New on the Stack in November 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.New on the Stack button

After last month‘s RIDICULOUS book haul, I was pretty proud of myself for my restraint in November. Nine books, and five of them are YA. One is just a reference to flip through a bit, and the other is a Bible Study. If it weren’t for that gigantic novel I’d be feeling pretty confident about my ability to get through them all in December. 😉
