Sunday Post #65 and Stacking the Shelves July 24th, 2016

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.  Not sure when the being busy is going to end, but it's still there!  And I didn't get one review a day written, so I'm still behind.  :-(

Last week on the blog:
I got my two reviews for the week in.  I had planned to do my discussion post this week, but didn't get to it, so I'm planning it for this Thursday.  I did my exercising like I should, so yay!  I also got to the movies this week, finally saw The Secret Life of Pets, and also went to see the new Star Trek movie.  I went in and worked with my new co-librarian on Monday.  It sounds like we have a lot of the same ideas, so I'm getting very excited for next year.  I got to go to the Royals baseball game on Monday night and it was a blast!  They were losing, and then, come the 8th inning, they brought it back!  It was so exciting.  I still insist that I probably need to be at the home games as a good luck charm to help them win.  They didn't win Saturday  night.  They did win Friday night, and while I wasn't at the game, I was visiting my grandpuppies over near the baseball stadium.  I've told you about my grandpuppies, right?  My male dachshund, Argyle, is still used by his breeder once in awhile.  Well, this is his second litter, and they were actually born on the same day as his first litter last year.  Here's a picture of me with one of the puppies.

Isn't he adorable!  :-)  Of course it is still pretty hot outside, so I'm ready for hopefully some cooler weather and getting to see him and his three siblings play outside.

I've put my 3 days of walking on the calendar to make sure that I get them all in.  I also need to do some writing, but I know that this week I need to get into my library and get some stuff done!  

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I did okay with physical books.  I only bought one, but got three others.  Ebooks, well, you'll see.

Physical books:

I won both of these from Jennifer L. Armentrout in a giveaway on her Facebook page.  I have to finish reading the Covenant series first.  I've got books 3 and 4 on their way from The Book Depository.  I decided I wanted the white covers.  :-)
I got this as part of the books for trade on Twitter.  I haven't read this author yet, but she is going to be at NOLA Story Con when I go in September, so I should give her a try before, right?  And then have this to get autographed?
I found this at Half Price Bookstore this weekend.  It's the next book in this series that I need, although I will probably listen to it as an audiobook.  I will eventually want to own all of them I think!  Just in case I ever get the chance to meet the author.  :-)


Both of these are from Edelweiss. 

Free or Cheap Ebooks:

 All of these I got from Amazon for the Kindle app, except the last one is for my Nook.  But I didn't realize that Masque is the second book in a series.  Grrr.

Free e-books/galleys:

All of these were given to me by the authors, either for review, or for signing up for their newsletter.

So, those are the books I got this past week.  What did you add to your shelves? Virtual or physical?
