The Sunday Post (3)+Stacking the Shelves (5)


This week's Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves will include my experience at the Fight For the Future Tour with Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner, Margaret Stohl, and Marie Lu. Along with seeing my badass swag, a possible giveaway, and some long-awaited books.
 
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on the blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Loving the Language of Literacy Lookout and Lookback
-I now have a blog button and other various design features are coming this way for Loving the Language of Literacy. One of the most exciting features is my rating system! It still follows my classic out of 5 star review, then a number out of 10, but instead of stars, there will now be ink jars! Someone please tell me this isn't the most adorable rating system you have ever seen?

-I have been in this inexplicable reading slump. My process has literally been this. 1. Read book 2. Write a review saying it was a fun quick read 3. Feel bad because I have nothing specific to say. I'm not sure if this is my personal slump for having expectations too high. Or if it's that the books are actually un-gripping. 
-I have been pretty consistent with my made up schedule and do not feel lousy about my posting. 
-I went to the Fight For the Future Tour at the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in Redondo Beach today! I am doing an entire Spontaneous Saturday post on it, maybe even a two-parter because I have over 45 minutes worth of footage. I am so excited to share my experience and maybe even a giveaway!
-I have been officially blogging for two months and one day on Loving the Language of Literacy which is an awesome accomplishment for inconsistent me. In that short time I have reached 75 Bloglovin followers for which I am so grateful for and appreciative to all my lovely readers. 
-If you have any ideas for a Spontaneous Saturday post, blog features, post requests, or anything else, leave it in the comments below, tweet me @sslluvsbooks, or shoot me an email at sslluvsbooks@gmail.com

Stacking the Shelves 

"Stacking the Shelves" is a meme when you list the books you've added to your shelves, virtual, physical, or whatever shape or form you get them. I am now combining "Stacking the Shelves" with the "Sunday Post" because it is so much a personal preference about when and what you post "Stacking the Shelves" with. I am doing this meme once a week, so you will probably see nothing but library books because originally, I only did "Stacking the Shelves" as an every-time-I-go-to-the-library thing. As people may know, “Stacking the Shelves” posts are hosted by “Tynga's Reviews”  
{Disclaimer: I am in no means trying to brag about what I got, and merely shared this post for the benefit of my followers seeing what I so generously received, and as a favor to the lovely people that sent me things}
