Stacking the Shelves + The Sunday Post {10th May)

 
STSmall_thumb[2]
Hi everyone!! thank-you so much for stopping by my blog today.

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews

It's a chance to share what has happened the past week, showcase books and other bookish things we have received and talk about what is coming up on our blog.

As you can see, I have a new blog design made by the very talented Zoe from Chic & Sassy, she has been so wonderful to work with and had everything turned around in such a short period of time; it is everything I could have asked for so I’d love to hear your thoughts??

Also, a very BIG Happy Mothers Day to everyone celebrating tomorrow! my kids are soooo excited, as am I to what the have planned; it's always the most wonderful day and I LOVE being pampered..

  2. I just finished listening to Midnight Crossing… it wasn't bad but I wouldn't put it on my fav list… the characters are great and interesting but the story line is rather ordinary and dull but it was a fun listen!!!! :)

    1. I can't stop checking out my blog design Zoe! I love it, thank you ☺

      I was hesitant about grabbing Midnight Crossing since the past few books in the Sookie series were real let downs so I'm going into this one with low expectations.

    2. I love the new design! I've been wondering about Midnight Crossing. I've read all the Sookie books, but I wasn't sure about her latest.

  10. Great haul, I've seen Midnight Crossing everywhere this week and even though I was a huge fan of the Sookie books I don't know if I want to get this one. I've seen Love Letters to the Dead everywhere too, it's on my wishlist so looking forward to hearing what you think of it!

    Happy reading :)
