I am combining two great blog hops: Stacking The Shelves (a Saturday feature by Team Tynga's Reviews), and Sunday Post (a Sunday feature by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer). Both of these features give people a chance to post about what books they received and also an opportunity to catch a glimpse of what others are excited about. I really enjoy see everyone's version of these features! If you enjoy my blog, please consider following me via Bloglovin, Networked Blogs, GFC, or by email subscription. If you leave a comment and tell me you are a new follower, I will follow you back! As always, all book cover images are linked to GoodReads so if you see a book you want to learn more about, just click away...
Happening This Week:It's been a relaxing Thanksgiving week for us! I am happy (and thankful) to say that my plan of shared labor in cooking the Thanksgiving meal was mostly a success. I say mostly because a few things didn't happen as I had wanted, such as our meal being about two hours later than I had planned, but overall I was really please that everyone took their tasks to heart and we had an enjoyable meal that we all created. I think this will be a continuing tradition next November!
I also got to get down to a lot of reading! I finished three books today, alone!!! So much better than fighting crowds on Black Friday, don't you think?
New Books This Week:
From Read With Tessa's
I am so in love with this reading group! Every month this group reads all the wonderful YA books I have been yearning to read.
Free on Kindle:
These were books that I found out were free by looking at other people's Stacking The Shelves last week! I've already read both of these books. They were fun and just what I wanted to read on vacation!
Kindle First Program:This is a program that is part of Amazon Prime. You get access to one of six books per month that you can read for free before they are released! I will be reading and review this book soon.
First In Line Program:
I received this in the mail and it was a happy surprise! I love the marketing for this book. The cover has a band around it that reads:
This Book Contains:
- The untold story of Rome's female gladiators
- A lack of destressed damsels
- A steamy kiss by page 8
I love this!!!
That's it for this week. How was your Thanksgiving? Did you read any good books this week?
For my international readers, here is a video of Irish People tasting Thanksgiving food for the first time. This might explain what all the fuss is about:
