Xpresso Weekly: Stacking the Shelves (10)

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
.

This week at Xpresso Reads

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! We had crap weather this week but the weekend is full of sun! 😀 So what did you miss this week? What about the TON of new covers that were revealed! I posted a bunch on Facebook, I’ll just link you to the reveal album here, the new ones are on top it’ll just be easier. Includes Requiem (Delirium, #3), Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky, #2), The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3) & more! On the blog I had the Temptation blog tour that stopped by for my review, a guest post, and you can enter two fabulous giveaways. One includes a prize pack with copies of Speechless, Inside Out, and Temptation! As for future tours, you can look forward to the Ashen Winter blog tour that will be dropping by in October which I’m extremely excited for! All tour dates can be found on the sidebar.

    Your son is a cutey-pie! *waves*

    How awesome you got books just as you finished the vlog! I have Throne of Glass too! I’m hoping to read it soon. I saw the Shadow Society when you linked to the cover reveal, it does indeed look interesting 🙂

    I hope you love your books 😀

    Henrietta is seriously so sweet! That’s awesome. I’m really interested to see what you think of Vestige, that one sounds really good. And also the epic-ness that is Stormdancer, I have that problem too where I am often let down by titles that are raved about by everyone else but I have a REALLY good feeling about this one and I think I (and you) are going to love it!

    Hi Alek! You are so adorable, that chunky little hand, so freaking cute!

    Love seeing your face every week now 🙂

    I JUST LOVE YOU, girl.

    AND HANDSOME. *squeals* HANDSOME WAS IN A VIDEO!! *DIES* So fraking cute, that kid is.

    And I’m really digging your haul, Giselle. *fist-bumps* all around for Throne of Glass and Mystic City. Just got those and have to add them officially to my reading lists. LOOK SO GOOD. And I know what you mean about Stormdancer. I think I’ll hold off on that one for a while yet…

    LOVE THE VLOG. <3

    Throne of Glass is doing the rounds at the mo and it’s one that I was having the same thoughts as yourself about it but with so many people talking about it, I decided to put it on my Wish List.

    Hope you like The Night Circus. It’s a beautifully written book.
