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! =)
Anyway, here's what I scored this week:
HUGE thanks to Disney-Hyperion, St. Martin's Press & author Ashley Elston for these ARCs!

Look for new giveaways in the coming weeks, including our first ever Twitter-only contest and a giveaway of the complete Maze Runner series in anticipation of the new film!
- Authors Who Get All Our Money - the Top Ten authors who take up the most space on our shelves
- Waiting on Wednesday - waiting on The Orphan Queen & the next Veronica Mars book
- SYNC 2014 - Week 12 Books Up for Grabs - Divided We Fall & The Red Badge of Courage

I kept hearing awesome rumblings about this one, but as a Romeo and Juliet retelling IN REVERSE, I was pretty sold on the idea. =)
I loved the first book, and I got this one for review, but I just couldn't fit it into the schedule. Plus, I'd seen someone who loved the first book say that this one was kind of painful to get through, so I thought the audio might help in that respect.
