My Current Book Stack


Every year I ask for books or Amazon cards for my birthday so I can stock up on books. I love to read and I can't imagine a life without books in every room of the house. 

I also participate in Goodreads Reading Challenge every year and I'm on track to meeting my goal before the end of December.

The stack you see here will carry me well into 2023 and I've got about 4 more coming in the mail this week. 

So here's a quick synopsis of my stack, starting from the bottom up:

Atomic Habits - this book has been around for awhile, but my son recommended it after listening to the audio version, so I thought I'd give it a try.

The God of The Way and The Jesus I Know - both Kathie Lee Gifford books and I just find her to be so inspiring in her faith.  She's a faithful Bible scholar and doesn't let religion taint her devotion to walking with God. My kind of lady.

The London House - I think this was recommended to me on Amazon or Goodreads, as were several others in the stack. Every month I get recommendations based off my reading history. I've been reading a lot of historical fiction this year. 

This is Happiness - I bought this one after listening to one of my favorite podcasts (The Stories Between Us). This often happens to me when listening to my favorites. I'll end up buying a book they reference in their episodes. 

The Wife Before - Just a good mystery, which is one of my favorite genres.

The Paris Seamstress - Again, historical fiction and it was displayed at Barnes and Noble, so I bought it.

The Paper Girl of Paris - Apparently I'm on a Paris theme lately.

A Thousand Tomorrows - This is a review book I was given this month, by Hachette Books. I've been reviewing books for them, for many years. But who doesn't want one more Karen Kingsbury book, right?

The Family Across the Street - Recommended when I bought my other mystery novels. Bought it.

100 Ways to Declutter Your Home - (this is the thin white book spine with no title, 2nd from the top) - Fiona Ferris is one of my writing mentors and she writes these delightful little books that are so inspiring, on all different topics. You can find all of her titles on Amazon, but I will link to her blog HERE where you can see all the titles for yourself.

Not a Happy Family - Shari Lapena quickly became one of my favorite mystery authors a few years ago, when I found her first novel in a little independent book store, while on vacation. I buy all of her books, no questions asked. This is my current read. 

As I said, I have a few more books coming that will take me well into next year. I used to set my goal at 2 books a month, but that has become a challenge the past few years, so I've tried to be a little more realistic and set my goal at 20, which I'll probably stick with for 2023. 

I will put my Goodreads page on the sidebar. If you're a Goodreads member, I would love to connect on there! Just follow me and I'll be sure to follow you back. 

Well, that's the book stack! Do you have a book stack? What kind of books do you read? I would love to hear from you😀 Leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite genre is. 

Until Next Time...



  1. I haven't read any of the books you mentioned. :)
    I participate in the good reads challenge too. I've already passed up my goal of 50 books. It's been a good year for reading!! :)

  2. Last winter I started reading Thomas Hardy classics and fell in love with his writing style, so I plan to continue with those this winter. I like to read slowly and absorb every word and line. I keep a notebook close by so I can scribble down favorite quotes as I read. You have some good titles on your list, but I am not familiar with most of them. Currently, I am reading Out of Africa which I am enjoying greatly.

    1. I haven't read any Thomas Hardy, but I'll check him out. I also jot down quotes from what I'm reading and I highlight in my books too. That's why I don't borrow or lend, because they become too personal, unless it's just fun fiction I don't plan on reading again.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! Come back soon!
