Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga @ Tynga’s Reviews.

For Stacking the Shelves, I take the opportunity to share what books I’ve bought, won or received for review. Click on the book cover to go to Goodreads and find out more information.

This week I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Aussie author, Kerry Letheby. It’s a lovely acknowledgement of my blog, thank you Kerry.

Review:  With my wedding and honeymoon coming up in a couple of weeks I had to self-impose a rule that I would accept no new review copies of books other than those I’d already committed to, which has markedly decreased over the past three months. However, when I have books like this one turn up unexpectedly, how can I administer any form of self-control?!

I mean, hello Aussie rural fiction is one of my favourite genres. How can I say no to this book? Well, obviously I can’t say no so I will likely read this one and review it but it won’t be anywhere near the release date of April 24th which is just over a week away.

Redstone Station

Anna Day is happy to be returning home to Redstone Station after two years at Agriculture College. During various placements at farms and stations during her time at college she was shocked at the second-class status of women workers, whereas her grandfather, Sam, who owns Redstone, has always treated her as an equal. For his part, Sam is delighted to have his granddaughter back on board. In shaping Anna he tried to avoid the mistakes he’d made with her mother, Lara, and she has lived up to his high expectations, graduating from Ag College with flying colours. He now sees Anna as his last chance to preserve his beloved station and successfully take it into the future. Exceptionally hard-working, with great horsemanship, an instinctive understanding of animals and a natural aptitude for farming, Anna is determined to justify her grandfather’s faith in her. But will her budding regard for one of the stockmen throw her and the future of Redstone off track?

So, that’s it for me. What books have you added to your shelves this week?
