These are the books that I have gotten this week for review. I’ve been trying to cut down on my review books so that I might, maybe, have a chance at getting through my TBR pile.  

And I was doing good, with just 2 books this week but then those two beauties showed up in my mailbox and an author I have worked with in the past sent me her new book, and well…you know the rest. bluedivider 

Books I got this week:
*Thank you so much to Bloomsbury & Walker Books, Random House & Delacorte Press, Entangled Teen, Nadia Simonenko, and Holly Lauren for these awesome books! *

This Week I have: 
I got the opportunity to see the movie That Awkward Moment at an early screening on Tuesday night this week. I thought it was really cute and super funny. I thought all three of the main guys did a great job, and they all meshed so well together.
The movie came out in theaters on Friday, so if you like romantic comedies(this had a very new adult feel to it), then you should check it out!
A couple of people have asked how I got to see the movie before it came out.
I go on this site called Gofobo. And you just sign up to see movies before they come out, and you get lots of passes to see movies. I think they use a raffle, but I have gotten almost all of the movies that I have signed up for. It’s super easy and completely free.

And I have two great giveaways coming up next week so be sure to stop by the blog

Leave me links to your Sunday posts/stacking the shelves in the comments and I will check them out 🙂

    That Awkward Moment sounds like a fun movie, glad you enjoyed it. I hear you about cutting back on ARC’s ..I am currently only seeking out ones I want to read arc or not..but then those publishers and authors dangle shiny covers in front of me..and gads! LOL Have a lovely week my friend!

    I wish I could stop taking review copies! But between Edelweiss and it’s shiny green button and silly new adult books that taste like candy to me, I can’t stop!!! I’m trying to get to my TBR, too!!!! And now my tried and true authors are coming out with books in their long standing series so I’m totally screwed…. such problems we have, huh?!?! 😀

    You did get some pretty books, though!!!! Enjoy!! My Sunday Post

    Gosh, I hear you about trying to cut back on the ARCs! I’m trying to do that, too, and only requesting books I know I would read anyway. But I’ve still got a fair few to get through first… And those covers would be hard to resist if they showed up in my mailbox, too!

    Open Road Summer! Gah, that book looks SO good. I keep seeing previews for That Awkward Moment and it looks so cute, I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’ll have to see if I can find someone to go see it with me. Have a great week, Michelle!
