Stacking the Shelves (#79)


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, June 22nd to Saturday, June 28th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you, Bloomsbury!!



So much awesome in one package! Thank you so much, Harper!



Thank you, Scholastic!



I cannot wait to read this one! Thank you, Disney!


From Edelweiss:



I'm excited about this one! Fantasy, and I've had success with White's books recently.


I took my final exam on Friday, so I'M FREE! From summer classes, that is. I start my job at the university on Monday. No rest for the wicked!

  1. Congrats on finishing school. The Book From Scholastic looks interesting. I see lots of pretty ARC's that I want to touch and feel. Great stack.

    1. I wasn't expecting it, from Harper! They do that sometimes, and it's never planned :D I'm not too familiar with Faces of the Dead myself!

      Thank you!!

    1. Hmmm, soon as in July, perhaps :D I'ver read Paranormalcy and the sequel (which I can't remember for the life of me), The Chaos of Stars, and I attempted with Mind Games, but ehhh. I've liked the three I've read! So this will be four, hopefully :) Thank you!

  17. FERAL, yay! Really looking forward to reading it, my type of read. :) And I'm going to have to buy The Bone Season at some point, though some reviews have put me off it, but you won't know until you've given it a chance yourself, right? I haven't been on EW for a week so didn't know Illusions of Fate was up, now I'm going to go download it...Happy reading! :)

  23. I hope they've corrected the typos in The Bone Season for the paperback (and maybe done some extra editing. I had a lot of issues with that one...)

    Congrats on surviving the final exam! You're free! Kind of. ;)

    1. Oh no D: I'm sorry to hear that! I have not read it yet, so I can't say anything about it.

      THANK YOU, KEL!! I love my job, so I feel free, compared to being in class ;)

  24. FREEDOM!! From class, at least! And so much mail! I haven't read The Bone Season yet, but it looks like they're doing lots and lots of promo right now.. Hmm. I read Defiance, but haven't read Deception yet. I am certainly curious to know how it all ends, though! :)

    Have a wonderful week Alyssa! Good luck with work (though your first day has happened already...)! :D

    1. I KNOW RIGHT?! And the mail is the icing on the cake. I LOVED Defiance and Deception - I'm holding off for a bit until I read Deliverance.

      Thank you so much, Rachel! My first day was great, and the second day was pretty awesome as well ^_^

  26. Yay for Illusions of Fate! I have a feeling this one will be her best yet. I've liked all her books so far (except the one or two that I haven't read), but I haven't loved any of them. I'm hoping her new one will be the one that I love. :) Enjoy your new books, Alyssa!
