Sunday Post - 30 & Stacking the Shelves - 3

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Yesterday, we had our third Pinterest party. This one was Valentine's Day themed. Again, for those of you who might not be aware, our idea for a Pinterest party is that everyone bring a dish from a recipe they found on Pinterest, and whoever is hosting the party that month picks somewhere around 3 crafts from Pinterest for us all to do. The hostess buys all of the items needed for our crafts, we split the cost and pay the host before or after the party. It's a lot of fun and a great way to try a bunch of recipes and crafts from Pinterest at one time.

Goodreads description--Everyone dreams of that first kiss. Of that magic moment when your lips finally meet those of that special person you’ve waited your whole life for. A little awkward, a little scary, a little hot and every bit amazing. We speculate that the whole world will shake and time will just stop. No one, however, ever imagines that kiss to bring Death himself knocking.

Sixteen year old Mercy Moore's life just got more complicated. The kiss that originally could have meant she would finally have a boyfriend now was the kiss that could have very nearly ended his life. A small detail her mother conveniently never told her will take her life for an abrupt u-turn. Dating, no love, was now completely and utterly impossible. And the boy well, that boy would never be the same.

But life, however cruel, goes on. Far too soon for her taste, Mercy finds herself at a senior party with the elite students of her school and her best friend. And of all things, playing a stupid game that could very well mean the death of someone in that small room. If it were not for her best friend, the hottest guys in school, and a small need to fit in, she may have been able to escape the disaster that was to come. Her worst nightmare, her personal curse, her very life, only gets dangerously worse.

This is a young adult paranormal romance novel.

That's it for my shelves and recaps of my past and upcoming week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Any bookish news you want to talk about? Let me know!

    Happy Reading!

  6. Beg for mercy sounds pretty good, I hope you like it.
    Following you back :)

  7. I loved Daughter of Smoke & Bone, it's just right now I'm on this New Adult contemporary craze and everything else just takes too long to get into. I'm going to have to read it sooner or later, though. I'm about 30% of the way through and I refuse to let my book sit around and collect virtual dust. Oh no. Not. Happening.

    Beg for Mercy sounds interesting. I think I'll have to add it to my Wish List or to-read shelf or whatever. You read Firelight? Awesome. I loved Firelight. And Vanish. And Hidden. But I think the first was the best. And you're going to read The Fault in Our Stars? I've heard thhat it's really sad. I've put it off for a while because everyone's said it was sad. I don't like sad books. They make me do crazy emotional drama-like things. Like punching walls and bawling lika a baby.

    Happy reading!
