Hi all! Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Just thought I'd show off the books I got this week :). Some YA, NA and adult thrown in the mix.
List of Books: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack
The Bride Wore Size 12 by Meg Cabot
Size 12 and Made to Rock by Meg Cabot
The Dirty Girls Book Club by Savanna Fox
Sway by Kat Spears
Loop by Karen Akins
Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole
First up to read:
I really enjoyed the first Rusk University book, and I have high hopes for Book 2 :). Also, Dead of Winter is FINALLY here, so I'm pretty excited. Really love this series! Sway has one of the best summaries I've read for a YA in a while, and I remember when Karen Akins was first making the writing contest rounds with Loop. Hooked me then, and I'm still hooked, looking forward to reading. I hope you all got a great haul as well!

Hi there! This first IWSG post of 2015 is about introductions and goals, so here we go.
Hmm...well, I love to read, write and dance--which is why I'm a dance instructor :). Tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, you name it, I teach it (except for ballet). I've written four complete manuscripts so far, all YA. I try to write books that I'd love to read. At this point, I'm not sure which route I'll pursue as far as publishing goes--and that leads me to my writing goals of 2015!
My goals are to: Write a(nother) book! Learn more about all of the publishing options available. There are so many avenues, just have to find the best one for my books. And I love hearing what worked for other people/their stories which is one of the many reasons I'm so happy to be a part of IWSG! Write (at least) 6 more book reviews for the blog, so I can reach my goal of 100 reviews. Encourage other writers. Tweet them, comment, rate their books, review etc. Tell them when I enjoy their work, even if I feel like they might think I'm just trying to suck up. Gah, I hope no one thinks that :/.
And also: Never, never, never give up!
Okay, so those are my goals; can't wait to check out all the other posts. I hope everyone's 2015 is off to a great start!
