Stacking the Shelves!

I always forget to do these, but I’m going to try and be better about this and do them every week or two because Stacking the Shelves is a great meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  So for the remainder of August I’m going to be optimistic and hope that these get finished before the dreaded return to school. (Reality of return hasn’t quite hit yet. After a 4 year break, school is bit hard to fathom. Full-time online grad school and full time public library work…should be interesting!) Anywho, here are the three books and a short story I hope to start and finish in the next two weeks:

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (Library book)

I just really want to read this one.  I feel it will be a really fast-paced read from all the awesome reviews I’ve read.  Plus everyone keeps telling me to read it…so I will : )

The StorytellerThe Storyteller by Jodi Picoult (Library book)

I didn’t like the only other book I read which was “kind of” written by Picoult; Between the Lines, but this one sounds fantastic (but hey, so did that one). It’s about an ex-Nazi and a Holocaust survivor and I’m a sucker for WWII fiction, so we will see… I had to move this to the top of my list because I had been on hold for it since February..and there are still 45 holds on the book, so no renewals for this librarian. (Plus I really want the top that girl is wearing on the cover!)

The Lonely Tree by Yael Politis (received from publisher)The Lonely Tree

This sounds like a great historical fiction read.  Click here to read a summary.

The Son of SobekThe Son of Sobek by Rick Riordan (Amazon eBook)

I hadn’t realized this had been released…two months ago until I saw a review on Escaping Reality-One Book at a Time’s blog! So I immediately purchased it and will devour it as soon as I find the charger for my tablet…

      I just finished it…and I was pleasantly surprised 🙂 I found it to be captivating and interesting even if it didn’t have the most believable circumstances. Have you read it? I’ll have a review up at some point…
