It’s been pretty quiet this week.  Seems like everybody’s off enjoying the summer–even you guys have been pretty radio silent the last couple of weeks!  Let’s see if I can scrape together a small life update, though.

I FINALLY am back on my 4 ten-hour shifts.  And somehow, I managed to actually break through my reading slump this week–at least a little bit.  I’m trying not to push it, because I don’t want to scare it away,  but I’ve managed to finish a few books at least!

I got an email from the wonderfully lovely Kimberley Knights, author of The Cilantro in Apple Pie (which you should all go read if you haven’t already–it’s SO SO good!)  She needed some help for a magazine feature–since she held her book party online, she was looking for people willing to take pics of themselves holding the ebook.  Well, you all know I’m SOOPAH happy to help out authors in need, so…

Not the best picture ever, but that’s what you get when you ask the hubs to help you out.  I mean, just look at the picture he snapped for my “200 Followers Appreciation” picture for instagram, guys:

I just… I don’t even know what to do with him.  BUT–I reached 200 followers over on instagram, and am hosting a giveaway!  Go to THIS LINK HERE! for details.

And…yeah, that’s pretty much it!  Aside from, I’m listening to Anberlin on my headphones and OHMAHPENGUINS, I forgot how much I adore this group?!

I…guess it was the week for snagging retellings on awesome deals?!  Because like…I got all of these on sale, and half of them are retellings.  I wonder if publishers plan this sort of thing.

What are some of the books YOU picked up/added to your shelves (either real or virtual?)  Let me know below, or link me to your own Stacking the Shelves!

Until next time, happy book-ing!

  1. Great haul, you’ve got some seriously good books there! I loved My Name Is Memory, The Shadow Queen and Perdido Street Station and quite a few others are on my TBR pile.

    Congrats on 200 followers on Instagram too, that’s fantastic 🙂 I just hit 300 and it feels like it’s taken forever…

    • Oh that is so awesome! I read Un Lun Dun by Mieville quite a while back (like…last year?) and immediately knew I wanted to pick more of their books up, buuuuut haven’t had the opportunity until now (yay ebook sales!) I haven’t heard much about The Shadow Queen, which is surprising given how much people LOVE retellings? so I’m super excited about getting to that one (hopefully soon!)

      Am I following you on instagram? O.o I should go see…

    • I somehow luck out and find all the books I buy on sale through Kindle, which means…I buy a LOT of books! But I swear I only ever buy the ones I’m most interested in! XD I read The School for Good and Evil…last year? AND LOVED IT! I can’t wait to dive into book two!

    • Thank you so much, and congrats to you in return, that’s awesome! I’ve heard great things about The Shadow Queen since putting up this post, so fingers crossed! I know Everland has mixed reviews, but I tend to really love books with mixed reviews, so…we’ll see! ❤
