Stacking the Shelves – December

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! I can’t believe it in just a few hours, if you’re on the East Coast in the U.S., we’re giving 2017 the boot and ushering in 2018 with open arms.

I haven’t done a one of these for quite sometime. I’m going to include Stacking the Shelves to the new monthly feature, Monthly Roundup.

So, what am I stacking the shelves with, eh?

1. Iron Gold by Pierce Brown – This is the latest installment of the Red Rising Saga. I went to work and it was sitting there all by its lonesome, so I thought I’d give it a good home; even though I’m not supposed to be adding any more ARCs to my collection. At least not until I get caught up.

Release Date: January 16, 2018
Publisher: Random House
Format: Hardcover, 480 pages Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday – Winter TBR

I haven’t felt much like reading or blogging since my surgery. And if truth be told all I’ve wanted to do is just lie in bed these last few days because I’ve been in a lot of pain. I blame it on Thanksgiving. Must’ve been something I ate.

A Few Books on my Fall TBR Wish List

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday really didn’t light a fire under me. So, I thought I’d post some of the books I wish I had to read this Fall. But alas I’m trying to catch up. You can see my Fall TBR here.

  1. Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie
    Although Home Fire didn’t make it to the Man Booker Prize short list it’s on the long list with a host of other spectacular authors. I’ve seen mixed reviews on this and it’s either people love it or hate it.The suspenseful and heartbreaking story of an immigrant family driven to pit love against loyalty, with devastating consequences.

    Two families’ fates are inextricably, devastatingly entwined, in this searing novel that asks: What sacrifices will we make in the name of love? Continue reading
