Stacking the Shelves (#23): The Black Friday Edition

shelf stacking

Meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where I post all the bookish things I’ve received/purchased either physical or e-book.

It’s been a while since my last post for this meme… I’m sorry guys! Hopefully after this semester maybe I can do a catch up post? We will see! I have gotten a lot of books since then, but since I’ve gotten so many, I’m only going to do the ones from the past week or so. I did make a Black Friday Book Outlet order, but that was yesterday and the books haven’t shipped yet. So I will do a haul once I get those.

Black Friday Half Price Books Haul ($35!!!!!)

I also bought another book (which was originally $15.99 there), but it actually wasn’t for me… It’s for my sister for Christmas! So basically her book was free! You had to spend $50 to get $15 off plus for the Black Friday deal, the first 100 people get a tote bag and each person (but one) gets a $5 coupon. The lucky one person gets $100… Sadly I wasn’t that one. But a total of $20 off!? That’s a GREAT deal!

My Book Outlet Order due to anxiety with wisdom teeth removal and school:

10808707_564404836993538_1150899037_n

I can’t remember how much I spent, but it was around $65 I believe. Plus I had one of those spend $35 or more and get $5 off! This was a freaking deal!!!!! Book Outlet is seriously amazing! This is definitely my biggest and most expensive haul from them, and I don’t regret it at all! I REALLY needed this haul… I was so incredibly stressed out from the wisdom teeth removal (which went well, still recovering over 2 weeks later, but getting there!) and just overall stress from school. So it was highly needed!

A summer road trip changes everything in this unforgettable new tale from acclaimed author Katie McGarry

For new high school graduate Echo Emerson, a summer road trip out west with her boyfriend means getting away and forgetting what makes her so… different. It means seeing cool sights while selling her art at galleries along the way. And most of all, it means almost three months alone with Noah Hutchins, the hot, smart, soul-battered guy who’s never judged her. Echo and Noah share everything — except the one thing Echo’s just not ready for.

But when the source of Echo’s constant nightmares comes back into her life, she has to make some tough decisions about what she really wants — even as foster kid Noah’s search for his last remaining relatives forces them both to confront some serious truths about life, love, and themselves.

Now, with one week left before college orientation, jobs and real life, Echo must decide if Noah’s more than the bad-boy fling everyone warned her he’d be. And the last leg of an amazing road trip will turn… seriously epic.

 

I’m so excited, yet so nervous about this book! I know it’s a love story and typically the couples stay together… But that synopsis makes me nervous! SO EXCITED FOR MORE ECHO AND NOAH THOUGH!!! :D :D

Release Day Blitz: Interception by Morgan Black

Purchase on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1xsNlmS

Lena is alone. After having three boys fight for her heart she has royally screwed it all up and is left broken and lost.

Now there is competition. Lena knows what she wants, and she’ll kill Harli to get it.

Wedding bells are ringing and Lena won’t go alone. She’ll have a date. Her date.

That b*tch is going down.

Excerpt

“Get out of my face.” I wanted to spit on her. I knew it would be gross, but I wanted to do that more than anything. Teach her a lesson.

She didn’t move. “Why? Just so you can mess with Blake some more? You know some of us are a little tired of your shit Lena.”

“Back up Harli. I only wanted to talk to Blake. Nothing else.”

She rolled her eyes. “It starts with a conversation. Then it’s always more.”

I swirled the spit in my mouth and swallowed it. She was right. I did want more.

I sat on the sand crying, the black fabric swirling around me like my secrets once had. I thought the truth would set me free, instead it swam around me threatening to drown me with every breath.

Haven’t started the Finnegan Brother series yet? Misconception is available for 99¢!

Purchase on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1prgxgG

The Finnegan brothers are bound to hurt any girl that gets between them. But that doesn’t stop Lena. She loves pain with her pleasure. When things get too hot for her to handle, she does the only thing she can do to protect herself… she runs away.

Three years later, Lena is back in town for her father’s wedding. She prays she can avoid her past, hoping nobody remembers her parents’ messy divorce or how she disappeared. However, as soon as she arrives, she finds she can’t run from her past anymore.

There’s no escaping the Finnegan brothers. Not this time.

Music Mondays (#5): Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire + Luke Bryan

music mondays

Music Monday is a weekly meme started by Athena @Total Book Geek. For the meme, you find a book/scene in a book and match it with a song; and trying to avoid spoilers.

Hey guys! OHH DEAR LORD! My all time favorite new adult/contemporary and my babe- Luke Bryan! IT CAN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT!!!!:D

The instructions are very simple in how you do this meme.. Just choose a book or a scene from a book and match it with a song and explain why you chose the 2!

This week I’m featuring:

IMG_20141024_160237walking disasterWalking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Series: Beautiful #2
Publishing on: April 2nd 2013
Genre: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Pages: 448

Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster. Can you love someone too much? Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder. In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees. Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m matching this beautiful book with Do I by Luke Bryan:

 

I wanna cry… This song just makes me want to cry. I adore this song and have for years! IT’S LUKE BRYAN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!! <333333 But basically this is Travis wanting Abby back after everything that’s going on and her dating Parker. Travis is a one-night-stand, no dating type of guy, but Abby isn’t. She knows all Travis wants is just sex and no relationship, so she goes to second best, Parker… Well, they both know they have feelings for each other.. That much is obvious.. So this song is basically him wanting Abby back. :) Here’s a snip of the lyrics:

Do I turn you on at all when I kiss you baby?
Does the sight of me wanting you drive you crazy?
Do I have your love? Am I still enough?
Tell me, don’t I? Or tell me, do I, baby

What do you guys think? Agree? Disagree? What are some songs you would have chosen? Let’s talk about it down below! :D (or fangirl about the book or Luke Bryan ;) )

See you guys next week!

Bulletproof by Melissa Pearl

Release Day Blitz

November 20, 2014

Bullettproof_Pearl_High (1)

Morgan Pritchett doesn’t need anyone. Strong-willed and confident, she’s the master of organizing and looking after everyone around her. In her mind, she’s bulletproof. But she has one weakness – men. She can’t seem to live without them, yet is unable to find her perfect match. After yet another break up, Morgan promises her sister and best friend that she’ll write off men for the rest of the year. But then she meets Sean Tate.

Sean Tate has worked hard to become a Hollywood actor, scoring minor roles and slowly making a name for himself as an action sidekick. After a chance encounter with the stunning Morgan Pritchett, he decides to take a risk and put his dancing skills to the test by signing on for the lead role in Superstar, a TV musical. He never thought he’d reconnect with the girl who urged him to ignore his manager and be honest with himself, but when Morgan shows up on the set as a production assistant, he realizes he’s found his ultimate weakness — her.

Their passion for dance and music will bring them together, but will their relationship be able to withstand the forces determined to pull them apart? As Morgan comes face to face with her demons and Sean decides just how much he’s willing to risk for love, these two lovers discover something… they’re not as bulletproof as they thought.
