#StackingtheShelves #50 (Wow! 50!!) Blog Updates and week's end, 9-10-16!

Thanks to our Sponsor, Tynga's Reviews!

First, let's find out HOW Stacking the Shelves works! 

Hello everyone! It's that time of week again, that time to do an awesome "SHOW AND TELL" of the books I have been given, from authors, from publishers, I bought, borrowed, or received somehow, the library, a yard sale, or some way this past week! I LOVE showing books off like this! This is one of MY favorite posts to write!!
I also use THIS POST EACH WEEK to do somewhat of a wrap-up AND to post my NEW REVIEWS, NEW GIVEAWAYS, and whatever else I should bring to your attention!
After you are done reading HERE, click on the Sponsor's name up above and see THEIR post for Stacking the Shelves, too! They have a link-up with OVER 100-200 other blogs that also participate!
I'm also finding OTHER PLACES TO LINK UP TO AS WELL! I'm finding these places from other blogs, and they are GREAT ideas! The following NEW one is Talk of the Town where we can add ALL THINGS BOOKISH! Check it out! I still plan on joining in on other link-ups, too, I just haven't had the chance to do it all yet! I'll get there!!
I will also be linking this post AND my reviews to Saturday Situation as well from now on, too! That is a place to link ALL THINGS BOOKISH! I'm anxious to start posting there!! Check it out, too!

From muscle spasms to the FLU!!! NO KIDDING!!! Last Saturday after I wrote this post, I started getting dizzy. I thought it was just my sinuses. NOPE! I have not had a cold or the flu in OVER 15 YEARS!!! YES! THAT LONG!!! I got hit GOOD! I was literally delirious with fever! I could not speak in a complete sentence! Gibberish came out! I was SO dizzy! I couldn't even walk I was so dizzy! I was practically crawling on the floor because EVERYTHING was spinning out of control. It was the typical flu. Fever, chills, and I SO want to throw up!!! You ALL know how it goes! The STRANGE thing about it?? I have not been around anyone!!! So perhaps it was food poisoning? I don't know? I DID go into the Dr's office and got checked out. I'm going to live! YES! Seriously, I was concerned because of the dizziness and was worried if it was a bladder or even kidney infection - NOPE! So that blew the week for me. 
Next - MALWARE!!!! May I suggest if you do NOT have MALWARE PROTECTION for your computer, PLEASE GET IT!!! I have had my computer worked on three times over the last week and finally, today was the THIRD TIME! It happens when you ACCIDENTALLY click on an AD! You don't even mean to click on the ad, just your cursor happened to be on top of one, and when you moved your mouse, you pressed to hard on it! Oh, NO!!! Yep! That is how you got it! There is this file out there called the following: - this one open a full tab that turns into a full page and it COMPLETELY FREEZES your browser! There is NO X'ing it out of the page it opened, and the ONLY thing it allows you to do is to click "OK!" because you have WON something!!! PLEASE DO NOT CLICK ON THAT "OK"!!! PLEASE take your computer IN to be repaired IMMEDIATELY!!! THIS IS URGENT!!! Do NOT shut your computer down, just close the lid, and take it to the shop ASAP! It CAN BE SAVED, but you need the experts to do it! Today took the longest of all to have it cleaned out of my computer. I DO have Malwarebytes to help prevent malware programs from killing my computer, and it IS WORKING!!! It was NOT working earlier this week and I had no idea! Who's to say another Malware program didn't freeze the program? My mouse has been being held hostage lately to where I cannot move it, so that is ANOTHER Malware program at work. All I can say is it is BAD out there right now! 
I happen to have the Geek Squad who I pay a yearly fee to to help cover EVERYTHING but PARTS for my computer! It is SO WORTH IT for the peace of mind KNOWING you will not LOSE your computer to these AWFUL PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN TO INFECT YOUR COMPUTER! And WORST OF ALL, through ADS!!! That just ticks me off! Legitimate companies who pay BIG dollars to advertise out there CANNOT rely on people to click on their ads because we are too afraid to! We don't know what is malware and what is a good advertisement! This has finally gone too far, in my opinion!
So PLEASE make sure you have the software to protect your investment, the coverage to REPAIR your investment, and to have the peace of mind KNOWING they CAN SAVE IT!!! BEST of luck to you all with this!!

Okay! Nothing much  regarding reviews has changed for me for this upcoming week. I plan to stay on target and do what I was going to do last week for this week.  I don't expect ANYTHING to get in my way now. That's a guarantee!! I mean what else could? I better NOT say that! LOL! Seriously, I WILL recap what I will be doing here, and you CAN count on it! PROMISE!!!

There is the FAREWELL TO SUMMER $250 #CASH #GIVEAWAY from NOW to 9-22 TO ENTER!!! You can click HERE! TO ENTER!!! OR click on the photo in the LEFT SIDE COLUMN AT THE TOP!! Good luck!!!!

BOOKS I RECEIVED THIS WEEK!!! The BEST part!!! I'll share them with you NOW!!!

Stalked (The Profiler #4) by Elizabeth Heiter 
RELEASE DATE: 12-27-16!  With my LOVE of thrillers, this book will SURELY do it for me!! This is a Mass Media Paperback I received!

Mending Fences by Sherryl Woods - released in 2007 but a classic!!! The publisher sent this one to me, and I can't WAIT to read this one!! It sounds SO good! 

Devastating secrets tear two families apart in this acclaimed novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods!

For ten years Emily Dobbs and Marcie Carter have been the closest of friends. They've raised their kids together, shared joy and heartache, exchanged neighborhood gossip over tea. But when Marcie's son, now a college freshman sports star, is arrested for date rape, the bond between the families could be shattered forever.

As the Carters try to deal with the unthinkable, Emily discovers her daughter has been hiding a terrible secret…a secret that threatens the futures of both families. Recently divorced, Emily struggles to keep it all together—to support her terrified daughter, to maintain her friendship with Evan's mother and to have faith in the detective who could change all of their lives.

When things seem darkest, both she and Marcie discover that sometimes the first step toward a better future is mending fences with the past.

  1. Malware is a nasty little thing. I hate it. I let Apple teach me how to install it. Apple has very good tech support. I hope you love all of your new books.

    Grace @ Books of Love

  2. Sorry to hear about the flu Laurie :( and of course you computer. I'm fortunate in that OH works as IT security for a bank so whenever I've had problems in the past, he's been able to sort it out. I've unintentionally clicked on something before too ... not good!

    Love the sound of Mending Fences. Look forward to reading your thoughts.

    Take care!

  3. So many amazing books! ­čśŹ
