Sunday Post/BB&B #120 ~ Birthday & Back To School



This is my take on the Sunday Post, BB&B, & Stacking The Shelves.



Another week has gone bye and I am participating in the Caffeinated Book Reviewer Sunday Post, where we recap the past week on the blog, things to come, showcase books & giveaways plus much more.


I also participate in BB&B/Stacking The Shelves. The BB&B is inspired by The Story Siren, Talk Supe, Pop Culture Junkie, and Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, wither they are bought, borrowed, bagged (Won or Gifted). It can be physical or virtual additions to your shelves.




Personal Notes:


Well the week before last Grandma came back into town to visit. It was her Birthday weekend and so we celebrated. I didn’t get online or post my Sunday thing, since I was running around doing family activities, planning a birthday party, and working.




My son starts his first day of Pre-K on Monday. Oh My! He’s going from half day daycare, to full day Pre-K. My emotions are all over the place. Do you have kids? Are they back in school? How did you handle that first time starting school?




For sum reason summer has flown by. Where has it gone? Lately I have felt that I’m being pulled into too many directions, over stressed, & always busy. This has lead me to debating and think about not doing the Sunday Post anymore and switching to a month-wrap on the blog instead. I would feature all things on the blog that month plus Stacking The Shelves. I might also do a post here or their of new books Borrowed & Bagged. It’s an idea! Thoughts?


Reading: I’ve not gotten much reading done this summer. Life has/is busy, chaotic, and full of activities. The last two weeks; it’s taken me a full week to read just one book. I usually nock out three books in a week. =(  Just take a look at what I read below:

Guardian’s Mate (Shifters Unbound, #9) 
by Jennifer Ashley
Expected publication: September 6th 2016


Guardian's MateShe wasn’t ready to lead…

Chosen as the Guardian of her Montana Shiftertown, wolf Shifter Rae Lyall is facing opposition—for no woman has ever been selected for this powerful position. Still adjusting to the new authority thrust upon her, Rae travels to train with Zander Moncrieff, a Shifter healer, tasked with teaching her about her new role and its responsibilities.


He wasn’t ready to love…

A polar bear Shifter, Zander wears no Collar and follows no rules but his own. Rae finds him arrogant and demanding, yet compelling and intriguing. Zander has no wish to mate but the sassy Guardian is drawing him out of his shell, stirring feelings long suppressed. And when a new threat looms over Rae’s home, she and Zander must race to the rescue, forced closer to danger…and to each other.
