Stacking The Shelves #25

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  Each week nearly 100 bloggers share what they are reading!  Go to Tynga's blog for the complete list

It was our Spring Break this past week, and I got to stay up late, read, and do other fun things like spend the day in San Francisco with my daughter!  I was able to read four books this week.  Before you get all impressed, two of them were mini novels.  But I also did lots of blogging, so I am pretty pleased with what I got done this week.  I also got approvals for several new books!  Here is a run down of my week:

Read The Week:

 I was most impressed by the two novels A Reaper Of Stone, and Faith And Moonlight, by Mark Gelineau and Joe King.  These are two books I bought at the Silicon Valley ComicCon a few weeks ago.  I will write a full review soon, but they were extremely well-written and had a great universe.  I only wish they were longer!

 From NetGalley:


 All three of these books look great!  I think Age of Myth will be epic!


My copy of Rebel Of The Sands has arrived!  I feel like I need to read a few other books first, but this baby may jump the line.  I can't wait to begin this book!


I got this through an email offer by Derek Murphy.  This is the third of his novels that I have picked up recently.  I am very curious to see how these books are.  The cover is just beautiful, don't you think?

That's it for this week.  What books are you excited to get this week?  Which ones do you just need to read right now?

  1. I'm glad you were able to use your rest time to get some reading done! I had hoped to get more done but I'm catching up a bit at the end of the week so that is something! Have a good weekend and enjoy your books.

    1. Thank you! I get cranky when I don't have time to read! Usually, I steal away 15 minutes here or there, but it is so satisfying to be able to sit and read for a nice long stretch, right? Have a great week, too.

  2. OOh nice! Those are some new to me ones! I did enjoy Rebel of the Sands though! Hope you enjoy them all!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Yes, I have several books that I "need to read". But I think Rebel Of The Sands will jump the line and be my next read.

  3. Nice! I nabbed an ARC of Age of Myth this week as well. Looking forward to it.

    1. Isn't the cover for this book stunning? I can't wait to read this book!

  4. I’m glad you got a lot done during your time off. I hope you enjoy your new books.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Thank you. Even with the time off, I feel like I am such a slow reader (in contrast to how many books I have on my TBR). But slow and steady wins the race, right? Have a stupendous week!

  5. Rebel in the Sands is one I am looking forward to reading too. Enjoy.

    1. Me, too! I just finished one book today and will start Rebel Of The Sands after dinner!!! Have a great week.

  6. Rebel of the Sands is a fun read -- and pretty quick to read, too... *tempts*

    1. Hi Nikki, I'm just starting it. So far, I'm not sure what is happening. Is this a book about the old west? I know it isn't but it sure is giving out that vibe.

  7. I've heard mixed reviews of The Girl on the Train. I'm hoping to read it soon. Happy reading!

    1. I liked The Girl On The Train, but at times it seemed like the author was trying to be confusing just because she could. It is a quick read. I borrowed it from a friend, but if you got it from the library, there's no risk (other than taking your time).

  8. Rebel of the Sands is one I want to read so bad! Plus you have a few others I am interested in. Great haul!

    1. I am reading Rebel Of The Sands now. It is great! A quick read that I should finish tonight!
