Stacking the Shelves (#160)


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, January 10th to Saturday, January 16th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:


First In Line prize!

Including a First in Line tote bag, umbrella, buttons (13 of them!), and the four books (Steelheart, Everything, Everything, Another Day, and We Were Liars). Thank you so much, First in Line!



Thank you, Simon and Schuster! I loved this book.




I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH! HERE is my review, if you're curious. I won this copy from Thoughts of a Scot - thank you!


Awesome signed swag

Thank you, Carine! Have I stated how much I love her? She is the best!



Thank you, Michelle!


Keep YA Weird button

Thank you so much, Amber! I love it! <3



Thank you so much, Macmillan! I can't wait to read all of these. :)


From Edelweiss:



AH! That cover is wonderful. ;D I loved books three and four of this series - If Wishes Were Earls and The Viscount Who Lived Down the Lane!


Last week of winter classes is this coming week! I'm trying to cram as much reading as possible into January before spring semester begins. So far, I've read ten books for the month/year!

  1. Oh my goodness, great haul! I'm waiting for my library to finally get their copy of the Impostor Queen-been waiting so long to read it! OMG I loved Keeper of the Lost Cities! I wasn't aware you read MG? Gorgeous poster and congrats on the FIL prize. It looks wonderful! Have a great week!

    1. You should enter my January giveaway! And isn't the poster great? I don't really read MG - I won the poster from Carine's giveaway, which I entered because helloooo, gorgeous swag.

      Thank you, Cindy! You too!

  2. You had a nice full mailbox with some fun stuff to go with your books. I have that Katee Roberts book and I really need to get it read. Good luck on the last of your winter classes.

    1. Honestly though! I've never seen umbrella bookish swag! I wanted to pop it open and show the logo, but my mother has weird superstitions from Trinidad... something about if you open an umbrella in a house, the roof will leak. o.O And I thought Americans were bad - they think it's bad luck if you open an umbrella indoors!

      Anyway. Thank you!

  5. Oh wow!! What a haul!! I find myself wanting that button! The one that says Keep YA weird! LOL! It's so cool!

    I remember at YALLFest I got a First in Line umbrella. Though since I knew I was flying home I gave it to someone else. There was no way I could fit it in my luggage plus all my books. And I already had my 2 carry ons so it wasn't meant to be! Oddly enough it was hard to find someone to take it from me too!

    Hope you enjoy all your new goodies!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. AHA! Now I remember! This giveaway was from November, a YALLFest giveaway for those not attending! THANK YOU for mentioning that you went! I had no idea what giveaway I'd entered to win all of this.

      Aww, that's too bad! I wish you could have taken the umbrella with you! I'm glad someone got it though.

      Thank you, Jessica!

    1. Sure thing! I already reviewed The Impostor Queen (HERE) and The Marriage Contract (HERE). I'm currently reading The Knave of Hearts... probably will not read the four in the first picture since they're not review books and I don't really have interest in any of them (sadly). The three from Macmillan are scheduled for later in the year (since their publications are in May, June, and August)!

      Hope that is what you wanted to see/know. ;)

  19. That's an awesome haul, Alyssa! And I get you on wanting to read as much as possible before the spring semester starts! Mine doesn't start until late February, but I have a huge six hour written exam next Monday, plus a paper to hand in :(
    Have a great week and enjoy all your books.
