Stacking the Shelves (#37)


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, September 1st to Saturday, September 7th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:


An ARC of Unbreakable by Kami Garcia
An ARC of The 100 by Kass Morgan

I actually should have featured the first two in my previous STS post, since I got them last week. But, I went home from college to open the boxes on Monday, so that's why they're in this post. I read The Liberator in July for the tour, but I haven't read Origin yet. SO EXCITED! I haven't read Unbreakable yet, either. The same is true for The 100, which I got via trade with a lovely blogger!



THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE AMAZING BLOGGER THAT DECIDED TO SEND THIS BOOK TO ME! Seriously though. I am so humbled and honored and touched and SHE ROCKS! I cannot WAIT to read this book :D


From NetGalley:



Look at his arms... 


From Edelweiss:



I loved Jeri's Shade trilogy! She is so cool, and she's a Maryland author! I cannot wait to start this book :D



I haven't read the first book in this series, but I own it, so there's that!


Not too bad, right? Especially for my first full week in college. YAY LIFE! :)

  3. The 100 looks really good, but I've heard mixed things. I'm hoping it's good though because I want the CW show to do well ;) Great haul, Alyssa! And I hope you have fun in your first semester of college!

  5. I tried reading Let The Sky Fall but DNF at page 200. I felt nothing for the characters & no connection between them and I did not want to read 200 more pages of that. BUT it was one of my favorite covers of the year, gorgeous.

    1. Hmmm, interesting. I've heard a lot more (-) than (+) with Let the Sky Fall. But, I'll have to read it to see it. I love the cover of both books as well!

  7. Great haul!! I have yet to buy Origin, because I am terrified to read it. I mean I'm excited because it's from the LUX series, but I heard that the ending is worse than the ending of Opal. But I'm going to make myself read it...soon.
    Hope you like all your new books :D

  8. I'm reading Origin right now and it is wonderful. We get both Katy and Daemon's points of view. I'm really intrigued by the Dante Walker series and will have to check it out soon. Happy reading!
