Sunday Post (33) / Stacking the Shelves (13)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Hello,

It’s October! And I have the urge to bake apple and pumpkin desserts. If only I wasn’t so lazy…haha. Been sneaking in books and t.v around my classes., otherwise nothing too interesting this week.  The leaves are changing colours, and everything looks so pretty (: Only thing is it’s starting to get chilly haha. Hope everyone’s having a lovely autumn so far!

STSmall_thumb25255B225255DStacking the Shelves post! Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, Stacking the Shelves is a chance to showcase new books, ones checked out from the library, bought, won or received for review.

 

Avalon - Mindee Arnett(01) Avalon by Mindee Arnett

Thanks to Balzer & Bray & Edelweiss! I didn’t even know Mindee Arnett had a new series coming out! I enjoyed The Nightmare Affair, so I figured I’d give this a try too. I’ve been feeling kinda sci-fi-y. Also, the cover is badass, I wouldn’t resist.

Pawn - Aimee Carter(02) Pawn by Aimee Carter

Thanks to Harlequin Teen & Netgalley! Like I mentioned in my WoW, I totally caved when this should up on Netgalley haha. I’m happy I got approved for this! Can’t wait to check it, the advance reviews have me intrigued.

Entwined - Kristin Callihan(03) Entwined by Kristin Callihan

Thanks to Forever & Netgalley! Hallelujah! Something to tied me over while I wait for Shadowdance! I’m going a little stir-crazy waiting for it. This sounds like such a cute read (I love pen pal stories!) and this cover, soooo gorgeous or what!?

My Ex From Hell - Tellulah Darling(04) My Ex From Hell Tellulah Darling

Thanks to AToMR Tours. I’ve started this book already and it’s pretty funny. It’s been a while since I’ve done mythology but this is a good reminder of why I enjoy it (: In case you’re wonder Sophie’s date is really from Hell (literally) since he’s Hades’ son aha.

My Date From Hell - Tellulah Darling(05) My Date From Hell Tellulah Darling

(Thanks again AToMR) Oh, book 2! I’m doing both for the tour. Book 2 is released OCT 31, just in time for Halloween. Hopefully this one is just as fun as the first so far!

  1. Ha, I think about baking two and then I get caught up in a book or blogging and …LOL Entwined looks so good, awesome haul Cyn, have a lovely week!

    1. Just gotta remember, if I bake, it means I have yummy snacks for when I`m reading haha I`m so excited for Entwined!.

  2. Christy @ Love of Books says: Reply

    I’m not a fan of the cooler weather, but I do love October. Great haul!

    1. me either, but I love the colours. Thanks for stopping by (:

  3. Have you tried President’s Choice’s Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream? It’s pretty good lol. Definitely helps to satisfy the pumpkin cravings.

    Ah! The My Ex from and My Date from Hell looks interesting! I am a fan of mythology in books, hopefully it’s good! The last mythology-related book I read was Gods Behaving Badly and that was a lot of fun.

    Have a nice week!

    1. No I haven`t but that does sound yummy! I just found a sweet pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust that has me drooling, might need to make that haha.

      It`s pretty cute so far! I just started the second one and I`m still enjoying it.

    1. Thanks! I`m excited to start haha.

  4. I got Pawn this week too. It looks amazing 😀

    My Stacking the Shelves

    1. Awesome, hope you enjoy it!

  5. I’m hanging out for Shadowdance too. I hope Entwined lives up to it’s promise. Here’s my Sunday Post

    1. I want Shadowdance soooo badly haha.. I`m really excited to start Entwined!

    1. I’m excited for it! Thanks for stopping by (:

  6. I am almost finished with Pawn, about 70% down on the kindle and so far I am loving it. Has elements of other dystopian books I enjoyed; like The Selection, Legend, Divergent and The Declaration but also provides something new and unique to the genre. It’s really great so I hope you get to read it soon.

    My STS

    1. Yay, glad to hear (that you’re enjoying it and that there’s some uniqueness)! It’s pretty high on my TBR list since it comes out late November. I do really enjoy Divergent haha.

  7. I can’t wait to hear your thought about Finders Keepers – I have it on my Kindle, but I’m not sure about it.

    Great haul this week, I’m excited for Pawn, looks like interesting book.

    Glass @ Way Too Hot Books

    1. I really enjoyed it, maybe possibly more than Lost & Found, or rather i enjoyed it for different reasons. I skipped over Near & Far but I’ll get back to it at some point haha. I should hopefully have a review for it up soon.

  8. ok – I just completely snorted my coffee when I saw the “How Not to Be A Dick”. Some titles just don’t need explanations – but … childrens? Dang.
    I’m curious about the From Hell series – I’ve been debating picking that one up…
    Nice haul – happy reading

    1. heheee. The title is definitely eye-catching. Yeah.. I wouldn’t recommend this to children, definitely more for teenagers/young adult.
      It’s pretty cute so far! I just started book 2. I should have reviews for them up sometime…haha.

  9. Looks like a productive week for you, well done!

    1. I’m hoping I’ll be more productive next week haha.

  10. Nice assortment! I just got Pawn. It will be on next week’s StS post. Come see what I got this week at Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

    1. Yay! Hope you enjoy it, I’m excited to start!

    SP & STS
    Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

    1. Awesome! I’m excited to start it. Hope you enjoy it too!

  12. i saw avalon on edelweiss but i didn’t request it because it’s an out of the box read for me. it does sound interesting though so i just might… awesome sts 🙂

    hope you can stop by my StS.

    -michelle @ Michelle & Leslie’s Book Picks

    1. The cover enticed me haha. Also, the synopsis tells me “a great match for fans of Joss Whedon’s cult hit show Firefly” which I’m a fan of too (:

  13. Ha, I have dug out all the pumpkin recipes I can find. My husband will be tired of it all soon enough. lol… Enjoy your new books.

    Jenea @ Books Live Forever’s Sunday Post

    1. Please feel free to send me any extra my way 😉

  14. Oh, I got Pawn this week too. I can’t wait to get started. And I also become addicted to pumpkin and apple. Thankfully I went to the orchard this weekend and got some cider and donuts! Enjoy your books!

    My STS

    1. Me too (about Pawn)! and also about the pumpkins and apples haha. It’s so hard to resist apple or pumpkin desserts. Yum cider!

  15. Pawn sounds awesome! And I really enjoyed Tellulah Darling’s book Sam Cruz’s Infallible Guide to Getting Girls.

    1. Glad to hear, I haven’t read that one yet but I’m really enjoying the -From Hell series.

  16. I love Fall but not the temperature. I’m looking forward to doing some baking myself for the holidays.

    1. I only like fall weather when it’s on the warmer side aha. But I do love all pretty colours and fun desserts that go with fall (:

  17. Entwined has a great cover…not my genre though. Hope you’ll enjoy it!

  18. I saw Avalon on edelwiss too but I am waiting for some reviews to come out before making up my mind. 🙂
    Great haul and happy reading 😀

  19. I can’t wait to read Pawn; I’ll be starting it this week.
    My Ex From Hell and My Date From Hell looks supper cute, especially with those adorable covers! :D<3
    Enjoy all your lovely books & thanks for stopping by my STS! (:
