Welcome to the newest weekly feature here at Bookshelf Fantasies… Shelf Control!
Shelf Control is all about the books we want to read — and already own! Consider this a variation of a Wishing & Waiting post… but looking at books already available, and in most cases, sitting right there on our shelves and e-readers.
Want to join in? See the guidelines and linky at the bottom of the post, and jump on board! Let’s take control of our shelves!
My Shelf Control pick this week is:
Title: The Hypnotist’s Love Story
Author: Liane Moriarty
Length: 480 pages
What it’s about (synopsis via Goodreads):
Ellen O’Farrell is a professional hypnotherapist who works out of the eccentric beachfront home she inherited from her grandparents. It’s a nice life, except for her tumultuous relationship history. She’s stoic about it, but at this point, Ellen wouldn’t mind a lasting one. When she meets Patrick, she’s optimistic. He’s attractive, single, employed, and best of all, he seems to like her back. Then comes that dreaded moment: He thinks they should have a talk.
Braced for the worst, Ellen is pleasantly surprised. It turns out that Patrick’s ex-girlfriend is stalking him. Ellen thinks, Actually, that’s kind of interesting. She’s dating someone worth stalking. She’s intrigued by the woman’s motives. In fact, she’d even love to meet her.
Ellen doesn’t know it, but she already has.
How I got it:
I bought it!
When I got it:
A couple of years ago, after reading The Husband’s Secret.
Why I want to read it:
After reading two amazing books by Liane Moriarty, The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies, I decided I should investigate some of her earlier books as well. While I’ve had The Hypnotist’s Love Story on my shelf for a while, I just haven’t gotten around to it. Meanwhile, the author’s newest book comes out this summer, and I can’t wait!

That sounds like a great book! I’ve added it to my TBR list. Hope you enjoy it when you read it!
Thanks! I’m looking forward to it. 🙂
This is one I’ve read. I had a few misgivings about some aspects of the book but the central idea is fascinating (and engrossing for much of the book).
Ooh, glad to hear it! I hope to make time for it soon.
I started doing Shelf Control this week ^_^
That’s great! I’d love to see what you picked — can you add your link? 🙂
This one sounds fantastic! I’m definitely going to add this to my TBR. I have a couple of the author’s books but haven’t read any of them yet.
I really loved her two most recent books!
