#StackingtheShelves #17 - Week ending 12-12-15! Come see my #books!

            Thanks to our Sponsor, Tynga's Reviews

This is a post where we show you ALL the books we have gotten within the last week! They can be from Publishers, Authors, NetGalley and Edelweiss, all over the place for reviews, books we have gotten from the library, or borrowed from a friend! These can be books we bought for our own library! The BEST part is showing them off! Here are the books I got!

My washing machine broke. REALLY broke. FULL of wet clothes, and no matter what I try to do with the timer, I can't get it to spin out the water. Thank GOSH it is a small load! I still have a pair of sweat pants in there, but I don't know HOW I am going to wring the water out of those clothes? We'll have to go buy a new set tomorrow. The dryer we have has GOT to be 20+ years old! It worked better than my mother's dryer when she gave it to us over 10 years ago! I'm SO bummed out about this! Reason is that is going to wipe me out, if not give me muscle spasms, and we have my husband's work Christmas party tomorrow night. I don't think I'm going to make it there given that I need to go out with my husband to buy the new appliances (this is something you NEVER let your husband do on his own, especially when he is more conservative than you are! LOL!!! I WANT that 'Delicates' setting!!!) By the time I get the soaking wet clothing wrung out, dried, I'm going to be wiped, and I just might miss another year of his party. Oh well, he could help me, too! Heaven knows those are the CLEANEST clothes in the world!!! I'll let you know how it goes.

Don't miss ALL the #GIVEAWAYS to #enter in the left side column!!!

For Review from Story Plant Publishers
Perfectly Broken, a novel, by Robert Burke Warren
Due to be released in Hardcover in March of 2016

Brief Description for now (this may change a little before publication):
His rock star days may be behind him, but stay-at-home dad Grant Kelly's life is getting more interesting by the day. It's the beginning of the post 9/11 era, and he and his wife and four-year-old son have traded a New York City apartment for a Catskills farmhouse, where ghosts from the past, worries for the future, and temptations in the present converge to bring about drastic changes in their marriage, their friendships, and their family. A gorgeously nuanced novel with unforgettable characters, PERFECTLY BROKEN is a story of human frailty, the endurance of the heart, and the power and possibility of forgiveness.
