Stacking the Shelves (#219)


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 26th to Saturday, March 4th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

I only got two books this week and both were unsolicited, so nothing super exciting. I'll post them when I get home tonight!

EDIT: updated!



Thank you, Tor and Simon & Schuster! Both are unsolicited.


From Edelweiss:



I'm actually really looking forward to reading this book! I didn't really like The Crown's Game but I got very helpful spoilers about this book (intentional, peeps) and I'm very pleased about what I heard. I'm hoping I like this book much more than The Crown's Game!


Aha! Given how ridiculous the last three weeks were (in terms of mail), I knew I'd hit a drought soon. I'm glad because I have enough to read. For months. o_o

I shared all the good news on Tuesday! You can read about everything HERE, if you feel so inclined. Thank you so much to everyone who has posted something! I've been reading the wonderful notes and I am so touched. You all have made me feel like I'm floating on a cloud all week! Many hugs to you all. <3

Tell me what you got this week, how you're doing, etc.!

  1. First of all, congrats again (just read your Tuesday post). That's awesome. :) And I know what you mean about having plenty to read- I've been feeling that way too after getting a ton of new books lately. Not that I mind ha ha.

    Have a super weekend!

  19. Sometimes intentional spoilers are exactly what you need to keep your interest in a series alive (or to confirm that you shouldn't keep reading...cough, Allegiant). Have a great week, Alyssa! :)

  23. Congratulations on passing your exam and on the job Alyssa, I'm super proud of how you've been able to manage everything, I don't think I would have been able to manage a blog and do everything that you do! And I've been receiving a few ARC books lately, but like you I have so much to catch up on! I hope you have a great week! :)
