Stacking The Shelves (76) | Book Haul & Weekly Wrap Up

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

So, my last book haul post that I made was in May you guys. MAY. Here are some things I did in that time:

  • I got promoted, yay promotions!
  • I went to Disneyworld.
  • I went whitewater rafting and jumped off a cliff.
  • Visited a corn maze and was not amused.
  • Went to New York Comic Con and saw all the cosplay.

I also got a TON of books, but these books in this haul video are not the sum total of all the books received in that time, ain’t nobody got time for that. Below are the books in my haul video. PS if you really and truly want to know what books come in my mail, be my Instagram friend. That is the best way to keep up to date with me.

  1. Okay, wow 😀 You have done so many exciting things. <3 I'm jealous, lol 🙂 So happy for you. Sounds awesome 🙂 (I was at Disney World once, it was pretty awesome. <3 Yet too hot in the middle of July. Ugh.) And yay for getting so many books in the mail too 😀 Happy reading. <3

    • Hah, yeah I guess I was making up for lost time by having such a busy go of it.

      Disney is the best! It was pretty hot in September too. At one point I left my hair tie in the room and it was a struggle because we could not find hair ties in the park, so I obtained a rubber band from a cast member.

      I feel so fortunate to be on the receiving end of these books.

      Happy reading to you too!
