Stacking the Shelves


I really stacked the shelves in 2015, so my goal for 2016 is to buy more ebooks and reserve the physical book purchases for those I KNOW I’ll read within the month. So far, I’m staying on track! I know we’re less than a month into the year, but I’m really proud of myself! Lol

Physical Books

I’ll be reading one book a month from the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin​ and this week I finally purchased the physical copy of A Game of Thrones! This series is gonna look beautiful on my shelves!

My amazing co-logger Jess got me a copy of When We Collided by Emory Lord on her trip to ALAMW earlier this month!! Thank you, Jess!

Lastly, I received A Thousand Nights from Jackie as part of the Traveling Books Club and I’m already half way through!


The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn #1) by Renee Ahdieh
The Orphan Queen (The Orphan Queen #1) by Jodi Meadows
Steelheart (Reckoners #1) by Brandon Sanderson
Mitosis (Reckoners #1.5) by Brandon Sanderson
Firefight (Reckoners #2) by Brandon Sanderson



I feel very lucky to have had such a great mail week, mostly thanks to Macmillan’s seasonal mailing (Thank you, Macmillan!). Also, thanks to Penguin and Scholastic! :)

I’ve added a few books to my shelves in the last few weeks most of them are middle grade. Since my daughter is participating in Battle of the Books for school we’ve been reading and quizzing each other non-stop! Here are the books I’ve picked up.

The only non-middle grade title I’ve picked up is Truthwitch. I was completely surprised when my Uppercase Box showed up with a signed hardcover! SQUEE!

I’m not going to lie, the cover of Crenshaw really grabbed me, I had to know why there was a giant cat on the cover.

Dark and Grimm speaks to my love for fairytales.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them…cuz DUH!

Twistrose Key again the cover grabbed me and it sounds like an epic adventure!

    I really want to read Rebel of the Sands, and I was thinking of requesting Kristopher Jansma’s newest novels seeing as he teaches the creative writing courses at my college. The cover is gorgeous too, not gonna lie. Nice haul ladies!

    Rebel of the Sands is one that I’m super excited to get! I hope it’s great! I’m really looking forward to Emery’s book too! I really need to read The Wrath and the Dawn at some point this year, as well as some Sanderson!

    I’ve been wanting to check out Brandon Sanderson’s novels for a while. Steel heart sounds so good! I also want to check out Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them before the movie comes out. Enjoy, ladies! :)

    I also got A thousand nights this month (despite some of the negative reviews I’ve read about it) Isn’t the cover gorgeous?

    Rebel of sands is HIGH on my wish list. It sounds amazing!

    A tale dark and Grimm is really enjoyable and I can’t wait to pick up my copy from Truthwitch.

    Happy reading :)!
