Weekly Recap and Stacking the Shelves (8)

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews
 
Hi everyone!! I hope all of you had a fabulous week!! Happy Fathers day to the dad's out there. (Or the single mommies who have to play both roles.) I really was expecting to have a very slow week, especially with me trying to stick to my book buying ban, but surprisingly I got quite a few books. In my vlog this week I dance so it's a pretty funny video. It's at the end in case you want to see me embarrass myself, but don't want to watch the whole thing.

  3. Nameless Dwarf Omnibus sounded SO funny. I just had to look it up. Ha ha. I got Meant to be too which I can't wait to dive in. I saw Butter but it's story kind of freaked me out so I kept going.

  11. Yay for making a fool of ourselves!! ;) I want to read all the books you got from Netgalley (except Butter, no thanks), but I didn't request ANY of them because I am trying to get through some of my OWN books. So I will wait and see what y'all think. Have a great week!

    1. I know!! I am trying to be good about NetGalley. I have a lot of my own books that I have been dying to read and haven't had any time to. I have been trying to get ahead so I can read some of the books I have been wanting to get to.

  16. THE END OF THAT VLOG KIND OF MADE MY DAY.

    No. Really. I was feeling very moody after a number of things that had happened today, AND THEN I SAW THIS VLOG. That, that was fabulous. :D

    And, for the record, your swimsuit is super cute.

    BUT YOU ALSO GOT SOME REALLY COOL BOOKS. The Immortal Rules is very enjoyable, and quite lovely in person, and Butter and Meant to Be sound kind of really awesome. I hope you like them, and thank you for being fantastic. :D
