Stacking the Shelves (#49)


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, November 24th to Saturday, November 30th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

Remember last week's STS post? I promised pictures of whatever Harper sent me?

Ta-da!



A SURPRISE PACKAGE! My first package from Harper, filled with un-requested goodies. I didn't ask for any of these, but I will totally take them! Except Evertrue. I don't want that one. So, I'll probably give it away in January, as my monthly giveaway prize.

Other things from last week...


A Kindle Paperwhite! I won this from Hypable HERE... back in May. Eesh. At least I finally got the prize!



A Goodreads giveaway win - the few and far apart ;)


From NetGalley:




From Edelweiss:



I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this one or not - given my reaction to Wait For You - but I'll see.


For the next two weeks, I might not be around. Heck, I might not even be sane. Can you guess?

FINALS! Two weeks of finals, and then I'm free. I'll see you all after December 16th!

Note: This does NOT mean hiatus. I have blog posts scheduled for the next two weeks. It just means I'll get to comments and replying and tweets later than usual. Like, on weekends.

  1. Awesome haul. If you don't want Evertrue, I'll take it off your hands. You got some great goodies. The JLA Armentrout book looks amazing. Some great books.

    1. That's great! I am positive that you will love them. And THAT IS GREAT TO HEAR! I'm getting the hang of it - I really like it!

  3. Awesome haul. I also got Be With Me this week! I'm pretty excited for it because I did really enjoy Wait For You. I have a feeling our reactions to the sequel will be quite different. Or not. We'll see how it goes. :)

    I recently read Avalon, and I loved it! It has a lot of twists, and it's pretty exciting. I hope it turns out to be as good of a read for you as it was for me.

    1. I hope you love it, then! I'll probably end up reading it, and hopefully, I like it as well. And I'm so glad to hear that Avalon is great! I have a good feeling that I will LOVE that one :D

  4. Oh wow! You sure do get lucky with the review books! I am dying to read Cruel Beauty and have been rejected so many times on Edelweiss for it that I have lost count! Hope you enjoy all your new goodies!

    Yay for a new kindle! Congrats on the wins!

    My STS won't be up til tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. LOL nooo, I did not. It's not on Edelweiss? Weird. And yes! I did not expect this at all. I hope you DO get a random, amazing package from Harper!

      And thanks so much! I hope I do well. Hope.

    1. Email their general account! That's how I think I got on that list. I hope you get ARCs from them soon! You're a great blogger, so that would be awesome. Thank you, Tammy!

  10. Great books this week, Alyssa! I'm reading Her Dark Curiosity now and really like it, but I'm only about 100 pages in. I've heard it doesn't do the first book justice, but we shall see! *fingers crossed*

  15. Great haul! I have a bunch of those as e-ARCs expect for Evertrue haha. I still need to read The Madman's Daughter though! Ooh Kindle paperwhite, I won a kindle once, but it was just the basic one (which I still really like)...mine took a long time to get to me too haha. Hope you enjoy all your new books!

    1. Same! I downloaded all the eARCs from Harper, because I wasn't expecting a package lol. I have a basic Kindle as well! So this new Paperwhite is a step up. Thank you!

    1. Haha, I agree! And right?! Silly. Thank you so much, Nereyda!

  20. Yay HarperCollins! I think surprise packages are better than ones we know we're getting. :) But no love for Evertrue. Hehe. I haven't read any of those books, nor have I ever felt particularly inclined to do so. And oh my gosh, a Kindle? How cool! Better late than never, though. And ooh you're reading The Promise of Amazing! How do you like it??

    1. I agree! But it was my first package from Harper, AND it was a surprise. Doubly awesome! And I wouldn't bother with the Everneath series, if you weren't already going to read them. I love my new Kindle! I had to leave it home though, so I could focus lol. My review of The Promise of Amazing will go live in 12 minutes! I really did not like that book though.

      Thank you, Rachel!

  21. And you also have The Queen's choice. I am interested of what you think about it. The cover is really gorgeous and I am a sucker for fantasy books.

    Have a great week, Alyssa. And have fun reading all your beauties.
