Stacking the Shelves #95: December 4, 2021

Stacking The Shelves is a book meme created by Reading Reality and it is about sharing books that you are adding to your shelves, whether it's physical or virtual.  This means including books that you bought from the store or online, books you borrowed from friends or from the library, books you've reviewed, gifts and ebooks!

Hey everyone! I can't believe that it's almost December!  Pretty soon, 2021 will be over and we will be going into 2022!  I can't believe how fast 2021 is going by and I will say that this year was...okay.  It was a bit better than 2020, that's for sure, but there's still a lot of drama going on in the world now than ever before.  Hopefully, things will get better in 2022.

☀Daily Book Chat #43:☀ Where Have I Been all this time?


Hello everyone! Welcome to my  ☀Daily Book Chat☀ where I do some SERIOUS discussions that fellow book fans will get a kick out of and relate their thoughts about the subject to other book fans!

Today's discussion question is: Where Have I Been all this Time?

Now, you are probably wondering: now wait a minute: what does this have to do with books?

Well actually, it has a lot to do with why I haven't been blogging that much lately.  For the last few months, I haven't been as active on my blog as I used to be and that's because a lot of things had happened to me that affected my blogging time.  

So, here's the lowdown on what's been going on with me and blogging:

1) 2020 happened...

So, you guys know about the year 2020 and all the horrible things that happened that year (COVID).  Because of all the horrible things happening in 2020 and the fallout from that year, I got a bit stressed out and that stress continued to haunt me in 2021.  Because of that, I wasn't able to read as much as I used to and therefore, I wasn't able to do that much book reviews.  I'm still having trouble trying to get back into reading, so I'm hoping that I can get out of this reading slump soon.

2) YouTube became a thing...

So starting in 2020 (when the pandemic started), I started paying a lot of attention to my YouTube channel and changing a lot of things on my channel to make it more creative and more polished than how I had set it up years ago.  Because of this, I spent more time making videos for YouTube and less time in reading the books that I really wanted to read.  Despite this, I'm loving how my YouTube channel is turning out, so if you want to check out my YouTube channel, check it out here:



3) I fell into the dreaded Reading Slump...

So, this is something that almost always happens to me (unfortunately).  I fell into the dreaded reading slump and I'm finding it hard right now to get back into reading books again.  I mean, the good news is that I'm currently buying a lot of books right now, which was something that I struggled with years ago.  But, I just don't have the time and energy to read as much anymore.  I'm hoping to get out of this slump soon.

So, that's what's been going on with me right now.  Reading slumps, 2020, YouTube, you name it.  I'm hoping that I can start blogging regularly again so that I can show you guys all the cool books that I've read so far!

WISH ME LUCK! always everybody:

The Sunday Post Meme (199)

Hey everybody! I am participating in a book meme called the Sunday Post which is being hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer! The goal of this meme is to share news you have  on various books and things you’ve read or received and also talk about what is coming up for your blog! Book hauls can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books and you can share these finds with other book bloggers!

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been keeping up with the Stacking the Shelves posts. I've been quite busy these last few months, with dealing with my routine sleep doctor check ups.  Thankfully though, my breathing has been improving these last few months ever since I got the CPAC machine. So hopefully, I'll start posting up on my blog regularly again.  Meanwhile, my reading hasn't been in the best of state lately since I rarely read books as much as I used to.  I'm still dealing with the fallout of 2020, so hopefully I'll start getting back to reading soon!

Follow me through Blogger and Bloglovin to reach this goal!

One Word: NOVEMBER!!!


* So, James Wan has made a new horror movie and I must say that I was quite impressed with this movie!  A really creepy film with an intense atmosphere and I especially loved the twists that happened in this film!


* This was one of my most anticipated movies of the year and I must say that I really liked this film!  I loved the visual effects of the desert scenes and the all-star cast was fantastic!  Although, the pacing was a bit slow at times, I still had fun with this movie.


* It was great rewatching this movie again! I remembered loving this movie years ago and after rewatching this movie again, I fell in love with it all over again!  Such a nice and creepy film that you should definitely check out!


How was your October?

*So, here are some good things that happened to me recently!

* I started exercising again!  It's been years since I last exercised regularly and even though it was a bit tough at first, I'm slowly starting to get back into the groove of things regarding exercising! 

* My Fiverr account has been really booming lately!  I've been getting lots of orders to do some book promotions on my Instagram account and I'm really happy about this!  Hope I can get more orders soon!
