In the Stacks (10)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer It is a chance to share news.  A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on your blog for the week ahead.

I am also linking up with Tynga’s Reviews and sharing what I added to my stacks in the past week.

The Personal

My husband graduated from Law School this weekend! The weekend (and week leading up to it) contained lots of family time with his parents who came down from Connecticut. I am so happy and proud.

Last Week

Shucked by Megg Jensen Blitz with a giveaway. There are still a few days to enter and win one eBook copy of Shucked by Megg Jensen.

Release Day Reads May 7th edition. I talked about a few new books for this week like The 5TH Wave by Rick Yancey and Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris.

Waiting On Wednesday feature of Mermaid In Chelsea Creek by Michelle Tea. It has an amazing cover and there is a plane Jane who may be the answer to an ailing town.

I shouted my love for Rick Riordan and The Lost Hero. Even if you don’t read my review, please start this series right now. It is wonderful and you will love it.

Next Week

Blog Tour and Giveaway for Wide Awake by Shelly Crane.

Review of Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon.

Top Ten Tuesday will feature books dealing with tough subjects.

Waiting On Wednesday feature (you will have to wait on that one, see what I did there?)

Review of Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland.

  1. Looks like we have similar tastes. All of your new books are on my stack too. Please come see what I got at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

    • It really was impossible to resist picking up The 5TH Wave. I hope you enjoy it as much as I expect to. 🙂

  2. Great week! Congrats to the hubby! That’s a huge accomplishment! The 5th Wave is definitely one on my TBR list. Hopefully I’ll get around to it eventually!

    • Thank you so much! It was such a wonderful weekend.

      As soon as I am finished reading my present for review book, I am starting The 5TH Wave. I have been looking forward to it for months and hope it is good.

  3. Congrats on you Husbands graduation! Enjoy your Sunday and your new books.

    Ink has a very neat cover; I hope the book is as good as the cover.

  6. It looks like you’ve got three great books! I’ve heard some really good things for all of them – and am looking forward to reading Ink and Dead Ever After soon (they’re in my tbr pile). I hope you enjoy all three of them.

    • Thanks a lot! I am bracing myself for Dead Ever After because the last few Sookie Stackhouse books have not been the greatest. I just hope the story gets wrapped up nicely.

      • Yeah, I’m a little nervous about reading it. Especially with the rumours floating around the net which I’ve been trying to avoid so I don’t get spoiled but…It will certainly be a tense read.

        I meant to say in my original comment congratulations to your husband. Graduating from Law School must have been hard work for both of you (though in different ways). I hope you both had/have fun celebrating!

        • Thanks so much!

          I hate when a really anticipated book comes out and I know people are going to feel strongly about it all over the internet. I like to be spoiler free and come to my own conclusion. Can be difficult sometimes to avoid it.

  7. I really want to read The 5th wave! Sounds like a great story. Happy reading and congratulations with your husbands graduation! 🙂

  8. The 5th Wave has caught my eye, but I’m so behind here I can’t pick up any more books…for a while anyway. 😉

    Hope you love your books this week. Have a good one.

    If you’d like to stop by, I have a Sunday Post up as well:

    • I really did not need to pick-up any new books but just couldn’t resist. Am really behind in review books but it happens. 🙂
