Best of the Bunch Montly Wrap-Up+Sunday Memes


Best of the Bunch is a monthly blog hop at the end of each month hosted by Always Lost in Stories, where we can share which books we have read or reviewed in that month, decide on our personal favourite and give that book our Best of the Bunch award.

To join in simply write your blog post telling us which books you have read or reviewed over the month, (and which book gets your Best of the Bunch award for that month), and then stop back here to add your link to the Mr. Linky. Visit the other blogs in the links to get some awesome new book recommendations.

-I was nominated for another Liebster Award by my good friend Tina Chan from The Book Landers!
-I swear I will get my Fight for the Future Blog post up. It is a huge amount of work that I haven't felt like doing, but it will be up this month.
-I have something I'm trying to plan for my week of Spring Break from 3/16-3/22, I want to post a review a day to catch up on reviews. This might not work, but cross your fingers. The name is a W.I.P. but it will probably be #LuvLL

-Math Field Day is over! I finally can come home before 5pm! Even though I didn't place, I still feel honored to be part of the team and learn more about math. I actually know what a mantissa is! 
-Spring Break is this month! That means a whole week off and a whole week to read! I'm actually going to Portland for a few days and that means Powells Books and a huge Stacking the Shelves coming up :) 
-Remember to leave any thoughts, comments, or concerns in the comments below because I LOVE hearing from you. What do you think of me adding all the new memes? Is it a waste of blog space? Too much work? More fun for all?

February Best of the Bunch
I know I shouldn't pick two, but I have one contemporary pick and one sci-fi. I read one for a blog tour (the giveaway is still going on) and the other from a library haul. 
These are both 5 ink jar books and I highly recommend them to anyone that will listen to crazy ole me. Peaceful Genocide was one of the best science-fiction books I have ever read and the giveaway for a Kindle Fire and signed copies is still going on until tomorrow! My review for TSWSYL is very rambly because of how much I love that book and because its a 'feels' review.

"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}
