Stacking the Shelves (#33)


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, August 3rd to Saturday, August 10th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:




I've read Hopeless and LOVED it!



I read Throne of Glass last year - it was pretty great! I read Crown of Midnight last month - it was good.



SO EXCITED TO READ THIS BOOK! I was shocked when Simon and Schuster sent me an ARC. First time I've received something directly from them!



Read this book and loved it! But I wanted a print ARC, with the old cover. I'll be ordering the hardcover with the new cover as well. I'm weird about my covers and favorite books. This one was an all-time favorite for sure! Thank you, Nikki, for trading!


An ARC of Enchanted by Alethea Kontis

Thank you to Lili at Lili's Reflections for trading with me!








From Edelweiss:




Just finished Shadow's Curse... it was pretty good!




My first (of hopefully all) of those recent Harper uploads...


For My Kindle:






Kissing the Maid of Honor by Robin Bielman


Two words: PERFECT RUIN!

  2. AAAH TOO MUCH AWESOMENESS. First off- such pretty swag! O: I really liked Hopeless as well, and I started reading Throne of Glass a few days ago, but I have to put it off until after I start school because I'm so busy, which SUCKS. I'm also super excited about Perfect Ruin & The Burning Sky. (I'm totally jealous that you got an arc ;D I love the cover SOO much!)

    My STS, in case you want to check it out!

  6. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed Hopeless and Throne of Glass! Throne of Glass was one of my favorite reads last year too! It was so fabulous.
    And you got Perfect Ruin! Woot!
    You already know how much I love The Burning Sky! ;) I actually liked the old cover. I wonder why they changed it.
    Anyways, enjoy your goodies! :)

    1. SAME! Also a favorite from last year. And they changed the cover to match the burning part of the title... the old ARC had water, not fire ;)

      Thank you!

  10. I got the novellas temporarily haha the last one ripped my heart to shreds. I haven't started CoM because I haven't recovered.

    I struggled with HOPELESS. I found it to be interesting, but it didn't blow me away. Gave it 3 stars due to overall disappointed because of the hype.

    Can't wait to see what you think of ENCHANTED and I can't wait to get to THE BURNING SKY either!

    But gah! PERFECT RUIN! You should get to that soon because y'know ;)

    1. OMG LILI YOU MUST START COM! Because I want to see what YOU think.

      Hopeless... I loved it. It was very unique and original. Now, if you read it (and let's say you read a ton of NA books), you might not think so.

      The Burning Sky is amazing! And thank you again for Enchanted!

      And yeah... Perfect Ruin ;)

  13. I got a copy of The Burning Sky this week in the mail from Sherry Thomas! She heard I was denied an ARC and since we've talked about her historicals lots of times she was kind enough to send me a signed copy. I treat it like gold! haha

    I really liked Kissing the Maid of Honor! It was a fun light read and I hope you like it too. :)

  27. THE SWAG! THE SWAG! Especially the Fierce Reads swag!! I'm soooooo peanut butter and jelly over here! *grabby hands* love it. I think everyone and their best friend has read Hopeless but ME! UGH! I even have it and I haven't read it yet. Ridiculous, right?! OMG, I loved Throne of Glass and so awesome you did too. I still have to read Crown of Midnight, but it's nice to know you thought it was good! Gives me something to look forward too. I can't blame you for wanting the old cover to The Burning Sky! It's pretty wicked awesome! I forgot what the new cover looks like!! I definitely have to check that one out especially since it's a fave of yours! Why the hell I passed it up when it was on EW is beyond me! I'm crossing my fingers your get the rest of those Harper titles!! Enjoy the books you have yet to read! Have an amazing week.

    P.S. I'm pretty pissed that I wasn't following your blog when I KNOW I WAS ALREADY. Bloglovin' be trippin' so I'm thankful you commented on my STS first or else I would have never realized I wasn't following you. *grumbles* BUT HEY, I'm now a semi-new follower not really but lets pretend because it's awesome :) LOL!
