Behind the Screen (3)

Happy Thursday, everybody!

Time to write about what has going on Behind the Screen.

First, I thought that due to the fact I am having vacation, I will no have much to write, but it turned out differently.


My e-book shelf has increased with 9 books! 6 of them I got from the author Kiki Howell and 3 of them from Indie Snippets from different authors. I won these during the Blog Fest where lots of blogs participated. The books will be listed down below under Giveaways.
Hopefully I will be one of the participating blogs next year.

Besides that I have received several e-books for reviewing from NetGalley.
Firstly, I got Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa. Book is published by HarlequinTeen. I was so glad when I got the confirmation email from NetGalley.

Secondly, I got Forbidden by Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee. Book is published by Hachette Book Group.

Last, but not least I got e-book of The Vampire's Curse by SJ Wright for the book tour.

So, lots of reading waiting.

While blogging:

I updated the page for book and blog tours, because there are quite many of them in August. At the moment I am participating in the Overprotected by Jennifer Laurens Blog tour, you can find the post here:

I added the Vampire's Curse blog tour, which will take place 12 - 29 August and the stop in my blog will be on the 19th of August.

What I still need to do, is to add all the banners of the book and blog tours on the page.

Generally, I have enjoyed my vacation, but I have still been able to write some posts.


The giveaways I had running are both ending today, so I will need to write a winner posts later today.
Besides that, you will find a possibility to win a book in case you are signing for Shelf Awareness. You will find it on the left column.

At the same time, I have been actively participating in different blog hops and giveaways and as mentioned above I won 6 books from Kiki Howell through the Blog Fest giveaway hop. the books which I won are:

A Strange Freedom
Mystic Stones
Torn Asunder
A Modern Day Witch Hunt
Irreconcilable Differences

The books I won from The Indie Snippets with the same Blog Fest giveaway hop:

Backlash by Nancy Fulda
An Epitaph for Coyote by Bryan R. Dennis
Blood of Requiem by Daniel Arenson

There is actually a wonderful author blog hop going on and I encourage you all to participate, authors have wonderful giveaways of their own books! You can start the hop for example on this blog:
