Stacking the Shelves (47) 6.9.13





Tynga of Tynga's Reviews is starting a new meme to spotlight the books we receive each week.  
  
 
Here's what I got:
Won:  
 
The Bookman's Tale
by Charlies Lovett
 
I won this from Jen at Devourer of Books and it sounds really intriguing...thanks for the giveaway!!!


 




 
Purchased:
*** I purchased the following 5 books while attending Beach Reads 2013 at the Princeton Library this week. I was fortunate to meet all five authors (plus one other who's book I already had).


The Widow Waltz 
by Sally Koslow 

I've read one book by Sally Koslow in the past - With Friends Like These - and I enjoyed it. This newest one sounds really good.
 






A Hundred Summers 
by Beatriz Williams 

I haven't read anything by Beatriz Williams yet and am really looking forward to reading this one.

 






Pastors' Wives 
by Lisa Takeuchi Cullen 

This is a new author for me...and the book sounds really intriguing. Plus, I really enjoyed listening to Lisa at the event - she has a really interesting background and I think that will make for a good tale.

 




The Possibility of You 
by Pamela Redmond 

Another new author for me...this one just sounds very interesting.

 






The Promise of Stardust 
by Priscille Sibley 

This is the debut novel for Priscille and, while it sounds like an emotional read, I think I will really like it.




 
From a family member:
***Both these books are from my dad, another voracious reader and lucky for me that we have similar reading tastes!  
 
Whiskey Beach
by Nora Roberts
 
As much as I love Nora Roberts' series and trilogies, I also really enjoy her stand-alones. I can't wait to start this one!
The Movement of Stars
by Amy Brill
 
This is a book about the first professional female astrologist in the United States...it sounds really interesting, plus includes a love story, and who doesn't love a love story???
