Weekly Recap / Stacking the Shelves (62) With All the HarperTeen Awesomeness!!

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Hey guys!! I missed posting last week due to my computer dying. We had a power surge because a transformer (the electrical kind) shorted out or something on my street. Unfortunately for me, my poor six year old desktop computer didn't like it and decided it no longer wanted to power up. Luckily, hubs looked around and found a laptop for me. It's a Toshiba and it's pretty great! I've never had a laptop before, so it's going to take a little while to get used to it. Also it runs Windows 8 which is a whole new world to me. Anyways, besides my new laptop, I have quite a few really awesome books from the last two weeks. Harper Collins just put up all sorts of great titles and I went a little nuts. In my defense, the earliest release I got is the end of December. I did try to do a post last week at the last minute, but I am having some major issues with the laptop camera and my webcam. The sound is all weird. Hopefully it will work, but it didn't work for my BGDC post very well yesterday.I will get onto this since it's a huge haul this time! I totally understand if you don't watch my ridiculously long vlog. It's seriously like 12 minutes long. I apologize lol!

  1. I went crazy for those Harper titles too!! I'm sooooo excited to start Dear Killer, The Promise of Amazing, No One Else Can Have you and Cruel Beauty!! I'm really jealous of Frigid and Killing Sarai!! Sounds super duper good! I love both authors :) I'm glad those Harper titles are for next year or else I'd be in trouble with my reading schedule! lol! Anyway, I hope you enjoy all these books, Amy! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on all of them!! Happy reading and have a wonderful week ahead! *tackle hugs*

  2. Haha! That is a lot of books, but at least you have plenty of time to read them. So sorry about your computer, but at least you got a laptop. I can't imagine using anything else.
    Enjoy the books!

    1. This post took forever to do to get all the links and stuff and then recording my vlog lol!! I really like my laptop, it's just a bit different and trying to get used to it. Especially Windows 8. I think once I get used to it I will love how it's set up, but it's a bit annoying now.

  3. OMG A million great books! I try to stay away from Netgalley and Edelweiss but I might have to venture over for Cruel Beauty and Panic since I'm really looking forward to those! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Lol!! I went on Edelweiss and saw all the Harper titles and was freaking out because there are so many I want to read!! I had no control whatsoever.

  4. I've been avoiding Edelweiss because I'm already requesting way too many books from Netgalley. I hate to double that!

    Love a lot of the books you picked up. Can't wait to read your reviews.

    Also, highly recommend THE HUNGER CHRONICLES to anyone reading your post - free, but an absolutely amazing story.

    1. If the books from Edelweiss were coming out this year I wouldn't have gotten so many. I am already pretty full for the rest of the year. Since they are next year it's all good lol!!

      I got The Hunger Chronicles after reading your review on your blog!! I was very curious!

  5. Awesome book haul. I have way to many Edelweiss and NetGalley books to read. It is like an addiction. I am so happy you got a new computer. It almost feels like your missing an appendage or something when you have to go without one.

    1. I swear when my computer wouldn't power up I was on the verge of a panic attack. I didn't know what to do with myself. Luckily my hubs is awesome and got me a new laptop.

  11. Totally jealous of everyone that is auto-approved by Harper - I'm sooo excited for Cruel Beauty and The Promise of Amazing, they look so great.

    BTW, I think that piece of swag you put in your hair is a bookmark (w/a charm attached). lol I only know because I saw one last time and didn't know what it was either, haha!

    Anyway, hope you enjoy everything!

  13. I am so so so close to jumping onto EW and requesting every Harper title- but I am also so so so close on finishing my 6 week e galley ban. So no requesting it is for me!

    BUT. I MUST KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF PANIC AND CRUEL BEAUTY.

    Happy reading, love! <33

  14. Wowzers, I don’t even know where to start. I’m waiting to see some of those Harper reviews first, the last batch was kind of disappointing. I do want Dear Killer though :)

  15. The video looks great, perfect sound and it's all synced perfect!
    Wow, you did get LOTS of books! I'm so far behind I avoid netgalley and edelweiss. I've actually never been approved on edelweiss (though I've only requested once or twice ;) so I don't even visit. But I gotta say, you are tempting me girl! When they are so far out it's easy to use the excuse that there's plenty of time.

  16. Well, I stuck around till the very end so that means I'm awesome right?! Anyways the sound was perfect and the video was synced and everything so YAY! What a freaking haul girl, WOW. Avalon, Cruel Beauty, Elusion are all ones I requested on Edelweiss but my luck with them can be sketchy so *crossing my fingers* haha Very curious about House of Ivy & Sorrow too. Oh and I wish I could drive up to Boston and meet YOU and meet up with you guys! It sounds like it'll be an AMAZING time :D Congrats on ALL your goodies doll - enjoy!

  17. Did you get auto-approved for those Harper titles this week too? I am gonna cry! I want to be white listed so bad but I just don't think they like me. I am still waiting for them to click the button and approve me. GAH!

    And congratulations on winning my blog giveaway!
