Stacking the Shelves (14) & Weekly Recap

So, Staking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.
I finally had time to remake the meme pic. YAY! So let's start! Sorry for the quality of the pics as always, took them on my ipod.
I had a pretty AWESOME week. I won some AMAZING books. I entered a reviews challenge & getting through review books faster.
OMG!!! I pre-ordered these two a week before their release. It was done on a whim. I just wanted them SO BAD! >__< (not very patient) Those two were...
1.Glitch (Glitch #1) by Heather Anastasiu
2. Nevermore (Maximum Ride #8) by James Patterson
I am part of the Glitch blog tour (stops here the 14) & tried to get it on ebook & even had to borrow from electronic library from pub, BUT NOTHING WORKED! So i just ended up buying a copy since it was so cheap.
AND NEVERMORE AH!!!! I LOVE the Maximum Ride series. The last book wasn't as AWESOME but I still wanna see how it ends...which is spoiled by the prologue by Angel -___- (really!!?!?!) SO FRUSTRATED that they did that but whatever. PLUS it included 5 chapters from "Confessions of a murder Suspect"!! (Pic below-excuse horrible me in the background)
I won 2 SUPER AWESOME BOOKS!!! It really was a surprise, even though I entered TONS of giveaways for it. I still couldn't believe I HAD WON A COPY. Those books are...
1. White Lines by Jennifer Banash (ARC)
2. Monument 14 (Monument 14 #1) by Emmy Laybourne
OMG! OMG! OMG! White lines sounds like a contemporary (set in the 80's) that I MIGHT REALLY LOVE. Plus i read sample & LOVED IT! It comes out APRIL 4th 2013!!! Which I won from the Book Whales Thanks!
I also won Monument 14 & I have heard tons of GREAT things about it so I am excited to read it PLUS ITS SIGNED!! (Pic below) thanks Rachel from Paper Cuts.
Almost forgot, again, that I entered Nikki from Fiction Freak in a surrender/Mirage Giveaway & she won! SO she sent me one of the books my way & I got Surrender (Possession #2) by Elana Johnson SIGNED!!! [Sorry forgot to take pic of signature] Thanks BBF! (plus a surprise book! =D
I traded with Tiffany from Book-Marks the Spot! Whom I just helped re-make their blog design. (My first real job) and got the books this week! Which were...
1. Infinity (Chronicles of Nick #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
2. A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn
AH! I traded these books BECAUSE I LOVE these two AWESOME writers. I will read & LOVE anything that Sherrilyn Kenyon writes. I LOVED her adult series SO MUCH PLUS ACHERON! Alex Flinn is AWESOME with re-tellings. I loved Beastly & Cloaked so def have been waiting a long time to read this one.

    1. LOL..who wouldn't want to go to Eileen's library! ^_^ Thanks for stopping by!

  6. That's so awesome you got The Lost Prince! Monument 14 also sounds really good :)

  7. I hope you like Glitch, I just got done reading it and loved it. My review will be up sometime next week. I can't wait to read Monument 14, you are so lucky. I also can't wait for Nevermore. It's been a while since I read the series. I'm glad the books made it there safely. I was worried they weren't going to make it. LOL

    1. I like it so far & I am reviewing and giving away on the 14th! AND U must pick up the Maximum Ride series again, it TIS AWESOME! And they did come safely & are now pretty on my shelves! =D

    2. Hi! just wanted to stop by and thank you personally for re-doing our blog! It is fantastic! :D :D :D :D :D

  8. Haha I did my STS on Tynga's this week because I blog there on Wednesday's and we all switch off every now and then. Anyway, YOU HAVE THE LOST PRINCE! gah, I am so jealous. I didn't like Glitch, like... at all, but that's just me. It had insta-love and the characters were a bit annoying in my opinion. I got sick of words like "Crackin'" "shuntin'" "gnangy" and "godlam'd" really quickly. I know others love it, so I hope you love it too! You have an amazing haul this week!

    1. LOL>..yeah the lingo & insta-love is what i heard turns ppl off. AND the LOST Prince was a complete surprise. I wasn't expecting to be approved but now I tis very HAPPY ^__^

  9. I'm so jealous you got The Lost Prince :p ! I'm a huge fan of the Iron Feys series and I can't wait to start this spin off series.
    I hope you'll enjoy reading these books.
    Happy reading !
