Last week on the blog:

 The week back from Thanksgiving break has been pretty busy!  I didn’t even get a chance to go comment on other people’s Stacking the Shelves and Sunday Posts last week.  Aah!!  But with no The Walking Dead on tonight, and no dinner at my mom’s I should be able to get it done tonight instead of having to wait until tomorrow.  I also found a book trading group on Facebook and traded 4 books right away!  Books that I’ve had on Twitter for awhile and gotten no bite on.  So I should have lots to share next week.  Also, I got to meet a new author this week, Holly Messinger. She wrote the book I reviewed just recently, The Curse of Jacob Tracy.  On Friday she came to the high school where I am a librarian and talked to the students.  I of course had to have my picture taken with her.

This week on the blog:

  • Promo (Possible Review) Nexis by AL Davroe
  • Debut Author Bash and Giveaway:  Lance Rubin – Author of Denton Little’s Death Date
  • Waiting on Wednesday
  • Cover Characteristic:  Sharks
  • Possible starting a new challenge for 2016:  Starting a new series
  • Reviews:  Need by Joelle Charbonneau, Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout
  • Possible Reviews:  Audiobook – Yes, My Accent is Real by Kunal Nayyar.

I’m reading Nexis right now, and loving it, and hoping to be done and able to add a review to my promo post tomorrow.  Not sure if I’ll make it or not.  I’m also very excited to get to host Lance Rubin on Tuesday for the Debut Author Bash, I loved his debut novel, Denton Little’s Death Date, it was my staff rec at the bookstore where I worked for the last 2 months.  I mentioned before that I think I’m going to try to host my own year long challenge this year about starting those series that I keep seeing everyone else loving, and yet I haven’t gotten to them yet.  My month long challenge I do in September hasn’t done super-great, but I still keep plugging away each year with it. So I’m going to try this year long one as well.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
 It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I had a smaller book haul this week.  And part of the books I got I can’t show because they are for my TBBT Secret Santa recipient!  I also was very good this week about not requesting any free ebooks.  

Physical books:

I also got two calendars and some Star Trek post-it notes, it is our employee appreciation days at the bookstore, so that means I always buy more stuff!  It’s good at this time of the year because I can get lots of Christmas gifts, like for the Secret Santa stuff!

Now I found out that I won a giveaway from Jessica at A Great Read as well this past week.  Part of the prize arrived this week.  I poster from the book Winter by Marissa Meyer, that is signed.  You can kind of see it in lower left had corner of the picture below.

Jessica also threw in a copy of a YA coloring book.

Now, I could swear I got some e-galleys this week, but I didn’t write it down anywhere, so can’t share it.

So, that’s my last week and what I added to my shelves.  What did you add to your shelves?  How was your last week?  Again I ask, would you be interested in joining my new series challenge?  I’m thinking of calling it “It’s New to Me”.

    • Isn't it awesome! I just have to figure out where to put it now. And hey, it's a crazy time of year, so I understand getting behind on mailing things. I'll just be excited whenever it gets here! I'm so glad to have won in the first place I guess!

    • I love winning! So many things that I wouldn't buy, but now I can own them! And then the extras like the poster and coloring book. Awesome! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Cool poster, and I'm looking forward to your review of Need. I have it to read but just haven't gotten to it yet, but I think it sounds good.

    • I have been a bookseller since 2000, and only a librarian for 3 years now. But I love being a librarian, and had been trying since like 2008 I think, to get a library job. I do love books!

    • I guess the author used to do a lot of costuming, and the dress she wore is kind of like a character in the book she was talking about would wear. Thanks for returning the stop!

    • Yes! And I can't wait to color! Although I don't know if I should just stick to the actual colors of the books, or if I should color them my own choice of colors. 🙂
