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! =)Thank goodness for three-day weekends right after the holidays, amiright? These last two weeks have been killer at work, so I'm in desperate need of an extra day off. Which obviously equates to an extra day of reading! :D Plus, it's supposed to be pretty nice here this weekend, mid-60s and sunshiney, so I'd much rather spend that time away from the office. Even if I should put in some overtime and get ahead, knowing what's in store for me next month. Word to the wise, never enter into a profession that deals with banks a lot because when they merge, it is a freaking nightmare.
Anyway, I had a great week as far as book-acquiring goes. Here's what I scored this week:

So, that's my haul. :) How about you? What did you get this week?
The Week in Review:
- The #TopTen books we missed out on reading in 2014 but still hope to get to soon
- The #BoyNextDoor Blog Tour stops by, featuring a guest post from author Katie Van Ark and a giveaway
- #WoW - This week, we're waiting on Written in the Stars & The Wrath & the Dawn
I started this early this week, but I've been so sleepy lately that I've passed out by 9:30pm every night. :( And ADSOM isn't a book you read in bits and pieces, nor is it one you read when you're not fully alert. I've been looking forward to reading it for so long that I thought I should give it the proper attention so I've been waiting till this weekend to pick it back up. MY BODY IS READY!!!!
I've wanted to read this one for awhile, and I saw it available while perusing the library website for my next listen, so I thought, what better time than now? ;)
