– I got a bazillion books. Okay, not that many. But it has made my TBR quite a bit taller.
– I realised that, after all my whingeing for about SEVEN YEARS, my exams are next week. So that’s…exciting (??).
– This was my last week of proper year 11, since I’ll be doing year 12 next term.
– And that’s terrifying enough for one week.
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.
THAT IS EIGHT BOOKS. THAT IS A LOT OF BOOKS.
So I came home onnnnn Tuesday, I think? And there was this BOX from Scholastic. In this box was:
The Maze Runner by James Dashner – the movie cover. Normally I’m not a fan of movie covers, but I DO NOT CARE because it looks amazing.
Wickedpedia by Chris Van Etten – something about Wikepedia, I’m guessing?
Followers by Anna Davies – this and Wickedpedia are horror, or thriller or something, so that’s exciting.
The Last Thirteen – 4 by James Phelan – this is like the tenth book in the series, so I’m not sure I’ll end up reading it.
Paper Planes by Allayne L. Webster – this one looks great!! It’s based on a true story and it’s about a Bosnian refugee who fled to Australia, so I’m really excited to read this. That’s the great thing with unsolicited copies, sometimes – you discover things like this!
So thank you, Scholastic, for all those!!! 🙂
Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis – another surprise book. And it’s a lovely HARDCOVER too! It’s…I think it’s fantasy? I think. It looks interesting.
Thanks Thames and Hudson for this one!
The Jewel by Amy Ewing – the cover for this one is beautiful. And I hope I like it, because dystopians are a bit hit-and-miss for me.
Thanks Walker Books! 😀
The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick – I’m reading this one at the moment, and while the writing’s not the best, it’s SUCH a good companion to the videos.
Books Read Since Last Week
The Rapunzel Dilemma was a bit…meh, to be honest. But you should totally read The Cinderella Moment.
Falling Into Place was O M FREAKING G. That’s a thing, I promise. IMMEDIATE five stars. Just. Seriously. It is AMAZING. I’ll be reviewing it soon and you can expect lots of caps from me.
The Realm of Possibility was a bit meh as well. Some parts of it, the writing was beautiful, but there were too many POVs for my liking. But I’ll be reviewing this soon as well.
Because why read one book when you can read two? I just really wanted to start Lizzie Bennet.
Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan
I’m SO EXCITED to read this, because it sounds amazing.

Other Things of Importance
So I lead sprints on the Twitter account @FriNightWrites every Friday. And unfortunately, I’m having to step down from that, because I’m just not finding the time recently. So if you’re an Aussie writer and you’d like to take over my spot, message me in comments or on Twitter, or email me at emily (dot) mead3 (at) live (dot) com (dot) au
It’s a lot of fun 🙂
