Throwback Thursday (106)

I found this picture of Trinity College Library, and thought it would work for this meme with a little play with lighting and adding the words.


Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;
Looking Forward To...
But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves.

Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start? Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

Okay, don't yell at me.  I know I need to get into this series.  So many of you have read it and it sounds amazing.  I got this one when I went to New York Comic Con.

Goodreads Synopsis:
The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.







I've heard back from a few bloggers that they would like to join in this meme post, so I'm adding a Linky for you to join in.  Grab the picture above, and join in.  All I ask, is if you can acknowledge my blog in the post so others know where to come back to and join as well.  Thank you.

Oh I just recommended that one to my mother who was looking for a good book to read! :) I haven't continued with the series after this one and I really need to do so!

This is one book that's been sitting on my shelf, too. :) I've heard such great things but I just haven't been in the mood to pick it up. Can't wait to hear what you think of it.

I can't help it, but this book always reminds me of the totally unrelated movie Outlander which was really bad.

You are going to die once you read this book. It is one of the best books I have EVER read. It's a bit slow in the beginning but by page 50, you will be obsessed with every word.
