Stacking the Shelves #4 (For the month of February)

Hosted By Tynga's Reviews

Hello my lovely bookish people! As you know, Stacking the Shelves is a weekly post hosted by Tynga's Reviews, but I like to have a post for each month. This month, I was very blessed with AMAZING bookish mail. I feel so incredibly grateful to all the amazing publishers/authors/bookish people who have sent me the following books. February has been a hard month for me, and all this bookish mail just made my days so much brighter. I would love for y'all to take a look and leave me links to your own Stacking the Shelves posts in the comments!

Giveaway Wins
I entered very few giveaways this month, but WOW! The prizes were so absolutely wonderful!

There are just too many amazing books to list here! The books pictured above was part of a package I won from Justine Magazine! THANK YOU SO MUCH! 

Also a HUGE THANK YOU to HarperTeen for running a BOOKS THAT BURN WITH REBELLION contest! Many of the above are on my to-read list (including Divergent. Yes, I actually have not read Divergent yet, please do not hit me.)


Along with that, I won a copy of WHY WE TOOK THE CAR from Scholastic, some RUSSIAN CANDY from the amazing Jackson Pearce, SWAG from the lovely Jessica Brooks, and more SIGNED SWAG from the awesome Kelly Anne Fiore.

There are few things greater than surprise book mail. Very few, I tell you ;) Here are some of the lovely bookish STUFF that showed up in my mailbox unannounced, but DEFINITELY appreciated.
ENTANGLED TEEN, you guys have OUTDONE YOURSELVES. This is one of the most spectacular THANK YOU packages I've ever gotten. Books, swag, a $10 Amazon gift card, chocolates, a tote bag, a candle, bookmarks.. WOW. Seriously. THANK YOU. 

TorTeen and Penguin were all like, "surprise!" I was sent a finished copy of Kristen Simmon's THREE (MY FAVORITE SERIES IN THE WORLDDDD) and an extra ARC of Grasshopper Jungle! My friends saw my reading my arc of Grasshopper Jungle, and they've been dying to read it ever since. Thanks to Penguin, they can have a copy to pass around and write cute little notes in the margin and laugh over the story and whatnot.

Whoa. February was CRAZY! I just want to give each and every bookish person a hug right now, but we would be here for a LONG time if I did. So, let's share the love in the form of comments! Tell me what YOU got this week/month, or what you are dying to read!! 


oh, and P.S.
To all those who have shown me so much support and love throughout this month, an extra special THANK YOU to y'all. I wouldn't be writing this post if it wasn't for you guys.


  1. SO many books! It seems like your February was filled with lots of books. <3 Glad you're back, and I'm looking forward to whatever you've got coming up on the blog. *hugs again*

  2. Wow. That's some book haul. Happy reading!

  3. Holy crow, you got some awesome books. I'll be watching to see what you think of some of some of the ARCs!

  4. You were so lucky this month. I'm hoping Open Road Summer lives up to expectations for myself.
