Stacking the Shelves (#230)


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, May 14th to Saturday, May 20th?

In the mail:

Errrr, as per my usual for the last four years, I will update this when I go home on Saturday evening! :D

Updated!




Thank you, Penguin! I enjoyed The Glittering Court and I'm looking forward to read this companion novel. 



Unsolicited - but thank you, Simon & Schuster!


Flame in the Mist, The Valiant, Rebel of the Sands samplers

Thank you for the trade, Rachel! More for my collections. :D


Passenger/Wayfarer notebook, Traitor to the Throne tattoo, The Diabolic buttons

YAY! Thank you, Ari! This was a great trade. =)


From NetGalley:



YAY! Thank you, Sweve/SMP! I loved Ex-Con and Outlaw, and I can't wait to start this novel. 



I am thrilled to have this book! It sounds great and I adore this author's other books. =)

  26. Midnight Jewel! I haven't even read the first one yet and I am still envious of you. I hope it's excellent.

    Loove the cover for Flame in the Mist! That's a book I just got this week, too. I am tempted by Valiant but I've heard mixed reviews -- I hope it works out good for you!

    I looove that Passenger/Wayfarer notebook. That is gorgeous!

    Happy reading and writing ;)
