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:
I feel really lucky to have been able to read more this week. Nothing makes me crankier than to not get enough reading time in! Also, I was able to do one post each day, including two ARCs!!!
Monday: Bay Area Book Events
Wednesday: Book Review: Champion by Marie Lu
In "Real" Life:
It has been non-stop rain, here in the San Francisco Bay Area. The drought is most definitely over in Northern California. But all that rain has made for lots of treacherous driving, downed trees, and flooding.
On Monday, my daughter and I braved the weather to venture to Marin to see Stephanie Garber in conversation with Veronica Rossi. It was a fun event. I was able to really get a feel for Stephanie's taste in books (we both loved The Diabolic by SJ Kincaid) and I always learn more about writing at these events.
I even bumped into another blogger, Kaitlin, who I see at book signings all over the Bay Area.
Her blog is called Next Page Please and it is delightful.
On Wednesday, a tree fell onto the road to the town where I work. My daughter and I sat for almost an hour and then had to turn around and go the LONG way around. It took us a total of two-and a half HOURS to get to work. Thankfully, this only happens on this road about once every two years, but boy was that Not Fun!
No new books this week! I have finally just been able to sit down and start to tackle what I already have. I did finish three books last week:
All three of these books were wonderful, but I particularly loved Lair Of Dreams by Libba Bray. It is epic in scale, scary, and is set in the Roaring 20's.
