Stacking the Shelves (129)

Book Review: The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis
Can't Wait Wednesday: Band of Sisters 
Audio Book Review: Elizabeth the Queen: Life of a Modern Monarch by Sally Bedell Smith

I'll be sharing my thoughts on Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner, which felt like two different books at times. The plot twist took me by surprise! I  am also sharing my thoughts on On Ocean Boulevard by Mary Alice Monroe, which I really enjoyed. I appreciate Monroe's descriptions of nature and the coastal setting.  I think both are decent beach reads, so more on them this coming week!

Chance of a Lifetime by Jude Devereux and Tara Sheets - Thanks to Mira and NetGalley

  1. I keep hearing about this big twist in Big Summer - I don't think I'll read the book, but I kind of want to go looking for spoiler-y reviews so I can find out what it is!

    1. I somehow missed it and it really took my by surprise. Definitely switched up the genres for sure! Thanks for visiting, Angela!

  2. I haven't read any of these books. But that is why I enjoy the Sunday post so much it gets me to broaden my horizons, not that I need to expand my tbr. lol

    Anne - Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post   

    1. I hear you! I feel the same way. Thanks for visiting, Anne!

  3. I’m not familiar with any of those..they I do have Tbe Exiles on my review schedule which your sidebar says you are currently reading.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  4. Jennifer Weiner was one of my favorites in my 20s. I have to admit that I own her latest few (along with her oldies) but haven't read any of them, including this latest. Slingshot looks adorable. Happy reading!

    1. I hear you. I haven't read her latest novels, but wanted to give her a try again. Big Summer was a decent read, but not amazing. Thanks for visiting, Natalie!

  5. I didn't know Anna Godbersen still writes. I think I read her Luxe series waaaay back then and kind of like it? (I can't remember much now). The Invisible Woman looks interesting. I might have to check that out.
    Hope you enjoy your new books! Happy reading! :)

  6. These are all new to me! There's so many great books coming out.


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
