Stacking the Shelves (#218)


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 19th to Saturday, February 25th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

FROM THE PREVIOUS WEEK (Feb. 12th - Feb. 18th)



Thank you, BHM! Look for a giveaway of this book in a few weeks. :D



My latest BookOutlet order! I am so excited because I've been looking for this particular paperback edition of Wrath (which I loved, by the way, and its sequel) - and there were two copies available on BookOutlet! Shout-out to Mithila for pointing out the book on BookOutlet to me! Saved me from attempting to find it on #booksfortrade. ;)



Two completely separate mailings from one awesome publisher! Thank you, Sourcebooks Casablanca! I won My Highland Rebel, which was exciting. And then the publicist of the Highland Weddings series surprised me with an ARC of Highland Hellion - squeee! So nice of her.



Thank you, Susan! Windwitch was great, y'all. Check out the series if you get the chance!



HUGE thanks to Gail for sending this to me - she is so nice! She saw that I was looking for one and offered to send hers, which was so sweet. <3


A whole bunch of buttons

BUTTONS! I love buttons. This was from a trade with Jenefer (who is awesome), via #booksfortrade. She was looking for an ARC that I had. This trade worked out nicely because she got her ARC and I got more BUTTONS!


FROM THIS WEEK (Feb. 19th - Feb. 25th)

I'll update this section when I go home, Saturday evening!


EDIT: UPDATED!



Ahhh! I won these from Brooke's Valentine's Day giveaway - I am so excited! So many great books to read. Best giveaway ever! Thank you, Brooke!



Thank you, Abrams!



Thank you, Disney! What an interesting title, right?


From NetGalley:

  
  


Thank you, Entangled Brazen, Forever, and Tor Teen! So many great sequels to read (and the start of a new series, with Roar)!


PEOPLE! I did A Thing this week and I finally get to talk about it! I'll do a post on Tuesday. In other news, I might be going to one of the Penguin Teen on Tour stops in March - or maybe two! The Nova Teen Festival one, and the Fairfax one. How cool is that? Most events are too far away from me, but I might be able to make it to these two events. Cross your fingers for me!

In other OTHER news... THANK YOU!

  5. You got a lot of cool looking books and swag, I hope you enjoy them. That is cool about being able to go to those fan fair events, I wish there was some close to me but I live out in the boonies and I don't want to travel 2 or more hours just to meet an author...lol.

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you, Stormi! Both are events are kind of too far away, but my sister might take me (since both events are close to her boyfriend's house). We're still working out the details, so we'll see!

    1. Thank you, Sophia! You are such a big part of the one millions views, and I am so grateful. <333

      BookOutlet is the best/worst thing for a book nerd! I'm really excited to have found this edition of The Wrath & The Dawn. Plus, Swept Away by a Kiss was really cheap!

      Thank you, ma'am! I hope I don't disappoint. ^_^

  8. Great looking swag and book haul week for you! I need to look up events in my area to go to. I've been wanting to go to one but never find out about them until they are already over. lol!

    Hope you have a great week!

    1. It really was! Baltimore doesn't have a ton of events happening, but Northern Virginia and D.C. always does... which sucks because both are too far away, especially for a college student with no car. o_o

      Thank you, Julie!

  16. Everything you got this week looks amazing! I tried reading The Wrath and the Dawn but couldn't get through with it. I think it was the writing style. Roar and Seeker look amazing! Definitely adding them to my TBR!Also, the buttons you got are to die for! Hope you enjoy all your new books and have an awesome weekend!

  18. Nice swag! I'm super jealous of your Wrath and the Dawn paperback copy. It's so gorgeous. I'm kind of upset that they changed the look of the paperbacks. I would have loved to collected the paperbacks with the old covers of Shazi.

    1. It was only $4.99 on BookOutlet! I had been hunting down that edition for a while so I'm glad I snagged a copy. You're right, too bad The Rose & The Dagger doesn't have a paperback copy like this old version of Wrath!

    1. YES! Me too! The goodies are just as fun.

      Well, my school backpack is nearly covered... I've got a few tote bags that have a bunch already pinned to them, but given that I have a large assortment of tote bags, I can always pin new buttons to more tote bags! :D

    1. OMG! Tweet me if you end up going! I'll definitely be attending that one. The Sunday one is looking like a no (simply because of laziness, at this point. It's so late in the day!).
