Stacking the Shelves (#223)


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 26th to Saturday, April 1st?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:


A Roar poster

Thank you, Tor! No, I'm not home yet (I will be on Saturday night), but I broke my own rule for this book. It poured rain on Friday, and this package got soaked. My sister messaged me pictures of the package, and it was a bit damaged... so I told her to go ahead and open the package and take out whatever was in it. The poster is a tiny bit wet in a corner, but otherwise, everything looks okay!

The rest!



A nice surprise from First Second/Macmillan! My little cousin might enjoy some of these. Good timing too, because her birthday is in a week!



Thank you, Penguin! I read this one last year and really enjoyed it. =)


From Amazon:




Free sampler! It includes a sneak peek of The Darkest Promise too. :D


I'll post the other book (I think it was just one more package) when I get home on Saturday! A quiet mail week, which is exactly what I needed.

Friends! If anyone wants to help me out, please like THIS or THIS post! Much appreciated. :D If you share that graphic with the hashtag #Snowstormlings, you could win an eARC of Roar. You can also win a preorder of Roar HERE.

Also, don't forget about my pageviews giveaways! The Twitter one ended, but the two blog giveaways are still open (until Saturday night)!

  1. Oh man, yes! It poured so hard the last few days here. I was very relieved that I didn't get any packages because all our mail was so damp.

    Have a great weekend, Alyssa!

    1. Right?! I loved it (I adore torrential downpours) but not at the expense of my book mail. :( I'm glad yours were safe!

      Thank you, Sophia!

  3. Oh nice! Been seeing a lot of love for Roar going on lately! I'm kind of on the fence about it. But I can't wait to read your thoughts on it! Happy Reading!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. To be honest, I understand why you're on the fence. Perhaps wait until the series is complete?

      Thank you, Jessica!

  7. oh YAY for Gena Showalter and I am so jealous but then I have become so behind on her books, so I do need to catch up on her since I just have loved her for the most part. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  8. Roar definitely looks interesting, and glad the water damage wasn't worse. I hate it when it pours and book packages get wrecked. Ugh!

    Have a great weekend!!

  13. You're so lucky to have a copy of Roar. Great haul.

  14. Ah! Roar! It seems like I've been waiting FOREVER for that book. I haven't read anything by Carmack before but this one sounds fantastic and I can't wait for it to eventually release!

    I liked both of your posts and realised I wasn't following your FB page so that's also been rectified! :D

    Hope you have a great week and thank goodness for saving wet packages!

    1. YAY! I hope you love it when you read it, Mogsy! Also if you're interested in Showalter, this sampler is PERFECT, because it's free, and it includes a sample of all of the books in this series!

  17. I am glad that your copy of Roar stayed safe in the rain storm. I am always worried about something like that happening. Enjoy your new books!

    1. Me too! I didn't even know it was supposed to arrive that day and I flipped out when I realized that it was home and soaking on the porch. Thank goodness my sister grabbed it for me!

  18. I'm glad the actual book is okay! I really hate when the rain soaks into packages. Doesn't happen too often though, thank goodness!

    1. It really is! Even if I end up disliking the book (which I'm sure I won't), I would still want a copy of the book, because of the cover. Thank you! <333

  21. Glad the package was okay...for the most part. That has happened to me once or twice. Gena Showalter's writing rocks, so I hope you enjoy it.

    1. I was so realized! There was so much rain that day. I haven't read the VA series, only Soundless and The Glittering Court. I didn't really like Soundless, but The Glittering Court was pretty good. Thank you, Genni!

  27. Roar looks pretty interesting. I'm glad the rain didn't get to it! It was so rainy here on Friday. I had planned to let my students outside to film their book trailers, but they had to be inside instead. I've actually been meaning to read This One Summer. I'm a fan of graphic novels. Have a great week!
