Stacking the Shelves (26)

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

Last week I complained it was cold, and this week I have a cold! Booo! It’s been a little quiet on the blog the past couple of days because of it, too. I hope you didn’t miss my Fresh Batch too much. >.< But, cold aside, this was a pretty good week and a fairly big (for me anyways) announcement was made – I started a new book tour service where I will be organizing blog tours and cover reveals. You can check out the new site here: and sign up as a tour host, or if you’re an author, book a tour! πŸ˜‰

A short and shiny haul for me this week! (Really! Rebel Heart can be used as a mirror!)Β

*Big thank to HBG USA and Random House Canada for these shiny pretties!*

Peace out, lovelies!!

    Short but sweet haul! I really need to get on reading Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Blood Red Road. This STS makes me realise how behind I am. Yay for Xpresso Book Tours, so excited to hop on some tours. Love the Facebook Page for Read and Reviewed! You never showed me that!!

    *stares at the shiny*

    I was so excited to get the email for the Days of Blood & Starlight eARC (and I’ve already devoured it!). I still need to read Blood Red Road, but I’ve heard it’s great.
    I really love all the blog designs you’ve done; you’re very talented. And I’m so glad you started Xpresso Book Tours!

    Come see what I got in my Goodie Basket this week!

    Oooh nice haul, Giselle! Short but great! OMG! I’m so jealous of Days of Blood and Starlight! I can’t wait to find out what happens next with Akiva. <3 Rebel Heart is SO GOOD can't wait to see what you make of it! Hopefully you'll love it just as much as I did [and holy bazoozles did I LOVE it]. πŸ˜› Enjoy your haul and feel better soon!

    Oh my God, REBEL HEART. I so want that book! You lucky girl! πŸ˜› And I really need to read DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE, too; I’ve been hearing lots of rave reviews about it! πŸ™‚

    Awesome haul, Giselle!

  5. Ivana

    Shiny! I’ll be reading Daughter of Shadow and Bone next week, then I’ll probably be jealous of everyone who’s got Days of Blood and Starlight πŸ™‚
    Happy reading, Giselle, and get well soon!
    Here is my StS.

    Ahhhh OMG!! *runs and snatches both books* I am dying to read both of those!! Rebel Heart looks very shiny! The Cover for Days of Blood and Starlight is just absolutely gorgeous! I am so excited for you that you started doing tours. I know you will rock at it!!

  7. Elodie

    I really have to pick up a copy of Blood Red Road because the series sounds awesome !! Great haul Giselle, I’m hoping you’ll enjoy both of these books !

  8. Leanne Yang

    Even though I can’t afford to buy custom designs, I’m loving all these designs you’re doing! They’re all so beautiful, especially the banner you have for this post. πŸ˜€

    Ooooh I’m SUPER jealous of Days of Blood & Starlight, I can’t wait for my copy to arrive already >.< And Rebel Heart looks very promising…the cover is so shiny too O.O Hope you feel better soon Giselle, congrats again on the book tour launch and enjoy your pretties (the precioussss β™₯)

  10. Aylee

    Ooh, these are two of my most anticipated 2012 reads for sure!! Wow, I am just mesmerized by Days’ gorgeous cover and Rebel Heart’s shiny one… I hope you LOVE these two because I’ve been hoping they would really live up to the first books.

    Enjoy your two books! πŸ˜€ I wasn’t a huge fan of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I know there are a lot of envious people out there because you got an e-arc of it. hehe

  12. Jasprit

    Oh wow the cover to Rebel Heart is extremely shiny compared to the version we have over here, but I think I prefer your version a lot more! Yay for Days of Blood and Starlight, I started it the other day and I’m enjoying it so far! Hope you enjoy both of these lovelies and feel better soon! hugs! πŸ™‚

    Oh man, you’re going to get bombarded with questions about how you get ARCs and whether you’ll give someone your ARC for that Laini Taylor ARC. Everyone LOVED that first book. I have two copies of Daughter of Smoke and Bone in my house right now and STILL haven’t read it. I probably should.

    Also, I want Rebel Heart so much. That copy is SO shiny. Are they all so shiny?
