Added to the Bookshelf – 4-7-13

Posted April 7, 2013 by Melissa in IMM, In My Mailbox, Showcase Sunday | 23 Comments

Sharing the week’s bookish news and the books & bookish goodies that I’ve bought, borrowed, won, or been gifted and have added to my bookshelves over the past week!

(Inspired by Mailbox Monday, IMM, Clock Rewinders and the like)

Notes From Melissa:

As I sit at my desk preparing this post, I’m looking out the window and seeing for the first time in what seems like forever: Sunny skies and what I know are warmer breezes…we’re supposed to see 60 today.  I am so thrilled that sweater and flip flop season is finally here…I hope it lasts!

In other good news…my work schedule has finally leveled out a bit..hopefully this will last and I’ll have more time to devote to other aspects of my life including blogging:)

And one last piece of happy news:

Mine is one of the blogs to be mentioned in the upcoming paperback of SHADOW AND BONE by Leigh Bardugo which releases on May 7th and will include the following bonus material:

-A letter from Mal to Alina written the night before he and his friends entered Fjerda to track the stag

-An extensive Q&A with Leigh Bardugo
-A sneak peek at Siege and Storm

I am so thrilled:)  Here’s a sneak peak…

        YAY for spring and the easing of crazy work schedule! 🙂

        Congrats on being named in Shadow and Bone, that’s wonderful!

      2. Great week! I still need to get my hands on Fragments! Ugh! Just haven’t wanted to fork out the money yet–yeah, I’m cheap, I know. Happy reading!

        Check out my SP & STS.

      3. I know I am excited about being in Shadow and Bone as well. My blog is just a couple of lines below yours. Super cool! I love Sarah Addison Allen, I hope you enjoy the Peach Keeper. It wasn’t my favorite of her books, but still really good. Have a wonderful week, Melissa!

      4. Congrats!!
        It’s so awesome when your thoughts are featured in a book. It totally is an honor, and I love reading those little blurbs and seeing blogs that I visit in the books. Enjoy your week!!

      5. Congrats for getting the shout-out in Shadow and Bone! I’m eager to listen to Heart Like Mine, and Ruins also looks appealing. Happy reading and listening 🙂
