Stacking the Shelves #169

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

My Life
Things have gotten busier at my house.  I have a feeling that the month of May is going to be pretty crazy.  Last Sunday, my daughter performed with her jazz ensemble at a fundraising concert for her school.  On Wednesday, we attended the band awards ceremony.  It was wonderful to watch my daughter's hard work being recognized.  On Friday, my daughter attended her senior prom.  It is really all coming to an end.
Reading has been pretty slow for me but I have had some luck with audiobooks.  I did get my posts up this past week but I was terrible when it came to commenting.  I am really sorry and hope to do better moving forward.

Books Added
The Flight Girls by Noelle Salazar (Publisher)
The Passengers by John Marrs (Publisher)

I am pretty excited about both of the books that found a spot in my mailbox this week.  They both sound really good and I can't wait to start reading both books.

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!


  1. What a beautiful dress choice! I love black and red together. Don't worry about comments Carole-it has been a tough and busy few weeks for you so we all understand!

  2. I hope your daughter enjoyed her prom? I've never been to one because the idea hadn't been adopted in the UK when I was at school. The end of term disco wasn't quite the same!

  3. Oh your daughter looked beautiful! Hope she had a great time.Enjoy your books, don't worry about commenting and have a great week!!

  4. I love your daughter's dress. She looked beautiful!

  5. Ahhh, all the end of the school year events. Glad to see she was rewarded for her music efforts and her gown is lovely.
    Nice that you are seeing a return to your mojo, too. Always nice to get some book pretties in the mail. :)

    Have a great week, Carole!

  6. I love the dress! I hope she had fun at all of her events.

  11. Prom! Crazy how time flies :)

  12. Oh, your daughter and her dress are lovely. 💜

    It is a melancholy time when high school ends for our kids. I miss going to concerts and musicals. I hope your daughter is continuing on with her music. My son completely dropped performing when he went to college. 🎼

    Have a wonderful week. 🌞

  13. Your daughter looks so pretty! Hope she enjoys the prom! When it's busy the only reading I can squeeze in is audio books, too. Hope things calm down for you, Carole. :)

  14. That's a beautiful gown - and a beautiful daughter. I hope she had fun. I hope May isn't so busy you don't find time to do some of your favorite things!

  15. That's a beautiful dress! I hope your daughter had fun at her prom and that the recital went well :)
