Weekly Recap / Stacking the Shelves (32) With Holiday Books

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews
It's December!! The last month of 2012 already! It seems like this year went by way faster than last year did. Of course I probably say that every year. Do the years pass faster with age or something? Well, I know that I am definitely looking forward to next year, especially with all the fantastic books coming out. I didn't get many physical books this week so I was contemplating whether or not to do a vlog, but hubs came home early because we have a B-day party to go to, so I decided not to. I don't like being watched when I record them. I also didn't put all the pics of the books since I was going to do the vlog. Sorry I am a fail this week.

That's my week for you! Sorry I was totally suckish about not putting up pics of the book covers or a vlog. Even though I love talking to myself, I don't really love recording my vlogs when other people are around. Makes me feel weird. I will be better next week.

  1. Hihi. I can't vlog when my husband is home listening/watching either. I thought I was just weird so I'm glad we at least share the weirdness >.< I see some xmas pretties in here! :D and you liked the first Liar Society? I've been wanting to try that one it sounds like a cute guilty pleasure read--something like Gossip Girl or that Spy Academy series. Great haul muffin!

    1. Yeah, I don't like making vlogs when people are watching. (With the exception of the kiddo.) And then we were getting ready to go to a b-day party and I didn't have time to put the pics. That's what I get for waiting until the last minute lol! I did like The Liar Society. I never reviewed it on the blog, but I thought it was fun. I am definitely looking forward to reading the second one.

  3. I loved Dash and Lily's Book of Dares. It was cute and has some great quotes. I can't wait to read The Evolution of Mara Dyer. My friend recently read it and said it was heart wrenching. Enjoy all your books! :)

    1. OMG I think you would love flawed. I know you are really into the darker issue books too. It's fantastic. I would think more people would be requesting Absent, it sounds really good.

  11. Awesome-looking books! I can't wait to start Flawed, your enthusiasm has made me even more eager. I'm really interested in Absent. It reminds me little of Dead Girl's Society. *tbr addition*

  12. Debating on whether or not to get the second Mara Dyer book or not. I really want to know where the story goes, but the first book and I didn't really mesh well together.

    I have not heard great things about Blessed, but I am getting a copy also. So at least it should provide for a fun review if I hate it!
