In My Mailbox #22 / Book Haul #1 / A Shell Full of Books

Hosted by the Story Siren to show people new books coming out soon or already have so people can look them up and add them to their ever growing list of 'to-read'.


As we all know, The Story Siren, Kristi (that's how you spell it, right?) was a accused of plagierism. According to many many blogs, she's been found guilty. Now, as much as I hate it that she has been found guilty, I'm putting on my big girl pants and moving on. This isn't the first time I've heard of this. The first time was when I recieved an email newsletter from The Story Siren about the issue. Now, I truly don't care what happens. It truly doesn't concern me in anyway besides that Kristi posts about new books coming out and events starting up.
Now, I've heard of the Book Haul. Not sure who started it. If anyone finds out, let me know. But I will be doing both. Why you ask? Well, I'm not going to abandon Kristi. No. Even with this big issue, people still read her blog. And the Book Haul thing. Same there. I haven't been blogging for long. I think only six months. Doing both helps me promote my blog without having to do giveaway after giveaway with money I don't have. I'm in high school for Heaven's Sake!
If she's does it again, and I don't believe she will, I will stop doing IMM, but from there I don't know. We'll see.
Anyway, so with this Book Haul thing, I've made a button, and then I did something of my own just for the hell of it.

And then what I'm also calling it.

So, that's the plan people.


This was a good week.
