Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, is all about sharing the book you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.

For Review

With authors like Halle, Hoover, and Tucker this collection of samplers was a no brainer. So excited to try Crave and enjoy some new authors as well.

What books did you get this week? Have you read any of the ones I got?

My Week

This week went by fast. All I want to do is sleep and read. I’m exhausted. I have not been able to sleep lately. No reason in particular, just insomnia acting up and having too much stuff to do. I did sew some American flag pillows for my friend in England for her birthday. I will post about them Monday. They turned out so cute. I kind of want a pair now.

    The samplers don’t really work for me… I mostly enjoy entering books without knowing too much about them, so reading the first few chapters is the wrong way to do it for me 🙂
    I hope you’ll find some gems that you’ll be excited about for later, Jennifer.
    Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading.

  2. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Nice! That’s a totally new to me one! I’m not the best with samplers though because I’m always left needing more! Tread carefully! 😉

    Happy Reading!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    I’ve never read a sampler before. How does that compare to an anthology? I hope you enjoy it. I’ve had weeks or so where I couldn’t sleep. Those times really suck. I hope you get some sleep soon. Happy weekend. 🙂

      I think they aren’t whole stories, just samples of the author’s other books.

    Ohhh that flag sure does sound PRETTAYYY! I would have loved to have seen it! I know your friend will love it! I Hope you start to get lots of rest girl! It’s not good going without sleep, but it’s not like you can help that though! I hope you enjoy your books!

    What exactly is a sampler? Are these short stories connected to a series or are these just a few chapters from various authors?
    I hope your sleep improves soon, a few days without proper sleep and you begin to feel like a zombie.

      I think its just a few chapters from each author from their popular books.

    I found myself in bed last night at 9 and up this morning at 2, but that is 5 hours of sleep. Is that enough? Hope you get some rest. If not, maybe reading a good book is the next best thing. 🙂

    Hope you get some rest soon. Life is happening so fast these days. Take care!

    I really enjoy getting little excerpts of what’s to come. Definitely makes me more excited for some books that I’m interested in and to learn about some I may not have heard of yet. I hope you get some more sleep this week!

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      Me too, I love little samples to just get me excited enough.

    I think I can understand your feelings about sleeping and reading. I have a lot of work to be doing and even had a day off school today in an attempt to catch back up as much as I possibly can. Hopefully this weekend can help me sort some stuff out. Crave sounds interesting. Is it like a short story collection or excerpts?

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      It’s so hard to keep up with everything that needs to be done.
