Sunday Book Share #11


I'm participating in both The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Each meme allows book bloggers the chance to share books they've received and different posts and events at their blog.

I can't believe this week is the American Thanksgiving holiday. The year is flying by so fast. Still, I'm ready for a 4-day weekend. I'll be having a quiet holiday at home, how about you? What are your plans, those of you who celebrate it?

The blog had a busy week last , this week should be quieter.  I have 4 giveaways going on, 1 of which ends today so check them out! 3 are international and 1 is US only.

I received this lovely swag from romance author Kim Bowman for participating in the Astraea Press book club discussion of her book "Ghosts in the Graveyard."

And that was my week, how was yours? Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating, and belated Divali wishes to everyone who celebrated. Don't forget to leave a link in your comment so I can check out your sharing post.

    1. Kimba, I have a lot of sources for the kindle freebies but some I pick up from Melissa's Mochas Mysteries and More and some from Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf. Apparently there's something magic about the name Melissa. :D

  5. Hooray for 4 day weekends! At this point I could use a full blown vacation, and the holidays haven't even started yet.
    Great haul and that's some awesome looking swag.I have all of the Grimm Prequels on my Kindle but I've only read the first one, it's certainly interesting and different. I'm going to read the second one soon to see if I can get a feel of the whole world.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving week!

  17. That Lumberjack InLove Cover makes me laugh everytime I see it! I could spend hours thinking of captions for it. My friend Barbara @Basia's Bookshelf really liked it. I can't wait to see what you think! Have a Happy Thanksgiving, Bea!
