Welcome to this week's edition of Stacked. Inspired by The Story Siren and other similar features, this is my weekly post where I show you what I bought, borrowed and received.
Howdy, everyone! Happy Memorial Day. Like most people, I love a good three day weekend. I am usually out of town for Memorial Day but this year I am staying put. I plan on eating, baking, reading and knitting. And maybe seeing Men In Black 3. :) I didn't get too many books this week. I had to buy a whole new set of tires earlier this week which set me back a lot so I can't buy a lot of books. So I am trying to be good and read my NetGalley books and library books. Let's see what I got, shall we?
For Review (Netgalley)
Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowan - I was on the fence about this one but my friend Kimberly at The Windy Pages just gave it a great review so I put it in request and got it. Plus - love that cover.
Die For Me and Until I Die by Amy Plum - I was lucky enough to win ARCs of both of these books last week from bibliopunkk. I have been wanting to read this series so I am very excited.
Paper Hearts by Maureen Child - This novella was free on Amazon for a day and it looked promising so I just got it. Has anyone read anything by Maureen Child yet? Good, bad?
Wherever You Go by Heather Davis - Another recommendation from a friend that I found at the library. It's got ghosts.
Revived by Cat Patrick - I've been seeing this one around a lot lately and it's gotten good reviews so I thought I would give it a try.
Serve Yourself: Nightly Adventures for Cooking For One by Joe Yohan - I live alone and thought this one might be good to try since it's so hard cooking enough for me but not so much that I have to eat leftovers fora week.
The River Cottage Cookbook by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - I was listening to a podcast that recommended this book. Decided to check it out from the library to see if I liked it.
The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without by Mollie Katzen - Another cookbook. Trying to cook for myself more.
I Will Not Read This Book by Cece Meng - This just looked fun. I like to peruse the picture book section at the library.
Little White Rabbit by Kevin Henkes - I have a friend who has pet bunnies and this reminded me of her.
Those are the books I have for you this week. And, just because I can, I am leaving you with some pics of my trip home last weekend. I took my parents for a little day trip to wander around Monterey. We live about an hour and a half away from there and it was a fun little outing and I love the beach. Have a great weekend!
