Weekly Recap / Stacking the Shelves (39) HarperTeen Epicness!!


*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Hello lovelies!! Hope you all had a fabulous week. I am finally starting to feel better from what I thought was a cold, but turns out it was in fact allergies. Then something else happened and it really bummed me out and made me angry which I talk about a little bit in my vlog, but I don't go into it too much. But I was cheered up by an awesome package that came in the mail so overall my week was pretty good. We all have bad weeks though so I will stop the babble and get on with the recap!

Weekly Recap
Search Terms
  • falling for her fiance by cindi madsen - I loved this book!
  • by aaron patterson and chris white - Well it seems part of the search term is missing, but I did read Airel by them and it was great!
  • gravity book west - Gravity was a super cool book. It is by Melissa West.
  • neverfall brodi ashton parental book review - I wouldn't say my review is parental besides the fact I am indeed a parent. I guess I should expect these types of searches due to the name of my blog.
  • summerset abbey tj brown book - This was fantastic! I can't wait for the next one. Who would have thought I would love historical novels so much.
  • tempting the bodyguard gamble brothers  - I can't wait for this book!! I need to know Chandlers story!
  • tracy garvis graves - She is awesome! On the Island is one of my favorite books and she is a very nice person! 

That's my week!! That package from HarperTeen sure made my kinda crappy week a lot better. I would love to know what bookish things you received. Leave me a link and I will check it out as soon as I can.

  2. I've been curious about Wasteland, it sounds like something I might enjoy as I tend to like dystopians. Hope you enjoy!

    1. Thanks Jen. I was so excited when the package came. I had requested Boundless and Asunder forever ago and just assumed I wouldn't get them so I couldn't believe it when I opened up the envelope!

    1. I literally almost cried when I saw Boundless in the package! I dropped everything to read it right away.

  5. Ooh, you got Boundless? That's like one of the impossible-to-get ARCs, nice! I still need to read Hallowed, and I'm thinking of dropping Pulse right now and starting it so I can read Boundless tomorrow before the spoilers concerning who Clara chooses inevitably start pouring into my feed. Great haul, hon!

    1. I am about half done with it now and so far the story is pretty good. There is a bunch of little annoyances, like the reader isn't one of my favorites, and certain phrases that keep being used, but it's entertaining me.

  8. That Blood Fugue cover has haunted me for a while now over at The Aussie Zombie and now it will haunt me here damnit! Boundless! I am so jealous. I will be waiting outside the book store on Tuesday morning for that one and Everbound. Great haul chick!

  12. AHH. Amy I'm SO sorry that you were affected by the plagiarism thing! But legit, you TOTALLY DESERVE THAT PACKAGE. THE FATES WANTED YOU TO FEEL BETTER! :D BECAUSE YOU DON'T DESERVE TO BE SAD.

    Anyway, Boundless AHHH! I would've cried with you too! :D Now I feel so bad for tearing Boundless away from you when you could have it for yourself since you loved it so much >.< MERP.

    Anyway, I'm so glad you got an amazing haul! :D ANd yay for getting an audiobook for review!

  13. You had a wicked awesome book hauling week! Can't wait to see what you think of the Crash audiobook. I love Lisa McMann books.

    1. Yay!! Not that you didn't already know what I got lol!! I am half done with Crash already and it's pretty good, but I am picky when it comes to audiobooks and I have a lot of little annoyances. Unfortunately, I have only read one of Lisa McMann's books and I didn't care for it much, but this one is better for me so far.

  14. Sorry you got plagiarized, darling. It's awful and I was sad to see so many of you affected. And I hate that they weren't apologetic about it either.

    I'm not that excited about Boundless because I still need to read Unearthly, but Wasteland looks really good. I hope it doesn't suck! I'm worried because that blurb is mildly offensive. We'll see.

    Anyway, great haul!

    1. Wasteland was totally unexpected. It's on my wishlist, but I didn't actually request that one so I was surprised when that was in the package. I am hoping that I like it. It sounds good.

  15. Awesome books! I'm so excited to read Boundless!

  16. Oh my, I'm so sorry you got plagiarized Amy :( That really does suck but I'm glad you got an awesome haul this week to help keep your mind off things! I REALLY want to get into both the Unearthly Series & the Newsoul Series!! At least I have a copy of Unearthly...I still don't have a copy of Incarnate  >.< Enjoy all your goodies babe ♥
