Before I begin I want to wish Tynga an amazing birthday! Happy birthday, T!
Hello, everyone! It’s been a super long time since I’ve done one of these so I’m excited to be back. There’s a very special reason that I am doing this week’s STS and that’s because I visited BEA last weekend! Yes, you heard right! It was everything I hoped it would be and more and my haul is mouth-watering. I’m exercising as much restraint as I can to finish my current for-review books, but the second they’re done I am diving into this pile and never turning back!
Below is a vlog of me quickly showing you my books, their covers, whether they’re signed, etc. If you want a more detailed and entertaining vlog showcasing my friend, Gillian, who was kind enough to let me crash at her apartment for three nights, than go to my personal blog and check it out here.
 
 
Everything with an asterisk is signed! In no particular order, the haul that is making me go nuts for eternity! ❤

Giveaway
While at BEA I helped an adult blogger with her suitcase because she was struggling to put her books away. She repaid me by stuffing some random young adult books into my suitcase without showing me what they were. When I opened up my suitcase I learned that I got an extra copy of COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN. So, I’ve decided to give it away! You can enter to win it here! Sorry, but it’s US only. I’m a broke-preparing-for-college girl!

Hey, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done a stacking the shelves post. The first minute of the vlog below is basically me explaining where I am going to college (yay!) and the reasoning behind the recruitment notice that Tynga has posted in regards to me last week. I hope you watch to understand, then keep watching to see the awesome goodies I’ve gathered in the last month.

If anyone is interested, I have some pictures from my recent trip to Italy. If not, scroll all the way down and add your STS post to the linky below! My parents sent me here with my school as a graduation gift. I qualified for the trip because I can read, speak, and write fluent Italian, I’m President of my school’s Italian Club, and I am a proud member of the Italian National Honor Society.
So, we took a connecting flight from the US to Switzerland, than Switzerland to Venice, Italy. We saw the Swiss Alps while we were in the air. Is it not gorgeous?
We landed in Venice and immediately went to the mask factory where we got to help with making some. They bring out my eyes… haha
We went to Florence the next day, where we stopped at a bridge to overlook the city. It was sort of freezing that morning.
And some of us (me included) also illegally test drove Ferrari’s.
We continued on to a walking tour of Florence, where we got to see some amazing sites. As an insane literature buff, I freaked out when we arrived at Dante’s Church, despite the fact that he is buried in Ravenna due to his political exile.
With some extra time on our hands, my friends and I decided to climb the Duomo. See that? Yeah, we did that sprinting in, like, 15 minutes. Nuts.
But it was all worth it when we got to see all of Florence in the end. Look at this view! It’s something I’ll remember for the rest of my life.
The next day we headed to Sorento, but we stopped at Orvietto on the way. Orvietto is a small, medieval town in the mountains. It shows us the Italian countryside rich with history instead of the big cities and tourist attractions.
And this was the view from my hotel room in Sorento. Seriously. No words.
While we were in Sorento, we spent a day in Capri. The inhabitants of this island are the luckiest people in the world. We took a boat tour of the entire island, so this is a view of the island while I was at its highest point and while I was touring it on a boat.
While in Sorento, we also went to Pompeii. It was my second time there and it only gets better and better. Ciao, ciao Mt. Vesuvio!
Then, of course, we ended this beautiful trip in Roma….where we stayed in a pink hotel that matched my best friends pants.
The Colosseum is always beautiful to me. Just think of all the history it holds.

While in Rome we also visited the Vatican. It was my second time there as well, so I decided not to bring my camera because of security and the fact that I nabbed all my pictures the first time around. The Vatican can’t change much, you know? But it’ll always take your breath away. With that being said, I still had to whip out my cell to take a picture of the Spanish guards. Their uniforms ❤

 
La nostra ultima cena consisteva di illimitata pasta, vino, e fragole tiramisù.
(Our last dinner consisted of unlimited pasta, wine, and strabwerry tiramisu. It is perhaps the best desert I have ever had).

And before we left my best friend, Nikki, and myself grabbed a picture of us on the Spanish Steps with a wedding in the background (though the tourists behind us accidentally blocked it out. Oh well) And my little tour of Italy for everyone here e’ finito!

So what did everyone else add to their shelves this week?

Hey, everyone! I had an awesome time doing this week’s STS post because I was able to do it with my best bloggy friend, Nicole! The video of us making fools of ourselves is so long (only 16 minutes!) that it couldn’t upload to youtube and blogger can’t support it as a file from my desktop, so unfortunately I just have pictures since I don’t have enough time to get it to youtube. 😦 Bummer, right?

This week I was able to get my last few Hanukkah books, so it was pretty awesome and full of contemporaries. I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas!
