Stacking The Shelves (60)

One more week to go until BEA 2014. I am bursting with excitement! This week was Bout Of Books and you know, I did pretty good during the readathon, I read more than I had expected. Other things that have happened in my life include a rain and thunderstorm on Friday that resulted in some unexpected reading time. Also, I’ve been pretty good about exercising and working out this week. Aside from that, I read 4 books so far for Bout Of Books, hoping to have that number be 5 by the end of today. What have you all been up to? What are you reading now? I just finishedSide Effects May Varyby Julie Murphy and am now a handful of pages intoSummer And Bird by Katherine Catmull.

  5. I watched this one Youtube but totally forgot to comment. We got A LOT of the same books. I can’t wait to read Brazen even though I haven’t read the first two books. I’ve heard they are more companion novels but I still want to check them out. I’m really excited for Kiss of Broken Glass because, like you, I love books written in free verse. I’m also pretty excited for Illusions of Fate because I love Kiersten White too.

    Epic haul! Have fun reading!

  6. Not related to the books, but can I just say that I love your lip color? It’s so pretty and bright and I LOVE IT.

    Okay, these books are awesome! I think I’m most excited to read The Perilous Sea, since I’m definitely curious to see how Thomas followed up The Burning Sky.
