Sunday Post Meme
.   I haven’t done a Sunday Post in a while, but I was pretty good this past week and so don’t have a lot to share for Stacking the Shelves, so I thought I’d share some upcoming events, as well as celebrate the amount of reading I got done this past week during my spring break.

Last week on the blog:

 Now that is three reviews for the week, but I actually finished 4 books, I’ll just be reviewing the 4th one, We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach, tomorrow as part of a blog tour.  I only ended up doing the Cover Characteristic post because one of my goals for this year was to try to post every day on my blog.  And so I had to do something!  My other goal was to stay with at least 2 reviews a week, and I did that for sure with 3 this past week.

This week on the blog:

  • A to Z Blogging Challenge Theme Reveal
  • We All Looked Up Review and Official Book Playist
  • Review:  Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer
  • Review:   Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little
  • YA Spring Fling Giveaway Blitz??
  • Maybe Cover Characteristic 

Getting ready for the A to Z Blogging Challenge in April, I’ll be revealing the theme for my posts on Monday.  My review for We All Looked Up is also scheduled for Monday as I’m part of a tour and didn’t really choose at the time.  I also have written on my calendar for the YA Spring Fling Giveaway Blitz and I’m not sure exactly what I’m supposed to be doing for that yet.  So that’ll be a surprise for me too!  I finished Belzhar Saturday night, so it will need to be reviewed Tuesday probably.  And I just started Forbidden this morning, so it will be a review later this week.  The theme for the cover characteristic meme this week is hair, so I may or may not mess with it.  

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
 It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.   I was pretty good this week in that I only got one physical book, and only 3 e-galleys.

I found another magazine that I felt I had to have, even though I have yet to have time to pick up the two I got last week.

I found this on our bargain table last week, a hardcover for $5.98, cheaper than even buying the mass market paperback, especially with my 30% employee discount.

E-galleys:

 

I was so excited when I finally got approved for Daughter of Deep Silence, I love Carrie Ryan’s zombie series.  I also am looking forward to reading the sequel to Feuds, and the last one just looks and sounds really good.  With Torn, I got to thinking about all the times I didn’t get ARCs of sequels or other books in series that I’d read the first book.  So I think I might go search through Edelweiss and maybe Netgalley for the sequels to see if I can still find them.  At least books that I read the first one in the past year.  

What did you add to your bookshelves this past week?

    Nice haul! All three of your e-galleys look really good and I'm looking forward to reading Daughter of Deep Silence when it releases 🙂 Nice job for keeping up with your blogging schedule and goals. Happy reading this week!

    I read The Forest of Hands and Teeth years ago but never got round to reading the trilogy. Now I think I need to track down the prequels so I can do a full series read. I might investigate some of her other work. Enjoy your books!

      The trilogy was pretty good, although the first book was probably my favorite. You should definitely get all of them and read them all together. I love when I can do that. Thanks for stopping by!

    • Lisa Mandina

      I do need to combine them more often. 🙂 I like doing both of them! Especially now that I've started planning ahead more. Thanks for visiting!

    I requested a copy of Deadly Design but I don't think the stars aligned for me to get this one. I hope you enjoy all of you galleys, especially Daughter of Silence!

    • Lisa Mandina

      Hmm, interesting! I am usually the one who doesn't get approved for egalleys. Can't wait till I can get around to it on my schedule! Thanks for stopping by!

    • Lisa Mandina

      Interesting! Hopefully you'll hear back soon on that! I'm usually the one that doesn't hear back for the longest time on things. Thanks for visiting!

    • Lisa Mandina

      I really liked her other series that I read, so I'm really looking forward to one that sounds a bit different. Thanks for stopping by and following!

    I looove the cover for Daughter of Deep Silence! I've only read one of Carrie Ryan's other books, but I quite liked it. 🙂

    I hope you enjoy all of your books! 😀
