Stacking the Shelves (#55)


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, January 5th to Saturday, January 11th?

Guys. You have no idea HOW EXCITED I AM TO READ THIS BOOK. THIS IS ONE OF MY TOP TEN MOST ANTICIPATED NOVELS OF 2014 (proof).

Rachel at The YA Bookcase knew that I wanted to read this one... and sent it to me as a blogoversary present. I had NO IDEA she was going to send it to me. Wowza, right?! THANK YOU!

I'm going to end up with two copies of this book. But I'm going to love them both, because the two people that sent them to me (one is on the way) seriously did NOT have to do that for me. I LOVE YOU BOTH!


From Edelweiss:



So flippin excited to read this book! It sounds epic, Jodi is super nice, and LOOK AT THAT COVER!


For Review (for the blog tour):



I've been so, so anxious to read this book for MONTHS, you all - so, I'm honored to be a part of the blog tour! SQUEE!


First week back at school, for winter classes - not bad! I like the feel of winter classes than a regular semester - so much more laid back, and I have a lot more time. YAY!

  3. Oh wow! The Vanishing Season?! Seeing that too much today! I put a request in, but as I said, Edelweiss must not like me for 99% of my requests are denied. Really hoping for a yes with this one since so many others were denied. Happy Reading!!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  14. Woooo! I enjoyed Rush, so you'll have to tell me how Push is! I almost picked up The Vanishing Season but ended up holding off- though the cover is gorgeous! Gilded looks cool too! Good luck back at school lovely! And I sent Evertrue back last week, so let me know when you get it! :D You are awesomesauce.

  17. I didn't grab The Vanishing Season this week, but I did grab a handful of Harper's other titles! Oh, and I know how you feel about getting a copy of a book from your top ten most anticipated novels of 2014 list. I got two this week (Side Effects May Vary and The Falconer) and it's so exciting!

    I really hope you love your new books. :)

  20. Awwwww! Oh well, two copies for you! But hey! They're both from Rachels! That's kind of fun. :) And HarperCollins obviously knew how much you wanted The Vanishing Season and decided to put it up for you! I'm quite a fan of that cover for Gilded. I only just heard of the book the other day, but it sounds interesting! I'll look out for your review. :)

    Happy reading, Alyssa!!

    1. In my defense, I had NO IDEA she was sending it to me. None whatsoever. It was a complete shock.

      And right?! YAY for The Vanishing Season. And I'm quite taken with Gilded's cover - and as a long-time fan, I'm thrilled to be on the blog tour.

      Thank you, Rachel!
