Stacking the Shelves (#81)


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, July 6th to Saturday, July 12th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Woohoo! Thank you, Jeri! Apparently I won last year... well, I completely forgot about that :D



Thank you, Rachel! I'll be reviewing this one over at The (YA) Bookcase - soon!



Thank you, Harlequin! I cannot wait to read this book. BOOK ONE WAS GREAT!!



The (arguably) best package of the week... Erin's first signed ARC! I love being first. And I've mostly enjoyed this series, so I definitely want to know how it all ends. YAY!


From Edelweiss:



I loved book one - and I'm excited to read book two!


One of the good bookish weeks, as far as they go! Also a great week at work. And I got awesome school-related news (which I can't share at the moment, unfortunately), so it was a good week! I like having good weeks - they balance the dominant bad ones. *shoos away bad weeks*

  19. Woo! Yay for a good week! :D Definitely a good one on the book end. I love that you said you love being first. Goodness. The cover for Forged is seriously gorgeous. I haven't started those books yet, though I have the first! And Diamonds in the Rough! I'll be interested to see what you think of it. I didn't love the first book, but if it gets really good reviews I'll give it a try. :)
