Stacking the Shelves (#200)


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 16th to Saturday, October 22nd?

In the mail:

FROM LAST WEEK:



My first BookOutlet order! I had an issue with it, and the customer service rep handled it like the pro that she is. A lovely experience overall!



I'll be reading this one next week! Thank you, Roc. =)



Thank you, Berkley! I LOVED this book. :D


Scotland goodies and The Earl swag from Katharine Ashe

Thank you, Katharine! She is so awesome. =)


Posters - Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh and Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Thank you soooo much, Alice! This was a wonderful trade. <3


FROM THIS WEEK:


Swag from a trade - thank you, Sondra!


More swag from a trade - thank you, Casey!


Aaaand more swag from a trade - thank you, Tatiana!


From NetGalley:



For the blog tour! Thank you, Harlequin and Inkslingr. =)


That's all from the last two weeks! I know, that's "all". :D But hey, this is my 200th STS post! That, to me, is commitment. I'm proud of how far I've come, with my blog!

  1. Nice haul. I find that Book Outlet, Amazon and Apple have the best service reps out there. Great haul of books this week.

  2. Gah, the Flame in the Mist poster is just stunning. That cover is just so amazing and, of course, so is Caraval! I still need to read Uprooted! It's been on my tbr for ages. Great haul, Alyssa!

    1. Isn't it? I was so happy to snag it on #booksfortrade. Uprooted has been on my TBR as well!

      Thank you!

  3. Woosh, that is quite the pile of goodies. Neat that you got to trade for things you want, too.

  5. OOoh nice trades! Love swag! My box of swag is overflowing! Way too many bookmarks and postcards but I can't seem to get rid of them! Just have to buy a bigger box! LOL!

    Nice new reads too! They're new to me ones. Glad customer service helped you out with your Book Outlet order! That's always good when they come to the rescue! Especially when it's a book related order!

    Happy Reading!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. DUDE. I know what you mean. I have at least three boxes of swag, and that doesn't include what is in books or on tote bags. I have a swag addition!

      Thank you, Jessica!

  6. Glad you had a good experience with BookOutlet. I have not shopped there myself yet but I heard good things.

    I got The Earl too o.o kind of excited to see how that one goes.

    The posters look so nice. I hope you enjoy your weekend.

  13. That hardcover of Uprooted is so pretty! Book Outlet is my weakness, whenever they have a big sale I just cannot resist. And that cover for The Darkest Torment is so pretty. Happy reading!

    1. Isn't it?! I nabbed it as soon as I saw it - and it was the only copy available. :D Now I am hooked on BookOutlet.

      Thank you, Teresa!

  14. I love how much you love swag. So many people don't care about them so it's cool that you collect them. I hope you enjoy your new books Alyssa, I have heard so many great things about Uprooted.

  15. I have never ordered from Bookoutlet before, but it's good to know that you had a good customer service experience with them. I still haven't read AGoS, because of that cliffhanger. I think it will be safer for me to wait for the last book to be out before I jump in. And all your swag looks awesome! What do you do with them? Do you have like a display? I'd love to see!
    Happy reading, Alyssa!

    1. The cliffhanger in AGOS was heartbreaking! I neeeed A Conjuring of Light.

      At least half of my swag is in boxes... the other half can be found on my refrigerator (posters and magnets), books (bookmarks), or tote bags (buttons). :D Hmm, showing off the displays, now that is an idea...

      Thank you, Nick!

  24. What a great haul. Love all the goodies!

    There's something compelling about that Darkest Torment cover. I'd pick it up based on that alone!
