Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. This meme gives bloggers a chance to share with readers what we bought, borrowed, swapped, won or received for review each week. I also decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

life outside the ‘net
This week things have been difficult for me. I’ve been out on medical leave due to stress and anxiety. Instead of working, I’ve been trying to relax. Mostly I’ve been sleeping, catching up on tv, and of course reading. The bright side? I missed all of the “fun” Halloween activities at school. Instead, I caught up on the horror movies being played on cable. Is it just me, or had television taken a break on horror the past few years? I usually have to watch Netflix, or my DVDs to get my Halloween fix, but everywhere you look this year there were great horror films to take my pick from. Some where great as always (Misery), while others didn’t live up to my childhood memories (Puppetmaster).
On Saturday, I decided to get out of the house and treat myself to a movie. I finally got the opportunity to see Crimson Peak, and I loved it! I’m a Guillermo del Toro fan, so I thoroughly enjoyed the aesthetic of the film. Plus, it had a really great story. Bravo! More than that, it made me miss The Strain something terrible. If you haven’t seen it yet, then check it out. I give it 2 thumbs up!
