Stacking The Shelves #150 & Sunday Post #114

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!

What's Happening on the Blog:
I've been working hard on lots of reviews (why is it that so many books are released in early June?).  One ARC I really loved was Paris, 7am, by Liza Wieland.  I found the narrative style so unique and fitting for a book about poet Elizabeth Bishop.  My review will be up next week.
Reviews Last Week:


 What's Happening in "Real Life":
This week was the last week of school, both for me as a special education aide, and for my daughter who is now a high school graduate!  Because my daughter is our youngest, it's the end of an era for our family.  It's been a week full of emotion and happy tears.

New Books:
 Yes, I bought a lot of new books this week!  But, it was my birthday week, and (with the exception of We Hunt The Flame) they were on super sale on my Kindle.



For Review:


 That's it for this week.  Have a wonderful start to your summer!

    Old Follower :)

  2. I grabbed The Priory of the Orange Tree on a great sale a few weeks ago. :)

    Congrats to your daughter on her graduation!

  3. Congratulations to your daughter! And I hope you enjoy the changes that are coming to your family. It can be a difficult time, as I remember it.

    I like the sound of Paris, 7 am. I look forward to your review.

    Have a great week.

  4. Happy Birthday..it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in new books. I hope you enjoy them.

    Have a great reading week

  5. What an exciting week for you. I also got The Grace Year for review. I got The Dreamers on audio and it is different but good. It is weird how some months there are tons of books releasing and other months not so many. My May and June were jam packed and September is already filling. July is lax and I'm really happy about it. Happy reading!
