Stacking The Shelves: February

What is Stacking The Shelves all about?
Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Book Blogger Love-A-Thon! Interview Swap!

 The short and sweet version of what a Love-A-Thon is about, here it goes: Basically it is just like a read-a-thon except for blogs! It’s a full 24 hours of commenting on new-to-you and some of your older favourite blogs, following bloggers, tweeting about awesome blog posts, and telling other bloggers just how much we love them! For a full list of the events and what time they are happening, you can check out the schedule right here.

I did my interview swap with Alyssa from Books Take You Places!
Be sure to check out her blog as she's doing Project Fairytale for February!
I commented on her answers underneath in pink!

Why did you start blogging? Any reason that you spilt your blog into personal and books?
I actually had a personal blog for a VERY short time and this was years ago when I didn't really have the time or desire to keep up with it. Years later I was in grad school and was looking through book blogs for reference and I found The Book Smugglers and just fell in love with what they were doing. It seemed like a great outlet for two things I loved: reading and writing. So I made an almost instant decision and started blogging. My first review was for Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion and I actually did a mini book trailer. Things have changed since then but I am glad I joined this awesome community!

I noticed you work in a library (very jealous!) how did you get in to that career?
For as long as I remember, I had wanted to be an English teacher. I even went as far as completing half of the EDU program in my undergrad studies. It didn't feel right and I dropped out of the program but still graduated with my Bachelor's in English (with a concentration in early literature - yay Shakespeare!) after that I was so confused and on the fence about my career. I worked part time in a library and took a whole year off and researched and thought about what I wanted and finally decided that librarianship is where my heart was. So I took my GRE on a whim, applied to Drexel - thinking I wouldn't get in as it was a dream school of mine and was SHOCKED when I got in with scholarships!! I finished the two year program in a year and 10 weeks and I couldn't be happier. I love everything about my career - just need to find that full time job now!
I love how you fell in to the career, librarianship doesn't seem to be the same in the UK as the USA! I think nowsdays a full time job is the holy grail!

I’m awful at thinking of a favourite book! Can you name your top 3 books from your childhood and from now?
From my childhood my favourites are definitely The Wizard of Oz series by L. Frank Baum, The Narnia series by C.S. Lewis and The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling! Now, as a "grown up" I have a hard time choosing so I am going to go with books I can (and have) read multiple times. My favorite series is definitely The Sevenwaters series by Juliet Marillier (or all books by her, really), The Black Swan by Mercedes Lackey and still, The Harry Potter series.
I always go with books I've reread- Harry Potter, Wizard of Oz and Narnia are big favourites of mine!

Do you have a genre that you consistently love?
I honestly can't think of a book dubbed a "fantasy" that I haven't enjoyed. I am reading A LOT of YA now but I think it's because of the constant recommendations from fellow bloggers.

What’s your favourite part of blogging? What’s the worst part?
My favourite part has to be the community of bloggers. There is consistently someone to listen, someone to cheer you up, someone to recommend your next read, etc. I have quite honestly found some of my best friends through blogging.
The worst part is watching those less than honest or enthusiastic bloggers. I can say that reading is 100% my favourite thing to do and I blog for me and for the joy of it, not for the free books or swag. It makes me kind of sick to see some who do it for the wrong reasons. Also, a while back blogging started to feel too much like "work" and I came near to quitting. You really have to find a good balance to enjoy it as much as you can.
It is a fine line between feeling like a hobby and feeling like work especially when you have a lot on in your life but I love the community too!

Since joining the blogging world, do you find yourself picking up books you wouldn’t have read before?
I think I am going to try and pick up some contemporaries this year which I have yet to read and enjoy. I read SOME YA before but I was reading more adult fantasy. Since I started blogging I have definitely upped the YA reads!
Yes to contemporaries! I love them :)

Totally stole this one from you!: “You find yourself in front of seven identical doors, these seven doors lead to seven places: Narnia, Neverland, Wonderland, Hogwarts, Camelot, Middle Earth and Westeros. Which door do you go through? Why that door? What happens?”
This one is hard for me. I know Neverland is out, unless I could be a pirate. Wonderland might be too much weird for me. Middle Earth would be gorgeous but unless I was an Elven princess, not for me. Narnia would be amazing since I could be friends with SANTA but overall, not magical enough for me. I have issues with Camelot and Westeros because one on hand I would LOVE to live here: the wardrobe and men with SWORDS! However, I like to think of myself as a BAMF and I couldn't deal with the "man rules the roost" lifestyle. Unless I could wield my own weapon and kick butt with the boys, these two are out. That leaves us with Hogwarts and let me say YES PLEASE! This one really has excellent benefits, even with my future husband Sirius Black being dead at this time.

Check out my interview here!
Much Love!

Divergent by Veronica Roth

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor, Abnegation , Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite. On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her...

I put this book off for ages- what a mistake! It lives up to the hype and more!

What I loved:
Tris-  I admired her determination and drive! At times she really frustrated me with naivety and her inability to take direction but she was genuinely a good person. I loved how supportive she could be when needed and how she honoured the actual principles of Dauntless without losing the best parts of Abnegation.
Four- What an intriguing character! Hard to discuss him without spoiling it! I loved that I was able to guess the secret and still be intrigued and surprised. I liked how Four was withdrawn and low key but knew how to command respect and always seemed to be adhering to the basic principals of Dauntless
Side Characters- I loved the side cast! All the new Dauntless initiates were so diverse and had such contrasting motivations it was interesting to see how they coped with the pressures of initiation. I especially loved how Tris interacted both the Dauntless initiates and the Transfers. I liked getting to see the Abnegation people even briefly and I liked all the little insights in to the other sections through the side characters.
Setting- The setting was heavily influenced by the concept and the plot, each section had a part of the city. I liked how Abnegation was laid out and how Tris explained how the city was laid out as a whole. I'm really intrigued by what the rest of the world is like outside of the city and how they became the way they are!
Concept- I really liked this concept of Dystopia! I liked how it was based on personality not jobs or wealth. I loved the 5 different sections- very clever personality divisions. It was all explained really well seeing as it was Tris's point of view and she only had personal experience of two of them. My friend and I spent ages discussing which section we'd be in.
Fear landscapes- I loved this idea! It was a clever way to rank the initiates and really revealed the deeper fears that everyone has. I think it also showed the true meaning of Dauntless- not the absence of fear itself but the courage to work through the fear.

What I didn't love as much:
Character decisions- I loved Tris but my gosh she was told to lie low and she just didn't! She didn't seem to have any self preservation! I also disliked some the inevitable decisions
No Principles- Some of the initiates were so ruthless and cruel and  they got away with it. Fearlessness is not cruelty!

I loved this book- I can't believe i put it off for so long! Both my friend and her dad borrowed it while we were on holiday!

Did you love Divergent?
Much Love!

Lennon's Jinx by Chris Myers


Sometimes, you don’t get to choose who you fall for...

Lennon spends most of his time raising his little sister Currie while trying to skate through his senior year of high school. He prefers groupies with no-strings attached but finds himself strangely attracted to Jinx, the straight-A student in his choir. Lennon’s curiosity overrules his good sense as he tries to peel away the layers to discover the reason for Jinx’s skittishness.
Jinx conceals the black truth about herself from her friends. She won’t admit to them that she screwed up big time, losing her first love and what she once held most precious.
When Lennon’s band holds auditions to replace their keyboard player, Jinx comes to tryout and almost leaves after seeing Lennon. Despite the fact she despises him, she joins the band to nurture her love of music that will hopefully ease the guilt gnawing away at her.
Like the rest of his band mates, Jinx soon witnesses Lennon battling his infamous father for the custody of Currie. While confronting his pent-up anger at his dad, Lennon exposes vulnerabilities he had no intention of letting any girl ever see, especially Jinx. Their reckless pasts may bring them together or further complicate their already messy lives
Lennon's Jinx was much more layered than I expected and the title made much more sense than I first thought!

What I loved:
  • Lennon- I liked Lennon- he was such a good guy at heart! I loved how he was with his sister and Zoe, and how he remained as responsible as possible. I was with him on hating his parents- I probably would have held on to that hatred! I loved his principles and
  • Zoe and Currie- I loved these two- so cute and grown up for little girls! I liked how involved Lennon and the band were with them and how the Novaks accepted Lennon and Currie :) Their whole friendship was very heartbreaking!
  • The Band- The chemistry and the skill in the band was so detailed! I loved Clive despite his British slang being very off! He was so charming and so good with Zoe. Danny was very fun and much more dedicated to the commercialising the band. I even liked Susan, for a band girlfriend she was nice and not completely crazy!
  • Rena- Rena was Jinx's best friend and she was so good to her! Rena seemed to know that what Jinx needed when she needed it and provided shelter when she needed it. I am so  intrigued to know more about her though, like the story with her ex etc.

What I didn't love as much:
  • Ending- I didn't really like led up to the end. It was kind of anticlimactic and a lot seemed to happen at once! Although I have read Lennon's Jinx is part of a series so that might explain it!
  • Parents- Lennon's parents were absolutely awful! In a way his Dad was far worse as he left them completely! If I was Lennon I would have taken custody and kicked Heather out! Jinx's mum was a bad parent as well- she allowed her new husband's accusations of Jinx smoking weed to cloud her judgement of her own child!
I really liked the chemistry between the band and Lennon and Jinx!
Have you read Lennon's Jinx?
Much Love!

Speechless by Hannah Harrington

Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret
Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.
Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she’s ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.
But there’s strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she’s done. If only she can forgive herself.

I've wanted to read Hannah Harrington since Saving June so I jumped at the chance to request this one on NetGalley!

What I loved:
  • Chelsea- I loved Chelsea! Yes she was obviously flawed but she had a very strong character- most teenage girls gossip but no one thinks of the consequences. I think it said alot about Chelsea that she shared the gossip because she was intrigued not that she was disgusted or judgemental. She was brave enough to recognise her role and reported it despite the consequences. I thought it was realistic to portray her as occasionally fantasising about what life would be like without confessing and missing Kirsten. I loved how being mute really enhanced  her character and how she developed relationships with new friends. 
  • Sam- I have so much love for him- he is the kind of guy who gets over looked in school but is really sweet and decent! I liked how he gave Chelsea a chance and got to know her despite her lack of talking. He was in a difficult position as Noah's best friend but he didn't judge Chelsea or treated her too harshly. He was such a good friend to Asha and how he battled with how to treat Noah after the incident- it made him very relatable and realistic.
  • Diner Crew- I really enjoyed the whole vibe of the diner and the staff! I loved Asha, she was so warm and sweet. I loved how quirky she was! Dex and L, exactly the kind of fun loving couple you imagine owning a retro diner couple I would love to work for them! I liked the dynamic between Andy and Chelsea and how it developed- he could see that she hadn't envisioned the consequences and Chelsea knew she owned him an apology.
  • Plot- I loved the subject matter! People assume homophobic attacks happen 'other places' with people they don't know. However two guys who Chelsea thought she knew turned out to be violent bigots. I think it was an important message on discrimination and gossip.

What I didn't love as much:
  • Kirsten- Such a mean girl! She was so selfish and self absorbed- she knew what they would do and didn't even attempt to stop them. I thought the way she threw Chelsea to the wolves was awful- they had been BFFs for years! 
  • School System- Chelsea was publicly involved in a violent incidence and then stopped talking and none of the teachers or counsellors really attempted to check on her!!!

I absolutely loved the themes and the characters!

Is Saving June just as good?
Much Love!

Cover Reveal! Trust in Me by Bethany Lopez!

Roni’s dreams of becoming a contemporary dancer were smashed under the brutal rage of her ex-husband's fists. Getting divorced and starting over at the age of twenty-two was never her plan, but maybe in Texas, she'll find her path. When the town's local player, Rich, opens a Rec Center, she sees a way to rekindle her dancing dreams...and maybe have a little fun with her sexy new boss.
Rich never expected to fulfil his dreams in the town he planned to leave behind, but that's just what he's doing. His reputation as a noncommittal ladies' man might make it challenging to earn respect in the business world, but he's willing to prove that he's serious. In fact, when it comes to pursuing Roni, he's more than willing. But she's taking a page out of his book, not wanting to risk another relationship. Can he convince her that his playboy days are done and that she can trust him with her heart?

I've revealed all of the Friends & Lovers series!
This blurb intrigues me the most- I think Roni's past sounds unique!
Trust in Me should be available 5th March!

Have you read the Friends and Lovers series?
Much Love!

Mini-Bloggiesta Wrap Up!

bloggiesta finish line
This post is both goals and wrap up! I thought being offline would make me productive and I think it works!
*Catch up with comments- I always reply to my comments but I'd fallen behind!
Success- All comments are replied to!
*Comment on other blogs- I want to take the time to comment and discover new blogs.
Success- I commented on a few blogs and followed some new ones!
*Get organised- I really mucked up my January schedule as you can see in my review
Success- I was going to print a blog planner but I knew it would end up being something I never got around to! Instead I made my little schedule with updated colours and made sure to include NetGalley books etc. I also scheduled a few different posts :)
*Draft up memes for Feb- Most of the memes I do follow a simple format, it would save time if I had them ready to go!
Success- All Monday posts drafted up! No Top Tens planned for Feb and Stacking The Shelves is drafted!
*Write at least 2 reviews- I need to catch myself back up with reviews!
Fail- I didn't fully write up any reviews due to extra work hours and a killer hangover... But I did drafted up quite a few with covers, blurbs, review notes and ratings!

Not too bad! I really enjoyed this mini Bloggiesta burst- I managed to get myself slightly back on track  and found a few new blogs!
I will definitely be signing up for the next one in March!

How did you do with Bloggiesta?
Reach all your goals?
Much Love!
