Stacking the Shelves (#83)


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 20th to Saturday, July 26th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you, Harper! I have two ARCs of The Perilous Sea - well, that's a problem, isn't it? In any case, expect reviews of these two in August!


For the Blog Tour:



I'm honored to be on the blog tour! I was on the blog tour for the first book, Gilded, and really enjoyed the book. Excited for Silvern!


Last full week of July, yo! It was a great week, even better than last week. There wasn't anything too special about this week, but there wasn't anything horrible about it... which was great :)

    Love the cover of The Jewel, reminds me of The Selection covers. I hope I can get round to reading it soon!

    1. But you've read it, so that's a good thing! Some bloggers don't even get eARCs or print ARCs. Thank you, Carina!

  16. I had the UK version of The Jewel in the mail last week (which, looks like broken glass) still think the US covers better though, just so damn pretty. :)

    Here's mine

  17. Jewel looks like it will be a great read. Hope you love it and have a great week!

  18. Man, I almost can't believe July is already almost over. This summer is just flying by. All three of those books have such gorgeous covers! I'll be reading e-arcs of The Perilous Sea and The Jewel soon-ish. I have a copy of Gilded, but I'm not sure when I'll read it. I hope you enjoy your new books!

    1. Right?! Seriously! I don't really want to go back to school yet, especially consider that summer classes ended a month ago. I hope you enjoy The Perilous Sea, The Jewel, and Gilded!

  19. You know, average weeks are underrated! I mean, it's nice just to relax and live life with nothing interfering. :)

    But also, DROOLS at the pretties. I'm quite ready to see what you think of The Perilous Sea. I'll be reading it soooooooon! I might have a break down if it's not good, actually.

    HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK ALYSSA!

    1. I agree! I should have been appreciating them more, in the past. I hope you enjoy The Perilous Sea! I'll cry if it doesn't live up to my enormous expectations lol. I think I need to re-read The Burning Sky though.

      YOU TOO, RACHEL!! <3

  20. Ah, obviously The Perilous Sea and you were meant to be since you have two copies! Let me know what you think of it when you're done! :)

  23. I'm really excited about Jewel so I can't wait to know your thoughts on it!

  24. Great haul! I loved the idea of The Jewel. And I've been wanting to check out Sherry Thomas' YA series because the covers are so pretty, is that shallow? haha. (and well I've heard things, too, haha). Hope you enjoy your new books!

    1. I hope you read The Burning Sky! I seriously LOVED it. And not shallow at all! Thank you!

  25. Aha! I've seen The Jewel and Perilous Sea on EW but was apprehensive to download them. I am still trying to determine the general consensus of the bloggers for these two books. Of course, with Perilous Sea, I still have to read The Burning Sky, isn't it? I'll think about it tonight and you know, skim through the goodreads review again. :D

    I am really jealous of your physical ARCs. They are really pretty. Have fun reading them, Alyssa.

    Thanks for stopping by Thoughts and Pens.

  26. YAY for a week without horrible stuff!! =D
    Can you believe I still haven't read The Burning Sky?? I have it in my Kindle, but I still haven't read it!
    Cannot wait to hear what you think of The Jewel, that's one of the books I fear will have a pretty cover syndrome!
    Happy reading, Alyssa!

    1. You must read The Burning Sky! It must be burning a hole through your Kindle! ;) I hope The Jewel isn't like The Selection tough...

      Hope you had an awesome weekend, Pili! Thank you!
