Stacking The Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Team Tynga's Reviews. Each week, nearly 100 bloggers share what they got in their book hauls! It is really fun to blog hop and see all the goodies!
This week, I will also be linking up with the Sunday Post weekly feature hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I've seen a lot of fellow bloggers link up with this meme, so I hope to gain a wider audience by joining.

I had a quick visit down in Santa Barbara (California) over the Independence Day holiday. I got to see my husband's family and watch the fireworks on the Rivera (a swanky part of town overlooking the city). They put on a great show. I am so grateful for my Mother-in-law for putting us up and making wonderful meals throughout our stay. She is amazing!
The next day, I went with my daughter to Carpenteria to see my lovely Aunt and her friends. This woman is 88 years old, and has the most wonderful group of friends. Around this very small town they are called Los Tres Mosqueteros! They go everywhere together, and are always laughing. We had a great visit at one of their homes.
Soon the trip was over and we were back to our regular lives. On our way home (a six hour car ride), my husband got a call from work asking him to come to the office the next day. I was quite mad as this is his vacation week. But he took it in stride and told them yes. This man has can never get a chance to relax! I need to fix that...
On My Blog:Sat. July 2nd - Stacking The Shelves #37

I wrote four posts last week, featuring my new resource for people living in the Bay Area: San Francisco Bay Area Book Events. Each week, I am going to list all the book events around the area that I think people will be interested in. There is actually a lot of events, but going through all the various bookstore websites has been a pain. I hope by having them all in one place, people who live in this area will have a resource to check out book events. I plan to update this list weekly.
All book covers are linked with GoodReads, so if your interested, just click away...
Read This Week:
This has been a fun week of reading for me! All three of these books were fabulous. I can't believe it took me this long to dive in to the Air Awakens series! With a new book coming out on Tuesday, I need to hurry up and keep reading this saga! Ditto with Fangirl. What a sweet and wonderful story. Valley of the Moon was a delight. I will be reviewing it in the next few weeks.
Well, you know I just need to read on, right? Both of these are sequels to the books I read last week. I just hope I can read them soon. I hate to have large gaps in reading books from a series (mostly because I am very forgetful).
This looks like a good book about sisters coping with their mom having cancer. This is a subject near and dear to my heart.
From The Library:
This is an audiobook of a popular podcast that my daughter loves. I think it is an acquired taste. So far, I am feeling meh over it.
So how was your week? What books did you receive? Are you enjoying your summer? Let's talk!
