Stacking The Shelves #2

Round 2 of Stacking the Shelves!

Same as last week, I’m rating the books I receive 1-5.
1 meaning there’s very little chance I’ll ever actually get around to reading this book.
5 meaning unless something else arrives that I HAVE to read, this near the top of the list and there’s a likely chance that you’ll see a review of said book from me at some point.

Lost In You by Jules Bennett (The Monroes #3) – 2
A romance novel. Nothing in the blurb really jumps out and calls to me, so I may read it, or I may not…

The Cajun Doctor by Sandra Hill – 5
Okay, the publisher actually sent me TWO copies of this one now! I feel extra obligated to read it now. (I gave it a 3 last time.) I’ll probably give away at least one, if not both, copies of this book when I eventually do read and review it.

Consciousness Archaeology by Maximus Freeman – 4
I rate this one so high because it’s only 100 pages. It’s tiny. I’m not sure if I’ll actually be able to FINISH the book, but I’ll try! It might actually one my dad might enjoy, so I’ll likely pass it along to him when I’m done.

Adult-ish by Cristina Vanko – 5
This is actually more of a journal style book. Being that I’ve been an adult for… a while… I’ll probably skim through this book without filling it out, then pass it along as a graduation gift for someone at some point in time.

Ascension by Hannah Rials – 4
Vampires? Check. Witches? Check. YA? Check.
Yeah, this one is right up my alley. I’ll most likely read this.

Trophy Son by Douglas Brunt – 3
I’m not overly excited for this one, but at the same time, I tend to enjoy books from St. Martin’s Press and I like the idea behind this book – parents pushing their children to succeed no matter what. I might get around to this one.

The Little French Bistro by Nina George – 3
This sounds literary and chic-litish, so I’m not so sure on this one. I do love Europe though, but I’m not really sure if I enjoy READING about Europe.

The Ambassador’s Daughter by Harvey J. Williams – 4
I know literally nothing about Apartheid and South Africa, so this is one that I’m intrigued by. The reviews on Goodreads have me hesitant, but it’s not a very big book, so I probably will read it at some point.

The Three Little Pigs by Katelyn Sinclair – 5
This is a children’s picture book of the classic fairy tale. I’m sure I’ll read this with my daughters at some point.

The Red Wraith by Nick Wisseman – 2
The blurb for this book sounds really confusing. It could be that I’ll love it, or it’ll all be over my head. Not at the top of my pile.

Searching for Home by Ann Gaylia O’Barr – 3
This could be awesome… or boring. Nothing really jumps out at me from the cover or the blurb, so I’m not sure if I’ll read it.

The Last Savannah by Mike Bond – 4
The cover on this one is GORGEOUS. And I love the African Savannah. I’ve read iffy reviews, but I’m willing to give this one a shot.

Out of Australia by Steven Strong – 4
Hands down, my favorite class in college was an Anthropology elective I took. It was hard work, lots of reading and studying, a lot went over my head, but I was fascinated. I’m interested to read this alternative case for Homo Sapians coming out of Australia, vs the overall accepted out of Africa theory.

Born Both: An Intersex Life by Hida Viloria – 5
A memoir. The author was born with both sex organs and raised as a girl. I’m very interested to read about the authors life, which is a very unique one.

A Single Spy by William Christie – 4
Nazi’s…WWII… Russia… All things I know little about. I’m interested to see if this one captures my interest.



Living in Italy: The Real Deal by Stef Smulders – 5
A comedic memoir of a couple trying to move to Italy. I’ve always been fascinated with Italy and am proud to say I’m 1/4 Italian, but I don’t know much about living there!
