Stacking the Shelves (#114)


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, February 22nd to Saturday, February 28th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you, Emma! This completes one trade, a step closer to my Kasie West ARC collection!

An ARC of Forged by Erin Bowman (unsolicited)

I already have Magonia and Forged, and I didn't LOVE The Taking; never heard of Endangered.  Empire of Night was the only one I requested, and I'll be reviewing it on Tuesday! Thank you for all of this, Harper!


From NetGalley:


Mania by J.R. Johansson

I liked Insomnia a lot, and Paranoia was okay... but I definitely want to continue this series!


The Shattered Court by M.J. Scott

Eeee! I have been aching to read this one! Fantasy! Lovely cover! 


From Amazon:




Hey, it was free! Plus, I love Gena's books!


I barely slept at all this week! Seriously, a lot of three- and four-hour nights of sleep this week... but I churned out a ton of work and I feel pretty great about it all (despite feeling even more sleep-deprived than before). I hope everyone is doing well! How was your week? :)

  2. Ooooh, cannot wait to see what you go from Harper!
    I do hope you'll manage to get some sleep this weekend at home!
    I also got approved for Mania, cannot wait to see what will happen now, because like you, Paranoia was a bit more meh for me, but I need to know what will happen now!

    1. Officially updated! And I hope so too, but that's doubtful. Two more weeks until spring break O_O I didn't enjoy Paranoia as much as I'd hoped, but I'm hoping things will close out well with Mania!

  5. Ahh! Hope you get some sleep this weekend! I never understood how people can function like that! Let alone staying up so late to do whatever it is that needs doing!

    And ooh, this is the second time I am seeing The Shattered Court and I am loving that cover! Is this a new series? Like a first in? Standalone? Just wondering if there's an earlier title I need to look at first!

    Happy Reading!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I honestly don't know how I do it either. Throw in the fact that I don't drink coffee/caffeine. Wheeee...

      And it IS a new series! I've never read anything by the author. I can't to read this one though!

      Thank you so much, Jessica!

  7. The cover for Shatter Court is gorgeous! West writes the best contemporary romances :)

    I didn't know that you had an ARC collection... I usually keep my ARCs too, unless I"m going to a signing. I hope you love them all Alyssa!

    1. I hope it's as good as its cover belies! And I only do ARC collections of some series, not many at all. West, Silver, Bowman, Tucholke, Hocking, Richards... well, that IS a lot. LOL

  13. Love the cover of The Shattered Court. I'll be on the lookout for your review. I've not heard of this one I don't think. YAY HARPER. And I hope Public Enemies is good. The cover change breaks my heart. I love the packaging of Rook! I love Sharon Cameron so can't wait to read that one. Enjoy!

  18. Oh, I hear you on the sleep deprivation! And this week is only going to be worse, I fear! Hope you are able to get more sleep. I am so excited for Rook! Magonia wasn't really my favorite, but I do hope you enjoy all of these! Have a great week, and get some rest ;)

    1. For me as well - these next two weeks are going to SUCK O_O But then spring break is mid-March, and I'll be getting my wisdom teeth pulled, so at least there is some sort of low-key laziness to that? Anyway, thank you so much, Shannon! You rock <3
