Weeky Recap and Stacking the Shelves (4)


Hi guys!! Welcome to another weekly recap and Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews. I have a pretty small, but super awesome week as far as books go. I didn't do many reviews  this week either. Unfortunately I have been in a bit of a reading slump lately and even had a DNF book which almost never happens. (It's only my third one ever) I have caught back up since then and am actually starting to get ahead as far as scheduling on my blog. Check my video for the great books, and AWESOMESAUCE shirt that Jen from Jen Ryland/YA Romantics made for me. I totally love it and she just rocks my face off!! Go #TeamAlienHotness #DaemonInvasion If you want to see the awesome shirt, but don't have the patience to watch the video, it's at 4:34 in the video. You should check out the shirt, really!!



Books I got (Clicking on the titles will bring you to the Goodreads page.)

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare (special B&N edition with the letter to Jace attached in the back.)
See You at Harry's by Jo Knowles (signed from the book signing even I went to)
Lessons from a Dead Girl by Jo Knowles (signed from the book signing event)
Pearl by Jo Knowles ( from Jo Knowles as a prize for asking a question at the signing event.)
Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna (from Alison at Harper Collins)
Black Satin by Rae Hachton (from Heather @ Supagurl Books for Blog Tour)

Thanks so much to the hubs for giving me book money and cutting a workday short so I could go meet Jo Knowles. Thank you to Jo Knowles for signing my books, and nook, and also for giving me a copy of Pearl! I am so excited to read all of them. A big thank you to Alison from Harper Collins. And of course Heather,  you know you rock!! Thanks for inviting me to do all of these really awesome blog tours!!

    1. I loved City of Lost Souls. I read it on my nook the day it came out, but I was just waiting for my special edition copy in the mail. I have read Jumping Off Swings but I haven't read Jo's other books. I am excited to get to them.

    1. I was so giddy when CoLS finally came in. I flipped to the back right away and (carefully) took out the letter to read it. Then read it again lol!! In CoFA I read the letter to Clary from Jace like 20 times haha!! Did you get the email from me about Jen sending Decals to any of the team members who want them? I will tweet it at you to make sure. :)

    1. I am really excited to read it. I don't request books for review too often, so when I do my contact is really awesome about sending them. It doesn't come out until the end of August so it will be a little while until I get to it. I really want to read it now though. Maybe I will. :)

    1. Yes!! I pre-ordered it forever ago because I NEEDED the one with the letter in the back!! The other special editions sound good too, but I had to have the letter.

  11. Love the tank!! Haha.. "Team Captain".. so awesome!

    I feel like I need to reread City of Bones and then go through the whole series.. I read that first one so many years ago I don't remember any of it!

    1. I would love to sit and reread the entire series again. It's so good. They are massive books though, so I don't have the time to read 5 of them back to back. I barely have time to sneak in one "me" book. Lol!!
