Stacking the Shelves (#119)


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 29th to Saturday, April 4th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

There's actually about six or seven boxes/packages at home... and I won't be going home this weekend (on Easter weekend, no less). But my parents are coming to the school, so they may or may not bring my massive haul. If they do, I'll post pictures on Twitter on Saturday evening or Sunday.

Edited!



Thank you, Mary! I needed this one to complete my duo set :)



Thank you, Lorelie! So nice of her to give away this one :)



Thank you, Amazon! I feel a bit bad... I binge-read the first two books a few weeks ago, and now I have the third, whereas most people had to wait years! Oh well O_O



Thank you, Penguin Random!



Thank you, Penguin Random! All three are unfamiliar (unsolicited), but that could be a good series to binge-read!



Thank you, Harper! I requested The Fill-In Boyfriend, and the requested are unsolicited. The covers are great!



Thank you, Penguin Random! Such a beautiful package. And there is a cookie!


From NetGalley:



I've not read anything by this author, but I'm excited to give this book a try!


From Edelweiss:



I LOVE THIS AUTHOR! Her Scandalous series is soooo good. I'm on the blog tour for this book, so look out for this book's review in a few weeks!


Sooo... this week was really bad. I got some disappointing news on Sunday, and then even more disappointing news (unrelated to the first set) on Tuesday... it was a snowball effect and my mental health took a nosedive. I'm better now but I wish things were different. This week was just awful. Luckily I had lovely books to occupy my mind ;) How was your week?

    1. Time heals all wounds, I suppose. And my dad already came and dropped off the books! They're still coming tomorrow, but I think they knew I needed the pick-me-up.

      Thank you, Carina! I hope the same for you!

  5. Oh that sucks. Hate when bad news just keeps on piling up. It's taxing on the mental state of mind! Hope your parents remember your books, they are the essentials after all!

    Hope you enjoy your new reads here and have a GREAT Easter!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. Oh, no. I hope next week is better. I've heard really good things about Every Last Word, so hopefully that takes your mind off of things. If not, a little romance should.

    A lot of people seem to be excited for Every Last Word. I don't know if I want to read it, but reviews will probably change my mind. Happy reading!

I still need to hurry and binge read mine too! LOL. I'm sorry last week didn't go so great for you. If you ever need someone to talk to, you know I'm here. <3 I hope this week goes better!

  14. Great haul! I can't wait for Off the Page because Between the Lines is one of my all time favorite books. I'll be looking forward to your review of it. :)

    1. Wow! I'll have to make room for both then. I haven't read Between the Lines!

  15. Cookie! I hope that helps a bit with the disappointing news. I dislike that kind of news; it's always...disappointing. But cookies help. And silly kids movies. :)

    The cold's still messing with my head, so limited reading, but I'm finally watching some of the stuff that's been sitting on my Netflix list for years. :)

  16. I'm so sorry to hear about your bad week, Alyssa:-( Boo to that! I hope things get better for you soon. But your books look fabulous, and I'm drooling over Tracked, it sounds really good. Take care and do something nice for yourself:-)

  18. First, I am SO sorry about your bad week. I hope you are okay, and that things will get better soon. Hugs!

    The books. First, I read Angelfall like, I don't know, 20 years ago it seems? So yes, I am basically drooling over your End of Days, and I want to knock on the door of Amazon and beg for one. And Every Last Word looks so good too! I hope you enjoy the new books, and I do hope this week is much, much better for you :)

  19. I hope things are looking better in your life. Thank goodness for books, especially when we can't be with family and close friends. I don't think I got anything this week, but last week I got a special price on the first three Fairyland ebooks as a bundle and I have wanted to read those since I read the series prequel novella. I also recieved a giveaway prize of a Compulsion hardcover. I was a little disappointed because it was supposed to be personalized and it was just generically signed. I had had a terrible couple of weeks too, and when I opened it and saw it wasn't personalized I sobbed. Lol. I guess that just shows how into books we all get.

    1. I actually told my mom, I read books to escape, because book characters' lives are often much better than my own! -_-

      Congrats on all of the wins! And you know, I got a Compulsion copy from the author, and I thought it would be personalized too... come to think of it, I don't know if it was even signed (I thought it was supposed to be both). Oh well. It totally okay to care that much, in my opinion. Expectations are a good thing! Except when you're disappointed :/

  20. Jealous of the first book you show, and also the new Jodi Picoult book. I hate those bad things happening. I'm kind of in a state of perpetual will something happen or not! I'd say the not knowing is horrible, but at least I still can have hope until further news. I hope this is a better week for you, enjoy all your pretty new reads!

  21. That's a fantastic haul! I'm jealous. I am particularly looking forward to Every Last Word, Off the Page, The Fill-In Boyfriend and The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak.
    Enjoy! I'll be looking forward to your reviews.

    1. Thanks! I've already posted a review of The Fill-In Boyfriend. Every Last Word will be reviewed most likely at the end of May. The others you mentioned... I didn't ask for them and I won't have time to read them so I won't be reviewing them!
