Stacking the Shelves (45)


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, and is a fun way to share your book haul with other readers and bloggers! This is my last Stacking the Shelves of 2013, how sad! I usually only do a book haul post once every two weeks, so anything I get from now until the end of the year will show up on my first Stacking the Shelves of 2014.

I (supposedly) won a copy of Starter House from Library Thing, but it hasn’t shown up yet. I hope I get it, because I’m super excited to dive into that one. It’s been a month since I got the email telling me I’d won a copy, so I’m hoping the holidays are slowing things down, and it will arrive any day! Meanwhile, I only received two e-ARCs, but I’m very excited about both of them:

The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman. Release date: February 18 2014 (Scribner). Alice Hoffman was one of my favorite authors before I started blogging. Up to that point, I had read all of her books, and she’s written a lot, over twenty-five or so. But blogging changed my reading habits, and so I’ll admit I haven’t read anything new of Hoffman’s since July 2011. Luckily, the publisher (via Edelweiss) approved me for her newest title, yay! If you love magic realism, beautiful prose and stories that twist and turn, you’ll love Alice Hoffman. Remember the movie Practical Magic with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman? That’s based on Hoffman’s book.

She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick. Release date: April 22 2014 (Roaring Brook Press). I’m still trying to find time to read Midwinterblood (and I will!), so I was excited to see this book on NetGalley. Thank you Roaring Brook Press! This story doesn’t seem to have any fantastical elements in it, like Sedgwick’s other books, but who knows?

That’s it for me! I’d love to hear what’s on your shelves this week!

  1. I’m proud of you for only having two on your list. I need to start cutting way back or I’m going to be reading till I’m 80. The Hoffman book looks INCREDIBLE though, so *maybe* just one more 😉

    Thanks for stopping by my STS.

  2. Both your new books look excellent. I’m eager to dive into the two Marcus Sedgwick books as well. I feel like I’ve read Alice Hoffman, but it’s been awhile. Museum looks good! Happy reading, Tammy 🙂

  3. I hadn’t heard of the first one, but I’m interested in She Is Not Invisible! I saw it on NetGalley, but I can’t decide if I really want to read it that badly (since I already have a bajillion review books to get through). We’ll see! I hope YOU read and enjoy it – and all of your books! Have a great holiday, Tammy 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  4. Oh my gosh really! That is one of my FAVORITE movies! My sister and I still watch it constantly – we think we ARE those sisters. I heard the book is vastly different of course

  5. I’m hearing great things so far about She is Not Invisible, which is no surprise as most bloggers I know love Sedgewick. This will be my first of his books and I am really looking forward to seeing what the fuss is all about!
