Stacking the Shelves (#59)


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, February 2nd to Saturday, February 8th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



I actually got that last week, but forgot to feature it. I'm reviewing it in a few days!



No, you didn't miss a giveaway or contest or something. THANK YOU, APRIL!! <3



My third and final request from Macmillan! So I got all three of the books I requested ^_^



AHHHH! RACHEL, I GOT AN ARC! Yes, I got it from NetGalley last week. But I had no idea if my request for a print ARC would be approved (i.e., that I'd be sent an ARC). So yay!



Thank you, Jaime! I already read and reviewed this one, but a finished copy is nice - now I have first edition hardcover copies of the entire series! :D


From Edelweiss:



I've read book one, but I have not read book two. That did not stop me from downloading this book :D



I really enjoyed In the After, so I'm going to keep reading the series!



Okay, this is my SECOND Kasie West book, and I have not read either book yet (this one and Pivot Point). I'll get there, I promise...



I'd actually never heard of this one, but a YADC blogger got an ARC, and it sounds interesting, so I went on Edelweiss and downloaded it!


From NetGalley:



I LOVED the first book, so of course I would want to read the companion novel!


Whew! What a haul. It's been a few weeks since I've had more than just a few books, right? And then BAM! A smack in the face, via BOOKS! Fun times. Lots of sequels. How is everyone doing?

  6. Oooooh, what a fantastic haul!!
    BIG YAY for you getting a signed ARC of Between The Spark & The Burn!
    And I'm quite envious of you being able to go and download In the End and Strange And Ever After! I requested both so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

    I was also approved for Where Silence Gathers, and I can't wait till I can read it!

    Happy reading, Alyssa! Have a great weekend!

  14. We legitimately got ALL THE SAME BOOKS from Edelweiss except I didn't get In The End because I haven't read In The After yet. Sigh. I should go grab it just in case. LOL.

    YAY FOR SIGNED BOOKS.

    I am doing well, it's the weekend and next week I get a three day weekend which is kind of awesome.

  18. WOW I don't know where to begin. lol I've never heard of some of the book you got so I'm going to look those up. I've heard of Into the Still Blue and Strange and Ever After, but I've yet to read them. On the Fence and The Kiss of deception sound really good and it doesn't hurt that I like the covers. :D I hope you enjoy all your books and thanks for stopping by my STS!

  24. I know what you mean! Some weeks there are few books, and then suddenly, approvals come from all over the place, plus some pre-orders are delivered and the TBR shelf continues to swell.
    I hope you'll enjoy all your new books! They all look awesome :)
    Thanks for stopping by earlier.

  25. I've only read West's The Distance Between Us, but I really liked it. On The Fence sounds super cute! I need to read Pivot Point soon too, now that Split Second is almost out haha.
    Seems like sometimes all the books come at once haha. Oh well, you definitely got some awesome books! Hope you enjoy (:

  28. BOOK SMACK! :)

    Second mention in a rowwwwww, feelin' special. :) It's so pretty and I'm so jealous and I'm SO hoping that a copy is coming to me in SOME WAY. And yay for The Kiss of Deception! That looks so AMAZINGGGG. Ah! I haven't read the second book by Susan Dennard either! I've been resisting getting Strange and Ever After as motivation to get to it. I don't have my copy of Into the Still Blue yet--I'm waiting to buy it from the bookstore that I'm attending the Dark Days tour at. :) DUDE, IF YOU WANT ME TO GET SOMETHING SIGNED YOU SHOULD SEND IT TO MEEE. I'm already going to have an absurd number of books. :D

    HAVE A GREAT WEEK ALYSSA!
