Eight of Our Newest Bookshelf Acquisitions

Our family reads a lot! Our bookshelves are pretty diverse with a wide-range of titles in topics such as : technical and educational books, nonfiction, historical fiction, young adult, sci-fi, romance, needlework and other arts and crafts.  I thought I’d start a blog post for some of our newest “additions to our bookshelves” in case any of these titles interest you or a member of your household.  Please note that these books were all purchased by us.  We did not receive a discount in exchange for our purchase.  In most cases, we either found the titles on our own or found them via a recommendation from another title we’ve purchased in the past.

If the book title is available on Amazon, it will be linked with an affiliate link* which will offer a referral fee should you decide to purchase the title. Rest assured the commission will go to buy new books for my daughter most likely! In some cases, the link refers to a boxed set.  That’s because we probably bought all of them and liked the entire set.  The Discovery of Witches which is part of the All Souls Trilogy has been made into a TV Series which will be coming to the US in 2019.

I love crochet pattern books, but I often find that I like only one or two of the patterns.  This was not the case with Rustic Modern Crochet.  I made several of the pieces and still marked many others to make.  It’s a great pattern book. Celtic Cable Crochet is another beautiful crochet pattern book.  I’ll admit that I bought this book because of the design on the front cover.  It’s not finished yet and using a lot of yarn, but it is lovely.

I tend to like to work quickly when I crochet and like instant gratification.  I don’t like repeating the same stitch row by row, or round by round.  That’s probably why I wrote my “quick and easy” pattern book for the Lace Crochet Covered Ornaments.  I like that they are fast and easy, have short repetition and have somewhat instant gratification. I didn’t include my title below, but it IS one of our newest additions to the bookshelf. 😀
