What's Happening + Stacking the Shelves June 25th



Golden by Jessi Kirby {GoodReads}



The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen {GoodReads}
Georgetown Academy Season One by Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz {GoodReads}


The blog was pretty quiet this week. I posted a review for GOLDEN by Jessi Kirby and gave it 5 stars.

My other two posts were basically cries for help lol. My first plea was on the behalf of Charlotte and Ezra, the main characters in my latest novel, WAITING FOR THE STORM. Sales for the book have been really slow and it’s breaking my heart that people aren’t experiencing Charlotte and Ezra’s story. It’s my favourite book I’ve written, and the reviews that have come in have been awesome, there just aren’t many of them. I’m having a fan appreciation even where I’ve reduced the price of my first novel, BLUE SKY DAYS, to 99 cents until July 11th, and I’m offering people who review WAITING FOR THE STORM a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card and $25 PayPal cash. I’d be so grateful if you’d check out the Fan Appreciation Event and consider either buying BLUE SKY DAYS on sale, and/or buying and reviewing WAITING FOR THE STORM. My second post for help was about the Canadian Reading Challenge where I asked whether there was enough interest and if anyone would be willing to co-host with me.

The Robber Bride by Jerrica Knight-Catania {GoodReads}
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leaviit {GoodReads}

I'd never heard of The Robber Bride before this week, but it's about a girl who's a Robin Hood-type character (I've been obsessed with Robin Hood since I was, like, three), plus it was free! I've been wanting to read Going Vintage and The Summer of Skinny Dipping for ages, so I was excited to find them both on sale this week on Kindle.  

What books did you get this week? Tell me in the comments below or post a link to your Stacking the Shelves/Book Haul/In My Mailbox/Showcase Sunday, etc. Happy reading! <3

  7. Robber Bride sounds so good! I hadn't heard of it either, but a girl Robin Hood rocks. Going Vintage and The Summer of Skinny Dipping look like nice beach reads. Yay for getting them on sale :) I love ebook sales. Nice haul!

  10. Hi Marie! I found your blog through the linky list for Stacking the Shelves, not even realizing that your book is on my post this week!! How funny. If it makes you feel any better, I can't wait to read WAITING FOR THE STORM! I jumped at the chance to be a part of the blog tour.

    I've been dying to read GOING VINTAGE! I read it's such a cute story. THE SUMMER I WENT SKINNY DIPPING looks really good, as well.
