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!  =)
Man, this felt like a week of Thursdays. Except for Monday. Monday definitely felt like a Monday. :P

It's always this way before a three-day weekend, though. Except, I plan on going into the office on Monday while nobody -- I say that, but I already know that the rest of the accounting department will be there -- is there to bother me so I can get caught up and start the year off right. That's the plan, anyway. I'd much rather send the kid to daycare and spend the day reading, lol.

Anyway, here's what I scored this week...

From Publishers:

Burn (Four Sisters, #2)Siren's Song (Storm Siren, #3)

Thanks to Harper for the finished copy of Burn. I liked the first book but I don't know if it was enough to want to read this companion. If anyone would like this book, let me know and we can work something out. ;) Also from Harper/Thomas Nelson via Netgalley, I got Siren's Song, which I've been eagerly anticipating. I am beyond excited to read this final book in the Storm Siren trilogy. I think I might want to re-read the previous books, though...just because. :)


Thanks to the amazing, wonderful, and too generous Jessica at Jessabella Reads for trading me her ARC of Vicious by Victoria Schwab. I was beginning to wonder if they really even existed. :P Now I'm on the hunt for an ARC of The Near Witch, which I've been told does exist, as well. :D My collection is nearly complete!!!

These beauties are the result of a trade orchestrated by the lovely Lisa and Crystal. I read a galley of The Mirror King already, but I wanted a copy of the ARC for my Jodi Meadows collection. I only recently read/listened to the Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima but it was an instant favorite, so I really, really wanted to read Flamecaster since it's set in the same world. Thanks again, ladies!

Procured From the Library:

See How They Run (Embassy Row, #2)Traveler (Seeker, #2)Untamed (Splintered, #3.5)Carry OnTonight the Streets Are Ours

I just love when my library does a mass upload and I log in right after they've done it! =D

So, that's my haul. =) What fabulous bookmail did you get this week?

Currently Reading:

The Distance from A to ZAfter reading The Year We Fell Apart, I was in the mood for some more contemporary cuteness. I had this for review and have heard it's quite adorable, so I gave in to the pull. =)

Currently Listening:

Carry OnI pre-ordered this and yet I still haven't had time to work it into my actual TBR -- the real one, not the one that I just keep adding to -- so when I saw that my library added the audio, I scooped it up. I was a little hesitant because I was sure it couldn't hold the magic that the snippets in Fangirl did, but I was so wrong. I'm rather enjoying it.

  2. Great haul! Can't wait to read your thoughts on Carry On. Happy reading!

  3. Great books, I have Truthwitch, Savage Song, and Vicious on my TBR pile. Hope you enjoy your reads!!

  4. I read The Distance from A to Z two weeks ago and really enjoyed it. Nice haul this week! Enjoy them all. My STS

  5. Ooh I recently got a copy of Carry On too. I've been hearing really good things about it! However, I've heard quite a few negative things too. It's Rowell though, so I don't see how it can be anything but awesome! I will be looking forward to your thoughts on the Year We Fell Apart. I just finished that one and it wasn't exactly what I expected, but I still enjoyed it.
