Weekly Recap/Stacking the Shelves (38) Meet Liam the llama!!

 *Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Yay! Time for another recap post. I know I don't usually post on Saturdays, but I have tow posts tomorrow already and I don't want to overcrowd the day. I will be back to my normal Sunday posts next week. I actually have no physical books to show you,but I got quite a few ebooks this week. I bought a few that were hard to resist and got some for review. I also won one too. I won a llama too, and a mug. :) Please excuse my scratchy voice and not so great appearance in my vlog. I have a cold and wasn't even going to film, but I felt like everyone needed to see Liam the llama in all his awesomeness!!
Books Mentioned

  • Mug form Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (Won from twitter giveaway)
  • Liam the Llama (Yes, it's bookish because it was from Epic Reads/C.J. Redwine/Won) 
  • Under the Moon by Natalie J. Damschroder (Author/Won from twitter giveaway)

    I have been tempted to grab The Nightmare Affair but my howl this year is to only request series books I have already started the series for. In other words, as few books as possible. I really want to get mote caught up!
    You got a lot of great books this week!

  15. I hope you start to feel better soon. Sometimes the cold is worse than the flu because the cold sticks around longer =( ugh! Loving that llama, and sweet twitter win! I collect random mugs and that's a pretty sweet win in my books :) Enjoy all that you got this week! Happy reading and thanks for sharing!

  20. Awesome book haul! The Sea of Tranquility is seriously one of the best books ever. Have tissues ready! I can't wait to get started on Dear Cassie and Just Breathe. My hubby is 1/2 through JB and he's loving it! And Skid Out. It is so freaking good! I've been waiting for First Kiss for nearly a year!!! I absolutely cannot wait!!

    Happy Reading!

  21. Feel Better chick!! Love Liam! Love, love the nails--if you do them yourself you should totally do them as a job-you rock at designing nails. Sea Of Tranquility-just requested it myself dying to read it, and Captive In The Dark is on my pile. Enjoy, have a great week!!

  22. Going to start Someone to Love today I think. I hope you love The Sea of Tranquility. It was a gorgeous book. Looking forward to reading Just Breathe too!

  23. I requested The Nightmare Affair, but I sent it Friday night after everyone went home I am sure, so I hope I am approved!! I didn't know that was up on Netgalley. I am crossing my fingers on that one.

    I hope you feel better!

  24. OMG! I had this long comment typed out and then I accidentally clicked X! FUCK!

    Umm ok... Liam is awesome! You don't sound like you feel good, I hope you get better soon!

    Yay for Sea of Tranquility, I can't wait to read that one!

    I totally forgot to include Captive in mine! I will have to throw it in next week.

    I'm so mad. This comment was epic before :(

  25. LOL! Your so funny! Awesome books. Looking forward to your reviews :)

  26. I really liked Pretty Amy and I’m looking forward to Dear Cassie.
    I want to read The Sea of Tranquility so bad!
    CAPTIVE IN THE DARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ah, I freaking LOVE that book! Totally out of my comfort zone and a total mindfuck but I loved it! Can’t wait to see what you think of it :)
    YA Bound Swoons are the best! I have Someone to Love too, just have to read it.

  27. Ahh!!! Hehe Liam the Llama is adorable!!!! :)

    I keep thinking Broken's cover looks so similar to Unspoken.. for the longest time I kept mixing them up with each other!

  28. Aw, I hope you feel better soon Amy! I can't believe how much you accomplished even while you're sick. I feel like such a slacker, hah.

    Liam is pretty darned cute too. :)
