Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!
Well, it looks my wireless device doo-hicky is not working properly anymore. So that means no internet for Jessica again. Sigh...no internet makes Jessica a crazy girl! Today I'm off to the store to buy a new one. Wish my laptop was more like my old one that had no issues with internet connection. The new one just doesn't want to connect. It can't for some reason. My cousin tried explaining it to me two years ago, but didn't really make much sense to me! LOL!
Other than computer issues, again, happening on Friday night, the week was pretty good. Got some great new reads that I will hopefully be able to show you now! I'm on a different computer and it feels SO weird blogging on it!! LOL!
Here's what I bought:
The Crown and the Arrow by Renee Ahdieh
Relic by Gretchen McNeil
Dorothy Must Die Stories Vol 2 by Danielle Paige
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
The Wondrous and the Wicked by Page Morgan--I had the ARC but never got my keeper copy. I was getting one from Apollycon, but then Page changed plans early on. So keeper copy unsigned it is!
Almost Midnight by C.C. Hunter--another keeper copy, the ARC just didn't have the same beauty as the finished copy! LOL!
For review from the authors I received:
Reckoning by Veronica Wolff (ARC)
Lost by Alyssa Rose Ivy (ARC)
THANK YOU Veronica & Alyssa!!!
Then I received my OTSPSecretSister present for this month:
a bag AND box of Reese's Pieces Eggs which delighted me to no end!
Burn by Elissa Sussman
the Tangled Funko Pop--another delight!!
and 3 mini pots of flowers to grow: daisies, poppies, and sunflowers! So excited to grow these! Hope the squirrels stay away from them!
THANK YOU Secret Sis!!!
Then I won a prize pack from Dawn Kurtagich, who lives all the way in London!! It was quite exciting to win something from her! LOVED her debut The Dead House!
I got two sketchbooks, bookmarks, a little hair clip that also looks like a hat! So cute! Then there's also a handmade Valentine's Day card!!!
THANK YOU Dawn!!
Then I bought myself a few goodies at Barnes and Noble, just because:
Scrump Funk Pop
Cookie Monster Funko Pop, but the New York Comic Con version, which is FUZZY!!
and a color it yourself Sugar Skull! I've seen it a few times and then decided I wanted to go ahead and paint one! Hopefully it will come out pretty!! LOL!
And that was my haul this week! Hoping that by buying a new wireless connector thingy will be the cure to my internet issue, yet again! It's never ending! Doesn't this word understand that as a blogger, I physically NEED internet?! It's a priority right up there with books! And you know, food and water! LOL!
