Sunday Post #23 and Stacking the Shelves April 12th, 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.   


Last week on the blog:
So far my mini-mini-reviews for the A to Z Challenge have gone well.  I also met my two new reviews a week goal as well.  Not time for much else really, it was a busy week with working three nights at the bookstore. 

This week on the blog:
  • A to Z Challenge, posts K-P
  • Review and Bog tour:  Supervision by Alison Stine
  • Review and Blog tour:  Never Sleep by Cady Vance
  • Review and Blog tour:  Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke (Prisoner of Night and Fog #2) by Anne Blankman
  • Maybe Cover Characteristic



Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  This was a huge week for e-galleys!  Let's hope I can remember all that I got.  But let's start with the easy books, the physical ones.

Borrowed:

I checked out the first one from the bookstore where I work.  The 2nd one a fellow teacher loaned me after we discussed both loving Grasshopper Jungle by the same author.

YA Book Exchange:

I finally have the ARC that I'd hoped for at BEA last summer, but it wasn't even offered then, only a sampler.  Very glad to have it!  Thanks to Emily at Falling for YA for trading with me.

E-galleys from Edelweiss:

Look at all these wonderful books!  And there were more I thought about, but I had to hold myself back!  Three of these were already on my TBR list, and the other two I had to add of course.

E-galleys from Netgalley:
-->





 I've never read Mercedes Lackey, so the first one is really exciting for me.  The second one is one that falls into my latest obsession with fairy tale retellings.  Disney is publishing this retelling of Aladdin.  The third one is by a favorite author of mine, just a little teaser story before the actual Lois Lane is published.  And the last one, well you've probably seen me mention how excited I am for it!  So excited to see it on Netgalley!

Free Nook Books:

Ooh, almost forgot one more that I got for free and was very happy because it is by an author I read a book by a while back and was waiting to see when this would come out.

E-books for Review:

Purchased e-books:

 I won a $5 Amazon Gift Card for a Twitter contest posted by Kelly's Lucky You, where I guessed who was the first voice of Mickey Mouse.  It was Walt Disney himself if you didn't know.

So that is my week, including all the ebooks I added to my Nook this week!  Were you able to get ahold of any of these egalleys or free ebooks?  And while you're here, make sure to enter my giveaway that goes along with my A to Z Challenge in the Rafflecopter below!

    1. I can't wait till I have time to get to The Young Elites. I loved Legend by Marie Lu. I guess I just always get lost in the differences of the retellings and that is why I love them so and don't usually have any issues with. Ones I love are by Sarah Cross for sure, and the Splintered series by AG Howard.
