Stacking the Shelves (#100)


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!

First, can we take a moment to marvel at the fact that this is my ONE HUNDREDTH Stacking the Shelves post?! And it's a pretty good one, I'll say! Check out all of my past STS posts HERE.


So, what did I get in the week of Sunday, November 16th to Saturday, November 22nd?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



I actually got both of these last week, but was unable to physically open the packages until Sunday (the 16th). So, here they are!



Never heard of this one. Surprise from Perseus books - thank you!



Thank you SO MUCH, Martina!!


From NetGalley:



I loved Enchanted! I admit, I have not read Hero. Hopefully I won't need to do so...


From Edelweiss:



This series is so great! I really enjoyed I Married A Duke and I Adored A Lord.



IT HAS BEEN 2+ YEARS SINCE I'D FIRST HEARD OF THIS ONE. 2+ years since I read Entwined. I NEED THIS!!



This isn't a sequel novel, but I loved Hodge's debut, Cruel Beauty!



I was literally JUST re-reading Through To You on Friday... loved that book so much. I'll give this book a shot!


One hundred STS posts later... wow. Well, I'm home! I left the university on Friday evening and I'll return on Sunday the 30th in the evening. A much-needed break, if I may say so myself! Though I'll be working like a crazy person for most of it... that's okay though. I think I need the break especially from certain people... my gilipollas boy, for one.

*squishes everyone*

  1. ooh nice haul!! I wasn't a fan of Defy, but maybe Ignite is good. I can't wait to see what you think of it! Illusionarium looks really good. Enjoy your books :D

      Thank you!

  5. OOOOh very nice! I got Dearest myself this week too! Was out yesterday so didn't seen Crimson Bound go up! Might request it despite the likelihood that I will be rejected. I seriously do not get EW! The pubs reject me all the time, but then the same pubs approve me on NG. So very frustrating! lol!

    Hope you enjoy all you lovely new reads!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  6. 100 StS posts! That's impressive! I haven't DL Crimson Bound yet but I'm sure I will. I was a bit iffy on Cruel Beauty (loved the writing though) so I'm not sure yet. I downloaded Illusionarium too! I started it last night and so far so good. I loved Entwined too. Yay! I hope you get some rest and enjoy the books.

  10. I liked Defy enough to be curious about Ignite. :) I wasn't a huge fan of Cruel Beauty but I am a little curious of Crimson Bound. I hope you enjoy all your new reads.

    Congrats on 100 STS's!

  21. Yay for Ignite! I'm looking forward to your review on that one. I recently finished it and was really happy with it. It seemed better than Defy, especially in the plot. Those Harper e-arcs look really good. I'm hoping Heat of the Moment turns out to be really good.

    Enjoy your new books and your break!
