Last week on the blog:

Got three reviews this week, even though one was on another blog.  Made my goal of one post a week as well.  Had my birthday this past week.  No book gifts, although I did get Pitch Perfect 2 DVD finally, and a gift card to the movies as well.  I had a writing date with my friend on Friday to get ready for NaNoWriMo.  I’ve got a few books started this week. One that I don’t know if I’ll finish.  It is really so much of just this background information about a tv show, one I do love, but it almost seems like that is at least 50% or more of the writing so far.  Will be thinking about emailing the publisher that I won it from and letting them know I’m not going to finish it.  I also got the new iPhone 6S this week! Getting used to it and getting it all set up with what I need. 


This week on the blog:

  • Promo Post:  Life After the Undead by Pembroke Sinclair
  • Review:  Willful Machines by Tim Floreen
  • Cover Characteristic:  Eyes
  • Promo Post:  Somewhere I Belong by Glenna Jenkins
  • Promo Post:  The 13th Brigade by Ky Lehman
  • Possible Reviews:  The Heir by Kiera Cass, Persuasion by Martina Boone, Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins

I should be less busy this week.  Hoping that means I can get more reading done. But that sounds like something I think almost every week.  I have been making sure to read more before bed, although I’m trying not to use my Nook, because they say that can make it harder to sleep if you look at those screens right before bed.  I have a Halloween party next Saturday night that I’m looking forward to. Then next Sunday NaNoWriMo starts!  I am not feeling as confident as last year, because I pretty much knew where my story was going. This year, I don’t quite know how it’s going to end. But I’m told I have to just start writing and see where it goes.  Also, my October New Release Giveaway Hop ends on Saturday, so make sure you go enter HERE.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
 It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I didn’t buy any actual physical books this week. But I did get several free e-books, and several cool e-galleys.

E-galleys:

 The first two I had to request, and I got approved.  I’d just set up Wax as a future WOW as well!  The other three I’m automatically approved for, so I will see if I actually download them.  

Free e-books:

   The first one was  Nook book, the others were all free on Amazon.  

So that’s what I added to my shelves this weekend.  What did you add to your shelves?

    Great haul!! looks like you had a great week. I've not heard of any of the E-galley's yet but that just makes it more fun to check them out. I love the kindle freebies. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope you enjoy your new books. Have a great week.

    I read the first Vault of Dreamers book, but it's been so long I can't remember what happened. I'll have to read it again before tackling the sequel. Have a great week!

    I've heard a lot about Embers, but haven't gotten to it (that and it takes a lot of effort for me to start a new series at this point). But if it's free on Amazon…

    • Lisa Mandina

      Yeah, there were a lot of issues I had with Vault of Dreamers, but it was good enough that I want to see what happens next. Thanks for stopping by!

    • Lisa Mandina

      Ah, no big deal. I just remembered this morning that I needed to go back to the list and start visiting some other blogs! Thanks for visiting!

    Aw, happy birthday!! I am excited to read The Rule of Mirrors! I didn't even see it but after I saw this, I searched for it and requested, so fingers crossed 😉 Thanks for that! I am really curious about the others too- especially Wax and Savage. But I am just not sure enough to request yet hahah. I hope you enjoy all the new books!

      Yeah, I'm trying to limit myself in what I request to things I'm pretty sure I will read. HOping that will cut back on the not getting things I've requested read like what happened this year. Thanks for visiting!

    You have some interesting looking new books! I'll have to check those out! Thanks for stopping by, I'm returning the favor. 😀 Have a great week!

    Three reviews in a week… color me totally impressed! 🙂 And happy (belated) birthday! Sad that there were no books involved, but Pitch Perfect 2 was lots of fun. Hope you get a great start to NaNoWriMo on Sunday. 🙂

      Well one was an audiobook, that I'd been listening to in my car, so that makes up for any time I can't read in wasted driving to and from work time. 🙂 I'm nervous but excited for Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!
