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...
On The Blog Last Week:
On Wednesday, I was lucky enough to be able to participate in a cover reveal for one of my favorite authors, Danielle L. Jensen, who wrote Stolen Songbird. She has written a prequel to the series, called The Broken Ones. There is also a giveaway from the author in that post.
Monday: Bay Area Book Events
Tuesday: Review: The Girls by Emma Cline
In "Real Life":
We got to take a short trip to Santa Barbara to visit family over the long weekend. It was fun, going out to dinner and finally saw Rouge One at the Arlington Theatre. But I haven't had much time for reading, and I am honestly getting kind of upset about it. It's a hard thing to balance work, family, and one's own needs (Yes, reading is a need for me). I had to forego several author events in order to do things for others. I need to find a way to do it all...
I won this book from the wonderful Nori of the blog ReadWriteLove28. Thank you so much!
I am listening to this creepy fun book as part of a book club on GoodReads. It is set in the Roaring 20's and is really fun with all the period touches. There are flappers, speakeasys, and a serial killer on the loose! The slang the main characters use is a wonderful touch.
That's it for this week. What books are you reading? What books are you excited about? Let me know in the comments.
