Weekly Recap/Stacking the Shelves (26)

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews
Hi everyone!! How was your week? OMG we have been having crazy weather. Cold and rainy almost every day for like weeks, freezing temps at night and now it's like 70 + degrees out! Not that I'm complaining. I wasn't diggin' the 50 degree weather during the day and no sunshine. Anyways, enough of that. I had a great week this week. I know I kinda sucked with reviews this week. I have been really having a hard time getting into books and sticking with them and have been really getting behind. I have been playing catch up so I should have more stuff for you the next few weeks.

That's my week. I feel totally lame that I only had two reviews this week. I really need to get back into things. It's crazy how a few not so great books can really get you behind, but I wasted a few days each on a few (that ended up DNF's) and it just gets me further and further behind. So I would love to know how your week was, what you got, what your plans are for this coming week... leave me a comment with a link and I will stop by. :)

  11. I went through a slump last week where I just couldn't get into anything so I definitely know what you mean there! Gravity looks so good, I can't wait to get my hands on it and I have one story left in Horrid Henry, Sloane is laughing her butt off through them. Hope you enjoy all the new goodies!
