Bought, Bagged and Wrapping it Up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookviews and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews, Talk Supe and Caffeinated Reviewer.
STS #158 – Bought Borrowed & Bagged #108
Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is all about the latest additions to your library – virtual or actual, with books that are bought, borrowed, won or ARCs you will be reading soon. Bought Borrowed and Bagged is a homage to to Barron’s Books and Baubles from KMM’ Fever series, and is hosted by Braine over at Talk Supe. Without further ado, here’s what I bought, borrowed or bagged this past week:
Thank you, Jana Aston and Rutherford Press!
Thank you Carina Press and NetGalley!
Thank you Harper Voyager and Edelweiss!
I recently read Blood Red Kiss, and one of the novellas was from the Otherworld Assassins series, and I had the first novel in the series on my kindle (where it had been hiding for years!) and read that straight after – and knew I needed this second book as well.
This one has been on pre-order ever since that was possible… because Raphael and Elena *sighs and swoons*
The Sunday Post #108 – Wrapping it Up
Kim @ The Caffeinated Reviewer, is our hostess with the mostest for the weekly Sunday Post where I’m wrapping things up. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.
It’s both kind of on and off the blog, but this happened :
Nalini Singh actually mentioned me for helping out with something in French… A while back on Twitter, she asked about how to say something specific in French, and I answered. Can you imagine my happy surprise to find that mention? In the actual published book? I’m elated and giddy right now!
This also happened! I have given feedback 500 times on NetGalley! And my Feedback ratio is 93%. I’m really happy about this, as I really try my best to make sure I read all the ARCs I request, even at the detriment of the books I purchase.
I made a lot of progress on my thesis this week, and I have officially signed up to do my defence in February next year. I think having a real deadline will help me stay motivated, too, as I can procrastinate with the best of them until I don’t have a choice anymore. And NaNo really helps, too! Having my word count out there is exhilarating!
