I was inspired by a post I read by Kelsye at Wise Ink Blog Ultimate Bloggers Guide to Growing Your Readership. Her list of ways to increase traffic got me thinking about how little I actually do to set schedules and really update readers on what to expect from my little slice of the inter-webs. In theory, this feature should help keep me on track and active. My long term goal is to turn this post into a weekly newsletter of sorts outlining where we are and where we are going.
I received a few really great titles in the mail this last week. All of them really amazing surprises! Thank you to Harper Collins, Candlewick Press and Penguin Random House for awesome hard copies of books! I know it costs quite a bit to send books to Canada so I certainly feel blessed. (Check out the books below!)
I received an amazing gift from my Ninja Book Swap partner! Two amazing classics, which are better in paperback, sweets, a tea infuser, bookmark and a makeup case! I’ve always wanted to go to Europe so this gift was extra special. It also puts any gift Ive ever given to shame! 😉 Thank you to Camilla at Twenty Years From Now! I love it.
Finally, I completed my Book Blogger Creativity Project post “Seasons Readings: Fall“. I listed a few horror titles in celebration of the season that brings us Halloween! I suggest checking out all of Team Pink since they had some really amazing book recommendations! My TBR list has grown this last month just because of these wonderful ladies: Brittany of Book Addicts Guide, Erica from Escape Under the Cover, Kailia from Life According to a Bibliophile; Kj from Birds that Love Words, Let from Other Side of Ordinary, Maggie from The Novel Orange, Nori from Read Write Love, Orchid from The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia and Veronica from Grounded Wanderlust.
The Book Blogger Creativity Project was a wonderful experience and I met plenty of new friends. I heard some groups struggled but our group did an exceptional job in collaborating on this project. I found everyone so helpful and supportive which is something I love about the blogging community. I feel grateful that I was able to work with such talented and down to Earth bloggers. Really, my team mates are what really made BBCreativityProject worth the while. I really hope we all keep in contact because they are really amazing people. Thank you guys for making this year’s event amazing!

I signed up for the Fall Reading Challenge 2015 at BookSpark and Big Law was part of this event. I’m really excited to read a humorous take on corporate law!
Mackenzie Corbett has always dreamed of living in New York City. Now, almost two years into her job as an associate at a premier Manhattan law firm, she’s living her fantasy–big salary, high profile deals, cute boyfriend, designer bag on her arm. The giant bags under her eyes from lack of sleep don’t fit into the fantasy, though. To make matters worse, she’s being tormented by a bitter, bitchy senior associate, her cute boyfriend is annoyed she never has time for him, and now she’s stuck on the deal from hell with a partner whose biggest claim to fame is throwing a stapler at a cleaning lady because she touched his ficus plant.
With the opportunity to secure a prestigious secondment on line, the overachiever in her is determined to endure whatever it takes to close the biggest deal in the firm’s history. But when Mackenzie finds herself the focus of a devastating investigation her dream job begins spiraling into a nightmare.
