So, since my end-of-the-week post isn't just about what I got in my mailbox or on my Kindle each week -- though that is a big part of it, I won't lie -- I decided to change up the title and intro a bit. I might tweak the format a bit over the next few weeks, but for the most part, it'll contain the same stuff: stuff I got, stuff I did, and stuff that's coming up on the blog. Plus, I get to use the awesome GIF you see here and blow kisses to all the people who sent me lovely books and bookish things. Oh, and I've started linking up to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews since I'm not using a specific meme title anymore. April's also doing her own Stacking the Shelves posts on Sundays. Stop by and say hi! =)
Soooo busy right now with what everyone in the family's got going on -- school, soccer, the beginning of hunting season -- but surprisingly, I've found time to read some really good books lately. :) Katie's very first soccer game is today, so I'll have some pictures from that later. It's an afternoon game, so we're lucky that a cold front came through on Thursday. It was 101° on Wednesday, but it's only supposed to be in the mid-70s today. FINALLY! A break from the heat! And that means it's almost time to pull out all our spooky reads! I am so excited!
Anyway, here's what I scored this week:
Every Breath by Ellie Marney - finished copy for tour, very excited to start this Sherlock-y story! And it's an Aussie author...feels like I can never go wrong with those!
Death Date/When by Victoria Laurie - on GR, it's still Death Date; on NG, it's called When...either way, it sounds fantastic...I love countdown-type stories!
California by Edan Lepucki - hadn't heard of this before but then I saw some positive reviews and added it to my TBR; now that I have a copy though, I've seen some not-so-stellar reviews...maybe the audio version will be better?
So, that's my haul. How about you? What did you get this week?
The Week in Review:
- Falling into Place (April)

I've been hearing the best things about Marie Lu's newest novel, and I'm finally getting to my ARC. It's one of those that I expect to finish in one sitting...if people will just leave me alone for a few hours! :D
What if Sherlock Holmes was the boy next door? Yeah, what if?!? That'd seriously be awesome. I have no doubt that I'm going to love this one. I love detective-type mysteries and this one sounds like a lot of fun.
