New on Your Stack (volume 30)

Some highlights from the books from last month’s linkup:


Renegades coverKate (Opinionated Book Lover) was first on her library holds list for Marissa Meyer’s new book Renegades. I am 15th on my library’s hold list. Sigh.

Why this makes me as sad as it does I’m not sure, since it’s not like I’m lacking in reading material. I’m hoping I love this one as much as I’ve loved her previous books.


Emily of New Moon coverJill (Days at Home) has all of the Emily books by Lucy Maud Montgomery on her reading stack this month. I’ve joined a Facebook group that is going to be reading a different Montgomery book every month next year, so I’ll finally be reading all of the Emily books.

I need to figure out which ones I own, and which ones I still will need to obtain, either by buying copies, or getting them from the library. As much as I try to minimize the books I add to my collection, I’m leaning towards buying the Emily books, justifying it that my kids will hopefully read them someday. Or at least my girls.


How To Ace the National Geographic Bee coverStacie (Sincerely Stacie) always has the most interesting National Geographic books in her monthly lists – this time it’s How To Ace the National Geographic Bee. I love those sorts of books, and so does my son.

I’ll keep this one in mind for future years when I think he’ll appreciate it more.


City of Shadows coverArwen (The Tech Chef) brought Jack Conner to my attention, and I’m curious about his book City of Shadows. I’m not entirely sure he’s the author for me – he describes himself as a “fantasy, horror, and science fiction author,” so it all depends on if the “horror” in that is in every book, or only some of his books that I can then avoid.

Homeschooling Update: New on the (Homeschool) Stack

I blog every month about the books I add to my reading stack, but I’ve never thought about sharing the new homeschooling-related titles I add. This month’s post includes about three month’s worth of new books.

National Parks: A Kid’s Guide to America’s Parks, Monuments and Landmarks

I saw this one on my friend Sarah’s Instagram, and immediately wanted it. I love love love the National Parks and a fun title like this looked like one we would all enjoy.

Castle by David Macaulay

We’re in the middle of learning about the era of European castles in history, so I couldn’t resist when I found this title on a great deal.

Legends & Leagues South Storybook (& Workbook)

Wanted to try this as it looked like a fun approach to geography.

Cabin on Trouble Creek by Jean Van Leeuwen

This title appears on a lot of recommended fiction lists, so I grabbed it on sale.

Who Was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart by Yona Zeldis McDonough

Another sale title (so hard to resist titles when they’re super inexpensive!), because I love having additional easier readers on hand to give to my kids when I need something to keep them busy.

Mirette on the High Wire by Emily Arnold McCully

Another one where I couldn’t resist the screaming deal.

Science Encyclopedia

It’s beyond where my kids are right now, but I’m hoping they get some use out of it. They’ve loved the other Usborne science titles they’ve used.


The Way Things Work Now by David Macaulay

Couldn’t resist this on sale either, and I think they are going to LOVE it when I finally pull it off the shelf.


Bible Explorer’s Guide

Looks like the sort of book we all enjoy, and it’s SO HARD for me to resist Bible reference books that I think my kids will like.


Dear Deer: A Book of Homophones by Gene Barretta

Very cute, but I’d only say get it if you find an amazing deal like I did (love damaged book sales when the “damage” ends up being super minor).


Life Skills for Kids: Equipping Your Child for the Real World by Christine Field

I maybe should have listed this in my usual New on the Stack post, because it is for me. Except it is homeschooling-related so I’m keeping it here. I’m not sure how useful this will be, but I’m giving it a try.


No Stress Chess

No, it’s not a book, but it is for school. So far my son really likes this, and I’m enjoying it as well (I’ve never played chess before, so we’re both learning).

New on Your Stack (volume 29)

Some highlights from the books from last month’s linkup:


Cover for Deadly SanctuaryI am so excited for Annette (AKBookworm) because she’s going to be reading Cinder for the first time! Such a great book, and a great series. I hope she loves it.

Annette also highlighted Deadly Sanctuary, which intrigues me thanks to the Arizona setting.


Cover of A Fool & His MonetJill (Days at Home) let me know that A Fool & His Monet is currently free for Kindle, so I figured it was worth a try. I like the main character being an FBI special agent focused on art crimes. It may be a little too suspense/romance focused for me to love, but I’ll try it. Someday.


Cover of Fire and FantasyArwen (The Tech Chef) added a slew of fantasy novels in August, and despite knowing nothing about any of the authors, I’m so tempted by the Fire and Fantasy collection simply because it’s only $.99 and includes 20 books. That’s a whole lot of reading material for a dollar.


Cover of Beneath a Scarlet SkyStacie (Sincerely Stacie) added so many great books to her reading stack in August. Fortunately for the sake of my TBR stack, I’ve already read many of them! Reading People, Option B, For the Love, Gulp, Grunt, and How to Manage Your Home without Losing Your Mind. All of them range from “worth reading” to “read this as soon as possible” in my recommended reading scale. 🙂

I am interested in the novel Beneath a Scarlet Sky, by Mark Sullivan. It sounds like an amazing premise, and to hear that it’s based on a true story? Astonishing.

What’s embarrassing to report is that when I went to Amazon to find out the details of Beneath a Scarlet Sky, it tells me that I already own the item, and have since April. So much for me keeping track of new books.

New on Your Stack (Volume 28)

Some highlights from the books from last month’s linkup:


What She Ate coverStacie (Sincerly Stacie) is killing my TBR stack this month – SO MANY BOOKS that I want to add to my list. Two were already there: Reading People (which I’ve already pre-ordered), and What She Ate, (which I’d recently put on my library wishlist, a kind of a holding spot for books I may borrow soon). Then there was The Silent Sister, which sounds great, and Where the Light Falls – I do love historical fiction in unfamiliar time periods. Plus her kids’ books – especially Our Story Begins and that Weird but True Daily Planner looks so much fun. And my kids don’t even need it!


Reading People CoverSpeaking of adding to my TBR, Kate (Opinionated Book Lover), isn’t far behind Stacie. Kate is also on the book launch team for Reading People, and I’m trying to convince myself that I am not jealous of that. That I have my own copy of the book arriving soon as I’ve preordered it. It’s only somewhat working.

Then there’s Something Like Happy, which I’m eyeing as a possible light-yet-discussable book club option. And of course, I’m curious about The Book of Air, considering my obsession this summer with reading all things connected with Jane Eyre. Finally, Seven Stones sounds like a book I would love – Scotland, magic, historical fiction. It’s not available at my library, so I’m not sure I’ll get to it, but it’s tempting.


Talon coverAnnette (AKBookworm) is new to the linkup, and she has some great new books on her stack for July – like Quiet and Wired for Story. She also introduced me to Talon, the first book in a series about dragons. I love the dragon idea, but I’m not certain if I like the teenage-romance angle it possibly appears to take. I’ll have to dig into the reviews, before I fall for the premise and great covers.


The Bones Will Speak coverAs always, Jill (Days at Home) has some of the prettiest book covers featured. What catches my eye the most though is The Bones Will Speak. I’m intrigued by the forensic artist perspective, so I’m considering picking up the first in the series, A Cry from the Dust.


Arwen (The Tech Chef) has a *very* intriguing food book on her list: The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet. I like my vegetarian meals at times, but I’ve never wanted to go 100% vegetarian or vegan. I’m curious what this has to say.
