Stacking the Shelves (#270)

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, February 18th to Saturday, February 24th?

This week was a short week (with the holiday on Monday) but it felt like a long one, at work! On Monday I went shopping with a friend and bought new clothes, which I'm so excited about because I got some cute stuff and I needed the retail therapy. :D It's the little things!


  1. Ooh Legendary! I still need to read caraval. I guess I better get on that. Have a super weekend Alyssa!

  2. I was over the moon to get Legendary, since my co-blogger risked her life at BEA in 2016 to get us Caraval. I love that bag! This week should have gone quicker, because of the holiday, but it felt like the longest week ever for me. Enjoy all your new purchases.

  3. Niiice!! I was approved for Legendary last week and read it immediately!! Lol! It was AMAZING and sooooo good!! I think it outdoes my love for Caraval even! Lol!! Hope you will love it too!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. Ahhhh, Legendary! I'm so jealous. I was denied. Womp womp. I hope you enjoy it!

  5. Unfortunately, I had to put down Caraval because I wasn't really enjoying it. But the cover for Legendary is absolutely gorgeous! I might give it another try in the future though! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. How fun that you were able to jump on the wagon and snag it, too. Happy reading this weekend, Alyssa!

  7. Sorry it still felt like a longer week for you. Yay for some new clothes though. I'm waiting for end of Spring, I think, to get some new clothes. Right now, I need to focus more on workout stuff.


  8. It always sucks when you have a short week but it feels just as long as as regular one. Glad you got to do some shopping. :) Happy reading!


  9. Good luck with Legendary! I didn't enjoy Caravel enough to continue with the series, but I eagerly await your review to see if I need to reevaluate that decision :D
