Stacking the Shelves (#67)


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 30th to Saturday, April 5th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:


A lovely bunch of swag and a Twix bar (my favorite chocolate bar!)

HUGE, MASSIVE thank-you to Lena, for letting me borrow her ARC, and sending me bookmarks and MY FAVORITE CHOCOLATE! I definitely was NOT expecting that :D



Thank you so much, Kristen and Eli, for the giveaway! I seriously cannot wait to read this debut!



Congratulations on the fabulous news, Jessica! And thank you, Macmillan, for the paperback copy.


Little Arrow Ring

I seriously LOVE this ring! It's a size 6, which is actually one size too big even on my index finger (I'm a size 5 for my middle finger), but I really don't care because I LOVE IT!


From Edelweiss:



I really liked the first book in this series! So I'm excited to read the second one.


From Amazon (for my Kindle):



Kate McGarry. Enough said.


What a week! I got some amazing news, but I can't share it with you all (yet?) - not until I finalize some other things :) How is everyone?

  1. OooOoh I love that ring too!!! Sadly though sizes 5 and 6 I haven't seen since probably when I was 10 yrs old lol.. I must have big fingers. I only know that my ring finger is an 8..

    1. I'm glad you do! I have such a hard time finding a size 5 in ring... and also shoes LOL. I'm a tiny person in terms of weight, so don't feel bad :)

    1. In time, lady! And I love it as well - it's definitely going to be "overworn" LOL. I hope you enjoy Red At Night! And I hope to tell everyone soon ;)

  16. I also got Red at Night this week. I don't even think I've read the description. The fact that it's written by Katie McGarry makes me want to read it. :) I won a copy of Unremembered last year, but sadly, I still haven't read it. (I've been pushing a lot of books back this year.) Tabula Rasa looks really good! So does that Twix bar . . . I hope you enjoy your new books!

  20. Um, news? I want to hear news! YOUR'E SUCH A TEASEEEEEEEEEE.

    Ain't no thang that your ring is too big! It's adorable! And you can be one of those cool people who wear rings on their pointer finger. I always thought those people had wayyy more swagger than I did. :D

    Also, OOH Curses and Smoke! And Twix! That's my favorite too!!

    Now I want Twix. It's 2 am. I will not go to Walmart to buy candy. Repeat: I will not go to Walmart to buy candy. Anyways, have a great week Alyssa!!

    1. Ha! I'm actually not sure if I will share it now - it's kind of no longer good. BUT, it is. It's good but its not.

      I'll remember that, about Twix ;)

      HAHAHAHA DID YOU?! You should have ;D

      Thank you!
