Stacking the Shelves – August 21, 2016

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature all about sharing your good luck in book acquisitions! So here’s what came my way since my last post! Another great several weeks for book additions!

Friday Firsts – Ghost Talkers by Mary Robinette Kowal

Friday Firsts is a new meme that will run every Friday here on Tenacious Reader. It will feature the first few sentences/paragraph of my current book and my first impressions as well.

Review: Borderline by Mishell Baker

I was thought Borderline sounded really interesting, but I have to confess to putting it off at times because I was afraid it might be depressing, and I just wasn’t in the mood for a depressing book. When you read the synopsis, you learn the protagonist, Millie, is a double amputee survivor of a suicide attempt who also battles mental...
