Hi there! Once again, it’s Sunday, and time for my weekly wrap up post, where I recap everything of note that’s happened in the last seven days, including my Stacking the Shelves post – and this time it’s a big one, thanks to Christmas!
No vlog yet again – I swear one day I will take a breath and sit down. But it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you, STAND, MEN AND WOMEN OF THE BLOGOSPHERE.
Herm. Got a bit carried away there. I just finished watching the extended edition of the Hobbit. I’m in a bit of a Tolkien mood 😉
Currently reading: These Broken Stars. It had a slow start, but I’m starting to get sucked in!
Currently listening to: SO MUCH NEW MUSIC. The Catching Fire soundtrack, the Pacific Rim soundtrack, the Desolation of Smaug extended soundtrack, Fall Out Boy’s Save Rock and Roll, and Katy Perry’s Prism.
Currently watching: My new movies 😀 The Hobbit, Iron Man 3, and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
Currently eating/drinking: All the cookies from Christmas are gone D: I had a strong-willed moment last night and chucked them all out so I wouldn’t eat them, but now weak Kayla is back and I’m craving peanut butter again. I settled for a spoon of Nutella and a lot of water.
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Check out her blog here! Basically, it’s a time where I get to show off all the books I got in the past week (purchased, netgalley, borrowed, etc).
Ohhh this was a good, good week. Between gifts, gift cards that I spent, and Christmas money that I spent, I’m almost overwhelmed by all the new books I have to read. WHAT DO I READ FIRST??
- The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau
- Control by Lydia Kang
- All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
- These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
- Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
- Dare You To by Katie McGarry
- Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
- The Tales of Beedle the Bard by JK Rowling
Control wasn’t supposed to be out till the 26th, but I was at Barnes and Noble on the 23rd and lo and behold there it was on the shelf! I couldn’t resist! And look!!! All three of the Pushing the Limits series in HARDBACK. Oh I couldn’t stop touching them when they showed up in the mail. And then the HP book was super cheap on GoHastings – I think I paid $2! I couldn’t say no to that.
I’ve already read Cracked, thanks to NetGalley, but I wanted a physical copy for myself. And I finally caved on that awful cover for DoSaB because I figured it was a gift card and not my own money so I wasn’t losing anything! Do you see how brave I get when I have nothing to lose? Sounds like a John Green novel right there.
And then… *drumroll please* THE BIG FINALE
I just… LOOK AT THEM. I couldn’t believe my mom actually got me the HP set, despite her confusion at me wanting another copy of the books I already owned. I love you mommy ❤

As always, this is a rough schedule, and I may add more or skip a day depending on how life rolls.
So now that I’ve shown off my incredibly amazing book week, what about you? What did you get for Christmas, or buy for yourself with Christmas money or gift cards? Enjoy the last few days of 2013!
