Sunday Post #26 and Stacking the Shelves May 10th, 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:
Wow, four reviews in one week! Double my goal of two a week.  And it was so nice to be back to regular blogging, the A to Z Challenge was a bit exhausting.  There's a few egalleys I should have got to last week, but since they don't expire, I had to move on to those that did.  Hoping to get a lot of reading done this week!

This week on the blog:
  • Review:  5 to 1  by Holly Bodger
  • Book Blitz:  The Violet Hour by Andrea L. Wells
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Cover Characteristic
  • Top 10 Tuesday (maybe)
  • Possible Reviews:  Illusionarium by Heather Dixon, The Choosing by Rachelle Decker, and/or Ice Kissed (Kanin Chronicles #2) by Amanda Hocking
This week should be a little less busy outside of blogging.  I only work at the bookstore one weeknight.  I was supposed to be going to see Pitch Perfect Thursday night, but now don't know if I will be.   So I hope to get some time at home to read and try to get caught up on my DVR TV shows.

My fit/walking goals:
I didn't really get any walking done outside this past week thanks to all the rain we've been having.  Hoping to get more done this week. We'll see what happens.  I did do one day of the Run Walk Run program, and I want to keep doing it.  See what it does.
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.   Let's just say that until I went to the Scholastic Book Warehouse sale yesterday, I had a pretty small stack.  

Physical Books:

I had to buy the Barnes and Noble special edition copy of The Heir this week. The other five books are all from the Scholastic Warehouse sale.  


I'm so excited to see the first one, the sequel to The Curiosities by Maggie Stiefvater, Tessa Gratton, and Brenna Yovanoff!  The one by Jennifer Donnelly is another exciting one as I love her books.  I normally only really take YA books, but once in a while a memoir grabs me, and Felicia Day has been on some of my favorite shows, so I'm excited to read her book.

Free e-books:

I have read and enjoyed Jemima J, so had to get the first one.  The other two just sounded halfway good and for free I said why not!  

So, what did  you add to your shelves this week?
