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

It's been a tough week. One of my favourite uncles passed away on Thursday night, and my mom called me this morning to let me know that another uncle passed away earlier this morning. So, lots of sadness. Unfortunately, there's going to be a lot of that in the coming years because most of my aunts and uncles are over 80. I cannot even think about my own parents' mortality 😢

This is the Amazon Whispersync deal of the month. If you purchase the Kindle book for $0.00, you can add the Audible purchase for $0.00:

The Man Who Knew Too Much
by G.K. Chesterton

 Have you all been taking advantage of the FREE audiobooks that SYNC has been offering? I love this program! Each week during the summer, there is a new pair of audiobooks up for grabs and you need to download them before the new pair is up which takes place every Thursday at 7:00 AM EST. The pairing consists of a newer YA book with a classic or non-fiction title, and it's based on a weekly theme. The books are suitable for ages 13+.

Here are the Week 7 FREE audiobooks, which you can download HERE. You have to download them by 7:00 AM EST on June 15th. Once you have downloaded them, the audiobooks are yours to keep forever and listen at your leisure.

Here is information about Week 7's theme:

AudiobookSYNC’s seventh week of the 2017 season brings you a pair of audiobooks in which invisible and highly significant lines are crossed by daring characters.

Julia Whelan’s performance of PLUS ONE by Elizabeth Fama takes listeners right into an alternate world where people are divided between “rays,” who live by day, and “smudges,” who live by night. Crossing from one of these spheres to the other goes beyond impacting the individual who dares to do so; her action also brings political turmoil to all. The author, whose teen novels have received acclaim, believed so strongly that her latest should receive audiobook treatment that she produced it herself. Julia Whelan is a narrator superstar whose ability to perform multiple characters will leave you wondering if this is a full cast reading (It's not, it's all Julia Whelan).
Paired with that alternate reality suspense is a this world novel, IF I RUN, by Terri Blackstock, and narrated by Nan Gurley for Zondervan. This is the first in a series featuring a young runaway woman implicated in a murder and the investigator hired to find her. A quick start and a fast pace will have listeners glued to their headphones—and speculating on that unnerving idea: What would I do if I were either of these characters, the runner or the pursuer?
Strongly developed characters, thrilling plotting, and performances that bring it all to vivid life make this week’s pair of suspenseful stories nearly compulsive listening.
Plus One
by Elizabeth Fama

If I Run
by Terri Blackstock
(If I Run, Book #1)

  1. So sorry for your loss Darlene. Enjoy your new audios!

  2. So sorry for your loss of your uncles, Darlene. It is hard saying goodbye to those we love. I've done a lot of it.

    And thanks for letting me know about The Child. I just reserved it at the library. Really liked The Widow.

  3. I'm so sorry about your loss. I've lost my grandmother a few months before and it devastated me beyond words. It's usually hard to lose a loved one. I hope you'll be alright.

  4. Sympathies to you and your family on these losses. Thanks for the reminder about SYNC
