Seeing the new additions to fellow bookworm’s shelves is, I suspect something we all enjoy. There’s something about the anticipation of a new release that makes a pretty cover design “pop” all the more. Or the surprise of discovering something we didn’t now existed sitting on a store’s bookshelf, which we, of course, promptly bring home. Needless to say, the idea of talking about exciting new to shelf additions is a topic that seems none too shabby.
BOOK REVIEW | ‘The Map From Here to There’ is a Really Good Novel
I’ll confess most of my ‘ten new to shelf additions’ will be from last month’s (December) book haul since I have as yet to film January’s, but what can I say? A blogger has to keep some things a bit of a mystery… and I do throw on a couple that I didn’t share (but will) in the eventual aforementioned published book haul.
Let’s have a look.
TEN OF THE MOST EXCITING NEW TO SHELF ADDITIONS

1: Suitors and Sabotage by Cindy Anstey
2: Virgin River by Robin Carr
I binged Netflix’s Virgin River like nobody’s business, and let me tell you, I LOVED IT. (BRING ON THAT SECOND SEASON.) Will I ever read the book? Who knows (I’m terrible about reading something post-adaptation), but I did pick it up. Amazon | Goodreads
3: The Dating Charade by Melissa Ferguson
A good romantic-comedy is forever my jam, and this one sounds lovely; almost like the era of 30s era zany rom-coms (with persons a touch of Yours, Mine and Ours), which so many love. Amazon | Goodreads
4: Together Forever by Jody Hedlund
If you like historical novels centered on historical events (in this case, the era of orphan trains), no one does them better than Jody Hedlund. Her books are heartfelt and lovely, and so I’m glad my aunt gifted me this one for Christmas. Amazon | Goodreads
5: Meg & Jo by Virgina Kantra
A contemporary re-telling of Little Women… not sure if I will like this one (because some of the things contemporary writer’s seem to want to say or change about these character ISN’T my thing), but I’d like to give this one a fair shot. Have you read it? Amazon | Goodreads
6: A Girl’s Guide to the Outback by Jessica Kate
7: Call it What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer
8: A Match Made in Mehendi by Nandini Bajpai
9: The Lost art of Reverie by Rae Walsh
I really haven’t a clue what motivated me to pick up this indie published novel, but I’m pretty sure I was influenced by someone’s book list that included this one. That or I was swayed by its pretty cover, which we know is 100% a possibility. Amazon | Goodreads
