Sunday Post #15 and Stacking the Shelves November 9th, 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.   With NaNoWriMo going on, I kind of like this so I can recap that as well as what I did on the blog during the week.

Last week on the blog:
 I didn't get enough books read this week to get in my 2 reviews a week goal.  But this is the first week all year that I think this has been an issue.  So I won't stress myself too much.  And part of the reason I won't stress myself is because I'm pretty much on track with my NaNoWriMo novel.  I've got over 13,000 words as of Saturday.  So I'm pretty much on track.  One of the books I was worried about expiring actually was a Kindle e-galley so it is still on my Nook, and I'm almost done with it.  But, I have a book to review as part of a tour on Monday, so I had to put Girl on a Wire aside till I finish it.

This week on the blog:
  • Review of Shade by Cody Stewart
  • Review:  Girl on a Wire by Gwenda Bond
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Cover Characteristics
  • Top 10 Tuesday (If time)
  • Review:  ????  (Whatever book I pick after I finish the two above.
November is a seriously busy, crazy busy month.  I've still got to get in my NaNoWriMo writing to keep on track.  I will probably meet my writing buddy, author Michelle Sodaro on Tuesday and Friday nights for sure.  But the rest of the week will be on my own unless I have some time tomorrow.  Lots of excitement in the book world for me this week.  Monday night Maggie Stiefvater, Brenna Yovanoff, and Tessa Gratton will be in town and I'm going to go see them again and get some more books autographed.  Then Thursday night Stephen King will be in town and I'm going to go watch him in a question and answer type event.  Unfortunately it won't be an autograph event.  Which makes me sad as he is an author on my bucket list of authors to meet.  Then deer hunting season (rifle) starts this weekend, so my step-dad, brother, and my aunt's husband will be heading out of town on Friday night.  That means that Saturday is our annual girls' shopping trip for my mom, my aunts, and myself.  And while I should be writing, or reading, I can't miss out on it!  I'm hoping to go to the Coach purse outlet and maybe get a new purse if I find one I like in my price range.  And then of course I'll be working at my part time job at Barnes and Noble Wednesday night and Sunday morning.  And on the 16th, we will have our annual holiday store meeting, which means I have to be there at 7 am!!!  No sleeping in for me until the 22nd of November.  :-(

 Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  Let me tell you, I have been on a winning streak for the last week or so.  So here is what I got this past week, and there will be more on the way!

Books won:


The first two I won from a Clearing the Shelf giveaway at Book Briefs.   All the Rage I won from a Macmillan Teen giveaway in The School Library Journal.  I won The 100 and The 100: Day 21 from Jean BookNerd.  And the last one, Horrorstor I won from VVB32 in the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop.

So, there you go.  That's what I did last week, my plans for this week, and the books I added to shelves this past week. How about you?  What did you add to your shelves this week?
