New on Your Stack (volume 13)

Some highlights from the books you shared about in this month’s linkup:

Stars AboveKate (Mom’s Radius) will be reading Marissa Meyer’s Stars Above: A Lunar Chronicles Collection. I will also be reading Stars Above, as soon as my turn arrives at the library. Well, I suppose it’s possibly I’ll hear dreadful things about the book and rethink that plan, but they would have to be devastatingly bad reviews, and even then I’ll probably try it myself at least a bit. I do love this series. :)


11 22 63Tanya (The Other Side of the Road) has some great books in her February stack. Jen Hatmaker’s For the Love and Kate Morton’s The Lake House are both so good, and I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about Steven King’s 11/22/6311/22/63: A Novel. I’m only hesitating on reading it because of the length.


Find the GoodStacie (Sincerely Stacie) always has an interesting mix of books, and I’m most intrigued by Find the Good: Unexpected Life Lessons from a Small-Town Obituary WriterFind the Good: Unexpected Life Lessons from a Small-Town Obituary Writer by Heather Lende. It sounds like the sort of nonfiction I always enjoy, so I’m looking forward to hearing what she thinks of it and if it’s worth seeking out.


Food a Love StoryEllen (Bookspired) is reading Big Little Lies this month. I’ll be reading that later this year with my Facebook book club. She’s also reading Food: A Love StoryFood: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan and I’ve heard so many people rave about this title that I need to give it a try soon.


Stars Over Sunset BoulevardJill (Days at Home) has several books I’ve never heard of on her list – and with some really compelling covers I need to look into them and see if they’re right for me. Stars Over Sunset BoulevardStars Over Sunset Boulevard and The Feathered BoneThe Feathered Bone are the ones that most catch my eye and have me seeing if my library has them.


RebeccaJessica (Quirky Bookworm) is listening to Rebecca, which reminds me that my in-person book club is reading RebeccaRebecca for March. I have read exactly zero pages in Rebecca, and our meeting is March 10. Perhaps it’s time for me to get started on it? :)

Also, she’s reading The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll Through the Hidden Connections of the English LanguageThe Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll Through the Hidden Connections of the English Language which I’ve had on my Kindle for ages and have read zero pages of it, for no good reason other than I’ve got way too many books on my Kindle. I need reading deadlines sometimes to get to my books, and when they’re not library books they tend to get ignored. :(

  1. You will not be disappointed with Stars Above. It is a wonderful companion to the series. Enjoy!

  2. I adore Rebecca!!

  3. Thanks for the feature. I never did make it through 11/22/63. It was just too long! I read Rebecca many years ago, and really enjoyed it!

  4. I LOOOVED Rebecca! Can’t drink coffee/eat an orange without thinking about it.

  5. Thanks for the mention. I hope I can get to that one soon too! Stars Over Sunset Boulevard is waiting in my stack too!

  6. I read Rebecca last year, and it was one of my favorites of the year. I feel like it starts slow but really picks up about halfway through. So worth it! I just read Stars Above and it’s not life-changing, but I loved reading more about the characters. :)

    I thought the length on 11/22/63 would be killer, but I read it all in a week. Could NOT put it down. So good.
