Stacking the Shelves (#199)


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 9th to Saturday, October 15th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

I won't be going home this weekend, so I'll have to post all my bookish mail next week! And on Twitter, of course. =)


From NetGalley:

  


Thank you, SMP and Entangled Brazen! Pre-pub and backlist, a great mix!


From Edelweiss:



Thank you, Avon! I'll be reading this one very soon. I'm excited!


Friends, remember last week's plea? Well, I am surviving! One more thoroughly awful week to go and then I'm slightly free until November's round of exams. Can you believe we only have 70 days until Christmas? YAY HOLIDAY SEASON!

  7. Yay you got Wintersong. Now you can read it and let me know if it's one I should read. :D
    I read While the Duke Was Sleeping last weekend and ehhh ... I didn't like it. Fingers crossed you have better luck with it.
    Good luck with everything and have a lovely week!

    1. Yaaasss! I will definitely let you know. I've seen some people begging for a sequel - I think there will be a companion one, which is good, I guess.

      Ugh! I didn't love the book before this one... basically the only one I liked was the first one. The second one was awful. This one too? Merp. I'll stick with Jordan's adult contemporary romance... *sigh*

      Thank you, Nick! You too. ^_^

  11. You're so close! Just a little farther. :) I can't believe how fast this semester is going. Is Christmas really that close?! O.O I will soon be in exam panic mode with you. Until then, take it easy, rest up, pray, and keep an emergency can of Mountain Dew on hand.

  14. I hope you'll survive easily until Christmas, and that your weeks will be light and rather uneventful!
    Your new books look great! A little of this and a little of that - just like I want it, too.
