Stacking the Shelves (#238)


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 9th to Saturday, July 15th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



What a neat package! I adored What to Say Next and Tell Me Three Things and I love this swag!


The Unexpected Everything pouch; "Stay Peculiar" button

Thank you, Hannah!



Thank you so much, Ballantine! I am looking forward to reading this novel. The Bourbon Kings and The Angels' Share were great!


From NetGalley:



YAY! This is one of my most anticipated Fall publications and I'm so excited to have it for review!


Reviews from this week:

I think that sums it up! I've had a busy week at work - week four is now in the books. I can't believe I've already been working full-time for four weeks. Time really flies! It is going well so far. I'm trying to find my work/sleep/reading/blogging/social life balance, which hasn't been an easy adjustment, but I'm getting there!

  1. Tell Me Three Things looks fun, and I'm kinda curious about Invictus! Also Because You Love To Hate Me has made its way onto my list too, since an anthology of villain stories just seems too good to pass up! :)

    1. TMTT was a great novel, as was What to Say Next! I really like Because You Love to Hate Me as well - usually I'm not one for short stories, but that anthology was excellent. :D

    1. Swag is awesome! Invictus was available for download on NetGalley for the first 500 members... I was at work and I saw the email and I immediately scrambled to find my NetGalley password so I could log in on my phone (something I'd not done before!)! I hope you love The Wood, Eve!

  5. Congratulations on week 4 of working fulltime! So glad to hear that you are enjoying it. I remember when I was working fulltime and trying to figure out how to get other things done. It was hard finding a good balance. I hope you enjoy your new books/swag, and have a great week!

  23. My copy of Because You Love to Hate Me is arriving today - or at least Amazon says it is. I know there's a lot of controversy over the book and the booktubers in it but I've heard some of the stories are pretty good.

  27. Jeepers, I'm so far behind on blogging right now I can barely believe you've been working four weeks either! That's craziness... And now it's more like five! 🙈

    Sorry I've been so slack. Catching up here and there when I can!
