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, July 13th to Saturday, July 19th?
(all links to Goodreads are provided!)
In the mail:
Thank you for the trade, Stephanie! Now I have an ARC set of Pivot Point and Split Second! I know my good friend Pili will be happy ;D
Thank you, Random House! I featured this one as a WoW choice a little while back. I'm honored to have the chance to read it!
Thank you so much, Celeste! She is seriously the best. So many huggles.
Dang, I've been waiting for this request to be approved since April O_O But I haven't read the book yet, so I guess that works out!
I usually steer clear of New Adult contemporary romance novels these days, but it's Ann Aguirre. How could I stay away?!
Is it bad that while everyone is thinking of the Backstreet Boys song, I'm thinking of Justin Bieber? I hate Bieber, but I didn't grow up with the Backstreet Boys so...
Another great week! Especially in books ;D
I'm tempted to request Ann Aguirre's NA books too. They look great! I have a bunch of other September ARCs to get to, though, and I've never had luck with Harlequin on Netgalley. I hope you enjoy your new books. :)ReplyDelete
I've heard nothing but awesome things about these new books of hers! And I know what you mean - I'm still stuck in August O_O Good luck! Thank you ^_^Delete
Nice haul! I picked up Take Me On last week. Now I just need to slot it into my reading schedule.ReplyDelete
My STS @ Marilyn's Mystery Blog
Excellent! And I'm in the same boat - April already passed, and that's when I would have read/reviewed Take Me On. Oh well!Delete
I really do enjoy Ann Aguirre's books a lot. Her Razorland series was so good. Enjoy your new books.ReplyDelete
Books of Love
I agree, I loved Enclave - and I just read Mortal Danger and enjoyed it. Thank you, Grace!Delete
I'm so curious what you'll think of Invaded. Great haul of books. I've not heard of the RH fantasy so I'll have to go and look it up.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Kristen! Hopefully I'll have Invaded read and reviewed... "soon". Heh.Delete
OOoh very nice haul! Hope you enjoy them all!ReplyDelete
My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
Oh my goodness, Alyssa, you know I love you but right now I'm so damned jealous of you... YOU GOT INVADED!!! Cannot wait to hear what you think!!ReplyDelete
And yessss! Split Second!! Now you can read both back to back!! (if you can fit it in the schedule!!). =D
I WISH I COULD SEND IT TO YOU WITH SPENDING LIKE $100! D: Seriously though, I really want to let you borrow things :( Hopefully you get an advance copy as well!Delete
And yup, I've worked out things with PP and SS, so that's a good thing :D Thank you!
OOOOOH. TELL ME HOW LARK RISING IS! On one hand it sounds awesome on the other it sounds sort of cheesy with the whole light dark thing >_>ReplyDelete
I shall! I know what you mean about the cliche - hopefully, it's not what we're thinking ;DDelete
Looks like an awesome haul. I need to start reading some of Ann Agguire's work!ReplyDelete
YOU DO!! Start with Mortal Danger, perhaps :)Delete
YAY for gorgeous books :D So many awesome ones. <3 I hope you love them sweetie. And omg. Invaded :D I won the first ARC; hih, and it was peeeerfect. So good. I hope you love it :) Happy reading sweetie. <3ReplyDelete
Thank you, Carina! I know about your win. I'm so glad to hear that! Thank you!Delete
Oh great haul, it's always exciting to get books in the mail :DReplyDelete
My new pretties :)
You always have awesome hauls, Alyssa. :) I have read the first book in Katie's series, but I haven't got around to the others yet. It's crazy that they are just now approving it when you requested it in April. I hope you enjoy everything you got.ReplyDelete
Here is my post: http://justin941bookblog.blogspot.com/2014/07/stacking-shelves-9-blog-recap.html
Awww, thanks! I feel like the weeks you've visited are abnormal compared to the other haul weeks :o I really enjoyed Pushing the Limits - it's definitely my favorite (of the three I've read). Thank you, Justin!Delete
It is so exciting when you get a WoW ARC, no? I was beyond excited when I got one, since I was "waiting on" it and all, and now I didn't have to ;) The Ann Aguirre books... I can't. I cannot get the 90s boy band songs out of my head! My friends were always SO obsessed with those songs/bands so (unfortunately) I will know all the words for the rest of my days ;) I do hope you enjoy them though, if they are good I can (potentially?) get past the BSB references! Have a great week, hope you love all the books :)ReplyDelete
-Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight
I definitely agree! And LOL I'm sorry to hear that! I was born in the 90s, so I'm familiar with the songs, but they're not my jam haha. Thank you very much, Shannon!Delete
I will admit, I am a tad bit jealous that you got Invaded haha! I loved Split Second, but I am a bit sad that there isn't another book in that series :( I hope you enjoy all of your books! :DReplyDelete
Thank you for stopping by earlier today! :)
Definitely request it from Disney! It's too early for requested ARCs to be sent, but it's good to be added to the list! Thank you, Amber <3Delete
Really cool haul. Love the books with Backstreet Boys song titles :)ReplyDelete
Shane @ Itching for Books
Ha! I'm glad you like them! ;DDelete
Oooh! *runs to NG for As Long As You Love Me* I really need that book in my life. LOL. Invaded! Sweet! I haven't read Alienated yet... sigh. But SOON. I will. I've been in a huge reading/blogging/everything slump. Haha. Happy reading chica!ReplyDelete
You need them for sure, since you LOVE NA contemporary romance!! And aww, it sounds like a post-BEA and post-convention kind of slump, I hear other bloggers have the same problem after major conventions. You got this, Jess!Delete
Your haul looks soooo good! I'm going to have to add the Anna Aguirre books to my list for sure. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Hope you read/love them then, Keira! You're welcome :)Delete
INVADED! Okay, I haven't read Alienated yet but heard tons of good things, so still excited. :) Ohh, how I kind of love and hate lyric titles, I just keep singing them in my head, like I did with (Don't You) Forget About Me, haha. Happy reading! :)ReplyDelete
Kirsty @ StudioReads
Alienated is super great! I hope you read the duo! And LOL I keep hearing that :D Thank you!Delete
I really want to read LARK RISING...it looks amazing. What a great haul! Thanks for visiting mine:-)ReplyDelete
It does! I'm really excited about that one. Thank you, and you're welcome!Delete
Oh man, would love to get a read of Invaded! hope you enjoy. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Dudee! You've read Alienated, right? Hit me up sometime in the future, if you don't get Invaded ;)Delete
Great haul this week! I reaaallly need to read Pivot Point (and Split Second) soon! I've heard so many awesome things!ReplyDelete
Oh, can't wait to hear your thoughts on Invaded! I was sitting on the fence with Alienated, but I think I liked it enough to keep going on to the next book. Hope you enjoy your new books!
Here's my SP & STS (:
I'm in the same boat, Cyn! I'll be binge-reading the series in the next two weeks. I'm glad you liked Alienated enough to want to read the next book! It's only a duology, so it's not like it's a long wait for the series to be over.Delete
I haven't read Take Me On either even though I've had it for a while, but I will since I love the series! Happy reading :)ReplyDelete
I'm glad you're enjoying the series! Thank you, Liza ^_^Delete
I got an approval of Take Me On from Netgalley pretty late. Maybe a couple of weeks ago, but I had given up hope. I'll have to get to it soon. I also got a copy of Like Water on Stone and the cover is prettier in person. Hope we both like it. Enjoy your books, Alyssa! :)ReplyDelete
THANK GOODNESS. It wasn't just me, phew. I hope you enjoy Like Water On Stone! Thank you, Rachel <3Delete
