Sunday Post #10 and Stacking the Shelves June 15th, 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.

 I chose to not just do Stacking the Shelves, but also a Sunday Post, because I may be missing in action for a bit on my blog starting this Wednesday.  You see I'm having a major surgery on Wednesday.  Not only is it kind of a big one, I've never had surgery before, so I have no idea how long it will take me to recover.  Plus, once I get out of the hospital I'm going to be staying at my dad and stepmom's house for a few days or until I get to where I can take care of myself.  Which I'm hoping that by next Sunday I'll feel that way.  So I'm hoping to post Monday and Tuesday for sure.  After that, there's no telling when I will post again, by next week I'm sure though.  One thing I do hope to get done during my recovery time is lots of reading.  And while I normally try to review as soon as I finish each book, I may have a bunch of reviews all one right after another if I don't feel like blogging, but get a lot of books read.  Plus this past week I've been kind of helping my mom out after she had surgery a week and a half ago, so while I'm hanging out at her house, I'm not really getting as much reading done as I'd like to, so that's why I didn't have posts every day this past week.

Last week on my blog:

This week on my blog:

I'm pretty sure I will have a review of the current book I'm reading either tomorrow night or Tuesday, and that is City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare, part of my Big Book Summer Challenge.  Not sure what I'll post tomorrow if I don't get the book finished by then.  And I may try to go ahead and do a Waiting on Wednesday Tuesday night, set to post on Wednesday, so that I get more done this week.  We'll see how this week goes. 

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I didn't do this post last weekend, so this will include everything for the past two weeks.  

Received ARC from publisher:

YA Book Exchange:

Received from authors I met standing in line at BEA (not requested):

The first one is a dystopian, so I'm very excited about it. The second one is fantasy, so we'll see how far I get with it when I get a chance to get to it.

E-galley from Netgalley:

Free e-books:

So the last was a set that was free(still is as of today, go HERE), and includes:
One or two are ones I will probably never read, but who knows.  Several sounded good, and hey, free!
So, those are the books I added to my shelves, mostly my Nook shelves, these past two weeks.  Did you add anything good this week?
