In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga’s Reviews. Here we can share what new books we’ve picked up this past week.
No new books from the libray this week. Trust me, this is a good thing, because I have 23 items out on my card. And the funny thing is, that is low for me
So I thought I would feature some of the amazing books I’ve been approved for on Nergalley. I always forget to showcase them on these posts, so today it’s all Netgalley!
Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson
Rapunzel Untangled by Cindy C. Bennett
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
Cinders and Sapphires by Leila Rasheed
Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black
Yeah, super excited about this one!!!
Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff
I just finished this. It is really good! A review should be up soon.
What books did you get this week?
I didn’t get any new books for Christmas. Well, my mom did get me Opal by JLA, but I already owned the ebook, so I didn’t feel like featuring it again on IMM/STS. I’m glad to have the physical copy though, so I have all the books in the series so far. They have such pretty cover
- I work a really odd week this week. I work Saturday, 12/29, from 12-5 for comp time, Sunday off, Monday 9-5, Tuesday off for New Year’s Day, Wednesday 9-5, and then I took off Thursday-Monday.
- At work, the library was awarded this grant for a family book discussion group. It’s awesome, but I have to read all the books they sent. Which isn’t a bad thing, of course, but it isn’t that easy to read at work. I am constantly interrupted. Below is an example
- A patron at the library (I work in a public library) was watching porn on the public PCs on Thursday. I had to let him know he couldn’t do that, and saw WAY too much on his screen. That kind of thing isn’t really common at the library where I work, but at the main branch the librarians have to deal with that all the time.
- Syracuse got a ton of snow on Wednesday night/ Thursday morning. We ended up with about a foot of snow. That’s not really an uncommon thing here, but still stressful driving to work. It was really wet snow, though, so it was really heavy to shovel. My back is a little tense today because of all the shoveling I did. And I had to shovel a little area in the yard for my dogs to do their business. It was as tall as Daphne’s back!
