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

And so it begins!

I've already raked up eight bags of leaves. Today, I'm hoping to tackle the closing of the pool but that will all depend on the weather. We had some rain yesterday, and it was also really windy. I need a calm, preferably sunny, day so that I don't get all those leaves in the pool.

I won these e-books in the Lazy Days of Summer Giveaway hosted by Mary @ Mary's Garden:

Watching Jenny
by Mary Martinez

Classic Murder: Mr. Romance
by Mary Martinez

Thanks again, Mary!

I snagged this audiobook for free on Amazon (unfortunately it is no longer available, presumably because it's included in this month's selection of free picks of Audible Originals which is a new membership perk):

by Jane Austen

As mentioned above, Audible introduced a new membership perk which is your choice of two free Audible Originals from the six that are featured each month. Since I already grabbed Emma before this perk was launched, I still had two more picks and here's what I got:

Girls & Boys
by Dennis Kelly

The X Files: Cold Cases
by Joe Harris

Thanks, Audible!

I bought this audiobook (70+ hours) for $0.66 on Amazon:

Oz: The Complete Collection
by L. Frank Baum

I received these audiobooks for review:

Alaskan Holiday
by Debbie Macomber

The Nightmare
by Lars Kepler
(Joona Linna, Book #2)

Thanks again, PRH Audio!

This is Tantor Audio's freebie of the month (click on that link to grab it):

The Last of the Mohicans
by James Fenimore Cooper

Recap: Last Week On The Blog

Top Ten Tuesday: Binge-Worthy TV Shows

Can't-Wait Wednesday: Hidden by Rebecca Zanetti

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. haaa yes, the pleasure and work of falling leaves! Good luck with this as Fall has officially not yet begun ;-) Sophie @bewareofthereader

    1. I know! My backyard is surrounded by trees on all sides, so I get all my neighbours' leaves as well. It sure makes it feel nice and secluded, but the clean-up is A LOT!

  2. Thank you I grabbed the Oz Audio. Wow, we are experiencing fall weather in the form of rain and cooler temps. Our grass got so long I had to pay someone to cut it because whenever my hubby could it was raining!

    1. It rained yesterday and today, but we've had very little rain all summer. In fact, I can't even remember when I last mowed the lawn! I don't think that I have since July!! Sun is out now, so I must work on the pool!

  3. The end of summer is sad, but I love fall. I don’t do well in hot weather. Enjoy your new books!
