Stacking the Shelves #4

STSmall_thumb2

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where we share what books we have added to our shelves, virtually or physically!

My most recent downloads. I really need to start purchasing from my Wish List. I’ve got 20-some pages of titles. But downloading freebie ebook deals has been more tempting–and cheaper–lately.

Lauren Rowe’s THE CLUB

Georgette St .Clair’s THE ALPHA MEETS HIS MATCH

Melody Anne’s THE BILLIONAIRE WINS THE GAME

Joya Ryan’s CHASING TEMPTATION

Follow Friday #85

FF_2013Button-300x300

Question this week from Parajunkee and Allison Can Read.

How does this work? You follow a blog, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! With that being said, please review my Follow Policy before making any rash decisions.

This week’s question:Have you come up with any special memes or features on your blog that you’d like people to visit more?

 

Why, yes, thanks for asking. I just recently created Wet Panty Wednesdays. Each month is a different theme that will be posted weekly on–you guessed it–Wednesdays. Us writers are visual creatures and we need the visual…stimulation to inspire us.

Theme suggestions are greatly appreciated as I’m totally winging it here.

This month is tattoos.

Last month was African American Men

Also, the ongoing Feature is the monthly Wet Panty Society,  a monthly homage to beautiful, gorgeous, hunkalicious men. During that month (every Monday), a picture of the chosen inductee will be featured every week with trivia tidbits. Prepare to drool! This month is Jared Leto. You can check out WPS inductees from previous years HERE.

Peace, lurve, and tattoos,

Lastly, no, you do NOT have to answer on Thursdays. Please feel free to answer any time you want, we’re just glad to have you.

I’ve downsized quite a bit since I’ve gotten my Nook. So, for the writing/publishing-related books and other miscellany books that I kept, I’d like bookshelves like these (particularly the middle one seeing as how a bed is where I love to read anyway):

In actuality, these are the bookshelves I have. Courtesy of IKEA:

It’s a yawner compared to the other ones, I know, but a girl–and certified bookworm/book junkie–can dream, right? What about you? Share your links in the Comments section. I’d love to come take a look.

Life as a Blogger #25: Favorite Quotes

lifeasblogger

It’s a weekly feature (on Thursday’s). Each week Jessi over at Novel Heartbeat will choose a subject and talk about that subject in her life. The topics will be non-bookish so that you can get to know her on a more personal level! She definitely encourages everyone to participate, too. She wants this to be meme style with a linky for you to add your posts to. She wants to know more about you guys as well!

So, I recently discovered Erika Napoletano and I fucking love her. In December of last year, she did this 30 days of Hard Truths thing and she had some amazing quotes that just really resonated with me:

The hard truth about beauty is that it never looks like you expected.

Life’s too short to spend with assholes. And it’s way too short to be one of them.

There’s an incredible beauty in words unspoken. [REALLY loved this one.]

Talk shit and tear down, or reach down and lift someone up. Your choice.

Things end. Hold onto the good parts. That’s what they’re for.

When I was actively working to start my nonprofit, I had created a blog to chronicle the process. I haven’t written on there in a very long time, but for months, I had scheduled weekly inspirational quotes that resonated with me. I can’t even begin to list all of them, but here are some:

Everything you want is on the other side of fear – Jack Canfield

I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious – Albert Einstein.

Be persistent and stick to the path in front of you. – Unknown

Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat. – Unknown

If you don’t build your dream someone will hire to help build theirs. – Unknown

Lastly, I’m a huge fan of SARK and her amazing, amazing colorful books. I have several of her books in my library. One book, JUICY PENS, THIRSTY PAPER, is tabbed beyond belief because it’s for writers. On her FB page, shes posts some great feel-good quotes:

Inspiration creates a force field, which touches others and inspires creativity.

There is a small, sure voice inside of you. It knows what to do.

Our creative souls need nurturing and understanding.

Only you can reveal your truth.

You are larger than your fears.

What about you? What are your favorite quotes?

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Wet Panty Society – A Little Trivia About: Jared Leto

He has English, Cajun (French), as well as Irish, German, Scottish, and distant Spanish, ancestry. “Leto” was the surname of Jared’s stepfather/adoptive father. He was also chosen as People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People.

And I would have to agree with that.

Ahem.

Yowza.
