Filling the Shelf – 54

Filling the Shelf is basically Mailbox Monday (this month hosted by Diary of an Eccentric) or In my Mailbox (created by The Story Siren ), but with a title that suits my blog 😀 If you’re interested in joining the fun or seeing what other bloggers added to their shelves, I invite you to visit those two awesome features!

Happy Monday all!

A smaller mailbox this week – not a bad thing!

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss : I have been wanting to read this one for a while; when I asked for book recommendations last week, this one was greatly recommended, so I thought it was time. I’m planning on reading it soon, probably this week!

The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker : If I say “post-apocalypse” and “zombies”, then you already know why this one landed in my home. Looking forward to reading this one!

What did you add to your shelves recently? Have you read one of these two books?

    Post apocalyptic – that’s where I would run screaming in the opposite direction. Hope you enjoy them.

    I enjoyed The History of Love, it wasn’t as good as I was expecting though. Enjoy your new books!

    The Other Life is one that I really, really want to read, as is The History of Love. Great new additions to your shelf. I hope that you enjoy them!

    I read The History of Love because so many people loved it, but I just didn’t get it… I hope you have better luck with it!

    I listened to The History of Love when it was first released and liked it, but didn’t love it. Some of my coworkers raved about it though.

    Ah! I’m so pleased that you got A History of Love. It’s not a perfect book but it’s so poignant and the prose is so beautiful – the sincerity of it comes across loud and clear. Maybe it’s just me but I love books that retain the same magic after the first time you’ve read it.

    I’ve had my eye on The History of Love, so I’m looking forward to your thoughts. Happy reading!
