Stacking the Shelves (#235)


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, June 18th to Saturday, June 24th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



This is a cool surprise from Abrams - thank you!



YAY! I had no idea this was coming and I was pleasantly surprised! Thank you very much, PRH!


A bunch of swag, including a What to Say Next sampler, The Forgetting notebook, Warcross sampler, The Forbidden Wish bookmark, and more!

This is actually two trades from the same person - thank you so much, Katharine! She is awesome!


A bunch of buttons

Have I ever mentioned how amazing Jenefer is? Because she is totally amazing. Thank you for another great trade, lady!


Pique Beyond and Eleanor & Park buttons

Thank you, Carrie! More To All the Boys swag for me! Thank you for the trade, Carrie!



AHHHHHH! Thank you so much, Katie! She is the BEST! This was a fantastic trade and I feel so blessed to have worked with her (for a second time) to make this happen. I wish I could have gone to BEA to do this myself but Katie had my back. She is so great!


Hmmm, I think that's all. No ebooks this week, which is probably a good thing. In other news, this week was my first week at my new job! These past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity - from graduation to vacation to first day of work. It has been so fun and I'm ready to see where this new path takes me. Things have a way of working out! (Trust me, I'm an engineer. 😉 I can officially say that now!)

  1. Oh yay for first week at the job!! How has it been there? Do you like it?
    You get the best trades!! So many buttons!
    Is freed by flame and storm a sequel? Because the title don't looks so familiar.
    Have a good week!

    1. It has been fantastic so far! I know things will pick up and become more difficult as I learn more, but I'm excited about it.

      Girl I hunt trades down like a shark! Buttons are my thing so I'm always after those especially. :D

      Freed by Flame and Storm is a sequel indeed! The first book was so good.

      I hope you have a great week as well, Gen! =)

    I hope you've enjoyed your first week on the job and I can't wait to hear more! :)
