In Manhattan: Stacking The Shelves (16)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. This is a weekly recap and what I got and other bookish news.

As you can see that this is an extra special week, because the wonderful Giselle from Xpresso Reads basically redesigned my blog. I just want to start out by giving her a huge Thank You, because this really is great! It started with some meme banners (like the one you see above) and a button and a signature, and from there it just exploded to something really cool.

It use to look like this:

And now it's this beauty:
I did just turn a year old two months back, while I would have wish I had thought about redesigning then, I'm really glad that I did it early on now. With a new year comes new things. Though, I still have a lot to work on, and not just with my blog design but being a better blogger in general, I think things are looking up.

And I OFFICIALLY HAVE A BUTTON! Look over at the side bar. I'm still trying to figure out how to collect all the buttons and put them on my own blog, but let me know if you put me on so I can add you as well.

The reviews this week are a little better because things were not as hectic as before, so hopefully now that school has started I can get into a new rhythm. It's still chaotic, but not as much.

Nice haul this week, I really need to get into the Iron series by Kagawa. I had read The Immortal Rules and wasn't a big fan but everyone raves about this series.
