Sunday Post #25 and Stacking the Shelves May 3rd, 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 I made it all the way through the A to Z Challenge!  Yay!  I'm kinda glad to be done though.  Back to my normal blogging, and being able to do some of my regular meme type posts again.  Besides those mini-reviews, I still got two other reviews done during the week.  I did not get any post done last Sunday though, so today's Stacking the Shelves is probably going to be pretty long!

This Week on the Blog:
  • Review:  A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
  • Book Blitz:  Halfway Perfect by Julie Cross and Mark Perini
  • Cover Reveal:  Diamonds are Forever by Michelle Madow
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Book Blitz:  Ghosts of July by Megan Applegate
  • Possible Reviews:  Ice Kissed (Kanin Chronicles #2) by Amanda Hocking or Cleo by Lucy Coats
A pretty busy week coming up!  There's actually one other egalley I might try to get read this week, but haven't decided which egalley sounds best yet.  I've got to get some reading done and I'm really trying to get all my Netgalley books read on time. But since I download them to my Kindle app, and they never really expire that way, it's hard to not jump ahead to the Edelweiss galleys that will expire. So the books I read this week may change due to that.

My Fit/Walking Goal
Well, last week was not good.  I had a few days where I got 10,000 steps in, but it was only because of working at the bookstore.  I just didn't get out to walk as much as I'd have liked to.  One nice thing, at our Wednesday afternoon professional development meeting this past week, we got to go outside and so I got a mile walked around the school track that day.  I did learn that maybe I'll just bring my walking clothes and get my walking in at school before I head home, so that I don't have the excuses to not walk once I get home.  I also found a Run, Walk, Run program I might try to see if maybe at some point I can get to running.  I don't know how I'll get 20 miles a week in during the school year right now, just too many things going on.  But I'd like to try to at least get out and walk for at least a half hour 3 days a week.  

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  Now, keep in mind that what I list below is for the last two weeks.  So it is a lot!


All but the last two are from Edelweiss.  The last two come from Netgalley.  I've got to hurry up and read my ARC of The Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant so that I can read my egalley of The Tattooed Heart.  Very excited about all of these!  

Physical Books:

 The first one is a stripped cover from the bookstore where I work.  The second one was an unsolicited ARC from the publisher, Sourcebooks.  The last one is an ARC that I won from Brittany at Brittany's Book Rambles

Free e-books:

All free.  Will see when or if I get to them!

So, whew!  Too many added, who knows when I'll ever get to them!!  But they're there in case I get in the mood to read them.  What did you add to your shelves this week?

Now I'm off to walk today.  I'll be back to go comment on other blogs later today!
