Mirror Mirror is a brand-new feature that replaces my old Stacking The Shelves/Weekly Recap posts. I decided to make my own original feature because it was more than just a STS or recap post.
New on my Shelves!
~ Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep
~ Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty
~ Breaking Glass by Lisa Amowitz

I got Dark Heart of Magic from Netgalley! I’ll be reading that, along with the first book of the series, in October for Halloween-Month! I couldn’t resist getting Flamecaster. I’ve heard so many great things about the Seven Realms series, so I’ll binge read them this year! I got It’s a Wonderful Death for the blog tour. And The Casquette Girls from Netgalley, which I’ll be reading with Rachel & we’ll be interviewing the author! Then I also got Shallow Graves and Harmony House from Edelweiss & plan on reading them for Halloween-month!
In my life & on the blog!

In my life
~ I was bored one day and so after reading Nikki’s Twitter Tips I spent about 2 – 3 hours sorting all the peeps I follow on Twitter in lists (& unfollowing a ton of them, went from 1500 to about 1050) and then I got on Tweetdeck! It’s so awesome! I have a couple of columns. Notifications, PM’s and the home page. Next to that I also have my lists: Favorite Peeps (includes all the peeps I love the most), Bloggy Peeps (All the Bloggers I follow), Awesome Authors (So many authors!), Publishers & Agents (duhh) and Youtube Peeps (People from YT I follow). It’s so easy to go through everything now! Check it out guys! It’s so awesome, I’ve had so many great talks on Twitter this week and I love it!
~ I started revisions on my first draft this month guys. It’s super scary and since my best friend is waaaaay too busy to help me, as are my beta readers, I’m going to need a support group. xD Just people that can keep me sane or someone that can help me out if I’m stuck with something. Like a writing buddy, I guess. If anyone is willing to help, that’d be great! I also asked one of my favorite authors atm for advice and she actually answered!
@Istyriabookblog Take it page by page. And break it down into characters and plot, so you can make changes on individual threads.
