Stacking the Shelves (#131)


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 21st to Saturday, June 27th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:


Chronicle Books tote bag
Bookmark (?)

THANK YOU, DEAREST KEL! She is amazing :)



Unsolicited - thank you so much, Penguin/Kathy Dawson Books!



I only asked for two this season, from Macmillan! My most heartfelt thanks, Mac lovelies <3



Thank you, Bethany! 



Unsolicited from Simon and Schuster - thank you! Completely not my thing so if anyone is interested, let me know.



Thank you, NAL!


A box of chocolate!

From the lovely Kimberley! THANK YOU! I love these so much, a good portion is already gone ;D She is the nicest person ever and I SO appreciate it!


From NetGalley:



Literally only reading this for the Age of Legends short story!



It seems unlikely that I'll get an ARC of this one, so I went ahead and downloaded the eARC from NetGalley!


For Review:



THANK YOU, PENGUIN! This is from the First Reads program. I'd prefer a print ARC but at this point I will take anything to read this one! I have 40 days before it expires so... *digs in*


What a week in books! It turned out to be pretty amazing. I go home on Fridays so I never know what is waiting for me until Fridays! It's like Christmas every week. Gah! This week was pretty great, no stomach pains or general issues. I will cherish this peace while I have it!

  7. YAY SoC! Isn't that box wonderful? I am about 50 pages from the end and I'm sad that I've read it so fast. I wanted to savor it but yeah, I kept needing to know what was going to happen more. I still haven't gotten my Macmillans (fear of it being lost). I only requested ONE. I can't believe that I restrained myself so much. Enjoy all the books!!

    1. I hope you love the whole thing! And hopefully you get Dreamstrider (I am betting money that that is the one you requested, eh?) - hopefully it's not lost in the mail!

  18. I mean...you know exactly what I'm going to say about Six of Crows. It's basically !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ooh, I ended up with First & Then this week too! It sounds soooo cute and I've already heard great things about it. And THE BOY MOST LIKELY TO!!!! I couldn't believe that I actually got something from First Reads. But it appears that I can't read it on my Kindle and now I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.

    What a fantastic haul! Hope you love all of them!

  24. Awesome haul Alyssa! I love those tote bags (I grabbed like three at BEA!) I need to start reading Six of Crows soon since Andye loved it. Suicide Notes sounds heartbreaking. Chocolates are always good.
