Added to the Bookshelf – 5/26/13

Posted May 26, 2013 by Melissa in IMM, In My Mailbox, Showcase Sunday | 17 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:

I can’t believe this is the last Sunday in May…where in the world has the time gone? I hope that everyone (at least here in the US)  is having an enjoyable three day weekend and is keeping in mind the true meaning of Memorial Day.

In bookish news…I’ve decided to join the Under the Dome Summer Readalong. 

 I have no idea where I will find the time to read this in addition to my other books (things have gotten a bit better at work but I still have so much less free time then I used to) but I am determined to finish before I watch the TV mini-series!  If you’d like to join…go check out the sign up post at Coffee and a Book Chick for more details!

            I so want to be part of the Under the Dome readalong. I already have it on my Nook and I’m definitely going to watch the mini-series, but I don’t think I’ll have a chance to read it first. Too many reviews and blog tours!

            Have a great week!

          2. Lots of lovelies this week! I have Age of Miracles waiting for me at the library, could have picked it up on Friday but will pop in tomorrow I think.

            I am looking forward to reading Shadowlark. I’ve got to the point where every new Stephen King perks my interest until I see how bloody long they are. I should go back and read some of his oldies instead.

          4. I really like that Barbara Bretton series, but I haven’t been able to find them all. I may have to give in and buy them, but the budget doesn’t stretch that far at the moment.

            I’ve been eying the third Fairwick Chronicle book, because I’ve heard such good things about the series. But I suppose I really ought to read #1 and #2 first. The cover is simply gorgeous, though!

            I read Requiem recently, and really, really enjoyed it. I know there have been some negative reviews of it, but it was easily my favorite of the trilogy.
