Stacking the Shelves (#198)


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, October 2nd to Saturday, October 8th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



With the exception of the romance novel, all were unsolicited! Thank you, Simon & Schuster, Tor, Random House, and Avon. =)


From the publisher:



I actually got approval for this one from Edelweiss a few weeks ago, but I forgot to download it, and the book published. But the Avon publicist sent me a copy anyway! It was very nice of her. =) Thank you, Avon!


This week flew by! I had a busy time with schoolwork, job work, and blog work. But on the plus side, I spontaneously bought some books from BookOutlet! I've never bought books from them. Rachel was so sweet and sent me a coupon! A heads-up -- next week might kill me (midterms, papers, problem sets). So bear with me, please!

  1. That was nice of them to send along the copy anyway.

    Oh yeah, the Book Outlet is a dangerous site for me especially when they send out a coupon or sales notice. :)

    Wishing you well on your big mid-term push.

  2. That was real nice of them to send you a copy! :) Some of those publicist are really great! Enjoy!

    Good luck with mid-term!

  4. Ooh nice! That's a new to me read! Book Outlet is pretty cool! Though I find that I don't shop there often enough! I usually buy books as they release which kind of defeats the purpose of Book Outlet! LOL! Can't wait to see your haul once it comes in! Hope the coming week won't be too stressful! Happy Reading!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. BookOutlet is a site on which I do a lot of "window shopping"... I've browsed the site many times but never actually bought anything, until now! I'm excited. Thank you, Jessica!

  8. School comes first. Sometimes RL can get busy and interfere with our blogging. That was so nice of the publisher to send you that book. Great haul.

  10. Blogging (or maintaining any time consuming hobby, really) can be really difficult when you're in university. Good luck with everything, you've got this Alyssa!

    Plus it's good motivation to know that you've got a fun romance novel waiting for you when you're done, right? :D

    1. Ha! For sure! And OMG Danya, romance novels are my "guilty" pleasure. I am ALWAYS so excited to sneak time from studying and read them! The swoonier (and less angsty), the better. ;D

  11. The Guide to the Other Side looks pretty cute! Might be a fun Halloween read! Enjoy all your new goodies, Alyssa!

    1. It does look cute! They got the timing right, with the publishing season. :D Thank you!

  12. I've bought from BookOutlet before, but adding in the shipping prices usually takes it over what I want to pay. I tried ThriftBooks not long ago and was pretty happy with them. Free shipping for orders over $10 (not hard at all) and they have a reading rewards program. I'm technically on a book buying ban, but I'd use them again.

    Best of luck on midterms and everything! I'm sure you'll do great. :)

    1. PS - I can get you a 15% off coupon to ThriftBooks if you're interested in trying it. ;)

    2. Ooo, I see what you're saying. In this case, shipping wasn't bad. I've never heard of ThriftBooks! Let me check it out, and I may ask you for that coupon. ;)

      Thank you, Kel! Have a lovely week. <333

  20. I can't wait to read When A Marquess Loves a Woman! I literally went to Goodreads to check if you or Nick had read the previous books. When I saw you liked them, I accepted the book so I'll be reading it next week! I hope this coming week doesn't drain you with all that you have coming up.

  25. Enjoy your new reads! I've been super busy as well and haven't felt like blogging or anything. I'm trying to get out if this slump because I keep reading all these amazing books but haven't posted reviews for them. Hopefully, I'll get my groove back soon. Other than two blog tour posts, I've not scheduled anything else.
