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, August 24th to Saturday, August 30th?
(all links to Goodreads are provided!)
In the mail:
A sampler is on Edelweiss. A SAMPLER. Still, better than nothing :D As you can see, I didn't go crazy with Harper's latest uploads. I already have Polaris, so I don't need an eARC!
Boring week in terms of books, which is totally fine with me, because I moved in on Wednesday afternoon! And then classes started on Thursday. Smart, eh? Hehe. The first two days were great though, I love my schedule and classes this semester! *feels happy*
I wouldn't call it a boring week. Only adding one book gives you a chance to catch up a little. Ha ha who am I kidding. I don't think we'll ever catch up.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you had a great start to the semester. Hope the rest is just as awesome.
My StS @ Marilyn's Mystery Blog
YES! Very true! I can at least pretend that I'm catching up.Delete
Thank you, Marilyn!!
That's a good week! At least you didn't add to the TBR pile much since the textbooks came in. And those usually take priority sometimes! ;) LOL!ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy your sampler! And the textbooks too. Like that they're good subjects! ;)
My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
Those textbooks though... I dread lugging them back to college lol. Thank you, Jessica!Delete
That looks like a good book. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Diane @ Diane's Book Blog
Thank you, Diane!Delete
I was kind of annoyed when I downloaded The Orphan Queen only to find out that it was a sampler. It didn't say anywhere on the EW page that it was a sampler and I'm not a reader who likes samplers.ReplyDelete
Anyways, that's good that you already like your schedule this quarter. I start school on the 8th! Good luck with the semester and happy reading, Alyssa!
It doesn't give a warning on the EW page! But I knew beforehand. I so understood the disappointment though O_ODelete
Thank you so much, Nick! Good luck with uni this year!!
Bummer, I had no idea The Orphan Queen was a sampler. I requested it from EW but I don't read samplers. Ugh. I want the real thing it sounds SO GOOD!ReplyDelete
Nicole @ The Quiet Concert
ME TOO! I so want a full review copy. But I understand why they're doing samplers, to cut down on piracy. Understandable!Delete
I kind of didn't get it because The Orphan Queen was a sampler and I like to read whole books, not samplers, so I totally get your frustration. Textbooks take priority. Hope you have a good semester.ReplyDelete
Grace @ Books of Love
Yup. Yup yup yup. But it was the only thing I got this week, so I'm not too disappointed.Delete
I can't decide about Orphan Queen. I liked Jodi Meadow's Incarnate, but not sure about this one.ReplyDelete
Check out my STS
I never finished Incarnate... I might, someday, but eh. The Orphan Queen definitely seems more like something I'd enjoy!Delete
Yeah, I wasn't too keen on what they had on there. Like you, I already have Polaris. I didn't request Orphan Queen because I really hate samplers. From what I understand they only released the sampler to avoid piracy.ReplyDelete
Erin @ The Book Nut
I hate samplers too, but I'm not DYING to read The Orphan Queen, so I figured I'm good. And yup, to avoid piracy. Which is good!Delete
Textbooks are always fun, right? :D The Orphan Queen really looks interesting though. Hopefully the full ARC will be available soon.ReplyDelete
Here is my StS Post for this week
Literally... my bank account is crying. My wallet is crying. I am crying. WAAAHHH :'(Delete
Quiet weeks sometimes are more than welcome, give how overflowing our TBR lists usually are!!ReplyDelete
I hope I'll get approved for the Orphan Queen sampler!
Best of luck on the back to school, hopefully all the positiveness will continue!
I need it! And I hope you get the sampler, I'm still in pretzel mode!Delete
Thank you so much!
Oh yay, you got the text book haul too -snickers- Ain't it grand? Good luck with your studies and happy reading! My STS.ReplyDelete
Grand as in I will spend a grand by the end of the next two weeks and cry a lot ;)Delete
Thank you, Jillyn!
I know what you mean, lady! LOL we'll get there, right? Thank you!!ReplyDelete
So I need to check Edelweiss ASAP! LOLReplyDelete
Come and check out OUT's STS
And dont forget to enter the giveaways!
Leydy from OUAT
Um, YES! Go go go!Delete
I really don't understand samplers on review sites! You can't review a sampler. If they want to release a teaser they should release it to everyone on their own sites... grrr. I hope you have a great week!ReplyDelete
Under The Mountain
I probably will review several samplers at once - and then do full reviews for each book when I get them. I might get a sampler of The Mime Order, so who knows!Delete
Happy reading Alyssa. <3 And yay for pretty sampler :D I got it too. But still so heartbroken that it wasn't the whole book :( Still. I did love peeking at the sampler, hih :D Thank you for sharing. <3ReplyDelete
I know what you mean - I want the full book as well! But it cuts down on piracy, so that's a good thing. You're welcome!!Delete
The Orphan Queen sounds amazing and a sampler is better than nothing! I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading :)ReplyDelete
True true, though it will only whet my appetite! Thank you, Roy ^_^Delete
Orphan Queen looks good, hope you enjoy and have a great upcoming week.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Brandi!Delete
One book is a good thing!! I love the cover to the Orphan Queen! Enjoy!!ReplyDelete
Thanx for visiting My Weekly Wrap-Up!
Naomi @ Nomi’s Paranormal Palace
At this point, I certainly agree with you. Thank you, Naomi! And you're very welcome!Delete
I got textbooks, too haha.ReplyDelete
The Orphan Queen sounds pretty cool! I haven't read an Jodi Meadows yet though. Glad to hear your liking your schedules and classes! Hope you have a lovely week (:
Aren't we special?! All my money though :(Delete
I wasn't a fan of Incarnate (to be fair, I never finished it), but I'm excited about this one. Thank you, Cyn!!
Good luck with school! I was so sad to see that OQ was just the sampler. I saw that before I went to DL so it was a bit less of a shock. I imagine it'll be a wonderful sample though.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much! And I'm sure it's a fabulous tease - I mean, sample... hehe :DDelete
I really liked The Orphan Queen sampler! I'm definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the book!ReplyDelete
Ooo, you've already read it, awesomeeee! Good to hear!Delete
I don't do well with samplers, but I can't wait to see your thoughts! Hopefully there will be an upcoming Swoon Thursday post, hint hint. :)ReplyDelete
Personally, me either, but I could not resist. HAH! I'll definitely keep that in mind ;DDelete
