Stacking The Shelves #126 & Sunday Post #90

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:

With the last week of school being so busy, I did not have any blog posts this week!

In Real Life:

This has been an eventful past few weeks, filled with both incredible happiness and deep sorrow.  While I can't talk about the sorrow part, I will be glad to share the happy...

We are planning a trip to Ireland for our 30th wedding anniversary!!!  My husband and I have traveled in many countries over our life together, but we have never been to Ireland.  Most of our spare time has been spent pouring over guidebooks and websites looking for where we want to go.  

Have you been to Ireland?  We are spending 14 nights, there in July, so if you have an suggestions, please tell me in the comments.  I would love to know what you recommend. 

New Books:
Public Library:





Page Habit Box:
Although I think this will be a fun book to read, I was not impressed by the "extras" in the Page Habit subscription box.  There were just a few items like a colored hanging bulb, and a cheap-looking snow globe key chain.  And for that extra $20 over the retail price of the book, I could have bought a whole new novel.  Thus I have decided to cancel my subscription.
ARC Received:


That's it for this week.  I hope you enjoy the start of the summer.

  2. Thank you, Jessica. It feels so good to know that I have these books to look forward to.

  3. I’ve never been to Ireland, but it’s on my list of places I’d love to go. Have fun with the trip planning! Enjoy your new books!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  4. Both your library books are on my tbr, so I hope you enjoy them (and I do too when I get to them). :) I haven't been to Ireland. One year I want to do a European trip and then one that is to places like Ireland. I really need to visit Poland as that's where my father's side is from. I hope you enjoy your trip and your new books!

  6. I'm going to be perfectly honest, I've never had the opportunity to join a blog hop before (in result have no idea how it works) so haha congrats I guess XD

    Have a great Week!
