Pretty damn accurate if you ask me…
Here’s what’s happened this week!
- I ONLY HAVE TWO MORE HSC EXAMS LEFT. YES. YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY.
- Stacking the Shelves! I went to the library during note-taking — I didn’t mean to borrow so many books. Promise.
- I, um, took a picture of my current TBR pile. I should point out that this pile only includes my library books… so this isn’t including all the un-read bought books I have. I HAVE A PROBLEM. (Yes some of these were on my StS post last week, hence why not all of these books are on my list today.)
- I’ve actually had some time to write this week. Huzzaah! So mainly I’ve been working on The Empire of Stars, and I just finished chapter three. Chapter four, here I come…
- My bookcase will be arriving next week! EXCITING. (There shall be pictures.)
Stacking the Shelves
This is the meme where you can highlight books you’ve bought/borrowed/gifted/received for review. You can read more on the meme and how to get involved here!

The Book of Days by K.A. Barker
Oooh, the pretty! So excited for this one… I’ve heard good things about it!
Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
Have heard mixed things about this one… buuuut I really want to give it a chance. I love road-trip sort of stories.
Spark by Rachael Craw
OH MY GOSH I FINALLY HAVE A COPY OF THIS BOOK. I’ve been wanting to read this one for soo long! I was stoked when I saw it in the library.
The Knife of Never Letting Go
Patrick Ness?! HELL YEAH.
Forgive me, Lennard Peacock
So I actually have no idea what this book’s about. But I’ve heard good things from the author, so that’s a positive start.
Mila 2.0: Renegade
The covers are so gorgeous! The first one was rather “meh” but I hope this one is better.
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
I’ve been wanting to read this one for ages! I hadn’t been able to find a copy in a store, so was thrilled when I found this.
Code Name Verity / Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Because apparently I like to inflict emotional pain on myself.
Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier
This one looks great!
The Girl Who… by Catherynne M. Valente
(Both the second and third book. And yes, I was WAY to lazy to type those titles out ahaha.)
Icons by Margaret Stohl
(You can’t exactly see this one in the pic; it’s been covered up by too many books….)
Fractured by Teri Terry
About time I catch up on sequels!
The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R Carey
Thanks to Cait @ Notebook Sisters, I just had to borrow this one!!!
