Sunday Post - 37 & Stacking the Shelves - 10

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.

Husband has recovered from his sickness for the most part. I, however, have developed a slight sinus infection. Ugh! I don't feel that bad though. Did some clothes shopping Friday night. That was nice. Got 2 pairs of shorts and 3 tank tops--summer here I come! Then went to see my nephew play indoor soccer. He was put in at goalie for the second half, and I was really impressed with his skills. Yesterday I was a bum, but that allowed me to finish one book about make it 50% through another one.

I only got one book in this week because I'm still trying to keep the TBR list under control considering that I'm participating in the March Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge by Kimba The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. But it was a really good one...

Walking Disaster (Beautiful, # 2)

By: Jamie McGuire

Expected Publication: April 2nd 2013 by Atria Books

448 pages

Source: Publisher via NetGalley (Thank you!)

( Goodreads | Amazon )

Goodreads description--Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster. Can you love someone too much? Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.

In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.

Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.

Also since I'm participating in this challenge (though not the read-a-thon), I figured I'd give a recap of how I'm doing so far.

I've read 6 books from my TBR pile since the beginning of March. They are:

1. Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, # 1) - Robin LaFevers

2. The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, # 1) - Julie Kagawa

3. The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, # 1) - James Dashner

4. The Secret of Ella and Micha (The Secret, # 1) - Jessica Sorensen

5. Jenny Pox (The Paranormals, # 1) - JL Bryan

6. Rule (Marked Men, # 1) - Jay Crownover

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!

  16. Well done with the TBR Pile challenge! I've only gotten three books off my list so far -- too many review copies I have to get through, plus the demands of real life. I'm glad your husband is feeling better, and hope you get over your sinus infection soon. Those are no fun.

    Thanks for stopping The Bookwyrm’s Hoard on Sunday -- I'm sorry it's taken so long to check out your post! (I, too, had a sick husband at home. He's finally getting better, thank goodness.)
