Stacking The Shelves #71 & Sunday Post #34

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...
On The Blog Last Week:
 After getting so many wonderful books the week before, I came to the realization that now I need to actually read them!  So, I have been playing catch up and reading as much as possible.  I'm really pleased that my Monday post, Bay Area Book Events, is getting over 100 hits each week!  I'm also to be interviewed by an independent publisher about this project for their newsletter.  I take a long time to gather as much information about book events in my area so people can have a one-stop place to find great literary events.

Monday:  Bay Area Book Events #36

Tuesday:   ARC Review: 10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac

Wednesday:  ARC Review:  The Marvelous Misadventures Of Ingrid Winter by J.S. Drangsholt

Thursday:  ARC Review:  The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
New Books:
Random House"First In Line":

I have already devoured this fun book!  Thank you, Random House!

In "Real Life"
The weather had been getting warm and Spring feels just around the corner.  Due to some appliance issues, I have not been able to use my stove much this week, so we have been doing takeout a bunch (oh, boo hoo!).  But that was fixed today, so I can get cooking decent meals for my family next week.

That's it!  Have you read any of these new books?  Tell me what you think of them in the comments.

  1. It's so weird that it's nearly spring -- it's the same here. I feel like we didn't have winter! I haven't read any of your new books. Hope you enjoy!

    My STS.

  2. Sorry to hear that your stove isn't working, but yayyy for not having to cook! lol! Our weather around here has been all over the place. It was mid 70s one day and then the next day in was low 30s. It's cold today too. I can't wait for warmer weather. Hope you have a great weekend

  3. Nice! I got Blood Rose Rebellion this week too! Cannot wait to read it!

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

    Have a GREAT day!
