The Sunday Post #33 + Stacking the Shelves #35

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba over at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This special post will provide a recap for posts that have been written for the week (September 29 - October 5, 2013)

Hey there, you guys! So sorry for the lack of joint reviews and memes lately, but we're busy with finals and requirements as of late.



Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme first initiated by Tynga. This weekly segment will showcase the books/galleys/ARCs we've acquired/purchased/borrowed within the week.

Many thanks to the Harlequin team at NetGalley!

In other exciting news, we got invited to the Bloggers' Forum hosted by National Bookstore, where we had a panel with Melissa dela Cruz, Margaret Stohl, and Alyson Noel. 

We had our books signed (I didn't know where my copy of Beautiful Darkness was, so it wasn't signed. Boo!)


  1. Love signed books :) they brighten the world I think.
    Plan to start reading Siege and Storm next week, the reviews have been impressive.

  2. The Distance Between Us and Camp Boyfriend were both great! Enjoy them and all the rest!
