Stacking the Shelves (#193)


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, August 28th to Saturday, September 3rd?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:


Various swag

I actually got this the week before but forgot to feature it in last week's STS post. Thank you so much for trading with me, Ashley!


A hardcover copy of A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

I won a preorder from Jaime - thank you!


Buttons and various swag

I traded three of my books for some swag. Thank you, Elle!


25 Avon books - the favorites of each of the 25 Avon Addicts of Class 5!

My final package as an active Avon Addict! Thank you, Avon! Can you guess which one was my pick? ;)



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


From NetGalley:



YAAAASSS! Thank you, Sourcebooks! I adored A Promise of Fire. :D



Thank you, Entangled! This is an older title but I've not read it yet, so I jumped at the chance! I love Robert's books. =)


My first two days of class were this week (Thursday and Friday) - holy guacamole! I can't believe summer is over. It's going to be a busy and tough semester. I am not prepared for this to be my last year in college!
