Waiting On Wednesday #9: Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee

new-wow

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights books we are eagerly anticipating.

The last WOW that I did was back in June 2014. I was working 14-16 hour days back then, so I just got back into doing this weekly meme. Plus, I had just started blogging and had to learn how to manage my time- that now included this. This week I’m waiting on Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee. If you don’t know, this is a companion novel to my favorite book of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird. God, I remember reading my aunt’s copy when I was only 13 years old. I have 3 copies on my shelf. 2 are dogeared and creased beyond repair, but my hardcover that I purchased about 5 years ago is in perfect condition. Every person on the planet should read To Kill a Mockingbird. Reading that book did something to me inside, and I’ve been trying to find another one that I will love just as much. I can’t count how many times that I’ve read it.

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’m having one of those weeks where I wish that I could just fade into the background. I’ve been snapping on any and everyone, everyday, and I wish that I could take it back but I can’t. I’m just so sick of the madness around here. I didn’t link up to Goodreads with these because I’m in a hurry. Hope you all are having a better weekend than I am!

My week has been sort of hectic but I managed to survive. I’ve had 3 migraines this week and my meds are not working. So, I’ve been in hell while at work trying to focus with my head feeling like it was about to split open. Not many books this week but I did get a few.

Netgalley

22886621  Modern Monsters by Kelley York This is YA Contemporary and the cover grabbed me so after reading the synopsis, I was sold.


Edelweiss

24438325  Shetani’s Sister by Robert Beck better known as Iceberg Slim It’s been a while since I’ve read some great street literature. To be honest, not many authors can pull it off so I’ll see how this one goes.


For Review

IMAG0421-1-1  The World Before Us by Aislinn Hunter I’m reading this now and so far, I can’t tell if this will end well for me. I keep putting it down because it’s confusing the hell out of me. Thank you to Hogarth/ Penguin Random House for sending me this book.


Kindle Freebies

24093544  Rippler by Cidney Swanson Over 2,000 mixed ratings on Goodreads and since it was free, I grabbed it. 

20761374  Reasonable Doubt by Whitney Gracia Williams It’s only a novella but I couldn’t resist it. 

Well that’s all for me this week. What books did you add to your shelves?

I’m feeling a little blue today, so I’ll just get right to the books. Not many this week, but I did get a few. Plus, now I have to get the rest of the books that go along with the ones I found for $3 each. Yep, I got three hardcovers for $9. I have yet to start either of the series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, but I’ve read great things about them. There are a lot of books to get before I even start. I’ll get to them eventually.
