Stacking The Shelves # 77 & Sunday Post # 40

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:

New Books:
Public Library:


Okay, I went a little crazy over spring break and ordered a ton of books from the library.  I am finishing up an ARC and then I get to indulge in all of these lovelies!!! 
Thank you Public Library
From Wikipedia:  Peterborough Town Library, the first completely tax supported public library in the United States, Peterborough, New Hampshire.  It was founded at a town meeting on April 9th, 1833.

That's it for this week.  I will be doing lots of reading and catching up on writing blog posts this weekend.  What are your plans?  What will you be reading?  Let me know in the comments.

  1. Ooh nice! I LOVED The Kiss of Deception and the other books of the trilogy! Really tripped me up with the whole not knowing who was who! I swear I kept going back and forth! I think I eventually got the right guess! LOL! Happy Reading!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. I am excited to read all these books. I just need to make the time so I won't have to rush through them. Have a great week.

  2. I hope you love all your books. I’m on a waiting list for The Hate U Give, but the list is massive. It’ll be a long time before I can read it.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. The wait list for this book is gigantic! I need to prioritize this book because I know I won't be able to renew it. I hope it lives up to the hype!

  3. I really want to read The Hate U Give...I need to give myself permission to buy it...or hey, here's an idea! Get it from the library.

    I am so envious of your Bay Area book events!

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. Thank you, Laurel-Rain. There is going to be another great event in June: The Bay Area Book Festival, in Berkeley. We had so much fun last year! This is the only large-scale event in my area, though. I would love to go to all those ALA conventions, and such (oh, the grass is always greener...). Have a wonderful week.

  4. Awesome haul of books. I hope you love all of your new goodies.

    Grace @ Books of Love

    1. Thank you, Grace. I'm a little overwhelmed by all these books. but I'm glad to have so many wonderful choices! Have a wonderful week.

  5. I'm looking forward to The Hate U Give, enjoy and happy Easter!

    1. I just finished The Hate U Give, and it was superb. It is something that should be read by everyone!

  6. The Hate U Give should be great :)

    1. I finished it yesterday, and it was so moving. It really explained about why African-Americans are afraid of the police, why they are so frustrated by police not getting charged in these shootings, and so much more. Find a copy NOW!

  7. Oh, the Robin LeFevers trilogy and Rachel Caine's Great Library books are all on my list to read at some point. Hopefully this year? I wish you a wonderful week and happy reading. May you have time to finish all those lovely library books!

    1. I devoured the first Robin LaFevers book, Grave Mercy. Now I need to hurry up and read the other two! They should be wonderful, as well. Have a lovely week of reading.

  8. Ooh, The Hate U Give! I wonder what you'll think of that one.
    Have a nice week :)

  9. Oooh! Great set of books you got there! I just read Dark Triumph and I loved it! I really want to read the Hate U Give soon!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog

  10. I love getting a big haul from the library! It's so satisfying! I loved Dark Triumph, I think it's my fav in the series. Enjoy!

  11. You're not alone, I also went crazy on books/ARCs last week :D
    Have a great week!
