Sunday Post (47) / Stacking the Shelves (27)

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.

Ahoy,

It’s finally warming up! I’m so happy. Been working at the uni bookstore since it’s the start of season. Still doing book club. I think we decided on Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill for our next read (: Otherwise, nothing too interesting with me.

 BOOK HAUL

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.

IMG_2577(01) The Rook by Daniel O’Malley
(02) Banquet of Lies by Michelle Diener

Two from the library. I grabbed The Rook since both Kim & Jess (of The Reading Nook Reviews) were telling me how awesome it was and it definitely sounds awesome, so why not! And Banquet of Lies finally showed up the library, so I grabbed that too!

Sixteen Thing I Thought Were True - Janet GurtlerThe Art of Lainey - Paula Stokes(01) 16 Things I Thought Were True by Janet Gurtler
(02) The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes

Thanks Sourcebooks Fire/Netgalley & Harper Teen/Edelweiss. I finally got approved for #16thingIthoughtweretrue and I’m so excited to read it! It just sounds so cute. Harper Collins just put out a ton of books on Edelweiss, so far I’ve only decided to grab The Art of Lainey, but I think there’s a few I might cave and snag soon anyway.

Hopeless - Colleen Hoover(03) Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Thanks Kimba (of Caffeinated Book Reviewer) for letting me know that this was free for Kindle! I snagged this last week, but I forgot about it haha. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while, definitely been hearing lots of good things (:
