Stacking the Shelves #69 (August Book Haul - Part 1)

I cannot believe that summer is almost over for us!
I know that a lot of you have gone back to school already, or are just about too - we still have about 3 weeks left before school starts, so we are trying to fit in as much playtime and reading-time as we can until then! And somewhere in between all that, I must gather up all my courage and take oldest boy to go buy his sneakers and back-to-school clothes and supplies - he's 10 going on 16, so difficult! lol

Lots of stuff going on the blog lately - reviews, cover reveals, unique blog tours!
In just a few hours, my post for the most cleverest blog tour I have ever participated in will be up! Please check it out :) This book is SO amazing, all contemporary lovers should definitely check it out!!!

My apologies! I forgot to take a pic of my actual book haul, ooops!
