My Crazy Life This Week

I don’t know that this week is much different than any other since February 2020 – my family is still safe within our bubble, politics are still infuriating and dangerous, and people are still cruel to others just because they are different (and there are so many ways to be different aren’t there?).  I’ve been doing some research this week on ways to de-stress although I’ve never been a yoga or meditation person – but soothing hobbies, that I can handle.  We’ll see how that works out once I find something that draws me in.  In all – we’re surviving, and I’ll take that and run with it.  🙂

New Books This Week for Review

Christmas ARCs are upon us and I’ve started my Christmas reading list, plus a couple that sounds very interesting:

You Betrayed Me by Lisa Jackson – If The Boot Fits by Rebekah Weatherspoon – The Cowboy Who Saved Christmas (anthology) by Jodi Thomas & Sharla Lovelace & Scarlett Dunn  (Covers linked to Goodreads)

And that was it for this week.  My wallet was very grateful that I didn’t go on a buying spree – for once.  🙂

Hope you found some great titles this week – enjoy the reading adventures that await you.

My Crazy Life This Week

Well.  2020 has been quite the decade so far this year, hasn’t it?  Yeah.  I know, sarcasm is one of my strong points.  🙂

I haven’t done a Stacking the Shelves for a long time, too long actually – so I figured it was time to jump back in.  Plus, I may not have done my own for a while but I’m still following the meme for new book recommendations from all of you.

It’s still a crazy world out there.  I have a loved one who is at great risk should he contract COVID-19 so we have pretty much been in our own lockdown since February 2020.  Maybe the nicest thing I’ve been told during this time is… “Do some shopping therapy now, we all need an escape.”  And my escape is books (and plants, and dragon tee-shirts) so I’m certainly not going to turn away that gift horse pulling a wagon full of books, right?  I won’t bore you with my up-to-the-minute book haul from the past weeks – but I can share what I bought or received as ARCs from NetGalley last week.

But… be ready for next week, for I’ve still got to go to NetGalley and check out the new releases and you know what’s happening right now don’t you?  The Christmas romances are starting to appear like fireflies at twilight so I’ll be adding those to my NetGalley shelf for certain.

Anyway, this week I picked up:

Any Rogue Will Do by Bethany Bennett (The beginning of the Misfits of Mayfair series) — and — Joy to the Wolves by Terry Spear (The beginning of the Red Wolf series) over at NetGalley.  See?  I wasn’t too bad at all this past week  (I think I’m saving space for scrolling later today and the Christmas releases muhahaha)

I did pick up:  (these are Goodreads links to the titles – and the ones above as well)

The Lighthouse & The Summer Sand Pact by Jessie Newton, the first 2 titles in a new series (Women’s Fiction with a touch of romance)

As Long As I Have You by Bella Andre, the beginning of the London Sullivans series

Teasing the Tiger by Rayna Tyler, the 5th title in the Paranormal/Shifter series, Seneca Falls Shifters (for my Shifter Haven blog)

In all, it wasn’t a huge haul of books (for me, anyway) but ones that definitely caught my interest.  I love to get started immediately on a new series instead of having to catch up so those NetGalley finds (and I love any of Terry Spear’s series) were great gems for me.

I hope you found some great new books to dive into during these crazy times.  Be safe, and happy reading!
