Sunday Post #11 and Stacking the Shelves June

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 had planned to do this last Sunday as I had downloaded several e-galleys. But, I was still kind of working on recovering from my surgery.  I think Sunday was the first day I tried to take a shower and really get around.  And the shower kind of wore me out.  So instead I saved and will do a two week Sunday post.  This past Tuesday though, I finally got to come back to my own house.  Doing that gave me more time to just sit and read, and I was able to get almost a book a day read!  And then when I felt up to it, I tried to blog every day as well.

Last week on the blog:
This week on the blog:

Well, I'm sure I will have several reviews as I continue to read about one book a day.  Thursday I go back to see my doctor for my 2 week post-op visit.  So I'm hoping that I can start driving myself again! That is one of the things that has been the biggest annoyance as I begin to feel more like myself.  Not being able to jump in the car and go get some french fries when I see a commercial on tv that makes me want them!  Maybe I'll try this week to get  through another book for my Big Book Challenge.  Maybe Light by Michael Grant, to finally finish that series, which will also help me for my Prequel and Sequel Challenge.  Actually, I'll probably need to do an update for that last challenge, as I've been doing those updates about every two months instead of every month.  So that will probably be a post this coming week as well.  There may be a Waiting on Wednesday as I have a couple books I'm really waiting on, but didn't get at BEA.

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.  

E-galleys from Edelweiss:

The first one is by an author I love.  And while I want a third book in her Transcendence series, I am happy for any other books by her. And this one sounds pretty good.  The 2nd one is a sequel to the book Gated, which was really good.  And the 3rd one is also a sequel, to Tandem, and I'm ready to read on in that series as well.

E-galley from Netgalley:

This is one I'm definitely thinking sounds pretty good.  Can't wait to read it!

Free download:

I got this from the awesome Parajunkee's View.  It is a free download of what might be a very helpful organizer for my blog.  Currently I am using a spiral calendar, and it mostly works. But I like the way this is set up, and I am going to print it out and try to use it this year.  Next year she will probably charge for one, so I figure I'll try out the free one and see if it will be worth buying. 

Now, my dreams have been really interesting lately. And I think it must be because I'm having major jealousy over those at the big ALA convention in Las Vegas right now.  But I dreamed last night I was going to have a whole stack of actual physical books to post about today when I blogged.  But alas, I woke up, and no big stack of books, at least not that I hadn't already shared from BEA.

So, what are your plans for this week?  Did you add anything awesome to your shelves?
