Stacking the Shelves #219 & the Weekly Wrap-Up!


This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what all we borrowed, bought, and received for review. It's hosted over at Tynga's Reviews.

TxLA: 

This year was a bit different than the last time I went because this yeaar I got to attend sesssions! I'm so grateful that my branch paid for me to go and learn some new things that I can learn and take with me after graduation! (And hopefully after a promotion lmao) 
While I wasn't in sessions tho, I was able to snag some really awesome stuff! Here's what I got that I'll be reading before I let it loose to my teens! (In other words, the ones I'm most excited about!!!) 


The Weekly Wrap-Up!

Wednesday 04/12/17: Waiting on Wednesday: The Wicker King by K. Ancrum
Thursday 04/13/2017:  TxLa 2017: Owning your Profession
Friday 04/14/17: Follow Friday: Favorite TV Shows! 

Me on Instagram

A teen I met at TxLA last year. I LOVE her and her family. She loves reading and she's the sweetest, smart girl I know! She is also SO mature. Seeing her again this weekend reminded me why I want to become a librarian. To put that smile we both have on another teen's face when I hand them books or give them recommendations. 


Last year I sneaked and took a picture of Nicola Yoon at BEA. This year I took a picture wth her without having to sneak lol And also I met Heather Demetrios and was able to fangirl about how excited I am for Bad Romance and how much I loved everything else she wrote. 

This was my first time meeting Renee Ahdieh... And let me just tell you, I was NOT prepared for how gorgeous she was in person. I knew she was pretty from pictures, but she really is beautiful! And the awesome book she was signing is pretty beautiful too! Also she was amazed that we lined up at 10 something to get into her line for 12:30!


And lastly, there is Marie Lu! She was super cool and so awesome to meet. She also was amazed that we ran through the floor and jumped in her line as soon as they were open!

What went on at your blog or Instagram this week?
