New Year, New Commitment (STS)


         Hi everyone! I know it has been SO LONG since the last time I've posted but that is simply because life has gotten in the way. As a teenager, I'm going through classes at high school as well as getting things such as my license. But with a new year, comes a new commitment. I miss reading and blogging about all the great books out there. Instead of the typical stacking the shelves post, I would really appreciate it if you all could comment below some new awesome reads for me! I've been so out of the loop for so long, I'm not even completely sure what is out there. Thank you all for sticking around and I promise I'll get back to my usual routine.

     I do have a few little Nook book finds to share with you all though. This week I downloaded four new books to my nook (all free) because I really need to get back into reading!


  1. Those look like fun, hope you enjoy them! It's always great finding freebies that look good.

  2. I love the look of 'A French Girl in New York'; hope you have a good reading week ahead with some time to sit down with one of these! :)

  3. Hmm, here a few from different genres that I've liked:

    Ada Adams-Revamped, Rachel Caine-Morganville Vampires, Suzy Turner-Raven, Alyxandra Harvey-My love lies bleeding, Karen Mahoney-The Iron Witch, Jana Oliver-Forsaken, Melissa Eskue Ousley-Sign of the Throne, Suzy Turner-The ghost of Josiah Grimshaw,

    Suzanne Collins-Hunger Games, David Estes-Moon Dwellers, DelSheree Gladden-Inquest, Ambelin Kwaymullina-Interrogation of Ashala Wolf, John Marsden-Tomorrow when the war began, Susan Beth Pfeffer-Life as we knew it, Carrie Ryan-The Forest of Hands and Teeth, DelSheree Gladden-Wicked Hunger, RJ Crayton-Life First

    Markus Zusak-The Book Thief, Geraldine Brooks-Year of Wonders,

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  4. Ooo I love the cover for A French girl in NY, looks very modern day fairytale!

  5. These are new to me, but i LOVE the cover to A French Girl in New York! Hope you enjoy them all :)

    As for recommendations, I just finished All the Bright Places and it nearly did me in with feels. I am trying to think of some other recent favorites... The Cure For Dreaming by Cat Winters, Some Fine Day by Kat Ross, The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black (which will be coming out tomorrow)... so very many, it is hard to pick :) Hope you are able to get back into the swing of things!

Date rape—from the accused’s point of view—is the subject of this “finely crafted and thought-provoking page-turner” (SLJ), a National Book Award Finalist from Printz Honor–winning author Chris Lynch. Now available in a tenth-anniversary edition.
Keir Sarafian may not know much, but he knows himself. And the one thing he knows about himself is that he is a good guy. A guy who’s a devoted son and brother, a loyal friend, and a reliable teammate. And, maybe most important of all, Keir is a guy who understands that when a girl says no, she means it. But that is not what Gigi Boudakian, childhood friend and Keir’s lifelong love, says at all. What Gigi says seems impossible to Keir—something inexcusable—the worst thing he can imagine, the very opposite of everything he wants to be. As Keir recalls the events leading up to his f…

Stacking the Shelves (8)

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

I have come to realize that I miss book blogging! This is something I used to love doing, and I really need to get back to doing things that I love. To kick it off, I went on a trip to Barnes and Noble to pick up some books to get me back into the swing of things.


Dispatches from the Edge by Anderson Cooper Settle for More by Megyn Kelly Time of the Twins by Kendall and Kylie Jenner
Only three this week because I'm just starting to read again. Let me know of any new titles that interest you, as well as what you all got this week! Happy Reading : )

Waiting on Wednesday (2)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Home is where the bodies are buried.

Darkly humorous and heart-wrenchingly beautiful, Jennifer Longo’s YA debut about a girl stuck living in a cemetery will change the way you look at life, death, and love.

Leigh sells graves for her family-owned cemetery because her father is too lazy to look farther than the dinner table when searching for employees. Working the literal graveyard shift, she meets two kinds of customers:

Pre-Need: They know what’s up. They bought their graves a long time ago, before they needed them.

At Need: They are in shock, mourning a loved one’s unexpected death. Leigh avoids sponging their agony by focusing on things like guessing the headstone choice (mostly granite).

Sarcastic and smart, Leigh should be able to stand up to her family and quit. But her w…
