Sunday Post #20 and Stacking the Shelves March 22nd, 2015





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 haven't done a Sunday Post in a while, but I was pretty good this past week and so don't have a lot to share for Stacking the Shelves, so I thought I'd share some upcoming events, as well as celebrate the amount of reading I got done this past week during my spring break.


Last week on the blog:
 Now that is three reviews for the week, but I actually finished 4 books, I'll just be reviewing the 4th one, We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach, tomorrow as part of a blog tour.  I only ended up doing the Cover Characteristic post because one of my goals for this year was to try to post every day on my blog.  And so I had to do something!  My other goal was to stay with at least 2 reviews a week, and I did that for sure with 3 this past week.

This week on the blog:
  • A to Z Blogging Challenge Theme Reveal
  • We All Looked Up Review and Official Book Playist
  • Review:  Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer
  • Review:   Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little
  • YA Spring Fling Giveaway Blitz??
  • Maybe Cover Characteristic 
Getting ready for the A to Z Blogging Challenge in April, I'll be revealing the theme for my posts on Monday.  My review for We All Looked Up is also scheduled for Monday as I'm part of a tour and didn't really choose at the time.  I also have written on my calendar for the YA Spring Fling Giveaway Blitz and I'm not sure exactly what I'm supposed to be doing for that yet.  So that'll be a surprise for me too!  I finished Belzhar Saturday night, so it will need to be reviewed Tuesday probably.  And I just started Forbidden this morning, so it will be a review later this week.  The theme for the cover characteristic meme this week is hair, so I may or may not mess with it.  





Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.   I was pretty good this week in that I only got one physical book, and only 3 e-galleys.




I found another magazine that I felt I had to have, even though I have yet to have time to pick up the two I got last week.


I found this on our bargain table last week, a hardcover for $5.98, cheaper than even buying the mass market paperback, especially with my 30% employee discount.

E-galleys:





  I was so excited when I finally got approved for Daughter of Deep Silence, I love Carrie Ryan's zombie series.  I also am looking forward to reading the sequel to Feuds, and the last one just looks and sounds really good.  With Torn, I got to thinking about all the times I didn't get ARCs of sequels or other books in series that I'd read the first book.  So I think I might go search through Edelweiss and maybe Netgalley for the sequels to see if I can still find them.  At least books that I read the first one in the past year.  

What did you add to your bookshelves this past week?

  3. I read The Forest of Hands and Teeth years ago but never got round to reading the trilogy. Now I think I need to track down the prequels so I can do a full series read. I might investigate some of her other work. Enjoy your books!

    1. The trilogy was pretty good, although the first book was probably my favorite. You should definitely get all of them and read them all together. I love when I can do that. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. So many new books. Innocent Blood is one I think I've read. I'll have to check as it's been a bit. Daughter of Deep Silence and Deadly Design look pretty good too.

  13. Enjoy the new books. I think the way Leonard Nimoy used his role as Spock was amazing. It was a hard role and he parlayed it into a lifetime of creativity.
