January 11, 2015 Stacking the Shelves, Wrap-Up 10

Weekly Wrap Up

It’s the weekend again! Three Kings Day has come and gone, and with it, another week of holiday vacations for us in Puerto Rico. Plenty people on the island are already preparing to go back to work, or to school, while I’m here in my house like:

I’m still on vacation, and will continue to be so until the 20th of January! Between scheduling blog posts, and binge watching series on Netflix, I don’t want these vacations to end.

In case you missed it:

You can also find the blog button in the sidebar (located at the bottom of this page). 🙂

Also on Twitter, I’m giving away a $5 Amazon Gift Card! Try your luck 🙂

What Happened This Week:

Around the Web:

Asti confesses that she’s not really a big fan of audiobooks. She loves podcasts instead.

Karen @ For What It’s Worth shares her current musical obsession: George Ezra. I got to agree with her; he’s awesome.

Lola discusses the unfortunate feeling when you hate a book by an author you like.

Jeann shares her 2015 commitments.

Cait @ Paper Fury wows us again with her brilliant insight on retellings.

I’ve got to admit that I’ve been on Facebook more than I’d like to say, and one of my friends shared this video with me; the process of making a book. I thought it was really interesting, which is why I’m sharing it with you guys!

 

 

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and it’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books,gifts and of course ebooks! It gives us bloggers a chance to share what we books we’ve acquired over the last week(s).

I finally received the books I bought as part of the Barnes and Noble end of the year bargain books sale! I’m pretty proud of myself, as I only bought a couple of books.

One Day by David Nicholls

Bossypants by Tina Fey

Eleanor & Park- Special Barnes and Noble Edition by Rainbow Rowell

Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella

Despite what the price tags say, each book cost me $2.99, except Eleanor & Park, which my mom bought for me (it was ($10!).

Gifted:

My mom gifted me the Game of Thrones boxset for Three Kings Day because she knows I’m a fan of the show. I’ve heard the books are way better… so I guess I’ll have to see.

My best friend has recently moved away, and couldn’t take so many books with her, so she told me to take whichever books I wanted. In the end I choose The Angel Experiment School’s Out Forever by James Patterson (first 2 books in his Maximum Ride series) because I don’t remember what happened in them and want to continue the series; and also Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire because I just want to read this one and get it over with.

For Review: 

I actually got a couple of books for review, I blame the holidays and my lack of self-control with Edelweiss, so I’ll wait until next week to post those

  • Yay thanks for sharing my post and very exciting to hear you finally have a blog button! I’ll be adding you definitely to my blog stat! ooh, if you haven’t read E&P yet, do you want to buddy read it? I need to read it too. Your mum has been lovely for gifting you some awesome bookish presents. Have a lovely week Marianne!

    • I have read it, but it was like 2 years ago… I could always definitely re-read it. Let me know 🙂 My mother has finally come to terms with me and my book hoarding, haha. You too, Jeann!

  • I hope you enjoy all your new books! Sales, such dangerous things lol I hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation! Have a wonderful week <3

  • Le sigh. Oh how I wish I were on a forever kind of holidays. Anyway, I saw that video on Facebook as well, and yeah. It was beautiful. I so want to smell the pages. Lol.

    Enjoy your week of lazing around, hun!

    • My week of lazing around is almost over… but at least I’ve made the most of it! Hahaha. I so understand wanting to smell the pages… I was mesmerized by the video.

  • LOL, that gif is perfect. I’m pretty sure my hair and eyes totally looked like that while I was on break. I go back tomorrow *sobs* I really want to read Tina Fey’s book and One Day, I’ve heard great things! So lucky, my B&N NEVER has sales.

    • Why aren’t vacations longer? *sobs with you* LOL there isn’t a B&N where I live… I just have to survive with online sales once a year. xD

  • Ooh, good luck with all those GoT! I want to read them but I’m terrified of the size. hehe. N’Awww, thanks for the shout out to my post too! ^-^ I LOVE ELEANOR AND PARK!! So sweet! Although Fangirl is firmly my favourite Rowell read.

    • I saw the lenght of the first book and felt SO afraid… but hey I’ve tackled the Mortal Instruments series so Game of Thrones shouldn’t be so difficult… No problem Cait! Your posts are always awesome 🙂
