Stacking the Shelves (#56)


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 12th to Saturday, January 18th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Remember last week, when I said I was going to end up with two ARCs of this book? Last week's ARC was a surprise. This one, I knew about. Thank you so so so much, Rachel!



SQUEE! My first ARC from Macmillan! And it's by an "Alyssa". And it's purple. And I can't wait to read it.



My second ARC from Macmillan! I don't read many books like this one, so I'm intrigued.

Now, the question is, will I get the third and final book I requested from Macmillan? Stay tuned, everyone. Hopefully, I will!



I LOVED Article 5! But I never caught up with this series. Binge-reading for the win!


From NetGalley:



I already have a print ARC of this one. I think I requested the eARC first, and then was sent a print ARC. Oh well. These things happen.


Last week of winter classes is coming! But I only have two days of class. Then, the spring semester starts on the 27th! I'm excited to see the friends that didn't come back early (like I did) for winter classes. NOT excited for classes. But that's life! :)

  1. I saw Push and felt like deja vu. I got 3 doubles this week too...
    I got Second Star and I am so freaking excited! Also got My Last Kiss! Good luck on your other Mac book :)

  3. Wow! I am always amazed by how many ARCs you get!! I've read Fire & Flood already myself, really hope you enjoy that one! The rest are pretty much new to me. All unread, but I've heard of some of them!

    Hope you enjoy all your awesome new reads!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. I'm super jealous of your Macmillan books, I really hope you enjoy those books. I wasn't a fan of Rush, but I do love the covers of that one and Push. Fire and Blood has gotten nothing but raving reviews; I hope you enjoy all of your books! Good luck in your spring semester! Lol my midterms are gonna be then *shoots self*

    1. Ooo, thanks! And I agree, the covers are superb. I actually haven't seen many reviews of Fire & Flood yet, but I know that there is a lot of buzz about this book.

      Good luck! Remember, you're only in ninth grade ;)

    1. I HOPE IT DOES! And the buzz surrounding Fire & Flood is too intense not to pass up this book. I hope you love it, Rachel! :)

  12. Fire & Flood! Really want to read that one. My Last Kiss sounds good but a bit too sad for me. Thanks for stopping by! I still need to read RUSH and Article 5. Enjoy!

    1. I hope you do read it, Jen! It's supposed to be fabulous :d And I think my Last Kiss is supposed to be emotion-invoking - which is one of the reasons why I requested it! I don't read nearly enough of those.

      Thank you!

  13. I like the sound of My Last Kiss, hope it's good.

  17. Ohhh, I want a copy of Push too. It's not even close to being released in Australia though. Fire & Flood is another one. So jealous. Awesome haul, looking forward to your thoughts. Happy reading.

  25. Awesome haul! I really want to check out Second Star. Last Kiss sounds pretty good. Fire and Flood looks cool, though I just remembered I've gotten behind on the Dante series haha. Good luck with the spring semester!

    1. I believe both are on NetGalley! And as you know, Fire & Flood is as well. It's a different series! The Warrior (book three of the Dante series) will be out in May, so you have time to read Fire & Flood AND the other Dante books :D

      Thank you so much!

  27. I've heard good things about Article 5 and more importantly, I've heard the series conclusion is satisfying! So yay! I held off on picking up that series until all the books were out, so I'll have to start it sometime soon. Enjoy your books, Alyssa! And thanks for stopping by The Readers Den! :)
