Xpresso Weekly: Stacking the Shelves (3)

Posted by

Xpresso Weekly is my edition of Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews featuring the books
I got this week, and I also mention blog news/happenings of the past week

Hi lovelies! Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms! I had a great week, but pretty uneventful which is good and stress free πŸ™‚ On the blog, though I had a blast. On Tuesday I had the Until I Die blog tour stop by for my review, a great guest post and a giveaway for a signed copy of Die For Me! It’s open worldwide so make sure you’re entered! On Thursday I had the fabulous Devri Walls who showed us a sneak peak of Wings of Arian! Also, make sure you don’t miss the wonderfully badass cover reveal for what quickly became one of my favorite books EVER – The Last Bastion of the Living. Up on my Facebook page I showed you the lovely cover of Asunder, the sequel to Incarnate. And don’t forget: This is the last day to get 10% off everything at The Book Depository – the link is up on the sidebar, where you can also note the two new upcoming tour stops: Crazy Dangerous, and of course The Last Bastion of the Living. Lastly, you will notice a new fab button up on the sidebar for the upcoming Midsummer Dream Fair that Xpresso Read is co-sponsoring. Make sure to check it out and mark your calendars!

    Nice! I am definitely looking forward to hearing how Lucid and Flash Point are. They look so cool!

    I love Meg Cabot, but, though I want to read Underworld, I was disappointed by Abandon. From what I’ve seen this one continues to be kind of meh.

  2. Kara_Malinczak

    I keep seeing Flash Point everywhere. I want that book. Also, isn’t that girl on another famous book cover? And why can’t I remember it? Someone help!! Happy reading. πŸ™‚

  3. Blook Girl

    I love your book haul this week! I’ve been curious about the Abandon Trilogy, so may have to check out the first one and get to Underworld in short order. Lindsey Lost and Flash Point look really interesting, too, so I’ve added them to my GR πŸ™‚

    I am SO jealous of The Catastrophic History of You and Me. That looks/sounds sooo good! I need to get my grubbies on a copy, stat!

    Hope you enjoy all your lovelies from this week πŸ™‚ Love you!

    My book haul:

    I looovved Catastrophic History. The voice was amazing!! Watch out for the twisty twist, haha. That could put you off the book. Wait and see πŸ˜‰

    Happy reading!
