Stacking the Shelves #1
Sometimes I just want to post about books I'm planning to read or have recently added to my shelves. Stacking the Shelves is perfect for that....it's a weekly meme hosted by Reading Reality. While I might not do it every week, it looks fun to do when I am wanting to share what my TBR pile is looking like. Happy Reading!
Book One in a new series.....combine Scotland, a cozy mystery, and a manor house and you make me happy! I recently posted for Can't Wait Wednesday about book two in this new series so I thought I'd start with the first one. Hoping I've found another Verity Bright-type of book.
I'm currently watching this movie (it's four hours long so I'm viewing it in chunks!) and it's on my Classics Club list to read in the next five years. May as well get started, right? I love, love, love Elizabeth Taylor and James Dean so I'm hoping the movie doesn't spoil my enjoyment of the book if the images in my head aren't aligned. Also, born, raised, and lived in Texas all my life so we will see if I like how it portrays my home :)
As spring arrives and we near summer vacation, I just go crazy for all things Caribbean. I have wanted to read this book for awhile and it was on sale at Book Bub so I bought it for my Kindle. After seeing the length (over 800 pages) and realizing not all the sections look interesting to me, I've decided to read the parts that I want to and just take my time with it. But that cover....can I move there please?
What new books have you acquired recently? Share with me because I'm always up for new things to read!
The Scottish Ladies' Detective Agency looks really good. I hope you enjoy your reading and have a great week!ReplyDelete
Thanks Yvonne! I just started it and it's really cute :)Delete
I've been busy putting together a draft of the books I've got in mind for my Read the World personal goal. There are SO many countries, so many books, so little time. But I'm up for it....giving myself a few years on that one and, like you, I'll just take my time with it. Have a terrific week.ReplyDelete

That sounds ambitious Terrie! But also a lot of fun...I many have to check that out if you are hosting it? I just love your site...it's so cute and full of great information. You can tell you put such wonderful effort into it :)Delete
Welcome to stacking the shelves :) I hope you enjoy the Caribbean...800 pages, sounds like a good idea not to read all the sections, LOL.ReplyDelete
Thanks Cindy! I am always looking for post ideas without having to just write reviews all the time. I love to read reviews but I've noticed on others' sites the non-review posts are a lot of fun as well.Delete
