The Weekly-Wrap Up (28): I'm really abusing 'weekly' at this point.

Yes, I am posting this on a Tuesday. Yes, I'm aware this isn't quite a "weekly" thing right now. And yes, I know I'm severely behind on everything to do with this blog. But I wanted to share all the awesome that's come through my house lately!
I have plenty of excuses for you, but nothing new. Work, trying to get my life in shape, a new boy that's making me all fluttery and in denial, and I'm gearing up for summer. I'm sad to say I will not be at ALA this year, travel plans and companions fell through :( Super bummed, but will definitely be at next year's!

In case you missed it...

Seeing as how the last time I did a wrap-up was the beginning of MAY, this seems like a lot - but keep in mind this was for 5 weeks! I find it fascinating to see how many books enter my house in a month...

    Um, I don't even know where to begin! SO MUCH awesomeness all in one post. I've heard only stunning things about The Program thus far, so I'm super excited to get my hands on a copy of that one. Same goes for The Distance Between Us! I'm also dying for Where the Starts Still Shine- I'm totally in love with that cover as well. Also, it seems like you get a lot of love from Around the World ARC Tours! I've been meaning to sign up, but am unsure if I can handle it when school starts up... Nonetheless, I'm really curious to see what you think about Chaos of the Stars.

    Lovely haul, and happy reading! <3

    WOW!!! I'm going to read A Really Awesome Mess too. And I NEED to read Mara Dyer #2 like pronto! I read the first one a while ago and it's starting to bother me that I haven't read it yet. Where the Stars Still Shine looks really good as does The Book of Broken Hearts. And I am obsessed with the new cover of Smart Girls... so pretty!!
