Stacking the Shelves (80) & Christmas Hiatus

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.

I can’t believe Christmas is here eeek! I love this time of year! I hope everyone has a wonderful week, a great holiday, and make sure to stuff your faces too! Just a note that Xpresso Reads is going on a short hiatus until after the holidays. I want to enjoy time with family instead of worrying about posts and blogging. We also all need a breather once in a while, ya know. I do, however, have a couple of holiday giveaway posts pre-scheduled to go up this week so you can still expect a bit of life on this site. I will be back next week, just before the new year, with some fun posts! I will still, of course, be all over Twitter until then 🙂

I received for review:

*Thanks to Harlequin Teen, Random House Children’s Books, and St. Martin’s Press for these pretties!*

Have a fantastic holiday week, muffins!
See you all next week!

    Nice haul of books. I see that you got The Secret Diamond sisters as well. Lots of awesome books in this haul. The Ann Brashares book is also popular this week. Great haul sweetie.

  2. Alexia @ Adventures in Reading

    Yup, a TON of us got We Were Liars! Exciting! I heard parts of And We Stay are in verse so I didn’t request that one. SO bummed that I got denied The Here and Now. I wanted that one SO much.I requested The Secret Diamond Sisters but I haven’t gotten a response yet.

    Like you, Christmas is my FAVORITE time of the year! So excited right now. Hope you have an awesome Christmas!

    I received copies of We Were Liars and The Here and Now, and I can’t wait to get started on both books, I hope you enjoy them and the rest of your books too! I hope you have a fab break and Christmas! 🙂

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
    issues? A handful of my blog audience have complained
    about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.

    Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

    I really liked Michelle Madow’s Remembrance books when she was self-published, so I definitely am going to have to give The Secret Diamond Sisters a try. It definitely sounds like one of those books that are really cute at the same time mysterious 🙂

    Enjoy and have a great holiday! <33

    Hope you have a lovely time off and a fabulous holiday with your family.

    Really looking forward to your thoughts on We Were Liars and I have to check out Grim, that sounds fantastic. Happy Reading!
