Well, it certainly has been a while since my last Stacking the Shelves post. It’s been a busy August, being out of town two weekends ago with the other bloggettes on a reading/writing retreat. This long weekend for the end of the summer, I’m off to the cottage for some much needed reading, writing and relaxing!
These Past Three Weeks on Just a Lil’ Lost…
- Swooned/recapped/reviewed the Backstreet Boys concert (Um, AMAZING.)
- Had our Brunch Book Club July recap for Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry. (I have been horrible this month and still need to finish our August read! This weekend!!)
- Recapped some spoilery, sarcastic, nickname-filled reaction posts for Under the Dome episodes 8, 9 and 10. I’ve also decided to just finish up this 13-episode season… it’s getting too strange and ridiculous to keep up with recaps every week… :/
- Shared how you can get a free postcard with Maggie Stiefvater artwork when you preorder the sequel to Raven Boys!
- Reviewed Mo Meta Blues by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan, Born of Illusion by Teri Brown and Night Film by Marisha Pessl
- Garnered a lot of support for my “No Brats Allowed in the Quiet Zone” post – a piece I wrote after encountering some horrifically belligerent and rude kids on the train, including a response from the transit company itself.
Blue is the Warmest Color by Julie Maroh | For read & review from the publisher
Tampa by Alissa Nutting | For read & review from the publisher. I had actually first heard about this in Entertainment Weekly when it was featured and sounded interesting. Quite the controversial and disturbing conversation starter, it seems.
The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling) | Purchased on Kobo and I’m just about done. REALLY enjoying it. Look out for a review on this shortly!
Gifted & Borrowed
Night Film by Marisha Pessl | Signed finished copy, gifted at the launch party (recap to come later this week!)
A Matter of Days by Amber Kizer | Also gifted from Jenn!
Rags & Bones edited by Melissa Marr and Tim Pratt | Borrowed from Jenn 🙂
