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...
What Happened This Week:This was a short week at school, as we had monday off. I think it was tough on the little ones (and the staff) to get back into the routine of getting up early, and being someplace early in the morning. I am hopeful that everyone is getting more sleep in the coming week.
Also, I signed up to participate in the Million Women March on January 21st. Even though I don't live in the Washington D.C. area where the actual march will take place, I will be at a companion march in California. I think these are happening in every major city.
Why am I doing this? I am marching (bad knee and all) to show my concern for what some in the capital would like to do to causes I care deeply about such as immigration, social justice, health care, and reproductive rights. I do not mean to offend any people who voted for Donald Trump. I am merely exercising my rights of free speech. If you are interested in joining this event, go online and look up Million Women March. There will be links to events in your area.
This was a freebie on Kindle so how could I resist?
I already devoured this fun book. Fun, you say? Didn't Lady Jane Grey get beheaded by Queen Mary of England? Not in this tale. It was a fun bit of revisionist history, and a great escape.
That's all for this week. What books did you get in the new year? What are you looking forward to reading in the new year? Let me know in the comments.
