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 15th to Saturday, December 21st?
(all links to Goodreads are provided!)
In the mail:
Okay, seriously, Scholastic? I love you, but send me something I DON'T have please! This is my third ARC! Well, I have an eARC, and now TWO print ARCs. Thanks?
THANK YOU, JESS! This is the surprise gift she got me - she knew that I loved both the ARC and finished copy covers, and I wanted both. And now I have both! So sweet of her.
Okay, I have an ARC of this one already. But I wasn't going to turn down an invite from the publisher!
That's it. THIS IS GOOD :D
Merry early Christmas, to those who celebrate! :)
I've heard so many amazing amazing things about Defy. I just send Scholastic an email about Fire & Flood and completely forgot about Defy. I just saw your review and it seems like you loved it too! I don't believe they sent it to you three times?! Wow! I hope you enjoy your other new books as well! I've been seeing a lot of White Hot Kiss.ReplyDelete
It's a great novel! And thank you for reading my review! That's sweet of you. I hope you get to read both Defy and F&F soon, Laura! And White Hot Kiss, if you were interested :)Delete
Wow. They sent you Defy three times. Well then I suggest a giveaway for the two arcs. Heard very good things about. Jennifer L. Armentrout is amazing. Come visit me as well.ReplyDelete
Definitely - in January! I plan on it.Delete
Awesome books :D Sigh. The Burning Sky. <3 So so good. I too love both the covers :) Happy reading!ReplyDelete
They're so amazing, right?! Beautiful.Delete
Oh so envious that you got White Hot Kiss again!! I am dying to read that one! Happy Reading!ReplyDelete
My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
You can request it when the New Year comes around! It will be on NetGalley.Delete
Ooooh, so envious of you getting White Hot Kiss! I can't wait to get my hads on that one!ReplyDelete
Happy reading & Merry Xmas!
You'll be able to request it when the New Year comes around!Delete
That' so funny that you got so many copies of Defy! I don't think that's ever happened to me:) I hear Burning Sky is awesome, so congrats on your finished copy! Here's my STS.ReplyDelete
First time it's happened to me! I'm like, STAHP D: Thank you, Tammy!Delete
Defy seems to be everywhere! I hope you enjoy all of your books :-)ReplyDelete
I'm on hold at the library for "White Hot Kiss". It just looks so good. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
That's cool! And it does :)Delete
Ooooh, I JUST read Defy and freaking loved it. I had an eARC of it but I've just pre-order a hardcover of it. It's one I want sitting on my shelves. I got the invite for White Hot Kiss but I didn't click it cause I'm trying to help raise my netgalley percentage lol! I already have the physical book so I'm good ;-)ReplyDelete
The Burning Sky - I have an ARC of that but I haven't read it yet. I've heard mixed things but I'm going to get to it eventually.
Great books this week, though! :D
That's great! I'm glad to hear that. And ooo, I see what you mean! I figure that I was going to read the book anyway, so I might as well accept the invite and send feedback on NetGalley as well as directly to the publicist. Looks good, you know? Or something.Delete
I LOVED The Burning Sky! Easily one of my favorite books of 2013. I hope you read and love it, Jess!
Thank you ^_^
Merry Christmas! Scholastic REALLY wants you to read Defy...too funny. I see you are reading Wicked Folly--very curious as to what you thinkReplyDelete
And the funny thing is, I've already read it (and loved it). They sent this review copy AFTER I read and reviewed Defy. Weird, right?Delete
I'm almost finished - I'm now getting to the climax. Craziness is happening!
I'm glad you enjoyed DEFY! As you know, our reviewer Lily did and I think it's a great crossover to middle readers entering young adult for the first time. Thanks for being such an AWESOME blogger-friend and I hope you have a VERY merry Christmas as well! :)ReplyDelete
I'm glad to hear that! I agree - it IS a great cross-over novel.Delete
You're very welcome, but thank YOU for being amazing!
Great haul!!! I can't wait until White Hot Kiss comes out!! I love anything by Jennifer L. Armentrout!ReplyDelete
Hope you like all of your new books :D
I hope you love White Hot Kiss, when you read it!Delete
Gahh! You're so lucky, Alyssa. I requested Defy from NG but got disapproved. I e-mailed a request to Scholastic Philippines but they said, they don't keep ARCs. I e-mailed the overall in charge for Scholastic ARCs but never got a reply. Hahahaha. Maybe print ARCs aren't really for me. Le sigh.ReplyDelete
I am happy though that publishers really love you, Alyssa.
Thanks for sharing and have a safe weekend.
Charlotte @ Thoughts and Pens
Aww, that is tough! And I understand though - Defy probably hasn't sold international rights to the Philippines. Chin up, girl!Delete
Wow, three copies of Defy. I've been sent two of the same book before but never three. :)ReplyDelete
Lucky you getting White Hot Kiss!! I'll have to keep an eye out for it on NetGalley.
Thanks for sharing your haul this week. Here is mine.
Have a great day and a very merry Christmas. x
Isn't it ridiculous?! In a good way, I suppose. And it'll be up in the New Year! I'm sure you'll get approved. Happy holidays!Delete
I got Defy a few weeks back, looks so so good! And The Burning Sky just the same, must get on that one asap.ReplyDelete
READ IT! It is quite awesome. And The Burning Sky is fabulous - I hope you read and enjoy that one as well!Delete
Defy looks awesome. Enjoy your multiple copies :PReplyDelete
My Stacking The Shelves
It was pretty great!Delete
White Hot Kiss is so amazing! It's one of my favorite JLA books. Defy also sounds great. I hope you enjoy all your books :)ReplyDelete
That's good to hear! And Defy is probably one of my favorite fantasy novels ;)Delete
I really enjoyed White Hot Kiss :) I am already dying for the next book in the series. The Burning Sky looks so good! Happy Holidays!!!!!ReplyDelete
Here's my STS:
Lindy@ A Bookish Escape
YAY, that's awesome! And you should read The Burning Sky.Delete
I have Defy but I haven't read it yet but it sounds like it's going to be interesting as everyone seems to like it! :) White Hot Kiss looks really good! Hope you enjoy all your reads and thanks for stopping by my blog!ReplyDelete
I liked it! It was quite a good fantasy novel. Thank you!Delete
I have heard amazing things about The Burning Sky, so I'm glad that you've got a nice finished copy! I hope you enjoy all your reads Alyssa! :)ReplyDelete
It's a fabulous read! And me too! I love the finished copy shininess. Thank you, Jasprit!Delete
Oooh! White Hot Kiss looks lovely *.* Oh how I want it!!! Lovely haul :DReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you get to read it sometime soon!Delete
YAY! I'm so glad you got the package! And I'm glad you liked getting the new cover! <3 I'm so thankful for you this year girl- I've loved getting to know you! That's crazy Scholastic sent you another Defy and you got another WHK! :) But very cool too. Happy reading my dear friend and Merry Christmas! I will make sure to let you know when the other package arrives. With lots of squeeing. :) Hahaha!ReplyDelete
Aww, see, now you have cued the waterworks. *SOBS* You are so kind! *squishes*Delete
Lots of great books this week, even if you already have multiple copies, haha. I just finished Defy and it was pretty good. I hope you enjoy all your books. (I did like The Burning Sky.)ReplyDelete
Happy holidays and thanks for stopping by The Book Hookup.
I'm glad you liked Defy! I'm definitely going to pass it on to someone else - because I kind of want a finished copy LOL. And YAY you read The Burning Sky! Of all the other commenters, I think you're the only one that read it. PHEW. You know all about it then :DDelete
You're welcome, and thank YOU!
Great haul! That's funny, I wonder if they're keeping track of copies getting sent out. I am hoping to read Defy soon, it sounds like everything thinks it's a pretty cute/good book. Hope you enjoy your new books!ReplyDelete
Here's my Sunday Post & STS
PS. Bookmunchies' is having a giveaway too (:
I wonder as well! Perhaps they should send me something else ;) I wouldn't call Defy "cute", but definitely "good"!Delete
Scholastic is interesting that way - occasionally I'll receive the ARC and the final copy as well. Not that I'm complaining because then I of course give one copy away! I love The Burning Sky covers as well!!! Friends are the best!ReplyDelete
That's so cool! I'm definitely going to either gift or give away Defy. And I agree - especially Jess! She is fantastic ^_^Delete
LOL, I guess they REALLY want you to read Defy, eh? Not a hint or anything. :) And that's lovely of Jess to send you The Burning Sky! Both of the covers really are cool, though, so I definitely get why you want both. :)ReplyDelete
MERRY CHRISTMAS ALYSSA!!! :)
Seriously though! And I already read it AND sent my review via email and NetGalley! Yet they send me another.Delete
Jess is fabulous! The covers ARE gorgoeus :D
Thank you! Happy holidays!
Looks like it was good week for you! Hope you enjoy these & Happy Holidays!ReplyDelete
Check out my STS this week!
