Stacking The Shelves #60 & Sunday Post #23

I am combining two great blog hops:  Stacking The Shelves (a Saturday feature by Team Tynga's Reviews), and Sunday Post (a Sunday feature by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer).  Both of these features give people a chance to post about what books they received and also an opportunity to catch a glimpse of what others are excited about.  I really enjoy see everyone's version of these features! If you enjoy my blog, please consider following me via Bloglovin, Networked Blogs, GFC, or by email subscription.  If you leave a comment and tell me you are a new follower, I will follow you back! As always, all book cover images are linked to GoodReads so if you see a book you want to learn more about, just click away...

Happening This Past Week:
Last week I mentioned that I would be doing lots of baking and I wound up with twenty-one loaves of pumpkin bread!  I gave them all away, too.  I got a lovely response from my friends, and it was very gratifying to know that everyone enjoyed them.

It has been a busy, wonderful week in Kindergarten!  So many fun activities and the kids were so darling!  Today was the last day of school before vacation, so we had a school wide holiday sing-along, stories, and writing time, too!

We also had a staff party that was super fun.  What a wonderful group of people to work with!  I am so blessed to be a part of this group.

New Books:

Public Library:

The Masquerading Magician is book #2 of The Accidental Alchemist series which I am now loving!  And Legend has been on my TBR for FOREVER.  I finally will listen to it on audio book (so I can actually look forward to cleaning my house tomorrow!).

From The Read With Tessa Book Club:



 I am aching to read all of these books!!!  I really want to devote lots of time on this vacation to just sitting with a cup of tea and reading for hours.

Wish me luck!

Whatever holiday you may be preparing for, I hope you have a week of fun and ZERO stress!

  3. I've never tried anything with pumpkin and certainly never had pumpkin bread! Pity you don't live on my street! You'll be looking forward to the holidays and time to read and relax-hopefully you'll have lots of booky fun!

  4. I don't think I have ate any thing pumpkin flavoured before. It was kind of you to make so many and share them with friends. You got some great books. Have a great Christmas.

  5. Great collection of books and I love that cat:) Happy Reading! Enjoy your new books!

  6. Legend is also on my TBR. http://shoshireads.weebly.com/home/get-to-know-me-better-tag

  7. Twenty-one loaves, WOW! That's a lot. I'm sure they were amazing. =) I loved The Diabolic, The Midnight Star, The Shadow Queen. Sadly I was disappointed by The Beauty of Darkness. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous week. :)

    Check out my STS post!
