Stacking the Shelves (#86)


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, August 10th to Saturday, August 16th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you for trading with me, Josie! I'd post a picture of my actual book, but my sister already ran away with it. I just hope I get it back...



!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE THIS SERIES AND THIS AUTHOR AND APOLLO AND OMG OMG OMG OMG!! Thank you, Grand Central Publishing!


From NetGalley:



Another series conclusion novel, ahhhhh!! And it came with a Kensington auto-approval (which includes their adult novels... so, historical romances, here I come) ;D


Not a bad week! Scary moment at the doctor's on Wednesday, but I'm good. One more full week of work, and then it'll just be about 10 hours a week (instead of 37.5), because of school! Such exciting times :)

  2. Ooooh, Four looks so pretty! I really think I need to get me the short story and see if that gets me in the right mood for finally reading Allegiant!!
    Happy reading Alyssa!

    1. It is lovely! And I haven't read any of the short stories, but I'm excited to have the opportunity to do so. I'm not reading Allegiant, though I have a copy. LOL

  3. OOoh nice! I still need to read Four as well! Luckily my sister hasn't finished reading the trilogy yet and I have no idea if she'd be interested in it to be honest. She doesn't seem big on novellas. Better for me! ;)

    Happy Reading!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. Fourrrrr! The minute we got copies of this at the store on its release date people were coming in to get it, or noticed it right away. I don't have it but I haven't finished the trilogy yet (I know!)!

  9. I have to catch up on The Elemental Series. I read book one and then never got around to book two. I do how ever like that cover model. Haha. Hope you enjoy all your books Alyssa!

  10. I'm glad you're okay Alyssa. I really need to get caught up with the Elemental series, I read books one and two. This is my favorite cover though.

    1. Thank you, Liza! And you muuuusssssstttttttt keep reading! Book one was my favorite though, in terms of the books. Covers? I agree, this one is my favorite :D Thank you!

  11. I really need to get Four and read it. I've heard good things about it--you know, I've still not read Allegiant. I own it but I was spoiled on how it ended so haven't read it yet. I guess I should get around to that eventually too. So many books to read so little time. I'm glad you're ok from what ever happened at the doc office :-/ health scares are never fun.

  14. Ahh, Four is a book that I am trying to stay away from. Allegiant has scarred me for life and not in a good way. Sighs. I do hope that Four will compensate for the heartaches caused by Allegiant.

    Good luck to the both us on our first day of classes! :D

  17. Ohh, I love the physical book of Four! The cover is amazing. I have each novella separate, and I kind of wish I'd just gotten the book. And signed? Amazing!! Hope you have a great week :)

  19. I'm glad you're okay!! :)

    I love that your sister stole your book. That wouldn't fly in my house. :) Darling Beast sounds like a Beauty and the Beast retelling! I would most definitely read that. I should also read an Elizabeth Hoyt book in general, for obvious reasons. :D

    I hope you love all of these and I HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT WEEK ALYSSA!

    1. I am, thanks! And dudeee, I haven't seen it back yet O_O I'm super excited about the new Hoyt book! And obviously you just read her books. OBVIOUSLY. At least the Maiden Lane ones.

      THANK YOUUUUUUU!!

  20. *Hugs about scary moment* <3 Hope you are feeling better :) And yay for lots of gorgeous books :D I ordered signed Four via B&N about a week ago. They had gotten it in stock again. But.. it is not now. And I am worried that they have sent me the unsigned one :p as I remember you writing about that on twitter one day? ACK. I am worried. But hoping it will be the signed one :) Anyway. Happy reading Alyssa. <3

  22. I read Divergent but haven't continued with the series. So the ending spoiler and am kind of pissed now but will make myself finish it eventually. LOL I still want to start that hot elemental brothers series! Thanks for stopping by!

  24. I'm excited for Sacrifice! I still haven't read past the first book in the series, though, so it'll be a long time before I get to the last one. I really want to read Four! Enjoy your new books. :)
