New on Your Stack (volume 31)

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

I’m curious about As Bright As Heaven, mentioned by Stacie (Sincerely Stacie.) It’s not a time period that gets a lot of attention in historical fiction, but I find it fascinating/horrifying.

Kate (Opinionated Book Lover) highlights Secondborn, which sounds like an intriguing start to a series. I’m definitely going to let her finish it and say what she thinks about it before trying it myself, and I might even wait until the next in the series is released.

Jill (Days at Home) has lots of fun books on her list, including Louise Penny’s The Nature of the Beast, the previously-mentioned As Bright As Heaven, and The English Wife, which I currently have borrowed from the library.

Love seeing books I’ve recently finished pop up on others lists, and Annette (AKBookworm) featured Hex Hall, which I read earlier this month (and I’ve already borrowed the sequel).

  1. I haven’t started Secondborn yet. I the ARC of the second book – Traitorborn – arrived last week, so I need to get to it soon. I went a little crazy on NetGalley a couple of weeks ago, so my iPhone Kindle app is loaded with eARCs that I want to read too. So many books!

  2. I haven’t started AS BRIGHT AS HEAVEN yet, but it is next up. It comes out Feb 6, so I’m hoping to have it done by then. I usually like Meissner’s books, so I’m counting on that!
