Stacking the Shelves (#177)


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, May 8th to Saturday, May 14th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

From May 1st to Saturday, May 7th:


Super cool goods

THIS PACKAGE! Thank you so much, Bloomsbury!



Thank you so so so much, Macmillan! *heart eyes*



Thank you, PRH!



My preorder! I'll have a review posted this Thursday.



Thank you, Tor! I haven't read book one - do I need to?

From Sunday, May 8th to Saturday, May 13th:



Thank you, Chronicle Books! I've read this one and loved it.



I won this from Jen - thank you! I don't know if I'm ready to read this one.



Thank you, Tor! I'm not too familiar with this book/author - anyone heard of it?



Thank you, Carrie! A successful trade. I loved Six of Crows and am really excited to have a hardcover copy!



Oh wow! Thank you, Berkley! I liked The Bourbon Kings a lot and can't wait to start this sequel.



With the brand new cover! This book was published in 1977, but Avon is reprinting it - with a beautiful new cover - as part of Avon's 75th anniversary. Thank you for the advanced copy, Pam!


From Edelweiss:



One more Harper book for the fall!



From the blog tour! Thank you, Avon!


Phew! I think that's it. I had a very busy two weeks (with finals and end-of-the-semester/school year things to wrap up). And I had to good ones weeks in terms of book mail! I am very excited about all of these new shiny pretties. Many are not requests so I don't feel too overwhelmed.

I have some exciting personal news/updates to share with you all! I think I'll have a post on everything posted on Monday. Somebody hold me to it! =)

  2. My stacking the shelves is ridiculous this week, because I am in Chicago at BEA/BookCon. Got 102 books at BEA, but I am still jealous that you have the next Bourbon Kings! The Rose and the Dagger was awesome (her writing is beautiful). I really liked The Lovely Reckless and Finding Audrey too. I hope you will review Nemesis, because I love Anna Banks. Enjoy!

    1. That is AWESOME! I need to go to BEA in the future. I can't wait to read The Rose & The Dagger! I definitely will be reading Nemesis. ^_^

  3. So many!! I'm so interesting in Stealing Snow and Blood Red Snow White. That one has an interesting title. I had previously gotten a Linda Grimes book as well from Tor but I've never read it.
    I want When We Collided so bad! *sobs* I really do. I hope you enjoy it whenever you decide to read it.
    I hope you have a lovely week Alyssa!

    1. Isn't it a cool title? It was previously published, and now being republished. I am interested in When We Collided, but I am also fairly certain that it will break my heart. We shall see! I'll let you know how it goes.

      Thank you, Genesis!

  5. What an epic haul, Alyssa! Super jealous of This Adventure Ends and Nemesis! :)
    I saw the Angel's Share and I was curious but I haven't read the first book. You think it's something I would like?
    Happy reading!! :)

    1. Macmillan was good to me! It'll be a while before I can read the first two you mentioned, but The Angel's Share is going to happen soon. The Bourbon Kings was really good, though there is quite a bit of drama! Very soap-opera-y, but I liked it.

      Thank you! <3

  17. Is Snow by the same author that wrote the Wizard of Oz retelling?

    I LOVED Six of Crows but I read an arc. I just saw a finished HC at the bookstore yesterday and it's gorgeous!

  22. Omg, so many amazing books! BLOOD RED SNOW WHITE is actually a book that came out a while back, but for some reason is just coming to the US now... it’s fantastic, but I think I was too young to appreciate it (I was in the 7th grade haha), so a re-read is in order. Super jealous of all the other books!! Happy reading :D
