Stacked (4): The One Where I Get Historical On You

Welcome back to another week in Stacked, a place where I share what I've bought, borrowed and received during the week. By the time you read this post, I will be hanging out with my family up near San Francisco. My sister in law is having a baby next month and her baby show is this weekend. So you might see some non-related book pics when I get back. 

This week is filled with historical reads of all kinds. from World War II to Little Women to Tang Dynasty China, I am all about the historical. Clicking on the book titles will take you to their Goodreads page.  Let's get down to it, shall we?


Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal - The sequel to this book came out recently and the cover is soooo pretty. I decided to pick up the first book to see what it's all about.

A Woman in Berlin by Anonymous - This month's book club book. This one looks pretty traumatic and, while I think it's going to be good, I am kind of dreading it.

Little Women and Me by Lauren Baratz-Logsted - I just realized that this book has less than stellar reviews on GR. Oh well - I am a fan of Little Women so it'll be interesting to see what this update has to offer.

It Happened One Autumn (Wallflowers #3) (ebook) by Lisa Kleypas - You know can't resist Kleypas. I just read the third book in this series and am now jumping back to #2.

The Lady's Scandalous Night (ebook) by Jeannie Lin - I was eavesdropping on Twitter when some people I follow were talking about some great historical romances set in China. Immediately went to Overdrive to see what was available and got this one.

Captive In The Dark by CJ Roberts - My friend K just finished this erotica novel and told me I HAD to read it. Subject matter looks intense but I think it'll be good. 

Bought (Kindle)

Butterfly Swords and The Dragon and the Pearl by Jeannie Lin - More historical romance! My library Overdrive had these on waitlist but I am impatient and these are both not very much money on Kindle so I just bought them. This is a series and I think the covers are so pretty.

So that's my mostly historical haul this week. Do you have any favorite historical (romance or otherwise) books that I should read? Let me know and I'll check them out. And leave links to your haul post and I will stop by and say hi. And who is seeing Battleship this week? Don't lie - I know some of you are going. I may take my parents to see The Avengers and/or go see What To Expect When You're Expecting. It's probably terrible but I kind of want to see it. :) Have a great weekend!


  1. You really did go on a historical binge! These look awesome, especially the Jeannie Lin books. Little Women and Me looks cute too. Looking forward to hearing what you think.
    Have fun in SF!

  2. Oh hell no I am NOT watching Battleship. But Moonrise Kingdom comes out later this week <3 I hope it's good!

    Hrm, I may have to follow suit on those Jeannie Lin eBooks--I'm a sucker for cool covers! And HEY as long as it's not Something Something Grey, I'll read it ;)

  3. Great haul. I like Stacked. Cool books.

  4. Hey, I'm also a fan of Little Women and Little Women and Me by Lauren Baratz-Logsted is the first fanfic I stumble into. Too bad you said it had less than stellar review :( But I think I'll still check on it.


We love comments! They really make our day so please don't be shy and let us know what you're thinking.
