Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book bloggers share their weekly book haul.

I had some money to burn, so I took a trip to Barnes & Noble. It had been so long since I had been in there that I was stunned by all of the books I have yet to read.

It was hard to narrow down my selection, but ultimately I am happy with my purchases.

What books are you guys reading this week?

No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale

Expected Publication: January 7, 2014

Summary from Goodreads: NoOneElse 

Small towns are nothing if not friendly. Friendship, Wisconsin (population: 688) is no different. Around here, everyone wears a smile. And no one ever locks their doors. Until, that is, high school sweetheart Ruth Fried is found murdered. Strung up like a scarecrow in the middle of a cornfield. 

Unfortunately, Friendship’s police are more adept at looking for lost pets than catching killers. So Ruth’s best friend, Kippy Bushman, armed with only her tenacious Midwestern spirit and Ruth’s secret diary (which Ruth’s mother had asked her to read in order to redact any, you know, sex parts), sets out to find the murderer. But in a quiet town like Friendship—where no one is a suspect—anyone could be the killer.

Doesn’t that cover have you in stitches? I think that cover is so funny, and it makes me feel like this book will be full of witty, dry humor. Reading about murders in small towns just seems like an excellent winter read, doesn’t it?

What do you think of this cover? What books are you waiting to read?
