Stacking The Shelves [241]

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

 Happy Saturday!  It’s 2017, and I have not reformed my ways when it comes to books…. I’m still bringing home a TON of them!  I didn’t even try to resolve to do better about that.  My only resolution was to try to make healthier eating choices.  How about you?  Did you make any resolutions or set any reading goals?  In 2016 I completed the PopSugar Reading Challenge, but only barely!  I have no set reading goals for 2017.  Here are the books that I’ve brought home since the last time I hosted Stacking the Shelves.  Join in the fun and leave your link below!

From My Aunt:  I have an awesome family, including an aunt who’s just as bookish as me (if not more so).  She sent a whole package of books for me and the fam at Christmastime!  What a great start to the new year.  These are the grown-up ones:

Signing Their Lives Away Denise Kiernan

Signing Their Lives Away: The Fame and Misfortune of the Men Who Signed the Declaration of Independence by Denise Kiernan and Joseph d’Agnese

Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpugo

An Utterly Impartial History of Britain: Or 2000 Years of Upper Class Idiots in Charge by John O’Farrell

From the Book Sale at My Library:

Umney's Last Case Stephen King

Umney’s Last Case by Stephen King.  The tiniest Stephen King book I’ve ever seen!  It’s one of his short stories, bound alone.  You could put it in your pocket!

For School:  a new semester begins this upcoming week….

The Power of Reading Insights From the Research Stephen D. Krashen

The Power of Reading: Insights From the Research by Stephen D. Krashen

Reading Matters by Catherine Sheldrick Ross, Lynne (E.F.) McKechnie, and Paulette M. Rothbauer

From My Sister-in-Law:  this is a series of books to be shared by the whole family during Advent.  Can’t wait to pull these back out next year and read with the boy!

Cootie McKay's Nativity Todd Wilson

The Bishop’s Dream by Todd Wilson

Captain Chaos and the Manger Blaster! by Todd Wilson

Cootie McKay’s Nativity by Todd Wilson

Gladys Remembers Christmas by Todd Wilson

The Stranger by Todd Wilson

From the Library:

V is for Vegetables Michael Anthony

V is for Vegetables: Inspired Recipes & Techniques for Home Cooks From Artichokes to Zucchini by Michael Anthony.  This cookbook is HUGE but also GORGEOUS with tons of full-color photographs.  I turn into Pavlov’s dog just looking through it!

The General vs. the President: MacArthur and Truman at the Brink of Nuclear War by H.W. Brands.  I heard this author speak at an event and was really impressed.  This is just his latest book; the hubby is currently reading (and LOVING) an earlier book of his about Reagan.

Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.  I’m loving this older series!  They’re set in a fictional SC town that sounds a lot like a small SC town I used to live in, but with the addition of witches/magic.

Devil Sent the Rain by Lisa Turner.  I recently heard her speak at an event too, and got my interest piqued in her book.

My name is Marie and I live, work, and play in NC. I'm so fortunate to have a job that is so much fun, working in Teen Services in a library. I'll give nearly any author at least one try, but my first love is YA. I've especially enjoyed all the great dystopian fiction that's come out in the last few years!
