Stacking the Shelves:January!

Long time no see! I’ve missed blogging so much, but I’ve been busy with this little thing called moving across the country! Luckily I am finally settled in, and ready to get back to business!

Of course, as a result of technically being homeless for about two weeks, I haven’t acquired a ton of books this past month, but I still have a few goodies to show off!

In preparation for this post I went back through my books and realized I still haven’t posted my Christmas books!

Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George
The Maze Runner Trilogy by James Dashner
Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Some of my all-time favorite books, and an illustrated version of my favorite musical, which has been out of print for twenty years and I didn’t even know existed until the week before Christmas (Thank you Amazon Prime!)



      Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel
      Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

      Two awesome fairy tale retellings to add to my stack of FTRC books! Thank you Macmillan and HarperTeen!



While driving around my new neighborhood, I found my local library nestled between a pizza place and a barber’s shop, so I went in, introduced myself, and got a library card (which I can guarantee is cuter than yours because it has a sleeping owl on it) and then, of course, a handful of books!

The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente
Doll Bones by Holly Black (audiobook)
The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson

The amazing Kristen Evey sent me a surprise little box of fairy tale goodies. The picture is crap, but it included a Little Mermaid notepad, a bar of Pinocchio soap, and a Pegasus necklace (among other awesome knick-knacks!)

How was your month? Leave links in the comments below!


  1. So glad you are back Debz. I'm interested to find how far you moved. If it took two weeks I'm going to guess it was quite a long ways. Anyways Second Star is a book I want to read this year. I'm so excited to read Cress. I also read Pivot Point this month and loved it. I can't wait for Split Second. Fairy Tale Fortnight is coming up in April and I can't wait.

    1. Well, I don't want to reveal my exact location, but I will say that we drove from coast to coast, and if we'd driven much more we would've fallen over the edge! I totally spaced FTF this year! Will have to find a way to get involved!

  2. Great haul! I hope you enjoy them.

    Check out our STS.

  3. Great stack! Can't wait to see your thoughts on them! Happy Reading! If you'd like, you can stop by my STS Following your blog and would love a follow back please :-)

  4. Rose and the Lost Princess looks adorable :D I also got Grim & Cruel beauty is FANTASTIC. I loved Cress. Happy reading!

    1. Cruel Beauty is fantastic! My review should be popping up this week! Jealous that you got to read Cress!


I love comments, and I promise I read every single one. I do my best to reply to all your meaningful comments, so come back in a couple days to see if I have! And if you see that I've responded to others comments and not yours, it's just because I've been struck dumb by your awesomeness! And if you leave me a link to your blog, I'll try to stop by and comment!

This is an award and tag-free zone! I'm honored, but I don't have the time to pass it along )=
