Stacking The Shelves and Sunday Post

This meme is hosted by Tynga over at Team Tynga's Reviews, which she describes as follows:

"Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!"

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

You know it's Spring spend five days a week shuttling the kids to their extra-curricular activities! One of my kids is in Soccer and the other is in Ultimate, and they each have two practices and two games each week! It's a lot of running around. Thankfully, this is only until the end of June. The weather has been warm, so at least it's nice to sit outside watching them least until the mosquitoes arrive!

If you missed it earlier, I have ARCs to swap. Check out MY POST to see if there's anything there that you'd like to read. If so, please let me know! I'd love to trade with someone. I will be adding to it once I have a chance to dig through boxes and bookshelves.

I downloaded these FREEBIES on Audible (for the first two, if you download the free Kindle book on Amazon first, then the audiobook price comes up as $0.00):

The Age of Innocence
by Edith Wharton

The Beautiful and Damned
by F. Scott Fitzgerald

A Rare Book of Cunning Device
by Ben Aaronovitch
(Peter Grant/Rivers of London #5.6)

Thanks Audible!!

Recap: Last Week On The Blog

Sunday: Stacking the Shelves and Sunday Post

What books have you added to your shelves this week? If you are also participating in either of these memes, please leave me the link to your blog post in the comments so that I can come and drool over all your goodies!


  1. I have no idea what Ultimate is, but that sounds exhausting! Good luck! The Beautiful and Damned looks really interesting! Have a great week :D

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

    1. Ultimate is also known as Ultimate Frisbee. I had no idea it was actually a sport! Who knew?!

  2. I love listening to audio books as I do my work around the house! Those books are great choices. Have fun reading them.

    1. Thank you!! I listen while doing chores as well. It helps to make the big jobs, like cutting the grass and shoveling snow, more fun!

  3. Glad your kids are getting back into extracurricular activities!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and join in this week’s Book Photo Sundays!

    1. Me, too. It's busy, but they are having fun!

  4. That Ben Aaronovitch title might be just enough to actually join Audible.

    1. I'm not familiar with the series, but it does sound good! I'll have to find the first one in the series.

  5. Oh I remember Spring when my kids were younger. Every day carpooling and weekends for games. Good times, I miss my son's Rugby games. Have a wonderful week!

  6. I remember those days. I had to run my son and my nephew all over for after school events. I kind of miss it now that they've grown. Some nice looking new books. I've been enjoying some audibles too.

    My Sunday Post

    1. I agree, the time passes too quickly. It's busy now, but I want to enjoy it too!
