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?
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. Amazon | 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. Amazon | 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! Amazon | Goodreads
4: TOKYO EVER AFTER, EMIKO JEAN
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.

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. Amazon | Goodreads
7: IN THE STUDY WITH THE WRENCH, DIANA PETERFREUND
8: THE WEDDING RINGER, KERRY REA
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. Amazon | Goodreads
10: TEN RULES FOR FAKING IT, SOPHIE SULLIVAN
