Sunday Ramblings....Stacking the Shelves & weekly wrap-up

This has been a bad week for me. There was a death in my family so I haven't had much time to read or do much of anything really. I did get a few really great books though and hope that I get some time to escape into a fictional world soon.

I've already read Dare You To and Falling For Her Fiancé - both get a thumbs up!
