Stacking the Shelves (#257)


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, November 19th to Saturday, November 25th?

This week was a short work week, with the Thanksgiving holiday. I also had no new #ManBunGuy stories, though I did see him on Monday (it was rather uneventful). I hope everyone celebrating had a great Thanksgiving (and Black Friday)! I did some online shopping and got an amazing pair of boots, and other things, so on the shopping side of things, I'm happy. :D Thanksgiving itself went well (though I was exhausted afterward). I'm not looking forward to Monday!

  2. Oh now you did get quite the haul. Those do all look good.

    I didn't really do any purchasing for Black Friday just hung out with friends and went to a movie.

    Have a great weekend, Alyssa!

  6. Oh my gosh Alyssa I'm super jealous that you received a copy of Hero at the Fall, the ending to the last fall just about killed me, so I can't wait to dive into this one! You'll have to let me know when you start it!

    1. For real! I gave an arm and a leg for it, but I regret nothing! I soooo want to start it now but then I'd want to review it now. D:

  7. I'm dying to read The Cruel Prince! I saw your Thanksgiving photo on Instagram and the food looked amazing! But so much work, right? I'm still not finished putting all the dishes away😐 Have a great week!

    1. Sooooo much work! My mom, sister and I were insanely busy. I kept washing the same dishes over and over because we kept reusing them after they were washed. Of course, the alternative was to have 50 million of each dish. :O I'm still in recovery too, Tammy!

  8. Can't wait to get my hands on The Cruel Prince! I love Holly Black and have enjoyed every novel I've read from her so, I have high hopes for this one! I haven't heard of Heart of Iron before but, it does look extremely interesting so, I'll definitely look it up! Hope you have a wonderful week and enjoy your new books!

    1. I think I've only read one book by her (The Darkest Part of the Forest) - which I liked. I'm hoping this one is good. Heart of Iron was okay! Not amazing for me though. :/ Thank you, Elena!

  14. Oh that's a nice haul! Can you believe I've never read anything by Holly Black? I've heard so many great things about her though, and The Cruel Prince sounds like it might be a good place to jump on board!

  16. Oh no... I better read the two other books before Sightwitch by Susan Dennard is released. Enjoy your new boots and books :)

    1. LOL! It's a good excuse! Sightwitch is just a novella so you don't HAVE to read the first two, but it certainly would give things context. :D
