Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, that spotlights the books we are adding to our shelves; whether they be virtual or physical.
I’ve been in such a state this week. I’m tired, stressed, heartbroken, and a whole lot of other things. I haven’t been reading the books that I’ve planned, but rather reading other books that might cheer me up. Some have made me smile, but others have made the bad moods return. Someone help me load up on some summery reads, would you! Please, I’m begging you!!!!

Kindle Purchases, Gifts & Freebies
I have already read the first 11 chapters for The Orphan Queen from the ARC last year from Edelweiss, and am just now getting around to buying it. I just know that I’ll be starting over, since I can barely remember what happened so far. And Jazmen gifted me a copy of One With You, which I’ve already devoured. I started reading it Thursday night, but I got sleepy. Woke up at 3 a.m. and didn’t stop until I finished. I’m sure you’ll be reading my thoughts on it come Monday, because I just have to get it all out.
I’ve already read Since You’ve Been Gone and The Moon and More, so look for those reviews next week. If I Tell popped up on my library suggestions, so I’ll see about that one before it expires. It looks like I may enjoy it.
I’ll take all the summery recommendations that you guys can give. If my library has them, I’ll more than likely check them out. My city is in mourning right now. This past Sunday evening, a well loved friend was killed in a four wheeler accident. He was only 33. I am still in shock, and so are his family, friends, and the rest of the community basically. I was cooking when I received the news, and damn near broke my toe when I dropped a frying pan. I just can’t even imagine the pain his wife and daughters are in right now, even though I’ve lost loved ones. There were almost 1200 people at his funeral, if not more. He was well loved and I know he’s in a better place. But… it hurts so bad. I hope you all have a great weekend and just hold your loved ones close. You never know when it’s your time.
