Stacking the Shelves (#228)


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, in which bloggers share the books and swag they've received in the past week!


So, what did I get in the week of Sunday, April 30th to Saturday, May 6th?

In the mail:

Surprise, I'm not going home this weekend! Finals weeks are upon me! Mega haul coming your way next weekend - apparently I got a lot of packages this week. I know for sure that I got this one from Disney-Hyperion...

17 dayssss! I have so much that needs to be done before graduation. Including decorating my graduation cap! Did anyone else decorate their undergraduate graduation cap? Any suggestions for materials or paint?

  2. Yay!! Congrats on almost being done!! That's awesome!! Ironically...I missed my undergraduate graduation. Instead I went to RT that year! LOL! So I don't know of any good decorating materials. :(

    Nice new read though! Curious about this one since you mention it's from Disney and it looks very fairy tale like! Hope you enjoy the read!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Good luck with your finals! My friend got into Johns Hopkins for the upcoming fall as a freshman and she cannot wait. That is where you go, right? I'm not just making that up? XD

    I haven't heard of Rosemarked, but even the non-final cover looks nice!

    1. Same! Well, I loved her debut. Daughter of Dusk wasn't as great for me. But I'm excited for this new book!

      Thank you, Aneta!

  6. How exciting! I don't remember the cap decorating thing back when I graduated (1994), but I have seen some amazing caps lately. Enjoy every second of your accomplishment!

    1. Right? I love it! Thank you, Lenore! I'm fairly green when it comes to cap decorating. I'm worried that it will be a disaster!
