Stacking The Shelves # 121 & Sunday Post #85

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 seeing everyone's version of these features!   All book covers are linked to Goodreads, if you want to check them out.  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! 

On The Blog:
I've been pretty busy with work, so I haven't done much blogging lately.  I will try to write more on the weekends, so I don't get stressed out about posting. I still feel that I have a lot to say about books, and I hope you will want to read what I want to write about.

Tuesday:  Audio ARC Review:  The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea

I really admire this author and absolutely LOVED this book.  The audio book is narrated by the author, himself, which added much to my understanding of the text.

In "Real Life":
This week has been very stressful due to a health scare.  Thank goodness all is resolved and I am doing well.  But I have not wanted to do much beyond sleep.

I did manage to participate in a book club sponsored by the wonderful bookstore named A Great Good Place For Books, in Oakland.  We were discussing Hum If You Don't Know The Words, by Bianca Marais.  We had a great talk with some really interesting people.  Next month, we will read, The 57 Bus by Dashka Slater.

That's it for this week.  Thank you for reading this.  Have an amazing week!

  2. OOh nice! Kill the Farm Boy is one I want to read! Love the two authors solo so one where they write together would be awesome! Sounds like a fun read too! Hope you enjoy all the new reads!

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

    Have a GREAT day!
