Stacking the Shelves #126 & 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.


Bought: 
So the reason I have it turned backwards is when USPS bought my package to the door, it was raining. Instead of putting it on the right side of my door (which is covered by the patio of the upstairs apartment, they put it on the left side.... Which is uncovered and right next to a freakin drain output -__- Now the package clearly says HANDLE WITH CARE and you let it get completely soaked smh Thank God for the bubble wrap. It only had small water marks on the back of it! 
These are what I bought at the RT Convention!

Overruled by Emma Chase 
(Thanks to @cupcakegirly for letting me know about this series! (I saw she had reviewed it and I decided it was something I needed to read lol) 
(Have you SEEN the cover under the flap, first press pages, and cover for this books?! HOLY CRAP! I NEEDED it on my shelf! 
Caged in Winter by Brighton Walsh
(A blogger I trust with my NA's... Well anything swoony, Christina, read and reviewed this and it was a friend of hers, so I decided to give it a shot!) 

Won: 

I was lucky enough to "win" and "trade so many things I haven't yet read or own but wanted different copies of! So thankful for those that were willing to trade. Here's those in order:
Time After Time & Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone (UK Editions) 
Dumplin' by Julie Murphy (ARC)
(Funny story about this one.... So in my Epic Reads tote I got a lot of books I already owned or already read and I was a little bummed... But there were people around trading and so I decided to give it a try. I had one of the most coveted ARC's of Ice Like Fire in my bag and I wasn't giving it away for anything else other than Dumplin', another coveted ARC. But I DNF'd Snow Like Ashes so I was looking to give it away. After 45 minutes I found this dude that didn't really want it, but was dying for Ice Like Fire so we switched! I about DIED!)
Trouble From the Start by Rachel Hawthorne (PB)
Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker (HC)
The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent (HC)
Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan (ARC)
The Shadow Prince by Bree Despain (PB)
Everneath by Brodi Ashton
(So glad to have gotten this one. The actual copy I have I bought from Amazon Marketplace... When I purchased it, they "forgot" to mention that it was library binded -__- So yeah I'm irritated everytime I think about it smh But now if anyone still wants it, you're welcome to take it! Just let me know! First come first serve!)
Don't Fail Me Now by Una LaMarche (ARC)
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh (ARC)


(Don't mind my mismatched socks smh lol)

But all of those totes I won and those buttons are swag I got today. 
As for the book thing on the right, there were people playing a scavenger hunt game in line before the event started. She said in order to win we had to find something in our bags. She said "Who has a library card?" I have at least three in my wallet, but while everyone was looking through their bags for their wallet, I asked if my bag counted... She said yes and I won a signature notebook! I got so many signatures signed from people I own e-books from so I'm very happy. I'm starting to wonder what in the world I would've done if I hadn't won it lol 

Pics and a recap of the actual authors and the signing will be up tomorrow under my Beyond the Book post! 

Weekly Wrap-Up

What went on at your blog this week?!

And just to put this out there, I am NOT trying to be a braggy pants. I'm just really happy that I got to go. I can't afford BEA, so I thought this may be just as exciting! Please don't think I was being braggy in any way!
