Stacking the Shelves (#15)


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, April 7th to Saturday, April 6th?

(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

Random House was really nice to me this week! These two books are from them!




From NetGalley:

Gold (Bandia, #2)



From Edelweiss:

Not a Drop to Drink


That's it! Not the most exciting week, but it was Spring Break week! I got SO MUCH reading accomplished... and not as much homework and projects and studying for AP exams.

But I'm satisfied. I'll actually have reviews! :D

So, how about you, lovely people! Leave me a link, or tell me what you got this week! :)

  11. I have read a few good reviews of Not A Drop To Drink. I'll be interested to hear what you think.

  12. Alyssa, girl, I am jealous. I'm going to be completely honest here. I seriously am DYING to read Not A Drop To Drink! The cover is gorgeous, the writing seems phenomenal, and the concept is utterly amazing. Not to mention The Beautiful and the Cursed! I mean, it's a GOTHIC novel. Like, how can I NOT want it?!

    And I totally feel for ya' with the AP exams. I've got two in May and I've barely started studying. So nerve wracking, these tests! But at least you had a restful spring break! <3

    Anyways, enjoy your lovely haul. =)

  21. Thanks for checking out my IMM/StS. To answer your comment on there, yep, read Breathless. Loved it, love the whole series. But that's beside the point.

    The Beautiful and the Cursed looks excellent, I'm going to need to add it to my TBR.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  24. So happy you read Dare You To! Peer Pressure strike again1 Now you just gotta read one Week Girlfriend :)
    You got The Beautiful and the Cursed? I am sooooo jealous! Random House hates me! I've never gotten abook from them and they don't like me on NetGalley or Edelweiss either :(
    Not a drop to Drink looks so good too. Enjoy!
    I think Lila was Echo's only friend in PtL.

    1. I'm getting to OWG! It's on my list! And I won TBanC actually - same with Strands. I don't think I've requested anything print from them before. On NetGalley/Edelweiss? I believe I have. PENGUIN hates me. Not a Drop To Drink looks and sounds sooo great! I can't wait to read it! And oh man. This is how long it's been since I read PtL. Ugh. My pleasure, Nereyda! Thank YOU!
