Weekly Recap (#18) + Bloggiesta Recap + Stacking The Shelves

Posted March 29, 2015 by Amber in Stacking The Shelves, Weekly Recap / 2 Comments

Weekly recap is a pretty self explanatory post. I recap what’s happened in my life, in the blogging world, on my blog and what’s coming up.
Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers can link up and share the books they’ve received over the week.
~My Life~
Life? Stress. Chaos. Drama. I’m ready for April now. 🙂
~Highlights~
  • I attended Paula Stokes Twitter Party for Liars Inc! Co-hosted with Ensconced In Lit. It was fun. I won swag. 😀
  • I found my ipod! It was….um, on the inside zippered pocket of my purse….apparently that was the one place I thought it couldn’t/wouldn’t be. Ha…
  • I received book mail! Which I’ll talk about in STS. 🙂
  • I participated in Bloggiesta, had so much fun with it, learned some great tips, met some great people and I participated in almost every Twitter chat. <3
  • I BOUGHT BOY MEETS WORLD SEASON 2.
  • I went cyber bowling last night. I was awful. But whatever.
  • I discovered #VeryRealisticYA, aka, the best thing ever. Let me also just say I was one of the first to do it after John Hansen did a ton of them. 🙂 (@ABoredAuthor)
  • Dahlia is so kindly giving me an ARC copy of The Wrath and The Dawn and I’m so thrilled.

  1. Really had fun during the Bloggiesta Twitter chats, so need to find some more chats to join. They go by fast, but I had a blast! Congrats on winning swag from the Liars Inc chat! Love swag!

    You did pretty well with your Bloggiesta to-do list! I didn’t get everything on my list done either, but still working on it. My trouble was that I kept adding to my list instead of crossing things off. Oops! 🙂

    Hope you have a great month!
