Stacking the Shelves & Sunday Post

Saturday, August 19, 2017

I am linking up again this weekend with Tynga at Tynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves and Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer for Sunday Post to share all of the books I picked up lately, share my posts for the past week, and also share what's coming up soon!

Life lately:
It's been another pretty busy week for me again.  My husband and I did some PreK school clothes and bookbag shopping for our daughter, there was a food festival, and my husband has got some sort of stomach funk that's been going around.  I also did an insane amount of laundry.  Seriously, where did it all come from?!

Anyway,  I feel like I got a decent amount of reading done this week but there were a lot of underwhelming reads.  I'm hoping my next reads will be a little better.  I'm still holding strong with my "book requesting freeze" streak.  I've decided to start including what books I've gotten from my Kindle Unlimited subscription on Amazon too.  I've actually got 10 books from KU right now but they've all been waiting a while.  I will start including them as I get them now tho.

I also wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone that voted on my survey last week.  I included it in this post too since there are still a few more days left to vote.  I'm super excited to start picking up some of these books.

Recently on my blog:

Coming up next on my blog:

I posted this survey last week too, but there are a couple more days left to vote so I figured I would share it one more time!  Can't wait to see what everyone chooses!

What should I read in September?

My Bookish Art: Wonder Woman

Friday, August 18, 2017

Just in case you are new here: I've been sharing my artwork on my blog for a couple months now.  I was a little unsure about sharing it at first because this is primarily a bookish blog, so I decided to share my book inspired artwork to sort of tie it in.  I've got plans to eventually start an Etsy/Society 6 site but I haven't made the jump yet.  I'm just nervous to take that first step, I think.  This is the 6th painting of mine that I've shared so far on my blog.  I've included the links to the others below my newest painting. Right now, I'm trying to decide what painting I want to try next.  I just need to find the time and motivation. lol

I'm actually not too sure if I'm completely done with this one or not. lol!  I feel like I want to go back and add more highlights/lowlights in her hair, and maybe some more on her face too.  I also think I want to eventually add a really epic background behind her.  But for now, this is my acrylic painting of Wonder Woman.

(some progress shots because I think they are fun to share. lol)
