There are lots of S’s in that title. Okay, so let’s talk about this week. I was sick for the first half, meaning I missed an assessment task and had to get a doctor’s certificate and everything. I was like, crap, what if I don’t pass the test to be sick? What if they don’t believe me? Of course, my worry was for nothing.
So yeah, lots of school stuff this week: an English speech, a monologue for drama, a legal studies test and a story due for Extension English. Tiring! And this time next week, I’ll be furiously preparing for two weeks of exams. Good things from that? I get to stay off school when I don’t have exams. Woo!
Now let’s do some Stacking the Shelves. I’m thinking that Stacking the Shelves will be a fortnightly thing, because 1) I’m not as fast a reader as some of you bloggers out there, and 2) I can showcase even more books! I couldn’t take photos this week unfortunately, so internet covers will have to do.
Stacking the Shelves is a book meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.
Because it just looked too cute! This is one of my most-anticipated autumn reads 🙂
I got Looking for Alibrandi from the fabulous Mel at YA Midnight Reads. In return, I sent off The Sky Is Everywhere, a book that everyone else loved and I didn’t.
Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares – so back in December, I won a prize pack of 20 books from Allen and Unwin (!!!!). This was one of those books, delayed because it wasn’t in stock yet. So excited to read this one!
The Last Shot – second in the series by Michael Adams. I won this thanks to Gina Scarcella at Behind A Million And One Pages, on behalf of (again) Allen and Unwin. The author is Aussie and therefore awesome.
That’s it for Stacking the Shelves this week! I anticipate having lots of new books for the next time, so stay tuned 🙂
At the time of scheduling this post, I’m just about to start this after having finished Scarlet by Marissa Meyer.
Books Recently Read:
And all three were GREAT. I’ll be reviewing Scarlet on Monday so look out for that!
(mostly because it’s overdue at my school library!)

This just looks so relaxing. Now I’m feeling sleepy….
