The Verve & Stacking the Shelves (8)

The Verve is our Sunday edition of the weekly memes "The Sunday Post," hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer,
and "Stacking the Shelves," hosted by Tynga's Reviews. We feature the books we bought, borrowed, were gifted and given for review,
as well as share blog news from the past couple weeks and what you might see in the next two.



Hi, LUVs! Thank you to everyone who participated in the Blooming Love Spring Giveaway Hop! The winner hasn't confirmed; same goes for the paperback giveaway of A Bride by Moonlight  by Liz Carlyle. New winners were chosen but haven't confirmed either, so I'll be choosing new winners again. Be sure to check your Inboxes as well as spam folders! :)

While you're here, check out our current giveaways HERE or in the right side bar. Quite a few of those end this week. Now, here's what you might have missed the past two weeks and what to expect in the next two, as well as what I'm stacking on my shelves.
