Stacking the Shelves #97


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

I spent last Saturday at the auditions for the All State Honor Band.  My daughter did not get a spot in the band but it was a good experience.  Unfortunately, by the time I made it home, I wasn't feeling too well.  By Sunday, whatever illness I picked up had hit me full force.  I took a sick day Monday but I have been dragging all week.  I think I am closer to being my normal self now which is a very good thing.

On Wednesday, we went to the holiday band concert which was nice. On Friday, my husband and I celebrated our anniversary.  (Ok, celebrated may be going too far...we had an anniversary and stayed home and acted like we normally do would be more accurate). I am looking forward to a little bit of quiet time this weekend when I am not taxiing my child around the city.

Books Purchased/Free
The Black Tide by Keri Arthur (Kindle Purchase)
The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak (Kindle Freebie)
Wolf Hunt by Paige Tyler (Kindle Freebie)

I didn't add any review books to the pile which is a very good thing.  I did pre-order The Black Tide by Keri Arthur.  I loved the first book in the trilogy and liked the second one so I am pretty excited to read the conclusion.  I picked up The Heartbreakers and Wolf Hunt as kindle freebies this week. 


What books do you add to your shelves this week?

  5. Eek! Getting sick sucks! Hope you're on the mend now! Happy belated Anniversary!

    Nice new reads!! Sadly I couldn't get into this series by Keri. I wanted to love it but I just felt disconnected from it all. Hope you enjoy this one! I thought I heard it was the finale but can't be sure!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. Oh man! Bummer you were under the weather all week. Maybe you guys can go out for your anniversary when things slow down.

    I grabbed the Heartbreakers freebie. Hope you enjoy Wolf Hunt though I would recommend starting with the beginning of the series if you can. Love the series.

    Feel better, Carole, and have a good next week. :)

  10. I totally just went and grabbed The Heartbreakers (thanks!). I had enjoyed the Walter Boys, and they have the book on Hoopla, but I would rather read it on my paperwhite.

  16. Glad to hear your feeling better! Being sick is never any fun, especially when it lasts over an entire week. And congrats on your anniversary :) After seeing so many people feature Ali Novak's books in their STS I went and downloaded it. I've been wanting to read her books for a while now. Have a great week, Carole!
