Stacking the Shelves (#247)


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, September 10th to Saturday, September 16th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Ahhhhhh. AHHHHH. It's here! I won this from Kincaid's giveaway on Twitter. I feel blessed! I loved The Diabolic and can't wait to dive in. Did I mention that it is signed? And personalized!



Thank you, Random House! It's a lovely finished copy. Modeled by my sister!


From NetGalley:

  


As soon as these were available for download, I one-clicked! I couldn't resist. I loved A Promise of Fire and Breath of Fire. Kincade is new to me in terms of her romance, but not her YA!


From Edelweiss: 



HelenKay Dimon is an amazing romance writer! I really enjoyed the previous companion novels in this series, The Fixer and The Enforcer. This new one sounds great!

Favorite Instagram post from this week:



This week was an up-and-down one for me. I had a lot of deadlines to meet, and I worked a lot of overtime. Friday was rough for personal reasons but I'm doing better. This week went by incredibly quickly and I'm looking forward to taking advantage of this very lovely weekend!

  1. Hope you have a great weekend Alyssa! I'm looking forward to Warcross- in fact it's the next one I'm gonna read I think. :)

  4. OOh nice! Congrats on the win! I just started The Empress yesterday after reading The Diabolic! Liking it so far and can't wait to see where it goes! Ooh Amanda Bouchet's latest one! I refrained from requesting that one since I still need to read book 2 and I am not sure when I will get to that! I was hoping to read "spooky" read this month and next, but so far it hasn't happened as I now I will have at least 3 other books release in the next two weeks that I will want to read asap! It's truly the reader's curse to be excited about sooo many books and not have enough time to read them all! Lol!

    Hope you enjoy the new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

      I am so excited to have Heart on Fire! I loved books one and two, so I'm hoping book three will be awesome. Hopefully you get a chance to finish the series, Jessica!

  28. I do hope your're doing better Alyssa :) I have to get caught up with the Breath of Fire series (I loved that book!) I'm starting Warcross next and I finished Blood Guard a couple of days ago and it was okay.
