Here’s my usual blurb about today’s post…I stumbled across Stocking The Shelves on Jill’s Book Blog (check it out). This is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. Here’s what they say about it…
Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
I actually bought physical books this week!! Not for me, but, for my 7 year old son! I ended up buying him 7…yikes! But hey, if he is reading and won’t stop reading, I don’t care!! Here is what we bought him…
The Ballpark Mystery Series box set 1-4 (and then subsequently 5, 6, & 7 after he blew through 2 books in 2 days). He has been struggling with reading lately and has read all of the books we have. My husband stumbled across this series by David A. Kelly which is a mystery series for kids ages 6-9 (grades 1-4). Each book takes place at a different MLB stadium. The box set was only $13 on Amazon so we risked it and I am so glad we did!! He read the first book in a day, he couldn’t stop (ut oh, he takes after me). He HAD to know how it ended! Hahahaha. We are so happy to find out he enjoys mysteries and we plan on buying this whole series for him. I am happy to take recommendations for more mystery books you think a 7 (almost 8) year old boy would enjoy!
Now for my books…first, I’ll highlight the freebies!
One S’More Summer by Beth Merlin
Get Lucky by Lila Monroe
All Eyes On Me by Linsey Lanier
The Day I Died by E. B. Black
There Are No Men by Carol Maloney Scott (for a short time it was offered free)
I did pay for 2 books this week…2 books I am **VERY** excited to read! They are both by the talented Teresa Driscoll! As soon as I finish the 2 books I am reading right now I am diving in to these bad boys!!
What do you think of the books I got this week? Do you have any? Did you get The Promise this week??? Let me know!! As always, thank you for stopping by!

I hope you and your son love the books!
I hadn’t heard of any of these but for The Promise. I just read a great review of that one so I hope you enjoy it too! Happy reading to both of you!
