Weekly Recap / Stacking the Shelves (52) With Lots of Gifts!!

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Hey everyone!! OMG can you believe it's the last weekend of April already!! The time sure is flying. This is also the last weekend of my blogging break, which I didn't really successfully take anyways lol!! I wasn't even going to do a StS, but since I h ave so many awesome friends who got me b-day gifts, and I got quite a few review books, I figured I should so next week isn't super long!! Also, I got myself an exciting gift too!! A Kindle!! Unfortunately, it had some technical difficulties, so it doesn't work right, but they are sending me a new one and it will be in tomorrow!! Anyways, I will get on with it!! I'm not doing a weekly recap or search terms this week. I am lazy and am trying to enforce my blogging break this weekend haha!!

Big thank you to Spencer Hill Press, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Ink Slinger Promotions, Entangled Publishing and Kendall Grey for the review books!! Super huge thank you to Vi, Giselle, Kara, and Rhiannon for the birthday gifts. I really should have called this the Giselle gives me all the things edition lol!! Anyways, after this weekend my blogging break will be done and I will be back to commenting like normal. I have missed interacting with you all!! Leave me a link to your posts and I will stop by.

    1. Awww thanks. It's going to be good to be back. I really need to manage my time better though. I can't spend like 3 hours a day commenting. I have to maybe visit only my very favorites everyday, and other ones every few days. I just feel bad if I don't comment all the time.

  11. I'm still bummed your Kindle didn't work right. But it's really nice of them to give you a 20 dollar credit.

    That was super awesome of Rhiannon and Giselle to get you those books. And the gift card was a really nice present too!

    I hope you enjoy all your goodies and Rebel Heart!

    1. So far I haven't seen the $20 credit on my account yet, but they did ship out the replacement kindle really quick and I should have it today actually, so I'm not going to complain. Their customer service is really good.

      I am so excited to read all of my new books!! I am always more likely to read books sooner if they are gifts then if I buy them myself too, so I am sure I will get around to them soon. Especially Rebel Heart!! I am dying to read it!

  12. So awesome that you were able to pick up a Kindle. I love mine. I have the Fire(not HD) and love it! I actually had it for over a year, and just recently had a problem with turning it on, the Amazon customer service was fantastic and offered to REPLACE it w/ a new one, after a year! What company does that?? I love Amazon, and it turned out my Kindle only needed a hard restart. Enjoy, the rest of your goodies, and the Kindle.

  15. I keep seeing Famously Engaged everywhere! I want it :)
    Happy Birthday! Isn’t it sad that on your ‘mini break’ you posted more than me? It’s hard to keep up with reading and writing reviews and working full time and kids and family. *sigh*
    I read a sample of Strings and holy shit was it insane! I think I want the whole book!
    Kindles rock! I don’t even like reading print books anymore which is kind of sad…

  16. Awesome books! And you got PODS! Looking forward to that review.
