Stacking the Shelves


This week I added 4 books to my collection. From my secret sister I received LegendProdigy and Champion by Marie Lu. I’ve had my sites set on this series for a long time and I’m excited to finally get to dive in.

From my Uppercase Box, I received Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom. I’m pretty pumped to read it as well. Looks like I’ll have plenty to read with my time off for Christmas!



I’ve gotten some awesome books the past two weeks!! Tis the season.
