Welcome to my weekly recap where I recap my life, my blog, my reading, my book buying sprees and anything else I think of. 🙂
Let’s see, it’s four days until Christmas and I still have to buy presents! I need to buy for my mom, dad and grandma, I pretty much know what I’m getting all of them, just need to buy it. 🙂 I’m pretty excited. Sort of. Holidays are always a little hectic at home.
I bought my friend a present too! Tasha, the one I went to visit for like two weeks. I got her something for letting me stay there so long, plus when I saw it I thought of her. Haha. I’m also sending her two books. One book is for a movie she liked but hadn’t read the book of and the other is a very similar book. Hint: It was one of my first book reviews.
Anyway, I’m excited to send her those, I’m going to do it tomorrow and hopefully she’ll get it by Christmas, though it’s cutting it close.
In the meantime, I have either received my Kindle or the warranty papers for my Kindle. I’m not sure which it is yet, but my mom wants to wrap it up and put it under the tree. So after thinking about it for a few minutes, I told her to go ahead. 🙂 I have library books I need to finish anyway.

I finished Just Like The Movies by Kelly Fiore! I’ve started Even In Paradise by Chelsey Philpot. I’m on page 136 so far and it’s pretty good. Afterwards I’m going to try to read Far From You by Tess Sharpe, I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson, Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke, and then either Tease by Amanda Maciel or Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, since I already started that one a couple months ago.
~Stacking The Shelves~
Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme created and hosted at Tynga’s Reviews. Every week bloggers can link up and share the books they’ve acquired over the week. Used or new, borrowed or bought, won or gifted, electronic or physical. 🙂 You can join in here.
I’ve been very bad this week. I have bought the following for the Kindle:
Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
The Giver (Giver Quartet Book 1) by Lois Lowry
The Outsiders by SE Hinton
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Staying Strong: 365 Days A Year by Demi Lovato
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Ender’s Game (The Ender Quintet Book 1) by Orson Scott Card
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
On the bright side, I didn’t spend more than $2.99 on any of those. 🙂 Amazon is having some really great Kindle sales this month. I also attempted buying Open Road Summer by Emery Lord but for whatever reason my debit card didn’t want to go through which is really annoying, so I don’t have Open Road Summer. I want to get it while it’s on sale too.
I hadn’t ever heard of Ready Player One or the Ender’s Game series but the futuristic, sci-fi, dystopian settings sounds really interesting! I’ve heard good things about them too so that’s great.
Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke
I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson
Magnolia by Kristi Cook
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
Tease by Amanda Maciel
Famous In Love by Rebecca Serle

“I just think that when guys put themselves out there like that, it’s totally romantic. When a girl does it, she just looks like a stalker.” (Just Like the Movies)
They say you can fall in love at first sight. What about falling into friendship? Can you become BFFs over the course of ten short weeks? (Just Like The Movies)
I was friendly to many, close to few. (Even In Paradise)
