Filling the Shelf – 67
Filling the Shelf is basically Mailbox Monday or the more recent Stacking the Shelves, but with a title that suits my blog If you’re interested in joining the fun or seeing what other bloggers added to their shelves, I invite you to visit the current host!
Happy Monday everyone!
Two parts in this edition of Filling the Shelf : first, four books (two adult mysteries, two YA) recently published that arrived in the mail this week. Always exciting! And second, four fiction novels, non-YA, that I mentioned in the past weeks. I got them a couple weeks ago in an ebook sale, as they were four novels I had on my wishlist. Less than ten bucks for the four novels, I say that’s a great deal!
Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes : Girl meets perfect boy, boy has issues; trouble ensues, and years later, girl is barely recovering when a phone call changes everything… I am currently reading this thriller, and I quickly got into it. I’m curious to see where this will go.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn : A seemingly perfect couple, a wife disappearing, the husband claiming his innocence; a mystery that has come to me with high praise – if not about this precise book, it was at least about the author, whom I have never read before. I’m excited about it though.
Tokyo Heist by Diana Renn : The search for a stolen piece of art, from Seattle to Japan? I’m in!
This is not a Test by Courtney Summers : There was no way I was not going to be reading Courtney Summer’s new novel, especially when she is giving zombies a try!
The Lacemakers of Glenmara by Heather Barbieri : Ireland and lace makers: sounds charming!
Labor Day by Joyce Maynard : A coming-of-age novel of some sort; the summary says it evokes a combination of “Ian McEwan’s Atonement and Nick Hornby’s About a Boy”, which I can’t imagine, but I wanted to give it a try anyway.
Still Missing by Chevy Stevens : A story told in two times I believe; captive for a year, a woman tells the story of her abduction and of her escape.
The Ninth Wife by Amy Stolls : A woman meets her maybe-future-husband’s past eight wives. This one, I’m mostly curious to see where the author is going with this.
