Stacking the Shelves (#60)


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 9th to Saturday, February 15th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



I won the newsletter giveaway - cool! Thank you, C.J.!


From Edelweiss:



I'm officially on the blog tour for this one, so I figured that downloading the review copy would be a smart idea ;D



I SO cannot wait to read this one! I feel like I've been waiting to read it for like, FOREVER.



I actually don't know much about this book, but I'm curious.



Shallow of me, yes, but the cover is the only reason why I decided to get this book. I'm not familiar with the author or the book. But I suppose I will be!



I LOVED the first book! I cannot wait to dig into this sequel.


After a week of books like LAST WEEK, I definitely expected a tamer week this week. Although, Simon and Schuster saved me with those last four Edelweiss books.Also, I didn't go home this weekend, so who knows what I have at home. I'm so not complaining though - this week kicked my butt. Like, seriously. I went insane and back and then some. Thank goodness we had Thursday and Friday off (snow days). I NEEDED THEM.

Anyway. How are you all? Tell me all about your week :)

  3. Those books have such beautiful covers! I still need to read Linked before I read Unravel, but those covers are so gorgeous I wouldn't mind having them on my shelf just for the heck of it ;) And I love how the Falls in the Shadow has a double face on the cover. Happy reading, Alyssa! <33

  5. Oh I requested Dissonance! I hope I get it! And yay for Unravel! I still need to read Imogen's first book. I hesitated on Sublime, just because I already have so many books as it is. And yay for that Defiance tote! Enjoy your new reads Alyssa! Let me know how Prisoner is! :D

    1. Good luck! And I really hope you do read Linked, Jess, because it was so good. It's definitely under-appreciated. I know what you mean about Sublime - I personally could not help myself.

      Thank you!!

    1. I totally agree! They do have gorgeous covers. Prisoner of Night and Fog should be the most powerful, based on the summary.

  18. I hope you enjoyed those snow days! I was missing not having some this week. :) I'M ON THE PRISONER OF NIGHT AND FOG TOUR TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - THE DAY BEFORE YOUUUUUUUUU!

    Sublime. Woah at that cover. I would've gotten it just for that too! I want it and I have no idea what it's about!!

    I hope your week is wonderful and that your stress makes you infinitely productive--or that you don't have a reason to stress! Whichever one makes you happier. :)

    1. I sort of did... the snow days gave me even more opportunities to study for an upcoming midterm, which I took. And studied. A LOT.

      And YAY congrats! That's awesome! And I love the cover of Sublime as well.

      Thank you, Rachel! The stress is definitely keeping me motivated... and awake, unfortunately. I wish I didn't have any! lol
