The Weekend Edition #16

June 15, 2013 weekly memes 55

Stacking the shelves and The Sunday Post
are memes where we share our news from the week and weekly haul.

This week in life and on the blog

I BROKE MY KINDLE and then proceeded to have an epic meltdown (My Twitter followers can attest to that). I sobbed, my mom tried not to laugh (and failed) and I spent a very long three days waiting for a replacement. I do have to give props to Amazon, It was out of warranty but they offered me an upgrade to a refurbished paperwhite for €50 off and my mom bought me a new cover (so I don’t break the screen this time) so it had a happy ending! 🙂

Hello there you handsome devil!!!

Blog posts this week

It was a week of disappointments review-wise for me! (The Art of Love was the exception)


This week I got…


From Publishers


I got this in a First Reads giveaway! I love the ARC cover! It’s awesome

From NetGalley


I love this cover, the colours are awesome.


Trish over at Between the Lines told me about this! Mallory Towers meets Gossip Girl Meets Twin Peaks which means Cha Ching for Danielle!!

I love Harper Collins’ new romance imprint “Impulse” so delighted to get these. Nice, quick, summery reads to forget your troubles!

From Edelweiss




New April Showers Cover

Nice to see some UK NA!


I’ve seen this on a couple of my fave bloggers’ sites so had to get it!


Have heard good things about this one!


Still have to read After Math but couldn’t resist!


Despite the steamy cover this was actually a really sweet, short little story…and yeah it was HOT!

That’s it!

What did everyone else get?

    *Whispers* My precious… Lol I am such a physical book lover, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to let myself get an e-reader. Unfortunately, slowly but surely I’m starting to crumble… They just look so nice! Lol happy reading!

      I know, I do love my paperbacks but it is so handy and this new one is sooo great! I adore it! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! x

    Oh my god! THE SAME THING HAPPENED WITH MY KINDLE! Right down to a bit of a melt down. I have not ordered a new one yet, because I also have a kindle fire, but the paperwhite is appealing to me as a new alternative.

    ALSO! I love the covers of those Harper impulse books. 🙂

    • Danielle

      Ugh, It’s the worse thing ever isn’t it? It was like slow motion NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Thank god you have a back up! Those few days without it were torture! Thanks for stopping by April <3

    YAY for the new kindle! 🙂

    You got a lot of awesome books! Burning looks good. AND Indelible

    Have a good weekend!

    I can imagine if my Kindle broke I’d have a similar meltdown. I had a borderline one when my charge broke. But I’m glad that you got a new one! And you can read in the dark now?!

    Great haul!

    • Danielle

      Thanks Kara! I made sure to buy a reinforced cover for this one! Don’t want to go through that emotional turmoil again! 😉

    I Would have cried too if that happened to my Kindle, but Amazon has great customer service and glad that it worked out for you in the end. Come visit me as well.


  9. Aman

    I’m reading One Tiny Lie right now and now I’m a little sad that you felt it was not as good. I’m in the 15% mark and still keeping my hopes up. Indelible is on my list too, I can’t wait for it to be out! On the Island is my favorite contmep read, I hope you love it! Enjoy your reads. Thanks for visiting 🙂

  10. Alise

    Too bad about you kindle, but at least you got a new toy out of it 😉 I really love amazon. AWESOME books this week, have fun reading them!

  11. Jamie

    You got some great books here by the looks of things. Several of these are on my to-read list. I am sorry about your kindle. It is one of the reasons I am not fond of ebooks (even though I keep getting them) is that if the device goes, it is not a cheap fix. Hope this week of reading is more pleasurable than last week!
    Here are my newest additions from this week.

    • Danielle

      Thanks Jamie! Definitely a less stressful week, I knew that it was fragile but didn’t realise just how fragile! Defo treating the new one with kid gloves!!! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Ashley

    Wow that’s so cool of Amazon! The paperwhite is awesome, I love mine! You can read in the dark *and* in the sunlight. Perfect! I hope you like Indelible. I have my eye on that one!

    Have a great week! 🙂

  13. Sheri @ Tangled Up In Books

    Yay for the new Kindle! I was ready to hunt down DHL and drag them to you by the ear! So many good books! I got Redesigned also (Jessica made me!) and No Strings Attached I wish that would have gone on forever. Sweet and yes….HOT!!!

  14. Jess Hearts Books

    So sorry to hear about your Kindle! I’ve been thinking about upgrading to a Paperwhite for a while now so you’ll have to let me know how you find it! On The Island is additive, really hope you enjoy it!

    • Danielle

      Oh you did too? I’m glad tbh, i was afraid there was something wrong with me. Hopefully her next book will be more like TTB. Thanks for stopping by hon! x

  15. Margaret

    So glad to see you have a new kindle. I broke mine as well and it is just the saddest thing when it happens. *doing the new kindle dance * Yeah to amazon for replacing them LOL! Some awesome books here. Happy reading!

  16. Lisa (Lost in Literature)

    Yayyy!! Congrats on the new Paperwhite! I honestly love mine to pieces and don’t know how I ever lived without it. I hope you love yours just as much as I love mine!! 🙂 Enjoy your goodies this week!

  17. Allura

    I can’t wait to see what you think of April Showers! I’m going to start Ten Tiny Breaths this week because I’ve seen mixed things about it as well as One Tiny Lie so my interest has been piqued! I’m glad you got a new Kindle, I was worried!! 😉 xo

    • Danielle

      Yeah I’ve really enjoyed it. Thank you, I was worried I was going to lose it!! lol Thanks for the emotional support 😉
