Stacking the Shelves!

I have wanted to do this feature for a long time!  But, as I can be extremely disorganized, I forgot where I saw this in the first place!  So thank you Country Bookworm, for posting this feature on your blog today!  This feature was originally started by Team Tynga's Reviews.  Please check out their wonderful blogs.  The idea is to show what books you have received each week.  This may give others an idea for a book to read and to see what is popular in the blogosphere. 

From Netgalley:

Somehow I got approved for a bunch of ARCs this week!  This is great but also kind of a double edged sword: because I added these books, my rating (approval vs. feedback) went way down!  Now I feel obliged to hurry up and read these books!  Thankfully I really am excited to delve into them.  But this sort of messes up my reading plans for the month!

These are the titles:

From the Public Library:
The students in one of my classes are reading The Tiger Rising and I feel I will do a better job with them if I know what they are reading.  It should be a quick read.  Vicious looks intriguing as so many people have raved about it.  And In Cold Blood is a book selection for my bookclub called #AdultBooklr on Tumbler and GoodReads.  It is non-fiction and a classic.  That's it for the week!  I don't know how I am going to read all of these wonderful books!  I guess sleep will be a low priority activity for a while!

  1. Ooh some fab books in your post. I have the Bill Bryson on my wishlist, I love all his previous books so am very keen to read this one too. The Truman Capote book is a very good read.

    Here's my post: https://rathertoofondofbooks.wordpress.com/2015/10/17/my-weekly-wrap-up-and-stacking-the-shelves-2/

  2. Great post, and a reminder for me to get involved with this meme! Like you I've seen it around but keep getting waylaid when it comes to actually posting. Strangely enough, In Cold Blood was the last read for my book club too. Not my usual type of book but I quite enjoyed it.

  4. I can't wait to see what you think about Vicious! And don't forget once you post your review, you can email the author to get trading cards!!

  5. Vicious is supposed to be a great read, it is on my list! I hope you enjoy!
