Dusty Reads (1)

~This is a weekly meme created by Xpressoreads that showcases books that have been sitting on your shelf for a while and is a little dusty...~

I thought this was a cute idea and I have a few dusty books that I should really read, but I've been lacking the ambition to actually begin. I know I usually do the 'Top Ten Tuesday' posts on Tuesdays, but I thought this would be a cute alternative to when I feel like skipping out on the other the TTT (which I have been skipping the last couple of weeks, my apologizes). 

To start off this new weekly meme (well, new for me) is Spring Moon by Bette Bao Lord: 

"At a time of mystery and cruelty ... in an ancient land of breathtaking beauty and exotic surprise ... a courageous woman triumphs over her world's ultimate tragedy.
Behind the garden walls of the House of Chang, pampered daughter Spring Moon is born into luxury and privilege. But the tempests of change sweep her into a new world — one of hardship, turmoil, and heartbreak, one that threatens to destroy her husband, her family, and her darkest secret love. Through a tumultuous lifetime, Spring Moon must cling to her honor, to the memory of a time gone by, and to a destiny, foretold at her birth, that has yet to be fulfilled."

Okay. This has been sitting on my shelf for about one year, almost two. Just reading the summary makes me excited to read this, but every time I near my shelf, I pick up something else. Have any of you read this? What do you think?

I haven't read this but I do love reading about Women overcoming diversity so it sounds interesting to me. I found you from Beck Valley Book Hop and glad I did.

I haven't read this one, but it does look good. I have so many books on my shelf I haven't read yet. I need to just say no to new ones and read those!
