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

October TBR & 30-Day Reading Challenge

I am seriously behind in my reading challenges. According to Goodreads I’m 17 books behind my goal of 43. I know I’m not going to mak that goal, but I’m going to give it the ole college try; and get halfway through the 43, which is about 22 books.

Stacking the Shelves – End of June

My last Stacking the Shelves encompassed the books I procured during May and mid-June and since then I have managed to acquire a few more.

I love, love going to the used book sales, especially the library book sales. Oh, the treasures.

I have a technique. One that’s been admired by men and women alike. I start in one spot, check out the tops of the tables and then move on to the boxes on the floor under the tables and sometimes there are boxes stacked on top of boxes. Continue reading

Stacking the Shelves May & June

I’ve been thinking about sharing the books I procure throughout the week, but never have as I don’t try not to buy books every week and I must admit I’ve been doing a pretty good job of it. But I thought I’d give it a go this week since I got some pretty good book booty. So, buckle up this is going to cover May and June.

I found the Stacking the Shelves meme sometime last year and thought it fit me best.

Some of you may already know that I work at Barnes and Noble (B&N) part-time. Continue reading
