Hello and welcome to Stacked, a weekly (usually) post where I discuss what books I’ve recently bought, borrowed or received. It’s been a while since my last Stacked post. I’ve gotten some really great book mail recently though and made it out to a few events. I probably won’t be doing too much book buying for the rest of the year (famous last words) but these should keep my busy for a little while. :)

A new apartment is a dream come true for interior designer Caroline. The apartment is perfect in every way except for one – her new neighbor has a very active social schedule and she has very thin walls. Caroline can hear every moan, giggle and bang coming from the apartment next door. Unable to take another sleepless night, Caroline confronts her neighbor. What begins as annoyance soon grows into friendship. With the tension running high between the two, will Caroline and Simon become more than just friends?
Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure.
Yes, I realize that it’s Wednesday and not Monday. I waited a couple of days because I wanted to be able to take manicure pics with the actual book, which came out on Tuesday. This week’s look was inspired by Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl. I sported these nails to the book launch party on Monday (thanks, Alethea, for the invite). Black Widow has always been an intriguing character to me and I am excited to see what Stohl has done with the character.
The trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just dropped and I, for one, and quite excited about it. I read the book by Seth Grahame-Smith ages ago (and even have a signed copy) and I’ve been looking forward to this for a while. It looks very tongue in cheek and fun and combines two things I love – Jane Austen and zombies. I also love the little nod to the BBC adaptation of P&P that they put in. I think this is going to be a fun movie to see with my other Austen loving friends.
Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where we discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. Sorry this week’s post is a bit late. The weekend just ran away from me and I haven’t had time to format this post until now. This week’s question is: what recent book(s) were you disappointed in?
Noah and Kit’s story is finally here! While Nalini Singh is probably best known for her paranormal romance series (if you haven’t read them, you must!) she’s also making us swoon with her newer contemporary Rock Kiss series. She’s been releasing excerpts over the last couple of weeks and it’s been driving me crazy not being able to get the book. Thank goodness it’s now available. Check out the post below for more information and a giveaway at the end of the post.
Adult coloring books have seen a surge in popularity over the last year or so. With high pressure jobs and hectic home lives, many stressed out adults are starting to see the benefits of carving out a little bit of time for creativity. Coloring books are a really great way to do something fun and creative that doesn’t require a lot of materials of preparation. Just grab a box of crayons or colored pencils and you’re ready to go. It’s a great activity to enjoy solo or with the whole family.
Thanks to everyone who entered last month’s giveaway for the signed ARC of Red Queen. I realized that I have a ton of books that I really need to re-home so I am amping up my giveaway game. This month, I am giving away 3 YA books from my collection. The two ARCs have been gently read but Soul Screamers is totally new. Usual rules apply. This giveaway is US only since international shipping is so expensive. I’ll try to have an international giveaway soon though. Thanks, everyone and good luck!
Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. It has been a while since my last manicure post. I really haven’t been feeling the nail art inspiration lately and have not been painting my nails all that much. However, I started a book with a great cover recently which inspired this look.
This week’s manicure was inspired by The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White. Unfortunately I only have a digital copy of this book so I didn’t get any pics of the cover and my nails together.
Hi, everyone. It’s been quite a while since my last sale post. Truthfully I’ve been trying to stay away from buying new eBooks since I already have such a huge backlog of unread ones. That doesn’t mean that you should all suffer though and I’ve noticed a few really good sales lately. I don’t know how long all of these books will be on sale so if you see something you like, I would get it sooner rather than later. Also, these all link to the Amazon Kindle editions because I have a Kindle but these books may be on sale on other digital platforms as well. Titles with a * next to them are ones that I’ve read or personally recommend. Happy shopping!
