New on My Shelf (A combination of Library Loot, hosted by Claire at The Captive Reader and Marg at Reading Adventures, and Mailbox Monday, hosted in August by Jennifer D @ 5 Minutes for Books.)

I added two books to my shelf over the last two weeks:

From the last two weeks…

The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Snippet Thoughts: The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, The House of Mirth, Prodigal Summer

What are you reading and listening to? Did any new books find their way into your possession?

    I’ve heard good things about “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns)”, I need to check that one out. Happy reading!

    I will posting a review of Heat Rises soon. I had a fantastic week of reading so it’s really difficult to pick a favorite book. I’m going to have go with a fan girl response and say the best (out of an extremely good set of books) was The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente. Please come and see what else I’m reading.

    I picked up a copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower in my dorm’s laundry room freshman year of college. When I was done with it, I left it there for someone else to find. I did’t love it, but I know a lot of people who identify with it strongly. Happy Reading!

    I was intrigued by The Good Girls Revolt when I heard about it a while ago. I’m excited to read it in the next few months. Thanks for reminding me about that one!

    Perks Of Being a Wallflower and Burn For Burn are both my ‘to read’ list and my sister just loaned me The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox so looking forward to that. Lots of good books for you this week, here’s What I’ve Been Reading!

    I really want to read The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Did you know they’re making a movie version?

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower sounds interesting. Your review on The Light Between the Oceans was very good. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

    I hope you liked Perks. I did when I read it. Not sure I’m going to want to see the movie though.

    I have been wanting to read The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox as I’ve heard such great things about it.

    I love how you’ve combined the two new book memes into “New on My Shelf”! What a great idea.
