Stacking the Shelves (#245)


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, August 27th to Saturday, September 2nd?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

The following are from last week! I got a ton of mail on Saturday the 26th (very unexpectedly), so I didn't post them in last week's haul. 



This was a lovely surprise! Thank you, Novl team! I love Rush's books and can't wait to read something new. =)


Graceling Realm Series tote bag

Thank you so much, Sara! She knew how big a fan of the series I am, which I appreciated. It is PERFECT!



I love this! And the best part is that the t-shirt (size S) fits perfectly. This never happens! Thank you, BHM!



My very first foreign editions ever! Fitting that they would be of my favorite books. I love these covers so much, I couldn't resist buying!


And the rest below are from this week!



Thank you so much, Disney! These are perfect for the holidays - can you believe it is coming up to that time already?


Flame in the Mist, Six of Crows, Strange the Dreamer swag

The second half of my trade with Nikole! Thank you, ma'am!


The best package from a friend! Including ARCs of This Shattered World, Illusive, The Forbidden Wish, Once and Always, a signed paperback of Duke of Midnight, a Six of Crows pouch, and buttons!

Thank you, Kelly! She is so awesome and the nicest person! We've known each other for quite some time and I can't imagine going through all these years of blogging without her. 


From NetGalley:



I've already read this book and I reviewed it yesterday! It was quite good.



Gotta love Harper auto-approval... I can't wait to read this new West book!


Reviews from this week:

Favorite Instagram post from this week:

I had a great week overall! It went by so quickly and honestly I can't believe it is September already. August wasn't my best month in reading and considering how many books publish in September, this isn't a good thing. BUT. I have a lot of reviews and posts to come, so that's great!

I have a giveaway running that ends soon! See the tweet below if you want to enter. =)

  3. Wow! Looks like you've had an amazing week. I can't wait to start reading Devils & Thieves, I hope we both enjoy it.
    And don't worry about being behind on your September books, I am as well. My goal was to finish all of them before school starts next week, but I don't think I can do it in time.
    Have a lovely week :)
    Here is my STS

    1. Honestly though! I was like, I am not adding these to the STS, I'll just post them next week when I have a lighter haul. But even this week's haul wasn't "light"! LOL.

      I hope you have a great weekend too, Sophia!

    1. It is a lot of books! But there are only two reviews copies here that I've not read (Devils & Thieves, and the new Kasie West one). So it's not so bad! =)

  18. I can't believe it's September either! I feel like this summer just flew by, but I love, love, love Fall so I'm okay with that. Kasie's new book looks super adorable so I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on it. That's awesome to hear that the Nasty Woman shirt fit so well. That's always the hardest part about free t-shirts...they either seem to really work or really not lol Have a great week, Alyssa! :)

    1. Honestly though! It was strange for me because I spent the summer working at my new full-time job, rather than interning like I usually did when I was in school. Changes, changes!

      Dude! I was so impressed when I saw that it was a size S! And a fitted one, not a uni-sized S. So great!

      Thank you, Lauren!

    1. Thank you! I might actually try and read it soon because I'm not in the mood to read like 90% of the ARCs I have immediately coming up. I am definitely in the mood for D&T though. Thank you, Suzanne! <3
