The Sunday Post (#12) + Stacking The Shelves (#8) – I’m Back!

The Sunday PostHey everyone! It’s Sunday which means it’s time for another Sunday Post. The Sunday Post is a meme created and hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer This meme is to tell about your past and upcoming week blogging wise. For more information, you can go here. To join in and link up, you can click here.
I’ll also be partaking in Stacking The Shelves, a meme created  and hosted at Tynga’s Reviews to show off all the books you’ve bought, borrowed, or obtained, illegally or not. 😉 Just kidding. You can link up here.
I’m back! Finally. I took an unfortunate internet hiatus hiatus from October 14th to technically the 22nd, doing only a couple occasional posts at the library. I’m so glad to finally be back and regularly blogging and interacting again. Over the past couple weeks I have read, bought and borrowed a ton of books which I’m so excited to tell you all about in Stacking The Shelves.
I’ll be doing a sort of compilation of my posts since my last Sunday Post entry. 🙂

~Blogging Changes~
While browsing Jamie’s amazing, and I do mean absolutely amazing, blog, The Perpetual Page-Turner, I saw a couple features I was sort of inspired by her Most Wanted and Monthly Rewind features. Thus, I thought I would do my own versions of them.
There will be a monthly feature that will be posted on the first of every month where I discuss all the upcoming books I’m looking forward to the following month. I’m still working on a name for this feature though. Maybe it will just be something simple like Upcoming Releases.
My second monthly feature will just be called Monthly Recap and will be done on the last day of each month, I’ll discuss everything that’s been going on over the past month, new (or returning) music, books, movies, and shows I’ve discovered or love, include some latest obsessions, and blogging information (like stats or most viewed posts). So keep an eye out for those. 🙂
