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! =)My girl is officially a first grader as of Monday. I can't believe how fast time flies and how much difference a year makes!
Kindergarten vs. First Grade

I tried to choose Harper titles on Edelweiss sparingly, but I still got carried away. Oh, well. C'est la vie.
So, that's my haul. How about you? What did you get this week?
The Week in Review:
September ARC Giveaway!!!
- To Read, Don't Own - the top ten books we want to read but don't own yet
- Waiting on Wednesday - this week we're waiting on Princes of Thorns & Suspicion
- The End of Summer TBR Wrap-up - the end results of our Summer TBR challenges
I'm finally letting myself read this. Eeeek! I've not read anything from Clare Legrand before, but I follow her on Twitter and she is just lovely. I'm already enjoying it so much and I have no doubt that I'll end up loving this faerie story inspired by The Nutcracker.
Re-listening to this in preparation for the sequel, which is due out in a few weeks. I've been not-so-patiently awaiting The Infinite Sea, as I MUST know what happened to Evan. I'm sure I'm not alone in this.
