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!
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
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!
