Stacking the Shelves 5/17/14

stacking the shelvesStacking The Shelves  is all about sharing the books you’re adding to your shelves, be it buying or borrowing. From ‘real’ books you’ve purchased, a book you’ve borrowed, a book you’ve been given or an e-book they can all be shared!

I probably won’t be doing a Stacking the Shelves post weekly.  I just don’t buy quantities of books often enough to make it a regular feature.  However, I did just get my hands on a few books that look interesting.

cinder

Cinder by Marissa Meyer – I know I’m late on this one but as I have mentioned in my previous post, I tend to be slow to pick up SciFi.  I just haven’t always “gotten it.”  Cinderella as a cyborg just sounded like too much SciFi for me.  Cyborgs?  But I finally caved.  I downloaded it Thursday night and have been enjoying it.  Surprise, Surprise!

hazards of hunting

The Hazards of Hunting while Heartbroken by Mari Passananti – Summer is coming!  I give my last final on Monday and my kids are done as well.  This looked like a perfect book for lounging on my deck this summer while I’m avoiding planning for next year.  While I hate the term “Chick Lit” I usually find myself gravitating to it at the start of the summer.

scent of lilacs

Scent of Lilacs by Ann H. Gabhart – Doesn’t that cover just scream “Read me!  It’s summer!”  More deck reading!  Yeah!

tabula rasa

And from Netgalley:  Tabula Rasa  by Kristen Lippert-Martin – More SciFi?  Dystopian?  A bit of both.   I’m looking forward to this one.  Sounds like a page turner!

  1. Cinder is a great way to dip your toes into the world of sci-fi! It has just a bit but enough enough to overwhelm you. Really glad you’re enjoying it! Happy reading.
