Stacking The Shelves #125 & Sunday post #89

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!

Tuesday:  Book Review:  The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

I just couldn't get the writing thing going this week.  But I was very happy to review this amazing book.  I got it in my April Pagehabit box, and it was a lovely surprise.

In "Real Life":

I had one more major health appointment this week, and I am finally in the clear!!!  I spent the rest of the week relieved and treating myself to reading as much as possible!

I also got to attend my book club at A Great Good Place for Books, in Oakland.  We discussed the book The 57 Bus by Dashka Slater. This book had so much relevance for many of the book club members as the incident in this book happened in Oakland.  What a thoughtful, great group of fellow readers!
