Stacking the Shelves (#259)


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, December 3rd to Saturday, December 9th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



I read Letters to the Lost earlier this year and loved it! I got this ARC via trade (thank you, Kristen!). And I got Pacifica is from the publisher! Thank you, Tor! It is one of my most anticipated publications of 2018. 


From NetGalley:



A happy coincidence! I can't wait to start this book. I've read all of Kemmerer's books but I have to say, Letters to the Lost was her best. I'm quite sure More Than We Can Tell will be just as great! Thank you, Bloomsbury. =)

What a week! I had an amazing time in Philadelphia last weekend. I got to see Kel on Sunday which was awesome. Unfortunately this week wasn't great for me (at work especially) but it ended on a positive note. We're supposed to get snow here, which is exciting but also a little annoying because I wanted to do some shopping on Saturday. But, first snow of the season!

  1. Awesome stack of books! We're supposed to get snow as well! I don't mind it, such not during the holiday shopping season. It's a huge pain to get around. I'm glad your week ended on a positive note. Here's to a better week!
    Happy reading xoxo

    1. We got about 5 inches! Not too bad for the first snow shower. I actually went out to shop on Saturday WHILE it was snowing. :D I really needed to go though.

      Thank you, Helena! Same to you!

  2. Ooh, Pacifica! That one looks really interesting and I think I marked it down to take a closer look. I'd be interested in your review! And yep, snow for us tonight, but hopefully it won't be that much because we have a lot of places to go and errands to run tomorrow too.

    1. I'm going to try and read it soon! The publisher likes seeing reviews within two weeks of publication so unfortunately it may be a while before I actually review it. :/ But I'm excited about it!

  6. Was great seeing you too! I'm sorry your week didn't go well, but like you said, at least it ended on a good note. We're getting a little snow here, but it's not sticking. Hopefully it's same or better where you are so you can still go shopping!

    1. Awww, the snow wasn't sticking?? We got about 5 inches total and it looked really nice. Sadly it's melting away. :/ Shopping went well, even though it was super snowy the whole time!

  8. Pacifica looks awesome! I think I want it for the cover, and if the story is good, then bonus. :) Glad you had a good time in Philly, and yay for snow (if you get it). We had our first snow this week and everything is white (and cold- brrr)!

  14. I keep hearing great things about Brigid Kemmerer's books. I think my library has Letters to the Lost so maybe I'll read it over winter break. Glad to hear you had an amazing time in Philly last weekend! I lived on the outskirts of Philly during my entire four years of college, but I never went into the city much, which I regret now that it's not as accessible. Hope this week is better than last! :)
