Weekly Recap/Stacking the Shelves (10) The one with Cursed and Deity!!!


*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

I am really shocked that it is July!! For real! Doesn't it seem like this month disappeared?! It feels like June just started and now it's over. So last week I didn't do a vlog since I only had a few ebooks to show, but this week was full of epicness so I have a ton to show you this week! I have danced around my house numerous times, and the poor UPS guy I think is a little scared of me now. I just about plowed him over when I ran out of the house the other day. (It's always the same guy, so he is kind of used to my craziness though, so he was probably expecting it.) I will get on with it. I will do a vlog for the few of you that like to watch me in all my awkwardness and I will post all the titles below and link to Goodreads for those of you who just want to know what I got and don't want to listen to me ramble.


Sorry, the video is a bit longer than they normally are. I tried to be quick so I wouldn't bore all of you.Oh, and I am wearing a shirt, it looks like I'm not, but it's just strapless and the camera isn't low enough to see it.

A big huge thank you to Spencer Hill Press, HarperCollins, Disney-Hyperion, Random House, Netgalley, and to all of the above mentioned people. This week has been incredibly amazing and full of win!! I am still practically bouncing around my house with excitement!(And in the video I refer to Alex as he, when in fact Alex is a she, so I apologize for that.)

*Right after I finished uploading my vlog I got another epic package in the mail, but that can go in next weeks vlog, this one was long enough. :)

  7. Tons of great books - This is Not a Test is one I can't wait to read. UPS delivery people prolly love us. First I hear the squeaky truck down the road and then I see them through the window on their way to my door and yell out "thank you" through the open window. I feel like a ninja. :)

    1. I am trying to squeeze in So Close to You since it comes out next week. It was a surprise, so I didn't have it scheduled in, but I still want to try to have it read as close to the publish date as I can since Alison was so nice to send extra books. Jelly Bean Crisis looks so good!! When I did the cover reveal I signed up for the tour right away!!
