Book Haul #26

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga’s Reviews.  The Sunday Post is a weekly event hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  Here we can share what new books we’ve picked up this past week as well as other interesting book news.

From the Library:

counting by 7s

Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan
Isn’t this cover adorable?  I love it!  I’ve heard good things about this one, and I think it’s going to be my next read.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
I’m borrowing the audiobook, and I’ve heard that this book is wonderful.  I’m trying to read quite a few of Black’s books because I’m hoping to go to an event featuring Black at the beginning of December.

From Audible:


Game by Barry Lyga
I loved I Hunt Killers, so of course I couldn’t wait to start reading the sequel.  I already began this and I’m hooked!


Life Tidbits

  • It’s been an easy week for me.  I worked Monday-Wednesday, but had Thursday and Friday off.  I do work today (Saturday), but that’s okay.
  • I had my first experience with Indian food on Friday.  I got the Chicken Tikka Masala and I really liked it.
  • I found two dog beds at Rite Aid for only 5 dollars each!  I think my puppies like them, although they would rather sit on the couch next to me 🙂
  • I’ve been eating very heavy food lately, and I actually feel kind of gross because of it.  I’m going to eat lighter fare for the next few days.
  • I’m heading to the Penguin Putnam Warehouse Sale on Monday, and I’m so excited!  Next week’s Book Haul post is going to be insane!

    Love all of your books this week!!

  6. I’ve had I Hunt Killers for so long now, but still haven’t read it. I’ve heard so many people say how much they loved it though, so must get to it soon! Enjoy your reads. My STS.

    Great haul! Enjoy your new books!

    On a side note, I *love* Indian food! I work with several people from India, and whenever we have potlucks, it’s amazing. If I go out for it, though, I stick to what I know – Samosas, Butter Chicken and Naan. 🙂

  9. Counting By 7’s sounds like an interesting read, especially as it’s being compared to Mockingbird which I read and enjoyed last year.

    I hope that you enjoy all of your reads.

    No STS post for me this week, but please feel free to visit my blog at

  12. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown! I have it, just haven’t gotten around to reading it, but I’ve heard so many good things about it, so the audiobooks should definitely be an experience, haha. Hope you enjoy it! Have fun at the Penguin Putnam Warehouse Sale (try saying that 10x fast. :P)

    Heres mine

  13. I’ve heard so much about Barry Lynga’s books, but I still haven’t tried any yet. I’m still conflicted about whether I should read Coldest Girl or not.
    Enjoy your lovely books this week! 🙂

    Nick – My Haul

  14. I haven’t had Indian food in awhile…my son developed a love for it when he was living in London, of all places. And one of my good friends cooks great Indian dishes.

    Enjoy your week! Here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES
