Sunday Post #31 and Stacking the Shelves June 21st, 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:
I got three reviews done last week, and one audiobook review.  I'm really getting more and more into them. So much so, that when my stupid car won't connect to my iphone for some stupid reason, I get really cranky when driving.  I had one post a day, like my goal is for the year as well.  On the Fit Readers side, I walked 3 miles EVERY day this week!  One day when it wasn't supposed to rain in the morning, it did start raining enough that I had to go stand in one of the park shelters for a few minutes, but I didn't let it stop me, I went back out as soon as the rain started tapering back to sprinkles and finished my walk.  I'm getting lots of reading done though this summer.  Don't forget while you're here to go enter my June New Release Giveaway!

This week on the blog:
  • Reviews:  Wildalone by Krassi Zourkova, The Designed by Kate Tailor
  • Audiobook review:  Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling
  • Possible reviews:  Sweet by Emmy Laybourne, Watched by CJ Lyons, Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren  
  • The last two above would be COYER Challenge books.  
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Book Blitzes:  Spectacle by S.J. Pierce, Tor Maddox series by Liz Coley
I am probably going to try to do some of the Scavenger Hunt with the COYER Challenge as well.  Downloaded that document so I could add to it as I went through it.  I have several review books I should go ahead and read to get ahead on.  I have a ton of egalleys scheduled in August, so I have to get a move on!!  As for the walking, well, not sure I'll get as much done this week.  You see, it is going to be really hot.  And, I'm going to be back doing inventory in my library.  So I'll be in the library in the morning, which will be the best part of the day to walk in this heat.  Not sure when I'll get out and walk.  Wish I had a treadmill in my house, or a place to even have a treadmill.  Oh well.  Guess I'll figure it out.  I also bought a swimsuit after seeing a picture of a friend in a pool and remembering just how nice it feels to be in a pool on a hot day.  I've not really lost any weight, and I still don't really want anyone to see me in a swimsuit, but I've got to get over that.  So hopefully I'll get my one sister to take me to the pool at her apartment one weekend.  I just wish I knew someone I would go to a pool with that had weekdays off, I feel like it might not be as busy.

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 about not buying books this week.  But we had the big 40% off all DVDs sale at the bookstore, and I got sucked into that by the other employees who spend a lot with that, and I spent a little bit on DVDs.  Which I never seem to have time to watch. But I have them now, in case I do want to, and do have time.  Here are the movies I got:

I've seen the Monkees and The IT Crowd, but not Caprica.  I've heard that I will really like Caprica since I liked a series by Robin Wasserman, so for the 40% off and a couple member's coupons I had, I bought them.

Physical Books:

 Since no one else had grabbed the ARC of Armada at the bookstore, and I was in the middle of listening to Ready Player One at the time, I had to take it.  The other book I saw in our bargain books.  It was $4.98, plus my 30% off, it was the only in the store, so I had to buy it.  Should be a quick fun read.


These are pretty much all free ebooks.  We Are Watching was for review.  The last one, Voice of Gods, is only a preorder, it comes out in August.

So that is all I got this week.  Oh yeah, I guess I did download an audiobook of  Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling.  But it was a free download through my 30 day free trial of Scribd.  

So, that's my week and what I got.  What did you add to your shelves this week?
