New on Your Stack (volume 8)

Casting with a Fragile ThreadI’m actually kind of happy to report that Kate did not add any books to my TBR list this month.

Not-so-coincidentally, I have already read many of the books on her list. 🙂

My fingers are crossed that she enjoys Casting with a Fragile Thread, since she’s reading it on my recommendation.


The War that Saved My LifeTanya also mentions a book I’ve already read – The War that Saved My Life. Such a great read!


Magna CartaJessica‘s going to be reviewing Magna Carta: The Birth of LibertyMagna Carta: The Birth of Liberty by Dan Jones, and I am very intrigued by this one. The history nerd in me hopes it’s fantastic, but I’ll wait to see what she says about it before deciding if I’ll read it or not.


Kitchens of the Great MidwestStacie made me regret canceling my library hold on Kitchens of the Great Midwest: A NovelKitchens of the Great Midwest: A Novel by J. Ryan Stradal (I was trying to refrain from adding an absurd amount to my library stack last month). I think I need to get back on that list – her review of it makes it sound like a real winner!


Village of SecretsTuija added two titles to my TBR list this month. (Actually, she added more, but I’m not counting the multiple books by the one author). All my restraint with Katie and Tanya’s posts, and then I could resist no longer.

Caroline Moorehead’s history books sound fascinating. I’ve already borrowed A Train in WinterA Train in Winter: An Extraordinary Story of Women, Friendship, and Resistance in Occupied France by Caroline Moorehead from the library (you’ll see it on next month’s post) as Village of Secrets: Defying the Nazis in Vichy France (The Resistance Trilogy)Village of Secrets: Defying the Nazis in Vichy France (The Resistance Trilogy) by Caroline Moorehead had a waiting list. Love reading about that historical era!

A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great WarA Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War: How J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis Rediscovered Faith, Friendship, and Heroism in the Cataclysm of 1914-1918 by Joseph Locont is another one I want to look at – so it’ll be another library book for me.
