Stacking the Shelves (#187)


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, July 17th to Saturday, July 23rd?

In the mail:


Various cool swag items

OMG! Thank you so much, Michelle! This was an amazing trade and I love everything. <3



What an amazing surprise! I loved Dreamer's Pool and Tower of Thorns. Thank you, PRH!



YAAASSS! Thank you, Random House!



Thank you so so so much, Jenefer! I love buttons so much... maybe too much. :D This was a wonderful trade!


From NetGalley:



I love Tessa's books! PMB novel for the win. :D


From Edelweiss:



Eep! Tessa Dare is one of my favorite HR authors, and I loved MacLean's previous book in this series! Such a good week for Avon books. :D


For Review:



From First to Read! I can't wait to read this one.


From Kel:


AHHH! Thank you so much, Kel! You may have seen my Twitter feed, but Kel and I got to meet in person on Friday. She was heading south to D.C., and decided to stop in Baltimore and meet up. It was wonderful! And she surprised me with fancy goodies - such a wonderful surprise! <3333




And that's my week in books! I had a fantastic week, in life and books. =)

  1. Ooooh Gemina is one of the very few ARC's that I'm interested in. I hope it's as good as Illuminae. Enjoy your new books!

  2. Yay! I'm glad you were able to get Torch! :)
    I also seriously need to read more by Marillier. I read one book by her that I really liked.

    1. ME TOO! Michelle tweeted me directly and was like, are you still looking for Torch? We worked out a great trade.

      I love this particular series by Marillier! Dreamer's Pool was one of my favorite books, two years ago. *happy sigh*

      Thank you and you too, Nick! <3

  5. How great that you got the chance to meet a blogging friend! I'm not likely to meet any of mine sadly as I don't get out to conventions and most live on other continents! Glad you both had fun! Enjoy your new books and have a good weekend.

    1. It's a never-ending battle, with the TBR! Sometimes I don't feel as bad for not attending conventions, because that means less books for me! But then again, I usually end up receiving what I wanted from the conventions, from the publishers. So it's not as win-win as I think. :D

  8. Yay I hope you like TORCH!!! Happy weekend, and isn't it always fun when you get to meet people irl after chatting with them for awhile??

    1. It is! Sometimes I feel like Baltimore is a black hole when it comes to bookish people and events, so this was especially wonderful. <3

  18. ooh look at all this fun goodies you have here!!! Those buttons are so adorable. Glad to see you are excited for Dare's and MacLean's books. I didn't really like Dare's last book, so I am nervous about this one. But I have been reading some great reviews about this one. So I might end up getting it. :)

    1. The buttons made my week! There are sooo many of them. :D Tessa's latest - When a Scot Ties the Knot? Say it isn't so! I adored that one. But this one is of a previous series of hers, which is an awesome series. =)

  20. So jealous of your A Torch Against the Night! I thought I had a trade set up for it on Twitter, but so far I've sent my book, and the person isn't at home to send her book, so says she's just going to have a friend get her mail and send my book back to me. Great haul this week! Thanks for stopping by my Sunday Post earlier!

    1. Hopefully the trade works out! Keep faith. You're welcome!
