Xpresso Weekly: Stacking the Shelves (37)

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

How’s everyone enjoying 2013 so far? I had a great vacation, but now I’m kind of paying for it by being extremely busy. But when you love your job it ain’t so bad! So hey, I just realized I never officially announced it but I’m sure you have noticed something different on the blog! I sure hope so 😉 Xpresso Reads needed a change. I outgrew the pink and girly, wanting something more chic and grown up so I decided to give it a makeover. Thanks so much for all the lovely comments on it I was overwhelmed with the reactions it got, and so happy because I’m truly loving it and plan to keep this one for a very long time! It’s amazing how much it renewed my love of blogging.

Anyhow, enough about moi. Did you all enter the epic new years giveaways I had posted? One is over but the other is still on for a couple of days! Enter to win your book of choice here.

    Some lovely New Adult reads this week, Giselle! I’m seriously excited for all three of these, I haven’t read any of them. I hope to see your reviews for all of these soon! And *drools* I WANT YOUR LAPTOP.

    Happy reading, Giselle!

    I’m very curious about Losing It, and I love that pic of your Macs- they look like the three bears from Goldilox and the Three Bears haha

    Happy Reading!!!

    Great books this week. I have Hopeless and can’t wait to read it, have heard wonderful things about it. Ten Tiny Breaths sounds interesting too will have to check it out. Love your Macs, I’m a Microsoft girl myself, but they do look lovely. Happy reading and enjoy blogging on your new machine!

    That cover for Hopeless is so neat! I love the effects done on it. Also, I don’t know if I’ve said this before, but I really do love your new design, Giselle! When I redid my blog design, my blogging love was renewed as well. It’s just amazing what a change can do! <3 Also, yay for getting a new Mac!! I seriously want one, and since my family has slowly started adopting Apple products, I hope we can get a Mac. 😉

    Fantastic haul Giselle! Enjoy your lovlies.

    Oh my aching wisdom teeth, THEY’RE SO BEAUTIFUL! First, I want to say these new graphics are gorgeous. Totally fashionable, sparkly, and I LOVES THEM. Second, back to your new computers, I must reiterate: THEY’RE SO BEAUTIFUL. Duuuuude, how do you ever go outside with those in your possession?

    Oh, yeah and the books. Which we’re all actually supposed to be here for. THEY’LL BE AWESOME, I’m sure. OH. BUT THE COMPUTERS. xD

  6. Sudeshna Thakurta

    Oh my god! That is a great Christmas gift.
    Oh and I haven’t read any of those books. But they sound great. I’m definitely gonna give them a go! Btw, did you notice this new follower aboard?

  7. Megan K.

    Awesome haul! TEN TINY BREATHS was actually quite a good read. Not perfect (I have yet to read a really good NA book), but still pretty enjoyable. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!

    OH-EM-GEEE. A NEW LAPTOP. AND A MAC, NO LESS. I’m still stuck using this dinosaur, called Dell. :/ That is definitely an AWESOME Christmas present!

    Have a lovely week, hon!

  8. Melissa @ Book Nerd Reviews

    Really nice haul this week Giselle! I am really wanting to read Losing It – with all these ‘New Adult’ titles coming out, I am keen to try some. I did receive Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, I’m interested to see what it’s like!

  9. Amy

    Yay!! I hope you love Losing It!! I bought Ten Tiny Breaths and Hopeless last week and can’t wait to read them. They sound so good. I saw Jenni got Hopeless too. We should read it together!! 😉 Anyways. Love ya chick!!

  10. Book Wookie

    I love my Macbook Pro. I was a Windows user before I got it. Now I would never go back!
    I read Slammed by Colleen Hover, so I think I’ll have to check out Hopeless as well.
    Happy reading!

    I love ALL my Apple products. They make awesome computers. 🙂

    I’ve been eyeing Losing It lately … it does look really good! And I have the other two books you received, but haven’t read them yet. The sales were awesome last week!

    Enjoy your reading!

  12. Lyra

    Your new design is definitely gorgeous! Once I save enough money I’m definitely getting you to redesign my blog! 😉

    Losing It was a great read – I think you’ll enjoy it. I’ve also heard nothing but good things about Hopeless.
