Weekly Recap / Stacking the Shelves (55)

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Another big week for me. The weather is getting nicer too which means more outdoor time. (Which means more reading time because the computer doesn't distract me. My phone is acting up so it shuts down when I try to tweet lol) I love summer because it means more family time, more outdoors, and warm weather. I have lived in Massachusetts my whole life, but still hate the cold.


OMG I keep getting all bug eyed in my vlog. I don't know why I kept doing it, but it looks weird. My eyes are itching and burning from allergies so I keep feeling like they are droopy. Maybe I was trying to open them up better lol!! And I know, I'm totally lazy, but I didn't link any of the books. I also didn't include my weekly recap, but I did put my search terms. I hurt my foot, and then got super lazy and didn't get on the computer until late and then I just wanted to throw it together quick. I am such a fail this weekend.

    1. Ten Tiny Breaths is really good and I can't wait to listen to Wallbanger. I anticipate a lot of dumb grins and laughing out loud.

  2. Wait- YOU RECEIVED AN AUDIO OF THE LIGHTNING THIEF? You better have listened to it, Rick Riordan is the best. (Well in my opinion) I can't watch your vlog as I'm currently racing time but I'll see it sometime soon! We're all lazy aren't we? I could barely even bother doing my Midnight Madness- ended up doing it and it looks awful. :/

    Anywho, I hope enjoy Charm & Strange, it looks creepy but sounds awesome!

    1. Asylum does look good. I am excited for it!!

  7. Eee, I hope you enjoy Charm & Strange, Amy! I'll also definitely be stalking your updates for Asylum. It looks really interesting and awesome and creepy, but I think it's one of those books where the story is told through pictures, like in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, so reading that on my Kindle might not be the best way.

    1. I am so excited that I won Charm & Strange!! I can't wait to have time to get to it. Since it's short I can fit it in easier though. ;) Asylum does sound creepy. Even though Miss Peregrine's was told through pictures, I actually listened to the audio and looked at the pics after, and it didn't affect my enjoyment. I'm hoping it won't matter too much with Asylum.

  9. I loved Wallbanger and almost got the audio the other day. I bet you will constantly crack up. I hope the narrator is great. I can't believe I hadn't heard of This Song Will Save Your Life until today! Enjoy the books!

    1. I'm sure that if I am out somewhere and listening to it, (like walking the dog or something) I am going to look like an idiot laughing at myself haha!! This Song Will Save Your Life sounds so good. I am excited for it.

    1. This is the first time I have beta read before! I really liked doing it though. It was much different than just reading to review since I had to pay very close attention to the story flow and any inconsistencies. (which Rhiannon is fabulous so it was pretty much perfect!)

  11. Ooh wow, so many review books this week! :) I had no idea Inbetween #2 was already coming out so soon! I remember doing the cover reveal for the first one a while ago! :)

    Also looking forward to getting to Let The Sky Fall.. been hearing great things about it! :)

    Thanks for stopping by, Amy!

  13. I got that same Tor delivery, though Saturday instead of Friday. I'm super excited about Planet of Thieves. Haven't read Silver, so we'll see. I'll try that one at least. The covers are prettyyyyyy.

    1. I am looking forward to Planet of Thieves. It sounds awesome. I also do want to read Silver. I requested it last year for review and never got it. :( My library (or any surrounding libraries) doesn't have it, but they have it listed as on order so I put a hold on it for whenever they get it. The covers are gorgeous!!!
