Stacking the Shelves #110


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

My Life
I need to stop and take a breath after this week.  I am completely worn out.  Last Saturday, I was going non-stop all day long.  I did get to play with my niece and nephew and my daughter found her prom dress on that day so I feel like I got some things accomplished.  My daughter had a jazz performance on Wednesday and it was my turn to take her to practice on Thursday so both of those days were completely booked.  I don't know how some people balance a busy schedule on a regular basis because just a couple of days of completely packed days left me exhausted.

I am still working to catch up with comments from the days that I wasn't able to get around to everyone.  I do appreciate everyone's comments and hope to be caught up soon.

Books for Review

I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman (Bookish First)

I have actually never read a Gayle Forman book before but I have heard great things about her work.  I had enough points to claim a copy when it was on offer from Bookish First a couple of weeks ago.  I am really looking forward to reading this one very soon.

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!

  2. I honestly don't know where you get the energy from Carole. I get tired just reading about what you do in a week!

    1. I don't do as much as a lot of people. It can be hard to juggle everything at times.

  7. Ooh, exhausting weeks are the worst! Hang in there...

    I am curious about I Have Lost My Way...Gayle Forman is a relatively new author that I am loving.

    In your sidebar, I'm drawn to Sometimes I Lie.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. It sometimes seems so rude that so many things out of my control are planned for the same week. This week should be less busy.

  8. Wow! You found the dress pretty quickly. That's awesome! It's been so long since I had full-time moming to do, but I remember it being quite tiring. I love Gayle Forman. I am very excited to see that this book is coming up soon on my spreadsheet. I hope you enjoy it.

    1. Full time job and full time moming can be exhausting. I am trying to enjoy these last few years with a kid in school

  11. Yes, just a few days that are jam packed and I'm begging for mercy. Hope you had a quieter weekend. I've heard good things about Gayle Forman books, too, but not read one. Hope you like it.

    1. It is amazing how some weeks are scheduled so completely.

  12. I hate when my days are packed, especially on weekends. I'd much rather have one or two little things to do on a Saturday than an entire day's worth of stuff. Also, be prepared, Gayle Foreman books tend to make readers cry. ;)

    1. I get crabby when I have too much going on. Uh oh...I don't like to cry.

  14. Does sound exhausting. I hope you're taking time to relax for a bit so you can recharge. Yay for finding a prom dress! That's exhausting in and of itself. I've heard good things about Gayle Forman too so I'm looking forward to seeing your thoughts. Have a great week!

    1. Our busy season is really in the fall but some weeks do tend to get overscheduled throughout the year.

  16. Love your book haul this week. I hope you have a good week in reading. I just got back in my home after a week of no power so I am behind in things. Have a good week. =)

  18. Hope you get a chance to slow down soon. I've not read Gayle Forman either so you are certainly not the only one.

    1. I am thinking that this week should be a bit better. Two crazy weeks in a row is way too much for me.

  19. LOL yeah people who can do that ALL the time are beyond me. I can have a busy day or two then I need a day or two to recover. lol Hope you're having a quieter one this week!

  20. I know what you mean! Busy days and a packed schedule can be so exhausting and I am not sure how some people keep so busy all the days of the year all the time. I hope you get to have a bit of a breather next week. I haven't read a Gayle Foreman novel before either.
