Sunday Post #27 and Stacking The Shelves May 17th, 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:

Only got 2 reviews done this week. Didn't get as much reading done as I would have liked.  In fact, last night I only had like 5% left in the book I was reading, Phobic, and I couldn't stay awake long enough to finish it. So mad at myself.  So I'll finish it today.  I also didn't get a post every day.  And with my walking, well, it was rainy almost all week again.  

This week on the blog:
  • Review of Phobic by Cortney Pearson
  • Book Blitz:  Ghosts of July by Megan Applegate
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Book Blitz:  Aftermath by Tom Lewis
  • Promo Post:  Revolution by Randi Cooley Wilson
  • Maybe Cover Characteristic:  Red Covers
  • Possible Reviews:  A School for Unusual Girlsby Kathleen Baldwin, YOLO Juliet by William Shakespeare and Brett Wright, and/or The Cage by Megan Shepherd
It is going to be a pretty busy week.  It is the last week of school, and I work two nights at the bookstore.  Tuesday night I'm going to the NKOTB concert.  Wednesday night I have to drive across town and drop off one of my dogs at the breeder before I go out of town on Friday.  The other dog stays with a friend closer to my house, and I'll drop her off Thursday night on my way to work at the bookstore.  Friday is teachers only, and we can leave when everything is checked in and grades are finished. Since I don't really have either of those things to do, I'm going to go in for a couple hours and then drive on down to meet my family in Branson for the weekend.  We stay in these cabins on the river, and there should be lots of reading time this weekend!

My fit/walking goals:
Not sure I'll get much done this week.  It is supposed to be nice this afternoon, so I'm going to try to get out and do that this afternoon. But then I may not have time until Wednesday, but with dropping Argyle off later in the evening, I kind of want to be home to spend time with him instead of away walking.  I'll try to walk down the street by our cabins in Branson, but that will probably be about it for this week.  Once school is out though, I hope to start being much better and routine about my walking.  I also want to continue the Run Walk Run program.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  No physical books really this week, other than some coloring books I got for my family to use in Branson this weekend.  

 Yeah, that's a lot of books, but none are added to my TBR list, so it's okay that I bought them.  Plus it will give the adults stuff to color while the kids are coloring.


Ebooks for Review:

Free e-books:

I  haven't read the Alienated series yet, but I want to, so downloaded this free novella.  The other one I thought would be fun to get a look at what authors and publishers can use.

So that is what I added to my shelves this week, although the coloring books probably won't actually go on my bookshelves.  Have you gotten into the adult coloring book trend yet?  What books did you get this week?
