The Weekly Wrap-Up + Stacking the Shelves (8)

If you can't tell, posts kind of dropped off at the end of last week - to make a long dragged out story short, I learned of, applied for, interviewed at, and got a job in the span of a week. Tuesday is my first day so as I settle into a new routine posting will be more sporadic than usual :( I still have a lot of scheduled content to come though, and I actually think I'll be able to get a routine of reading other blogs down so I'll still be here!

Review: Don't You Wish by Roxanne St. Clair
Wasn't a fan of the main character, but still had some great, surprising elements. 3 Stars

Top Ten Characters I'd Switch Places With For 24 Hours
Church the Cat, Godfrey Gao, and Assassin Celeana make an appearance.

Tune In Tuesday: Teen Years
My favourite pop songs! *NSYNC comes in twice. It had to be done.

Summer Giveaway Hop!
You can win any of the books pictured below! Still time to enter! (US only, ends 8/7)

Want to read ORIGIN by Jessica Khoury or RIFT by Andrea Cremer?
I'm lending them out! Just ask me!

Coming next week...
A Blog Tour stop for House of Shadows by Rachel Numeier (with a giveaway!) and a review of One Moment by Kristina McBride!

I'll also finally put up my Follower Appreciation giveaway...and as a hint of one of the prizes...

I was chatting with Cindy Pon at an event this week and she couldn't recommend this enough.

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
I'm supposed to be on a ban, but when I heard this was on auto-approve I was just too curious to pass it up!
(have you read Jen's review? I'm so much more curious after reading it!)
