Weekly Recap / Stacking the Shelves (42) Signed Stuff!!

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Hey guys! How's everyone doing this weekend? I am totally snowed in where I am. We just got hammered with Winter Storm Nemo and have almost 3 feet of snow. So I am actually writing this post in my pajamas and really tired from hours of trying to dig myself out. Lol!! I have some really exciting things to show you since I went to the Dark Days event on Thursday! Look for my recap next week. Also, Giselle @ Xpresso Reads and I are organizing a Boston area Book Blogger Meetup in August. (She is totally way better at planning than me though. I have been a suckish organizer/promoter so far) So check out the facebook page for details! If you click the button below it will bring you there too.

 Thank you to Giselle, Scholastic, Heather, and Emily for the great books! Lauren it was a blast going to the Dark Days event together, even if I did get a bit scary with my road rage and frustration at Cambridge lol!! Next time, if there's a signing there we will take the T in.

    1. Yeah, we definitely got a lot of snow. We get plenty of snow snorms during the winter, but not usually like that. It was all really quick too. When I went to bed at about 11pm there was maybe and inch and at 6am we had like 3 feet. I hope that you love Boundless. It was so emotional, but great.

    1. Oh no!! You lost power? I know that over 500,000 people were without power in New England at one point. I am so glad that we didn't lose it. The snow we got wasn't too heavy. There is a lot of it, but it's pretty fluffy.

    1. When it's over a foot of snow it's just so hard to deal with because you have nowhere to put it. A lot of people got Unravel Me this week!!

  12. Oh my!!! As a mom of two who lives in Florida, we think this looks like soooo much F!U!N!!! What I wouldn't give for a snow day to catch up on some good books. Haven't had much time for that lately, but I just picked up Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans and I can't wait to read it. It comes highly recommended!

  20. Eee, Snarkles in the wild! Can't wait for your recap post.

    I hope you're staying warm and safe with all your snow. Sounds like the perfect excuse to cozy up with a book if you ask me. ;) Love the snow photos!

  21. Oh my lands- that is some crazy snow! I can't decide whether it looks like fun or a headache with all the digging. Both probably. PJ breaks area always nice.

  22. Holy shit @ your snowfall! Well at least it looks like you will be able to get some good reading time in. The Collector sounds awesome! Not a huge fan of the cover but the book itself sounds awesome so I am interested to hear your thoughts!

    Lots of hot cocoa and snowman building!

  23. You guys, I am SO jealous of your blogger meet up in Boston. I wish that were near me. BUT BEA is going to be my only blogger meetup. Well, that and whatever signings and people come to Atlanta.

    I've NEVER seen that much snow in real life. Yum, I want some hot cocoa and snowman building, though not necessarily in that order. Kara has good ideas.
