Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post

Hi everyone {waves} thank-you so much for stopping by!!

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

It's a chance to share what has happened the past week, showcase books and other bookish things we have received and talk about what is coming up on our blog.

  1. Yay! I want to read The Truth about Faking, Crash and The Evolution of Mara Dyer so bad. Glad you have them, looking forward to your reviews :) Happy reading!

    Siiri @ Little Pieces of Imagination

  2. Wow so many choices, The Truth about Faking sounds really good. Happy reading.

  4. Oooh very nice! I feel like the only one who won't be getting Iced! I preorder it in advance then yesterday I received emails telling me my order which was Iced and one other release were being DELAYED! For no viable reason really, I think it said something like the release date changing, which is a joke! Then some hours later I get an email that says they shipped. So they won't be here until NEXT week!

    It's all very infuriating! This is what I get for trying to save money by preordering for 30%+ off! :)

    Hope you enjoy all your reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  5. I need to read Crossed. And the first Mara Dyer book. A lot of really good books, and I can completely relate to having busy weeks... Happy reading!

    I don't have a book haul this week, but I do have a giveaway if you want to check it out.

  6. Wow so many great books! I'm jealous that you got Iced. It sounds awesome! And so many other great books too: The Perfect Game, Crash, Clash.. yay! I hope you enjoy them all. :)

  7. Wow, you've got Reached? That's pretty cool! This haul is AWESOME! :D

  8. What a terrific stack of things to read! I don't know how you're going to pick where to start (on the non-have-to reads). I picked up Iced this week too but I have no idea when I'm going to get to it. Ugh, backlog.

    I can't wait to hear what you think about Gravity - I'm still trying to decide if I should take the plunge or not. I have one friend who says yes, one who says maybe not.

  9. I should really pick up my copy of Reached soon. I absolutely loved Matched and I thought Crossed was okay. The ending was such a cliffhanger though! I'm excited to read The Evolution of Mara Dyer as I absolutely adored the first book! It was so much better than I thought it would be.

    Thanks so much for sharing what you got this week! :D

  10. Very nice haul. I didn't get books this week since I live in NYC and I had Hurricane Sandy happen.


  11. Looking forward to your reviews on this!

    Kristen @OCA

    NOAH SHAW. Gawd.

  15. I so need to read the Evolution of Mara! Hehe, I got RUA this week as well. OMG, Crash & Clash sounds AMAZING. I can't wait to read your reviews on those. Happy reading Sharon!

  16. Nice haul

    I've already put The Evolution of Myer Dyer on to my Wish List and I've found out about Iced earlier today. (If anybody knows whether this is a book that can be read by a male, I'd be interested to find out).

    Enjoy your reads.

    Please check out my latest haul at

  17. I want to start reading Tempting the Player, I'm sure I will love it, since it's JLA's book. Enjoy all your books, have a great week!

  24. Wow that is a lot of books! I didn't know the third book of the Matched series was out, I was so disappointed in Crossed, so I will read reviews before I decode. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Have a great week!

  25. I am so jealous of you for getting Reached for review! Gah! You're so lucky :) Great week for you!
