Stacking the Shelves (#134)


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, July 12th to Saturday, July 18th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



AHHH! THANK YOU, @Celeste_pewter!


From NetGalley:



Currently reading this! My first Kleypas novel.



I got a copy from the First Reads program last week (paid for it with pretty much all of my points!), but this one was a widget from the publisher! When the publisher sends you something, you thank them and accept it :D Thanks, Penguin!

P.S. - I have my review of What I Thought Was True posted, and there is a giveaway!


From Edelweiss:



I like this series - Boomerang and Rebound were pretty great!



So excited to read this one! Thank you, HMH!


An Inheritance of Ashes by Leah Bobet

Thank you, HMH!


From Amazon:



Free prequel! Reading the full-length novel soon :D


THE ROSE SOCIETY! That is all.

  2. I'm excited to read Bounce! I've loved the books in this series, so I'm sad that this might be the last book.
    I'm also currently reading The Boy Most Likely To and I'm not sure how I feel about it so far. I feel like I've read similar stories in NA books. :/
    Brown-Eyed Girl is Kleypas' weakest novel to date, I think! So you should definitely give her HR books a try, especially The Devil in Winter!
    Happy reading!!

    1. I hope you enjoy it! Though I'm sad you didn't *love* TBMLT. I really don't like many NA novels so if you're comparing it to one... o.o

      I didn't like Brown-Eyed Girl much! So you saying that makes me feel a bit better. What a way to start with Kleypas, right? :/ I will look up The Devil in Winter!

      Thank you, Nick!

    1. LOL! I read it I believe in September last year. It's been even longer for me!

  4. I've yet to read anything by Huntley Fitzpatrick even though I have 2 of her books on my shelves. I need to get on that... soon. Since contemporaries are my favorites I'm sure I'll love them.

  6. I am so curious what you'll think of An Inheritance of Ashes. I've read it and enjoyed it. I don't think it'll be a fave for a good amount of folks since it's slow paced. I hope you like it! Yaaaay to Marie Lu!! Enjoy the books

  8. Great haul, Alyssa. I got Bounce, as well. I read it. I wasn't impressed. I enjoyed Rebound the most. Bounce was a bit disjointed for me. I'm curious to see how you like it. Love the pic of you with The Rose Society! Have a totally terrific weekend! My STS

  9. yay for Brown Eyed Girl, I am unsure if I will request it, because I kinda want to own it!! I just LOVE Lisa Kleypas and that series is amazing, so thrilled she is finishing it up, especially before she gets back to historical's.

    1. Thank you! But I recommend against this particular LK novel. It was disappointing! Or maybe it was just see me. See Nick's comment above!

  19. EEEEEE THE ROSE SOCIETY! AN INHERITANCE OF ASHES! EEEEEEP. GO ALYSSSA. TBMLT ended up not being for me, which broke my heart :( I definitely need to check out Boomerang! Everyone has been SO excited about BOUNCE lately and I hadn't heard of the series before this week!

    1. I read it too - and I gave it three stars. I didn't love Boomerang (three stars too), but I liked Rebound, and I have a good feeling about Bounce.

  20. I agree- THE ROSE SOCIETY!! That is fabulous! I also got The Boy Most Likely To, but didn't see it in enough time to add it, so next week! Thanks for the tip about Voice of Gods! I am excited to read that, as I have Legacy of Kings!

    Hope you enjoy all of these, I cannot wait to hear what you think about The Rose Society!! Have a wonderful week :)

    Happy reading Alyssa!

  22. Awesome haul Alyssa! I'm looking forward to An Inheritance of Ashes.
    I've read other books by Kleypas, but mostly historical romances and they are okay. I hope you love them all!

    1. The historical romance novels are okay? Like, just okay? Or good okay? I'm nervous lololol. Thank you!

  23. Great haul, Alyssa. These are all new to me. Hope you enjoy reading them all.

  24. OMG! Got to get the prequel to Eleanor Herman series! Loved the first book, Legacy of Kings. I'm reading The Young Elites right now, and am not sure that I'm loving it as much as I did Legend. But it's not bad. Great haul this week!

  25. So sorry for the late reply! I was on vacation and had crappy wifi. Better late then never, huh? :D

    I LOVED Bounce. It was my first Noelle August book and now I am hooked. I can't wait until the other two books come in at the library. I wasn't a fan of TYE, I actually DNFed it. But I want to give it another shot because I have major cover lust for The Rose Society. Enjoy all your books Alyssa! <3

    1. Psshh, girl. I hope the vacation was fun! And so glad to hear that about Bounce! I didn't love Boomerang, but liked Rebound. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy The Young Elites much! But hey, maybe The Rose Society might be super SUPER amazing and you might love it if you read it... ;)

      Thank you!
