Weekly Recap/Stacking the Shelves (9)

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Hey everyone!! Welcome to another Stacking the Shelves and Weekly Recap. Man, I feel like this month has like disappeared. It's crazy how fast it is going by. This week I got no physical books so I am not doing a vlog. (I know you will all totally miss my face, so sorry. I promise a vlog next weekend though.) I actually only got a few ebooks, so it was a nice small week. I am doing pretty good at sticking to my book buying ban. So onto the books. 





Books  

I bought:
I know, I know, I bought 2 books, but they were like $0.99 so really, it doesn't count. lol!!

Won:
For review:

Thank you so much to Ashley, Bonnie and Courtney!! You girls totally rock!! Much love to all of you.

Weekly Recap

This week on the blog I had four reviews. The Mayfair Moon by J.A. Remerski, Tempting the Best Man by J. Lynn, On the Day I Died by Candace Fleming, and The Last Bastion of the Living by Rhiannon Frater. (Which is also a tour stop and has a great guest post from Rhiannon) I had a cover reveal for Triangles by Kimberly Ann Miller and a few other great covers from this week. You can read the first chapter of Dante's Girl by Courtney Cole. I also had a few weekly memes. Top Ten Tuesday and Waiting on Wednesday.

That was my week. I would love to see your recap and/or what books you got. Leave me a link to your post and I will stop by as soon as I can.

  1. I had a slow week too, also not complaining because I have so many books already that I should have read. Ha ha. I love HCA's fairytales. One day I will own this http://bit.ly/Ntm9RH along with the others like Chronicles of Narnia, etc. I need those pretty books on my shelf! :)

  7. I like your 99 cents rule. And besides, fairy tales are classics, so I say you are allowed to buy those.

  11. I totally agree about time flying by- I can't believe June is almost closer! I'm sad, because that means it's one more month closer to the start of school. =( Anyways, I'm totally jealous that you got Dante's Girl! After reading that excerpt on your blog yesterday, I'm totally dying to read that!!

    Enjoy those books, and happy reading! <3
