Stacking the Shelves (#92)


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, September 21st to Saturday, September 27th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Both from Little, Brown UK! Interesting how a UK pub is now sending me books. I won't complain! I love Hoyt's books - I love historical romance novels in general!



Zodiac postcards

I literally JUST traded a book for an ARC of Zodiac... and then Penguin decides to surprise me with this package. I'm so not complaining though! That just means GIVEAWAY!


From NetGalley:



Funny how I always say that I'm not a fan of samplers, but now I have three samplers of various novels... haha.


From the Baltimore Book Festival:

See my recap HERE! But I went to the Baltimore Book Festival on Friday, and had a blast! I met Jennifer L. Armentrout (again), Marissa Meyer, Cheryl Klam, Diana Peterfreund (again), and many bloggers! I have a giveaway! But here are the books I came back with:


An ARC of Etherworld by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam (OMG CHERYL BROUGHT THIS WITH HER SPECIFICALLY FOR ME OMG!!!)


Etherworld was the only book that I really "brought back", since it was the only one I didn't have going into the festival. Cheryl is such a sweetie, and brought the book with her, specifically for me! Thank you so much, Cheryl!!


See the full recap HERE! The Festival was sooo much fun. I won't be attending Saturday (the blogger panel and blogger dinner) or Sunday, unfortunately. But Friday was AMAZING, as it is every year!

  4. Great books this week! You've reminded me that I really need to read Elusion, I kept meaning to and then reading other stuff. I saw your Baltimore Festival post, it looked like a ton of fun!

  10. I love historical romance too but have yet to read an Elizabeth Hoyt novel. I think I've heard mixed things? I love the cover and title of that one though!
    Happy reading, Alyssa! <3

    1. This one is the UK version - the UK publisher has been sending me books, but I'm in the USA. Whatever, I'm not complaining! If they don't care, I don't either! Thank you, Rachel ^_^

  15. I stopped myself from requesting Ensnared since it'll just make me want to read the whole thing now, haha. This is why I stay away from samplers.

    1. LOL yeah... That's exactly why I don't read samplers. Except now I have three. LOL

  17. Yay for that extra copy of Zodiac! That one looks amazing! Enjoy your new books. :)

  18. Awww, it looks like you had such a good time! I wish we had something like this near me! I think you secretly like samplers. :) It's so hard to start reading a book and not be able to read the whole thing, especially when it's something you want SO BADLY. Oh wellsies. :)

    I hope you're having a wonderful week, Alyssa!!

    1. I secretly/not-so-secretly hate samplers... thanks, Rachel!

  19. Haha, it's totally because publishers are sticking up samplers of the most exciting books instead of just not putting up anything for those ;-). Oo I wonder if that's what my Penguin package on Monday will contain, that would be exciting :D
