Stacking The Shelves #93 & Sunday Post #56

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...

New Books:
Public Library:
 I am trying to read all the books in the series because I got a copy of book three, but haven't read books 1 & 2! Whew, I have a lot of reading to do.
This is an audio book, and I am loving it so far (and getting lots of work done around the house as a result.  Any excuse to listen to this fun book).

Simon & Schuster:
I was contacted by the author's publicist to take part in the Blog Tour for this book!  I really love Calla Devlin's last book, Tell Me Something Real, so I can't wait for this book.
Geek & Sundry:
This was given to me as part of the Irish Banana Blog tour to support this book.  I read it in two days and it is wonderful.

Random House Audio:
I forgot to add this last week, but I am so excited to get an early listen to this book!  I adore Leigh Bardugo's writing, and I devoured this book in just a few days!  Thank you Random House!!!

In "Real Life":
Summer school has just ended and I will have one more week of summer before starting the regular school year.  There is lots to do to get ready, so it's not a vacation, per se.  One of the biggest things I will do in the upcoming days is wake up earlier and earlier each day, so that when school begins I will be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 5:30am!  The hardest part is going to bed early while everyone else in my house is wide awake.  Oh well...

Tell me what you are reading, so I can be envious and add those books to my TBR pile.   Enjoy any vacation you may be having!

  1. OOh nice! I enjoyed Colleen's Reawakened series! Curious about Wonder Woman though! I love Leigh's books so I suspect I will enjoy this one too! Happy Reading!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I loved the Wonder Woman book. It really went in to the backstory of Diana and had other great characters, as well. I will write a full review soon.

  2. Alex & Eliza and Wonder Woman!!!! Awesome!!!!! Hope you enjoy them I've been dying to read these!!
    -Kariny My StS!

  3. Great haul of books this week. I love listening to audiobooks while I am cleaning my apartment. I get so much done because I want to keep listening! Jealous of your early listen of Wonder Woman. Good luck getting up at 5:30 next week!

  4. A wonderful selection of books! :-) I hope that you enjoy them.

  5. Hi, new to your blog. The Reawakened book looks good.

  6. I don't even know where to start. This list looks amazing.

  7. You got some great books everyone seems to be reading Wonderwoman. Have a good week.

  8. Lovely! ^.^

    Check out my STS at El's Book Reviews! I truly appreciate it!

    Hope you have a great day!

  9. My school started last week for the teachers, so off I went. Hope you are able to get back into the swing of things!


  10. I am curious about Right Where You Left Me.

    I am reading a couple of books, one only at night (America's Queen), and The Secrets She Keeps by day.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for sharing. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  11. I wake up early, but I can’t imagine being bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 5:30. I’m usually groggy and irritable. Enjoy your new books!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  12. Seems like I need to try The Punch Escrow, based on how much other people have loved it! Hope you enjoy your other new books as much.

    My STS.

  13. I got the Punch Escrow too! I hope I like it.
