Stacking the Shelves (#107)


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, January 4th to Saturday, January 10th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



FINALLY. My pre-order! I hate love triangles, but I loveeee this series.



Thank you, Victoria! I won this ARC from her. I'll be giving away my publisher-sent ARC soon!



I won this from Jaime! I already read Red Queen, and like Salt & Stone above, I have an ARC of The Sin Eater's Daughter from the publisher, so those will given away as well!


From NetGalley:



I like jinn-related books! There were others Macmillan books on NetGalley that I could have downloaded, but this one was the most pressing!


From Edelweiss:



I haven't read a book by this author, but Racquel (a.k.a. fellow HR fan) LOVES her, so this will be my first JAL novel!



I flat-out LOVE this series - Love and Other Scandals and It Takes a Scandal are really, really good!



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


Pretty awesome week! It was my first week of winter classes, and that is going well so far. Low on stress, and I get to work a lot (which means more $$$)! So I'm feeling pretty content right now. *side-eyes the future*

    1. Yuuuupppp, it's going to be pretty expensive, but I think I've found one I want! And OMG I was dyingggg when Jaime emailed me, because I really wanted TOQ and Ember! *flails*

      The Arcana Chronicles was always not a trilogy! It would have been nice but ehhh, more time to be in agony LOL

Cannot wait to read it :D I hope you will love them all sweetie. <3 Sigh. So many great books :) Happy reading Alyssa. <3 Dead of Winter. UGH. I own the first two books, but forgot to pre-order this one, and so happy about that. Have decided to never read the books, so will be selling my copies of the first two books :p I don't want them anymore. Sigh. Stupid love triangle :( I'm upset about it, hih. Anyway. Happy reading :D

    1. Ahhh! I hope you read all of them and enjoy them! And I know how you feel about the Arcana Chronicles - I LOVE the story but I'm sad about the love triangle... but it's like I can't stop reading the series because I want to know what happens, especially in terms of the romance!

  22. WHOA, Holy books!! Is the Arcana series good? I really want to read it, I stopped reading the first one for some reason... I loved Red Queen, I still need to read OQ and Ember. So jealous of Sin Eater!! :D yay, I hope you like Becoming Jinn :D Enjoy your books!

    1. I LOVED books one and two - I'll be reading book three next. Red Queen was great - I have not started The Orphan Queen or Ember. Or The Sin Eater's Daughter. The pains of reading chronologically LOL. Thank you!

  23. Oh you got Salt & Stone! And Dead of Winter! These books I'm dying to get my hands on! I hope you enjoy reading them. Can't wait to hear what your thoughts about them.

  24. Awesome haul, Alyssa! I just read Salt & Stone... really adored the first book, but didn't love this one as much. No triangle though!
    I'm so excited to see what you think of Last Year's Mistake! Really looking forward to that one.
    Yay for The Orphan Queen! Ember in Ashes and The Sin Eater's Daughter don't really interest me at this point.

    Happy reading!

  27. That's an amazing prize pack! I've heard great things about all of those books, and I'm especially looking forward to Red Queen :)

    I like the Arcana Chronicles series, too. I definitely prefer Aric over Jack. (I don't really like Jack.) I'm so curious to see what will happen in Dead of Winter. I hope you enjoy all of your books :)

    1. TEAM ARIC!! I'm hoping for a nice ending for him... though I think the author is pro-Jack, honestly. Ehhhh.

  29. Whoa, amazing haul! I am so excited for Salt & Stone, and The Sin Eater's Daughter (which I am forcing myself to wait a couple weeks to read but I want to read it NOW!), and An Ember in the Ashes, Red Queen, The Orphan Queen, Becoming Jinn... fine, I want to read them all ;)

    Also, I am really glad to hear that things have been less stressful for you, and I really hope that things continue to go well!
