Weekly Recap / Stacking the Shelves (31) My 600th blog post!!

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Hey everyone!! OMG this is my 600th blog post!!! Anyways.... Hope you all had a fabulous week. For all my US readers, hope your Thanksgiving was great! I got quite a few review books and some books that I won and bought. It's a big ebook week for me and just a few physical books, but they are all awesome!! Dude, I swear I wasn't intending to break my book buying ban, but the ebooks I bought were only $.99 a piece. How could I not get them at that price. Now I just need more time in a day to read lol!! Sorry the vlog is so long. I really tried to keep it short. If you want to see my snuggling some candy just skip to the end lol!!!

  1. That was SUCH a fun v-log to watch Amy!! Seriously, that last part was hilarious. I now know the way to your heart- chocolate! xD

    Edelweiss is such a hard name to pronounce, and I think you actually did it correctly! I don't know what's up with that crazy name, they should have just made it simple to say. =P I'm also SUPER excited for Taken!! That's one of my most highly anticipated this year as well. Congrats on winning Easy! I love winning books that I'm super excited for. And that new trend you're going to start with the nail polish? You have proof right in this video that you're the innovator! ;)

    I hope you're willing to share some of those Smarties, Amy! I agree that American chocolate just isn't as good as other countries. Like, my parents got me this candy called Bounty (now, THAT candy is like heaven on Earth!) from another country while they were visiting there, and it tastes SO much better than the US's rendition of it. It's all the additives that they add to the candy here that messes it up. =P

    So I'm sure this comment is long and spazzy enough! Fantastic haul, Amy, and love the video. <3

    1. I love your long comments. I am a big fan of chocolate from other countries. We totally ruin everything here. OMG I so do that with my nails ALL the time. I don't mean to. I paint one hand and wait for it to dry to do the other one and then I get sidetracked and forget lol!

  2. I LOVED Easy! So good! I'm going to have to head to Edelweiss cause they have some great review books up lately. Taken and Mila 2.0! I don't usually go there. Dying to read Charade and Falling as well. Enjoy!

    1. I don't tend to use Edelweiss that often either. I almost never get approved on there except for Harper titles. I was surprised that Simon Pule approved me for Over You, though they denied me for the other two I requested. I can't wait to read Easy!! I am so excited that I got a signed copy!

  3. Bwahahaha candy-gasm!! This was epic! And it sounds like you had a pretty fab week even without the heaven in a shell! I'm SO excited for Mila 2.0! EEK!!!

    Soulmates for everz! I buy all my love with candy!

    1. Lol!!! I love your face!! I did have a super fab week even without the candy, but that just made it super epic! OMG I ate the Mr. Big and that was so good!! I am super excited for Mila 2.0 too!!! Yay!!

  4. Oooh, your HarperCollins Edelweiss haul is awesome. I want to read Mila 2.0 and Taken SO much! Also, Amy Reed's books all look awesome, though I have yet to read one.

    After the second Goddess book, I just can't. I'll definitely be watching for reviews of that one, though, to find out what happens.

    Easy! I've heard so many good things. I want to read it someday!

    Congrats on 600 posts!

    1. I was so excited to get approved for those titles!! I have never read Amy Reed either, but when I saw Over You I was intrigued and had to request it. I am looking forward to reading Easy. Hopefully very soon.

  5. Wow! That's a lot of fab books you got there!
    I'm excited for Taken and Mila 2.0 as well, but I'm too scared to request it!
    Congrats on the 600th post and on winning Easy! I loved Easy so I hope you'll wind up loving it too!
    Great books this week, Amy!
    Happy reading! :)

    1. Hey chick!! Long time no chat! How are you? How's school going? Dude, don't be nervous to request. The worst that happens is they decline you. I get declined all the time. I've only been approved on Edelweiss 4 times and 3 of them were Harper titles.

      Delete
    2. I know, right? I'm doing awesome! :) How are you doing?
      School is going fine! The last couple of weeks were pretty hectic, but I'm officially on 6 weeks of winter break now! So plenty of time to read, blog and visit my favorite blogs! ;)
      I need to get to the review copies I never got around to reading before I start requesting more, but these new titles up on Edelweiss are so tempting!

    3. I have been trying to cut back. It doesn't seem like it though lol!! Most of the review books I have are for 2013 though. Nothing in this post is for before January.

  6. The chalky rolls are Rockets! I can't believe you guys call them Smarties! That's so good that Giselle hooked you up with some real candy. As for the books, Mila 2.0 looks freaking awesome and so does Taken. I bought Easy a while back for my Kindle and have yet to read it, I hear so many really good things about it though. Great haul chickie. Now eat the candy and read the books!

    1. Now that I have books to review all the way into June I think I need to not get anymore and try to fit in some of my great books that I have lol!! I'm so glad I won too. The second I can fit in a book that's not a review or tour book I am so going to devour Easy!!

  11. Over You sounds really interesting. I'm curious to see what you think of it. I won a copy of Taken from Jenni so I can't wait to get that, but I didn't feel right requesting it even though I really wanted to. They DECLINED me for Mila 2.0 *cries* Why??? I am so jealous. Anyway, great haul. Can't wait to see what you think of some of these.

    1. Over You does sound really good. It doesn't come out until June so it will be a long time until I get to that one. Oh how awesome that you won Taken from Jenni. OMG they declined you? That makes no sense!! I don't understand how they work at Edelweiss. I have only ever been approved for 4 titles on there all were Harper except Over You which is Simon Pulse.
