Stacking the Shelves (#237)


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, July 2nd to Saturday, July 8th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you, St. Martin's Press, Penguin, Little Brown, and Bloomsbury! Some unsolicited, some requested, some for blog tours. The pubs were good to me this week. 😍


Swag from a trade

Thank you so much, Amanda! She is awesome.


From NetGalley:



No I do not need another book right now, but I want to indulge in this one! Thanks a lot, Nick! 😁


From Edelweiss:



I still need to read the first book (which I have, but it publishes in August). I'm very excited about this series! I love Tessa Bailey's books.


Reviews from this week:

I had a great week overall! My birthday was on Wednesday (I turned 22), and I had a day-off on Tuesday for the Independence Day holiday. Plus this was the first week I've had my new phone (I got it last Saturday) and I am in love! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. =)

  1. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend too! :D ooh, new Tessa Bailey book! I've only read a couple of her older stories but they're always pretty romantic with lots of fan-inducing times, LOL.

    I can't wait for Buried Heart- I've been really enjoying this series and can't believe we're at the finale! Lots of finales to catch up to this summer, especially regarding fantasy books. :) curious to hear your thoughts on Godsgrave and Jane Unlimited. Happy reading!

    1. Tessa's older books were so good! Not that her new books aren't, but her old Brazen ones were classics. :D

      I'm super thrilled to have Buried Heart! The series is a favorite of mine and I'm hoping it ends well. You already know I'm excited about Jane, Unlimited. ;) Thank you, Aila!

  2. I have Trust on my TBR for next week. I am hoping I like it as much as the Stage Dive books. I really want to read Because You Love to Hate Me. I think it will be fabulous.

    1. Dude, I am really behind too. This past semester took a chunk out of everything blog-related and reading-related. -.- I'm trying to get back on track but it is hard!

  7. I'm excited to be part of Buried Heart, too. I have read books one and two, I haven't read The Girl at Midnight but it looked like a cool tour. Great books!

    1. YES! We celebrated my birthday on Independence Day so even though I had to work on the 5th, at least I had the day before to celebrate. ^_^

      I hope you enjoy Nevernight (and Godsgrave), Lauren!

    1. I think I will join Instagram, sometime this week! I took some pretty photos recent (not bookstagram-worthy, but definitely Instagram-worthy). :D Godsgrave is definitely going to appear in those photos. ;) Remember, I traded for a Jane arc a looooooong time ago! This is an unsolicited publisher-sent one. Not complaining!

      Thank you, Carina!

  18. I really need to get on and read some Kate Elliott sometime! Hope you enjoy the new books.

  19. I'm intrigued by Jane Unlimited just from the side view of the cover! Looks like a great haul for you this week. - Katie

  20. Trust is catching my eye. Happy belated birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jane, Unlimited looks so good (I've loved Kristin's past books!) so I'm curious to see what you have to say about it. Because You Love to Hate Me also looks good, but I'm always a little weary of anthologies. Happy belated birthday, and I hope you have a great week! :)

  22. Happy birthday! I hope it was great! You picked up some great books this week. The publishers were very good to you for sure :)
