Weekly Wrap-Up + Stacking the Shelves (4)

I was gone this week while I did tons of errands, went to jury duty, saw Demi Lovato in concert, and was generally responsible. (FYI? Totally overrated.) Hope everyone had a wonderful week, and it'll be back to normal around here now :)

First, the winner of my FATED giveaway was...
Inky from Book Haven Extraordinaire!
Congrats Inky! Your book is on the way :)

A touching, powerful novel, though I wasn't quite the target audience. 3.5 Stars
PLUS, you can win a finished copy! Just click the link. US/Canada only.

I don't think I've ever met a funnier group of ladies.

Coming up next week...
A review of Something Like Normal by Trish Doller (spoiler: BRILLIANT), and tons of excitement in preparation for ALA!

Also, I'll be participating in the Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop that starts on June 20, so make sure to come back Wednesday!

And onto my shelves!
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

    1. I've heard such great things about The List (and it was on the YALSA reader's choice list, it has to be good!), I can't wait to finally start it. And yesss, Monument 14 is seriously SUPER high on my TBR list. After hearing Emmy talk about it and seeing how many people love it, I can't get to it fast enough.

      Thank you for stopping by :)

    1. My NGs are SUPER awesome this week, my hardest choice is figuring out which one I'll read next! I immediately downloaded Meant To Be, i think I'm going to give that a go first. Love and Other Perishable items has such a unique spin on love stories, I'm excited for it.

    1. My library is FANTASTIC, I'm always in awe at the variety and how quickly they get them! I'm excited for Being Friends With Boys, I've been dying to read it for awhile and it finally just came in (darn holds before me! This is what i get for not remembering to put it on hold pre-release) - it's going on a mini blog tour through a lot of my regular blog reads and it's just making me want to read it faster haha.
