Stacking the Shelves [30] (and where I've been!)



Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we get to gab on about the books we've won, bought, or otherwise received in the past week.

Hello again, readers. As most of you know, I've had a pretty rough couple of weeks (which you can read about here.) So, this week will be covering not only this week, but the week before. Also, if anyone knows of any blog designers who do good work and are reasonably priced, feel free to let me know. I'm looking to improve my site. Now, let's get started.

For Review:


Clockworkers by Ramsey Isler
Rising Fang by Anfal Khaliq
Exploring My FREEDOM - gay diary by David Svoboda


Netgalley:


Tony Hogan Bought Me an Ice-Cream Float Before He Stole My Ma: A Novel by Kerry Hudson
Frenchie: New Bistro Cooking by Greg Marchand


Amazon Freebies:


The Start of Us by Lauren Blakely
Odin's Murder by Angel Lawson, Kira A. Gold
Throwaway by Heather Huffman


Gifted:

Joyland by Stephen King

Thank you to my future mom-in-law for this, and for the TARDIS necklace!


In addition to the books, I do have to mention that when I went to see the missus for thanksgiving, she had a box full of presents waiting for me!


And then we went Black Friday shopping...


We also bought a ton of stuff for our first Christmas tree together. And we got a betta! His name is Master.


And out on a date.....

She got me the necklace so that I could feel infinite. And that is my yummy dinner.

Annnnnnnd I got a few care packages from home this week too.


Now, what about you?

    1. I haven't watched season 1, but I adored season 2, and I'm liking Coven. But, I have a soft spot for things set in Louisiana.

  7. I love the Infinity necklace! I actually have it tattooed on my ring finger :) Joyland looks really interesting even though I've never read a Stephen King book before.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. It's just so pretty! My gf got one as well- you have good taste :)

  13. Yay! All of these books are pretty new to me, Jillyn. But Odin's murder is really interesting. I love the Norse Mythology after watching the Thor movies. I am looking forward to your thoughts about it.

    Thanks for stopping by my Thoughts and Pens ages ago.

    1. It's funny you should say that, Tom Hiddleston as Loki has fueled my interest in all things Norse. He's just so pretty.
