Sunday Post #6 and Stacking the Shelves - May 4th, 2014

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted  @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

Last week on my blog:

Once again I met my goal of 2 reviews this week.  I finished my A to Z April Challenge this past week as well.  And I wrapped up my prequels and sequels that were read in the last two months.  I did take both Friday and Saturday off from blogging because I had done at least one blog post every day in April because of the challenge.  

This week on my blog:
  • Review of Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
  • Review of The One (Selection #3) by Kiera Cass
  • Wishlist Wednesday
  • Re-cap of Dark Days of Spring Tours event Thursday night
  • Review of End Times by Anna Schumacher
  • Stacking the Shelves
I should hopefully finish Beautiful Darkness today.  And I will be buying The One on Tuesday, and hoping to finish it before I get to see the author Thursday night.  I intend to do some unique Wishlist Wednesdays this month leading up to BEA.  I believe this week I'm going to do my wishlist of authors I hope to meet at BEA.  Then next week I'll probably do my wishlist of ARCs I hope to get at BEA, and the 3rd Wednesday of May I'll probably do a wishlist of the finished books I'm hoping to get at BEA.  The last Wednesday of May I'll be on a plane on my way to NYC for BEA, so don't know that I'll get anything blogged that day, but will hopefully get lots of reading done while I am traveling.  I'm really hoping to find out a way to meet up with a bunch of bloggers that I know are going.  The first time I went, 2 years ago, I did meet some, but it was kind of by chance, ending up in line by them. Which may be the way it happens again, oh well.  

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I actually am doing a 2 week post, as I didn't have much to share last week, plus was kind of busy on Sunday, so waited till today to post it all.

ARC received from publisher:

I requested this through a link in the Shelf Awareness email newsletter, and shortly after the package arrived from the publisher.


I received a physical copy of The Iron Queen by winning the Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop at A Casual Reader's Blog stop.  I won an e-copy of The 5th Wave from Another World of Books' blogoversary giveaway.

E-galleys from Netgalley:

I keep trying not to request more e-galleys, but I had to have the 3rd book in the Dante Walker series, and the other one just sounded too good!

E-galley from Edelweiss:

I requested this one, even though I now found out that the author is supposed to be at BEA, so I may get an actual physical copy of the book there.

Free e-book downloads:

These are two that I found for free.  Now I think the first one I actually got the whole series in one book, but not sure.  

99 cent e-book download:

Normally I don't want to spend money on e- books if I can help it, but this one just sounded too cute to pass up for that price.

So, what are your plans for the upcoming week?  Will I maybe get to meet you at BEA?  What books did you add to your shelves this week?
