Book Blogger Hop #42








Book Blogger Hop is another post I'm going to be trying out and this one has a topic each week, which is something I've been trying to bring to the blog.  I'm really excited about this one because I have a hard time coming up with something fresh to talk about and I'm hoping this helps.

I don't remember the exact book, but I can tell you the one I do remember the most. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton! This is one of my all time favorite books, yep I said one and not the one. I still can't pick just one! LOL

Stanley & Hazel Blog Tour: Author Guest Post and Giveaway



 Today I'm super excited to share with you an awesome new book by Jo Schaffer! So today I have all the book information and a fantastic guest post from this author as well.






Stanley and Hazel by Jo Schaffer
Release Date: May 15, 2018
Publisher: Month9Books


A great depression has gripped the city of St. Louis in 1934. Stanley, an orphaned newsy, lives in a poor part of town hit especially hard by the economic downturn. One night, Stanley runs into Hazel, a restless debutante in waiting who has begun to question her posh lifestyle in the midst of the suffering she sees. She’s out and about without an escort and against her father’s wishes.

When they discover the body of a girl with her head bashed in by a baseball bat, the very different and separate realities of the two teens inform their decision. Together they will figure out what happened to her and bring those responsible to justice.

But getting involved with each other and digging into the secrets behind this murder earns them some powerful enemies, including a secret group seeking to rid society of all they deem “undesirable.” They’ve put into motion “The Winnowing,” a plan seeking to take over the city and enforce their will.

As Stanley and Hazel’s forbidden feelings for one another grow, their investigation turns deadly. Now, it is up to Stanley and his gang of street kids to stop Hazel from becoming the next victim.

 I'm excited to have this author with us today and sharing what's on her bookshelf. If you're anything like me seeing other people's TBR's and shelves are fun. So let's get to it!




My bookshelf, which is actually an antique trunk, contains a variety of fiction and nonfiction. I have a collection of the classics, Hemingway, Henry James, Jane Austen, Tolstoy, the Brontes, F. Scott
Fitzgerald and so on. Among those are also works of Shakespeare and poetry. I have a collection of
antique books that I have discovered in dusty old bookshops during my travels through Europe and the United States. I’ve also been building up a collection of YA literature—contemporary, fantasy, romance and paranormal. Many of them written by wonderful authors I am lucky enough to know personally. I also have many psychology, philosophy, historical and spiritual nonfictions. I have a book for whatever kind of mind journey I am in the mood for.
