Stacking the Shelves- 11/11/17

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality all about sharing the books we are adding to our shelves, whether physical or virtual.

Another week, another ARC haul…

Sugar Money by Jane Harris

I loved Harris’ previous novel Gillespie and I, and thought it was worth checking out her latest. Sugar Money is set in the West Indies during the mid-eighteenth century, and is about two enslaved brothers who are instructed by their master to return 42 fellow slaves to the island of Grenada. This is supposedly equal parts fun adventure story about brotherhood, and emotionally compelling story of the horrors of colonialism. It’s also based (at least in part) on a true events.

The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer

This is a novel about feminism, female friendship, mentorship, and how to navigate life as a woman in the modern world. I’ve never read anything by Meg Wolitzer, so hopefully this will be a good place to start.

The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

In 1969, four siblings have their fortunes read by a psychic who relates to them the date of their own deaths. The rest of the novel explores the ways in which this knowledge affects and alters their lives. I can’t wait to read this exploration of fate, mortality, and family. Also, how stunning is this cover design?!
