Weekly Recap/Stacking the Shelves (29) The Signed Stuff Edition!!




*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Lately I have had very reasonably sized book hauls so my vlogs have been short. This one is going to be a long one. I got a lot of review books this week plus I got all my JLA books signed when I went to the book signing this week. I admit that I had all those books already (Except the finished copy of Deity), but now they are all signed so it's like having new books!! Anyways, I will as always list the books I got below for those of you who don't like to, or can't watch the vlog. Also next weekend my Weekly Recap/Stacking the Shelves post will be going up on Saturday because I have a blog tour stop on Sunday.

Books Mentioned

(all of the above were ones I already had, but had signed this week)
  • Birthdays for the Dead Stuart MacBride
  • Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black
  • Dead and the Buried by Kim Harrington
  • Dualed by Elsie Chapman 
  • Elixir by Jennifer L. Armentrout
  • Hysteria by Meghan Miranda
  • If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch
  • Me, Him, Them, and It by Caela Carter (Did I mention this in the vlog? I don't think so. If I did I totally called it the wrong thing too. I'm a total fail today!)
  • Tons of Swag
  • Amazon Gift Card (forgot to mention it in the vlog. It's from Steph Campbell as part of the stuff I won from The Autumn Review 1 year anniversary giveaway!)

People Mentioned

Big thank you to Jennifer, Leigh, and Kate for such an amazing time at the book signing. Thank you Bloomsbury, HarperCollins, Random House, Scholastic, and St. Martins Press for the awesome review books. Thanks Valerie! Love the bookmarks. And thank you to Autumn and Steph for the gift card. :)This week was an epic week for me!!

    1. I was so excited to get Dualed especially after being denied the first time around. It was so awesome getting to meet JLA and Leigh and get all my books signed.

  2. I'm sooo sad I didn't get to attend the book signing here in RI :( My hubby had to work overtime and of course I had no other babysitter at that last minutes notice. But, I'm so glad to see all the great stuff you received from the signing and that you had a blast. JLA, seems super awesome. As far as the books you got, how awesome that they approved you after your second request!! I'm going to have to try that little trick when I don't get approved. Have a great week!!

    1. Haha! When I first requested Dualed they had taken it down after a few days and I got denied because they said they were at their limit or something. I guess they decided to do more and put it back up. :) I was lucky that my hubs could come home early for me to go to the signing.

  3. Holy shiz Amy! You have an epic week! Dude!! Dance of Shadows! SO PRETTY! I requested it from the UK pub and hope to get it! Or I'm stealing yours! >.< I wish we had signings over here! The posters are so pretty I freaking love those covers and kind of ashamed I haven't read em yet >.<

    If You Find Me looks so creepy! And Hysteria too!

    LOL @ "I think I won this or something" Bahaha. Looks cool at least! >.<

    Great haul, chickie!

    1. All of the review books I got except for Birthdays for the Dead were from NetGalley. I totally said I wouldn't request a million things and then I did lol!! Awwww so cute!! Tell Alek I said hi!!

  4. It's so cool that you got all your books signed! I'm addicted to signed books. I haven't actually read the Covenant series yet! I do own Half-Blood but I haven't gotten around to it yet! I totally need to read it ASAP.

    I'd love to know what you think of Dance of Shadows when you read it! I really wanted to request it at first but then I saw a bunch of mediocre/negative reviews for it and that kind of turned me off. Bummer because the cover is insanely gorgeous! I did read Dualed a few weeks ago and unfortunately I didn't love it. :( Which sucks because I was looking forward to it SO MUCH! I hope you enjoy it more than I did!

  9. Did you get the Dead and the Buried from Netgalley? I still have the request pending. Scholastic hates me for some reason *cries* They don't understand me!! I got a lot of the same books you did and I can't wait to read them, especially Dualed. Happy reading!

    1. Haha!! I was a total fail about staying away from NetGalley. I always tell myself I won't request so many books anymore, then they go and put up like 10 awesome books all at once. Haha!!

  16. *Cries*! Like Kara, my Dead and the Buried request is just moldering like a dead body over at NetGalley. Send some good wishes my way. Scholastic, please approve me!

    But because I love you I'm happy that you got so many books, signed books, great books :)
