Stacking the Shelves (#137)


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, August 2nd to Saturday, August 8th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



The only one I requested was The Immortal Heights! I cannot wait to read it, though I have eARCs of that one and Ice Like Fire already. The other two, meh, may give away or trade!



This was a trade! Thank you SO MUCH, Sondra! Now my collection is complete (see below)!



So sweet of St. Martin's Griffin to send me a paperback! I loved this series immensely.


From NetGalley:



I cannot remember for the life of me who pushed me to download this one from NetGalley - thank you, blogger friend! This will be my first Vincent read.



I can't resist Elle Kennedy's books! Berkeley/NAL auto-approval is a dangerous thing, guys ;)


MINE MINE MINE. I love Katee's books!


A collection...


My Jenny Han collection! Two ARCs, two hardcovers.



How was your week? :)

  1. I loved Immortal Heights. It was a really good conclusion to the series. I'm looking forward to reading Ice Like Fire although I've been putting it off for triangle reasons.
    So I got Claimed too thinking I would love it since I love Elle Kennedy's books, but it was too much erotica for me. There was voyeurisms, anal and threesomes. That goes way past what I enjoy in romance books, sadly and I didn't care much for the plot. I hope you have better luck with it though.
    Happy reading and have a good weekend, Alyssa! :)

    1. Good to hear! I've been sitting on an eARC for quite some time, Ice Like Fire too. Thank you for the warning about Claimed! Given our Twitter conversation, I'm not sure I'll end up reading it -_- Wish I had known about it before downloading it! UGH!

      Thank you, Nick!

  2. OOoh nice! I can't wait to read Ice Like Fire! I plan to attend an event next month where it's supposed to be on sale 2 weeks early! So hopefully I'll get it then! LOL! Now if I'll have time to read it right away will be the question! Heehee!

    Menagerie! Seeing a lot of that one today! I also picked that one up and started reading it a few days ago! It's very intriguing so far and I'm definitely liking it!

    Hope you enjoy all the wonderful new reads!


    My STS will be up tomorrow, be sure to stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I remember seeing your review! I'm just happy I got an ARC because I needed an ARC to complete the set.

      Thank you!

  4. That's cool that you finished your collection. I almost clicked the Elle Kennedy, but had already had a stack of 'clicks'. Oh yes, auto approval through the publisher is a danger thing. LOL!

  8. I got Crystal Kingdom too this week too! (I forgot to add it to my post) and it looks so pretty next to the others. I loved The White Rose and Ice Like Fire was a little on the meh side for me. I have high hop[es for book three though. You haven't read anything from Rachel Vincent?? I love her books. She is one of the authors who got me into reading!

    Great haul Alyssa, I hope you enjoy all your new editions!

      Thank you, Amber!

    1. It really was though! I mean, how many people went to TLA?! Not that many! And ahh, yaaass, I'm not the only poor soul who has not read an Rachel Vincent novels! Popping our Vincent cherries lol

      Happy reading!

  13. I definitely have my eye on Menagerie. I hope you enjoy! I have Claimed, I just need to find time to get to it. And I totally agree, Berkley auto approval can be DANGEROUS. I got His Lover to Protect, too. I'm really excited about that one!

    Happy reading!

    That's a Wrap Weekly [3]

  17. Ugh, Nick told me about Claimed and I'm glad I didn't download (procrastination pays off sometimes). I don't mind sex in books but this like it's over the top.
    I'd rather re-read The Deal :)

    1. I wish I had known earlier! I am sooooo not reading it. LOL.

      I need to read The Deal!

  18. Nice stack! I got the same books from Harper - The Immortal Heights is a fantastic series ender, and I've been enjoying Amy Ewing's series (despite the bad reviews).
    Happy reading to you!
