Stacking the Shelves (#63)


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, March 2nd to Saturday, March 8th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you SO MUCH, Jen! You spoil me ;) I read and loved the first book, but I have not read this one.


From NetGalley:



SOOOO excited to read this book! I feel like I've been waiting for it for quite some time. I even had it as a WoW choice!



I decided to download this one on a whim - it's one of those "tough-issues" books, and it sounds really good.


One more week, and then I have my spring break! I'm not going anywhere or doing anything awesome, but the "break" part of spring break is all I need :)

  1. Both these book look awesome.
    Happy Spring Break. Hope you get lots of time to read.

  5. Nice haul. Did they change the cover of The Truth about Alice or is that just a cover for another country? Enjoy your books. My STS: http://www.thecovercontessa.com/2014/03/stacking-shelves-10.html

    1. I'm in the USA, so I believe it is the USA cover. I wouldn't know about a cover change though. Thanks!

  17. YAY Spring Break! :D Mine isn't until the first week in April, so I have a few weeks to go. I'm oddly ok with that though. LOL. Maybe it'll give it a chance to really warm up! Yay for DoBaS! I've got to start that series at some point! Take Back the Skies looks really cool too! Definitely let me know how you like it! Happy reading girl and enjoy that much needed break!

      Thank you so much for the positive thoughts, Kel! I definitely need them. And I hope to do lots of reading over the break :D

  20. I love the title of Take Back the Skies! Hope it's fantastic. The Truth About Alice definitely sounds like an emotional read. Yay for spring break, that means more time for reading right? ;)

    Here's my haul.

    1. Me too! It sounds pretty great too. And I am ready for another emotional read, I think! AND DEFINITELY MORE TIME TO READ, CYN! ^_^

  21. Yay for Days of Blood and Starlight. I love Laini Taylor so much. I can't wait for the next book, sigh. I've not heard of Take Back the Skies. I'll be looking that one up. Great haul! I hope you have a good week and not too much longer until Spring Break.

    1. I hope you love the last book! And if you decide to read Take Back the Skies, I hope you enjoy it! Thank you so much, Kristen <3

  22. Ah! I still haven't read Days of Blood and Starlight! Gah. And I still can't decide whether or not I want to read The Truth About Alice. You should read and review it so I can know. :D Take Back the Skies looks interesting, and I just read on Goodreads that she wrote it when she was 16 and sold it at 17! Some people make me feel really bad about my choices in life.

    But yay for spring break! I don't think I've done anything exciting in any of my college years for spring break but it's always the best rest in the middle of the semester. Two more weeks of classes, and then mine! Enjoy your week of class and then enjoy your break!!!!! :D

    1. I haven't either, if that makes you feel better. And I'll probably review ALICE next month, so if you can wait that long... ;) And YES, Lucy is very young! My age, or a few months older.

      I'm not doing anything exciting, and I am perfectly okay with that. TWO MORE WEEKS FOR YOU?! HOLD ON, LADY! I hope you enjoy yours as well! I'll be back in school when you get your break. Fun times, eh? ^_^

  23. The Days of Blood and Starlight is so crazy! A lot goes on. I hope you enjoy all your books and thanks for stopping by!

  24. I still need to read The Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I've heard awesome things. The Truth About Alice looks intense, but good. Yay for Spring Break being around the corner. I don't get one this year, but I remember how awesome the feeling was. :)

    1. It's a great series! From what I've read. WAIT WHAT DO YOU MEAN, YOU DON'T GET A SPRING BREAK D: Wait did you graduate? Sadness. Working full-time is scary :o
