Stacking the Shelves #153


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 pretty normal week.  It was my turn to take my daughter to her jazz ground on Monday night which put me behind on comments and I still haven't been able to catch up.  One highlight for the week was receiving a letter announcing that my daughter had been awarded a nice scholarship.  We both worked really hard getting everything together for this scholarship and it feels really good to be rewarded for the effort. 

Right now, St. Louis is in the middle of a snowstorm so my plans are to stay in and get some reading done. 

Books Added


Recursion by Blake Crouch (NetGalley)
Cowboy, Cross My Heart by Donna Grant (Purchase)
The Passage by Justin Cronin (Audible Freebie)

I added one review book this week.  My first ARC of 2019!  Anyway, the premise of Recursion was just too good not to request.  I had a credit to use on Amazon so I decided to pick up Cowboy, Cross My Heart since I loved the first book from the series.  I love it when something from my wishlist is offered for free.  I was excited when I saw the audiobook for The Passage offered for free on Audible.  http://www.audible.com/passage


I did a little shopping at Book Outlet during their Boxing Day sale.  Take a look at all of the beautiful books I added to my shelves.

  3. Congrats on the scholarship! We’re having a snowstorm, too. I planned on running 3 miles yesterday, but the snow piled up too quickly, so I stayed inside and read. Have a great week!

  5. Congrats for your daughter! That's awesome! And omg, this snow is a killer! Driving home was a nightmare yesterday and I even got to leave a little early. Basically when the whole mess was starting. The lane to get on the highway from my work was backed up two whole stoplights, so I made a quick Uie to go in the opposite direction, though I didn't know where I was going exactly and my GPS took FOREVER to find a signal! But I made it home in under an hour when normally my drive is like 10-15 minutes.

    Nice new reads! Hope you enjoy them all and have a nice reading day on this snowy day!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  15. So awesome about the scholarship. You can never have too many of those. We get 4.5 inches of snow yesterday. I think we're done for a bit though. I hope you get dug out soon.
