Stacking the Shelves (79)

Posted by

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews featuring the books we got this week, and I also mention blog news/happenings of the past week.

Can you believe there’s only 10 days before Christmas? Eep! And after this week I have 2 weeks vacation where I don’t have to check my email ONCE! Woot! And then it will be 2014! Talking about 2014 – who’s going to BEA? I’ll be attending again this year and we just booked our hotel (so exciting!) I hope I get to meet even more bloggy friends this year! πŸ™‚

I received for review:
IMM4 18545084

*Thanks toΒ Grand Central Publishing, Entangled Teen, Sourcebooks Fire, and Simon PulseΒ  for these awesome pretties!*

I was gifted:
I got this for Christmas from the pretty Amy (Book Loving Mom) – Thanks, dollface!

That’s all for me this week!
Have a great weekend! πŸ™‚

    I’m kind of excited for Christmas, finally…but it’s for the wrong reasons, lol. I’m less excited about the actual day and more excited that winter is going to one month closer to Spring. I hope you enjoy your new books!

  2. Sam @ Realm of Fiction

    10 days!! That’s crazy. This year is nearly over soon too. It’s all flown by so fast. πŸ™‚ I hope you enjoy your 2 week break, Giselle! And have fun reading your new books. I’m especially looking forward to seeing what you think of Salt. It sounds pretty good.

  3. Amy @ Book Loving Mom

    I got Salt and Ruined also!! I am about half done with Ruined now and I’m liking it so far even though Sam is a bit irritating lol!! So glad that your gifts arrived on time!! I hope you enjoy them!!! We already discussed BEA and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can make it happen! My mom rocks that she wants to help pay for it for me and go with me to NYC! I haven’t been to NYC since I was 22 so it’s been almost 10 years! Enjoy your vacation babe!! Love ya!!

  4. Kelsey

    I don’t think I’ll be able to go to BEA this year, we might not have the money since we are planning something else. Yay for having a break too! I can’t believe Christmas is almost here lol.
    Ooh that series you were gifted is one I want to read someday, I hope you enjoy it and share your thoughts! Enjoy the review ones too πŸ™‚

    Great haul, Giselle!
    Oh, how I wish I could plan a trip to BEA this year! If only I won the lottery!
    I’m now a bit stressed out cause I still haven’t started mailing all my Xmas cards!

  6. Charlotte

    I wish I am a millionaire to be able to go to BEA. I need around 10K US$ for the back and forth fare and visa processing. Can you please go to BEA for the both of us, Giselle?

    I am happy that you’ll be able to take a break.

    As for your haul, they’re unfamiliar to me except for SALT which I’ve seen in others’ STS posts. I hope you have fun reading all of your beauties. I wish my friends would also give me bookish gifts. πŸ˜€

    Advance Merry Christmas!

    The Summer I Wasn’t Me and #Scandal! They both sound great!

    Two weeks of not checking your email? There’s no possible way I could do that. I’ll be spending my vacation working. πŸ™

    • Giselle

      Oh yeah! If I could I would never check email lol. If I was working and checking emails that’s not a vacation for me. I’m taking vacation to get a break from that πŸ˜‰ You should take a read vacation, chickie! Good to get a mental break sometimes.

  8. Kristin@Blood,Sweat and Books

    Doesn’t the guy on the cover of Ruined look like the Actor from Being Human? Least I think so. This is the second time I’ve seen Salt today, I think I should check it out. Great Haul this week and Huzzah for 2 weeks vacation!!

  9. Alexia @ Adventures in Reading

    I am SO jealous about #scandal by Sarah Ockler. I requested it from EW but not sure if I’ll get it or not.I am SO excited for Christmas! Eeeeep, my favorite holiday of the year. Plus my bday is in 2 weeks so I’ll have a LOT to celebrate.

    Doesn’t look like BEA’s going to happen this year. So you’ll have to have fun for me too.

  10. Eileen @ Singing and Reading in the Rain

    Oh my God all of the emails you’ll be getting and having to sort through when you get back! but that’s awesome that you’ve already planned your trip to BEA for 2014! I’m still on the fence about it because this year is the last year that it’ll be in New York City but at the same time I don’t know if I want to go again because of high school and being too busy πŸ™ But I’m super jealous of #scandal and The Summer I Wasn’t Me. I’ve always loved Sarah Ockler’s books and I really liked Jessica Verdi’s first book! πŸ™‚

    Happy reading! <3
