Xpresso Weekly: Stacking the Shelves (6)

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! How’s everyone’s week been? Mine has been super busy, especially this Saturday which was spent running around and cleaning to get ready for my kid’s 2nd bday party that’s today πŸ™‚ And we are finally in JUNE! How exciting is that!! With June comes summer, and with summer comes my Summer Lovin’ giveaway! Did you see? You could win an epic summer release or an ARC of Lucid! Other highlights this week includes my Angel Eyes tour stop where you can read my review and win a copy of the book. There was also the launch of the Midsummer Dream Fair – make sure to check that out this month there will be plenty of fun posts and giveaways! On my Facebook page I posted a cover reveal for Let the Sky Fall as well as for Entice. Lastly, if you missed it and just can’t get enough of me – I was interviewed at The Teen Book Guru last Sunday! Future-wise, you’ll notice on the sidebar there are some new tours that will be dropping by: Temptation, The Color of Snow, and Blind Spot.

Did you miss any reviews this week?

    Nice, Giselle. Saving June was pretty good. I only gave it 3 stars but I know I am in the minority, so you will probably love it.

    I’m SOOOO excited to start Dearly, Beloved!! Eeeeeee! I hope it’s as good as the first one. I’m nervous. Have a great week. <3

  2. Jenni @ Alluring Reads

    Those Chapters deals were awesome! I’m so happy you told me about it! Ooh Blind Spot, I can’t wait to read that one and see your tour stop, so far away though *sigh* Frost looks really good, Saving June is new to me, I’ll have to check that one out on GR. Great haul love!

  3. The Teen Book Guru

    Woah!! Awesome books Giselle!! Oh My Goodness only 5$ for Posession?? Lucky duck!! What awesome deals!! And I think Saving June seems really awesome! Can’t wait to read your review. Awesome haul this week Giselle!

  4. Katie @ BlookGirl

    I really, really need to read Dearly, Departed. I love the cover for the second book! Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side looks/sounds amazing! Can’t wait to see your reviews for that one πŸ™‚

    Very nice book haul, love muffin! Hope Alek has a wonderful birthday <333

  5. Nazish Reads

    I’ve been looking for Jessica’s Guide to Dating the Dark Side at Indigo and Coles but could never find it, I found the second book, but not this one and I really want it since I heard so many positive reviews about it, and you found it at Chapters on sale, lucky. I feel like I’m going to need to either order it online or go to one of the people who work at Indigo and ask them if they can order some, cause I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one in my city who wants it.

    Anyways, great books.

    Here’s my weekly book haul: Saturday on the Shelves (5)

  6. Nerd Girls

    I LOVEEEDDD Saving June! πŸ™‚

  11. Suzanne @ Paranormal Book Fan

    I really want Dearly Beloved. I requested it on Netgalley last night but I’m not expecting to be approved. Random House keep refusing lately for some reason, but I’m still keeping my fingers crossed, I loved Dearly Departed. I actually have the colour of snow too but I forgot to add it, I’ll add it to next weeks πŸ™‚ Awesome haul, enjoy!!

    My Stack

  12. Silverlight

    Aww, Happy Birthday cutie pie!! Terrible two’s are coming…ha I’m sure he won’t be too terrible, he’s too cute to be!

    I’ve never heard of Possession and Dearly is on my radar!

    Great haul, chick! Have a great week and party!

  13. Nicola

    Really great books this week, Giselle! I’m making my way through Saving June and I like it a lot so far. I’ve heard really good things about Frost, can’t wait to see what you think of it.

    Happy reading!

  14. Sam

    I’ve heard so many great things about Saving June – I think I should probably request it too! Frost looks great. I’m eager to read that myself. Lovely haul, Giselle! πŸ™‚

  15. Kelsey

    I love deals at Chapters! I got a great one this week myself :)So jealous of your Dearly, Beloved I can’t wait to read that one!

  16. Emily

    Wow nice haul! I own Possession too! Can’t wait to start it. Dearly, Beloved looks really too, same for Frost. Can’t wait to see your review! πŸ™‚

    My IMM

  17. Eileen

    Ahh I keep forgetting that Saving June’s cover is different than the US version!! o.O Anyway, great haul! I’m so jealous you have Frost because I want it so bad! I still have to read Dearly, Departed, which I think is the book before Dearly, Beloved. And I hope you son’s birthday party goes well!

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  18. Amy

    I hope you Love Possession. I think it was awesome!! Ohhhh Dearly, Beloved!! I requested it from NetGalley, but haven’t heard if I got it or not yet. I think Dearly, Departed was actually the first book I ever got on NetGalley, so I will be sad if they don’t approve me for Dearly, Beloved. Happy Birthday to the little guy!! Hope you all have a great day!!

  19. Grace Fonseca

    Love seeing what people get every week on their STS, Book Hauls, Goodie Bags, etc…. That was an excellent deal on those two books. Nice haul as usual.

  20. Jac

    AWESOME haul this week πŸ™‚ I only got two, and nowhere near as fabulous as your stack!

    Dearly, Beloved!!! (It seems like I’ve been wondering/waiting on that one FOREVER…)

    Great haul! I’m off to check out your review of Midsummer’s Nightmare. I hope you enjoy all your new books. If you have a few minutes I hope you’ll drop by and check out what I got this week πŸ™‚ Happy reading!

  22. Sarah E.

    I want to read Dearly, Beloved – I requested it today on NetGalley

    I love the cover for Possession. It’s really pretty and simple!

  23. Elodie

    Great haul Giselle πŸ™‚ ! I really liked Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side and I’m hoping you will too ! Happy reading darling πŸ˜‰

    I’m seeing Dearly, Beloved on lots of blogs, I may need to check it out.

    Happy Birthday to your little one!

  25. Audris

    Saving June sounds really good and I’ve heard great things about Jessica’s Guide to Dating on The Dark Side. All the books you got this week look great πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

  26. A. Knight @ Paranormal Indulgence

    Pssssh, when I saw people started getting Dearly, Beloved, I all but dropped unconscious to the floor. I HAD NO IDEA THIS WAS UP FOR REVIEW. Best believe I jumped NetGalley so fast, I barely blinked. Can’t wait for my approval! I need an approval. I didn’t realize how much I wanted to read the next book until I saw it up :DD

    And Jessica’s Guide! Have you read that one? It’s one of my first paranormal books and I absolutely adore it. Still, don’t own it but for my kindle though, which is distinctly wonky. I’ll have to rectify that. WHAT A DEAL! Good for you :DD

    Give Handsome a peck on the cheek for me, will you? <333

    (And I secretly wish for you to love Saving June as much as me. Just FYI. ;D)

  27. Alba

    I’ve seen Dearly Beloved everywhere now! :/ but I haven’t read nor own Dearly Departed…I love both book’s covers though…and T_T OMG! Saving June!!

    I cannot cannot believe you got those book so cheap!!
    When I was dying for Possession I paid like 4 times that πŸ™

    Happy reading!!! I’m like the last person to comment.
    here’s my STS-> Stacking The Shelves vlog-> see what books I got this week πŸ˜€ if you’d like to stalk πŸ˜€

  28. Kay

    This makes me want to visit my own Chapters to see if they have Possession, too! Enjoy your new books! πŸ™‚

  29. Shellie

    Awesome haul this week. I loved Possession however I wish that there was a second novel and not just the companion to it. Hope you have a good week =)

  30. Rebecca (Kindle Fever)

    Yay! Dearly, Beloved and Frost. :DD I have them to read as well and I have high expectations for both, lol. Awesome book haul!

    Hope your kid’s b-day party was awesome. πŸ˜€ I’ve been super busy myself as I’m actually moving. Lots to do!
