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, September 21st to Saturday, September 27th?
(all links to Goodreads are provided!)
In the mail:
Both from Little, Brown UK! Interesting how a UK pub is now sending me books. I won't complain! I love Hoyt's books - I love historical romance novels in general!
I literally JUST traded a book for an ARC of Zodiac... and then Penguin decides to surprise me with this package. I'm so not complaining though! That just means GIVEAWAY!
Funny how I always say that I'm not a fan of samplers, but now I have three samplers of various novels... haha.
From the Baltimore Book Festival:
See my recap HERE! But I went to the Baltimore Book Festival on Friday, and had a blast! I met Jennifer L. Armentrout (again), Marissa Meyer, Cheryl Klam, Diana Peterfreund (again), and many bloggers! I have a giveaway! But here are the books I came back with:
An ARC of Etherworld by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam (OMG CHERYL BROUGHT THIS WITH HER SPECIFICALLY FOR ME OMG!!!)
Etherworld was the only book that I really "brought back", since it was the only one I didn't have going into the festival. Cheryl is such a sweetie, and brought the book with her, specifically for me! Thank you so much, Cheryl!!
See the full recap HERE! The Festival was sooo much fun. I won't be attending Saturday (the blogger panel and blogger dinner) or Sunday, unfortunately. But Friday was AMAZING, as it is every year!
Blast! I will not see you at the BBF then as I'm going for tomorrow, only! Bummer but I'm so glad you had fun. This is my first time going so I'm pumped for it!ReplyDelete
Aww! Another time then, Jessica! I hope you had/have fun!!Delete
I really liked Elusion! Can't wait for Etherworld :-)ReplyDelete
Em @ http://theyabookbutterfly.blogspot.com/
I hope you enjoy it when you read it!Delete
It's so absolutely amazing that the author brought an ARC of the book specifically for you!! YAY!ReplyDelete
Not a bad bookish week this one, I'd say! Happy reading and enjoy the weekend!
I think it was a great week, honestly! Which could be both a wonderful and terrible thing, LOL!Delete
Great books this week! You've reminded me that I really need to read Elusion, I kept meaning to and then reading other stuff. I saw your Baltimore Festival post, it looked like a ton of fun!ReplyDelete
Under The Mountain
You do need to read it! And the Festival is awesome, every year ^_^Delete
OOOoh lovely haul! Wish I was closer to Baltimore, I soooo would've went there! Hope you enjoy all your lovely new reads!ReplyDelete
My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
So much fun! Although, not a lot of bookish events happen in Baltimore, honestly. This is the big one.Delete
I'm jealous of a bunch o these! Nice haul.ReplyDelete
Erin @ The Book Nut
Nice haul of books. I got to see Jennifer Armentrout at CBC last week. I just love her books. Great haul.ReplyDelete
Grace @ Books of Love
Awesome! She is fab, really.Delete
YAY for lots of gorgeous books :D Ack. Cover for Zodiac looks gorgeous. <3 Hmph. I want that box, lol :) Happy reading Alyssa. <3 hope you will love everything :)ReplyDelete
I know what you mean! I love packages. Thank you!Delete
I love historical romance too but have yet to read an Elizabeth Hoyt novel. I think I've heard mixed things? I love the cover and title of that one though!ReplyDelete
Happy reading, Alyssa! <3
I love her books! I almost haven't seen mixed reviews about Hoyt's Maiden Lane series at all.Delete
Love the smell of new books! I hope you enjoy your new babies!ReplyDelete
Come and check out OUaT's STS and don't forget to ENTER our BOXES OF BOOKS giveaway!
You should read Elusion! And thanks ^_^ReplyDelete
I got a copy of Only Enchanting as well, but our covers are different. Hope we both love it. Happy reading Alyssa! :)ReplyDelete
This one is the UK version - the UK publisher has been sending me books, but I'm in the USA. Whatever, I'm not complaining! If they don't care, I don't either! Thank you, Rachel ^_^Delete
Wow the Baltimore Book festival sounds like so much fun Alyssa, you're so lucky that you were able to meet so many brilliant authors!! I hope you enjoy all your pretty books. Thanks for stopping by! :)ReplyDelete
YES! It was awesome! You're very welcome, Jasprit :DDelete
Zodiac and Their World looks good, hope you enjoy and have a great week.ReplyDelete
Thank you! You too!Delete
I stopped myself from requesting Ensnared since it'll just make me want to read the whole thing now, haha. This is why I stay away from samplers.ReplyDelete
LOL yeah... That's exactly why I don't read samplers. Except now I have three. LOLDelete
Yay for that extra copy of Zodiac! That one looks amazing! Enjoy your new books. :)ReplyDelete
Awww, it looks like you had such a good time! I wish we had something like this near me! I think you secretly like samplers. :) It's so hard to start reading a book and not be able to read the whole thing, especially when it's something you want SO BADLY. Oh wellsies. :)ReplyDelete
I hope you're having a wonderful week, Alyssa!!
I secretly/not-so-secretly hate samplers... thanks, Rachel!Delete
Haha, it's totally because publishers are sticking up samplers of the most exciting books instead of just not putting up anything for those ;-). Oo I wonder if that's what my Penguin package on Monday will contain, that would be exciting :DReplyDelete
This is true ;) I hope you love it!!Delete
