The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
I have decided to try to participate in all of their memes with only one post…thus 
The Sunday Post – Stacking the Shelves.

BOOK HAUL:

So last week I had a pretty good haul.
This week got even better.

Won from the Library:
(If you read books for their summer reading program, you get books.)

Cover of Thirteen Reasons Why

Thirteen Reasons Why

&

Last Week on Icy Cold Reads:

This Week on Icy Cold Reads:

  • Investigated
  • Review
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Something?
  • August Wrap Up?
Despite a better than normal haul, I was a bit frustrated and pissed this week.
For starters, my mom won’t let me see City of Bones this week.
And then a bunch of people started comparing it to Twilight.
AND saying how it was a Twilight rip-off.
Sigh.
People can be/are so ignorant.
I found this post on Tumblr and I couldn’t agree with it more.

Oh, and there is the fact that August is flying by.
Which means that school starts soon. πŸ™

How was your week?
What did you get?
Leave a comment and I’ll try to visit.
Happy reading!

Emily

  1. Between Shades of Grey is a book that most people love but I still haven’t tried it out. I need to though because I’ve heard the author’s writing is beautiful.
    I hope you enjoy your lovely books! πŸ™‚

    Nick – My Haul

    • I heard the same things about it. That’s kind of why I took it, after I made sure it wasn’t 50 Shades of Grey… Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

    • Hmm, that’s interesting. I read both of them and I liked Thirteen Reason Why better. But then again it has been a long time since I read it… Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  2. I haven’t seen the movie, but I’m not sure if I will. Not because people compare it to Twilight, but because I have no one to see it with! haha. Oh, but yay for winning those two books from the library! That’s a pretty good program. Hope you enjoy them πŸ™‚

    • I’m not sure if I’ll see the movie either, for the same reason. The day my friends are planning to go, I’m supposed to be on vacation… Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚
