The Weekly Wrap-Up + [sort of] Stacking the Shelves (5)

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews
This will be my last Stacking the Shelves for awhile - not only do I have a ton of NetGalley titles to catch up on but after ALA and the books I received there, I have absolutely no intention of acquiring more soon. Maybe I'll do a monthly StS if I have anything to merit it, but as of now I don't foresee that.

So! Excluding ALA books, this is the only thing I received in the last 2 weeks:
BETA by Rachel Cohn [signed/personalized]
Thank you so much Rachel!

(thank you Harlequin Teen!)
Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett

Since I was gone last week, these are links from the past 2 weeks!

Review: Something Like Normal by Trish Dollar.
This book spoke directly to my personal life and soul. 5+ stars.

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR list
Lots of fun contemporary titles!

Midsummer's Eve Giveaway - now over, and congrats to
Lexie @ The Book Bug!
The List is on the way to her :)

Waiting on Wednesday: Crewel by Gennifer Albin
Sounds amazing, and truthfully I just want that gorgeous cover on my shelf!
(Super excited because I met her and picked up this book at ALA!)

ALA Excitement!
I gave a guide how to spot me + checked in with a small teaser of the books from Day 1

Review: Storybound by Marissa Burt
Middle Grade with a fun twist on storybooks. Can't wait for Book 2! 3.5 Stars

Review: Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer
Took me by surprise how much I loved it! One of the cutest I've read this year. 4.5 Stars

Friday Memes: 2012 Favourites for TGIF and the book characters we want in our birthday cake for FF.
The Magic Mike trailer played while choosing who would jump out of my birthday cake. Influence noticeable.

Coming up next week...

ALA recap, a NetGalley Knock Down challenge, and a review of The Selection!

    I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Beta, Ashley! I love Rachel Cohn's work with David Levithan but haven't read any books authored by her alone. And I am SO waiting on Crewel too, I think the premise sounds fascinating:)

    I'm so excited for the NetGalley knockdown challenge. Then in August I'm going to try to read a ton of arcs! And your beta looks awesome. Signed books make me sooooo freaking happy.

    Confessions of an Angry Girl looks fantastic! I need to check that out. I got Beta at BEA a few weeks back, and it looks amazing.

    Here's a link to the BEA edition of my StS:
