Stacking the Shelves (1)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature over at Tynga's Reviews which allows us all to drool with one another over any books that have been added  to our bookshelves both physically and virtually!

I did have a HUGE two paragraphs written up here, but my Blogger isn't letting me scroll down or anything so I can't see what I'm doing :( I've decided to do my VERY FIRST VLOG! PLEASE excuse the dodgy quality/rambling/not making any sense. I was a little nervous and didn't really know what to say. Also, sorry Brodie for not pronouncing your blog name right, I can pronounce it, just not on camera apparently hahaha!

Let me know what you reckon ;)

What did you add to your shelves this week :)



    Loved your vlog! Though as you know from my comments on Twitter I am SHOCKED that you're able to wear just a singlet where you are! IT'S SO COLD DOWN HERE IN MELBOURNE. I'm completely rugged up right now. Pah.

    EVERNEATH. STARTERS. Gawd I need to get those books. *facepalm* They sound absolutely AMAZING! And YAY for you getting Storm! I already have my copy but I haven't been able to read it yet because it ws actually a BIRTHDAY present and so I can't get it until the end of June. :P

    AWESOME BUYS M'DEAR. Congrats again on the end of your book buying ban! <3

    1. Hahaha aww thankyou :D Hopefully my next one will feature less mumbling and whatnot haha! Well, it was actually fairly warm today and it's freezing outside but warm in my bedroom :D hahahaa!

      YOU NEED TO GET THEM! As I said in the video, they just *feel* so nice, and well, they do sound amazing :)


    2. Damnn you! My heater never seems to be working properly! I mean, yes it IS warmer inside than outside but ITS STILL COLD. *mumble grumble*

      Oh god. Stroking books. I just like to grab books out of my shelves and just stroke them. *sigh*

    3. Hahaha! :D I think it's because my room has been shut up all day so all the heat has stayed locked in :)
      Ohh, yeah I do that too <3 I got lots of strange looks today on the bus because I was just sitting there admiring my new books hahaha!

  2. Good for you for venturing into the vlog world!

    Here's my
    It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
    I'd love to have you stop by!

  3. Yaaay, lovely vlog! I love your accent! :D

    And congrats on winning all these goodies!

  4. Hehehe you are ADORKABLE <3 And SURE you're a little bit weird (we all are, it's cool), but you're the kind of weird that is compelling and you want to see MORE of. Embrace it :D LOL the sad thing is, I'd probably pronounce my blog name wrong if I said it aloud too *does not try for fear of embarrassing self* SO excited to see what you think of Storm!!! <3

    Yay for Everneath and Starters! Everneath is AWESOME, I so loved it. I totally agree about Starters, it's WAY prettier in person than online. I LOVE IT. Sadly I wasn't really into the story and stopped during a book slump, but I really hope you love it!

    Your first attempt at a vlog? SUCCESS! Flaunt your sexy more often ;)

  5. lovly vlog

    amazing books you got there enjoy

  6. I love your vlog!! I really need to read Everneath, I have heard such good things about it.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Oh my God, I completely and utterly LOVE you accent!! It's so so beautiful <3 <3 Taneika, really! You rock! :) ;) And so happy for you that you've won Storm!! :) ;) Enjoy your awesome books! ;) :) <3 <3

  8. This is adorable! I'm so glad you decided to start doing vlogs. I keep meaning to venture into the vlog world as well, but every time I think about doing one I'm usually sleepy eyed with messy hair and no make-up, and I'd like to spare all of you that! Lol.

    By the way, I have to second what Vicky said. I love your voice! I've always wondered what people think of American accents, considering how most of my American friends love to hear people from other countries speak! Lol.

    I need to read Everneath as well. I got a copy awhile back, but just haven't gotten around to it yet!

  9. yay for a first vlog! so exciting :)
    Thanks for joining STS!

  10. Wow. That was an experience. *shock face* ;D AWESOME FIST VLOG! I always wondered what your voice sounded like...and now I know. CRAP. I didn't mean for that to sound so stalkerish.. WHOOPS *runs away*

    Storm is awesome! Beware: Chris is taken by Becca (mwha)

    EVERNEATH. OH MY GOLLYWOGS! I was interested in it but I wasn't overly anticipating it. It was a book I was looking forward to reading, but wasn't in a rush to get to. I received it for review and it was my first ever and it was EXCITING! I struggled in the beginning and was a bit confused with it all and I honestly thought I wouldn't be able to get into it. *sad face* But then something just CLICKED and it turned EPIC. I FREAKING LOVED IT. AMAZING. MIND = BLOWN! Fun :) DO NOT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON JACK. *swoon* He is SO sweet and so beautiful, I was literally squealing. I kid you not. Luckily, the rents were out because I was making these messed up, squealing, squeaking sounds. -__- bahaaha!

    Looking forward to your next vlog so I can see your pretty face again! <33 You = adorable! *huggles*

  11. AWESOME first vlog! Your accent is SO lovely. :)

    Starters was a really really great read. Hope you enjoy everything! :)

    Happy reading!

  12. Hi Taneika! It's my first time here, but I would say you did well with your vlog. But I think most Americans are going to be a little entranced with your accent, so it's hard to go wrong ;)

    I listened to Everneath and I was completely sucked in. Have yet to write my review but it's on the list... I can't wait to hear what you think!

  13. I highly recommend Storm and Everneath! You should love those! Some of my favorites I've read lately.

    Hooray for winning Storm and yay for no more book ban! I actually dislike the cover of Starters but it's so nice to see how much you love it!
