Stacking the Shelves (#156)


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, December 13th to Saturday, December 19th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

I WAS SUPPOSED TO (FINALLY) BE HOME TODAY! I've been hibernating at uni for two weeks, for finals. Something came up so I'll be home TONIGHT! I'll edit (with all the 45485897 packages that are apparently waiting for me). 

For now, here's what was at my apartment --



Thank you, Elissa! I cannot wait to read this sequel. :D



Unsolicited - thanks, Little Brown! 


Christmas cards and swag from Lisa, Melissa, and Charlene - thank you, ladies!

EDIT:

HERE WE GOOOOOO! I'm just going to post the pictures... you'll have to find the links yourselves (SORRY! It's too much!)


From Kelly, my #SecretWitch! THANK YOU! 


Thank you, Scholastic!


My Black Friday gift to myself, LOL.


Thank you, Harlequin!


Thank you, BHM!


Thank you, Scholastic!


TWO!? I knew about one... thank you so much, Random House!


Thank you, BN Teens blog! This is copy of Winter, Lunar Chronicles sweatshirt, Fierce Reads T-shirt, water bottle, pen, bag!


Finally... thank you, Katie, my #TBTBSanta. She got everything right! I am so lucky and so honored -- THANK YOU!

From Edelweiss:



Thank you, Simon and Schuster!

For Review:



From neither NetGalley nor Edelweiss - thank you, Penguin and First to Read!


I know, I was bad on Edelweiss, with Harper's recent upload. I'm telling myself that I have MONTHS to to read them. 

Thanks in advance to my Secret Santas (#TBTBSanta and #SecretWitch) - your gifts are at home and appreciated. I'll open everything and post on Twitter and here. I'll be free of this semester by Saturday night!
