Sunday Post #4 and Stacking the Shelves January 26, 2014


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted  @ 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. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

Last Week on My Blog:

Looks like I made my goal of making sure I had two book reviews this week.  One is starting a series that I could use for my Prequel and Sequel Challenge, and the other is one for finishing a series, even though I wasn't blogging to review the first two in the series, so can't get full points for it.  Now something that won't actually appear on my blog, is a DNF.  I received the ARC of the 2nd book in the Patrick Carman Pulse series, so I checked out the first one to read.  I got about 100 pages in, and found it just wasn't for me.  Which is sad because I normally like Patrick Carman a lot.  But, I have so many other things to read, that I will pass on it for now.  It also means I'll be posting it on YA Book Exchange probably, and hoping that I can make a trade next time where I don't get the book stolen.  I may have to start having books sent to my work place so I know they will be safe.

This Week on My Blog:
  • Review of And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard
  • A Tuesday Meme (not sure which one yet)
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Review of:  either Light by Michael Grant or else a book by a friend's wife called:  Docket No. 76
  • Friday Meme (not sure which one yet)
  • Stacking the Shelves
The reviews will depend on what books arrive this week, and there may be one less of the memes, just depends how busy the week is.  I'm happy if I blog 6 out of 7 days, as long as 2 are reviews.


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.   Quite a bit this week!

E-galleys from Edelweiss:

Very excited for this sequel to The Lost Sun, even though not sure I like this cover much.

E-galleys from Netgalley:








I love the cover of Insanity, so spooky looking! And the 2nd one just sounds interesting as someone like me who wants to be able to run sometime.

E-novellas Purchased:







I'm really excited to read Dorothy Must Die, so when I saw this prequel, No Place Like Oz, cheap for my Nook, I had to buy it.  And then, as I said earlier, I'm normally a fan of Patrick Carman, so when I saw this prequel also available for cheap for my Nook, I bought it.

E-book Purchased:


Another really cheap e-book I found for my Nook.  And the first page even had the use of a term I've only heard my friend Kim say before, so I knew I had to buy it for cheap.

So, what are your plans for the week?  And what fun things did you add to your shelves?

  1. The first book in your haul has a very striking cover indeed and it's very noticeable. A lot of your books are new to me and am adding them to my wishlist.

    1. That's what I'm hoping for with On the Road too. Last time I really worked on losing weight I was reading a ton of weight loss memoirs, and it really helped. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. These look great! I'm looking forward to reading Dorothy Must Die. :) I've heard the prequel novella/story isn't that good, but I'm still super excited for them. :) Happy reading! My StS!

  6. Pretty cool haul! I read the novella, and liked it, even if I wasn't 100% sure of it, still will probably give a chance to Dorothy Must Die!

    1. I don't usually judge a book by its novella, unless the novella is really good, then I know I'm in for a treat! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I'm hoping that Insanity turns out to be as scary as the cover makes it out to be! Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be sure to check out your STS as well!
