New on the Stack in January 2015

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.

  1. Smoke Gets In Your Eyes sounds fascinating….and with two toddlers running around I also look forward to your thoughts on No-Drama Discipline…… Thanks for hosting the link-up 🙂

    • If I could find a parenting book called just “No Drama” I’d be all over it. I’m not sure if it’s just my kids or not, but there is always lots of drama over something or other, and 99% of the time it’s over ridiculously minor.

  2. What a fun link up. I’ll try to do it next month! No Drama Discipline is on my list (read the previous book and really benefited). I’ll be looking for your review on that one!

    • Please do – I’d love to see the books you’ve added. You always have interesting choices.

      It may be awhile on that review. I’m slow lately on reading any nonfiction.

  3. I love this link up! Thanks to Quirky Bookworm for sharing it. My post is going live on Monday and I’ll be linking up!

  4. Ah what a fun linkup!! I’m going to try to stick with you on this 🙂

    I like fairy tale retellings too. I should see if my library has an e-version of one of Shannon Hale’s books.

    • She’s good at it – hope you can find a copy of one of hers! (And I assume you’ve read Cinder and the rest of that series?? That’s my new favorite fairy tale retelling)

  5. What a great idea! I am always on the look out for new books (as I noted in my post). I was in the bookstore today, it’s been a while. I forgot how a book cover can call your name, I guess it was the same with Seraphina (I love purple). I need to get back to the bookstore! So excited for this linkup!

  6. This is a BRILLIANT linkup! I am so glad you have this, and I hope to join in next month! I too saw Seraphina’s cover at the library and did a “oooh, pretty” thing, but my hands were too full and time was too short. How is it so far? Meanwhile, excuse me while I check out some of your linkers…

    • I hope you do join in next month!

      Seraphina wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be, but it was still good enough that I find myself thinking about the world the author created, and wondering what happens next. I will be reading the next in the series too, so clearly it was good enough for that. I think my hopes were just a bit too high for it. 🙂
