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.
