Stacking the Shelves (#127)


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, May 24th to Saturday, May 30th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you, Simon and Schuster! I LOVED Of Metal and Wishes.



I won this from Jay and Amie! Thank you, lovelies! I hear there is a hardcover ARC too... the collector in me is plotting. LOL


From Edelweiss:



Already read this one and LOVED it! It's rare that I throw my reading schedule and starting reading a book I just got, but this one was a no-brainer!


No BEA for me, but I worked and started my lab research! I also signed the lease for my new apartment. Now my usual dose of paranoia has set in. *bites nails*

How was everyone's week? Can you believe June is on MONDAY!? Where does the time go? :o

  1. So much self control! I can't believe it's gonna be June too! So soon and I'm in the same boat with you on not going to BEA. Although I'm seeing all these pictures of arcs and trying not to be jealous;P

    1. I'm trying really hard to stop accepting so many! And it's okay, we were in the majority :)

  5. I still need the first Sarah Fine book. Lovely that you got the next.

    Congrats on starting lab and getting your new digs. Definitely scary, but its new adventure, too. Just a quiet week of work and chores for me which of course included some reading.

    1. I should definitely check out this duology! Or her Guards of the Shadowlands trilogy. Or the Scan duology. Or her adult series (Marked, Claimed, etc.)! :D

      Thank you so much, Sophia! I hope you have a great week to come!

    1. Aww! I was really lucky to win it, I think. The USA publishers printed two types of ARCs so I'm definitely looking for the hardcover ARC too.

      Thank you!

  9. Dreams and Rust has such a magical sound to it - that's the one I have my eye on. But I should read Metal and Wishes first. I agree, the month went so fast!

  13. No BEA for me either. Dirty Thoughts looks interesting. I'll be looking out for your thoughts on this one and a few hot teasers too, I imagine.

  15. Apartment? YAY! I loved school so much more once I lived off campus. I guess you get some distance from it?

    Oh my gosh, you've reminded me I need to request Of Dreams and Rust! I only read Of Metal and Wishes last week and it was FANTASTIC. And Wen's dress, so preeeeetty. And Illuminae! I totally get the collector compulsion--whoever heard of a hardcover ARC? SO COOL.

    I hope you have an awesome week, Alyssa!!

    1. Really? Interesting! And I'm actually really close to the school hehehe.

      Definitely try your hand at getting Of Dreams and Rust! It's been forever since I've read Of Metal and Wishes - I loved it!

      I'll be looking to get a hardcover ARC! The softcover one is awesome, but I definitely want a hardcover one too. LOL

      Thank you, Rachel! You too!

  18. YAY FOR THE APARTMENT LEASE!! *does happy dance*
    And yay for an ARC of Illuminae and Of Dreams & Rust!! I still need to read the first book in that series but I hope I can get to it soon, once I'm done with most of the moving!
    How's the work at the lab research going? So exciting I hope!!

    1. I recommend OMAW soooo much! Seriously, Sarah Fine is amazing. I hope the move is going well! Research is progressing! Not sure if this is EXACTLY what I'm interested in (yet?), but I'm enjoying it, and am grateful for the opportunity :)
