Stacking the Shelves

Notice anything different? I decided it was time for a change so gave My Friends Are Fiction a make-over. I’m loving it. Last week I skipped Stacking the Shelves to post my stop on Cuddlebuggery‘s epic giveaway hop, Getting to Know You. You can still enter to win a pre-order so head over.

I’m including 2 week’s worth of books this time and boy I love each of them. Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review.

For Review (via Edelweiss):

Illusionarium

Some new Harper titles went live on Edelweiss so I ran to check to see if this was one of them and YES IT WAS. I’m so excited. I hope it’s as amazing as I hope/expect it to be.

For Review (thank you Harper and HMH!):

Won (Thank you Irene Goodman Literary Agency):

I feel so lucky I checked Twitter right when I did because I won the last copy and it was purely by luck. It made my day, week, month. I have already read The Wrath & The Dawn and WOW. I loved it.

A wonderful friend took pity on me and loaned me their copy and I’m oh so thankful. I’ve been waiting for this book for years and I couldn’t wait to dive in. I’m a bit more than half way and honestly, I’m the tiniest bit disappointed. I feel so sad saying that. It’s written beautifully of course but the subject matter is a tad dull for me. Isn’t that horrible? I want to love it! I hope the last half will pick up for me.

I’ll be having a special something coming next month related to this series. Keep your eyes open!

I am very close to hitting 3k followers on Twitter.  My good friend Jon from Bookish Antics is close to 2k so we figured when we both met our goal we’d have a giveaway.

That’s it for me. I’m shocked Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK for my US and Canadian friends. I don’t feel ready to host just yet but soon. I hope you all have a fabulous time next week and I want to let you all know that I am insanely grateful and thankful for each of you. Big virtual hugs!
