Stacking the Shelves (#106)


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, December 28th to Saturday, January 3rd?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



I have been aching to read The Sin Eater's Daughter! And Salt & Stone. I just won a signed ARC of Salt & Stone from Victoria on Twitter (before I knew I was getting an ARC from Scholastic), so I'll definitely be giving this one away in February!


First Stacking the Shelves post of 2015 - not bad! 2015 has gotten off to a great start for me :) After just two weeks, I'll be back at Hopkins for winter classes on Monday, so I might be less active than usual. This winter break has been wonderful - albeit short - and honestly, I'm pretty content at the moment :) *hugs everyone*

  1. Awesome haul. I love the covers for those two books. I really enjoyed Salt and Storm, so I hope you love Salt and Stone.

  5. Nice! I wonder if my copy of Salt and Stone is one the way then...just saw another blogger receive a copy! I'm on the tour and have a review to post for my day...so I kinda need the copy. Wonder how long I should wait before I go insane....

    ;) LOL! Happy Reading!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  6. Yay Salt & Stone! I requested it, but sadly never got a copy, which was strange since I got the first one... Oh well. I have plenty to read anyway. LOL. I do hope you enjoy it! The Sin Eater's Daughter caught my attention the other day so I'm really curious about how you're like it.

    Good luck with classes on Monday!

    1. I hope you DO get a copy, Jess! And dudeee, The Sin Eater's Daughter is supposed to be FABULOUS *crosses fingers* Let's hope!

      Thank you so much!

  7. Awesome haul! I received the same books! I already read SALT & STONE a while back, it was good, but I loved FIRE & FLOOD more. SALT & STONE didn't send that pulse of adrenaline through me like FIRE & FLOOD did. It seemed like their wasn't enough obstacles for them to go through. But it was still really good! But THE SIN EATER'S DAUGHTER, I have been DYING TO READ!!! I actually couldn't wait any loner, I'm reading it now. I'm only a couple pages in, but It started out pretty good!

    Here's my STS:

    1. I was the opposite - I read so much during the holidays! We didn't host any of the holidays this year (only Thanksgiving), so we didn't have as much work to do.

      Thank you!

  13. Sooooo, everyone has been talking about The Sin Eater's Daughter lately and I'm not really interested in it? I dunno - if so many people started talking about it, I might give it a chance.
    Hopkins already on Monday?! Girl, you are so dedicated. Have fun and good luck with winter classes!
