The Stack - February 2016

The library haul is somewhat more robust this month.  Mostly due to the hefty 832 pages of A Little Life.  We'll see if I get to it in February.  It scares me for several reasons.  I know so many people who LOVED it, and as many who gave up after giving it a good 100 pages.  We'll see...

Currently I'm reading A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, and plan to read my library ebook of Fates and Furies next.  A Girl is a Half Formed Thing was an impulse 'paperback picks' choice, so I have at least 2 guaranteed renews and 3 months in which to read it (I'm down to two months on Orphan Train).  

Lastly, I'm waffling on whether to read Between the World and Me or get the audiobook version, as I hear that it's an excellent listen.  Either way, I'm reading it this month or early next!  I also have a few new ebooks at the ready:

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld (NetGalley ARC)
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders
The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry

As well as the ones I've had ready for awhile:

Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave (NetGalley ARC)
The Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll
Happy Again by Jennifer E. Smith
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Seveneves by Neal Stephenson
Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson
Brooklyn by Colm Toibin
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown

As always, I'm very much open to suggestions on this list or otherwise!


  1. Highly recommend the audiobook of Coates. Haven't read the paper version though.
