Stacking the Shelves (#154)


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, November 29th to Saturday, December 5th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Ooo! Thank you, Macmillan! I didn't *love* The Vault of Dreamers, but I was intrigued enough to want to read this one. I LOVE the black cover design!



Borrowing this from Liza at Reading with ABC - THANK YOU!


A holiday card from Amber and Jessica at The Book Bratz

Officially the cutest card EVER! Thank you, ladies!


A Waterwitch Babes keychain from Carine (fellow Waterwitch)

Thank you, Carine! My fellow Waterwitches are really rocking the swag. Ladies, you are fabulous!


And that's my week in books! I also got a few packages from my online Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping. And I'll be mailing my #TBTBSanta box. I love the holiday season!

  5. Love the cover of The Rule of Mirrors. I didn't finish The Vault of Dreamers, though. I got about 1/2 way. I just couldn't get into it. Perhaps I should try again. I hope you enjoy your books. Have a great weekend, Alyssa! My STS

  9. Oh wow, that card is so cute!! I still haven't read Vault of Dreamers but it is on my list. I didn't realize the sequel was out there. Enjoy your books Alyssa and have a fab weekend!

  10. I haven't heard of that Kelley Armstrong one, I'll have to go add it on goodreads lol.

  11. I have several books by Kelley Armstrong because they sound so amazing but have shamefully not yet picked one up but Sea of Shadows is top of the list to try (I think Forest of Ruin is in that series anyways) so I may have to ask my read along friend if we can bump it up in the listing! So cute other items for sure, so sweet :) Good haul! My haul

    1. Sea of Shadows is one of my favorites! Definitely binge-read the series if you get a chance, Eve. :D Thank you!

  12. Awesome haul. That was very sweet of Liza to send you that arc. Plus the christmas card was cute. I'm reading Truthwitch atm. I hope you love all of your new books.

  16. Yay for Forest of Ruin. I was told it does NOT have a triangle, so I am definitely binging this series! Can't wait to see what you think of it.

    1. Yeah honestly I'm not sure where this love triangle business is coming from, I don't remember thinking about a love triangle in the series. :O

  17. I am so jealous of those top two books! I may have to write to Macmillan for an ARC of Rule of Mirrors. Like you I didn't LOVE the first one, but I liked it enough to want to know what happens next. Great haul!
