Stacking the Shelves (#217)


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, February 12th to Saturday, February 18th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

I'm not going home this week! Watch my Twitter for mail updates, which will happen on Sunday night. I'll also post everything on next week's STS post.


From NetGalley:



Eeeeee! So excited to read this one. I loved Undecided. :D


From Edelweiss:

    


Thank you, S&S and Harper!


Friends, I have some really really good news that I will be sharing soon! I hope you all will be as excited as I am! Thank you to everyone who has stuck with me, especially in the last six weeks. All the hugs! =)

  7. OOoh nice haul!! Loving your Edelweiss haul! I actually plan to binge two of these once they release! Of course I initially thought Blackhearts was a duology, apparently it's going to be a trilogy but I don't think I can wait another year before starting it! LOL! Pretty sure The Last Magician is a standalone but not positive! Looking forward to finally binging Megan's series though!

    Hope you enjoy all the awesome new reads!


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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. That's a good idea! Man, this is the first I've heard of Blacksouls being book two of three - I thought the series was a duology. Now I have to rethink things, LOL. I like duologies better!

      Thank you, Jessica!

  8. I'm curious to see what you think of Undeclared. It wasn't entirely for me. I hope you'll love it though. And I expect all the Blacksoul spoilers! I got The Last Magician too and I'm so excited to read it. It's a pretty big book though.
    Have a wonderful week! :)

    1. I have a feeling I won't like it as much as Undecided simply because I'm not a fan of second-chance romance. BUT. I'm four-for-four with Keyes' books.

      Thank you, Nick!

    1. Undecided, definitely read Undecided! Hold off on Undeclared until you read Undecided. Undecided was one of my favorites books of 2016!

  11. Hope you enjoy these. I was tempted to grab up Undeclared, but I really want to read Undecided first.

    1. I highly recommend Undecided, Renee! It's only $1.99 at the moment. :D

  13. Nice collection of books! The Last Magician's cover reminds me a lot of the symbol from the Never Ending Story :)

    Enjoy them!

  15. Cool picks, Alyssa. It's times like this I am glad I Edelweiss does not deliver to Portugal or I would have yet another addiction besides Netgalley!

    1. LOL! Edelweiss is just as addicting as NetGalley, that's for sure. ;)

  18. I love all of your new books. The cover of Undeclared is so hot... I can't believe I haven't seen this one before. I haven't read Blackheart yet, I'm not too sure if I'd like it since I haven't seen a lot of good reviews.
    I hope you enjoy your new books, and I'm looking forward to the good news.

    1. She just revealed the cover a few weeks ago! I highly recommend the first book, Undecided. I didn't totally love Blackhearts BUT it was mostly due to the ending (at the time, Blackhearts was a standalone). Hopefully Blacksouls will "fix" things.

      Thank you so much, Aneta!

  23. Oooh, I'm quite excited to hear your thoughts on Undeclared! That series looks like one of the few NA offerings that might actually appeal to me, hahaha. I think I *might* know what your good news is based on all your hinting, but I can't wait to hear for sure. I'm excited for you regardless, Alyssa! :D

    1. Danya, Undecided is my favorite NA book! Undeclared probably won't be *as* good for me, but I'm so excited to read it (this weekend coming).

      I've hinted about the news once before BUT now I have something concrete about that same thing I was hinting about last months... plus something else! Girl, I am sooooo excited. So excited! Thank you!

  26. There are some books that I want so much that I'm almost tempted to try ebooks again and brave a whomping headache...and Last Magician is one of them! LOL I loved her Unhooked and can't wait to see her take on magic & time travel!

    Can't wait to hear your exciting news! Have a fantastic week, Alyssa!

    1. I know what you mean! Hopefully you get print ARCs (I'm sure you will, you are awesome like that). Unhooked was wonderful!
