Sunday Post #37 and Stacking the Shelves October 4th, 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.   I didn't do one of these last weekend, so I'm going to include the last two weeks.
Last two weeks on the blog:

I got two reviews a week.  Last weekend I was in New Orleans, which was so much fun!  I can't wait till I can find time to go back.  I've been getting started on my Blog Ahead Challenge, trying to get on top of things for NaNoWriMo last week.  I've also been working on trying to find all the numbers for the YA Scavenger Hunt.  So many awesome authors on the tour this year!

This week on the blog:
  • Blog Tour and review of Future Perfect by Jen Larsen
  • Cover Characteristic
  • Books to Movies Giveaway Hop
  • Reviews:  The Anatomy of Curiosity by Maggie Stiefvater, Tessa Gratton, and Brenna Yovanoff
  • Possible reviews:  Rapture by Lauren Kate, The Detour by S.A. Bodeen, A Madness So Discreet by Mindy Mcginnis
Not sure if I'll get my audio book of Rapture done this week. Also not sure which of the two last egalleys I've listed I'll actually read.  Also working on writing to get ready for NaNoWriMo next month.  

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  It's a pretty big pile of physical books this week!  Here they are:

  • Mad Madame LaLaurie by Victoria Cosner Love and Lorelei Shannon - Bought this in New Orleans, I didn't realize Kathy Bates' character on the American Horror Story: Coven was based on a real person
  • Brave New Love:  15 Dystopian Tales of Desire -  Got at The Dollar Tree store for $1
  • Bits and Pieces by Jonathan Maberry - Had to buy this one, it has a dedication to me because I won a contest on Facebook to name one of the stories, Tooth and Nail 
  • Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout - I ended up buying this one instead of Onyx when I saw it at the bookstore Saturday night
  • The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow - Got this ARC through a books for trade
  • These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly - our store manager brought this ARC back from the big manager meeting
  •  Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon - Another ARC brought back by my manager.

    Both were from Edelweiss, and I'd actually just recently written Waiting on Wednesday posts on.

    Free e-book:

    Only one these past two weeks. What with being out of town last weekend, I really just deleted most of the emails that listed free ebooks.  

    So, that's what I added to my shelves this week.  What did you add to yours?
