Weekly Recap 4/30/12 - 5/5/12

Hi guys!! Welcome to another weekly recap here at Book Loving Mom. Tynga's Reviews has started a meme called Stacking the Shelves which I am going to start doing. So I will credit the book show and tell to that. I will start doing the meme officially next week along with my recap. I will eventually make a cute little button to use for this weekly post, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. This week I did it a little different. I did a video on the books I got and then I will just have links to my weekly posts below the video. (That is if I can get my video to work. I seem to be having some technical difficulties with YouTube right now.)


(I hate it when the video is frozen on a really bad screen shot lol, and due to the angle I think, it kept looking like I was making some really funny faces during the video. Also got this really weird lip gloss called lip venom and it makes your lips all tingly and is supposed to make them fuller looking. It felt really odd and I don't think I like it. )

  1. I love seeing your beautiful daughter :)

    I ordered Pretty When She Dies too. I think there are zombies involved, but since it was free, I thought I'd see how scary it is. I'll read it with one eye open....

    1. Ughhh I have not done great with reading lately. I keep wanting to read me books, when I should be getting review books out of the way first. Endure was very good. I loved the Need series. I am going to start doing Tynga Review's Stacking The Shelves meme starting next week.
