Stacking the Shelves: February

Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading RealityStacking the Shelves is a regular feature where I share everything I’ve added to my TBR list in the past month. Each month I look at the books I’ve discovered and tell you what they’re about, where I found them, why I want to read them, what their shelf status is, how high of a priority they are, and finally what my rating prediction is.

Only a few new books on my TBR in February, and they’re all low priority as I’m not desperate to read any of them and I’m working on getting through those I own already.

Theft by Luke Brown

What: A literary journalist finds his sister missing after they argue about their inheritance, and is granted an exclusive rare interview with a cult author, drawing him in to her unusual family.
Where: Susan wrote a great review of this, singing its praises.
Why: I think this could go either way with me, but I’m interested enough to give it a shot.
Status: To buy.
Priority: Low.
Prediction: 3 stars.

Daughter from the Dark by Marina and Sergey Dyachenko

What: When a DJ rescues a young girl, he doesn’t expect to be stuck with her indefinitely at the mercy of her montrous teddy bear.
Where: Rachel at pacemorelibri give this a five star review.
Why: This sounds utterly bizarre and has me very intrigued.
Status: To buy.
Priority: Low.
Prediction: 4 stars.

Bel Canto by Ann Patchett

What: A famous opera singer is invited to perform at an exclusive party for the elite in South America, but when terrorists raid the party they find that their target, the President, isn’t in attendance.
Where: I’ve seen a few people follow up their reads of The Dutch House with more Ann Patchett, and Bel Canto seems the most popular.
Why: I adored The Dutch House and I loved Patchett’s writing style so I have high hopes for this one.
Status: To buy.
Priority: Low.
Prediction: 5 stars.

Do you have any of these on your TBR?
Or have you read any already?

  1. Daughter From the Dark looks so good! And I’m really hoping to read Bel Canto before the vote for the “best” of the women’s prize winners, as that’s one of the titles on the list.
