It’s OCTOBER!! I love the fall season…all the warm colors, cooler weather and pumpkin everything. I decorated some and generally started to try to get into the festive mood. The temperatures around here have lowered a bit but I’m eager for some chillier temps.
Since I took off a week from blogging this will be for what I’ve gotten in the last two weeks so it’s a bit more than normal. I’m very excited about them all. And look at that The Kiss of Deception map.
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.
Yay to getting Macmillan ARCs. Now if The Winner’s Crime could show up… I love these Harper hardcovers and can’t wait to read The Fall. I started it and I can already tell it’s going to creep me out. I’ve heard mixed things about Black Ice but I’m eager to see for myself. I was asked if I’d like to review The Lodger and couldn’t turn it down. It’s an adult historical fiction and it looks wonderful. And that cover is lovely.
Gift (for being on the blog tour):
Once Mary Pearson shared pictures of this map I was wanting it oh so badly. I was THRILLED when I got one in the mail for being on the tour. Such a beauty!
I’m on the Thrills and Chills tour that The Midnight Garden is hosting so I was gifted this beautiful book. I had The Screaming Staircase already but hadn’t read it yet. This gave me the push I needed and I ended up loving it. One of my faves of the year for sure. I can’t wait to read TWS.
I won Chaos on Goodreads so I had to catch up on the series. I’ve heard nothing but praise and already read Sanctum and really enjoyed it. I feel so lucky that I’m getting to read them all one after another. I don’t think I would have enjoyed the wait between novels.
Last Week’s Posts:
I didn’t post all that much last week since my blogging break went until October 1st. I’ve got to say, taking the little break was amazing for me. I feel a lot more motivated and I had time to read, catch up (some) on comments and draft a few posts.

How have you been these last two weeks? What new books have you added to your collection?
