Bookish Problems While Moving

Do you ever feel like the world is continuously spinning and you're reaching your hands out to grab onto anything to settle things down enough to get reoriented? 


That's my life right now!

So many things are going on right now. On the heels of the end of selling a house from across the (just a week til the sale is done! WOO HOO!), we are in the midst if another move! Most of my days these past few weeks has been checking out the ads and going to see houses, rinse and repeat. It's left little room for reading and writing has been lessened to a few hours whenever I can sneak away. 

I'm thinking about all the book boxes I have to move and it reminds me of that Facebook reading meme: 

Goodness yes!

Just thinking about all those boxes to move are kinda freakin' me out right about now. It's kinda strange to think back to just a few years when paper books were everything. Now I'm figuring out how many books to get on ebook so I can possibly give my paper books away.

Then I think about actually parting from my books and start getting kinda bummed. It's strange because I love my book collection and I'm looking forward to a place where I can put them on the shelves and have my library.

Sigh. Bookish problem #587...

Anyway, I'm a bit backed up on my reviews (Sorry to folks who have been waiting!) I feel like I need to hire an army to get through my book review stack so if I haven't responded to your book review inquiry or if you are waiting for me to post a review, it may be a bit until I'm settled but I'm trying my hardest to get through them!

For folks waiting on my new works, fear not because I have some goodies in store for you in the next month(s) or so.

Stay Tuned!

Hey gal, I hear you!
I've never actually moved from my house, but a few years ago I had a complete renovation of the house I live in and had to pack up everything, move it around as the house was restored room by room, then put everything back out.
It was a nightmare!

I feel like you about my books. I love my paperbacks. I love my hardcovers even more... but ebooks of some books really sound alluring ;-)

Hugs to you, Sarah! You feel my pain! :-)

I bet that was a headache moving them around. I'm dreading doing the same with mine. Maybe meeting oneself halfway is best. Keep the hardcovers and paperbacks of the must haves and the "eh, I can let that one go" books move to ebook? Hmmmm...juuuust maybe.....

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

~Excerpt~ My breath caught as soon as he said the name and my eyes searched his features, looking for the little boy I had known…

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
