Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. This meme gives bloggers a chance to share with readers what we bought, borrowed, swapped, won or received for review each week. I also decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Life Outside the ‘Net
Not much has been happening this past week. I’ve been working, writing, and reading. My running injury seems to be improving, so I plan to start working out again Monday. If I feel ok, then I’ll slowly start back to a routine. However, I still don’t plan to go back to long distance running this season. We’ll see how it goes.
Many of my tv shows have returned, so I’ve been using my weekends to catch up, so I can read during the week. It only works if I have nothing going on, or there’s nothing on cable I want to watch, so I hope I’m not setting myself up for failure. One show I’ve been waiting for is The Last Kingdom on BBC America. I read the books the series is based on this spring, and was hooked. Author Bernard Cornwell is a master writer. How he weaves history, political intrigue, and mixes real life people with fictional characters is seamless. I also love his world building. It’s so rich and vivid, that I actually feel like I’m there. The second episode of the series aired last night, and so far everything is just like I imagined. If you’re interested in checking out the book series, you can see my reviews here.
