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 a physical store or online, books you borrow from a friend or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

I currently have two physical arc’s sitting on my shelf waiting to be read.  Stella Bain by Anita Shreve (coming out on November 12th) and Perfect by Rachel Joyce (released on July 4th)

I’ve also received the first 100 pages of The Unbound by Victoria Schwab for my ereader.  I am super excited and a little worried about reading this.  The expected publication date is January 14th, 2014 and that is a long time to wait after reading the first 100 pages of goodness.  I’ll probably read it anyways because I’m bad at waiting.  It is available for anyone to download here.

I didn’t buy any books this week (yay me!).  I went to the library for more W. Somerset Maugham and ended up grabbing some other stuff as well.  I picked up Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward since the blurb sounded interesting and I’ve been trying to pick up more books with the little Mississippi sticker on it.  My original thought was to learn more about my new home that I’m trying hard to love.  I suspect that my subconscious doesn’t want this to happen since I keep choosing books about racism, poverty, and drug/alcohol addictions.  LOL

Let me know if you have read any of these and what you thought.  And definitely let me know if you know of a more cheerful or uplifting novel set in Mississippi.  Go ahead … I dare you to think of one.
