Guest Post: Stacking the Shelves #1 with Lyn!

Posted December 16, 2012 by Kara in Guest Post, Lyn, Stacking the Shelves / 16 Comments

Hi! This week, I finished updating the last of my portfolio (I’m an intern in education) and I celebrated by going to the bookstore.  I always love to see everyone’s post, Stacking the Shelves, so I thought I would contribute my own contribution to my overpopulated bookshelves.
Here is the stack, on my leopard print comforter (which the cat and I fight over every night):
From the bottom up:
Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Why: I have heard some good things about Clement-Moore, so I thought this would be a good first read for this author.  The cover is stunning, and the storyline follows a red-headed Texan teen. Sound familiar? (Spoiler: I’m a red-headed Texan, but not a teen.)
Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier

Why: Ruby Red was a guilty pleasure read this year, and when I saw the sequel on the shelves, I actually squealed right in the middle of the store.  Also, the cover – love it!

Why: All of my GR friends go rabid over this book.  I thought I would give it a shot soon. And I just love that title. 
The Neverending Storyby Michael Ende

Why: I need to finish this book.  I started to read this book back in 2009, but my copy was ruined (my mother’s dog ate the book) and I just never had a chance to replace it.  When I found a hardback colored printing of the book, I instantly grabbed it and added it to my cart. The text is colored (green for the story, and red for Sebastian’s plot) and the book is big.  I don’t like to read the small paperback trade books, so this was a perfect addition to my collection.
False Memory by Dan Krokos

Why: I’m on the bandwagon – I’ve buried the hatchet and picked this one up during my run.  The storyline sounds outstanding, anyways.
The Castle in theAttic by Elizabeth Winthrop

Why: This one is a childhood favorite.  I’m going to reread it just for old time’s sake.
Nowhere Girl by A.J. Paquette

Why: The cover was beautiful, and the book weaves the culture of Thailand into the storyline. 

And that’s Lyn’s haul, everybody! There are some good ones in there. I really want to read False Memory and Nowhere Girl. I also own a copy of Texas Gothic but STILL haven’t read it. Maybe Lyn will get to it before me, hah! Leave us a comment and we will be sure to visit your posts this week. Happy reading!

  1. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (ha – I just had to say it all) was truly wonderful. I actually listened to the first one on audio but read the 2nd one. I thought the 2nd one was even better too. I hope you enjoy it!
    Happy Reading. 🙂
    My Showcase Sunday!

    All of those sound really good. The only one I hadn’t heard of is Texas Gothic, all the rest are ones that I would love to read when I get time. Enjoy all of your great books. Love the comforter too. 🙂

  3. Oh, some of those sound good. I think I will have to look into the one before Sapphire Blue and the Fairyland one. Hmm. It looks like I will be stopping in at GR before I head to bed. Great list Lyn.

    The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (I just love typing that all out! :P) has had some brilliant reviews so far, so I hope you enjoy it. I still need to get myself a copy of False Memory as it sounds fantastic to. Enjoy your new books, Lyn! 🙂

  5. Oooh, lots of pretties. I really want to read Gier’s trilogy, because those covers, and also they just sound awesome. False Memory was a lot of fun!
