Sunday Post #3 and Stacking the Shelves

Today here in Canada we are celebrating Thanksgiving. As I prepare to join my family for a yummy feast, I just wanted to take a moment to share with you all a couple of things that I am thankful for:

  • My family including my parents, brother, boyfriend and sister-in law. I am so fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life and I love them all.

  • My kitten Nova, who came into my life during one of its lowest points. He gives me a reason to get out of bed each day and is always keeping me laughing with his silly antics.

  • And you! Yes, you! To all the people who take time out of their day to visit my blog and read my posts. These past ten months have been such a great learning experience for me. I have really come to cherish sharing my love of books with others who do as well and I look forward to connecting with even more bloggers in the future.

What are you all thankful for? I’d love to hear from you all. Leave me a message in the comments.

This past week I spent trying to read, read, read! Because it turns out there was a whole lot more to my TBR for October than I originally thought. As I mentioned in my last weekly wrap up I was sent The Imposter by Suzanne Woods Fisher for review. I have also been reading Pane and Suffering by Cheryl Hollon on my Kobo through Aldiko Book Reader until the program started crashing for some reason. It turns out that there is some sort of glitch in the latest update, which has gotten me quite stressed out. Thankfully there isn’t a set due date for me to complete this book by. Then I was accepted to join 2 additional tours and another which is still pending.

Whew! Now, I’m not complaining because I am grateful for the opportunity to read and review these books. I just hope that I am able to complete them all in time.

I hope you all had a wonderful week and weekend. Did you do anything fun? Also did you add any new books to your shelves? Let me know in the comments.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! Hope it's a great holiday. I like the look of Pane and Suffering- I've seen that one before and it looks like a fun cozy. :)

    1. Thank you Greg!
      I'm enjoying Pane and Suffering so far.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! I think it's such a lovely idea to have a day to ponder over the things you have in your life and are thankful for. I'm glad I found your corner of the Internet ^^ Making blogger friends certainly is one of the best perks of blogging and I'm really glad to have met you Melissa :)

    1. Thank you Soudha!
      I'm glad I found your corner of the internet as well. Seeing as how we started our blogs around the same time, it has been wonderful to watch them both grow in their unique ways.
      I'm glad we met as well. :)

  3. I know what you mean by swamped with reading! I keep getting review requests, and despite putting a sign up on my request page saying "no more requests" (that's the short version), I'm still getting them! Eugh! Can't these people read?! Or are they just plain rude? *hmph!!*
    Anyway, onto thankfulness, he he. I'm thankful for my family :) For having people in my life who care about me. I'm grateful for my life (I suffered with depression about a year and a half ago, so I mean it). And I'm grateful for the opportunities life keeps giving me :) There's always a silver lining!

    Happy belated Thanksgiving!

    1. I'm thankful to be sent books to review. Although lately the people who have been emailing me with requests to review their books are from genres I don't read.
      I hear ya about the depression. It is something that I have been dealing with since my mid-teens. Blogging is definitely a positive help though. Stay strong!
      Thanks for stopping by Amy.
