Stacking The Shelves #6

Stacking The Shelves was started by Tynga's Reviews.  Please check out this amazing blog!

This was another busy, and emotionally draining week for me.  I was very sad and affected by the many terrorist attacks throughout the world, and by the reactionary responses it brought forth.  So I was in a reflective mood all week.  Why couldn't everyone just be nice to each other?

My response was to blog about the many wonderful book blogs there are on the Web.  Many are afraid in the wake of these attacks and lash out with hate.  I choose to respond with as much kindness as I can muster.  I can honestly understand that people are afraid, but I don't think hate will help the situation.

I didn't get any new books this week.  But here is a summary of my blog:



Sunday, November 15th:  ARC Review of The Sisters of Versailles

Monday, November 16th:  Spreading The Blogger Love #3

Tuesday, November 17th:  Spreading The Blogger Love #4

Wednesday, November 18th:  Spreading The Blogger Love #5

Thursday, November 19th:  Spreading The Blogger Love #6

Friday, November 20th:  Feature & Follow Friday

  1. Your book is new to me. I hadn't heard of it before.

    1. Hi Grace, Crossing to Safety is actually a pretty old book, written in 1987. I was really moved by this (I will post my review of it on Sunday). I don't know about you, but if a book has really made an impact on me, it takes me a few days to process it all, and then I can get to the review. Have a great weekend.

  2. That's a new to me one as well! Hope you enjoy it!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Hi Jessica, Thank you for stopping by. You are always kind with the comments. I think this book will not be for everyone. If you're a little bit older, as I am, it will appeal.

  3. Spreading the Blogger love feature you did this past week is a good one for the times. Great idea to do!

    1. Thank you so much. I just want to emit good vibes from this blog! Thanks for the comment. Have a great week.
