Stacking The Shelves #24

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  Go their blog to see the complete list for all the blogs that do this post (there's usually around 100 blogs!).  It is a lot of fun to blog hop and see what's trending in books!

I am finally feeling back to normal after being sick for weeks!  It was a rather slow week in reading (only two books), but I did get a lot of blogging done!!  After last week's tremendous book haul, I only have a few new acquisitions.  But I have such a backlog of books, I am not unhappy about his week's light load.  

I have this coming week off (Whoo hoo!!!) and I plan on reading as much as I can.

Each book cover is linked to GoodReads, if you want more information.

Read This Week:


I loved The Storyteller, by Jodi Picoult.  It has so many layers and nuances to it.  I will be posting a review of this soon, but I must say that any book strong enough to make me cry is going to get lots of stars from me.  I do not cry easily.

Borrowed From A Friend:

I don't know much about this book, but my co-worker recommended it to me and I trust her judgement in these matters.  She is the one who got me to read The Nightingale, By Kristin Hannah, which was amazing!

Bought - Kindle:

I loved the first Aurora Sky novel so much I bought the next one!  I am really looking forward to this book!

I also went on a buying spree on Amazon and pre-ordered a bunch of books that are coming out soon.  There are so many books coming out in April & May, many on the same day!

 What books did you get that you are itching to get to?  Let me know in the comments.

  1. Ooooh Jodi Picoult. I love her books but I haven't read The Storyteller yet. I bet it's going to be amazing though! :)

    Happy Reading!

    My STS!

  2. Hi Stephanie! Yes, The Storyteller was a 5 star book! Very tough , at times, due to the subject matter (The Holocaust) but ultimately, very satisfying.

  3. The Storyteller was a very good read! I'm glad you're feeling better! Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead. :-)

  4. I'm glad you're feeling a lot better-there is nothing as bad as feeling horrible for an extended period of time. It's good that you feel better in time for a break and I hope you get lots of reading done!

  5. Sorry you haven't been well. Hope you enjoy your week off and all your great books :0)
    Take care,

  6. Ooh nice! I need to read the first Aurora Sky book still! Hope you enjoy it!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  18. There are SO many books coming out over the next few weeks. I've held off on buying...so far. I've owned Dorothy Must Die for ages, but still haven't read it. I hope you are having a fabulous week off!

  19. I haven't heard of any of the these except Dorothy Must Die. It was a pretty good book. The series covers are fantastic!

  22. At least you're not sick on your week off! Lots of reading! *throws confetti* I keep seeing Dorothy Must Die and I don't know why, it's not that appealing to me. Maybe in the future. I hope you enjoy!
