I am really excited to participate in Stacking the Shelves, a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.
This was such a busy week. On Saturday, my daughter got to perform as part of a trombone trio at the state level. Her group achieved the highest rating of 1. She had a busy week with her final band concert of the year plus lots of other things to get done. She finished this week by going to the prom. I spent my week dress shopping, shoe shopping, and helping her get ready for the big day. I am glad that she is having such a good time but I am really ready for life to slow down a bit....I have books to read!
The One Man by Andrew Gross (NetGalley)
You Had One Job by Beverly L. Jenkins (NetGalley)
Since She Went Away by David Bell (First to Read)
The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman (First to Read)
Catch Me by Jennifer Probst (Amazon Freebie)
Forgotten Promises by Jessica Lemmon (Won - Thanks Lisa @ Tasty Book Tours)
I have been pretty good at resisting new books lately...until this week. I have read and enjoyed Andrew Gross in the past so I thought I would check out his new book, The One Man, when I saw it on NetGalley. I already read through You Had One Job and laughed so hard that I crying over a couple of the pages. I was thrilled to see David Bell's new book being offered on First to Read so I snatched it up along with The Invisible Library. I am really excited to win Forgotten Promises from Lisa @ Tasty Book Tours. Thanks, Lisa!
|Book Fair Finds|
After my daughter and I found her prom dress, we had to check out the book fair going on in the parking garage. It was the last day of the fair so there weren't as many books there anymore but I still found a few to add to my shelf. My daughter found two bags of books for herself so we did pretty good at the book fair.
|Dollar Store Finds|
My daughter and I also stopped in the local Dollar Tree to pick up a couple of Mother's Day cards. Happy Mother's Day to everyone. While we took the required quick tour of the store, we found an entire section of books. I just looked at her and told her to go and get a cart as soon as I saw the Jill Shalvis book. My daughter picked up a similar sized pile of books so we did pretty good at the dollar store as well.
I actually received this last week but forgot to include it in my post. They say that your memory is the first thing to go. I won these cool signed books, stickers, and tattoo from Jenny Manzer (author) and Shane @Itching for Books. Thanks, Jenny & Shane!
What books do you add to your shelves this week?
