Stacking the Shelves (#130)


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, June 14th to Saturday, June 20th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:


Tons of Rachel Caine swag!

None of these were wins! The hardcover copy is from the publisher, the two ARCs are from the author and author's assistant. Basically, the universe really, really wants me to read these books, without me even asking o_O



LOL. I already have an ARC from HMH. Why would they send me another? Another book that the universe wants to make sure I read!



A trade from Jen! I haven't read any of the books in the series (and I don't really want to, to be honest), but the series is a Pili-Pushed series, so I shall! Especially since the series has been optioned for TV series, woah.


For Review:



For the blog tour!


Just another week in the lab and at work! How was everyone's week? :)

  1. Ahhh Vengeance Road! They never denied or accepted me on EW, so I don't really know what to do now lol. Maybe send an email...It's quite funny that you received so many copies of Ink & Bone! It demands to be read! :D

    1. I hope they do something on Edelweiss for you! That way, you'll have a definitive answer. I'll definitely give away my second ARC (maybe both), fear not! And same with Ink and Bone!

  2. Ooo, looking forward to reading all of these (the YA ones)! And hahaha, the universe definitely does want you to read these books :P I read SHATTER ME ages ago, and I enjoyed it a lot, but I don’t know why I didn’t pick up book 2...a re-read is definitely in order before the TV show comes out! Happy reading :D

  4. Ink and Bone looks amazing. Sometimes that happens with books and publishers. Vengenance Road is going to be awesome.

  5. That's so cool that they sent you so many copies of ink and bone! I personally really, really, REALLY did not like the shatter me series. I probably wouldn't even watch the show myself..

    1. I'm only reading them because a friend recommends them, and I had the first two books already! I doubt I'll be watching the TV show, I don't watch TV lol

  6. You're so lucky! I've been waiting for Ink & Bone for months now.
    And ugh. The shatter me series was such a drag. I'd say hope you enjoy but... Y'know.

  7. Looks like a nice haul there! Lately, I've been racking up suspense novels for my pile, but I know it won't be long before I'm back to stacking tons of romance stories. Happy Saturday to you! Hugs...

  15. What great books to get duplicates of! I have a HC of Ink and Bone on the way I believe. I wish it would have been the arc though! I hope it'll be amazing. I've read VR and loved it. I hope you enjoy it too! Have a great week.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Great STS! Sometimes I got multiple copies of the same ARC too! LOL I'm on the Dream of You blog tour too! It was really great, and a super quick read too! Have a great weekend Alyssa :)

  17. Ooh, nice haul. I'm expecting Dream of You to be awesome.

    Hope you're having a fab weekend :)

  18. Ooh, you have Ignite Me! Its my favorite books in the series, and I'm pretty sure you'll love it once you read it. I'm really looking forward to Dream of You, I have a feeling its going to be an amazing read.

    Great haul and I hope you enjoy all your books!

    1. Really?? I'm not particularly looking forward to reading the Shatter Me series, but I promised myself (and a friend) that I would. Thank you, Aseel!

  20. Vengeance Road sounds like a great read. Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful week.

  21. I absolutely love the Shatter Me series! I'm really curious about how you'll react to the books. There are so many people that LOVE them, but then there are those who absolutely can't stand it (because of the writing and romance). You'll either love it or hate it. Happy reading!

  23. I really enjoyed the Shatter Me series. Maybe you'll like it more than you expect. I had no idea it was optioned for a TV show though.

    1. The ARC and the hardcover have the same spine! It's so great, I love it :)

  27. It seems like Vengeance Road is everywhere lately, I hope is as good as all the hype indicates. I can't wait to get my hands on Ink & Bone. Have you read Rachel Caine before? I read the first seven or so of her Morganville Vampires series and they were pretty good. Happy reading!

    1. I hope so too - I'm honestly not a fan of Westerns, but I have mostly enjoyed Bowman's books. I've not read any of Caine's books before Ink and Bone! Probably won't change that, but I liked Ink and Bone a lot. Thank you!

  28. Omigosh I love the Shatter Me series and I really hope you do, too! I get why you wouldn't want to start it, I didn't either, but I ended up loving it.
    And I'm excited for Vengeance Road, hope that's a great read.
    Happy reading, Alyssa :D

    1. I hope so! I'm crossing my fingers because I'd hate to be disappointed. But I will happily binge-read them since I have all three.

      Thank you, Richa!
