This Week At Midnight (47)


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It gives us a chance to share with readers what we bought, borrowed, swapped, won or got for review each week.

Weekly Shenanigans

What happened this week? I feel like the week kind of flew by. Maybe that is because we had a lovely (sarcasm) snow storm on Monday. I have no idea, but I did not get much done at all. I read one amazing book- 21936988 (1). Usually I’d be annoyed that I only read one book, but if you are going to only read one, this would be the one to read. My goodness, this book was fabulous! I am trying to form some coherent thoughts to write a review, but so far it hasn’t gone well. Just read it, okay?

On the Blog:

There is still a day or two left to enter your links for the January Discussion Challenge link up (and to enter the giveaway!) and of course, lots of time left for February’s! And you can still fill out the ridiculous blogging questionnaire here!

Fun in the Blogosphere:

(YES I am finally doing this! I cannot promise that I’ve included everything I wanted to this week, because I just decided to do this 49 minutes before the post goes up…)

This is only a small selection of the awesome posts I’ve encountered this week but… I only have like 14 minutes left. More next week, promise!

Up Next:

I am going to post my review of The Sin Eater’s Daughter on Monday, so that I do not forget any of the amazingness. Other than that, I guess you know as much as I do! But you know, the usual. And in about 10 days, I will unveil the first batch of results from the survey!

How was your week? Anything fun happen? New books? New adventures? Do tell!

    Great haul! I’m hoping to read The Sin Eater’s Daughter this week as I’ve been looking forward to it for a long time! Oooh, and I got The Mermaid’s Sister this week too, mostly because I loved the cover but of course completely forgot all about it until I saw your post.

    Enjoy your new books and happy reading 🙂

    • Oh, I am glad to hear this! I have heard good things about Gates of Thread and Stone, and I am extra intrigued because the covers are SO different, which means a LOT probably happened!

  2. Oooh! I need to get me a copy of Die Once More – I forgot that was out already! I love the Die for Me series! Lots of great books this week!

  3. Great haul! You won Twist! Awesome! Scripted sounds really good, I need to start reading itI’m so excited to read The Sin Eater’s Daughter, I’m looking forward to hearing what you’re thoughts on it. I would have started reading it already, but I’m in the middle of too many books at the moment. I need to finish some things first. I wasn’t even aware that Die Once More was available, thanks for the heads up. Of course I bought too many books this week, what else is new. Now I need to find the time to read everything! Enjoy your weekend and happy reading!

    • Yes, I was SO excited to win Twist, since I had just finished (and loved!) Loop! The Sin Eater’s Daughter was just amazing. I loved it so, so much. And I probably would have forgotten about Die Once More too, except I’d pre ordered it 😉 And thank you, I hope you have a great week too!

  4. Nice haul! I am super intrigued by the cover of Hit so I’m definitely checking that one out 🙂 I’ve been hearing so much love for the Sin Eater’s Daughter so I think I should put it on my to-buy list and I’ll definitely check out your review. Hope you have a great week and enjoy your new books!

    • The cover of Hit is AMAZING! There was a different cover a few months ago when I’d had it as a WoW, but this one is epically better (one of the few times that happens, no?) And YES, buy The Sin Eater’s Daughter! The Kindle version is on sale for $2.99 (well, it was as of a few days ago!) so definitely grab iT! Hope you have a great week too 🙂

  5. I’m looking forward to that review, Sin Eater’s Daughter is on my to-read list and it sounds good. Argh, I keep meaning to share links of posts I like, but somehow I always forget or don’t have enough links! I love it when other people have them though, so yay!

    I didn’t get ANY new books this week because apparently I “should be reading the books I already have” (roommate quote). Which, I figure, is a legitimate sentiment since there are like twenty of them. I’ll just keep adding books to my amazon cart to stare at them wistfully until I can hit that buy button again. 😀

    • I always forget too! This week, I HAD to share a few posts, so it worked out as a good week to start it! I am going to try to email links to myself or something during the course of the week, maybe that’ll help?

      And I am impressed! I never just “read the books I already have”, so good for you! My Amazon cart is overflowing too 😉

  6. I just read Loop a couple weeks ago and am thrilled I was able to get a copy of Twist from NetGalley! I can’t wait to read it. I’m definitely keeping my eye on Sin Eater’s Daughter. It doesn’t sound like my usual type of read, but the cover keeps drawing me in!

    Have a great week!

  7. Thanks for linking to my post! It has been so interesting to hear everyone’s opinion on how they deal with review requests.

    The sin eaters daughter sounds interesting, I am glad you enjoyed it. I read a great review of it a while ago.

    I hope you have a great weeek and enjoy your new books!

  8. Looks like you’ve had a good week as far as receiving books good. I only read one book myself but like you I didn’t mind because the book was mind blowing.
    The Sin Eaters Daughter is a good book, not what I expected but still really good.

    Happy reading for the week ahead 🙂
