Stacking the Shelves (#266)


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, January 21st to Saturday, January 27th?

In the mail:



From the publisher! I'm so excited to be on the blog tour. And of course to read this conclusion novel, which is actually already available in the UK! Thanks for the ARC, Penguin!


Blood and Sand swag

My preorder of the book is here! And some preorder swag - huge thanks to the author and Tor! I love the pin especially. You can read my review of the book HERE!


From NetGalley:

  Contagion


There are so many new HarperCollins Summer '18 novels on Edelweiss but I was successful in limiting myself to two! I'm very excited about both of these.

What a week! I went to the gym four times this week again, which felt great (although I'm tired and sore!). I baked five dozen blueberry muffins on Thursday evening for work on Friday, and they were a hit! It was a good week overall. =)

  22. Blood and Sand looks great. And those muffins, you made my mouth water! *lol* Now I have to bake some myself, to get that taste ... At the moment I am more a couch potato than anything else *lol* No energy with the sniffles I got. But it sounds like you are enjoying it, despite the pain. So keep going!
    Thanks for visiting my blog the other day.

    Best wishes
