Stacking the Shelves (#14)


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, in which bloggers share the books and swag they've received in the past week!

So, what did I get in the week of Sunday, March 24th to Saturday, March 30th?

(all links to Goodreads are provided!)

In the mail:



Special thanks to Stephanie from Read in a Single Sitting - I won those five books from THIS giveaway that she hosted!


An ARC of Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger


Assorted swag from author Demitria Lunetta

From NetGalley:

Dare You To (Pushing the Limits, #2)

Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Oh, and this:


Yeah, you know what that is. My #1 choice. Celebrations are DEFINITELY in order (at home AND on the blog) - once this sinks in.

So, it's safe to say that I had an AWESOME week! How was yours, book lovers? :)

  5. OMGOMGOMG. You got the entire Maiden Lane series! I just love Elizabeth Hoyt's books, did you read The Raven Prince? Edward is just so swoon-worthy! :D<3
    And Touched, I heard it was like Twilight. Hopefully you'll enjoy it.
    You got Dare You To and Let the Sky Fall! I can't wait to read them both myself.
    Thanks for stopping by my STS & enjoy all your lovely books! (:

    1. I KNOW RIGHT?! I have not read any of Hoyt's other books (the only one I had read before I won this giveaway was lord of Darkness, as an eARC). I can't wait to dive into these, and her other books! I haven't heard much about Touched, but I'm excited to read it nonetheless.

      I know! Dare You To and Let the Sky Fall sound amazing - two of most anticipated releases of 2013.

      My pleasure! Thank YOU :D

  8. I just read Let the Sky Fall and really liked the unique nature of it. It was a little mellow for me but still good. I prefer the more mature YA books usually. I hope you like Dare You To. Anxious to see your review on that one:)

  12. Wow! Congratulations! JohnsHopkins! Now, having used up all my exclamation points, you got some good books too. I have read a couple by Elizabeth Hoyt and enjoyed them. I still have my first Shannon Messenger on my stack but I do enjoy her blog. Come see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!
