Shopaholic Sundays (3): Stacking the Shelves / On My Radar

Shopaholic Sundays are a weekly feature here at I Write, I Read, I Review. This is my place to talk about what I bought this week, what books are releasing that I'm excited about and what's coming up on my blog.

Hey guys!

I'm still working at fine tuning how I want to do Shopaholic Sundays. With that in mind, I think I'm going to be crediting Stacking the Shelves for my "Things I Bought" videos, and I'm going to keep On My Radar and This Week... the way I have them now.

Sorry for a bit of radio silence over here! I keep starting new books and they keep bouncing off of me. They don't wanna latch on and stick! I'm not sure if it's stress or editing woes (Moon Dance needs a major plot edit at the part I'm working on.)

At least the weather is beautiful and I got some great books. Curious what's happening (and happened) this week? Read on!

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga Reviews where we get to share the books that we bought, borrowed or received. Ready to see what I got? Watch the video! 

Here are the books:

Please Note:

I caught two errors in the video. (1) The elderly woman in A Turn In The Road is the heroine's mother in law. and (2) I slipped and added an s to "Hocking". Thank you.

On My Radar is a weekly feature inspired by Fresh Batch over at Xpresso Reads. The purpose of On My Radar is to give me a chance to talk about the books I am thinking of buying, or at least sampling on my Kindle.

Shift by Em Bailey -- This has a very "hive" feel to it, which is certainly not something I've seen done in YA before. I'm intrigued to see whether my hunch about this is right and to see how it will play out.

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks -- I've been looking forward to this book for months. I'm very interested in anything fantasy aquatic or mer related, so this definitely has my attention. Whether it will be a book I love or not waits to be seen, but it certainly has my interest.

Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowen -- For a long time I have checked out books about angels and demons, waiting to find that one book that will totally sweep me off my feel, completely blow me away. It's too soon to say this will be "the one". But I can safely say that I am interested.

Tuesday -- A review of Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown. As I said in the video, don't quote me on this one, but I'll do my best. What I can tell you so far is that Calder's voice is unique and interesting and this is definitely a book you don't want to miss.

Wednesday -- Waiting on Wednesday post. I have a pretty awesome book picked out that I'm really excited about. Want to know what it is? Come back and see. :)

Thursday -- A review of Vision in White by Nora Roberts. My thoughts so far: I love how much attention to detail there is about the wedding business, Vow. Mac is a heroine I really sympathize with and Carter is an absolute cutie; definitely a unique hero who will likely stick with me.

That's "it" for me this week! Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to know what you got this week, what books you are looking forward to and whether you have anything interesting coming up on your blog. Feel free to leave a comment! 


  1. I so want to read Of Poseidon. i need to read Lies Beneath soon because I have a blog tour for it soon. I keep forgetting. It's awful of me.

  2. I love Nora Roberts' books but I don't think the Bride Quartet is her best work. There was too much detail on the business and not enough on the characters.

    Hope you enjoy your books.

    Here my Stacking Post. Stop by if you get a chance.

  3. I didn't know that cover of Vision in White but it looks so much better than the one of the edition I read! :D
