Sunday Post #35 and Stacking the Shelves September 6th, 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 two reviews this week, and one wasn't a book that I loved.  I did get some other books read, but didn't have time to fit in the reviews this week.  So those will be happening next week.  My giveaway started on Monday, and will finish up this coming Tuesday, be sure to click on the link above and enter!  For my Fit Blogger update, I only got two days of 3 miles walked this past week, but that's okay.  I'll be off to a good start this coming week I hope. With tomorrow off from work, I intend to go walk for sure.  I've finished one book for my sequels challenge in the first week of September, the review will be next week.  I've also got to think about getting things read and with November coming up, I'll be doing NaNoWriMo again, so that will cut into some reading time.  Had a great writing date with my writer friend this morning.  

In other big news, I got selected to be part of author Victoria Scott's Titans Jockeys to help promote her new book.  You can see the button on my right side bar.

This week on the blog:
  • Reviews:  Audiobook of Fallen by Lauren Kate, Arianna's Destiny by Michelle Sodaro
  • Promo Post:  Bleed by Dax Varley
  • Top 10 Tuesday
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Possible reviews:  Dark Shimmer by Donna Jo Napoli, Prodigy by Marie Lu
  • Possible Cover Characteristic post
I've really got to get 2 sequels read this week to get caught up on my challenge goal of 8 for the month.  I also at some point want to join into the Series Ender Challenge, so I may do a sign-up post for myself in the next couple of weeks as well.  Trying to not stress over the review books I didn't get to, and working on not requesting a bunch of new ones.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  As it was still part of August, and I had a book buying ban, there wasn't much purchased, other than I did go to the Dollar Tree Store and buy some books for my school library, good books, one was from the House of Night series by P.C. Cast!  Without further ado, here is my haul for the week:

Physical books:

The first one I got as a book for trade on Twitter.  The second one was a strip from the bookstore where I work. The third one is an ARC that I also got from the bookstore.

I got approved for this one egalley on Edelweiss.  I did good only asking for this one!

Free e-books:

 The top three were all on Amazon, the bottom two were from Barnes and Noble.  

So those are my new additions to my book shelves.  What's new on your shelves this week?
