Nothing new and exciting on my TBR this week. Due to the hurricane, we haven't been receiving mail, and my favorite bookstore lost power and is temporarily closed :(

But that doesn't mean that there's nothing exciting around here!

Finally, a quick Update on Pay It Forward

Though I've had some challenges making it to the post office in the last few weeks, a hurricane and a broken toe cannot stop me. I have four more Pay It Forward bloggers to contact, and I will be in touch with them in the next week!

What's new with you? Let me know in comments, and if you leave me a link, I'll visit you back!


  1. That stinks that your unable to get your mail! Maybe when you are finally able you'll have a mail box full of great bookish surprises (instead of a bunch of bills:)

    1. It's only a minor inconvenience. Three bills did show up last week, but beyond that, nothing!

  2. I'm glad you got through the hurricane okay. I still need to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone. *sigh* I look forward to starting the series though. :)

    1. Loved that one!!!! Hope you get a chance to read it soon.

  3. I'm happy you made it through the hurricane! I hope things can get back to normal soon.

    Days of Blood and Starlight! That one should be coming in for me in the next few days -- I'm EXCITED! :)

    Have a good week!

  4. Well I am happy to hear you survived the hurricane. I am from NJ originally and my heart just goes out to everyone on the East coast. hope things return to normal soon. Thanks for sharing on The Sunday Post

    1. It's terribly sad. Things are slowly getting back to normal for most of us, but for some, it will take a long, long time.

  5. No problem with the post office, I just hope everything gets better for you!
    Hopefully you'll have a better week next week. ^.^

  7. I am glad you are okay!!!
