Sunday Post #45 and Stacking the Shelves December 13th, 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 had a busy week last week!
Last week on the blog:
So, I had a lot going on this past week, and there are several giveaways there, I think most of them last till the end of December, so go enter!  Also, I decided to go ahead and start the Challenge that I kept mentioning the last few weeks.  So go check it out from the link above.  Even if it doesn't sound right for you, I'm giving away a $5 Amazon gift card to anyone who at least tweets to promote it!

This week on the blog:
  • Blog tour with author interview:  The Concealed by Sarah Kleck
  • Reviews:  Until Beth by Lisa Amowitz, Everneath by Brodi Ashton
  • Book Blitz:  Ascendancy by Karri Thompson
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Promo Post:  Half in Love with Death by Emily Ross
  • Cover Characteristic:  Snakes
  • Possible Reviews:  Hear by Robin Epstein, Audiobook:  The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige
  • Possible Challenge Posts
Several reviews to write, and a few promo posts.  On Monday I have to mail out my The Broke and the Bookish Secret Santa Gift.  I'm cutting it really close, but it has to do with being broke!  It's the last week of school before my Christmas break.  Should be a mostly easy week, but it will be long!  
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  So I had a pretty good book haul this week.  but it seems like the mail all comes on one day, and then the rest of the week I get none. Sure wish the post office could spread it out!
Physical Books:
The top 5 books I won from Two Chicks on Books Fantastic Fives giveaway last month.  Some great ARCs!  Although one or two may not be ones I will read, so they may show up for trade.  Defiance, The Eternal City, and Nightfall all came from a book trading group on Facebook.  Winter was part of the giveaway I told you about last week from Jessica at A Great ReadTeardrop and Alive came from booksfortrade on Twitter.
E-galleys:




Very excited to get approved for this on Netgalley!

Free e-books:





The first one was from Amazon, the 2nd from Barnes and Noble, the third I won in a contest.

Those are my hauls for the week!  What did you add to your shelf!

  3. That's a tall stack of books. LOL Mine comes that way sometimes. My postman suggested I get a larger mail box. I asked him if he could suggest it to Santa! We both laughed. Have a great break and enjoy the holidays:)

    1. Ah, that's an awesome postman! I have all my stuff delivered to my work address because I had a few things disappear from my house. So I don't ever get to see our postman. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. My postman has to work hard all year round with all the Amazon buying I do! Still I don't spend my money on anything else so that's ok!

    1. Most of the time I get packages at my work, to make sure I get them. It'd just be nice to get them once a day instead of all on one day. Thanks for visiting!
