Added to the Bookshelf – 3/10/13

Posted March 10, 2013 by Melissa in Added to the Bookshelf, In My Mailbox, Showcase Sunday | 26 Comments




Sharing the week’s bookish news and the books & bookish goodies that I’ve bought, borrowed, won, or been gifted and have added to my bookshelves over the past week!

(Inspired by Mailbox Monday, IMM, Clock Rewinders and the like)


Notes From Melissa:

Sadly work is still killing me with 10-15 hour days…I still see no end in sight…but something is going to have to give soon.  I simply can’t keep up with my family responsibilities, home life, blog and that…

On a more positive note though…It’s almost time for St. Patrick’s Day! I’m debating whether I have time to host again this year…but I love doing it and if I don’t no one else in my family will… With Easter and Birthdays coming up as well though…we’ll be busy busy busy!  At the minimum, I’ll make a few loaves of Irish Soda Bread! 

Do any of you have St. Patty’s Day Traditions?

      1. I love the cover to Fly Away. It’s so pretty & Impossible looks interesting. Wonder if it’s still free….not that I need any more books or have time to read them….

      2. Wow, your super busy @ work! Hope it gets easier, soon! I love the cover to Fly Away it’s so pretty. Watership Down is on audio? I remember reading that book in school, and wondering if I should listen to it now that I know it’s on audio. Happy reading!

      3. I know what your feeling with work, I hope it lightens up for you 🙂 I seriously want to read Legend I have it on my YA Display at work and I’ve had some good reviews from it! 🙂 How is The Collector going? 😉

      4. Bea

        The cover for Firefly is gorgeous. I really hope work slows down for you soon, that’s a rough schedule.

        If you don’t have time or energy for a St Patrick’s party, several loaves of Irish Soda Bread sounds excellent, but then I love Irish Soda Bread. 😀

      5. I love the cover for Fly Away. And awww, Watership Down. That’s an emotional book, I remember really loving it! Hope you enjoy your reads and have a fantastic week! 🙂

      6. You’ve had a good week, it seems! Lucky you, to have the new Kristen Hannah to review!

        Are you enjoying Watership Down? I’ve always heard how wonderful it is, but I tried to read it too young, and haven’t picked it up since. Maybe one of these days…

        Here’s my Sunday Post. I hope you’ll stop by and say hi, if you have a chance!

      7. I really don’t have a St. Patrick’s Day tradition, what with being Polish, but my red headed son keeps thinking he might have been switched at birth and has always wanted to be Irish. I know he wasn’t switched at birth, he was with ME from the moment he was born until I brought him home. So no chance his Irish mother is raising a Polish boy. Silly kids. Please look after yourself, exhaustion can lead to many things, like horrible soda bread. Love some of the covers of your books Watership Down, so lovely. Great story too.
