Stacking The Shelves #26

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

Happy Saturday!  I was back to work this week from Spring break.  Surprisingly, I got a lot of reading and blogging done, but I am so very tired.  The books I read this week were so fun, I think I've been running on about 5 hours of sleep per night!  I am NOT a morning person, but I still must get up at "stupid o'clock".  I hope you all had a productive week!

Read This Week:


I enjoyed all three books this week, but I was really exited to read Rebel Of The Sands!  This book had great world-building, fun characters, and a nice bit of romance.  



From Irish Banana's Book Tour:

 When I got this in the mail, I got so excited!  I  was thinking I just randomly received this book (as I said, I have been super tired this week).  Then I looked through my emails, and realized I was signed up for this book tour with Hannah the "Irish Banana."  Honestly, I forgot I signed up for this book tour!  I guess I need more sleep...

How was your week?  Which books are you excited to read?  Let me know in the comments?

  1. I'm very much a night person! I used to do night shifts in my last job and enjoyed them. It's only when I stopped work that I started getting up at 7am every day! When the summer hits, I'll be up earlier as my bedroom is south facing and gets very warm first thing!

    1. I need to be up by 5:30 in order to get ready to get to school on time! It's the one thing I hate about my job! Even on the weekends, my body wakes me up early! But at least I get a lot done on Saturday mornings!

  2. I was wondering how on earth you got all that reading done in one week! :D I'm very impressed, but yeah, you should definitely get some more sleep before you poop out...

    1. All of these books were really good! My friend gave me Big Little Lies and I couldn't put it down! It was so funny and the setting was relevant to where I work. I will review it soon.

  3. Oooh! I am very curious about Holding Smoke!! I loved Elle's Nearly series and keep hoping we'll get another out of it! Will have to check this one out as well!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I am always happy to see your comments, Jessica! I need dto read these ARCs to clear some space for all the new books coming out on April 26th: The Raven King, The Star-Touched Queen, and The Rose And The Dagger all come out on the same day!!!

  4. I hope you enjoy your new books. I start my spring break next week, so I’m excited to have more reading time.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. I love my job in a school, but I also love my downtime! It is so good to have more time to read. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. I loved Big Little Lies...and I am drawn to Change Places with Me. Enjoy your week...and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Big Little Lies was so good! Funny, but not complete fluff. There were some very serious matters addressed in that book. Thank you for looking at me blog.

  6. I almost got Holding Smoke, but held off. It looks very interesting though. Rebel Of The Sands looks great, too. Both are very tempting!

    1. I really liked the world-building in Rebel Of The Sands. It is a fun universe. Thanks for stopping by.
