Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, that spotlights the books we are adding to our shelves; whether they be virtual or physical.
I hate it when I forget that I have requested a book, and then a month or so later I get approved. It messes up my schedule, and I have a hard enough time trying to keep up as it is. Still, I can’t wait to read Children of Earth and Sky by Guy Gavriel Kay.
Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem by Sarit Yishai-Levi and Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher. I’ve started both and am enjoying one, while the other is not exactly engrossing.
Winter’s Bullet by William Osborne just showed up in my box from Scholastic with an #IReadYA paper attached. I haven’t done that hashtag since December, but apparently it’s still dishing out books. *shrugs* It’s an alternate WWII YA, which I love, but I’m just not sure if I’ll read it. Maybe…
My two year Blogoversary was on Thursday, but I didn’t have time to even get a post together for the occasion. Thanks to all of you who have stuck with my ramblings for these two years! Right now I’m probably at the hospital visiting my sister, or at home under the covers because I am tired and there is not enough time in the day to get things done. She’s been in the hospital since last Saturday night. She was having symptoms again like last year, and they did an MRI, only to find lots of lesions on her spine. She just had her treatment last Wednesday, so it’s no coincidence that it happened. I just pray that she doesn’t get set back to partial paralysis. She just learned to walk again back in December without her walker and she has been doing good. Now this. I just hate seeing her in pain and defeated. I won’t have the kids again until Monday after work, but they are out for Spring Break next week, so I know that I’ll be scarce around the blogosphere. I will try to visit you guys on my breaks or if I have time before bed. Just because there is no post, doesn’t mean no giveaway.
