Stacking the Shelves (36)

This week I am sharing a book I received for review and one that I bought.  If you want to learn more about these books, click the title and it will take you to the Goodreads page.

For Review:

Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel-- thanks to NetGalley and Macmillan

Bought:

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon 
I bought this one before I realized that it was going to be made into a TV show on STARZ this summer. So exciting!

So what do you guys think? Have you read any of these books? Let me know! This new meme is hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews.

  1. I haven't read either of these, but the description of Outlander definitely sounds like it will make for a great TV show. I hope you enjoy your books.

    1. I am currently reading Outlander and enjoying it, but I love historical fiction and am a HUGE fan of time travel….so it's right up my alley. The TV show looks like it's going to be great! Thanks for stopping by, Juju!

  10. I really want to watch the Outlander TV show but I don't have cable. I will definitely be checking out the first episode if Starz makes it available online like they usually do. The trailer looks really good. I loved the book when I first read it though I know it isn't for everyone. I am glad you are enjoying it. It reminds me of Philippa Gregory a little bit.

    Second Star looks really interesting too. I look forward to your review!

    1. The trailer is on STARZ's website now and it looks really promising. I just finished the book last night and really enjoyed it; however, I could see why so many people don't like it. It did reminded me a bit of Gregory whom I LOVE and a bit of Game of Thrones. Thanks for visiting, Christina!
