Week in the Nest - 11.01.15

Week in the Nest is a weekly recap feature to discuss bookish things from the past week or so. I've link to The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits, and Tea, as well as Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews :)

Did you have a spooky Halloween?! Unfortunately, I had to work so I couldn't go with my brother to take my niece out for her first trick-or-treating *cries* I just about died from the cuteness when she tried on her black cat costume. Thank goodness, my parents took lots of photos and videos on their phone for me.

This past week has been a great one for me otherwise. It was my birthday on Wednesday and I was showered with so much love. I'm so thankful to have such wonderful friends both irl and in the blogging/book community. THANK YOU <3

Review - HER STAND-IN BOYFRIEND by Kelly Jamieson 

I have a birthday giveaway for a signed hardcover copy of To All the Boys I've Loved Before
+ some bookish things! It's open internationally, so be sure to enter if you're interested :)

I'm probably going to draw straws to pick which show I should start.
Orphan Black, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D or Scandal?!

I've been picking up more shifts at the restaurant so I haven't been around much but here are two posts that I loved:
Aila at Happy Indulgence discusses how limitless diverse books can be
Aimee at Deadly Darlings shares her secrets to bookstagramming

I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF ADELE'S 'HELLO'. I'm so happy she's back!

Hope you have a great week and happy reading!
