Sunday Post - 72 & Stacking the Shelves - 45

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.

This week has FLOWN by I tell you! And truth be told, I've been in a really excellent mood. And I can't wait for Thanksgiving this week. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving as well. Of course, I went to see Catching Fire Friday night with Husband, SNL, Holly @ Words Fueled by Love, and my friend Paula. It was GREAT! You guys seriously! I think it was better than the first movie. There are some differences from the book--as there always are. But it was really well done. I wanted to do a movie review and post that yesterday, but after seeing the movie, I realized how much I need to do a re-read before I could do a legit movie review. But time just did not allow me to re-read it before seeing the movie. Have you guys seen it? What did you think? Also, how about the newer and longer Vampire Academy trailer and the Divergent trailer. So glad to see those in the previews and looking forward to seeing both movies in the theater.

Goodreads description--In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her. . . .

But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure—and re-education—looms larger than ever.

Pulses will race throughout this thrilling fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.

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!

    Slightly jealous about The Fiery Heart. I wasn't able to get it yet. :( Hoping it's a great read!

  2. So far so good. I read almost 200 pages last night. :) I'm about halfway now! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I haven't had a chance to see Catching Fire yet. Maybe over Thanksgiving Break. I did get and read The Fiery Heart though and thought it was great. Come see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  4. WOW! You've got The Fiery Heart ?I'm dying to read that! ;'( Will be looking forward to seeing your reviews :D And thanks for dropping by my blog :)

  5. I'm going to see Catching Fire this Wednesday, I hope I will it as much as you did. And I loved the trailers of Vampire Academy and Divergent, so excited to see them. Still need to get a copy of The Fiery Heart, but I hope to get it soon. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by earlier!

  6. I just started Fiery heart, hope you enjoy!

  7. So glad you loved Catching Fire and that you are feeling awesome and excited for the holiday. Nice haul. Enjoy and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  8. Enjoy The Fiery Heart, there are so many holds for it at my library I won't be reading it any time soon. :( I can't wait to see Catching Fire, I might just go by myself if I can't talk my husband into seeing it with me. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    I've heard such good things about Catching Fire, I can't wait to go and see it.

    Here's how my week went.

  10. I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving, and I'm so glad you enjoyed Catching Fire. Have a wonderful week!

  11. My daughter went last night with a friend and was a bit irritated with some parts, but on the whole she said it was good. Awesome book haul!

  12. YAY! Catching Fire was incredible! I was so happy! And the Divergent trailer on the big screen! I freaked out. I didn't see the VA one at the theater, but I'm not really thrilled with it. And you got Fiery Heart! I still need to read Indigo Spell! I hope you enjoy it!

    I haven't seen it yet, but a friend of mine in Canada went Saturday, so I'll be hearing all about it! Sounds like it was good. We don't celebrate Thanks giving over here, but Happy Thanksgiving! :) & The Fiery Heart, haven't picked it up yet, since I want to wait to read the whole series, and it'll be too tempting, haha. Hope you enjoy it though! Thanks for stopping by mine yesterday. :)

  14. Oh I hope you get to see it soon! Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Just finished it tonight too! Best in the series so far! Thanks for stopping by!

  16. Oh yay! You'll have to let me know what you think of it! Finished The Fiery Heart tonight! Best in the series! Thanks for stopping by!

  17. Richelle Mead is one of my favorite authors. Definitely recommend her work. Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Oh yeah! I hope you love it! I finished it tonight!

  19. Hope you love it! I finished it tonight and think it's the best one in the series! Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Oh I hope you get to see it soon. Definitely excited about the Divergent movie. I'm afraid VA could go either way. The longer trailer looks better than the teaser they did, but there are still some things that concern me with the trailer. Hopefully it'll be great too! Thanks for stopping by!

  21. I hope you get to see it soon! Thanks for stopping by!

  22. Yeah, it's never going to match the book exactly. And there are always little things I would have done differently or wish they'd done differently, but I thought it was really well done overall! Thanks for stopping by!

  23. Oh goodie! I'm so glad that you enjoyed it too! I was loving seeing the trailers in the theater too! Sorry you didn't see the VA one. There are definitely some things about that one that have me concerned, BUT the longer trailer looks much better than the teaser. We'll see how it goes! Definitely need to read The Indigo Spell ASAP because I finished The Fiery Heart tonight and it's definitely the best in the series so far! Thanks for stopping by!

  24. I did! Finished it tonight! Best in the series! Sydney is a great MC.

  25. It's hard to keep up where everyone is and which holidays everyone celebrates. Thanks though! I can definitely understand wanting to wait until the whole series is out. This one left off where you'll be dying to get your hands on the next one. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  26. Oh thanks for coming by to tell me! I'm so glad that you loved it! I hope to get to see it again before it's out of the theater!

  27. Love the sound of The Fiery Heart, but haven't read the previous ones. Thanks for sharing...and here's


  28. i just got this one, i wanted it so much, happy reading, thanks for visiting me earlier. :))

  29. I really want to see Catching Fire but money is a bit tight right now so I'm going to have to wait till comes out on DVD. I'm glad everyone is enjoying it though. I'm looking forward to Divergent more now that the full trailer is out, I still need to watch the Vampire Academy one

  30. I hope you love The Fiery Heart! I can't wait to start it. I'm so ready for more Sydrian.:)

  31. Cathing Fire was really good, loved it so much. I think they did a great job. Can't wait to see the next movie. And I'm glad you liked The Fiery Heart!
