Xpresso Weekly: Stacking the Shelves (17)

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

Hi lovelies! Do anything exciting this week? Mine was pretty lax, we had very blah weather so I don’t have any epic life events to report. On the blog, though, I have a few things to mention. I had the Treachery of Beautiful Things blog tour drop by you can check out my interview with Ruth Frances Long here. I had a second blog tour – Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout – where Jennifer talks about sex in YA and you can win a copy of both Obsidian and Onyx! Also, finally(!!) I was able to reveal the cover for Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes that you have been seeing around my blog coverless. You still have time to enter the giveaway package for it which includes an ARC of it!

Also of note, I am an official nominee for Nicest Blogger, Well-Known Blogger, and Promo Queen for the Bloggy Awards. Thanks so much for everyone who nominated me! It means so much and I feel very honored to be there amongst so many fabulous blogs! The voting for the winner opens soon-ish. I will link you to where you can go do just that next week! Love your faces!!
