Hello! I hope you had a fabulous Christmas. Mine was lovely if you don’t count the lack of snow, and I’m so excited for the new year! I hope it will be one filled with good memories and friends and family for you and me both. But for now, let’s see what books I’ve added to my shelves this week, shall we?

Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell


So I’m a bit bummed—well, heartbroken is a better word for it—because Insurgent is out of stock at Barnes & Noble. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO GO ON WITH MY LIFE UNTIL YOU HAVE RESTOCKED, YOU @#$%@#!!! But seriously, I don’t think I’ll be able to function properly until I’ve finished the Divergent series. It’s a problem.

Anyway, I’m SO excited about these new goodies. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, and happy new year!

I hope you’ve had a great week filled with books and holiday cheer! I sort of let go a bit seeing as nobody ever buys me books for Christmas (probably because they assume I have every book ever written) so I decided to find myself some bookish presents. I have no shame.

Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy by Karen Foxlee (thanks @ Random House Children’s)

Oh my God, you guys, look at me controlling myself on Netgalley. *throws confetti*

From the Bookshop

A Great and Terrible Beauty The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind 93101 1333503713580951 6567017 12000020

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray (I know, I’m like 10 years late but whatever)

The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind by Meg Medina

Tales from the Arabian Nights by Richard Francis Burton (not this edition, the Barnes & Noble hardcover one)

Divergent by Veronica Roth (yes, I know I’m late)

United We Spy by Ally Carter (I’m totally NOT going to cry at the ending, I am strong damn it)

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz


The last two books have been on my TBR list for FOREVER so when I found them at my local used bookstore—okay, say what you will about supporting the author, but a) I’m poor, and b) I think of it as a rescue mission to keep books off the shelves of used bookstores and in my loving, underpaid arms—I made an unladylike noise (although when are my noises ever NOT unladylike?) and nearly impaled myself on a display trying to grab them from their respective shelves. CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY YOU GUYS IT’S A THING.

Anyway, that’s what I’ve added to my library this week. I’d love to hear what books you’ve found recently, so link me up in the comments! Happy holidays!
Love, Sam

The Importance of Being Earnest and Four Other Plays by Oscar Wilde (for school)

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly

The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney

Literary Britain: A Reader’s Guide to Its Writers and Landmarks by Frank Morley (a birthday gift from my girlfriend)

A collection of Robert Burns poetry (also a birthday gift from my girlfriend, but I couldn’t find the right edition, so Penguin Classics will have to do!)

Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

I was determined to go book-hunting yesterday, and it went quite well. Today is my birthday, so I thought I might as well treat myself to some good books. I’ll honestly probably go back to the bookstore today just because I have no self-control. And also I really need to get on the Divergent series again and stop having to cover my eyes every time somebody mentions Allegiant.

In other news, you think bookcases are unfeeling inanimate objects? I am 99.99% sure I felt my bookcase judging me when I added all eight of these books to one of the last empty little patches of shelf remaining. The struggle is real.

What books have you added to your shelf this week? Link me up in the comments! I’d love to see it! Have a great weekend!

Love, Sam

I really haven’t gotten much at all this week as I’ve caught every illness under the sun and am currently swathed in blankets surrounded by tissues, cough drops, and soup. Hopefully I’ll get better over the weekend, since next week is finals and I have absolutely no time for being sick.

Light in August by William Faulkner

She Captains: Heroines and Hellions of the Sea by Joan Druett

Successful Television Writing by Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin

Let us all join hands and sing praises to my self-control while sharing in the glow of restraint. I mean, you guys, four books in a week? Four? This is a proud moment in my reading career.

Also, Light in August is for my lit class and I’m fighting back the automatic student response: “Oh, God, another one.” So if you’ve read it and you liked it, pleasepleaseplease comment and say how fantastic and wonderful it is and how much I’ll love it because I need motivation in spades.

Until tomorrow!

I’ve recently sold my soul to Netgalley, so I’ve got a few new additions to my shelf to share, though fortunately (at least for my wallet) not as many as last time. Although I don’t plan to review all of these books (except the ARCs of course), if you see anything in particular you’d like me to review, let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can do!

*If you’ve seen my update post, you probably already know that Julia is a very good friend of mine who just self-published her first novel, The Hazel Tree. From what I’ve seen, it looks like a pretty fabulous book. I’ll be reviewing it most likely in early November, so stay tuned for that as well.

**I’ve actually already read this gorgeous novel, so if you’d like to know my thoughts on it, check back on Monday for my official review.

See you Monday!
