The Sunday Post (61) / Stacking the Shelves (40)

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.

Hi all! I started watching a new jdrama called Bitter Blood and it’s so so good. I’m not a big crime fan whether it be books or TV shows (violence is something I can’t really stomach well), but there’s something about the drama that is making me enjoy it. I pretty much watched it for Sato Takeru at first, but I am loving the small humor that’s been popping up. I hope you had a good week.

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.

I didn’t get too many books this week because I’m still waiting on the library to process some of the books I really want to read like Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman and What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick. Mostly this week the library decided that it loves me and sent me ebooks emails instead. I love getting ebook notice emails. Yes, I’m sort of a geek.

Ebooks from the Library:
Fates by Lanie Bross
The Chance You Won’t Return by Annie Cardi
Pretty Sly by Elisa Ludwig

  1. That’s so awesome that you can borrow eBooks from your library. Glad to hear you found a jdrama to watch and enjoy!

    1. Yes, it is awesome to be able to borrow ebooks from the library. It definitely help saved me a ton of money on books especially if you’re on a budget. I totally recommend Bitter Blood if you enjoy watching jdramas. 🙂

  2. Our local library thinks technology means having 3 old computers that barely work and the last vampire book they got in on paperback was Twilight! I don’t even go there now. As for TV well I’ve hundreds of videotapes of shows I want to see but I don’t have the time to watch them coz of my huge tbr! I’m a hopeless case! Enjoy your books!

    1. Oh no! I hope your library updates their catalog soon. You can always make a suggestion to them what you want to read. Yeah, it’s seems to be books vs tv. Too bad there’s no way of multitasking both of the these things at once. My TBR pile is also huge, but it’s nice to catch up on the shows as a break between books.

  3. I am a weird librarian who doesn’t use libraries to get access to books. I buy or get review copies for almost everything I read. I don’t like having a deadline to read and return a book. Come see what I got this week at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

    I love getting those emails from my library too, so you’re not the only “sort of geek” out there. 🙂 I need to catch up on Mercy Thompson series-I used to read them the moment they were published, but I’ve slacked off. I hope you have a great week and happy reading!

    1. Kat and Jackie, nothing gets my morning started right then an email at 4AM from my library saying a book that I put on hold has come in. I start plotting in my head how quickly I can get there and rescue it from the shelves!

      1. Definitely! Getting book emails is the best thing. Sometimes my library calls me to let me know that I have a book or DVD that needs to be picked up (if I request for a physical copy) as soon as they get it, but they’re nice to send me an email in case I miss their call.

    2. Yay! I’m glad I’m not the only one geeking out about it. 😀 I haven’t read any of the Mercy Thompson series, but Kim seems to really enjoy them. I hope you are able to catch up on the series soon.

  5. Oh I love getting ebook emails too, especially when I have to wait a while before it’s my turn to borrow it! Happy reading! 🙂

    1. It’s definitely a nice surprise to get one. Sometimes I might forget that I placed a hold on the ebooks so it makes my day to see them in my inbox. 🙂

  6. You know, I was so looking forward to Fates (and was going to buy it) but then the reviews started coming in and yeah, put me off it. But, definitely going to try it if I can find it cheap somewhere along the way. 🙂 Happy reading!

    Here’s mine

  7. Hope you’re enjoying Three and have a great week. Off to read your Musings post…

    1. So far Three is pretty interesting. I can’t wait to see how everything is going to wrap up. I hope you have a great week as well. 🙂

  8. pretty sly looks freakin’ awesome!!! I can’t wait to see what you think of it.
