Sunday Post #87 and Stacking the Shelves January 7th, 2018

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted  @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme.  So, I don't think I've participated in this since last spring.  But I feel like it was important to take part in these weekly memes.  I liked keeping up with what was going on in my blog and checking in with others.  

So, I'm on track with my Goodreads goal, I've finished reading 5 books already. Although a couple were actually started last year.  I'm really liking the calendar I came up with to use this year.  It keeps everything perfect in it.  

There's a monthly calendar where I can keep track of all my tours and other scheduled posts.

For each month I've got a listing of what needs to be read by certain dates, along with a list of books that still need reviews, and then a list of the books I finish that month that I add as I finish them.

And finally, there is a page that I can keep track of all the e-galleys that are available on Netgalley and Edelweiss.  I am trying to improve my Netgalley percentage, and this way I know if I can get it or not, and decide if I will get to it and should download or request it.

The only issues is that I'd like to have a couple extra note pages in it somewhere, and I can't find the filler pages that fit it.  It's weird.  I guess I can just use some regular notebook paper, or try to hole punch the note pages I can find so that they fit.  I'm still working on that.   I'd like to have a page to keep track of my challenges on, as well as one for other tour related notes and such.  But it's got a fun kind of cover that I'm enjoying adding bookish and other fun stickers to.

It's kinda late on Sunday night, so I'm not going to recap most of what happened this past week on the blog, other than I will link you back to my one review post:  Eight Audiobook Mini-Reviews

Coming up this week on the blog:
  • Reviews:  Crazy Sexy Notion  
  • Promos:   Always on My Mind by Ali Parker, Searching for Gertrude by D.E. Haggerty, Author interview with Tawny Stokes - Lions and Tigers and Boys, Cover reveal:  Caution on Ice by S.R. Grey, and Musings of a Gossip Queen by Victoria Bright
  • Can't Wait Wednesday - maybe
If you noticed on my blog planner above, I have four books that need reviews, so I will try to get a couple of those done this week, since I don't work at the bookstore at all.  However, I am going to try to go to a writing group on Monday night.  I'm trying to find one to participate in. Since I lost my one writing partner, and my other one is kind of busy right now, I need something more regular to keep me writing.  So we'll see how that goes.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  Again, it's late, so I'm just going to share the pictures below.  No links or anything.

This was a discard from the high school library where I work.  It's one of my favorite movies/books, so I had to grab this one.

The top 4 are stripped cover books.  The bottom four I bought.  Lots to read!  

I like doing this weekly to help me keep track of what all I am adding/buying.

What did you add to your shelves this week?  How is your week going, and what are you looking forward to?
