Bookshelf Tour!! ~Catch-up & C~

Okay, folks. If you've been following my blog since January, then you might remember The Post In Which I Said I Was Temporarily Discontinuing The Bookshelf Tour. But that has changed. B-) If I can sort through those boxes of books to pull out stuff for book tags, I can do this. Besides, I was really enjoying the bookshelf tour and I hope y'all were as well. :) 

If you missed any of the previous posts, here's the links. :) 

First off we have some catching-up to do. :) I've got some 'A' and 'B' books since I did those posts, so I'll give those books to you now. ;) Because y'all really want to see them...right? *doesn't accept no for an accurate answer* 

Anchored: Finding Hope in the Unexpected by Kayla Aimee -- You can read my review for this book HERE
The Good Fight: How World War II was Won by Stephen Ambrose -- I read this book for school, and to be a 'children's book' it is really informational and I love it. :) 
The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character Expression by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi -- I won this book in the Love is in the Heart writing contest and I'm enjoying it very much. :) 

The Westward Christmas Brides Collection by Wanda E. Brunstetter, Susan Page Davis, Melanie Dobson, Cathy Liggett, Vickie McDonough, Olivia Newport, Janet Spaeth, Jennifer Rogers Spinola, & MaryLu Tyndall.  
America at War by Stewart Binns and Adrian Wood -- from the Barnes & Noble sale rack. :P 
G.I. Joe and Lillie by Joseph S. Bonsall -- You can see my review of this super amazing book HERE. ;) 

And, lastly, my Time-Life World War II books by Ronald H. Bailey. I love these books sooo much. I haven't read them all cover-to-cover, but they're so great for research. 
The Home Front -- I got this one last summer, but it somehow got excluded from the tour. :-/

Prisoners of War 
The Resistance

Thanks for reading, guys! 


  1. I didn't want to see your new "A" and "B" books. My answer was no. B-) Sorry, I just had to tease you about that. ;) (I enjoyed seeing your new books!
    You own Interrupted and Chasing Jupiter?! I need to get them soon and add them to my collection. They're amazing!!!
    And you have "United we Stand"! :D "V is for Victory" and "Candleshine" are the best 2 in the book. I absolutely adore them! Plus they remind me of our vacation, so there's no way they're leaving my shelf. ;)
    I've been enjoying the book tour, and I'm looking forward to the next installment!

    1. But that's just it. 'No' isn't an accurate answer. B-)
      Yes, I do!!! *jumps for joy* I got them from Thriftbooks. (Where else? XD) They're ex-library books (ya know, like ex-convicts?) but they're in great condition. :)
      I got it for Christmas but I haven't read it yet. :-/ (Are they connected? Like do I need to start at the beginning?) Oh, I love things like that! ^_^ "Dark Storms Rising", "A Memory Between Us", and "Number the Stars" all remind me of our trip. ;)

      I'm so glad you're enjoying it, Jesseca! Thanks for commenting! :-)

  2. Yay!! The bookshelf tour! :) I really like these posts. ;)
    It is so much fun to see other peoples books. Plus you might find some that look good and then you just have to read them too. ;) I really want to read "Interrupted". But out of your C books I have and have read the Kathleen books. :D

    1. I'm so glad! I really enjoy doing these posts. :)
      Yes, I love seeing others' books too. ;) And yes! Finding new books to love (like "They Called Her Mrs. Doc" XD) is always amazing-ness. ;)
      "Interrupted" is really good. I think you would enjoy it. :-) I looooove the Kathleen books. That's another series I'm going to re-read this summer... B-) (Yeah, right!)

      Thanks for commenting, Rebekah!! :)

  3. I own all the Kathleen books and love them. :)<3
    Also, I recently finished reading "Chasing Jupiter" and "Interrupted". Which of those two were your favorite?

    1. Me too. They're THE BEST!!! B-)
      I haven't read "Chasing Jupiter" yet, but it will have to be utterly amazing to top "Interrupted" as a favorite. ;)

      Thanks for commenting, Rebekah!!

  4. What fun! I love seeing other people's books :D I don't think I've read any of the ones in this post though.
    I looked back at the other book posts, and saw you American Girl book collection - do you have any of the dolls? When I was younger I was big into Kit - her tomboyish nature was my kindred spirit growing up. ^.^ So I had saved up for her, and I still have her. My elder sister loved all the AG dolls and has several, and now my younger sister is into them and has Caroline (her first!) and just this past month got MaryEllen. :)

    1. So do I!! :) It's such fun.
      Yes, I do have some of the dolls. Awww, I have Kit too! :) Along with Emily, Lanie, and Julie. :) AG was my life when I was 8-12. ;)
      Oh fun! My little cousin got MaryEllen for Christmas. She was sooo thrilled. ;)

      Thanks for commenting, Raechel! :-)

    2. Cool! It really is a fun thing, and usually, something one remembers for a long time to come!

    3. Yes, it most certainly is! :-)

  5. I keep eyeing the Interrupted in Amazon but haven't gotten around to buying it yet. Probably not until I read Deny, Resistance, and several others. Hmm, I wonder if they have it on the thrift books site... *changes tab to go check*

    1. They do! *does a happy dance* Maybe I will be reading it sooner than I thought! Let's see, if I order that and the Star Wars book I wanted...I'll get the free shipping! *changes tab again to go order*

      Thank you so much for turning me on to that sight! It is so awesome!

    2. "Interrupted" is just...ah, so amazing!! :) Deny and Resistance are both on my to-read list too!! :) Yes, they do! I got my copy from the Thriftbooks site. ;)

      Yay!!! New books! Oh yes, free shipping is THE BEST. B-) You're so welcome, Bethany!! Thanks for commenting. ;)
