Stacking the Shelves (#36)


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 25th to Saturday, August 31st?



(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Swag from Anna Banks/Anna Scarlett, including bookmarks, chocolate, and a temporary tattoo

Anna is so cool! I love her and her books :)




OMG! I HAD NO IDEA I WAS GETTING THIS ONE! I mean, I asked, but I had no idea that Greenwillow would send it to me. IT'S MY FIRST ARC SENT DIRECTLY FROM HARPER COLLINS! Not a giveaway win, or anything! Thank you, Leah and Harper!




Thank you, Tor! I knew I was getting a copy, but I was expecting an ARC. When I never got an ARC, I figured it was a lost cause. But I am totally okay with a finished copy!


From Edelweiss:




I haven't read this one yet, but I am so excited to get the chance to do so!



It's New Adult, and it's by Sophie Jordan (I didn't kike her Firelight series), but I'm willing to give it a shot!


I'M AT HOPKINS! I've moved in! So, I probably have mail from Thursday, Friday, and Saturday that I haven't seen yet. But YAY!

Here is a side-view of SOME of my space in my room that I share with my roommate. It's a HUGE room, bigger than most college rooms.

  6. Great haul!

    That IS a lot of space. Does your desk double as a separator? That would be convenient.

    1. Thanks!

      YES! My desk and dresser and my roommate's desk and dresser are back-to-back, in the middle of the room. So, I'm in the back of the room, and she's in the front by the door.

  14. I'm so jealous of your books (I always am!). Antigoddess sounds amazing, and congrats on the move. I got settled into mine about two weeks ago- it's a single, and I am so ecstatic about it.

    1. LOL! I'm honored that you're jealous of my haul, Jillyn. It makes me feel special ;) I think Antigoddess is supposed to be really, really good, but I need to read it to find out!

      Congrats on the single! Those are fabulous. My room is a double in a suite!

  16. Your dorm is definitely bigger than the one I was in! I had to loft my bed for extra space :) I absolutely love the cover for Death Sworn. I'm going to go look it up bc it's so pretty. Great haul!

    1. It's huge! I thought about lofting my bed, but I never contacted Housing for the loft!

      I also love the cover of Death Sworn! I can't wait to read it. You must read it!

  17. Omg congrats on your first Harper ARC! I got my first Harper ARC like last year and I literally like almost started crying it was an interesting moment in my life ;D I'm super jealous of Antigoddess! I wanted to get a copy at BEA but I didn't make the line >.<

    Fantastic haul, I hope you enjoy, Alyssa! <33

    1. Thank you! That is awesome. I've been blogging for eight months, so this is a huge deal!

      I emailed Tor for an ARC of Antigoddess, but they said they probably wouldn't have any more ARCs (this was months ago). I was super surprised about the finished copy!

      Delete
  18. Congrats! The room does look bigger than most, even just with that side-view picture. I hope you enjoy every second of it!! :)

    Great book haul! I also got Finding It. I can't wait to get my hands on Antigoddess!!! Enjoy! :)

    1. THANK YOU! I love the room. I need to get a full picture view of it - that'll be difficult though.

      I hope you love Finding It! And get Antigoddess sometime soon, when it comes out.

      Thank you, Lisa!

  21. Congrats on a great haul and moving in the dorm! Looks like a nice space! Thanks for sharing!

  22. HA! I beat you this week! (That might be because I procrastinating reading the play I'm supposed to be reading... Maybe...)

    But AH! What a great week! Anyone who sends chocolate is a winner in my book. And I'm absolutely dying to read Antigoddess after the creepy marvel that was Anna Dressed in Blood! I haven't heard of Death Sworn, but I'll be looking it up in a moment (more procrastinating...)

    And yay college! What day do you start? (I'm just going to totally creep on your entire college career, be warned.)

    Here's my STS!

    1. LOL! That's awesome! I just haven't had time to comment on other people's blogs this week.

      I AGREE! Anna is so cool. I haven't read anything by Kendare Blake, so Antigoddess will be my first book. Death Sworn is an upcoming Harper book! LOOK IT UP!

      Classes start on Tuesday! I'm excited, but I haven't bought books yet D:

      Thanks, Rachel!

  23. you're lucky about your new room. i'm living in student housing at my university and my room is teeny tiny. they haven't assigned me a roommate yet and i'm hoping they won't because if they did, we'd be living like sardines.

    AWESOME books! i've been wanting to read antigoddess since i really enjoyed blake's anna dressed in blood.

    hope you can stop by my StS.

    1. LOL! I'm in housing for freshmen - not an apartment or anything, but a suite. I hope you don't get a roommate, if you don't want one.

      I hope you get to read Antigoddess at some point! I have never read any of Blake's books, but this will be my first one!

  24. You will be getting mail from me this week! I meant to send it out last week, but got sick and then went to GA for the book festival. Getting the package today and sending it tomorrow afternoon. :D I love the look of the dorm! It's cute from what I can see! As for books- I also have Finding It and Foreplay- I hope they are good! And congrats on your Harper ARC! I haven't heard of that one, but it looks really good!
