Sunday Shout Out (4)



Recently, I introduced a new feature here at In the Hammock on Sundays. It's called "Sunday Shout Out" and it's a place where I can give a special shout out to those publishers and authors who have sent me books over the week, as well as those bloggers who have hosted contests that I've won! I'll also be giving shout outs to any other cool books, blogs or bookish news that I've spotted during the week.

Check out my first Sunday Shout Out post for even more info, here!

Contest Wins

"Wrecked" by Anna Davies


Won from The Violet Hour. I'm so excited to read this one!

Books for Review
"Sirenz Back in Fashion" by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman


This one is autographed by the authors and looks so fun!

Gotta Have It
Now for the book I just found this week, that I must have now!!!

"Shelter Cats" by Michael Kloth


My boyfriend showed me this story at Peta Pixel about an Arizona photographer, Michael Kloth, who visits local animal shelters to take high quality photos of the animals in the hopes of attracting more people to adopt. Kloth has combined many of the photos into a book, the proceeds benefit the ASPCA. Check out his site Shelter Cats for more info.

Shelter Cats is already available and Shelter Puppies is released May 22nd!

"Shelter Puppies" by Michael Kloth



If you would like to do your own Sunday Shout out, please link back to this post, and leave your link in the comments section this weekend so I can check it out, and so that other readers can stop by too!!

I'm looking forward to receiving my copy of SIRENZ BACK IN FASHION. The first book was super funny! :)

Chelsey @ Starry Sky Books said...

I'm halfway through Wrecked right now, though I put it aside for the moment to read another book, but I like it so far. Hope you do as well! I'll be getting a copy of Sirenz Back in Fasion soon and I'll be reading Sirenz in the next week or two. They both look great. Happy reading!

Here's what I got this week!

I've read mixed reviews for Wrecked. Looking forward to see what you think of it. I just finished Of Poseidon and thought it was meh....I do like adding the boys POV from the mermaid perspective though.

LOVE the Shelter Cats of course. I worked in shelters for several years and whatever draws attention to getting them adopted is great!

I've working at a Vet before and I adore animals! I'll have to look into the Shelter pets books :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my gosh - shelter cats and shelter puppies looks incredible. I love my rescue cat and dog.

Kat Balcombe said...

Oh I love the cover of Wrecked - so dark and hot all at the same time!

The idea of the shelter cats and puppies books is awesome and a great way to raise awareness.

Enjoy!

Shelter Cats and Puppies look like such cute books! I wish more people would adopt rather than pay animal breeders!

Awww, lots of cute animals today! I wish I could take them all home with me. Enjoy your new reads! :)

@HarleyBearBooks said...

I wouldn't be able to read that dog book without adopting one of them lol. I haven't heard of any of these books, but they look good. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I'm excited to read Pushing the Limits too. The cover reminds me of a Simone Elkeles book.

Ashley said...

I'm totally interested in reading Wrecked. I'd love to know what you think about it!

The dog and cat books sound totally awesome! I'm totally an animal lover. I actually adopted my cat from a shelter <3 A book like that would make me want to go adopt 5 more pets!

Here's what I got this week

Marie Ifmarybooks said...

So say we all!

Tiger Holland said...

How sweet! I used to have an aversion to all cute things, but now my heart absolutely melts over photos of puppies and kitties. Sound like a worthy photo project.

Mimi Valentine said...

Ohhh!! I won a copy of Sirenz last year and even though I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, I still had no idea that there was going to be a sequel so soon! I hope you like it -- it's kind of inspired me to go back and read my copy of book one soon! :) And those kitties and puppies are just so adorable!

Awesome shout out this week, Carrie! Have a fantastic reading week!

Blodeuedd said...

I so want a kitten :/

Kristin@BloodSweatandBooks said...

Those Shelter books look like they would break your heart to read. I know just seeing Kittens and Puppies on TV needing homes make me break down like a pageant queen whose just won the title.

My Weekly Wrap Up

Books And Beyond said...

I must have the kitty & puppy books. NOW. I turn the commercials that come on tv though, I can only watch them so many times. They are incredibly heart breaking. I feel bad I cant do more. I have to help the stray/ferals in my city & wish I could help them ALL over the world, especially the dogs of Peru.
I hope you have a great week :)
TY for the listing of the books.

Oh, I really want Wrecked! The cover is amazing. <3 I hope the story inside is just as good! Gosh, Shelter Cats and Shelter Puppies are SUPER ADORABLE. The puppy in the Shelter Puppies cover has such lovely eyes! They are... well, puppy eyes. And I just want to kidnap the cats on the cover of Shelter Cats! I agree, gotta have these books! x)

Lovely haul, Carrie! Happy reading! :)
