Stacking the Shelves #25 and The Sunday Post


Welcome to our Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday post!
Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga over at Tynga’s Reviews
and The Sunday Post is hosted by Kim over at
Kimba The Caffeinated Book Reviewer,
where we showcase the books we got for the week
and recap what happened on the blog this week!

So, I ended up needing surgery on my foot that I broke back in July.
I had the surgery yesterday, and can’t wait for the healing to start.
For now, it’s lots of pain and meds and sleep.
I’m hoping to catch up on a lot of books on the old TBR list
with this time off, but we’ll see what happens.
Sleep seems to be constantly calling my name…

Head on over for more details on how to join!
