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. Oh, and I've started linking up to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews since I'm not using a specific meme title anymore. April's also doing her own Stacking the Shelves posts on Sundays. Stop by and say hi! =)
Happy weekend! I'm starting vacation today, so I'm probably poolside again with I'll Give You the Sun, thanks to Christina letting me borrow her copy. It's the hubby's busy season at work, so we're not technically going anywhere since he can't take any time off right now -- I get a ton of vacation time at work but I have to use it or lose it -- but that doesn't mean I won't be escaping into a good book. :) Katie and I are going to have a bit of a stay-cation, checking out stuff around Dallas that we don't do all that often. Should be nice and relaxing. I'm just hoping the nice weather holds for a bit longer before we're back to those 100° days!
Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee - A labyrinth? Magic? Manipulating time? Yes, please!!! I can't wait to start this one!
Not in the Script by Amy Finnegan - I had so much fun with the other two IF ONLY novels that I'm sure to adore this one, as well. =)
Flat-Out Celeste by Jessica Park - Loved Flat-Out Love when I read it last year. Picked up this follow-up novel for $0.99 for my Kindle last weekend, so I'm not sure it's still on sale.
So, that's my haul. How about you? What did you get this week?

I tried to start reading this earlier this summer but had to put it down for reasons. But I'm devoting the whole weekend and the start of my vacation to it. It's off to a promising start, so I'm sure it'll bowl me over, just as The Sky is Everywhere did.
I had this for review ages ago and read some reviews and decided to move it down the pile. But I was looking for something lighter after all of the Heir of Fire feels, and my library had this audio available. It'll be my first experience with a Simone Elkeles book, and I'm not quite sure what to expect...
