Stacking the Shelves #111


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

My Life
This was a much better week.  I didn't have too many extra things to try to squeeze into my schedule.  I did have an eye appointment and ordered a new pair of glasses and contacts.  On Friday night, my daughter performed in her school's variety show with her jazz ensemble.  Other than that, it was my normal schedule of work, household chores, blogging and reading.

Books for Review
Cowboy Bold by Carolyn Brown (Publisher)
The Secret Ingredient for a Happy Marriage by Shirley Jump (Publisher)
Sandpiper Shore by Debbie Mason (Publisher)

I was thrilled to get a surprise package this week with these three books from Forever (Grand Central Publishing).  I am really looking forward to reading all of these!

Marek by Sawyer Bennett (NetGalley)
Nights at Seaside by Addison Cole (Author)

I always enjoy Sawyer Bennett's Cold Fury Hockey series so I downloaded Marek as soon as I saw it listed on NetGalley.  I have been saying how I to read Melissa Foster's work so I am eager to listen to one of her books written under the name Addison Cole.

Books Purchased
Illuminae, Gemina, and Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I added these beauties to my collection this week because I am planning to attend the book signing for Obsidio tonight.  I cannot wait! 

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!

  5. I was so excited to see Marek on NG, and JUMPED on it. I was even more excited to get immediately approved. I think his story is going to be fabulous. The last book had me wanting it right away. I hope you have fun at the Obsidio event. Kaufman and Kristoff were as funny and charming as I had hoped. I laughed so much!

    1. I am auto-approved for Loveswept so I downloaded Marek right away. For some reason, Reed, was always hidden from me so I couldn't get a copy of the last book in the series. The Obsidio event was a whole lot of fun!

  7. Have fun at the signing! I read Illuminae last month, and while I didn't love it, I still thought it was good. I think I'll buy the whole series in paperback at a later date. They're too heavy as hardcovers.

  16. I need to go to the eye doctor. I dislike it but I'm almost out of contacts! Glad this week was a bit calmer and great book haul! I really want to try Sawyer Bennett and Addison Cole. I didn't realize she was Melissa Foster. Have a great week!

    1. I don't really like going either. It is expensive and takes forever. My eyes have really been bothering me so it was time. How I wish I had my younger eyes back!
