#StackingtheShelves #43 + #Blog Updates and week's end for 7-23-16!

Thanks to our Sponsor, Tynga's Reviews!

First, let's find out HOW Stacking the Shelves works! 

Hello everyone! It's that time of week again, that time to do an awesome "SHOW AND TELL" of the books I have been given, from authors, from publishers, I bought, borrowed, or received somehow, the library, a yard sale, or some way this past week! I LOVE showing books off like this! This is one of MY favorite posts to write!!
I also use THIS POST EACH WEEK to do somewhat of a wrap-up AND to post my NEW REVIEWS, NEW GIVEAWAYS, and whatever else I should bring to your attention!
After you are done reading HERE, click on the Sponsor's name up above and see THEIR post for Stacking the Shelves, too! They have a link-up with OVER 100-200 other blogs that also participate!
I'm also finding OTHER PLACES TO LINK UP TO AS WELL! I'm finding these places from other blogs, and they are GREAT ideas! The following NEW one is Talk of the Town where we can add ALL THINGS BOOKISH! Check it out! I still plan on joining in on other link-ups, too, I just haven't had the chance to do it all yet! I'll get there!!
I will also be linking this post AND my reviews to Saturday Situation as well from now on, too! That is a place to link ALL THINGS BOOKISH! I'm anxious to start posting there!! Check it out, too!

How is everyone doing? I hope you are well! I didn't have a post last week! I know! Well, I'm definitely here this week and I am making up for it today!

A Perilous Undertaking (A Veronica Speedwell #2) by Deanna Raybourn
i've been DYING to "hopefully" get this one for review!!! YES!!! This follows Book 1 from the review above! Releases January 10, 2017

That's all for these last two weeks! Currently I am back to reading and finishing up (I had to put it down to read and review a few of the above books under Reviews.) At the Water's Edge by Sara Gruen. This is a book the book club I belong to is/was reading! I love how this author writes! She really pulls you into the story.

The Week Ahead? LOTS of reading to do for a review this week and the first week of August I believe there are FOUR books! Plus I am trying to squeeze in books I've received in the mail, as usual, but to get them READ! It seems simpler to read the ebooks, and more difficult to read the print books and I believe that is because I need a light where I sit and at least right now when I am reading I need my lamp on, and WOW! It throws the heat! Yes, I have central air, but I don't like it freezing in the house. It's must not be cool enough to not allow this lamp to heat up or something? Any of you have this problem? Or perhaps you have certain places you can and cannot sit during different times of the year? Tell us about them!

Okay! You all have a wonderful week ahead! I'll be reading and reading! (I do have one review for sure, and I will have the book I am reading now, it's review to post!) For now, 

Au Revoir!


  1. Looks like you've got some good new mysteries there. Hope you enjoy them!
    Check out my Sunday Post

  2. I was thrilled to receive A Perilous Undertaking as well. I LOVED the first one in the series and can't wait to see what happens next. Wonderful haul!

  3. Hope you get to read this week Laurie. Some fab books you have there :)

  4. All your titles look action-packed and fun! I am not familiar with these books, but I would probably like A Perilous Undertaking. Have fun reading all your new books.
