New on Your Stack (Volume 28)

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

What She Ate coverStacie (Sincerly Stacie) is killing my TBR stack this month – SO MANY BOOKS that I want to add to my list. Two were already there: Reading People (which I’ve already pre-ordered), and What She Ate, (which I’d recently put on my library wishlist, a kind of a holding spot for books I may borrow soon). Then there was The Silent Sister, which sounds great, and Where the Light Falls – I do love historical fiction in unfamiliar time periods. Plus her kids’ books – especially Our Story Begins and that Weird but True Daily Planner looks so much fun. And my kids don’t even need it!

Reading People CoverSpeaking of adding to my TBR, Kate (Opinionated Book Lover), isn’t far behind Stacie. Kate is also on the book launch team for Reading People, and I’m trying to convince myself that I am not jealous of that. That I have my own copy of the book arriving soon as I’ve preordered it. It’s only somewhat working.

Then there’s Something Like Happy, which I’m eyeing as a possible light-yet-discussable book club option. And of course, I’m curious about The Book of Air, considering my obsession this summer with reading all things connected with Jane Eyre. Finally, Seven Stones sounds like a book I would love – Scotland, magic, historical fiction. It’s not available at my library, so I’m not sure I’ll get to it, but it’s tempting.

Talon coverAnnette (AKBookworm) is new to the linkup, and she has some great new books on her stack for July – like Quiet and Wired for Story. She also introduced me to Talon, the first book in a series about dragons. I love the dragon idea, but I’m not certain if I like the teenage-romance angle it possibly appears to take. I’ll have to dig into the reviews, before I fall for the premise and great covers.

The Bones Will Speak coverAs always, Jill (Days at Home) has some of the prettiest book covers featured. What catches my eye the most though is The Bones Will Speak. I’m intrigued by the forensic artist perspective, so I’m considering picking up the first in the series, A Cry from the Dust.

Arwen (The Tech Chef) has a *very* intriguing food book on her list: The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet. I like my vegetarian meals at times, but I’ve never wanted to go 100% vegetarian or vegan. I’m curious what this has to say.

  1. So many great books this last month! All our to read lists are exploding! I still need to figure it how you get so many read each month!

  2. You just reminded me of how much I am slacking on reading the books I planned this month. I finished and loved Reading People (review coming on 8/30), but I haven’t really read anything else from my list. Oops! I’ll get to them in the remaining week of the month or perhaps in September. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I found Where the Light Falls tragically disappointing. I had a review copy, but I buried the review in a Hodge Podge post because I always feel bad writing negatively when I get a book for free. Maybe you’ll think differently and enlighten me!

  4. Thanks for sharing a book you found on my blog! I hope you get a chance to read (and enjoy) Talon. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also loved the other books on the list – I added “The Big Fat Surprise” to my to-read list this month as well.

  5. Reading People caught my eye too. My Grandmother ended up reading The Big Fat Surprise, I just couldn’t get into. She thought it was pretty good though. She did mark a couple of pages for me to read to get the just of it. No more low fat mayo around here ๐Ÿ˜‰
