10 OF THE MOST RECENT (HOPEFULLY GOOD) BOOKSHELF ADDITIONS!

by 

Hey, there! It’s a new week and of course, this means that it’s a new week to talk about book things. This week we chat up some of the recent bookshelf additions. Many of these I already shared on my Dear Santa list, but so that I can include a few that are different (because I’m weird like this), I did place the “in my cart” order at a bookstore so that I could include a few different options. Because we have to have variety, right?

LIST | FACES OF A ROMANCE ADAPTATION: THE ONE ABOUT ‘PRIDE & PREJUDICE’

So, with that said, some of these are a “copy + paste” scenario because, well, sometimes you have to go the easier route. But like I say, I did add in some that I don’t technically have in my hands yet, but I did order some because I had to have a few to share with you guys outside of the Dear Santa list options. Plus I didn’t think it’d be cool to have NO books to share in a January video. If I actually film it. But anyway, let’s stay on track and share said books. Here we go!


(MOSTLY) RECENT BOOKSHELF ADDITIONS


1: THE HAWTHORNE LEGACY, JENNIFER LYNN BARNES

Haven’t read a novel by Jennifer (still), but her books always sound fun and I’ve bene hearing about Little White Lies again (that it’s really good). I haven’t read book one in this latest series so I really shouldn’t have picked up book two, but here we are.  Goodreads

2: THE BIBLE

Ordering a Bible has been a long time in the making. I finally ordered an Artisan edition that looks pretty, but also a simple softcover edition as well. Because, even with all of its prettiness, I have hopes that I’ll make the time to consistently read the Bible rather than just keep it in my bedside stack of books. It does zero good there. Goodreads

3: THE GOLD IN THESE HILLS, JOANNE BISCHOF

This is a not-as-new addition to my shelf, but I don’t think I’ve featured it overmuch? Who knows! Either way, as this is a historical novel by one of my (VERY FEW) favorite historical fiction authors, I have to make time for this – soon! Goodreads

4: TOKYO EVER AFTER, EMIKO JEAN

Love The Princess Diaries so when I see this one likened to that iconic story, I had to pick this one up. Here’s hoping it’s a fun read. Goodreads

5: STONE, RONIE KENDIG

Reading SO many (through the years) by Ronie Kendig, I didn’t realize that Kendig had a new novel coming out. Seeing this one make the round son Instagram, I decided to pick this one up. It seems different than her normal military (which are brilliant) genre. I’m curious. Goodreads

6: ALL THE RIGHT REASONS, BETHANY MANGLE (FEBRUARY)

I thought this book looked really cute and its publicist kindly emailed my about it, so as I do have a copy, it’ll be my first (because it has to be, but also I’m excited!) read of the year. Follows a girl who’s uncomplimentary rant of her father (who recently divorced her mother) snags the attention of producers for a new reality TV show. Goodreads

7: IN THE STUDY WITH THE WRENCH, DIANA PETERFREUND

These sound like such fun! Again I broke my rule in picking up the second book before I’ve read book one. Goodreads

8: THE WEDDING RINGER, KERRY REA

Sounds super fun! Follows a girl who falls into the business of playing a bridesmaid. Goodreads

9: THE LONDON HOUSE, KATHERINE REAY

At surface level, this one “feels” different than Reay’s prior novels. But this also happens to be the third book by Reay I haven’t read. Perhaps her styling has changed in that time. Either way, I look forward to reading this one, which I think is a kind of “time slip” novel. Goodreads

10: TEN RULES FOR FAKING IT, SOPHIE SULLIVAN

I’ve heard Sophie’s books are pretty good, and so I wanted to pick one (or two) up and give them a chance. Have you read any of her novels? Goodreads

  1. Great list! I’ve got Tokyo Ever After on my TBR and I’m looking forward to reading it. The Wedding Ringer also looks super cute and I’ll have to check out what it’s about! 😃 I hope you enjoy all these books!

    1. Doesn’t it?! I’m here for all the good rom-coms and hope I can find some books if not film (I miss the GOOD feeling romcoms of the 90s). And thanks – me too! Hope we both enjoy Tokyo Ever After. :)

    1. Right? I think so too! It did come since I posted this, but I haven’t opened it yet because I usually film my book hauls. Hope it’s as pretty as it looks!

    1. YAY! Hope we both enjoy those you too are interested in, Lindsey. Sophie’s sound like lots of fun! Happy reading and as always, thanks for the visit. :)

    1. Thanks, me too, Cindy! I received the Bible, but haven’t opened it because I haven’t filmed my book haul yet. Hoping it’s as pretty as it looks. YAY hope we both enjoy Katherine’s book and Joanne and Ronie write amazing fiction. :) Appreciate your visit, Cindy. As always.

    1. All good to know, Leslie – and thanks for sharing your thoughts on Jennifer’s book and “Tokyo Ever After.” I think both sound really fun albeit for different reasons. :) Thanks for the visit.

  2. On your recommendation, I am moving Joanne Bischof’s book from my wishlist to my CBD cart. Also might move Katherine Reay’s!

    1. Hope you enjoy, Joanne’s, Paula. Those I’ve read by her are always fabulous reads and I hope this one is no different. Happy reading and happy shopping too! :)

    1. Totally understand the waiting-on-reviews mindset. I try to do that sometimes to but since the publisher kindly sent me a copy, I’m excited to read it. Hopefully this one will be a great read. Happy reading to you, Dedra – and I hope those reviews reveal a good possible new read for you. :)
