! I have to ask though - is the Vampire Academy series definitely worth reading? I've been hesitant to check it out.

    1. Let me answer that: YES. You should at least give book 1 a try (and then get addicted like me, haha.)

      Hannah - we must talk Bloodlines when I get to it! I bought the first two books (even though I still have 4 VA books to read) and I can't WAIT to read them :D

    2. Alexa - I really enjoyed the Vampire Academy series, and I'm not a huge paranormal/vampire person! They were so fascinating and engaging that I just devoured them! I'm actually surprised that Twilight has become the vampire book most people read/think of because these are way better!

      And Judith - Yes, we must talk about all these books! I LOVE that you bought them all without even finishing the series! Too funny :) I've gotten them all from the library, but I think I might need to buy them now too!
