Weekly Recap/Stacking the Shelves (36) eBooks Galore!!

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews
 
Hey everyone!! Hope you all had a fantastic holiday!! Mine was really great. The kiddo was super excited this year about Christmas since she understands it now. She was so happy to see the presents under the tree in the morning and that Santa ate the cookies she left out for him. We spent a lot of time with family and I was exhausted for days after, but I love this time of year. I am not linking the book titles or my weekly recap stuff because I am trying to be on a blogging break and failing at it. I am just going to put this post together quickly. So really I didn't take much of a blogging break at all, but I just didn't have many reviews go up.
(I apologize for the shakiness and blurring in the vlog. My camera can't keep up with fast movement and I was trying to rush.)
This is me opening my package from Eileen! I promised her I would record it so she could see my reaction.

  4. Wow Amy, you got some ah-mazing books this week! I've heard Dear Teen Me is really great, and I'm super curious to see what those authors went through and what they'd like to tell themselves. It looks like you got a ton of Eileen love, haha. ;) I'm really excited to read For Darkness Shows the Stars, I've wanted that book ever since it came out. That cover is gorgeous! And I'm not surprised Eileen sent you The Madman's Daughter, she has fangirled about that book HARD.

    Fantastic haul Amy! Happy reading and happy new year! <3

    1. Dude, Eileen is awesome!! I totally ruined the surprise because I was wondering whether or not to get The Madman's Daughter from Edelweiss and she told me no and then I thought it was not good or something lol! She had to tell me she sent it to me. I really liked Dear Teen Me. I already read it, I just never got a review of it up because I didn't really know how to review it. I was excited to win it because I was planning on buying it.

    1. Dude!! There were too many awesome ebook deals to pass up, and I love the Entangled romance books!! I can't believe how many I won and was gifted. Most of them are short enough to fit in too. Usually only takes a few hours to read one.

    Hope you had a fab Christmas hun & a very happy 2013 to you!
