Stacking the Shelves (#224)


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, April 2nd to Saturday, April 8th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

To be updated on Saturday evening! Friends, I have some SERIOUSLY great book mail to share with you (that I know of). There is a package in particular that I know I received and I can't wait to show you! 

Updated -- it's a lot!




Thank you, Sajda! I don't collect many ARCs, but I do for this series. This was the last USA ARC I needed, and Sajda helped me out. Thank you so much, lady!



YAY! New Sarah Fine book! Thank you, Amazon/Brilliance.



Thank you, Tor!


Swag from a trade

Thank you, Katie! She was looking for Emery Lord ARCs and I happened to have one. I love helping collectors! 


A manuscript of Warcross by Marie Lu

AHHHHHH. Thank you so much, Kelli! I pulled out the big guns for these, and I'm so glad we worked something out. My REBEL collection is growing! I can't wait to read Warcross!
From Edelweiss:

  


Thank you, Avon! I'm loving the Scandal & Scoundrel series, and I adore Tessa Bailey's books. I'm sure these two books will be great!


April is in full swing! I have a little over a month until I'm finished with school. April is going to be insane for me! Bear with me, please! 

In blog news, I chose winners for all giveaways from March that I hosted! Thank you all for entering. I'm still trying to catch up on comments on reviews from early FEBRUARY... I need a solid day to go through all of them!

In bookish news, did you all see the cover of Jane, Unlimited? It was revealed on Friday!

  16. Whoa! What an epic trade!! Traitor is such a pretty manuscript and I hope you love Warcross! It looks really interesting! The Jane cover is very cool, but not what I expected at all! I like it, though! Have a great week, Alyssa, and a great last month of school!!

    1. Seriously! I pulled out all of the big guns for those two. ;)

      The cover is so different, and very creative! The MC is an umbrella maker, so it fits.

      Thank you, Becky!

  17. Some lovely books here! And goodness, YES Jane Unlimited is gorgeous!

  18. Great haul! Warcross looks fantastic! I hope the story will live up to the cover :) I still need to read Traitor to the Throne, even though I got it when it was just released... I hope you'll enjoy all the books you got! Happy reading!

    1. I hope so too! It's a very hyped title for sure. Traitor to the Throne was an excellent sequel! Hopefully you love it. Thank you, Lynn!

  20. So many amazing books! Rebel of the Sands is definitely at the top of my TBR list! And the release of Traitor to the Throne makes me even more eager to pick it up and reader so I can move on to the sequel! They both sound amazing! Hope you enjoy all your new books and have an amazing week!

  21. Great haul this week.
    I absolutely loved Rebel of the Sands and Traitor to the Throne, and I'm definitely jealous of all your copies :)

  22. A new Sara Fine book?! Say what? I still need to buy (and read) Traitor to the Throne ;( *Sigh* A new Cashore book that is bound to be out of this world.

    Good luck with school, you're almost there!

    1. YES! And it's YA -- I honestly thought it was adult (before reading it). Not a bad thing at all, I liked it!

      I hope you get the chance to read Traitor to the Throne, Liza!

      Thank you! <3

  23. How did you get a manuscript of Lu's new book, and where do I get one! WOW! You had a fabulous week in the book department! Hopefully next week will be just as wonderful. :)

    1. I traded it from someone on Twitter! I have no clue where she got it. o_o Thank you, Anna!

  24. Wow, this is such a great haul! So many congratulations on all the awesome new stuff--here's hoping you enjoy it all! <3 I can't comment much on the books themselves... I haven't read any of them, and don't recognize most! I guess I've got some research to do, huh?

    Thank you again for stopping by my StS earlier--much appreciated!

    1. I hope so! And you probably wouldn't have read most of them because most of them publish months from now! With the exception of a few, like Traitor to the Throne. Which I recommend!

      You're welcome! ^_^

  25. Ahh you got some really awesome books this week! And I somehow missed the cover for Jane Unlimited but oh man its so pretty! I so cannot wait for that book!

    1. It seemed to fly a little under the radar? Which is sad, because Cashore is my FAVORITE. Man, that thought makes me feel old (that Cashore doesn't have a ton of hype like she used to - or so it seems). :/

  26. The Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase sounds really interesting. I may have to look into it! - Katie

  28. What an interesting selection of books! I hope that you love them all. :-)

  29. I've really loved some of Tessa Bailey's books and absolutely loathed others (they can be sooooo OTT sometimes) but from the blurb I think Disorderly Conduct and I will get along very well indeed. Requesting that one for sure!

    Jane Unlimited...I'm still shook.

    Replies
    1. SERIOUSLY THOUGH! Her books are so hit or miss. The dirty talk can be reaaaaaaaally over the top. But I think this new series should be a little different? Especially since it's Tessa's first book with a this big publisher.

      Riiiiiiiiight? I can wait!
