Weekly Reads (11/17/17)/Stacking the Shelves (137)/ Sunday Post


So this in gonna be a combination post.  The last two days I was busy at work (and out of town) for the yearly conference we throw each year.  It was in a neighboring town and was a lot of work and driving.  But, it's over and I have 11 glorious days of Stay-cation planned. 

The pups are fine but the weather is crazy. It doesn't know if it wants to be warm, cold, sunny, cloudy or rainy - all in a three day span.  We watched a new Amityville movie the other night, "Amityville: The Awakening."  It wasn't horrible and I've always enjoyed Amityville movies.  We will probably be Netflix-ing it the next week or so because a new season of "Longmire" started, "The Punisher" has started, and "Frontier" Season 2 starts next Friday.

Since I just posted my November Musts & Mights, I won't show pics of my planned reads but I'm currently reading "Canal Day Calamity" and next up are "Rolling in the Deep" and "Truants."


Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves or TBR piles, may it be physical or virtual.  This means you can include books you buy in a physical store, online, books you borrow from the library or friends, review books, gifts and of course, ebooks! The original meme was started over at Tynga's Reviews. And it now has a new co-host where individuals can link up as well - Marlene from Reading Reality.  Clicking on the book (or title) should take you to the Goodreads page.  I'm also now linking up with the Sunday Post which is hosted by Kimberly@Caffeinated Book Reviewer


I won this Kindle box set from the HoHoHo RAT Twitter Party.  Thanks Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.   They look like super cute cozies to get me in the Christmas season.

I also got "The Burial Society,"  "Gringo" and "The Broken Girls" for review.


Next week I should have a library haul as well as a few books I've purchased or found for free.  Hope everyone is having a great week!

    1. That's a warm Thanksgiving. It was in the 50's here today and the 30's yesterday. It can't make up its mind.

  9. I was excited about the new season of Longmire...and ended up binge-watching the whole thing yesterday! My reading fell by the wayside, but I felt so cozy watching the final season...and sad that it is the final one. But we can always watch everything over again.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

    Thanks for sharing...enjoy your Thanksgiving, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. We're up to episode 5 on The Punisher. So far so good and I'm actually starting to like the actor who plays him more than I did when he was in The Walking Dead.

  11. Enjoy your stay-cation! I can't wait to get to Longmire when I feel like actually paying attention to something. :) I hope we both like The Broken Girls!

    Have a great week!
