Stacking the Shelves (#227)


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 23rd to Saturday, April 29th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

I haven't seen any of my mail from this past week yet! I'll update when I (finally) go home on Saturday night.

But here is my mail from two weeks ago:



Thank you, Bloomsbury!



Thank you, Kimberley! I won this from a giveaway. I loved the previous books in this series!



Thank you, Jaime! She is the sweetest! Now I shall binge-read the first two books in this series.


Updated: here is this past week's mail!




Eeeep! I am so excited! I have this book preordered, but now my collection is complete. 



Thank you, Sabrina, for this wonderful trade! Guys, she is so cool. =)



Wheeeee, thank you ,Tor/Lili! I was not expecting this so it was a fantastic surprise!




For my growing Ahdieh collection! Thank you for the trade, Rachel!


From the bookstore:




Today is Independent Bookstore Day! I visited The Ivy Bookshop and bought this beautiful book. I have the ebook and an ARC, and now I have the gorgeous hardcover! And I got the special (free!) edition of Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell. Win!

From NetGalley:



Thank you, St. Martin's Griffin!


From Edelweiss:



Yaaassss, finally! This book follows the only Cavendish male (of the four siblings), and I can't wait. I'm sure this will be a fun story, like its predecessors! Thank you, Avon!


Not a bad week for me! This weekend is a really fun one a Hopkins - Spring Fair Weekend - and I'm loving the weather. Have a lovely weekend, friends!

  1. Enjoy your spring fair.

    Oh, those are nice goodies. I still need to read that Kimberly Griffiths series. That Jack the Ripper one looks pretty good, too. I'll have to check it out.

    Have a good weekend, Alyssa!

  8. Oooh Because You Love to Hate Me! I am not usually into samplers but I am a little jealous you got one! I really hope that one lives up to the title and the hype.

    I didn't even know there was a Star-Touched Queen novella, much less that it was up on NetGalley. I definitely need to run and request that. Thanks for the heads up!

    Happy reading and I hope your Spring Fair is fab!

    1. Same, I don't bother to actually read samplers usually, but I'll be checking out this one.

      It's still on NetGalley, so I think you're in good shape!

      Thank you, Jessie!

  25. Woah! What a huge haul! They all look SOOOOOOOO good, particularly the Ahdieh and Stalking Jack the Ripper.

    I'm currently completely avoiding your Flame in the Mist review since I'm reading that one now (a little late I know!) but I've loved the few pages I've managed to get to so far.

    I've been offline for a little while so I'm still attempting to catch up! Looking forward to seeing more updates this weekend!
