Stacking the Shelves (#18)


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 21st to Saturday, April 27th?

(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:







(COMPLETELY unintentional acquisition of so many copies. I have my own signed hardcover copy of Grave Mercy. All I really need is one hardcover copy of Dark Triumph. So, you know what this means!)



A Such a Rush and a Dirty Little Secret bookmark


Various swag from Michelle (In Libris Veritas)


From NetGalley:

A Most Devilish Rogue


Fangirl


All Our Pretty Songs



From Edelweiss:

Any Duchess Will Do (Spindle Cove, #4)



*PHEW* 
That's it! It has been a rough week for me (non-book-related), but I am ready to start a new one! So, how was your week in books? :)

  1. It's great when you receive books in the mail, especially signed copies.

    1. I love getting books in the mail! And signed stuff is FANTASTIC :D

  2. Wow! Awesome haul! And yay for signed copies!!

    So weird that you got two sets of two books. I've only gotten doubles of the same book for review once. But that's weird that it happened with two books for some reason.

    Happy Reading!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  5. I love the cover of Taken! The colors are so unique and completely match.
    And oh my goodness, you got a copy of Dirty Little Secret? I so envy you. Can't wait to see your review on it! (:

    1. SAME! It's even more gorgeous in person, and in good lighting. I got a copy of DLS straight from Jennifer! She offered copies to bloggers on Twitter a few days ago. I'll get to it ASAP. Thank you!

    1. Ahh, none of them are signed. I do have one, but it's not featured (I got it over a year ago). You should go request Fangirl on NetGalley!

    1. I've seen some pretty poor reviews for Taken, meaning low stars, and from bloggers that I really like. I hope I like it! It would be such a waste if I didn't, having the pretty hardcover and everything.

  10. Great haul!!!! Congrats on all the books!! I hope you enjoy them all!! I haven't heard of any of them. Thank you so much for stopping by!!

  16. I've got ebook ARC of Taken, which I still didn't read because I read some bad reviews. But I hope you like it!
    I still need to read Grave Mercy, Dark Triumph, Allegiance Sworn (read book #1 and book #2).
    I hope this week is not so rough to you.

    1. I got one, too, but the same happened to me. But, I had already pre-ordered the book. You definitely should read Robin and Kylie's latest books! They are fantastic.

      Thank you for the encouragement! I hope so as well :)

    2. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one. I skipped Taken and The Ward for the same reason. And I will definitely read Robin and Kylie - I plan to do a catch up on my series this summer. :)

  26. Great haul! All Our Pretty Songs looks awesome. If they don't have it at ALA, I'll have to pick it up from Netgalley. And I'm so envious of Dirty Little Secret. I love Jennifer Echols, and I'm totally looking forward to that. Thanks for stopping by my StS.

  28. Ah Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph!*grabby hands* I've read both but I don't own actual copies, they are so pretty! I'm really hoping I get Fangirl, I'm waiting to see if I'm going to be approved right now.
    I'm glad the swag made it to you. It's nice to be able to help someone else with their collection AND clean out a bit. :)

      Well, thank you for letting me know! *winks*

      I HOPE YOU GET APPROVED FOR FANGIRL! You will. If I did, you will too.

      Thank you for the swag! You ROCK :D

  29. I loved Grave Mercy and never got around to reading Dark Triumph, I hear it’s even better than the first. Dirty Little Secret sounds like a great contemporary! I’ve never read a book by her before which is a shame. I don’t remember seeing All Our Pretty Songs on NetGalley…
    And if you want to borrow Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, let me know!
    Also send me your mailing address cause it will take me forever to find the old email with it…

    1. Nereyda, I'm pretty sure you would LOVE any of Jennifer Echols's books.

      I sent you the link on NetGalley!

      And I would LOVE to borrow BTDATDBS later in May, if that is okay! :)

  30. Getting signed copies is awesome! I'm super excited to read Dirty Little Secret and Fangirl! I've loved all of Rainbow Rowell's books so far so I'm hoping to also get approved for the ARC. Happy reading! :)
