Stacking the Shelves

Another week behind us. As always it went too fast and now I’m shocked it’s the weekend. I got some really wonderful book surprises this last week. I also visited Watson at my Mom’s house multiple times. He’s loving it there and Sherlock and him are getting along wonderfully. I miss him but I can tell he’s happier over there. Plus, I get to see him as much as I’d like.

Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review. So excited about this book haul:

    Yay, Watson and Sherlock! I splurged on some books this weekend with a Visa rewards gift card I received in the mail, combined with two B&N email coupons I had: Rebel Belle and Great. πŸ™‚

      I finally ended up hitting the bookstore Saturday late so didn’t add the books to my StS…they’ll be on this week’s. I hope you love both Rebel Belle and great πŸ™‚

      The Falconer does look brilliant! I can’t wait to read it. I’ve not seen much about After the End so I’m really not sure what to expect. I look forward to Celine’s review of it.

  3. says

    Awwww, look at those two cuties! So happy to hear they’re both becoming fast friends and love being together!
    Ooooh, the Falconer was great and I adore the cover, hope you’ll enjoy it too! I cannot wait to hear what you think of After Then End, since it’s one of my very awaited books of the year!

      They had some dominance battles at first (and still do) but I think they are working it out and everything will be great between them.

      I love the cover of The Falconer so much. The UK one is so pretty too. I’ve not seen any early reviews for After the End. I hope it’s amazing.

    Oh my god!!! You have named your doglets Sherlock and Watson.. that is so cute :3

    I have just finished of The Renevants series by Amy Plum and I loved it. I will have to check After the End out soon.

    Thanks for sharing your haul and have a great week! πŸ™‚ xxx

      Haha! We had to name them Sherlock and Watson πŸ™‚ It’s so cute because Sherlock (the dog) is taller and seems to catch on a tad faster. they make a great couple.

      Did you enjoy Plum’s series? I wasn’t crazy about the end book but I hope I love After the End. I hope you do too.

    I really want to read The Falconer! Also, I can’t wait to see how A World Without Princes is. I read the first one and thought it was okay but I love the covers for them so much. I hope it’s good.

  6. says

    Awww, those puppies are just too cute! I have The Falconer and I can’t wait to read that one, it looks really good. I love the look of Life by Committee as well. I recently read After The End and enjoyed it, it didn’t make me want to continue the series though. I hope you enjoy your books πŸ™‚ My STS.

  7. says

    Ahh, The Secret of Lily Graves! I love that cover and I can’t wait to get that one in my hands! ;D
    Life of Committee sounds really good too!
    WATSONNNN! <3 Sorry, Sherlock, but Watson just stole my heart. ;D

    • says

      I’d not heard of Life of Committee or Lily Graves…I’m not typically a fan of contemp but I hope these change my mind. Have a great week!

  8. says

    I can’t wait to read The falconer, it’s also my bookclub pick for May! After the end sounds really good too. The secrets of Lily Graves was a bit disappointing, but I hope you’ll like it better than I did. A world without princes <3 I hope to get a copy soon. Happy reading!

      I’ve just started School for Good and Evil and I’m enjoying it! I was so excited and surprised to get A World Without Princes. The covers are so, so pretty.

  9. says

    Your dogs have the perfect names! Does one of them play the violin? πŸ˜€

    I’m really excited about The Falconer–I just saw a pretty high rating from another blogger, so methinks I should have requested it. I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of it!

      I wish one could play violin…that would be beyond superb πŸ™‚

      I have seen mostly high star ratings and buzz about The Falconer…I love the cover and have very high hopes. Fingers crossed we both love it!

    • says

      I have your reviews saved waiting until I read and review them myself πŸ™‚ I am so glad to hear that you loved The Falconer. A bit sad about After the End though πŸ™

  10. says

    Adorable puppy pics! I’m so glad Watson and Sherlock are thriving.

    Of your books, I’m most excited for The Falconer and After the End. I hope After the End is not another generic post-apoclayptic story, because the cover gives me that impression.

    • says

      Yep, I’m a tad worried about that too for After the End. We shall see. Fingers crossed it’s amazing and surprising. I’ve really not heard much or any buzz about it.
