Top of the Shelf #17

A weekly meme on the books on the top of my list to read and books recently acquired, borrowed, or bought. Inspired by the Story Siren’s In My Mailbox.

Top of the Shelf / Currently Reading
What’s next on my to-read list for the upcoming week. I have to start learning how to juggle school reading, internship reading, and fun reading. Let’s see how this works.

I’m attempting to read the first one after my friend Arthur recommended it to me. It’s non-fiction. Not my usual kind of read so let’s see how it goes….

Bought & Received

The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens – I won this from Random Buzzers a while ago and finally got it in the mail!
Vixen by Jillian Larkin – Emi from Oktopus Ink kindly sent me her ARC to read! Thanks again, Emi. :)
XVI by Julia Karr – Bought from one of my favorite bookstores ever, the Strand.
Timeless by Alexandra Monir – Also bought from the Strand. I am never usually one to buy books, but this was my celebratory yay-I-got-the-internship present.

Swag from Author
The awesome Y.S. Lee was kind enough to send me a signed bookplate for my copy of A SPY IN THE HOUSE as well as a cool sticker!


  1. I heard Timeless and Vixen was pretty good and I want to read those too! :)

    You’re lucky to have The Strand. I’ve always wanted to visit there!

  2. Ooh, looks like a really great haul this week. I’m looking forward to your review of The Emerald Atlas. I remember when they were advertising it on RB and thinking that it looked awesome. I mean, it’s about a magical atlas. A GREEN magical atlas. Yes please, I think I want to read this. 8D I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you enjoy Vixen! :D
