The Books I’m Currently Enjoying
I’ve been quite distracted by my other books that actually have decent-sized chapters (why does this book have 30-100 page long sections? I like chapter breaks!), but I’m certainly intrigued by this book so far. I haven’t quite decided how I feel about it, but I’m definitely intrigued, and I’ll leave it at that for now.
The Best of the Best This Week (Or the last Three or Four Weeks)…
Look at all the books! And the last book, Please Don’t Be True, is an omnibus with three Alice books in it, so even more books! I’m happy to say that there have been some good books to start the year, but nothing super-amazing so far, just 3 and 4 star books so far. But, obviously, there’s still plenty of time left…
…and the Unfortunate Rest
I didn’t hate this book really, but I just didn’t connect to it enough and spent too much time rolling my eyes at the protagonist’s antics. I do think most bookish people will at least enough this book, but it wasn’t for me.
The Books on the Reading Shelf
I did not do a good job of limiting myself in recent library trips, despite the fact that classes start tomorrow. I did have fun creating this picture of an overly-large TBR pile, though.
The New Books I’m Anticipating
Only two books on my to-read shelf came out this month, which is a weird feeling. I already read Bookishly Ever After, obviously, and hopefully I’ll get my hands on Firsts, another debut, soon enough.
I added books in twos, apparently, all from books and authors I’ve read recently. If you look up at the very crowded TBR pile picture, you’ll see that I already got volumes two and three of Alex + Ada from the library and will probably read them soon.
The New Covers and News of the Book World
Only one new cover in three or four weeks? Come on! It’s cute enough, but nothing spectacular.
A Picture, Rather than 1,000 Words
A new bookshelf! I call it my Unfinished Shelf – the top row are books I need to read or reread before I decide where to put them or even keep them; shelves 2 and 3 are unfinished series waiting for the rest of their series to be bought; and the bottom shelf is unfinished series that I probably won't complete because I lost interest, but I still might reread at least once before getting rid of them. I love it. 😍 #bookstagram #bookshelves #PrettyBooks
Look at my pretty new bookcase! YAY FOR MORE BOOKISH SPACE!
