Stacking the Shelves (#220)


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, March 5th to Saturday, March 11th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



I won this from Delighted Reader! Thank you, Shari and Helena. =)



YAAAASSSS! Thank you, Forever Romance!



Thank you, Avon! This is from the #AvonAddicts program, which is so cool.



Thank you, Random House! This book is one of my most anticipated YA books of 2017. And it's in my hands! I'm going to take it for Julie to sign at the NoVa Teen Book Festival.



Three of my Fall '16/Winter '17 preorders! I am SO glad they came today - I'm going to meet Alwyn tomorrow, and Traitor is here in time!


Friends! I'll be at the NoVa Teen Book Festival (which is doubling as a #PenguinTeenOnTour stop). I have dozens of books for Renee Ahdieh, Alwyn Hamilton, Lesley Livingston, Jodi Meadows, Julie Buxbaum... so excited! Will I see any of you there? Please say hi!

  7. Looks like you got a lot of great ones! I love Katee Robert! I just looked up What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum on Goodreads and ended up adding it to my TBR list. It sounds like it's going to be super good! Hope you have a great weekend, Alyssa!

    1. She is easily one of my favorite romance authors! I've peeked through Forbidden Promises and I like what I've seen so far. I hope you read (and enjoy) What to Say Next!

  8. OOh nice! It's always great when those books come in just in time for a signing...unlike when my Susan Dennard one came in the day AFTER I saw her. Sigh...the NOVA Teen Festival sounds awesome, but sadly too far for me. Still trying to figure out what multi author event I want to treat myself to this year. Haven't heard of any new ones yet and the ones I've been hearing about aren't ones I feel are worth the long drive.

    Hope you have a great time and enjoy all the new lovelies!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. The Festival is definitely closer to me than it is to you but... it was still a bit of a roadtrip. Totally worth it though! Multi-author events are a little stressful, but so fun. o_o

      Thank you, Jessica!

    1. Both of them were wonderful, and so nice! I felt like a total fangirl, fawning over a celebrity or something. It was great!

  14. I loved Traitor to the Throne, I'm super jealous you get to meet Alwyn.
    I'm reading Starfall right now, it's okay, but its not as good as the first book.

    1. Thank you! NoVa Teen was actually a multi-author event (and not exclusively a Penguin Teen on Tour event). It was great!

    1. It wasn't really luck - I had to give up quite a bit in order to make it work!

  19. Ha! That first book totally made me think I read something else there! And totally envious of your upcoming trip to NoVa teen book festival! I'd love to hit up one of these book cons one day, but unfortunately none of them are ever around me. Have tons of fun!

    1. Alwyn and the other Slaydies were so cool! I got to meet others since it was a festival (and not just a PTOT event). So much fun!

      You should definitely read Tell Me Three Things! I loved it so much.
