Stacking the Shelves (#117)


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, March 15th to Saturday, March 21st?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you, Penguin!



I've never heard of this one... does anyone want to read it?



I LOVED this book! I've read it, I have the ARC, and I got this via trade to have a matching set!


From NetGalley:



Whoop whoop! I loved Stolen Songbird!


From Edelweiss:




A new series by McGarry... hopefully it's good!


From Amazon:



$0.99 sale! I loved It Started With A Scandal.



Errr... well... sale?



Wellllll... this is one of Racquel's favorites, and it was on sale... hehe


Avon has a bajillion romance novels on sale! Some of my favorites of all time. Go check it out! And for a list of historical romance novels on sale - HERE!


So I had the surgery on Monday! Everything went well, and the recovery has been successful, so far. I had the followup appointment on Friday, and my surgeon says I'm healing well, despite still being in a lot of pain. 

This week has been rough, but hey, it's just spring break, right? -_- In any case, I'm so thankful for no infections. But I miss FOOD! Chocolate! I won't be back to solid foods for a while. BUT. Everything has been going well, and I'll be back in school on Monday!

  1. Great haul! I bought Stolen Songbird last week because so many people have been raving about it. Seriously every blog I visit is talking about it. I'm pretty excited to read it! Enjoy all the new books!

    1. YAY! It's really great! I only recently read it myself, honestly. But succumbing to peer pressure is a good thing, sometimes!

      Thank you!

  2. Great news that your surgery and recovery are going well! Chocolate deprivation is the worst.

    Wowsers! Nice haul this week. Julie Ann Long's books look enticing. I haven't read one yet, but I have one that was gifted to me when I get around to it.

  5. YAY for the surgery going well and you recovering! No eating chocolate sounds like the most horrible thing ever, but at least you can drink some hot chocolate!
    Hooray for books on sale and for the Kindle so no worries about them taking space! ;)
    And a big YAY for Hidden Huntress! I'm having the hardest time not ignoring the rest of my ARCs and reading that one!!

    1. I'm glad nothing terrible happened! It's still less than a week since the surgery was completed, but I think the worst is over.

      I hope you love Hidden Huntress too, Pili! That will be my May Pili-pushed novel :D

  6. Nice haul! I hope you enjoy them all. I can't wait to read Nowhere But Here. I love everything Katie writes! I was fortunate enough to have dinner with her a few weeks ago. She's really great! Have a great week, Alyssa! My STS

  8. Hey, lady! I hope you're not feeling so sore today! (But you have my permission to continue eating ice cream as much as you'd like :P)

    Lovely new stack of books! I got Hidden Huntress and Nowhere But Here as well - I'm super excited for both! I'll be on the lookout for what you think of First There Was Forever - that's cool that they sent you a finished copy!

    1. I will be ALL THE ICE CREAM TONIGHT ^_^ I hate taking these pain meds so whenever I do, I'm like, ICE CREAM TIME :D

      And thanks! I hope you love NBH and HH! I think I will be reading FTWF in a few weeks. It was on my TBR list (though I didn't request it), so, why not!

  11. Great haul, Alyssa! I received a few of these this week also. I'm SOOOO excited for HIDDEN HUNTRESS. I LOVED STOLEN SONGBIRD so much, it was my favorite book last year. I'm rereading STOLEN SONGBIRD now to jump into HIDDEN HUNTRESS hopefully next!

    I'm SO glad your surgery went well and that your life's starting to get back to normal! :)

    Here's my STS:

  14. Oh, OUCH! I am happy you can put that experience behind you and get healed up. Thank goodness for nice cold ice cream. Not the greatest way to spend spring break, so I am sending you lots of hugs. You hauled in a big pile of books. The bare chested guy books you young ones love make me chuckle. When I was in my 20s I read a series of books about naughty airline stewardesses. That is how long ago it was that that were still called a stewardess. Lol.

  15. Great haul. I'm envious of your copy of Nowhere But Here. Like you say, hope it's good.

    1. Check it out on Edelweiss! And personally, I'm wary of McGarry's books - they all start to sound the same, you know?

  17. Surgery?! I missed knowing this! I'm glad to see everything went well though! I hope it was a minor one? It sounds like maybe you had your tonsils out? Well, no matter the case- ice cream is a must! ;)

    Yay for us getting Hidden Huntress and Nowhere But Here! I hope we both enjoy them! Look at all those historical romances from Avon! I may have to go peruse your list... :D Have a great week hun and a speedy recovery!

    1. Four wisdom teeth, actually. And I have been eating ice cream every night! It's actually the only thing I've managed to it, besides soup. I think I've lost weight - weight I can't afford to lose O_O

      And you should definitely check out some of JAL's historical romance novels! I recommend her upcoming release, It Started With a Scandal :)

      Thank you so much! <3

    1. Thank you!

      I see you got it as well - I hope you love it! I'm a little more cautious because I haven't loved all of her books in the past, but I've liked a few of them!

  19. I LOVED Nowhere But Here!! I was so happy when I got an arc at ALA Midwinter. I hope you like it too :D

  21. I'm sorry you are still in pain :-( Glad the surgery went well! I'm so curious about Hidden Huntress. I'm trying to avoid e-arcs but I maybe should have requested that one. Very curious to hear what you think.

  23. I was invited to review Harrison, but I passed since it's horror and the cover was too weird for me. Now I'm curious about it (but not enough to read it!) Nowhere But Here!!! I can't wait for this one. Enjoy them all!

  28. Hope you get to feeling better soon. So glad I haven't had to deal with that wisdom tooth problem. I only had my upper two, and one wasn't ever going to be a problem, so I didn't have to worry about it. I haven't heard of a few of your books, but I'll be going to Goodreads to check them out soon! Great haul!
