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 29th to Saturday, January 4th?
(all links to Goodreads are provided!)
In the mail:
Ooo, what's in the box? :D
A hardcover copy of Classical Mythology by Nancy Conner
Two other things that I didn't feature in this picture because they are how-to kits...
Yes, this girl is an engineering major. But this girl loves the classics. I have this idea that has been swirling in my head for over a year, set in Ancient Greece, and heavily involving Greek mythology. That explains the first two books. I feel like EVERYONE should have a copy of Grimm's Fairy Tales. That explains that. The two how-to kits that I didn't feature are for me to challenge myself to learn things.
Barnes & Noble had a SALE, people. Go look, if you haven't yet!
Soooo excited to read this sequel! SQUEE!
And that was my week. I'm going back to school on Sunday, for three weeks of winter classes. Joy!
Awesome Haul Alyssa OMGoodness I would love to get my hands on the Grimm's Fairy Tales Book I just love and adore Grimm stories! Thanks for sharing Alyssa!ReplyDelete
It's like, $4 at Barnes & Noble's site! I love them too, which is why I had to get a copy. My pleasure!Delete
OOoh very nice!! I LOVE Greek mythology myself! A good Greek mythology book is called Mythology by Edith Hamilton! I read it a few years ago, before blogging, and it was a very nice one! And Grimm! Oh how I LOVE Grimm! I got one of the complete collections myself back in the days of Borders & Waldenbooks! Hope you enjoy all your new reads!ReplyDelete
My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
I believe I have that one as well, Jessica. Mythology for the win! And ooo, good, another Grimm fairy tales fan! Thank you ^_^Delete
OOH NOW YOU MAKE ME WANT A GRIMM'S FAIRY TALE BOOKReplyDelete
YOU SHOULD GET ONE ;)Delete
Nice. Now you made me want a Grimm's Fairy Tale Book. Awesome stack indeed.ReplyDelete
Books of Love
You should get one!Delete
Oh wow! That cover of Paranoia is a bit freaky! I hope you enjoy your books. :-)ReplyDelete
It is pretty creepy! Thank you.Delete
Ooh fun! Boxes are always great to get! I love Greek mythology too! And Paranoia is definitely a creepy cover! I haven't read the first book, but I hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
ESPECIALLY THE BIG ONES! I love packages. And Greek mythology. And the Night Walkers series. Thank you, Jess!Delete
Love the cover of Paranoia! I wasn't a very big fan of the first book, but I hope this series lives up to your expectations!ReplyDelete
I loved the first book - it was so original and unique and I was all like O_O Thank you, Bekka!Delete
That Grimm's Complete Fairytale Guide is really cool. I haven't read any of the original fairy tales, although I definitely want to eventually. Paranoia also sounds great. I've heard some pretty good things about the first one in that series :) I hope you enjoy all your books!ReplyDelete
I haven't read too many of the originals, so I thought it was a good idea. I was one of the ones who loved Insomnia, so I hope Paranoia is just as good! Thank you!Delete
I haven't heard of any of these books, but they look really interesting! Thanks for stopping by Spun With Words.ReplyDelete
Cool! You're welcome.Delete
I really want to check out the J.R. Johansson series. I heard some good things about the first one, but never got around to getting my hands on a copy. Great haul!ReplyDelete
It was excellent! I really enjoyed it.Delete
Paranoia looks really epic. And I love receiving package. (: I've never heard of those books before, but I hope you enjoy them. You're an engineering major? Dang girl! You get'em. :DReplyDelete
Engineering and Spanish, actually. But my primary major in environmental engineering.Delete
Greek myths and fairy tales! Two of my favorite things! I have a few books on Greek myths, but I don't think I have the original Brothers Grimm - I need to pick that up!ReplyDelete
Grimm's fairy tales rock! I've read some of the originals, but not all. Hence the purchase!Delete
I hope you enjoy all of your new books. I've read a few books recently that were based upon Greek Mythology and I loved them.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my STS earlier. I, too, have read a couple of the Gallagher Girls books. I plan on finishing that series this year. From what I have heard, it gets even better with every book.
And interesting. I've definitely read I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You, but I never read any of the other books. I'll trust your opinion.
Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales--NICE. I'd like to read some of those someday. I hope you enjoy it all! :DReplyDelete
I hope to at some point! Thank you, Jessica.Delete
Grimm's Fairy Tales are sooo fun! I have been reading quite a few for my Project Disney where I compare film to story! What a difference between the two!!ReplyDelete
Stacking the Shelves
Ooo, that is so cool! What a neat idea! I agree though - quite the difference!Delete
Oh, Paranoia is available! Can't wait to see what you think of it. I really need to read more of the Grimm fairy tales. Great haulReplyDelete
Thank you, Kristen! I'm hoping it's just as (or more) awesome than the first one. And the original fairy tales should be interesting :DDelete
I've wanted to read the original Grimm' s fairy tales for a long time!!ReplyDelete
Lauren from www.shootingstarsmag.blogspot.com
There's no time like the present!Delete
Those mythology books look amazing! And I'd love to read Grimm's fairy tales - enjoy them!ReplyDelete
Awesome! I want to learn more about Mythology too so I'll probably be looking these up soon :)ReplyDelete
My Showcase Sunday :)
Nice haul! And how awesome, you got the work of the Grimms!ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy reading your new books :D
I hope their works live up to their prestigious reputation! :)Delete

That's cool! And right?! You're welcome!Delete
Awesome haul! I love the cover of the Grimm fairy tales. And yes, everyone does need a copy it! I'm glad that classic/mythology is getting more popular in YA etc (: Hope you enjoy!ReplyDelete
Here's my Sunday Post & STS at Bookmunchies (:
It's creepy and pretty at the same time... maybe the fact that it is pretty makes it pretty. And I agree - I love the appearance of mythology!Delete
Looks like awesome books :D Not read any of them, but they sounds good. Happy reading sweetie. <3 :)ReplyDelete
I hope they are awesome! Thank you, Carina.Delete
That box looks huge in the picture! The only historical I've really liked was Grave Mercy, but then again it was about killer nuns so it was hard not to like it.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year and good luck in school!
It was gigantic! Definitely going to put lots of books in there, to store. Grave Mercy was epic! I still need to read Dark Triumph though. Thank you so much, Nereyda!Delete
Paranoia looks good, hope you enjoy!ReplyDelete
It does. Thanks!Delete
I love Grimm's Fairytales. I didn't know that you were an engineering major! That's awesome :) Paranoia looks good! Thanks for stopping by my blog!ReplyDelete
Lindy@ A Bookish Escape
YES! Environmental engineering. You're welcome, and thank you!Delete
I've been meaning to read Insomnia, but haven't gotten to it yet. I hope you love the sequel just as much. Great haul!ReplyDelete
It's a good one! Thank you :)Delete
OMG those are so awesome!! Hope you love them all and thanks for stopping by my blogReplyDelete
Thank you, and my pleasure!Delete
I love Grimm's fairytales! They're just so cool and.. grim. ;) (sorry, couldn't help myself!) Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
YES! Definitely. Love the pun, girl, LOVE IT :D My pleasure!Delete
Aren't sales the best? I had to resist buying things or I would be more poor than I normally am. :) YOU ARE RIGHT that everyone needs Grimm's fairy tales! I got a copy recently, and I love it. So fun to pick up and read a story or two every so often. Plus the originals are just so cool.ReplyDelete
And yay for school? I start back tomorrow, so booooooooo. :)
Sales are the worst/best... I need to stop LOL. The originals are cool! It's interesting to see how twisted people make the stories. The originals seem wacky.Delete
Have fun at school! Winter classes are in session for me. Blah!
The cover of Paranoia REALLY creeps me out. I mean, no one wants to look up your nose you know? :PReplyDelete
Enjoy all your lovely books Alyssa! :D<3
Never thought of it that you, you know!Delete
Thank you, Kelly!
