Stacking The Shelves [168]

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!


 Hey ya'll!  Hard to believe we're halfway through summer.  (I work in a library, so I measure "summer" as the span of Summer Reading.  In my little corner of the world, that's June 15th-August 15th this year.)  And guess what!  Today is my wonderful mom's birthday.  And Monday is my dad's!  So a shout out and happy birthday to my folks!


I give them a lot of credit in fostering my love of reading.  They are also readers, and they provided me with so many great books and library trips growing up.

And speaking of books....  It's only been two weeks since the last time I hosted Stacking the Shelves, so my stack is a little lighter this time.

Rose Society Marie Lu Wicked Awakening of Anne Merchant Joanna Wiebe

A coworker went to the American Library Association Annual Conference in San Francisco and brought back a "sneak peek" of Marie Lu's The Rose Society and The Wicked Awakening of Anne Merchant by Joanna Wiebe for me.  Can you believe I haven't read any Marie Lu yet?  And we share the same first name!

Battle Cry of Freedom James McPherson

The hubby bought Battle Cry of Freedom by James McPherson last weekend, and I know I'll end up reading it too.  The Civil War isn't really something I know much about, but I'd like to know more.  And then the hubby and I can talk about it together!

Love Ruby Lavender Deborah Wiles

Love, Ruby Lavender by Deborah Wiles is just a fun-looking little audiobook I picked up at the library last week.  Sometimes I like something a little more light-hearted in the summer months.

What about you?  What books did you bring home this past week?  Click the link (I remembered this time!) to join in the fun!

  1. It was met dad's bday yesterday. The good daughter that I am took him out to lunch on Wednesday and the bad daughter forgot to call on his actual birthday. He probably didn't notice, but I know my mom did.

  2. Happy Birthday to your folks Marie! Thank you for making me feel better! I haven't read Marie Lu either :)

  3. Battle Cry of Freedom by James McPherson looks interesting. The Civil War is probably the only war I'm interested in knowing more about.

  4. Marie your not the only one that hasn't read Marie Lu. I got 2 books signed by her and I still haven't read it :( Will definitely be getting on to that as I do want to start her new Rose Society series, or I might wait till all the books are released so I don't have to re-read.

  5. I've never read any Marie Lu books either. I hope you enjoy these. No new books for me this week, I'm catching up on my tbr shelf :)

  6. OOh nice! Curious about the Rose Society! I wasn't 100% on board with The Young Elites, but want to see where things go this time around! Happy Reading!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  8. Hadn't heard of The Rose Society before, but the blurb and cover make it look pretty cool. May have to add to my TBR list as well!

  9. LOL - I haven't read Marie Lu yet either! Must do, soon. Happy double birthday to your parents and enjoy your reads ;-)

  10. Summer has just really started here but already school supplies are out and school starts in just a month.

  11. Nice haul, Marie! Happy Birthday to your mom! I'll be saying the same thing to my beautiful bride tomorrow.
    Just remember, when summer is over, there are always Phineas and Ferb reruns to bring back that summertime feeling :)

  12. I love those light and fun reads for the summer!!

  13. Great list of books you have here. Its always great to have a good summer read!!

  14. Happy birthday to your parents! And enjoy those delicious new reads.

  15. Marie Lu is definitely on my radar, particularly this year when I'm trying to read more YA fiction. But like several commenters before me, I have not yet read any of her books. My mother-in-law has a birthday coming up next weekend, so we'll have to do something very nice for her.

  16. I'm reading The Young Elites right now. But I loved Legend by Marie Lu, can't believe you haven't read any yet. :-)
