Stacking the Shelves....September 7, 2014

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts…

For Review.........

Thank you, NetGalley, for the three books I received this week.

What Burns Away by Melissa Falcon Field.....Good wife, good mother. That's all Claire Spruce is trying to be, but the never-ending snow in this new town and her workaholic husband are making her crazy. Even the sweet face of her toddler son can't pull her out of the dark places in her head.
Feeling overwhelmed and alone, she reconnects with her long-lost high school boyfriend, Dean, who offers an intoxicating, reckless escape. But Dean's reappearance is not a coincidence. He wants something from Claire-and she soon finds that the cost of repaying an old favor may lead to the destruction of her entire life.
What Burns Away is a story of loyalty, family, and the consequences of the past's inevitable collision with our future.
Looking forward to this one, it looks like it will be a really emotional read - I'll save the new Shopaholic as my cleansing book afterwards.

The Girl in the Empty Dress by Lise McClendon....The five Bennett Sisters are tramping along the backroads of France, enjoying the sunshine and wine, when they discover an injured dog and their idyllic summer vacation takes a dark turn. Truffles, romance, secrets, and intrigue in the heart of France.
Working on this now.  Yes, I said working, because I feel like I'm slugging through it.  The author has good reviews on Goodreads, so I'm hoping she pulls a rabbit out of her hat, otherwise, I've wasted precious time on a book that I still don't care about 48% through it.  Blah.

People I Want to Punch in the Throat by Jenn Mann....I've read it, loved it and reviewed it.  Go buy this book on Tuesday.


  1. I just saw my local library is having the author of People I Want to Punch in the Throat speak this week. Guess she is from my town.

  2. People I Want to Punch in the Throat sounds hilarious.
