Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tyngas Reviews. This meme allows us to share the books we've recently added to our shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! *Clicking the link of a book's title will take you to Goodreads.
So I just had the last meeting for one of my classes! I still have a paper due for the class, but not for a couple of weeks. That class is just with the 4 other graduate students who are student teaching semester (my other class has the undergrads, too). We've been a cohort for the past year, so we've all become friends. We went to lunch afterwards, where I may or may not have had a margarita at 11 in the morning. This week should be a pretty easy one. We are just showing a movie as so many of our students will be traveling and it would be a nightmare to catch them all up, plus the students need a break. I have about 160 one-page essays I need to read (I assigned another one before I could start grading the first one), but my co-op is giving me the break to get through them. I have two major projects/papers for my own classes I need to work on, but at least I'm off for 5 glorious days. As we don't have family here, it should be relaxing and I'll have plenty of time to work--although seeing some family would be nice, of course. Christmas break will be here before I know it, though, so I'm not too worried about it. I really do need to use the time to get all of this stuff done!
On the blog front, I didn't get a whole lot done this week. I posted my normal memes, but just didn't have the time to sit down to write any reviews or discussion posts. I really only have about two weeks left in this semester, so after that the blog should be back to normal. Thanks for still taking the time to drop by to see me even though I'm not putting a lot up lately!
On the book front, I did snag a few things I'm excited to talk about, so without further adieu. Hope you are all having a great weekend!
Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes
I still need to read Falling Kingdoms, but I've heard good things. I love these covers. I can't give you the synopsis of this one because I didn't read it...because I haven't read the first book.
The Geek's Guide to Dating by Eric Smith
How adorable is that cover? I love it. This nonfiction book just sounds fun.
What I bought
A Half Price Book trip.
Confessions of a Hater by Caprice Crane
I remember being excited about this book when the cover was first revealed because, seriously, that cover is amazing. Then I completely forgot about it until I found it at Half Price Books the other day.
Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
I read this book about a girl whose ex-boyfriend becomes a rock star and writes a song about her years ago and cannot really remember it. I plan to give it a second look over Christmas break.
Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott
Again, I've already read this, but it was $2. I vaguely remember this story about a girl who falls for her friend's boyfriend. The story has been done, repeatedly, but I do like Elizabeth Scott.
What I snagged from the library
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
I'm excited to start this fantasy series about battling kingdoms.
Demonosity byAmanda Ashby
An ancient myth + a mean girl + a reluctant warrior = a lively take on good vs. evil. It looks pretty cute.
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
A female football quarterback has to deal with the hot new boy who's after her spot on the team.
So that's it for me this week. I'm pretty excited about what I added to my shelves. What did you add to your shelves? Link me up!
