Stacking the Shelves (#263)


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 31st to Saturday, January 6th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



A nice surprise from Sourcebooks Casablanca - thank you! I've read the book and sadly I did not enjoy it. The series in general is okay though! The author has great potential.


From NetGalley:



I actually meant to request this months ago but completely forgot to do so. In any case, Forever gave me a very quick approval! Thanks, team!


From Edelweiss:



The only Harper book I downloaded this round! It sounds amazing.


Favorite Instagram post from this week:

Happy New Year! It was a short week for me and I barely got anything accomplished in terms of blogging. But I had a very productive work week and I feel good about the new year so far. I hope it will be a good year - for everyone! =)

  4. Happy New Year! These books look pretty great. Too bad you didn't enjoy Heart on Fire, though. It's a series I do wanna do someday.

    1. I loved A Promise of Fire, and book two wasn't bad, but book three... not great for me. :/

  5. Happy New Year and I am glad to see it was such a good week for you personally.

    I liked Heart on Fire, but I was hoping for more in that one. But I do love the writing because I just can't put her stuff down, I just become so hooked!!

    1. I know what you mean about her writing and being hooked! Only real reason why I finished the book in the first place. D:

  6. Happy New Year! I'm glad work went well. I did okay with blogging this week but I really need to get something written and scheduled tomorrow so it's not so last minute this week. haha

    1. I need to do a little scheduling as well! I've been doing poorly in terms of reviews in 2018 already so I need to step it up. Last minute seems to be my way these days, which I hate!
