Stacking the Shelves #67

I am really excited to participate in Stacking the Shelves, a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews

What a week!  I have a feeling that things are going to be very busy for the next few weeks until school lets out for the year.  My daughter had a jazz band event all day Sunday.  It was nice but really exhausting.  I had a migraine that started on Sunday and didn't leave me for a couple of days so I fell a bit behind with reading and blogging.  I didn't even pick up a book Monday and decided to watch Finding Dorie on Netflix instead - it was cute!   I took the day off from work on Thursday to go to a Cardinals baseball game with some of my husband, oldest daughter, and her friend.  It ended up being a really exciting game.  We also found out today that my daughter was selected to be one of the drum majors for her high school marching band.  She is very excited.

Digital Books

Wildfire by Ilona Andrews (Edelweiss)

Guys...I got an Ilona Andrews arc!  I squealed at my desk when I got the email just like a little kid.  I started reading it right away and absolutely loved it. 

Print Books
My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space
by Lisa Scottoline & Francesca Serritella (Author Pre-Order Gift)

Lisa Scottoline had an amazing offer of a free book for anyone who pre-ordered her latest book, One Perfect Lie.  I enjoy these humorous books that she writes with her daughter and am looking forward to reading it.  I have taken Lisa Scottoline up on this offer a few times so keep it in mind if you ever find yourself pre-ordering one of her books.

Back to Your Love by Kianna Alexander (Won @ Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell)

I was thrilled to learn that I won a copy of Back to Your Love from Blodeuedd @ Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell.  It looks like a good story and it is the first in a new series.  Thank you!

Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner (Blogging for Books)

I am really excited to read this book and may try to fit it in this weekend.  My daughter just found out that this author is going to be stopping by her school in the next week or two so I may be able to get it signed which would make it even better :)

What books do you add to your shelves this week? 
Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave a link to your own STS post!

  17. I've read most of My Next Husband Will Be a Dog by Lisa Scottoline and her daughter and have never laughed so hard in my life. I've only read one Ilona Andrews book but I did like it. So glad you got a copy of this new one!

  18. I'm excited for the Andrew's series. I guess they have arc's for both books 2&3 so I was confused lol I need to check that whole thing out so I don't miss them when they come out.

    For What It's Worth

  19. I just picked up Goodbye Days! I saw you have a review posted I'm gonna have to go check it out, because it looks like a good heart wrenching kid of read.

  20. I hope you're enjoying these, CArole!

  21. I still haven't watched Finding Dory yet, but I want to! And it's okay to have those days where you don't even read anything at all! I also am so curious about the new book by Jeff Z! I see you have a review of it already, so I'll be checking it out.
