Stacking the Shelves #38

Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week. This week it’s another baby haul and a short post. I almost decided not to do one but then I didn’t want to post another book review because we already have so many posted this week and next, and I skipped a meme do to a blog tour this past week, so I just decided to do it anyway. Sorry for the ramble, but I am running on like 4 more »

KC and the Sunshine Chats (2): A Day in the Life of a Book Blogger

Around the book blog world, there are a lot of awesome discussion post groups, like Book Girls Don’t Cry, They Vent or Reviewer’s Roundtable. The ironically named KC and the Sunshine Chats was born out of a wish to be part of the fun. However, we wanted to mix things up and instead of posting individual discussion posts, we’ll chat back and forth in one post, alternating which blog the post will appear on. We don’t have a set schedule for these, but will probably post one or two a month. We do know the name is silly, but this more »

Stacking the Shelves #37

Welcome to Stacking the Shelves! Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Team Tynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week. It’s been a pretty quiet week around here this week. I only got one physical book in the mail. I did get two e-books and I signed up with a few publishers so hopefully I will be getting ARCs soon, but for now, it’s a small pile. I know I always said that I would prefer to read my own books, and I still do, but I think I have gotten more »

Welcome to Stacking the Shelves! Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Team Tynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week. Before I get started on the books I’ve acquired this week, I just wanted to let y’all know that Lyn will be back to posting more as soon as she can. She’s still trying to stay with me, but her life has been extremely busy lately and some important job stuff has come up. When she has a little more time, she’ll be posting more, I am sure.  This more »
