*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Hi everyone! Another week, another pretty big book haul. I got a few more gifts in the mail (Thanks Giselle, love ya bunches!!), I bought a few books, and I got a few for review. I wasn't expecting most of the stuff I got this week so it's all pretty exciting. Oh, and I got a pretty new banner for my Weekly Recap (and WoW) thanks to Giselle also. She is pretty much the most awesome chick ever!!

    1. I'm about half done with The Program now, and I am really enjoying the story. I'm not a huge fan of the narrator of it, but it's not ruining it for me. I can't wait to read What Happens Next. I have tons of review books I need to get to first though.

  2. All Our Pretty Songs sounds so good! I want to read Faking It so bad *jealous* I thought about requesting it, but I've got enough review books and I'm really busy right now so I don't want to overbare myself with reading right now. No help with that 5th book in the series. I just ordered myself the first two books combined in one and I hope I'll like them. I hope. That Freak Boy book is quite popular lately. It's gorgeous too! I know Jenni loved What Happens Next. I think I have an ecopy and I really want to read it. WHAT? TFiOS is silver? O_O I haven't read it either, no worries:-) Everyone's pressuring me though. It's bound to be awesome - or so they say. I hope I get to it soon:-) LOVE YOUR HAUL, AMY! Have a great Sunday and happy reading:-)

    Btw, I like your nail polish:-)

    1. I couldn't resist Faking It. I have way too many review books too, but I figured it would be a quick read, and I had to have it! Freakboy sounds really interesting, I'm just worried since it's written in verse. I have only "read' like two or three books written that way, and I listened to the audio of them. Yes!! B&N has the exclusive silver edition of TFiOS. That's why I bought it there instead of Amazon, I think the cover is prettier. Lol!!

      And thanks! I thought yellow was a good warm weather color. ;)

  5. AMAZINGGG haul Amy! The Program looks so insanely good and I'm so jealous because it's been popping up everywhere this week! That was really nice of Giselle to give you all those amazing books but then again she's awesome so... ;)

    I've heard nothing but fantastic things about Eleanor & Park and The Fault in Our Stars so I hope you do too! (I didn't really like them because on one occasion I just didn't like it [Eleanor & Park] and on the other occasion I got the ending spoiled for me so it wasn't as dramatic)

    I feel like a horrible commenter I haven't been commenting on your blog as often and I can't even watch your vlog because I'm at my grandparents' house using their computer and I'm not allowed to mess it up, so I'm really paranoid of watching videos >.< (I promise I will watch it later! Cross my heart and hope to die!)

    YAY for Faking It! You were telling me how much you wanted to read it :) It's amazing so I hope you seriously love it whee!!

    Happy reading! SORRY FOR NEGLECTING YOUR AMAZING BLOG D: *begs for forgiveness with books*

    1. No worried chick!! I have been a super horrible commenter lately too. I haven't been around as much. I have been bringing the kiddo to the park or visiting family and stuff. That was so funny when I saw Faking It on yours and checked. I had totally been approved for it for days and just didn't know.

    2. PS—YOU LOOK SO PRETTY AND TAN!!

      Also, I have no idea either what you're supposed to do when you get a sequel I got one from Simon and Schuster and I just put it on my shelf and I'm slowly waiting for someone to want it or else I'm probably going to be doing a giveaway for it soon :) I've seen Freakboy around and DUDEEEE verse? That will definitely be a really iffy thing but wheee! Hope you love it, it sounds awesome :)

      YAY for extra Wake and Lullaby too!! I've seen soo many extra copies of that lying around :)

      Delete
    3. Awww you are so sweet!! If if was just a sequel, like the second, or maybe even the third, I would definitely try to get to it. It's the fifth though. That's like almost impossible for me to try to fit in. Lol! I know that some people love verse novels, but I've just never read one. I have listened to a few though, but it's different when someone is reading to you.

  6. Eleanor & Park sounds like a cute book. I love the simplicity of the cover as well. Happy reading! :)

  8. Once again, Giselle was awesome to you this week. I want to read that series so badly. I have book one but I just don't have time. I've heard it's fabulous though. Enjoy!

    Oh, and I hated Wake, so good luck with that. ;)

    1. Giselle totally is awesome!! I have been wanting to read Feed forever! I liked Wake okay, I have already reviewed that one. I also reviewed the novella. I still have to read and review Lullaby. I think I will do a giveaway for Chosen at Nightfall or something since it's the 5th book and I haven't read any of them. I just don't have time to read 4 books so I can review that one.

  9. What a great haul Amy! What Happens Next is one of my favorite books ever. Enjoy!

  10. Not only are you tan, but you got that burn too. I will always be pasty white. There's nothing for it.

    Faking It! I want it to be as good as Losing It. I really do.

    Oh, your television is on. I thought your house was haunted for a moment, because I kept seeing things moving behind you. Haha.

    I got a fifth book once. It was MASSIVE and in a huge romance series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I gave it away. I'll try to catch up if I'm interested and it's up to book three. Past that, just no.

    I got Freakboy too. So excited about what a quick read it will be.

    Also, Newsflesh trilogy is the best ever. BEST. EVER.

    1. I am hoping Faking It is as good as Losing It too!! So far Cade is really mopey and "ohh, my life just sucks" but hopefully things will change. Max seems like a great character, but since I just started I haven't gotten to know her much yet.

      Haha!! Haunted house!!

      It's not that I don't want to read the Shadow Falls series, but dude, 5th book!! I could never catch up to that for like months.

      Freakboy sounds so good!! It will be the first book I have every actually read in verse. I have only ever listened to verse novels.

      Newsflesh series for the win!! I am totally going to try to fit it in a few chapters at a time!!

  11. You got so many awesome books! Yay! Look at all the pretty finished copies! I need to start taking on less review books too! I have crazy amounts of books to get to.

  12. I really liked What I Didn't Say. Cute and inspiring story. Faking It! Jealous. Can't wait for that one. The Program has been getting great reviews so I got it even though I thought I would skip it. All the bloggers end up making me want to read every book! Same with Eleanor & Park. I'm not huge on contemp but all the fab reviews have made me decide to give it a try. I've been wanting to read the Newsflesh Trilogy forever. Love zombies. Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!

  14. The solo painted hand strikes again eh?! LOL that made me giggle :) And lucky for you for sporting a rocking tan already! Mine staring too but I'm paler and freckled so it usually takes some work hahaha

    Seriously EPIC haul girl! Giselle really does spoil us doesn't she?! :D Heard great things about the Newsflesh series and What Happens Next!! I actually have NOT read The Fault in our Stars yet either...but it IS on my reading list. Same goes for The Program & Eleanor and Park!

    Congrats on ALL the sweet stuff here & enjoy them ALL ♥
