New on The Stack in June 2016

Welcome to New on the Stack, where you can share the latest books you’ve added to your reading pile. I’d love for you to join us and add a link to your own post or instagram picture sharing your books! It’s a fun way to see what others will soon be reading, and get even more ideas of books to add to my “I want to read that!” list.New on the Stack button

May had been such a ridiculous month with new books, and then in June I forgot to check my library holds list and ended up with a massive stack. Most of them went right back to the library unread so I’ll share the picture of them but not link them below.

Let’s not talk about how next month’s is already shaping up to be just as ridiculous, thanks to some ill-timed library holds. I shared the picture of my library haul on Instagram, but since I got those in June they won’t be listed until next time. 🙂

  1. Counting by 7s has been on my list for a long time too. I’m anxious to hear what you think. I’ll make time for it someday. 🙂

  2. The Lifegiving Home and 32 Yolks are piquing my interest. I’ve had Counting By 7’s on my shelf for awhile too! I’m sure it’ll be a quick read…just need to read it. A great stack for the month! Thanks for the link up!

  3. I did not realize that Priscilla Shirer had any fiction titles. Please review it on your blog so that we can all know how it is.

    Besides my pick-ups I’ve recently started a kids e-book club for TumbleBooks. I’d love it if you’d take a look at the July selection: http://books.thetechchef.net/july-tumblebooks-book-club/

  4. I just started reading a YA book called The Hired Girl at the recommendation of our librarian and so far it is excellent! I’ll be passing it on to my 12-year-old if I get to the end and like it.
