Weekly Recap #40 + Stacking The Shelves #30 + Bout of Books

So, technically the first day of the second week of the year. How exciting, right? I think so anyway. Maybe. Anyway, did anyone do anything fun/cool for New Year’s Eve? I just finished up Jessica Jones, which I liked, but wasn’t super super impressed with, but it was still good. Then I watched High School Musical because obvs, the movie begins on New Year’s Eve, so that was good. I haven’t seen that movie in so many years. Possibly not since the year it came out? No lie.

I posted a bit more than usual this week.

~Here’s What I Posted~

Favorite Albums of 2015

Favorite Covers of 2015

December Recap of ’15

Yearly Recap + Looking Forward to 2016

End of Year Survey

So, a ton of year-end posts there, that’s fun.

I’m excited that the two church related groups I’m in are both starting back up this week. I’ve missed that. A little.


~Reading Progress~

I finished The Love That Split The World yesterday, which was really good. I also progressed to 20% in Firsts, so hopefully I’ll finish that this week.

~Stacking The Shelves~

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme created and hosted at Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers can link up their book hauls for the week.

I received some books this week from Book Outlet! I bought them on the day after Christmas and got them just a week later, which I thought was super impressive and fast! Only seven days.

Forgive Me Leonard Peacock Reality Boy Faking Normal A Midsummer's Nightmare

The first two are ones I’ve been wanting to read for a while, I’d actually started FMLM a long time ago, but stopped because I couldn’t get into it. I want to give it another try though. I was so happy to see these on Book Outlet, when I could actually buy them. I read Faking Normal and A Midsummer’s Nightmare and wanted final copies. My review on A Midsummer’s Nightmare.

Before I forget…

~Bout of Books Sign Up~

I’m going to be participating in Bout of Books again and I am so excited! It starts tomorrow and ends on the 10th. Here is a tentative list of books I hope to read by then:

-Review Copies-

Sanctuary Bay The Year We Fell Apart My True Love Gave To Me Anthology

-For Fun-

Forgive Me Leonard Peacock The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly Cracked Up To Be

This makes for a total of 996 pages ‘for review’ and 887 pages ‘for fun’. Lol at reading all those hard to swallow books for fun.

So I’ll have to read 269 pages a day, which basically means reading Forgive Me Leonard Peacock and Cracked Up To Be in one day. 😉 I’ll add this to an official page hopefully tomorrow.  I did pretty good last year, reading three and a half books, but I could do better this year.

How has everyone’s first three/four days of the New Year been? 🙂 Have you already read anything great? Are you participating in Bout of Books? Do you have any specific books you want to read?

    I’ve been the same with posts, it feels like endless wrap ups! Your book haul looks so exciting 🙂 I only just heard of bout of books the other day, so I’m thinking maybe next year instead? Good luck with it! 🙂

    Visiting from Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews.

    I’m not too familiar with most of the books you have presented here. But I DO understand the Bout of Books. :O) Best of luck!


  • Kaitlin @ Reading is My Treasure

    !!!! Five of my favorite books are in this post and I almost don’t even know where to begin because it’s so exciting! Obviously, Faking Normal is one of them. Reality Boy is fantastic!! And oh my, you love A Midsummer’s Nightmare too?? I adore that one. I don’t remember much about Cracked Up to Be (even though I love it so much), but I do remember that the character isn’t the easiest to love. I loved her, though! I’m kinda nervous about finding out what you think of it because I really want you to love it. The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly was one of my favorite books of 2015! It’s fantastic!

    I hope you enjoy your new haul! Reality Boy was really interesting, and I love love love Faking Normal. Plus My True Love Gave to Me has some truly adorable stories. ❤
