Stacking the Shelves (41)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Well, I really shouldn't have received any new books this week but I saw two books on NetGalley that I had to read.  I need to slow it down on the review books but it's so hard to say no!  I also need to start saying no to any nook deals.  I can't resist books that are only $1.99!

From NetGalley:

What books did you get this week?


  1. I can't resist $1.99 books either! I LOVED THE SALES on Kindle/Nook last weekend.

    great haul!

    1. I bought several books last week when B&N had their nook books sale! I couldn't help myself. :)

  2. Wow, some interesting picks. I've read some of Jeanne Kalogridis' work, and I have a book or two from Chris Bohjalian on my shelf, so here's hoping your new reads are good reads.

    1. I haven't read anything by Bohjalian but this one sounds so interesting!

  3. I've never heard of any of these books! I like the look of the last one though, because the author has the same first name as my middle name! :D

    Hope you enjoy all of your books!

    Check out my STS post!

    1. That's cool! I think it has such a pretty cover!

Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish . This week's topic:  Top Ten Books I Recommend the Most 1.) The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons   2.) Outlander by Diana Gabaldon           If you read my blog at all, you know I love these two books so much!  I am not afraid to suggest them to anyone who I think might enjoy them. 3.) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I was definitely recommending this book left and right when the first movie came out. 4.) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green 5.) A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin           These are two books that I just recently started recommending but they are books that can appeal to anyone so they are easy picks when someone asks for a recommendation. 6.) Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead  - I get a little embarrassed when I recommend this book to people but seriously, just because it has vampires does not mean it is like Twilight. 7.) The Giver by Lois

Book Blog Hop (11)

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books .  It's a way to meet other bloggers and check out some cool new blogs. This week's question is:  "Highlight one book you have received this week that you can't wait to dig into!" Okay, I have a confession to make.  I have been so busy this week that I have not had time to get any new books.  I have several waiting for me at the library but I won't be able to pick them up until this weekend.  : ( Did you all get any exciting new books this week?  

Review and Giveaway: "Distant Signs" by Anne Richter

Synopsis: Distant Signs is an intimate portrait of two families spanning three generations amidst turbulent political change, behind and beyond the Berlin Wall. In 1960s East Germany, Margret, a professor’s daughter from the city, meets and marries Hans, from a small village in Thuringia. The couple struggle to contend with their different backgrounds, and the emotional scars they bear from childhood in the aftermath of war. As East German history gradually unravels, with collision of the personal and political, their two families’ hidden truths are quietly revealed. An exquisitely written novel with strongly etched characters that stay with you long after the book is finished and an authentic portrayal of family life behind the iron curtain based on personal experience of the author who is East German and was 16 years old at the fall of the Berlin Wall. Why do families repeat destructive patterns of behaviour across generations? Should the personal take precedence over
