Stacking the Shelves (#157)


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 20th to Saturday, December 26th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you, Tor! You'll recall that Tor sent me an ARC a few months ago - I LOVED this book! One of my top ten of 2015.



Thank you, Harper! All unsolicited (nothing I requested for the Winter, and two I already have!), and I've already read Banished; these will be given away!


A Truthwitch t-shirt
A Truthwitch tote bag
A Truthwitch button
A Truthwitch pendant

Thank you, Sooz! My fellow Waterwitches and I won the last two quarters of Heists, and the t-shirt and tote bag were prizes for each heist. Sooz is amazing and generous and YOU ALL MUST READ TRUTHWITCH BECAUSE IT WAS QUITE GOOD!



Already read and loved this one! It'll probably go in the January giveaway.


Avon Coloring Book
Chocolate

This is the Avon Addicts package for the holidays! I've read When the Scot (I LOVED it so much!), but not the others. Thank you so much, Avon!


Holiday card from Penguin - thank you, Rachel!



Thank you, pub!


From Edelweiss:



Yaaasss, I LOVE Linden's Scandal series!


Busy week in books, despite it being a holiday week in the States! I got a lot of cool stuff for Christmas, including this guy:


(BB-8 pillow! I finally saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Tuesday and OMG YOU GUYS. OMG.)

  17. You got so many Truthwitch goodies! Fantasy isn't usually my favorite genre, but I've heard so many great things about Truthwitch and really enjoyed Something Strange and Deadly, so I'm definitely excited to read it. I loved When a Scot Ties the Knot, too! That series is so great. I hope you enjoy all of your books! :)
