So, since my end-of-the-week post isn't just about what I got in my mailbox or on my Kindle each week -- though that is a big part of it, I won't lie -- I decided to change up the title and intro a bit. I might tweak the format a bit over the next few weeks, but for the most part, it'll contain the same stuff: stuff I got, stuff I did, and stuff that's coming up on the blog. Plus, I get to use the awesome GIF you see here and blow kisses to all the people who sent me lovely books and bookish things.This last week seemed longer even than last week -- my first full week back at the office. Maybe it's because I'm already anticipating my three-day weekend, or maybe it's because I woke up on Wednesday thinking it was already Thursday...whatever the reason, I am so glad the weekend is finally here. I plan to spend Monday working on my library. Speaking of, a blog reader told me about this really awesome program to help organize your library, meaning I might not end up using my mad spreadsheet skills after all. Bummer, but this program actually looks really nifty, and I can try it for free for 30 days.
Anyway, here's what I scored this week:
Thank you, Scholastic and Macmillan!!!

Okay, so I've got, like, three unread Elizabeth Eulberg books on my shelf currently, but I am going to read Better Off Friends FIRST because I adore best friend romances like no other. =) I finally requested Sekret because of Lauren's initial thoughts...if she loved it, I'm pretty much guaranteed to, as well. And, well, I couldn't pass up the chance to grab one of my most anticipated retellings. Second Star is a Peter Pan reimagining but with SURFERS. That has awesome written all over it.
I couldn't pass up these daily deals/one-time only steals on Audible. I've seen The Virgin Suicides, but it's been awhile, and I think I'd like the audio. And my friend Emily has been harassing me for ages to finally read Tell the Wolves I'm Home, so maybe now that I have the audio, I'll get on that. I think I've only read one or two John Green books and maybe one David Levithan book, but I liked them, so I'm interested to see how this collab works out...plus, the two narrators for Will Grayson, Will Grayson are pretty awesome.
So, that's my haul. How about you? What did you get this week?
Promotional/Discussion Posts: 2014 Debuts I Need Yesterday, a discussion on Giveaway Bandits, and a promo tour for Morgan Rhodes' Rebel Spring
Jen's Currently Reading/Listening To:
I'm very near to finishing this one and I don't want it to end. I am a hardcore Sarah Fine fan after Sanctum and Fractured -- which barely left my heart intact -- and I'll read absolutely anything this woman writes. This doesn't release for months, but I just couldn't help myself...the pull to read it was too great. =)
I haven't picked out my next listen, but I'm leaning toward Hollow City since I have a review copy.
