On my nightstand:
same ones from last week with one new one added!


  1. I'm just about to begin reading Graveminder and I'm SOOO excited about it. I've been wanting to read Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter for some time now so I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it! Have a great week!

  2. All your new books look good, but I'm a wee bit jealous of The Snowman. I hope you love it.

  3. Am currently reading Graveminder, but haven't read any of the others. Hope you enjoy!

  4. I had a great time reading Girl In Translation. We have some similar books. I am envious that you received The Snowman, I do want to read it in English someday. Happy reading and have a great week. My Monday:

  5. I have Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter to read and I'm so jealous of Graveminder. The Snowman looks goog, at least the cover does.

  6. Your books are drool worthy! I read Wish You Were Here this weekend and enjoyed it. I am listening to These Things Hidden (awesome).

  7. New follower!

    I've been having a bit of a Pride and Prejudice theme going the last few days with reading both the original and, now, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I haven't heard of Hamilton's book but it may end up on my TBR pile if you give it a favorable review.

  8. Ooh, I want to read GRAVEMINDER and also the Jo Nesbo book. Sigh. Too many books! Enjoy, Staci.

  9. The Snowman sounds like a plot out of Pushing Daisies.

    I finished ten books this week which actually surprises me because I hardly did any reading during my usual fun reading time. Come see what I finished.

  10. I so can't wait to hear about these!! They look GOOD! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  11. Jealous of your books this week, they do sound fun!

    Please feel free to stop by my Monday :)

  19. I hope you love These Things Hidden...I sure did! The Silver Boat is on my wish list.


  20. Silver Boat was such an enjoyable read as was Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter. Totally different feel to them but I hope you like them as much as I did. Enjoy all your other new books too, Staci. Have a great week and happy reading!

  21. Your books look great - I would have a hard time choosing which to read first! The cover of The Snowman looks especially creepy!

  22. I must read The Silver Boat. I love Luanne Rice. Crooked Letter is another one I really want to read. Happy Reading!

  23. I loved Radio Shangri-La and hope you do too. Take it at a slow pace and enjoy the trip. Looking forward to more visits with Mr. Darcy.

  24. You got lots of good books this week! I hope you'll like The Midwife's Confession as much as I did!

  25. It was a click fest for me on your list today! So many good sounding books with great covers! Graveminder looks really interesting!

  26. I still think Wickedly charming definitely looks wickedly charming! The Crooked letter looks interesting too! Have fun with your reviews!

  27. I won Radio Shangri-la, but now I need to find the time to read it!
