THE WEEKLY REWIND is a weekly post in which I recap the bookish awesomeness from the past week, and post a book haul. Warning: I tend to ramble in my vlogs. Sometimes I get excited about things and I flail. Enjoy.

Help me out, guys! I'm trying to decide what to read over the holidays. Here's your chance to tell me what to read.

Which books should I read?

 free polls 

A few days ago, I bought tickets for Three Days Grace, Shinedown and P.O.D. I'm a little obsessed with Three Days Grace right now. Here's my current favorite from them.

Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment, and I'll come check out your blog. Have a great week!


  1. OMG! How am I supposed to help you choose a book when I want you to read almost all of those!!! LOL You added more in there. When I voted earlier in the week I voted for Flat-Out Love. I haven't had a chance to read most of the other ones even though I really want too! I read Lengths too and it was pretty good. I just got Tidal as well and I can't wait to read that one. In Honor looks cute too. Love road trip books. I think I'll start Eve when the last book comes out. They sounded like they were a bit cliffhangery. Happy Reading & Happy Holidays!!!!

  2. In Honour was received with an enormous amount of glowing reviews, I hope you and I both like it, too. :) All the Broken Pieces sounds quite intriguing! Awesome haul and I hope you enjoy!

  3. OMG! Great Haul this week!! Cannot wait for Up to Me! Can you?

  4. I loved In Honor! Lots of great books this week! No clue which books you should read, sorry I cant help you there! I keep hearing good things about so many of them!
    The concert sounds fun!

  5. I can't wait for the sequel to Fallen to Far, I finished reading it a few days ago and loved it!

    Merry Christmas, Andrea! <3

  6. Oh wow Andrea you have one heck of an awesome haul! Where do I even begin? Yay for Kiss Me Again, Fallen to Far and Dizzy, they're three books I can't wait to read! I've also had In Honor for ages, I think I need to get to that soon! I hope you enjoy all your reads! :)

  7. I don't even know where to start!!! You just got so much awesome I am exploding with excitement for you. And OMG that concert is going to freaking rock! I love Three Days Grace too!!! Hope you enjoy all of your books and Happy Holidays to you and your family!!!

  8. Love your haul! I want Charade in paperback, it was so freaking great, I can't even begin with how amazing it was and I'm so glad you loved this as well:) as for the new reads, umm.. I'm looking forward to reading Fallen Too Far and Falling. And abuĆ³ut your poll, Slammed is probably one of the best books I've read this year. Thoughtless was actually pretty great, but Kiera kind of got on my nerves, but KELLAN!!! KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE HIM ANDREA, I JUST KNOW IT!!! and I'm planning on reading Flat-Out Love during the holidays, because I have tha paperback and I can't wait to devour this baby:) Happy reading and happy holidays, Andrea!! <3

  9. Ahhhh so many books. I am so curious about The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden. It just sounds like a good book and one I will devour. I got Eve too and I can't wait to start. I have heard such good things. I have heard good things about Fallen Too Far so that's another one I'm excited for. Great haul and Happy Reading! Hope you enjoy th holidays!

  10. Incredible haul! I got Fallen too far this week too and I read it last night. Damn it was good but the ending was brutal.

    Enjoy all your treasures.


  11. Aww, sweety Such awesome books!!! I just purchased a bunch of e-books too, I really need to buy Alice Clayton's Redheaded series!

    I already entered for the poll, and tried to be sneaky and enter more books, but it won't let me :/ :D But, I know you'll LOVE, Love

    and On Dublin Street
    They were great!

    Merry Christmas, and I'm so happy you won my giveaway, and your getting All The Broken Pieces signed--Awesome!

    Oh, and I can't wait to see your review for Hopeless-- I just bought it last week--and I've seen some awesome reviews!

  12. ALL the books!! lol

    I have to go investigate of few of them.

    Have a very Merry Christmas Andrea! xoxo

    (I picked The Sea of Tranquility)

  13. I love Three Days Grace! I've seen them I believe 4 times in concert, they're great live. My step-son is going to see them with Shinedown & POD here in Moline, IL when they're here.

  14. I read The Secret of Ella and Micha when it came out, and waiting around for the second in the series, I saw she came out with The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden - which I bought immediately. I hope you like it, I definitely enjoy her writing.

  15. You will have a happy holiday season with all these great books. You neeeed to try The Sea of Tranquility. My God. Best book of 2012.

  16. Taming Her Forbidden Earl looks like my kind of read. I can't wait to see what you are going to do with the Epic Reads event. I liked Eve, although her character was annoying at times. The end was such a show of unselfish love. Awesome!

  17. The Redhead Series is funny and sexy! I want to read In Honor and Who I Kissed. Maybe I can borrow when you're done. :) We do have a lot of the same books. I really want you to read Thoughtless. And well a bunch of others on that list too.

  18. Great book haul! I hope you enjoy them. I had a hard time choosing which book to vote for in your poll. You have so many great ones on your list. Hope you enjoy them.

  19. An awesome haul Andrea! I recently read and really enjoyed Charade & I can't wait to get started on Tidal & Fallen Too Far.

    The Sea of Tranquility is a 'must read' definitely one of my faves.

    Happy holidays Andrea <3

  20. OMG, that is an impossible list to choose from!
    My top picks are both Jessica Sorensen books, Avoiding Commitment is frustrating and I wasn't sure if I loved or hate the book most of the time but I ended up loving it. You know me, I love messed up characters :)
    I really want to know what you think of Captive in the Dark! I really liked Lengths, and Slammed is a MUST!
    I love Jolene Perry books, Falling was awesome.
    And yay! you bought Callie and Kayden! I think your last comment to me said you were reading it, hope you liked it :)
    Hope you and your family had an awesome Christmas!

  21. Great haul, hun! I love listening to your accent :)

    I read Wallbanger this week and deinfitley would like to read Alice's previous books!

    I liked In Honor but not as much as most readers. I'm excited for Who I Kissed, too, I hope you love it! I really liked Eve and Once, can't wait for the third book!

    And now I want to read All the Broken Pieces since you love it so much!

  22. I really want to get into the Nyrae Dawn books, I hear such good things about them. I WANTED to love the one Abbi Glines book I tried, but unfortunately it was a DNF for me. Our contemporary streak is over! *sobs*
