Stacking the Shelves: The I have returned edition

As you might have guessed, I have returned from vacation. I was in Ghana for 10 days. I loved it and I will have a recap, with photos, in a couple of days. Being gone for 10 days, resulted in a lot of e-mails to return and ..... lots of books on my doorstep. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Cindy of  Tynga's Reviews. Given my issues with The Story Siren, I decided to participate with this meme. It's all about sharing the books that you're adding to your shelves. Here is what was waiting for me when I returned:

- The Lost Button by Irene Rozdobudko and The Time of Women by Elena Chizhova are my first foray into Ukrainian and Russian literature.

- The Gap Year by Sarah Bird is a mother-daughter story.

- Justice at Cardwell Ranch by B.J. Daniels is a suspenseful romance.

-  The Nightingale Girls by Donna Douglas is about three young trainee nurses in 1930s London.

- The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson has been on my list for a while. I'm reading this as part of a blog tour.

- The Laugterhouse by Paul Cleave and Shunning Sarah by Julie Kramer are murder mysteries!! I'm a sucker for them.

- The Sweetness of Forgetting by Kristin Harmel is about family, lost love and baking.


  1. Nice haul. Some of these books are brand spanking new to me.


  2. Me too!! I'm really looking forward to the foreign literature, they're totally outside of my comfort zone.

  3. Hope you had a good time away. It looks like you got some great book. I haven't read any of them by the Sweetness of Forgetting looks interesting.
