Stacking the Shelves (#201)


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 23rd to Saturday, October 30th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

EDITED! Here is my mail from this week --



AHHHH! Thank you, GCP! I love this so much. You can never have too many!



Both unsolicited - thank you, Tor! I'm really digging the cover of The Gates of Hell. :D



Thank you, Abrams! This is so cool. :)


Swoon Reads package, including an ARC of Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock

Thank you, Swoon Reads! Huge congratulations to them on their anniversary, and for expanding their genres!


Bookplates and bookmarks

Thank you, HarperTeen and Wendy! I won the ARC from the Twitter sweeps Wendy hosted last week, and she sent swag with it. I am dying to read this book!


Various swag

Thank you, Pam! This was all from two trades that we did. I love all of it!



OMG! So much awesome in one box! Thank you so so much - I can't wait to dig in!



Thank you, Katharine! In case you were curious, I liked this book a lot. =)


From NetGalley:

  


Both of these were widget invites! I can't wait to dig into both. Thank you, Berkley and Entangled!


This week was brutal! My sincerest apologies to everyone who left comments that I missed - I'm in the process of going through all of them and returning them now. I appreciate your patience! =)

  1. Ouch! Sorry to hear this week kicked your can. Oh neat, that first one looks intriguing.

    I got the Sarina Bowen one, too. It looks good and I'm in the mood for sports romances a little.

    Hope this week is better for you.

    1. I love romance novels! I can't even call them my "guilty pleasure" because I feel no guilt when reading them. Thank you!

  5. I got Hard Hitter's arc in the mail around two weeks ago!! I can't wait to start the first book and this one. I'm also excited for Roseblood!!
    Take your time! I know how stressful it is to have a life and then to try to keep up commenting. So seriously, take your time in all that :)

  7. I'm super excited for Hard Hitter! I'm waiting to see if a friend gets it first so we can buddy read. I love Page Morgan's YA series so I'm curious about this HR. I'll wait to see what you think first!
    Happy reading!

    1. Hopefully the friend gets the book! I loved Morgan's Dispossessed series as well - Nereyda actually helped me out there, with my hardcover collection.

      Thank you!

  8. NO WAY!! I'm dying to read Roseblood! I love A.G. Howard so much. I hope its as wonderful as the rest of her books have been :)

    1. I didn't like her debut trilogy, but I'm very curious about this new book. Hopefully I like it better than I did her last one!

  9. It is definitely that time of the semester. Here's hoping next week is a little kinder. I can't wait to see your thoughts on the Phantom inspired book! I didn't read Howard's Wonderland series, but I might check out this book; I have fond memories of the musical (except for the part at the beginning where they nearly blinded me with a giant flash of light to start the flashback). Take it easy!

    1. Seriously though! Since the end of September, really. This week was really bad. I'm just happy for it to be over. :/ We'll see how this Howard book goes! I didn't like her debut trilogy (the last book, really).

      Thank you, Kel! You too. =)

  14. Yay Roseblood! That is one I cannot wait to dive into. And The Great Pursuit, I'm so stressed over how that one will conclude. And then I got My Rogue My Ruin as well and I am really excited for it. Love the Robin Hood vibe. Happy reading.

    1. I'm excited and a little apprehensive about RoseBlood, but super super excited about The Great Pursuit.

      The Robin Hood vibe is exactly what drew me! Hopefully the book does not disappoint. :D Thank you, Teresa!

  17. I find emails and commenting sometimes have to take a back seat. There are only so many hours in the day and I surely understand how you can run out of time. :-)
