Book Haul #28

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:

I only picked up two audiobooks from the library this week.

Navigating Early

Navigating Early by Clare Vanderpool
I loved Vanderpool’s Moon Over Manifest, and have been meaning to read this one for ages.  I’ve already started this and I’m really enjoying it.

The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
It’s been years since I read The Lost Hero, and I’ve been meaning to get back to this series for awhile.  I’m so excited to see what Percy is up to.

Life Tidbits

  • I’m right this minute watching the “The Family of Blood” episode of Doctor Who and those scarecrows are creepy!  Also, I’m thinking David Tennant looks mighty fine in this episode 🙂
  • I actually have the weekend after Thanksgiving off (it’s the first time in six years) and I’m really excited about it.
  • I went to lunch on Friday with my mother, grandmother and aunt, and it was so nice.  It’s nice, spending time with family.
  • I went to Ulta with one of my best friends on Thursday, and only spent $25.  I consider that a triumph.  🙂

    David Tennant was my favourite Dr. I tolerated Matt Smith and I’m sure the new guy will be okay but I felt the universe was safe with David at the helm 😉 Here’s my Sunday Post

  7. Enjoy your long weekend! 🙂 And kudos for the restraint in Ulta. 😀

  9. I have yet to start reading the Percy Jackon books…I guess I will get to it one day haha 🙂
    And I am really behind on Doctor Who (I’m only on season 2!) so I haven’t gotten to that episode yet!

    I used these books you gor from the library as a sort of “study” on my blog…is that okay?
